This is the first hotel I stayed in Japan, so I really had no idea how small hotels in Tokyo are. And they are! But the most important thing is that the room is cool (in the winter time, it's important to stay warm but not in a stuffy room) and clean. There's a dressing desk next to the closet, with a hairdryer, electric sockets, and a small bathroom. The bathroom has a medium bathtub, where you can half-lay in it. The shower and sink has hot and cold taps, the toilet seat has a warmer and digital buttons. We booked a room for three people, and we got three very convenient beds. There's TV inside the room, but only airing Japanese speaking shows :D
The service is great. We were told to check in at 2 PM, but they were willing to store our luggage if we got there early. In fact, when we got there at 1 PM, they had a room available and we could check in! How nice of the staff, right?! Of course, like any other hotels in Japan (as I read on the other reviews), we had to submit each person's passport in order to get the key card to our room. But, when we checked out at 10AM the next morning, they would still store our luggage so we could travel without hassle. So nice.
Now, about the location. It's really close to the Shinjuku Station, but you have to make sure you got out on the West Exit. Walked down the street a little bit, and you would be able to see the hotel across the street. However, if you walked on the street, you might just missed the hotel, because the first floor is actually a fast food restaurant. You need to go inside, take an escalator or elevator to the hotel's reception area. For me and my friends, this is a great value for money hotel. Unfortunately, we only stayed here for one night, so not really able to experience the whole service.
