Private Guess House
A guess house with 2 rooms, very centralize, within walking distance to Shinjuku Station, the Metropolitan, and business area. Very quiet and convenience.
Unique Quality: Kitchen provided here for you to cook even during your vacation in Japan.
Breakfast will be served upon request (+US5).
The guess is located on 4th floor, no elevator available.
Directions: Shinjuku West Exit, along Ome-Kaido Way, keep right.
when reaching Nishi Tetsu Shinjuku, turn right and then left before the school.
We stayed here for a total of 6 nights. The hotel is conveniently located in Shinjuku, and it took just a few minutes by foot from the Shinjuku Station West exit. The room is clean and size was ok (considering that this is Japan, and we didn't really pay a lot for the accommodation), bathroom was also clean and came with the auto-toliet. Amenities such as toothbrush, toothpaste, bathing foam, shampoo and conditioner were provided.
The staff were able to speak some English and were polite and professional.
The booking made through the online portal (Asiarooms) included breakfast, and that gave us good value. However, the breakfast menu will not change (cos the Japanese eat mostly the same type of breakfast, we guessed - rice, miso soup, grilled fish, eggs, etc), so don't expect variety from the breakfast selection!
Unique Quality: The hotel's location is great. Proximity to Shinjuku station makes travelling a breeze, and there are plenty of cheap eateries around the hotel. Although it is located in Shinjuku (which is always busy), the hotel is situated off the main road, and that gives us some quiet from the busy streets. The cleanliness of the room and bathroom is also good.
Price was definitely a factor to consider, since Japan is expensive. We paid about Singapore 200 dollars per room per night, and considering the location, it was worth it.
Directions: Exit the Shinjuku Station (West Exit), walk past Mcdonald's and it is located in the side-road on your left.
Good business hotel in Shinjuku
This hotel is a Western-style business hotel in the heart of Tokyo, just 5 mins walking distance from the busy Shinjuku railway station. You can also walk to Kabuki-cho and many eateries nearby. Lots of shopping within reach too. Extremely convenient location. A lot of nearby hotels would charge 2-3 times more and may not even be any better.
Rooms in Japan are notoriously small but this one was reasonably comfortable (we loved the hot soak in the deep bathtub). You can request for a non-smoking room (a lot of Japanese business travellers smoke).
Service is good, friendly and quick. Not all staff speak English well but you can get by.
Best of all, it's very affordable. Good value for money. I booked online through its website (the staff are very responsive in their email), and it has good internet rates too.
Unique Quality: Unbeatable location and excellent price! There is a great udon restaurant at the junction of the road where you turn into the hotel. Try it!
Excellent Affordable Hotel
I hate to advertise this great place, as I'd like to stay there again when I return to Japan! If you're looking for an affordable, clean, central place to stay, this is it! I stayed here for 4 nights in December 2003.
First off, the location is fantastic - only about a 5-7 minute walk from Shinjuku Station, and located in a quiet side street. There's a Family Mart and other convenience stores only a block away too. In my opinion, Shinjuku is the best place to stay in Tokyo, b/c of the nightlife, shopping, restaurants, and Red Light District.
This is a newer hotel, and it overlooks a cemetary (probably why it's so cheap), but I felt safe walking back at night. The hotel has shampoo, conditioner and soap dispensers, disposable razors, combs, etc. for your use. Also, a TV and a mini fridge. You can pay to use the tea bags and coffee in the room.
You can book this hotel through http://www.japanhotel.net or their website listed below. The employees at the Japan Hotel Network are excellent, and can find you a suitable room if this one is full or doesn't meet your needs.
Unique Quality: Excellent location, great value, clean & modern, quiet area, no curfew, "business hotel" style accomodation
Directions: A few blocks north of Shinjuku Station. See website for directions / map.
