Stayed at 3 different hotels throughout our trip.
This hotel seems to have the most english-speaking staff but yet don't appear to be the most friendly
Don't get me wrong, they are not rude or anything ... they will gladly assist, but it's just a bit different from the other hotels -- might be due to the configuration / layout of the front desk and lift entrance / exit points.
In any case, with this many english-speaking (and some quite fluent actually), I expected the staff to be a lot more pro-active in engaging their guests (vs other hotels)
Anyway, not much problem encountered during our stay. Location is really just beside the Subway Station (and just across the road is Mcdonalds, 1st floor of the hotel is Tully's coffee and beside that is Lawson ... similar to 7-11 convenience store)
Good to use as a base to explore the northwards and southwards areas of Shinjuku (because this Subway Station is an interchange with 2 main lines > the Oedo Line and Fukutoshin Line)
It's about 20mins walk from Kabuki-cho restaurants / cafes / etc
Room size (as expected) is ridiculously small.
Bathroom is practical but also small (even for typical smaller sized Asian male / female)
Priced at slightly more than Y10,000 a night (for 2 pax) seems like a reasonable deal for this location and age of hotel
Washing machine and dryer available for DIY laundry (if needed).
Room cleaning is done daily.
