Had a trip to Tokyo with my girlfriend, along with 2 other friends (couple). So both parties booked a semi-double room each.
The room is extremely small. If you're doing lots of shopping then i should say finding space to put your luggage and shopping bags would be a hassle. Once that is done, there would literally be no walking space too. You would feel funny about this on the first day but this should be normal to you as Tokyo is a really dense city with limited space. Every other hotel is like that.
The bed fits JUST NICE for an asian couple, with a sufficient space to sleep on your side if that's your preference. Caucasian couples might find it to be a perfect fit, without any room to adjust.
For the price you're paying, it's a great room. Nothing much i could complain about. The hotel staff were polite and helpful. All staff had a good command of english and would definitely understand you.
Location wise, it's a 4 minute walk from Shinjuku-Sanchome subway station. And if you've got the time to spare, you could take a 12 minute walk to Shinjuku's main interchange, in the heart of Shinjuku (you could find all trains leading out to the rest of japan in this station, over 20 platforms). There are a couple of convenient stores surrounding the hotel and also along the way to the subway station.
Definitely would come back to Hotel Tateshina for the value!
Make sure you ask for a non-smoking room/floor if you absolutely hate the stench. The difference is...
