My husband and I used this as our base in Tokyo for 13 nights. We've stayed in Shinbashi and Shinagawa before but this is by far the most convenient location out of the three. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Shinjuku station which makes it convenient for the Narita Express and various subway lines but if you are using the Oedo Line or Yamanote Line (which we did the most) then Yoyogi Station is actually closer (and a lot easier to navigate) just exit using floor 1 and walk left down the hill. It's also a 5 minute walk from Yoyogi park which is a perfect haven if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku for a little while.
I've stayed in nicer hotels, but for value for money this hotel is unbelievable, I cannot rate it highly enough or stress just how perfect it is for a stay in Tokyo. We stayed on the 29th floor in one of the renovated rooms (floors 26-35). Our room was large by Tokyo standards, spotless, free bottled water was provided daily, bed was firm (as with all hotels in Japan), but it's really the view that makes it so special, we could see Mt Fuji most days and there is a handy little guide in the window to show you what you're looking at. If I had to criticise I'd say that there wasn't really enough storage space for all of our clothes and belongings but realistically I'm not sure how many other travellers are with them for as long as we were?
Tip: The bar at the hotel does a 500 yen per drink happy hour between 5pm and 8pm which we used once and included a good selection of drinks to choose from.
