This place was fairly priced, central to the area we wanted to be in. It was small, but all the places seemed to be in Japan. Otherwise it was great. Clean, good service from the staff and they let us borrow their adaptor for our phones which as really nice.

I stayed here as part of a tour so cannot comment on the price of the hotel, however I think from what I have seen it is great value for the location. The hotel is very central. Not a huge fan of the immediate area, full of host clubs and seedy foreigners trying to get your attention at night, but... More

This was my go to place for staying in Tokyo before I moved here. I've stayed no less than half a dozen times. Understand that.... -It's a no frills business hotel -The rooms are small -It's not romantic -It's located in an area that's good for nightlife (it's actually a red light district) -It's located about 800m from the nearest...

OMG it was shocking this hotel was a nightmare! It smelt awful, we asked for non smoking and where put in a smoking room anyway. There is no clothes hanging room and nowhere to put your bags, even by Japanese standards the room was tiny. Also windows didn't always shut so you might freeze in winter

With an average of USD50 per night, I think this budget hotel is valued for money. As other reviewers mentioned, the decorations are a bit old but the entire hotel is well maintained. It comes in almost everything you need including a light breakfast, free public computers and printer, and the room size is decent (compared to other hotels in... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in an Economy Double Room in early December 2014. Paid roughly US$170 in total for 2 people. Pros: - Great Location: 5mins walk from Higashi-Shinjuku Station, 15mins walk from JR Shinjuku Station. Very central & an easy enough walk to the subways. Convenience store nearby - Has Airconditioning/Heater: Not centrally controlled *whew*. You can adjust... More

No qualms at all on the room and facilities -everything were great n comfy for the price. All female employees made the stay even better. Just prepare to walk 10 mins out to nearest train station exit, going through back alley of Kabuki-cho. Fear not..it's a safe and pretty interesting walk along the alley

Bed is a lil hard yes but the rooms are considered big as I opted for the double room. It is also about 15mins walk from the main jr shinjuku station. I would... More

Pretty good hotel. Clean, decent sized rooms and bathroom. The bed was the least comfortable of the 5 hotels we stayed in in Japan- very hard. Helpful, friendly staff with good english. A bit of a walk from Shinjuku station, around 15 minutes. This would be too much with luggage, however we caught a taxi and it was only 800... More

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.
