Citadines Shinjuku Tokyo
Ranked #3 of 84 Hotels / Ryokan in Shinjuku
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 1, 2010

We stayed there from Mar17 to Mar22. What you see from the pictures is exactly what you get, even if it looks too good to be true (it really is!!).

There are essentially 2 subway stations near the apartment, but the nearest one is Shinjuku Gyoenmae station. It's a 5 min brisk walk to the station, and along the way you pass by a couple of nice eateries and convenience shops.

To get to the Shinjuku JR station (the really huge station with both the JR trains as well as subway), I would advise taking the bus from the bus stop almost right outside the apartment. It's about 4 bus stops, and costs just JPY200 per adult and JPY100 per child. However, if you are feeling that you need a bit of exercise, it's a 20min walk....

Alternatively, you can also take the subway from the Shinjuku Gyoenmae station if you feel like having a short walk.

There is no lack of food in the area, and for those who like to have late night suppers, there are 2 food joints that operate 24 hours. Just turn left as you exit the apartment and walk straight. One is across the road (can't remember the name as it's Japanese), while the other is called Yoshinoya (which is on your side of the road. just keep walking straight).

In short, really loved the place. If I come back to Tokyo again, I would have no qualms coming back here to stay.

I used the reviews on TripAdvisor as a guide and am incredibly glad I did! I booked through Expedia and got a WONDERFUL deal on this hotel. Best bang for your buck! The rooms are quite spacious, even by American standards, and very clean; the staff is incredibly helpful; there is even a small kitchen in the hotel room!

Only major downfalls are the lack of free internet (actually, no wireless internet was available) and the proximity to the train station isn't the greatest since it's on the farther side of Shinjuku (about a 10-15 minute walk vs. 5 minutes at 2 other hotels I stayed at in Tokyo).

Overall, a great experience. I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed three nights in Tokyo and had booked into Citadines for all three. Very happy with this decision.
Room was compact yet spacious - very good use of space with a little lounge area separate from the very comfy bed. The blinds were the best light block ones I have ever encountered. Thought it was still the middle of the night at 8am.
The hotel was a little further removed from the action but good restaurants were only 5 - 10 minutes tops away.
This was good because the weather was extremely cold. Hotel was nice and warm and close to 3 subway lines and shinjuku station so easy to get around Tokyo.

Location wise the hotel is great. Located at Shinjuku and it is near metro station. Convenience store such as lawson and 7eleven is near too. From Narita, take a airport limousine bus to shinjuku. Then take a cab to the hotel. Remember to print out the map in japanese because most cab driver only understand japanese. We reach the hotel early, check in start at 2pm. They allows us to keep our luggage there.

The room is modern & quite small plus we add extra single bed. Clean room attached with kitchenette. Room is serviced regularly. LCD tv with wide variety of english channel. Free internet available, i recommend to bring own ethernet plug.

I have a pleasant stay at Citadines Shinjuku, I really look foward for other Citadines location

Knowing absolutely nothing about Tokyo before our trip, we took a chance on Citadines. With this little gem in the heart of Shinjuku did not disappoint. It was convenient, clean, with a very helpful staff (who spoke great English, which was awesome for first time westerners visiting Japan). We stayed in the studio double, and it was perfect for two people who didn't plan to spend a load of time in the "apartment" and didn't want to spend a lot of $$. The room was replete with HDTV, satellite receiver, full kitchenette, and a gym (which we didn't take advantage of). If you're looking for a modern, low cost and generally awesome place to stay while in Tokyo, we highly recommend you consider Citadines. They also just opened a location in Kyoto if that's your destination.

i stayed at Citadines last November 27-30, 2009. It was great, the place was spanking new, clean and spacious. Bit of a walk (leisurely 10 minute walk) to the shinjuku goyen mae station and to Isetann and Takashimaya Times Square but none the less interesting, the crisp autumn air is refreshing especailly for a person who hails from a tropical country. Whatever exit you take from the gyoen mae station , remember when you come out of the subway station just turn either left or right on the very corner of the block where the subway exit is stationed, your back is the gyoen mae garden , you DO NOT NEED TO CROSS any big road/street to get to Citadines, walk about three small blocks, with small alleyways. ( 1 car width alley ) until you reach a big busy street/avenue, and that is where Citadines is located., once you hit the big street, take a right and walk straight ahead for about 2 minutes you will see the hotel. Staff speaks English and very accomodating, they have preprinted maps that show what is located where. A tip when you run out of yen and want to convert your dollars better do it at a local bank, they give better rates unless you have a Citibank Account and have with you your Citibank value client card then Citibank would give you a better rate. And by the way, to those who have big luggages, do take the other gyoen mae exit because it has a lift unlike the one recommended by the Citadines site, yes , logistically it is nearer but my oh my ......two flights of stairs going up to the street level is quite a challenge, gravity sure make itself felt. Enjoy your stay at Citadines, i loved it, it is quiet but has many small eateries in the neighborhood, at first i was apprenhensive because it is near the kabuchiko district because we are 2 single ladies travelling but it was not that near the hotel, so we feel safe even if we get back late at night. If I get a chance to visit Tokyo, i would stay here again.

Excellent hotel (or "aparthotel") for anyone looking for decent quality, reasonably priced accomodation. The room itself was clean, new and comfortable. Including a mini kitchen allows for in room breakfast and savings and the little annex just adds to the space.

We were most impressed by the staff - on arrival after asking if they knew how we might be able to book tickets to the sumo wrestling, the woman at reception then researched it on the internet, walked my boyfriend to the shop, bought the tickets in Japanese, asked questions for us, printed out step by step details in English about transport and where in the stadium our seats were. I.e. she went far above and beyond.

In relation to the construction, it was in our room barely audible - the clock ticking was louder.

All in all, an excellent hotel in good location for a great price.
