Room Tip: No negative notes.

The bedroom was small, but clean. The free wifi was available in the room, which is a big bonus in Tokyo. It was in a quiet location, away from the bright lights & madness.

Within easy walking distance to the centre of Shinjuku, a great little stop off. Definitely recommended as a mid budget hotel.

Very friendly and helpful english speaking staff. Walkable from Shinjuku Sanchome station (about a mile or mile and a half). Will def. recommend this hotel. Very near to Shinjuku entertainment area and well connected with major tourist areas.

The staff were friendly and most knew sufficient English to be helpful. Although the room was small (a double) it was comfortable and had the amenities you would expect. The low ceilings in the corridor were a source of amusement since it was our first hotel in Japan and it is obvious they cater for Asians who are not as tall as westerners! It was a little hard to find initially but once we got our bearings, it was well located and easy walking distance to the majority of the places we wanted to visit in Shinjuku.

Stayed 5 days, one person to a room. Rooms are small by US standards but typical for Japan at this price point. Very small closet with only 2 small drawers so most of my clothes stayed in the suitcase. Rooms have individual thermostats tied to the key card switch in the wall so cooling/lighting only works when you are in the room (and the key card is in the wall switch) but cooled the room down well. Convenient switches for lighting, deep Japanese soaking tub, bidet, small in-room fridge (fabulously convenient), easy access to Shinjuku-gyoen, easy access to 3 or 4 convenience stores (Lawson, Family Mart and a good on-hotel breakfast buffet (there's bacon!!! as well as scrambled eggs, cereal, miso and saba) cover the necessities well. The staff is helpful but is very limited on english. It's a 15 min walk to the Seibusen and 2 minutes more to the east entrance of Shinjuku Station. That is a short walk by Japanese standards. Closenenoug to Shinjuku to be convenient but just a little further to give you a bit of seperation and quiet.

Like every other reviewer of this hotel and probably anyone traveling to a new country I was very concerned that getting a moderately cheap hotel would mean a diminished quality of service. My partner and I flew-in to Tokyo from Narita International Airport. We took the train from there to Shinjuku Station and because we didn't know any better, we walked a good few long blocks before we reached the hotel.

Little did we know that there was a connection train at the Shinjuku Station that would have taken us to a metro line closer to our hotel lol.

Once at the hotel the check-in was pleasant and quick. They understood English and off to the room we went. The room was a tad tight, but it was definitely comfortable for two people. The bed was comfortable and the view from our window wasn't bad at all!

The best thing I love about this hotel is the access to the area. We are minutes from a train station, a convenience store, and pharmacy is literally down the street -- and a 5 minute walk from the hotel brings you into the live action of the city.

Oh!!! This hotel is one block from the Gay District of Tokyo.

I will definitely be staying at this hotel again - budget or not.

I was nervous at first about the hotel because I was concerned about 2 things (1) distance from the metro station (2) cleanliness/size of room.

When I arrived at Tokyo I took the Narita Express to Shinjuku Station and walked to the hotel, it took me about 20 mins to walk to the hotel from Shinjuku Station ( I later found that there is actually a nearer station - Shinjuku-sanchome which is about 8-10 mins walk from the hotel).
I was not difficult to find the hotel, and I stayed there for 4 nights and because the hotel was located at a back lane is was very quiet.

The room size was decent, it has everything a traveller would need. I was extremely impressed on how well stocked the rooms was. There is a mini fridge where I stock my beers and drinks I can easily buy from the convenience store down the street. An ironing board, kettle to boil water, hair dryer, slippers, night robes and even a bottle of fabric sanitizer to spray on my clothes/jackets. There is a flat screen TV and a control centre with alarm clock next to the bed. Most importantly there is free WIFI connection.

The toilet was not too big but they manage to get a medium bathtub with shower and a automatic "Japanese style toilet bowl" with remote control bidet, and wash basin in so I cant complain.

The staff is very polite and friendly always greeting you when they see you. Although they don't speak much English some converse very well in Mandarin.

I would definitely come back to this hotel, my stay was pleasent and the rooms are value for money.
