The rooms are a bit larger than normal ones I have found in Tokyo but are basic and old fashioned. No coffee in rooms only green tea which is a let down but ok. Nothing I would complain about but there are better hotels in the vacinity.

11 of us spent 4 nights in this hotel in January. We had some challenges at check-in getting the rooms we had booked. After several conversations we managed to get a triple room, two twins and two semi-doubles. All rooms smelt of smoke - but opening the window helped this a little. We also needed the window open to sleep... More

I stayed at Hotel Sunlite Shinjuku for just one night. The hotel is in a great location, easy walking distance from Shinjuku station (if you can find the right exit!), and of course the fabulous Golden Gai. The room was small, but I was expecting that. The thing I wasn't expecting was the smell of the stale cigarettes, or the... More

It was good value for money! The rooms are v compact and small but the location is amazing and very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful and most importantly could speak in english. The breakfast was good.

Stayed there last 01 Oct 2014 till 09 Oct 2014 at room 514. I had a great stay there and it's only 7300 Yen which is very cheap considering the hotel is within the Shinjuku area and along Meiji Dori. It's only 15 minutes walking distance to Aikikai Hombu Dojo and a few minutes away from the subways, restaurants and... More

Staying in Shinjuku

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
