very centrally located; great inconvenience to the Tokyo Metro and thus JR railways. Ask the front desk how to go the metro as that was not very obvious, but once found it is simply the best thing. The Hie Jie shrine is next door and lots of restaurants and grocery stores within a 5 min walk.
Great stay despite the typhoon.

We were stay 4 days at this Hotel, we took Limousine bus from Narita and drop us at the Hotel, this is good value when you carry heavy lugguages, located 3 minutes walking distance to Shinjuku subway lines and JR lines.
Lots of restaurants near Hotel, Parks and Goverment building observation floor which is free.

I didn't stay much around, but the hotel was lovely. Clean, very comfortable and with character.
It's at a stonethrow from bustling Shinjuku and yet it is in a quiet area surrounded by nice small alleys with plenty of eating options around.
Transport-wise is ideal since it's very close to a subway line that brings you either into shinjuku (if you don't walk 10 minutes, that is) where you can take all sorts of transportations means, including the Narita Express and the Yamanote line. So, all in all, ticks all the boxes.
This hotel is less than a minute walk from Shinjuku Sanchome station, which makes it incredibly easy to get around via Subway. It is also less than 10 minutes from Shinjuku station itself, which makes it easy to get outside of the city and to and from the airport. The hotel staff was incredibly helpful and assisted us in finding restaurants and sights nearby. The room itself is very small, but that is to be expected in Tokyo. This hotel is close to a lot of shops and restaurants, along with a short walk and or subway ride to Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, Meiji Jingu Shrine, Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, Shibuya Crosing, and Yoyogi Park. The tea, coffee, and water station on the 4th floor, which is available 24 hours, was a nice touch. The breakfast is just bread, juice, and coffee, but it is definitely better than nothing. The wifi worked very well in the room.
We took the Haneda-Shinjuku train and right out of the Shinjuku's JR Station is the taxi's waiting spot.
The taxi took us to the Hotel district side and using his cellphone called Listel Shinjuku who promptly redirected us to the exact location. The driver gave us the difference of the taxi charges opposed to the total amount showing in his taxi meter. By the way, he took care loading and off loading all our luggage, this alone reminds me, I am really in Japan.
We got checked-in right at the 2pm schedule.
Our room was immaculately clean. Love the amenities like, kimono pajamas, sleepers, teas, the deep soaking tub, the bidet, the fridge,the pant's presser, the pillows which are hard and soft sided. The city view from our room is also spellbinding in the early morning. The free-wifi is absolutely top of our needs. The room service and customer service made the difference.
Smooth check-in with a fluent English-speaking person at the desk. My friends (group of 5, 3 men and 2 women) all had a great time. Having had the female experience, the capsules and communal bathrooms with matching pajamas were like something out of a YA fiction book set in a futuristic society where everything is streamlined, organized, and matching. The bathrooms were super clean, with private bathroom stalls and fancy Japanese toilets. Even toothbrushes were provided. The guys were on a different floor, and two of them didn't shower because they didn't feel comfortable being nude next to other dudes. Apparently, the guys have an open shower instead of private stalls.
The rooms themselves had more than enough space for a 5'3" person, and since I slept with my feet to the entrance, had no issues with noise at night. Definitely a worthwhile experience to try at least once.
