I stayed here for 4 nights in February 2014. This was my first visit to Tokyo, and I wanted to be within walking distance to the Shinjuku Station. With a little advance planning I didn't have any trouble finding the hotel by walking from Shinjuku Station (about a 7min walk). The location is relatively quiet (for Tokyo) but just steps from the heart of the Shinjuku entertainment district with a plethora of dining, drinking, and entertainment options. The front desk staff were polite and spoke fluent English. My room was a decent size...I was expecting something unmanageably small for the price I paid in such a central location, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was actually a bit larger than single hotel rooms I've stayed at in Paris. The room was quiet, had a nice view, and the bathroom was a decent size and very modern. The housekeepers did a great job everyday and the room was always spotless when I returned from sightseeing.
Most importantly, this location is excellent for transit options to explore Tokyo, and it is also a one-seat ride from Narita Airport to Shinjuku Station on the Narita Express train (about 75/80mins).
The only negatives I can think of were the free breakfast (limited options and some rather strange dishes for breakfast time) and that you have to take an escalator or lift from street level up to the 3rd floor, then take a different lift to the guest rooms. Overall, this is a great choice for travelers who looking for a clean, modern, mid-range hotel without paying the crazy prices of the Park Hyatt, etc.
