Kadoya Hotel
Ranked #16 of 84 Hotels / Ryokan in Shinjuku
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We traveled as a family of 4 (2 adults + 2 kids) to Tokyo in early June 2013. We stayed in this hotel as this is the nearest hotel to Shinjuku train & bus station that offers room for family. The room priced was reasonable. There are 3 comfortable beds, big enough toilet and excellent service. We just ask the receptionist on how to send a parcel to our friend in Kumagaya and they even offer to send the parcel for us instead of us going to the post office just a stone throw away from the hotel. There are many restaurants, convinient stores nearby so getting your meal is a breeze. They dont have wifi access, you need to use a wired connection, so we brought along portable wifi. This hotel is near the Tokyo Metropolitan building where you can catch a glimpse of tokyo at the lookout tower north or south. If you need to travel cheap in Japan and need a place where its near train station, then this is the hotel to stay.

This hotel is very good for following reasons;
1. very close to Shinjuku Station which is largest and biggest station in the world. You can go anywhere in Tokyo faster and easier.
2. window is opening. There are a lot of hotels in Shinjuku whose window is unopenable. It makes me mad. You can ventilate easier even after you smoke.
3. reasonable room charge. Many hotels in Shinjuku have higher room charge with lower quality.
4. silent. This hotel is smaller than others in Shinjuku. There is no one who talks loud and bother your rest.

We got Kadoya as alternative when we needed an additional room. We were booked at nearby Keio Plaza Hotel and it was just a block away and nearer the Shinjuku Station. The room was typically small as usual for Japanese hotels. Beds were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was small but the teenagers were fine with it. Downside was that there was no wifi in room only LAN access. We have not tried breakfast.

I stayed here because my preferred hotel was booked and I had to be at the train station the next day. Based on reviews I read and the price, I expected a decent hotel. The service was minimal, the lobby chairs are filthy (only wifi in the lobby) and my non smoking room absolutely stunk of cigarette smoke. It smelled more like an ash tray than fresh smoke. I'm fairly tolerant of poor condition, but this place just grossed me out. I would never stay here again. It was my least favorite and most expensive room I stayed in during a two week trip to Japan. The bedding was poor quality, but it was clean. Also, the bathroom was clean, but stunk.

We choose this hotel firstly due to its location to Shinjuku Station as we are doing side trips from Tokyo for 4 days and needed to deposit our lugguages first thing when we arrive in Tokyo. We emailed the hotel confirming our reservation when the dates were getting near and told them about our lugguages. They did not want to keep them as we did not stay the 1st night when we arrived and explained that their luggage storage is small.. After some haggling, they accepted our request. We were prepared to cancel the reservation if they did not allow. At the same time, we looked for alternatives and emailed Shinjuku Washington Hotel under general enquiries and they were more than willing to keep our lugguages without any conditions. So, do take note if you want to deposit your lugguages with Kadoya Hotel.

So we stayed 3 nights, twin room at Kadoya Hotel. We were worried as many reviews mentioned about the smoky lobby. However, the lobby was not smoky at all when we were there. No hint of cigarette smoke smell. Probably everyday we went out early and came back late. And there are a lot of toilet amenities, in sachets, free to take at the lobby. The staffs were friendly. There are 2 lifts which ran pretty fast.

Our twin room was quite huge for a japan hotel. We were able to lay out our 24" and 26" lugguages on the floor, with our day bags and shopping bags everywhere and we still had space to walk. We didn't have to put our lugguages up or tow them under the bed. Everything is very clean and the toilet also has its own full set of amenities too! There is a hot water kettle and an air purifier. We stayed on the 9th floor facing the main road but we could only hear the crows early in the morning.

As for the free WiFi, we can't comment as we had rented WiFi equipment ourselves. We did not try to connect to the hotel's WiFi either.

Location, needless to say, is AWESOME! Just 3 mins walk from Exit 6, Kei-O Line at Shinjuku West Central Exit. Don't expect escalators though.

There is a huge Lawson next to the hotel. And opposite, there is Doutor for breakfast and another Lawson but Lawson Natural, which sells a lot organic food. And a lot of eateries nearby.

Overall, Kadoya Hotel is an aged hotel, but everything is functioning (not sure about wifi?) and very clean. For the excellent location and the size of the room, the price is very reasonable. On a fairly budget trip, I would chose Kadoya Hotel again.

Very good overall. We stayed in the hotel for 4 days. The employees were very nice. The room was pretty roomy. One think I really liked was all the things were provided in the restroom. I didn't have to buy my own hair conditioner and hair shampoo. The location of the hotel was very convinient, too.
