I have been to Tokyo many times and this hotel was the last one I stayed before I decided for airbnb. If you are the first timer to Tokyo, and you wouldn't want to get confused, this is the hotel for you. Great location and good price ! It is very near to Shinjuku, basically somewhere near the junction very...

It's a tiny hotel room but perfect for 1-2 nights for exploring Shinjuku. Probably too small for extended stays. Booked a smoking room because it was all that was left and was concerned it might have a strong smoke smell, but did not smell of smoke at all. Smoking rooms are on the 7th floor. It is a small space...

Anyone who has stayed in Tokyo knows it isn't a cheap place for accommodation. So I personally think that this hotel lived up to what I had paid. My boyfriend and I just wanted a simple place to stay that was reasonable priced, had a comfy enough bed, our own bathroom and easy to get around from there - and...

We are in tokyo for 7 days and we found no other accomodation for 100eur per night with a such good position (shinjuku) and such good service. Rooms are small but very clean and tidy. The metro station is 100meters far from the hotel. Personel is super kind. Suggested for a medium to long stay in tokyo!

This hotel was perfect for the gay scene, right next to Ni-chome 2 nightlife. The rooms are tiny but have everything you need. It's walkable to Shinjuku main station but Shinjuku San-chome is just across the road. Lots of nice places to eat locally and easy access to the rest of the city via the metro.

This is a tiny hotel in the heart of NiChome, the gay district of Japan. It's very small, which is normal for Japanese hotels. The price is great with it being so close to all the action of NiChome. Helpful tip...if you think you will have a guest for the night it's best to pay for 2, as no to...

The room is average. The bathroom is too small but I still can handle it. But the hotel is quite central. From hotel itself, I can go anywhere including station. Very enjoying to staying here. Ah... the breakfast is okay. Just breads and some beverages (coffee, tea, juices, water). They are still using the manual keys therefore you must leave...

the room is very clean, nice staff, there're free wifi, free water on 4th floor, and vending machine. it's quite close to Shinjuku station (10-15 minutes walk) but not easy to find. I think it's pretty well I like this hotel and want to come again.

This was the first hotel we went during our honeymoon in Japan. Quite surprised as the room is very small, we didn't look at the size (i.e 9 m^2). Anyway the staffs were very polite and nice and our room is lovely and clean. Although it is written that this hotel is only within 3 mins distance from station gate,...

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
