This hotel is very new- the rooms are funky and modern, although incredibly small (as expected). The staff are very professional and fantastic with offering suggestions on where to eat and providing any assistance as required. Breakfast is a very good western/ japanese spread up in the restaurant with great views over Shinjuku. It is abit of a walk from... More

We stayed for 5 nights in the "Luxury Designer Double/Mature" room and were very pleased with the room itself and the amenities. With the Executive Rooms, you have access to the Executive Lounge on the 13th floor, which provides drinks, snacks, etc from 9am - 10pm every day. Our room was on the 13th floor, which had a great view... More

We chose the Moderate Hollywood Twin in 2nd floor so it's not very quiet in the night. The room is modern and clean; the bed is enormous and comfortable; however the couch area does seem too crowded to fit in the table. The counter staff speaks perfect English and is very helpful. However the convenience store is a little bit... More

We arrived at Granbell as our first stop in Japan and we really enjoyed it. The standard room is very small works if you're a couple or close friends but might be awkward. There's no door for the bathroom and the bathroom has a window into the bed room. If your not shy its cozy! Location nice but literally in... More

very good location, near the metro and many interesting things in walking distance. The standard rooms are very small, the double bed is just big enough for a European average size person. The twin room is only a little better. 2 small single beds, no room really for suitcases. The superior rooms are not much more expensive but well worth... More

Our key takeaway from this place is - do not stay here if you like concierge services and ad-hoc housekeeping requests. Also if you enjoy being addressed by your name in reply emails (during an email conversation with the hotel - during which I always signed my name - they kept replying with "Dear Madam". And then later they even... More

Although the hotel is not on the main road, it's not too far from Shinjuku Station by cab which costs approx. 3,000yen, shared by 4 persons, it's reasonable. The size of the room is small but the designer managed to packed all the necessities into the small space, am impressed. We were able to find some nice food around the... More

Our stay at this hotel was a pleasure. Even though most of the reviews talk about the 'red light district', at no time does one ever feel unsafe, in fact it's quite the opposite. Love hotels that surround the district are merely there for engaged/dating couples to meet as Tokyo is so crowded that they usually cannot have privacy at... More

In the middle of the red-light district this hotel is situated. You can stay here for a couple of hours and pay for the room.. We booked a suite with lounge access. The check in was not friendly at all. At the lounge there were no staff and nor food or alcoholic beverages prepared. We had to ask staff in... More

Stayed in this hotel from the 2nd of April till the 11th 2015 and have really enjoyed it. I found it to be a lovely and very welcoming hotel, great for our first time in Japan. The room itself is cozy and modern with cool artwork on the wall and a great view of the kabukicho area of Shinjuku. Very... 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.
