Tokyu Stay Yotsuya
Ranked #34 of 84 Hotels / Ryokan in Shinjuku
Reviewed March 12, 2012

Stayed here for a week during my Tokyo Marathon trip. Mine was single room (breakfast included) that was ¥9,000 a night.

Reception staff was really friendly, and even helped me to check in 5 hours in advance. Exterior facade of the hotel looked a bit old, but the surroundings were clean. Room was equipped with kettle, washing machine/dryer, fridge and utensils. Only thing that surprised me was the wardrobe that spanned only 20cm (now, that's really tiny!), otherwise the room was clean and just the right size for me. The LAN wired connection enabled me to access on the Internet via my laptop. Stayed on the 10th floor, facing an office building (?), and hardly any noise could be heard from my room.

Location couldn't be better. It's a 5 minute walk to the JR and Tokyo Metro stations. At least 3 convenience stores, 1 drug store and a couple of small restaurants in the vicinity. The breakfast menu at Johnathan's was great, alongside friendly service too!

I can hardly find any fault with this fantastic, no-frills hotel. The next time I visit the Tokyo area, I am most likely to seek accommodation here again.

For a single in the ¥8,000-¥10,000 range in central Tokyo, you cannot come close to this hotel. Small, clean, modern rooms with great facilities (in-room microwave, tea kettle, fridge, washer/dryer, in all rooms, even a hot plate in some rooms). Rooms are tiny but efficient, and the location is incredibly good -- just 3 or 4 minutes to two JR and two subway lines. Walk 7 minutes to the next train station (Yotsuya 4-Chōme) and you can even find two small supermarkets and even more restaurants than Yotsuya itself can provide.

Free breakfast and Internet (but not Wi-Fi -- you need a cable). Helpful and cheerful staff, some with some English. Even a good deal on parking, though spaces are very limited and must be pre-booked.

Strangely the twins are not quite as fabulous a deal as the singles, but still to be recommended.

I never stay anywhere else when I go to Tokyo, since I usually stay for three nights and appreciate the amenities.

Room Tip: The rooms on the back side (away from Shinjuku Dori, the big boulevard) are quieter and have much be...

We have stayed here many times. An efficient and simple hotel. Quiet. Our family of 5 managed with 2 double beds and a fold out bed. A bit cramped but manageable. with small children this is better than separate rooms. The kids loved the breakfast downstairs in Jonathan's and ate their fill of pancakes or rice and natto.

Room Tip: Can fit 3 kids in with you....and the pay per view lasts all day with 1 payment (or did for us)

I have stayed at this location 6 times for at least a week at a time. Hotel is about a block from 2 subway stations and easy to find. I have found the staff to be friendly and go out of their way to be helpful - all of the front desk help can speak some English. The clean modern rooms have free internet - not wireless. Rooms are on the small size and are equipped with small refrigerator , microwave , one burner stove and washer/dryer combo. Small bed is a bit hard which is typical of hotels in Japan. There is a free basic breakfast at a restaurant 2 doors down the street. The location has quite a few restaurants and grocery stores in the area. The front facing rooms can be a bit noisy if your balcony door is open.

I stayed in the 10th Floor - it was 10,800 yen per night. The room came with kettle, washing machine and microwave as well as en suite bathroom. The single bed was as big as some doubles I've slept in and the room was more spacious than any hotels I've stayed in when in Tokyo before. Breakfast was included and was in the restaurant Jonathons downstairs. Great value for money. Great location. Quiet at night too... This is a chain and I stayed out in the airport one as well near Narita. If I go back to Tokyo I'd happily stay there.
