The hotel is pretty clean and well maintained. It's located quite well and not far from the Shinjuku main station with lead to many of the Tokyo metro and trains lines. The staff speaks a very good english and is amazingly helpful with the customers. The room itself is not that big but fits pretty well the Japanese standards. It... More

The hotel is located in Shinjuku but you need to walk about 15mins from the station to the hotel and bit far from the center of the Shinjuku.. If u are going back to Narita airport on your last day, please cater yourself for at least 30mins with your luggage to walk there and 1.5hrs from Shinjuku station to the... More

I liked my stay at this hotel. Location is great, short walk from Shinjuku station. Room was nice, nice shower and bathroom, and the price was good compared to similar alternatives. Didn't have breakfast at the hotel. Many places are nearby for going out.

Room small, basically need to climb over bed to move around. We were given smoking room initially but been changed to non smoking when we complained. Never expect smoking allowed in hotel rooms. Location good. Disappointing in entrance carpet, looked wet and daggy. Breakfast good.

We stayed first time at this hotel and found we made the right choice. The price for three of us staying in one room was reasonable. The buffet breakfast was appropriate in terms of mixture of salad, bread and Japanese rice & congee. The staff at front desk and cafe restaurant were nice. We were particularly pleased with the housekeeping... More

The hotel was clean and everyone was very accommodating. Many if not most employees spoke English which was very helpful. Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is just a 10-13 minute walk away. Beautiful. Subway is very close and of course you can always call Uber - always available. We didn't as we were able to get mostly everywhere by train or... More

Small rooms but very clean and quiet. Close to Shinjuku and Golden Gai district and despite what some have been writing in the reviews, it's actually very close to the Metro - at least Shinjuku-Sanchome station which hosts two subway lines. The bigger Shinjuku station is a short walk away as well. We lived in the hotel building and not... More

The hotel is in a good location. Subway stop Shinjuku Sanchome is 5 minute walk away. The hotel owns a bakery located right next door that is absolutely wonderful and inexpensive where you can grab breakfast, lunch and/or a snack for later. They package/seal to go items in cellophane packages. The area is known for it's nightlife and the bars... More

Just checked out of this hell hole. There is really nothing positive about this hotel except for the location if you do not mind a 10 min walk to the subway. First of all, the semi double room is extremely small and the cleanliness is sub standard. The carpet was stained and the bedsheets and towels were yellowish. The miniature... More

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.
