Stayed here for my first four nights of a month long trip to Japan. Great place to acclimatise.
I won't repeat previous comments too much but the location is excellent. Only a 5 minute walk from the east exit of shinjuku station and fairly easy to find. Rooms are functional, very clean, up to date and compact as you expect in Tokyo. Reception very good with excellent English - my Japanese is not great. Breakfast is ok, although I ate breakfast out of the hotel after the second day as the choice is not great. A pity there is no wifi in the rooms although there are LAN cables, not great if you only have an iPad with you. So I bought a one month b-mobile data only sim card for a month for about 3400¥ from bic camera near shinjuku station. Best option to avoid extortionate roaming charges, but make sure your phone/iPad is unlocked.
Back to the hotel and vicinity. There's a lawsons convenience store right underneath open 24/7. Handy. There's lots around in shinjuku which is a cool place to stay. Geared more towards Japanese socializing unlike rappongi which is a bit more western and sordid (but fun nonetheless, although not to my taste).
Despite location, which is busy 24 hours a day, rooms are very quiet. Beds are good. Linen changed every day and great functional bathroom.
Overall I'd stay here again. Excellent value for money, great service and super location.
