The price is right and the location can't be beat. The bed was very comfortable in our room, but the bathroom was tiny and filthy. The shower curtain was moldy and had pubic hairs stuck to it.
Although the bed was nice the double room did not allow for any movement . The half foot space between the bed and bathroom barely allowed for the door to be opened. Still, I guess for 11,000 yen for 2 people it can't be beat a a place to crash. But since the area borders on tons of love hotels that have 3 times the space with TONS of amenities, why bother?

- Price was fairly lower than anything else in the area.
- Hotel is brand new and spotless
- Location is great (and near nightlife spots) right next to subway.

- Only downturn is rooms that, while cozy, are extremely small.

Overall a great clean & cozy alternative to explore Tokyo.

Was suppose to stay at Citadine Shinjuku but it was full for the period. I read many good reviews for this hotel here and in other media source so take the chance to book it. Maybe that set my expectations to high and turn out to be my refret.

The location is absolutely convenient as metro station is practically right next to the Hotel Entrance, Tully's at the ground floor with special meal for Hotel Guests are certainly a plus, however, other than these the overall stay in E-Hotel is not absolutely pleasent. I've expected very very small room for Tokyo downtown accomodation, but this one is really tiny while the design of the layout is not as smart as other tiny hotels i've stayed in Tokyo. Worse, while usually no matter how small the room will be JP hotels usually are clean and neatly maintained (maybe only I was super lucky in the past?). The hotel room ventilation is not very good, the room is not smelly very good while the toilet which is next to your bed are smelling bad even before anyone use it, the bath tube and the shower curtain is not clean and overall the room looks dingy? not sure if that's the right word for the case but overall it is not comfortable for me at all...

The reception area, however, is very bright, modern and clean. Staff are helpful and friendly as well. That makes me even feel more sad when left the public area and returned to the room...

I don't think will stay for the next time!

Room Tip: I'm not sure...i found other guests at the lobby area looks consent or maybe i guess it wrong? a...

I visited Tokyo this year for New Years with friends, so we wanted to stay somewhere reasonably priced and in the downtown core. There's no breakfast, but there is a Tully's cafe on the first floor with decent coffee and sandwiches. The hotel is located right next to the Higashi-Shinjuku station, and you can easily walk to Shinjuku San-Chome, where there are lots of great restaurants, pubs, and Kabuki-cho for nightlife and clubs. It is also a five-minute walk from Korea Town. The rooms are small, but clean - we spent very little time at the hotel, so it was great for a good night's sleep and hot shower. The staff were really nice, and spoke English. The one thing to consider is that there is a huge difference between a regular twin room and an eco-twin. The eco-twin room technically has two beds, but they are stuck together and cannot be separated. The regular twin is much bigger and the beds are on completely different sides of the room. I'd recommend this place for people who aren't planning to spend much time in their room, and want to be right downtown.

Great location as it is just beside the Higashi Shinjuku station, as in right above it. Not liked many of the hotels in Shinjuku area which advertised themselves as strategically located near metro exit but in actual fact, need to walk 10 mins from the actual metro station. Definitely a plus after a long day of shopping or sight seeing.

BUT, and that is a big but, while it is in great location, it is probably also near some hospital which means you get sirens blasting down the streets liked every 15 mins. Yeah, we timed and counted. And no it does not stop after mid night. And no, the windows, though adequately sealed, can't shut off the sound of the sirens and loud hailer. This means you still get a averagely loud "announcement" of ambulance approaching every 15 mins till wee hours (the last i counted was 2 plus in the morning). It was a nightmare to fall asleep. And this is coming from us who stay near a metro in our home country. But nothing ear plugs can't do to reduce the noise.

Lastly, E hotel has really tiny hotel rooms and bathroom. Solo traveller would be fine with it. But for couples or families, I would not really recommend. And this is coming from two 5 ft 2 and 5ft 5 Asian couple.

So for deep sleeper, average size solo traveller who dig convenience to the metro E hotel is not a bad choice. Plus it is fairly new. Service is adequate and polite.

Room Tip: Just bring your ear plugs

This hotel is very average. It's new, clean and it's well located but this is where it all ends. Rooms are small, even for Japanese standards. The bathroom was so tiny the toilet bowl didn't fit well and you couldn't sit properly, and we are not big people. No breakfast and more expensive than Sun Members also in Shinjuku and the room was very hot. We tried to open the window but it was very noisy outside so either way we couldn't win! The good thing about it is that there were plenty of places to eat around it, but it's Shinjuku so I don't think that's a major bonus. Staff were pleasant, and they consistently are in Japan so that's not a reason to choose this hotel over another. There are better places to spend your nights in Tokyo, I wouldn't choose this one. (Feb 2010).
