Hotel Sunroute Higashi Shinjuku
Ranked #11 of 84 Hotels / Ryokan in Shinjuku
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 December 2013

I booked the hotel for a business trip to Tokyo. Arriving at Narita Airport, the location is not optimal as some changes of subways are required (I took the wrong station and walked along some crowded routes but the closer station needed one additional hop). However, some quite and nice parks, some coffee shops and the central Shinjuko shopping can be reached by a some minutes walk. The room was clean, included a desk, but was a bit small (from a European point of view). The room was quiet. Free WiFi was included. The window was rather high and directed to the back yard. The "cabinet" in the floor could be larger so that even an European suite could easily fit in. The bath was clean, the bathtube was equipped with a shower curtain and if you like Japanese toilets you will be able to play around with the different settings. The breakfast was in Asian-Japanese style including noodles. The personal at the front desk was very helpful and friendly (e.g., they recommended some good restaurants just round the corner).

Room Tip: I would prefer a higher floor although I did not experience disturbing noise

We booked the hotel based on recommendation that the location is convenient. Not exactly. It is close to the East Shinjuku station but it is not in the central Shinjuku area and in fact it is a subway stop away. You can walk to the central Shinjuku area but it is a good 25-minute walk. Not fun in winter time.

The rooms are very small. Even though I have been to Tokyo several times before and know that hotel rooms are small. This one is even smaller. We had trouble even accessing our suitcases. The bathroom is small and basic, including amenities.

Only one hotel staff speaks English, broken English.

Located in a quiet office area of Shinjuku, this hotel is best for families and it has it's own airport limo bus stop right in front!

Rooms are basic and small, usual in Japanese standards so don't bring ur large suitcases. Toiletries are provided and service staff are ever so pleasant. There's a convenience store right across the road and MacD beside it. Krispy Kreme is hidden in the office area across the road.

Although the Shinjuku malls are not at it's door steps (5mins walk), it's close proximity to Shinjuku bus station (buses to Disneyland/sea), safe/quiet location and good service will beckon me to stay here in my next trip.

This hotel is very near the higashi shinjuku station. Just walk out of the station and you can see the hotel immediately on your left. Although the room is small, it is good enough for 2 big luggages. You can walk to shinjuku station within 20 minutes and along the way, you can also shop at isetan, h&m, forever 21, uniqlo and more. Buffet breakfast is good as well, with a number of food choices to choose from. There are quite a number of restaurants opposite the hotel as well, so you do not have to worry about going hungry at night. Overall, this is a very good location to stay in and also cheaper, would come and stay in this hotel if I am coming to tokyo again. =)

The rooms were smaller than "normal" hotel rooms, but that's what's to be expected when living in one of the world's biggest cities. Overall a great experience and a pretty good breakfast buffet. They had both a western buffet and a Japanese buffet.

Room Tip: Keep in mind that they have rooms for smokers. Accidentally ended up in one of those. Didn't bot...

Hotel is at a great location, it is about 15 steps from subway station once you walk out and the JR Line is about a 12 min walk away. Korean town is very close by, cheap price, bed is comfy, but room is a bit small but I believe most of the rooms are small in Tokyo unless you pay for the hotel. The staffs are friendly. I will stay at this hotel again the next time I come.
