“Great location”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Great location in Kabukicho.
We booked a room on high floor, with town view.
Rooms are spacious. Wifi in rooms and hotel.
Bathroom very clean.
Staff gentle and very good service.
Good breakfast (western and Japanese food).

The first task in finding a hotel in Tokyo, is to determine what area you want to stay in. Having been to Tokyo before, I knew I wanted to stay in the Shinjuku area. There are many hotels in this area as it is one of the entertainment zones in Tokyo. We chose the Best Western Shinjuku Astina for its convenience, price and location. The rooms are small, but that is common in Tokyo, clean, and modern. For myself the room was ample, with desk, and love seat. My two friend's room, same size as mine was snug but acceptable. They offer free breakfast and free wifi, just what I was looking for. The hotel is located in the Kabukicho area of Shinjuku and is on the second floor. Easy escalator or elevator will bring you to the lobby. A Lawsons convenience store is on the first floor. The Kabukicho area is an entertainment zone with many bars, restaurants and girly bars, but I found the area completely safe and not intimidating at all. The hotel is a short walk from the JR Shinjuku train station. Come out the East exit and walk along the Shinjuku dori, cross over to the Yasukuni dori and left onto Kabukicho (Shinjuku ward office street). there is a Mr. Donut on the corner. Maybe 10 minute walk. There are very little amenities, no pool, fitness room, but computers in the lobby and a restaurant and laundry room. Plenty free maps and brochures in the lobby. Morning staff good English, afternoon staff, not as good, but understandable. The hotel was always well maintained and clean. Breakfast was heavy on Asian items, but eggs, some meat (sausage or bacon) and cereals and breads always offered. Large selections of teas, coffee and juices. It is certainly enough to get you started, just do not look for a banquet.

Room Tip: Not much to offer here, but I always ask for a high floor just for a view of any city I visit.

We were booked into a hotel in Ginza, but at the last minute decided to change as we felt the Best Western Astina was a better location, we made the right choice!
We loved the liveliness of Shinjuku, the bright neon lights, the busy streets and the great choices for eating out.
The hotel is located right near the Golden Gai,, although we did not go to a bar there, we ventured through for a wander and it was quite entertaining.
The hotel itself is really clean and comfortable, although I can't say I loved the Japanese pillows, but you get this at any hotel.
The breakfast buffet is a bit odd, but it saved us from going hungry.
The hotel is within walking distance of Shinjuku station and this makes it's perfect for getting around all of Tokyo.
If I were to return to Tokyo, I would definitely consider staying here again and I recommend it to fellow travellers who enjoy being in the middle of the action!

Room Tip: We chose a twin room because it was a bit bigger than having a double, it meant sleeping in separate...

Convenient, clean and well appointed. I've stayed at this hotel many times over the past five years and my partner and I highly recommend it to all Gaijin. Even took out loyalty membership based on my experiences.

Very good, and will refer this hotel to my friends--the room is very clean, and hotel gives guest a choice to clean the room once every two days, the 500 yen credit can be used in the hotel.Free wifi, breakfast is good.

Small room which is normal by Tokyo standard but very clean. 5-10minute walk from Shinjuku station. Although in midst of the very busy kabukicho, room is sufficiently sound proofed for a good night sleep. Breakfast nothing to shout about.
