Barely room to swing a cat, but since we weren't planning to stay in our rooms that didn't matter! Rooms were efficient and clean and functional and at a reasonable rate. The location is just fantastic - close to restaurants and shops and most importantly the railway stations are a short walk away. We found the subways confusing at first and had difficulty finding the hotel in the pouring rain - access is either via the street (24 hrs) or through the subway and escalators and shops (from around 10.00 am to 11.00 pm). Internet access is available in the lobby or in the rooms on request and payment, but we were unable to get room access as it had all been used up. Hence it gets a bit crowded in the lobby at times with everyone logging on! Reception staff might need a refresher on their own services - one sent me out a couple of streets away to an ATM when there was one in the building, and one didn't seem to know about the computer and printer services available to guests only 3 metres away from him.
Rooms were very hot - I was told that because of the cold weather the air conditioning was set at a fixed and warm 23c and could not be changed in the rooms - this made for very uncomfortable sleeping at night although they did provide me with a fan on request which made it a bit easier.
Nevertheless would stay there again as Shinjuku is such a great location to stay.
