“Excellent affordable hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

Much has already been said about the fantastic location, with the airport limousine from Haneda stopping at its doorstep, and minutes away on-foot to the Shinjuku Station, shops and eateries. The hotel has a really classy and comfortable lobby area. The hotel was offering Sunroute Club membership for free when I checked in, and this entitled us to check-out at 1pm. Downsides are: the twin room I had was really small, with insufficient space to open a single piece of check-in luggage; there was no wardrobe, just a hanging space next to the door that was more suited for coats and jackets; the buffet breakfast offering was very limited. But for the location at that price, I would most definitely stay there again.

Stayed here for 7 nights. Then location is fantastic, next to the subway station, 5 mins walk to the JR East station. Plenty of cafes, restaurants within a few mintues' walk from the hotel.
Just crossing the junction 2 minutes away is the area of well known blocks where there are possibly close to 50 or more restaurants. These cover the whole range of Japanese cuisines, from fast food to elaborate teriyaki, sushi setups. 3 or 4 convenience stores are in this area alone. There is also Takashimaya, Tokyu Hands, and a few other department stores next to the JR Shinjuku station.

The hotel itself is well kept, staff are extremely efficient. Rooms are small but that is expected of central Tokyo hotels. Those with a lot of luggage are well advised to pick the bigger rooms. The front office staff are helpful, giving clear advise on timing of Airport Limosine Bus and arranging the booking. The bus drops off travelers right tomthe door step of the hotel from Narita Airport. This is recommended over taking the trains for those with kids in tow and with plenty of luggage.

The Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku hands down a fantastic western-style hotel. I recommend anyone travelling with a friend to consider booking this hotel since the cost of sharing a decent hotel room is not that much more than getting a "private" ish room at a hostel. But the level of comfort and convenience is orders of magnitude higher.

Bathroom amenities include hair dryer, hair brushes, razors, cotton swabs. I found it interesting that the hotel staff replenishes hair combs they are being used. Overall the room was very clean, bed sheets feel fresh and crisp, and the mattress was comfortable.

Like what the others have already mentioned, the location is fantastic. It's literally steps away from Shinjuku station which gives you access to JR Trains, JR Buses, Tokyo Metro and other private lines. You are within walking distance to the tower district, department stores and entertainment and shopping. For those who like to walk, it's a very lovely 20-30 min walk to Harajuku and Omotesando as well.

There's a Denny's nearby which offers incredibly cheap breakfasts (400-600 Yen per person for a full meal with a drink included). Keep in mind that Japanese Denny's are not the same as American Denny's in that they do not serve greasy fried food. Across the street from the main entrance is a Japan Post Office equipped ATMs which accepts ATM Cards issued by foreign banks.

One thing that others have also brought up is that the area is VERY crowded, as Shinjuku is a major commuter hub. With that said, it is best to try to avoid morning and afternoon rush hour when you are arriving to check in or leaving for the airport or somewhere else in Japan. People are very polite and courteous, and they will try to make way for those with large pieces of luggage. Even if it's no trouble for them it may still be troublesome for you, the traveler, to lug your luggage between the hotel and the station.

Accessing the hotel:

The Friendly Airport Limousine can drop you right off the front entrance of the hotel, though getting into the city may be slow.

You can also take the JR Narita Express which is faster and more comfortable. To bypass some of the crowd, I would recommend exiting Shinjuku station by taking the Shinjuku Southern Terrace (新宿サザンテラス), and make a right when you see the Krispy Kreme Donut shop.

Location is a pleasant hour's ride on the Narita Express from the airport terminal to Shinjuku Station, plus a 5-minute walk. The trip is pleasanter and faster than services that use the crowded Tokyo highways, for no greater price. The only trick is orienting yourself at Shinjuku; look for a "south" exit and walk a block past the McDonalds.

My "bright single" room was small but not unreasonable for one person on a business trip. There was generally everything I needed, except that I would have liked some drawers for putting clothing away. The desk was quite usable once I moved various things out of the way; Internet (through a cable) was free and worked well. The bed was of "double" size.

Photos show a seemingly drab building but the entrance and inside are nice. The breakfast buffet (additional charge) was reasonable and in general I found this hotel to be good value for the money in expensive Tokyo.

Stayed here a while ago but I would recommend this hotel as it was in a brilliant location! The room was quite small but it didn't matter because we were out of the room all the time but you couldn't beat the location! There is a nice bar and nice restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

This is my second time to be booked in in Sunroute Hotel Chain. Like the first first experience this hotel provided me essentially what I need to have a comfortable stay away from home...

As a foreigner in Japan, the first criteria usually is if you can book online in English... the Hotel provides as such.

Second, since my conference venue is about 10 minutes walk, they were very accommodating to have my luggage kept until check in, same for check out... they kept my luggage long prior to my leaving.

Location is always the likely advantage I see for most Sunroute branches. It has almost direct access to the Toei Line- Shinjuku Station, which is by first hand experience the busiest and the most complicated stations of all of Japan.The Sunroute Shinjuku Exit is very easy, and accessible...Underground connection too to my conference venue.

Though the room size is a bit small for any standard western hotel, the provisions are complete, from basic toiletries to equipment (flat TV, ref, bar, water boiler, ice maker, ironing). You have well secured entry too... Plus free LAN internet in every room and for WIFI they have a guests' lounge with public terminals too.

Breakfast is of good value, ample choice for Japanese or western type. Special mention for the "healthy" croissant and bacon.... the bread was crispy and creamy without the heavy butter feel. the bacon too is almost fat free.

The house keeping staff maintained my room well at the same time being ecologically responsible.

I would definitely recommend this hotel. Book early for special discounts....

Really good location with easy access to almost everyway. TOEI station entrance just right beside the hotel and less than 5mins walk to Shinjuku station. Nice room size and very clean room with everything u need. They even provide body sponge which most of the hotel don't provided. Staff are very friendly in all way. It's a highly recommend hotel. Will come back again the next time i'm in Tokyo
