Stayed at Sunlite from 1-8 May. Found it to be at an excellent location, close to train lines and subway is even closer (Exit C7).
No wifi in room, but free LAN cable if needed. They provide adaptor if needed. (free)
Laundry is done free, (even soap is free), but only two machines, so you need to plan yr wash carefully. Wash cycle is 3 hours long !!, I could not spare the time to sit there and wait when there is so much to see and experience about Tokyo.
Yes, rooms are pretty tiny, but space is premium in Tokyo so you will pay more if you want a larger room. They provide enough bathroom amenities. Setback is if you have a large suitcase, there may be not much place to put it. Also, lack of places to hang your stuff. They provide an electric kettle, and green tea and two small cups, no other utensils.
TV channels are all Japanese and they even offer Japanese porn (pay for TV). I have asked the hotel to consider some English language channels for its customers. Hopefully, its done the next time I am there.
The staff are very helpful and do speak better English than you would find in most of Japan.
For new visitors, the subway station closest is Shinjuku Sanchome, which is merely 7 minutes away. Isetan is 10 mins away. All major stores are roughly 15-30 mins away by foot.
You cannot go wrong to pick this hotel for location. Rooms are tiny, but their decent service and close connectivity is a major plus.
We didn't have breakfast at the hotel because there was ample places to eat nearby the hotel. Plus, previous reviews didn't recommend it. In fact, some of the restaurants close by served excellent food.
One thing I didn't like was that they asked for payment upfront when I checked in. I usually like to pay upon check out. I am not sure if this is the usual Japanese hotel policy.
