“Good location and great value”
Reviewed April 15, 2011

Location : 8 mins walk to Shinjuku Station which is one of the main interchange station. From here there are trains heading to Narita Airport, Shibuya (fashion shopping), Akihabara (electronics and electrical heaven), Tokyo, Harajuku (Meiji Shrine and more fashion shopping), Kanga (ski, snowboard and adventure gear but you have to ask locals how to walk there from the train station). Area surrounding Shinjuku Station has even more shopping malls, restaurants and clubs. There is a Shinto temple just walking distance to the hotel. 24 hours Lawson's convenience store is about 50m from hotel.

Hotel : Helpful staff. Free wifi with best reception at lower floors. Ice machine and beer/drink vending machine at level 2. Free laundry facilities.

Room: Spacious twin room with fridge, TV, tea making, husk/foam pillow combo and comfortable beds. Bathroom/toilet is a little small but that is common in Japan. Plus point is toilet bowl has automated rinsing function... quite a novelty. Great shower pressure and complete toiletries supply.

My friend and I had a very comfortable four nights stay here. The hotel staff were very professional and helpful. Our room (with two single beds) was spacious but the bathroom was quite small. There was a TV, phone and mini fridge in the room. Room service is available and you could get the laundry done for free in the building (same hotel) across the street. Internet was available however the computer is quite dated and slow.

Hotel is quite close to both JR and local train stations, also close to great shopping and there were many places to eat at. There's a convenient store just a minute away.

This was a great place to stay, and at a very reasonable price.

This hotel is truly value for money; located just 10 minutes away from Shinjuku Station (by taking the short cut through the temple) its super convenient. There are ample of shopping malls nearby (Isetan, IOIO etc) and convenience stalls as well. Kabukicho is just a mere 5 minutes walk (you can find loads of restaurants and stalls).
Do not worry even if you arrive late at midnight, the area is brightly lit and there are many people walking with you.

The hotel is very clean, although rooms and toilet might be a bit small. But its worth the price that you are paying. The breakfast is good, but should enjoy more variety. The staff are friendly and willing to help. It is located at a quiet street in Shinjuku so you can enjoy your rest...

I found this hotel by accident. What a find. The staff is extremely helpfull and the price was excellent. I think I paid about $75 a night booked online. It is in an excellent location in one of the most expensive cities on earth. The room is clean, small, but for one who really only sleeps here it is perfect. Across the road is the largest red light district in Tokyo, makes for fun evening walks. Easy access to the JR train station. May be the best value in Tokyo.

The time in the Hotel was nice. It is located about 15 minutes walking to JR Shinjuku station and 5-7 minutes to subway lines. All Shinjuku’s attractions are within walking distance.
The rooms are very simple, but clean comfortable. There are TV, shower with toilet, air condition, fridge , kettle, cups and complimentary green tea.
The beds are comfortable. Free WiFi was available in the reception area and LAN in the room. The staff is very helpful and friendly and most speak enough english.

3 min walk from the E1 exit of the underground (either 13 min walk from Shinjuku JR stn of 5 min walk from Shinjuku Sachome metro stn). lawsons just 1 min walk away.

good clean rooms, free use of washing machines(although it take 3.5 hrs to wash n dry)
Complimentary green tea in room.

Room size just enough to open 2 regular sized luggages.Good small and functional sized bathroom. Not recommended for large sized people.

I got about 50% off on pyotravel.com, so that makes it good value for money. Not otherwise

My one complaint is that they switch on the central heating as of 01 november and it was so stuffy. The weather outside was more than 19 deg C. Only solution they offered was to open the windows. Good thing we were on the 10th floor, otherwise the traffic noise would have kept us awake
