Sun Members Tokyo Shinjuku
Ranked #52 of 84 Hotels / Ryokan in Shinjuku
Reviewed 23 April 2012

We stayed here for 6 nights in January. Our room was a decent size but there was no place to unpack so we put our suitcases on the small loveseat in the room and lived out of our suitcases. The closet could only hold our 2 coats. There was only one person at the front desk that spoke english well so we made sure to ask her her work schedule so we could ask all our questions then. There was no view from the room since our room faced another building so we didnt not get much natural light in the room. There are many convenience stores and coffee shops nearby and the walk to the Shinjuku train station took about 10-15 minutes. There is a shuttle bus from the Narita airport which stops around the corner from the hotel(in front of the Washington hotel) which make the ride from the airport fast and economical. I found the hotel a good value for the money and I felt safe walking in this area.

Stayed here for 2 nights earlier in the month. Our room for 3 was pretty spacious and even had a cosy 2 seater sofa. Even though our room was on the 7th floor, a view outside the windows was non-existent due to presence of an adjacent building barely meters away. Not that we were complaining since we were out of the hotel most of the time. There are plenty of convenience stores (7-11, Family Mart, Lawson) coffee joints (Doutor etc) and eating establishments along the walking route between the hotel and the Shinjuku station.

The hotel is a 20minute walk from the JR Shinjuku station, with Takashimaya, Isetan and plenty of other shops and departmental stores located within a few minutes walking distance from the station. Walking to Kabukicho from the hotel took about 30minutes. The fastest way to get to the hotel from the train station is by exiting via the South exit, but for some reason we kept getting lost and took the slightly longer route out via the West exit on more than one occasion.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Govt Building is a stone throw away from the hotel. You should definitely check out the free observatory on the 54th floor of the govt building for great views of Shinjuku and Tokyo.

All in all the hotel is very good value for money given the fact that it is located in Shinjuku (though admittedly it is not located in a prime location within the area, but hey you cant have it all). We also managed to find an affordable and convenient airport coach service that took us to Narita Airport from the adjacent Washington Hotel, which was a nice way to bring our holiday to an end.

I was staying in a semi-double room on the 7th floor which only had one double bed instead of two for me and my girlfriend.
Although it was a small room, it was enough for short trips.
The staff were polite but those on duty at night spoke little english.
The heat in the room was not stable, i woke up too hot for two consecutive nights.
JR was our main mode for transport, this hotel is 15 minutes away from the west or the south exit of Shinjuku JR station.

We stayed here Feb 2010 so it's a late review. Hotel was older than some hotels in Tokyo, but the place was efficient and clean. Location was great, walking distance to gov building and other areas of interest. Best thing was the buffet breakfast which was exceptional, the food on offer was abundant and very good, western and eastern. It was definetely value for money and I highly recommend it. It's better than the other hotel we stayed on our way back, can't remember the name off the top of my head, and cheaper too.
