“Convenient, value for money”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Some distance away from Shinjuku Main Station, but we have no problem with 15mins walk during my 7nights stay. In the hotel building itself, there's plenty of restaurants, cafes & convenient mart. Quite a few good food joints around the area. But on my arrival upon check in, i encountered a not so polite front desk male personnel. On other days, the rest were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping staff were friendly and greet you everytime we passed by. The pillow were so flat that I had to use the bathrobe layered below their pillow. Room is no doubt VERY VERY SMALL but I love the bathroom, though is small but u get everything u need. I especially like the 'deep' bathtub

Shinjuku Washington provided a nice place to stay for my first trip to Tokyo. It's just a few blocks from Shinjuku Station, so getting to/from it is easy and you're a short train ride from anywhere in Tokyo, or the nightlife in Shinjuku area.

The Shinjuku Washington Hotel is located in the business and government section of Shinjuku. The location is a bit of a walk to Shinjuku JR and Metro Station (one of the busiest in the metropolitan Tokyo area. From the Shinjuku Station one get anywhere via JR Trains, or Tokyo Metro. Near the station offers plenty of interesting shops, restaurants, and nightlife. The hotel is part of the bus shuttle system for 3000 yen one way (The shuttle is a super deal, compared to taking a taxi one way to/from Narita which was about $293.00). It is a large hotel with plenty of restaurants inside the complex. Like most Japanese hotels unless you book into a four or five star western style hotels the rooms at the Shinjuku Washington Hotel is very small. The rooms are clean and offer free internet via LAN connection. The lobby of the hotel is located on the 3rd floor. Staff was very helpful, and spoke decent english. Stayed there for five nights at the beginning of my trip, and two nights upon returning to Tokyo before leaving Japan. Was able to leave one piece of luggage at the hotel which was helpful. If your breakfast is not included in your booking price, you should go ahead and pay for it. I tried both the breakfast buffet (25 Floor in the Main Building) and the Japanese Breakfast on the Second Floor both are 1500 Yen. The buffet offers unlimited everything with both Western and Japanese items for breakfast, and unlimited coffee (a must for me). One thing to note if you are doing the breakfast buffet is to get there at 7:00 AM or around 9:30 AM as people really pack the restaurant. It also offers a great view of Tokyo's Municipal Government Buildings. I would consider staying at The Washington Shinjuku Hotel again, as the price is very good, staff was helpful, and the location worked out just fine for me.

Room Tip: It is hard for me to say as I was located on the 10th floor my first stay and 9th floor on my second...

We stayed here twice in December 2010, the first time we stayed here our room was incredibly small & stunk of smoke (this hotel, guests can smoke in the rooms)...the air conditioning was stuck on one temperature (way too hot) and you couldn't open the window. Because the room was so small, the only place we could leave our suitcases was in the room hallway.

The second time we stayed here, we got a larger room with a opening window - much better!

If you can, try and get a larger room...it is worth it!

I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel again.

I stayed for 6 nights and it's true what other people are saying. The rooms are very small but the price was right so I don't mind. I don't spend that much time in my room anyway. The room was very warm. It would be nice if the climate controls were controlled by a thermostat. There's just a fan and I'm not sure if it was blowing warmer air or cooler air. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was good. Just a few blocks walk to Shinjuku Station. I wouldn't recommend this hotel for a couple but if you're solo it's okay.
