J residence Shinjuku
Reviewed October 12, 2013

I stayed there for three nights in September, arriving on the night Typhoon Man-yi descended upon Japan. Initially I had difficulty locating the place as the city of Tokyo was eerily quiet, with barely a dozen pedestrian walking around. The transport system was in locked-down except for a few ‘brave’ taxi drivers who could barely understand what I was saying. After having located the place, in a small laneway next to the Higashi-Shinjuku Station way past midnight, I found a note dangling on the reception door telling me that my room was unlocked, and money will be collected the next day. How very meticulous and trusting. I was woken up the next morning by howling winds and splashing rain.
The room was small but self contained, with a microwave oven, and pots and pans, fridge, and some utensils included. The usual toiletries were provided. It was neat, quiet and cosy, with a separate toilet and shower unit. Internet reception is poor, so don’t rely on that if you want to connect to the outside world. Very good value for money, especially in a city like Tokyo. The whole building was very quiet considering it was fully occupied. Higashi-Shinjuku station was only a 2 minutes walk from the residence, and there are plenty of convenience stores nearby. Korea Town is within walking distance. If you are coming by taxi, tell the driver to drop you off at E-Hotel (well known). The residence is located at the end of the laneway between E-Hotel and Higashi-Shinjuku Station. All in all, very happy that I have found this place.

It's in Higashi-Shinjuku (east Shinjuku district) well serviced by subways and buses. Higashi-shinjuku stn( exit A) is only 2 min walk fr this quiet place. Actually its behind E hotel. Though its tiny they provide a stove,fridge and utensils.I chose this pace particularly for its cooking facilities as eating out is extremely expensive, Besides a coin laundry is available too.
To get to Shinjuku City and Stations ,buses No 74,75 n 86 get you there in minutes.-just Y200 per trip .If you prefer to proceed to Harajuku -Meiji shrine, and Shibuya to view the faithful Dog statue--Bus 86 takes u there as well. We went to Ikebukuko -the Sunshine City to and fro by 86 too. On foot to JR stn n Department stores takes about 15 min through the small alleys- crowded with hotels and small restaurants. JR trains -Yamanote line ,cost Y190 to Tokyo- Ginza/Imperial Palace or Hamamatsucho- to Haneda Aport .or even proceed to Odaiba- Rainbow Bridge n Mini Statue of Liberty. All in all we stayed at this cosy place for seven nights..Terence LIm

Stayed for two nights with a friend, very comfortable in a convenient location. You seriously can't beat this price for Tokyo, let alone Shinjuku. Close to the subway and all of the fun you dare to find in the neighbourhood. Highly recommended, would happily stay again.

Stayed for 10 nights. Nice, tidy apartments but small. There is no way I'd want to share with anyone. Book 2 apartments if you are traveling with someone. Price is cheaper if you book with them by phone directly. They only speak Japanese and Korean though. Good location, restaurants nearby. Coin laundry on the roof and the dryer is working great now after I cleaned out the filter! No housekeeping.

Room Tip: There is no choice of room.

This residence is in a real key position, cause it's very close to metro station, it's only 5 min. walk from the JR station (but it's not so easy to find cause it's in a small street) From here you are convenient to do everything not only in shinjuku but in all Tokyo (metro and JR connect all the town). Rooms are small for european standard, but are quite comfortable also considered that you are in the most noisy district of Tokyo. There's also a little kitchenette very useful if you want to economize. Don't expect to speak english.

i was staying in J residence hotel for 3days2night. why i choose to stay in this hotel because this hotel is convenience for all expecially if u are travelling with kids. The location for the hotel was really good, only few min to subway station. close to shinjuku city, kabukicho,i setan etc. The hotel staff always tried to help us even if they weren't always good in English..The room is bit confined but it's comfortable. J Residence offers air-conditioned 2-person apartments with free wired internet and a balcony. Compact and simply furnished, each apartment at J Residence Shinjuku comes with an LCD TV, a hairdryer and toiletries.The kitchen includes a microwave, an electric kettle and a fridge. A rice cooker is also provided.

A very good hotel that I would easily recommend. overall convenient and pleasant stay in Jresidence. i would stay in this hotel if i have trip again to tokyo.
