I booked this hotel after reading the good reviews on TripAdvisor, but after staying there I don't have much to say except for its proximity to Shinjuku station. Even so, it was incredibly difficult to find and we had to haul our luggage up and down a lot of stairs. Many of the locals did not know where it was either.
Compared to hotels in Hiratsuka and Yokohama, the room is tiny. It would have been alright except the room is not as clean as other Japanese hotels. There was dust in the shelves, some orange stains in the bathroom and weird crusty brown stuff in the water boiler. The water boiler itself turned out to be missing the stand underneath to boil the water. But, the lack of cleanliness made it rather uncomfortable to stay in.
There is a small supermarket and an underground shopping mall underneath. The closest convenience store is a 7-Eleven, but it also rather small.
I heard from my colleagues that the Hyatt in Shinjuku is a much better hotel at the same price. I will try staying there next time.
