Stayed at the Sun Members Shinjuka week of 5/7/12 with a group of 38 college students. After reading the limited number of reviews for this hotel, some of which were less than positive, I basically said, "oh well, it's good enough for students, the price is right, and we are in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo." Well, I have no idea why a previous reviewer said this hotel is 'inconvenient'. It is at most a 15 minute walk from Shunjuku station above or below ground (the underground JR-subway connection to the Tokai line runs to within a block of the hotel). Many Japanese noodle houses, including a Yoshinoya (cheapo rice bowl chain - $5-6) are within walking distance. The inexpensive ($10-12) 'Inishi Shinjuku', a hole in the wall located in the alley was exceptional for udon and gyoza. Four things to note about this hotel. First, super nice and attentive front desk staff - sufficient English, helpful and always smiling. Second, nice rooms with good firm beds, down pillows and down comforters (yes, the closets are small but worked fine for two of us in a twin room). Third, the hotel is very clean, and had plenty of non-smoking rooms. Finally, breakfast was great with a reasonable selection of both Japanese and 'Merican' food. All in a nice boutique hotel in a good location.
