4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

I can't talk much about value since I actually snuck into this hotel with my best friend who had a single booking. lol
It's a small room, but it had a kettle-humidifier, a mini fridge, TV and A/C/heater. The bathroom was also tiny, but it did the trick. Be warned that once you take your room key out of the slot, all the power goes off in the room - not just the lights, but the sockets (so don't expect to charge things while you're out) and the fridge (so don't put anything perishable in there).

They even provided pyjamas.

Breakfast was rice, miso soup, veggies and pasta salad.

This is a good Toyoko Inn! Buy the membership card to get a discounted rate, but even without it, this is a reasonably priced hotel. It's a 15min walk from Shinjuku staion, and although Kabuki-cho has a bit of a reputation, I have always felt safe and enjoyed the walk there. The rooms are good with complementary toiletries and free wired internet, and best of all, free breakfast! I really like the Toyoko Inn breakfast, and it's great to get it free when similarly priced hotels charge for it.

Stayed two nights in this branch of Toyoko Inn. Great location and quiet part of Kabuki-cho area. The room had a big bed, safe, kettle, and a fridge. Breakfast consist of a selection of Japanese items.

I like their option for having a small discount for not having your room cleaned. They do provide a change of towels which they hang on the door. If you're rushing, don't take the lift at 10 a.m. because it takes forever (check out time, and cleaners going to clean).

The only thing that can be improved here is the free wifi. Very sketchy and disconnects frequently. At times the best wifi was in my bathroom!

Stayed at this hotel which is the best deal you can get if you wanna be in shinjuku area. It's about 20 mins walk from JR shinjuku east exit, quite a walk but can't complain for the price you are paying. The rooms are typical toyoko inn style, clean, small and well equipped. Its quiet at night even though It's near the Kabuki Cho area. Highly recommended but remember to book in advance, vacant rooms are hard to get!!

Location is just in the heart of shinjuku and very good price. In Japan you need a good bed, a clean room and a confortable bathroom. Rooms are small but very clean. If you travel around Japan and Korea, it's worth to make a membership card to get discounts,etc. If you don't want that your towels and linen are changed, they give you a good discount

Good hotel in a convenient location, just a short walk from the bustle of Shinjuku and the train station etc. Our room was at the front of the hotel on the second floor but still remained peaceful. Staff friendly, hotel very clean at all times. I left my iphone in my room on the side table by mistake for an entire day and when I came back it was still there just as I left it.

Breakfast good, free water, free Wifi, decent air conditioning system in the room and lots of nice little extras like toiletries, robes etc all made our stay comfortable :)
Only thing I'd recommend is to bring your own towels, as they were the tiniest towels we've ever seen!
