Less than three minutes walk from the train station. Excellent 24 hours grocery store just outside hotel. Fast food such KFC and Burger King at your doorsteps. There is also a $2shop across the road. Love the location, a few stops away from harajuku, shibuya, etc. Small room but the location make IT for the small space.

We chose this hotel as it was the nearest we could find to Waseda University, which we needed to be close to. The location of this hotel is great. Only two stops from Shinjuku station, and about 100 metres from Takadanobaba station. We found our way there after arriving at Tokyo station by Shinkansen from Kyoto very easily. It is... More

Location is very convenient next to train station. Everything is very small: TV, Hotel room, toilet. Quite convenient for restaurants and fast food centers. Value for money. Staff can not speak fluent English. Service levels can be improved. Internet is very slow.

This hotel is 3 minutes walk from Takadanobaba station. You can never be hungry if you stay at this hotel. McDonald's, Burger King, Yoshinoya, 7Eleven and many more are reachable within 5 minutes walk. Next to the hotel is Okasi no Machioka, a shop that sells cheap sweets and snacks. And next to this shop is a discount store called... More

I concur with many others about the size of this and probably many other rooms at the Sunroute. Maybe alright for just 1 person with minimal luggage, which is what i was. I wasn't looking for anything fancy anyway, so room 428 suited my purpose. My window has a "lovely view" of the next door building wall..The bathtub, well ,... More

Okay, so the rooms are smaller than a Kangaroo's pouch and the bar closes earlier than most fast food restaurants. But it is good value and ideal for anyone travelling who isn't looking to lounge around their hotel in between business meetings. Modern, clean, tidy and good value compared to many in the area.

I know that spaces in Tokyo are small but a room with not even a wardrobe is difficult for me to understand. There is no space to put your bag, not even a bench beyond the bed, the desk and the chair. I, and my colleagues I discovered, we put the bag on the bed and then on the floor,... More

Stayed here for 13 days while visiting our son. Size was bigger than typical Japanese hotels. Very clean. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was all one piece, like a cruise ship bathroom. Many toiletries in room. Refrigerator, hair dryer, etc. Staff spoke very very very little English. If my son wasn't able to converse for us it would have been an... More

Efficient, friendly staff and close to both subways and JR Shinjuku station. We found enough English speaking staff for our needs. They printed out a map complete with transportation details for a couple of destinations we were trying to get to (museums and park). The rooms were average sized for Japan in this price category!

The hotel is close to the train station, restaurants, shops and convenient store where they sell Japanese food such as sushi & also a variety of Japanese food for breakfast. They also have a microwave for the customers to heat the food. The hotel is very clean but the rooms are small.

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku
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.
