This is the 2nd hotel that we have stayed in Tokyo (after staying in a hotel in Shiodome). The atmosphere is completely different as Shiodome is more business-like and fairly quiet at night while Shinjuku is full of neon lights and life goes on even after 3am. As I have done a fair amount of research on the website, I knew very well the way leading from the Shinjuku Sanchome station to the hotel. The location is quite good and is close to the shopping area and there are many restaurants closed by. The hotel looks fairly new and the room is nice and just big enough to fit my family of 4. Bathroom is considered big (Japanese standard) as it includes a bathtub and shower area. The service at the front desk is ok but I would not consider it to be very friendly or too welcoming - I stayed from 21 Dec to 24 Dec and left for a 1-night trip to Hakone before checking into the hotel again on the 25th. The staff that served me the first time are professional but they are not very friendly. The male staff that served me the 2nd time speaks perfect english but he seems a bit cold (and he only gave me 1 access card as oppose to 3 cards given to me at the first check-in). In fact, it was not mentioned that I could utilize the breakfast voucher at the convenience store on the ground floor (at a value of JPY500) if I chose not to have breakfast. The best part of the stay has to be the breakfast as my boys enjoyed the meal every morning (even though food doesn't change much) and I must mention the welcoming waitresses at the cafe. Their bright smiles really brighten our day!
I am not sure if I will stay in the hotel again considering that there are other good hotels in the area - sunroute shinjuku, century southern tower, Keio plaza hotel. The rates of these hotels could be attractive at times.
