We booked this hotel based on the enthusiastic reviews. Well, as much as the place is fine, it doesn't deserve all the kudos we read...
Room was "large" enough (by Tokyo standards), and quiet (we had required a quiet room at booking and that was addressed).
TV has only Japanese channels.
Location is perfect, over Subway station, and within walking distance to Kabukicho and Shinjuku.
The bad part is communications:
1) no wireless internet at all. That means that if you use a iDevice, you are incommunicado for all your stay.
Only 2 slow and busy PCs in public use in the lobby.
2) the local phone calls from the rooms are outrageously charged. Use public phones instead.
Good base to spend a sightseeing / shopping week end in Tokyo.
For longer stay and if communications are needed, might not be the best choice.
