The location of this hotel is excellent - it's about a five minute walk from the main areas in Shinjuka and just under ten minutes to the main train station. You don't walk through the prettiest of areas to get there but it's fine and you see some interesting sites, especially at night.
What you don't see on the website/materials is it's surrounded by manky looking buildings which I though was a touch misleading - not a glorious orange sunset as you see in the pictures at the hotel.
The room itself was small but absolutely fine. Very clean and well tidied every day by the staff. One annoying thing was the limited TV channels which wasn't a bother too much but at night it would have been nice to have BBC News or something on in the background - only Japanese channels though.
The bed was firm, perhaps too firm for some people. The room also had a fridge, hairdryer, good shower and bath. However, they ONLY SERVE HOTDOGS for breakfast which I thought was awful and misleading, especially as Expedia doesn't state this on the site when booking. Not impressed at all with this.
The staff speak English and give directions.
Overall good, but the TV, breakfast and misleading images of location don't make it great, especially as it was nearly £300 for four nights.
