Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. 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. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

This was our first hotel on a two week trip, and it was quite good. Room was quite modern and clean. Staff was friendly and location convenient, since it's a walking distance to the JR station/restaurants/nightlife. There was some noise from the street traveling up to our room

Let’s start with the positive: Location is great, you can walk to the main shopping street within a few minutes and have the famous ‘golden gai’ Bars right in front of the hotel. The views from rooms is awesome!! Unfortunately that’s about it for the positives. We booked a

I’ve been traveling around Japan with family (spouse and three single adult children the past weeks). So far, I’ve been most impressed by Shinjuku Granbell’s standard double loft style room. It is the most spacious of the rooms we’ve had, and instead of the typical matchbox

Should I pre book our Limousine bus passes before we get to Japan?
Per azdu0 the closest JR station is Higashi-Shinjuku (on the Toei-Oedo Line) first stop from Shinjuku Central (you will need to change trains). The main line to remember in Tokyo is Yamanote Line which starts in Tokyo Central and circles back there (this will get to Shinjuku Central). If you choose to walk from Shinjuku Central head to the East exit and you will see a major street crosswalk over to the right, head diagonally across the crosswalk and veer right down this main street. head up the street looking for Apple Shinjuku (on RHS), there is a coffee shop on the next LHS street corner, hang a left around the coffee shop (coffee and snacks are good here) and walk, the street will veer left, keep going, look for a street (on the left) that is roughly at 45 degrees to the one you are walking down and take this one to Granbell (on right) - there is an obscure back entrance where cars are parked (or else you will need to turn right to get to the main entrance. Alternatively take a taxi from Shinjuku - remember most taxi doors open automatically and close automatically.

The wifi is working, it’s just not a strong signal. We mentioned this to the front desk and they provided us with something to boost the reception. The signal was ok but still not great after that. Sorry I’m not a techie.

"mind the location of the room, you might need to keep the curtain shut the whole time."
"If size matters, book the twin bedroom,"
"Always check the square foot in the room, then the price, to make sure you will be comfortable. Some Japanese rooms are Tiny!"
"Rooms are a little small, so if you want something a little bigger might be no harm to upgrade."
"check out the different room catagories carefully when booking on line"
