As noted, rooms are small but clean-Although bathroom was more about efficiency than style, the shower water pressure and temp. were excellent. My travel pillow was used at night as the hotel pillow was like a bulky foam rock. The beds were extra firm but surprisingly excellent for sleep quality. Hotel staff was neutral- answered questions but not much interaction beyond required greetings. You will get a nice walk going to shinjuku. Walk a route staying to the north of the park when going to and from the hotel to avoid the many homeless living under the overpasses. You will also pass a 24 hour grocery store that is quite convenient. The beer garden at the nearby Hilton was nothing more than plastic tables and chairs on the rooftop and beer was expensive-skip it unless paying $30.00 per person for all the beer you can drink meets your needs for value.
There was no cozy place to hang out in the hotel lobby...to play cards or have a beer-as the lobby is quite sterile and the rooms are too small.
We went to McDonalds for coffee pre-breakfast every morning as the hotel coffee cups were very dainty...The hotel breakfast lost appeal after 3 mornings and egg mc muffins at McDonalds next door tasted glorious for our 4th morning. The McDonalds is clean with a local mix and the workers hustle and are really friendly so it's like you're not even in McDonalds.
We chose this hotel as we were traveling with a budget conscious couple and although no regrets as we had a fantastic time, I would pony up some cash for a bit of additional aesthetics and to be closer to trains for the next visit. Can't beat the price.
