“Perfect unless you need wifi”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

Great location, great value for money and great views over the city. If you're staying in Tokyo and you don't need access to the Internet it's ideal, however, if like me you want to check info on sights, routes and email home while travelling you might be best looking elsewhere. This may sound petty, but for such a good quality hotel not to have wifi in each room or at least the lobby of each floor is a joke. This is illustrated when you visit the main lobby of the hotel to find half the guests trying to access the only router available (which is terrible to boot). Hope this helps

We stayed here for ten nights of our holiday and had a very comfortable stay, right at the gateway to Kabukicho and the rest of Shinjuku's amazing nightlife, shopping and restaurants. A 5 minute walk to Shinjuku station's East exit makes it so convenient for travel around Tokyo and surrounds.

The deluxe double room was great value and perfect for an extended stay for the big bed and extra space that Japanese hotels do not usually provide at this price. My partner is a very tall guy, and he was quite comfortable by Japanese standards. We were very happy staying here and will stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want more space, go for the Deluxe Double, and ask them to put you in a quiet room on an uppe...

What a great hotel, single room is perfect for the solo traveller. Rooms are clean and modern and quiet. Hotel has free internet computers in lobby, but best feature is the great location; five minutes from Shinjuku station, surrounded by restaurants and bars, and right next to red light district. Definately would stay here again and highly recommend it

Stayed in double room type B on 8th floor. Easy to find, 2mins across from shinjuku train station east exit. Check-in staff efficient & english speaking. Room size 30msq, with small tv, fridge and airplane sized bathroom. There are smoking & non smoking floors, however both rooms reeked strongly of cigarette smell. A/C is central & cannot be altered, no window openings. No issues with noise

Room Tip: Be sure to remind them of a non smoking room at check-in if a non smoker

We stayed at this hotel twice - the first 2 nights (Standard Double Room - 15.3SQM) at the start of our trip then again during our last 3 nights (Deluxe Double Room - 30.6SQM). It was definitely worth paying a little extra for double the room size! Rooms were clean, very comfortable, and offered sweepping city views. Location was at the pulse of Shinjuku with plenty of restaurants, bars, and night life (including red light district) literally at the foot of the hotel. Reception is outdated however the only time spent there was for wifi access (no access in rooms I'm afraid). Staff of course friend and spoke good english. Overall, very pleasant stay and would stay again.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for double the room size - trust me, it's worth it!
