Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

We stayed in this hitel for one week starting Aug 1st.
We booked 2 rooms as we are a family of 4. Me, my wife and 2 daughters age 15 and 13.
Location is very good which just a 100mtrs from one if the subway stations and abt
. 10 minutes walk from the main station with so many amenties bearby.
Service is goid and you get full attention of the staff.

Here's the thing with Tokyo hotel rooms... they're going to be small. You can't expect accommodation in the middle of a densely populated metropolis to be spacious. The law of diminishing returns applies to your investment and the return on square footage.
Rose Garden is a little dated, but not so much that it's a concern. The room is small, but not so small that you can't function. The bathroom is well equipped and the WiFi is strong. If there are criticisms they're to do with the lack of English-language television and that's hardly the hotel's fault. The service is pleasant, although they overplay the staff's English fluency.
Overall this is a very good value stay, right next door to a train station (Nishi-Shinjuku). Over the road is a McDonalds, down the street is a convenience store and the below-ground chicken restaurant that's a stone's throw away is very enjoyable.
Let me put it this way - spending more won't get you much more.

Room Tip: We booked a room with the smaller bed and, assuming that's what we were given, is perfectly fine...

Typical Tokyo hotel. Yes it's small and cramped. Service was good. Stayed 5 nights. Good value especially if you're travelling with kids. The hotel could not place us with ajoining rooms but did their best to have us on the same floor near to each other.

We experienced a small earthquake so I guess the building is earthquake safe!

Lots of eating places nearby the hotel. The hotel is quiet and is only a short walk to get into the centre of Shinjuku.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with family

Great value, great location and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms small, but comfortable. Free wifi so one can skype home and tell the folks we were still alive. Terrific shower. Lots of places to dine between the hotel and Shinjuku station. Best to learn some Japanese as no one speaks english. Buy a SUICA card and load it up with yen. You can use the card for the underground, for lockers, food, vending machines, buses...loved it.
Use the Narita Express train to and from Narita airport. If you have long legs make sure you don't book the bulkhead seats, a bit cramped.
My son and I had such a good time at this hotel, we'll definitely return.

Good hotel 1 mt walk from nishi shinjuku subway. The hotel rooms are small but very clean and new. Great location right smack in shinjuku. Good wifi in the rooms. Everything in good working condition. Great shower one of the best in Japan. Price wise about 150 usd for a triple room. A lot of good eating places nearby. Check out island plaza directly opposite hotel. Nice and decently priced restaurants in that plaza. Yoshinoya a chain of budget Japanese fast food just next to hotel. Try their eel rice. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor room.

The location of this great value hotel cannot be emphasised enough. It is about 6 doors from the Nishi Shinjuku subway station which is a hub for several subway lines accessing popular destinations. And the hotel is definitely within walking distance of Shinjuku station as well as Shinjuku itself which is a must-see area. There are a number of modest eating options within metres of the hotel. There are also eating options within the hotel that are Italian style. The hotel staff were efficient and helpful. The room was well equipped and reasonably sized. A definite value for money option in a great location.
