How to Get There
Clean and the the staff friendly, but the standard room is really small, the roof top bar was our escape to place after a day out. Great views, the location is good, a 15 min walk to station, and although in a busy district our room was quiet.
Indeed nothing fancy, and the rooms are small (but that's everywhere in Tokyo). Breakfast is a major disaster though, unless you prefer lukewarm brewed coffee over a fresh espresso (why is your proper cafe downstairs closed in the morning when guest need it badly???).
The one reason I gave it more than 3 stars, though, is your front desk lady, Yumi. She's absolutely the best. How she went above and beyond to help me with something I had forgotten in the hotel is amazing. Thx so much!
Stayed here for 6 nights, the reception staff were always friendly and professional.
the room itself was spacious compared to other hotels in Japan. The hotel is very well located you are spoilt with eating places / choices. Metro stations are not too far either. Really enjoyed my stay at the hotel :).
Hotel is clean, front desk were good. Note that this hotel is located in the red light district of Shinjuku. This is not necessarily a problem, this is the most understated red light district you may come across, but is certainly something that they do not advertise. A couple of comments for the hotel; You should allow hotel guests to bring outside food to outdoor bar area on top floor. You could charge a drink minimum. Otherwise rooms were clean and well maintained, albeit they are small even for Japanese standards, but you are not necessarily spending that much time in your room, so it does not really matter.
Great location, amongst everything Shinjuku has to offer. The lead-in rooms are small, if i can redo my stay i would upgrade to the next room type as i had to leave all my luggage at the door way and had to move it each time i left the room. Bathroom was large, with a shower bath combo. The TV had only 1 English channel which is common in Japan.
Buffet Breakfast was good, plenty of options but if it isn't complimentary I would not pay extra. The Granbell has a nice rooftop bar but be prepared to pay $$$ for a drink.
