Not speaking or reading Japanese can cause a severe culture shock in Shinjuku - just look at the train station to which you just arrived from Narita Airport: this is where more than 8 million people pass daily through endless escalators, stairs, gates, and turnstiles. So what a relief it would be to learn that your hotel is a very short walking distance from the train station! Just make sure to look at the Google maps first (in Tokyo, Google has mapped out much more than in American cities - even underground floors are clearly marked). So you will find it very quickly.
The lobby is small, but the staff is wonderful - if this is your first touch with Japanese customer service, start getting amazed - by comparison, Canadian are the rudest boors :) The rooms are tiny (see photos), but well-thought out - and you will not stay there longer than needed, there is a whole Tokyo out there for you. The price is hard to beat, location perfect, breakfast very well organized and neatly presented. There are so many restaurants, stores, coffee shops, 7/11s and so on that the hardest thing would be to choose what/where to eat.
The windows have heavy blinds - as outside it is the ocean of lights and advertising. So you may want to bring your eyemask and ear plugs.
Nevertheless! - HIGHLY recommended.!
