Overall, Ace Inn was a decent but very quiet hotel. They were quite strict and rigid in their rule setting which kind of killed the mood. I found a lot of older people would stay at this kind of hotel and you could tell by the atmosphere in the top floor common room. It was a really big common area with a massive TV but felt empty and had a lack of atmosphere about the place. Had a few good nights out with the fellow travellers i met at Ace Inn but would only recommend it for a few nights stay at most but it all depends on what you are looking for. The laundry facilities were good as there was always washers and dryers spare and the showers (if you stayed in the dorm room) were located on the bottom floor. This proved to be a bit annoying as you had to travel down in a lift and then down more stairs to have a shower and then back up again to your dorm. The 'capsules' were different to all other capsules i stayed in throughout my time in Japan as they were more like coffins than capsules. They were fairly spacious but felt very much like lying in a coffin with only a tiny reading light at the end where your head lays. There was no free breakfast offered at this hotel which is strange as i had stayed at far cheaper places where a breakfast was provided. The nightly rate was about 2500 Yen (18/19 pounds at the time) which is pretty expensive for what you get considering you stiff have to pay for a wifi code and to do your own washing and drying via the coin machines AND you had to pay for the showers (which was 100 yen for 10 minutes i think). The location was decent but its not as close to Shinjuku as the name suggests as its a 20 minute walk in a straight line which isn't too bad but a bit annoying when walking back late at night. The closest station is Akebonobashi which is a subway line that you can use to get to shinjuku station pretty quickly if you do not want to walk.
