Located 500 meters from Shinjuku station on a quiet corner (next to a graveyard), the Nishi Shinjuku is clean, quiet and affordable. The staff speaks enough English to settle matters and the rooms are small but comfortable, clean and air-conditioned. Breakfast is not stellar, but it was good enough to help one over a wee hangover. Cheap, amenable lodging is very hard to find in Tokyo, so the Nishi Shinjuku is a real gem. I'd strongly recommend it to visitors who tremble at 4 star hotel rates.
I have always experienced excellent service here. One of the main reasons I have prefered to stay here even though the price is higher than a number of other hotels is because of the excellent service and because they have a large selection of non-smoking floors in addition to large non-smoking sections in their restaurants.
The Century Hyatt caters to a large number of foreign businessmen and it is one of the best hotels of choice if you are staying in Tokyo.
The staff are very helpful and they all speak English well. The Hotel also offers good views of the Shinjuku landscape.
The view from the restaurant on the lobby floor is nice and sunny providing a good way to start your morning with a newspaper (free) and a cup of coffee.
My stay at the New City Hotel was pleasant. The beds are comfortable, not hard and stiff, so you can get a good nights rest. There are televisions in every room. The bathrooms are a bit small, but they're manageable.
The restaurant in the hotel is called "Mermaid" Restaurant. I ate the buffet. There was a decent amount of selection, and all of the food I tried was good!
It's located near Shinjuku's Park and the government building.
Have you ever watched 'Lost in Translation' starring Scarlet Johansson and Bill Murray? If you have, then you would know by now that that filming took place in Shinjuku Park Hyatt Hotel. Now, before you make plans to book a room here, just take it cost a whopping 50,000yen to stay here! The next best thing you can do is to take a drink at the 52nd floor at the New York Bar ( same floor as New York Grill) and listen to American live jazz.
Space is premium in Japan and sleeping in a cupboard-like space is not unusual. Claustrophobia is not an option here too unless you want to fork out an indecent amount for your hotel room.

Hotel prices are astronomical in Tokyo. Resting your head in one of the 5*hotels in Tokyo will pay for the GNP of a third world country. Well, before you burn a permanent hole in your pocket, try staying in this business hotel. Though it's situated some distance away from the main shopping area, it's conveniently situated along the Airport Limousine bus route. Just board the bus at the airport and it'll drop you right at the hotel. No thinking required.
The double room I stayed in was the size of a walk-in wardrobe. Though it's small, it was very clean and it had every creature comfort in it. It's ok for me since I'm considered a midget by European standards but I pity the bigger-sized traveller who has to yawn and stretch back..." Godammn it, Honey, my leg is in the toilet bowl...."
