Shinjuku Washington Hotel Main
Ranked #21 of 83 Hotels / Ryokan in Shinjuku
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Slept here for 4 nights of a one week tour. we had a reservation for a twin bed room but the tour operator booked a double. However, in a few minutes the receptionists solved the problem and we had a very nice twin bed room at the 12th floor, with a very good view. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows...well, a bit noisy, but we found the standard ones! The bathroom is very small but it has all we needed. Very good location and nice staff. It is a huge hotel, with a lot of rooms and restaurants. Be carefull not to get lost!

Cute modular bathrooms. Quite state of the art given Japan's space constraints.

Conveniently located amongst amenities. Request for a higher floor! Close to the shinjuku station which is a good plus. don't bring a large suitcase to japan! I've learned it the hard way.

Room Tip: Higher floor rooms!

Small room, old furniture, smoky smell. If you don't mind, it is still clean room for you to stay.. the location is very central not far away from the main station, don't go there direct from airport by train. It will be too much for taking your luggage travel around. The airport shuttle stop in front of the hotel.

The best part about this hotel is the location (only a 10 minute walk from Shinjuku station and 15 minutes from the heart of Kabukicho). After catching a shuttle bus straight from the airport to the front door of the hotel (At only 300 yen I highly recommend this after a long flight from the GC), we were greeted with fantastic service and a compact but cosy room. It has all of the basic necessities such as kettle, television and a comfortable bed, as well as a clean and tidy bathroom. We booked this hotel more than 45 days in advance and were given a massive 40% discount on the overall price. As a first time traveller to Japan, the English speaking staff were extremely friendly and helpful. There is also free wifi, and english computers that you can rent. There is a Family Mart on level 1 (Lobby is on level 3) which have fantastic cheap meals if you are travelling Japan on a budget like we were (and also great for hangover feeds after a massive night in Kabukicho!) Make sure you walk down towards Shinjuku Gyoen Central Park (gorgeous!) and gawk at the massive Government Buildings. There are no luxury facilities like pools or gyms, but that's not what I was in Japan for so I didn't care at all. We stayed in the main building (not the annex) so I am unsure what the annex rooms are like. The best part of all was that on our last night we were upgraded to a Premium Suite at no extra cost! I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough for budget travellers and will definitely be staying here again on my next trip.

this hotel's best feature is its accessibility. there was an airport shuttle that took us and our luggages from the airport. the travelex office is a few minutes walk. the two-day unlimited metro card that came with the roundtrip airport-hotel ticket was used easily as the metro station was a few minutes walk also. there were many places to eat, including the takashimaya department store.our mount fuji trip started with a pickup from our hotel.our tokyo tour included both pick-up and drop-off. the room was tiny but we were on a non-smoking floor and there were two mirrors that a shortsighted person could use. overall and because we knew what to expect, thanks to trip advisor, we really enjoyed our stay in this hotel.

Room Tip: be sure to write reservation desk if you need a non-smoking room. i read on trip advisor that a coup...

Located not far from Shinjuku JR Line and the most convenient is the airport bus stop right in front of the hotel. Lobby situated at 3rd floor and 2nd floor consists of a family mart convenient store. Althought the rooms are small but is clean and staffs are helpful. I also signup for a Mt.Fuji+hakone excursion package with an travel agency located at the lobby. Pickup from hotel and back so no hassle. Whoever like gambling, there is a pachinko store beside the hotel too.
Is a 10mins walk from hotel to Shinjuku JR station connection to Oedo line too, u have an option to walk outdoor or underground if it's rain. And 5mins walk to Tocho-mae Station, just walk pass tokyo metropolitan buildings (no underground walkway).
As i have told u i like walking, so i can reach kabukicho (often called "sleepless town"-entertainment & red district area) in roughly 15-20mins.
The room (double room) itself has a mini fridge, tv, electric kettle, no safe box, iron upon request at the lobby, yukata & all toiletries needs. What i need to learn is how to use bidet (electronic toilet bowl)..haha.

Decent location, a less than ten minute walk to the Shinjuku station. The rooms are small but clean. The bathrooms are pre-made, tiny but functional and clean. There is no closet space, but this is Tokyo. And there are good restaurants and a Family Mart downstairs. The only thing cheaper would be a capsule hotel. I'd stay here again if I wanted to save money.

The bean pillow is too thick, but thankfully they also include a regular pillow.

They provide a nice pajama shirt.

Room temperature can't be controlled and the window doesn't open.

Room Tip: Be sure to request non-smoking if you care for that. Otherwise there is a smell.
