We stayed at APA Hotel Shinjuku Gyoemmae mainly due to location. It's a short walk to central Shinjuku which is a convenient hub and also the last stop for the Narita Express. Or if the weather is bad, it's only 50m from the nearest metro station.
The hotel staff are friendly and the hotel is maintained in excellent condition.
However, like most hotels in the area, prepare yourself for some of the smallest hotel rooms in the world. Not much space to do anything other than sleep, but that's no real problem staying in an area like Shinjuku with so much to do!
Pretty much the biggest rooms we've had in japan save for grand Pacific le daiba. Quite close to all the action once you figure out where the train station is. Staff were extremely efficient once they understood what you wanted.
Fantastic location, 5 minutes to Shinjuku train station with free hotel shuttle bus every 20 minutes. You can get anywhere in Japan including the Narita Express from there.
Great breakfast. Some rooms face west and we had a spectacular view of Mount Fuji. Excellent concierge, very attentive staff. Very nice rooms and excellent housekeeping.
Some non smoking rooms are on smoking floors. Be sure to get on a non smoking floor, trust me on that.
Very nice comfortable big rooms nd nice facities very ideal for big families nice clean and well lighted barhrooms the staff were very accomodating and understanding they go out of their way to help you
Staff went out of their way to take care of us. Their English was far superior to larger, fancier hotels we stayed at in Tokyo and Kyoto. Room was good size and comfortable -- despite lots of young people staying there during part of our visit, hotel was very quiet. Breakfast was very basic compared to other hotels, but still better than going to 7-11 and picking up a few things. We'd return here in a heartbeat.
We arrived to find out that I had booked us in for one less night than intended. The man at the front desk fixed up our issue with no fuss, organizing to have a triple bed room made up within twenty minutes. The room was spacious and very comfortable, but it was the staff that really made Shinjuku Prince for us. The man that had helped us with the room was a continuous source of help throughout our stay, I wish I had got his name so I could say thank you!
