Anyone who has stayed in Tokyo knows it isn't a cheap place for accommodation. So I personally think that this hotel lived up to what I had paid. My boyfriend and I just wanted a simple place to stay that was reasonable priced, had a comfy enough bed, our own bathroom and easy to get around from there - and... More

We are in tokyo for 7 days and we found no other accomodation for 100eur per night with a such good position (shinjuku) and such good service. Rooms are small but very clean and tidy. The metro station is 100meters far from the hotel. Personel is super kind. Suggested for a medium to long stay in tokyo!

This hotel was perfect for the gay scene, right next to Ni-chome 2 nightlife. The rooms are tiny but have everything you need. It's walkable to Shinjuku main station but Shinjuku San-chome is just across the road. Lots of nice places to eat locally and easy access to the rest of the city via the metro.

This is a tiny hotel in the heart of NiChome, the gay district of Japan. It's very small, which is normal for Japanese hotels. The price is great with it being so close to all the action of NiChome. Helpful tip...if you think you will have a guest for the night it's best to pay for 2, as no to... More

The room is average. The bathroom is too small but I still can handle it. But the hotel is quite central. From hotel itself, I can go anywhere including station. Very enjoying to staying here. Ah... the breakfast is okay. Just breads and some beverages (coffee, tea, juices, water). They are still using the manual keys therefore you must leave... More

the room is very clean, nice staff, there're free wifi, free water on 4th floor, and vending machine. it's quite close to Shinjuku station (10-15 minutes walk) but not easy to find. I think it's pretty well I like this hotel and want to come again.

This was the first hotel we went during our honeymoon in Japan. Quite surprised as the room is very small, we didn't look at the size (i.e 9 m^2). Anyway the staffs were very polite and nice and our room is lovely and clean. Although it is written that this hotel is only within 3 mins distance from station gate,... More

The hotel is located in Tokyo's gay district in Shinjuku. We were welcomed by extremely hospitable staff; however the room was nowhere near the usual Japanese standards we experienced. We only stayed a night because of fatigue, but the next day we called Hotels.com and they accommodated it a switch to another hotel at no cost. Why did we leave?... More

The second time staying here and everything remained just fine. The location is wonderful. Just on the exit of Shinjuku sanchome station About 15 mins from walk to Shinjuku Station. The room is small but it's extremely clean and cozy, but most of hotels in Tokyo in this budget range are small. Free breakfast provided but never had a chance... More

Neighborhood Profile

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.
