Hotel is rather small, two star establishment, but it really is great value for money. It is located some 5 minutes (by walking) from Shin-Okubo station, which is on Yamanote-line, and gives easy access to many places in Tokyo. Also Shinjuku-area is only 15 minutes away by walking.
Hotel is very clean, rooms are perhaps small on western standards, but rathes spacious on japanese standards. Wi-fi works, there is communal PC downstairs, staff is friendly and helpful.
Just around the corner there are many good korean (ant other) restaurants, little shops etc.

A few minute walk from JR Shin-Okubo train station, it is so easy to access to anywhere (e.g. shinjuku, shibya, harajuku). It is at the centre of "Korean Town". The hotel is a mix of Hotel (1st floor) and Hostel (ground floor). It is VERY clean, VERY confortable and safe. The receiptionists are very accomodating and helpful. It is convenient for family with kids (even babies) as well as single traveller.

This may not be a traditional Japanese hotel (if that's what you looking for) but it is (japanese) cumtomary to take your shoes off before entering the hotel.

Room is cleaned everyday and the room with private toilet/bathroom has windows and small cupboard. The toilet/bathroom is divided into 3 cubicals i.e. shower, toilet and lavatory (just sink and mirror to freshen up).

Private Room is equiped with fridge, TV and air conditioner (summer) / heater (winter) and dressing table. Surprisingly, the private room is (very) spacious.

This is a pretty basic hotel/hostel (no restaurant, no swimming pool and no fitness centre) but you come to Japan to experience to culture, its food and people, so what the point to stay in your hotel whereas you can enjoy all that out there.

The hotel/hostel is surounded by various karoean and japanese restaurants. Even those fast food restaurant such as MacDonalds is just next to the JR Shin-Okubo Station. Convenient stores and sundry shops are also availanle and easily accessed.

Room Tip: Private rooms on the 1st floors have private bathroom/toilets. Unless you prefer to share with the r...

Great experience for our 9 days stay in Tokyo, Japan. Near to the Shin-okubo station and to other tourist district in Tokyo. Great hospitality from the staff. Connection to internet is great with the free wifi in room. A definite choice if we're back in Tokyo!

Room Tip: If you dont mind sharing the bathroom, the room downstairs with cheaper rate is available.

1. The price for a room of two single bed(like 10000JPY from 3PM to 10AM) is not cheap around that area(the area near the Korean Town near Shin Okubo Subway station);
2. The room is very clean;
3. The service is good, the people their are very friendly;
3. If you choose to live on the first floor, be prepared to get a set of ear plugs, kind of noisy, and I can hear cats crying at night, even with all the windows closed, scary...
4. Self served Laundry available, 100JPY;

Room Tip: Do not ever choose a room on the first floor.

Thank you for your recent stay at Shin-Okubo International Hotel.
Our hotel has just opened in this summer.
Since it had become almost at full occupancy and without any reservations from you in advance,we could only prepare a spare room in that day with standard price at front.
You can use our online reservation service to get the special rate.
As for the noisy of cat, we will take prompt measures for better accommodation environment.
Thank you and we are waiting for your next visit.
