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.
