Stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. I have been to japan 6 times and this is one of the bigger rooms and bathrooms I have had. For being so close to Shinjuku station the room size was amazing, usually only see that further out.
You can ask for a router when checking in and then you can have wifi in your room.
Staff were friendly and just a short walk to East and West Shinjuku. Great Stay. Thanks!
An older looking hotel with a small simple reception, original tiles and features and has good bedrooms. It is very close to the Ginza and Higashi Ginza subway stations. Asakusa for Senso-ji is only a few stops on the Higashi Ginza line. The staff were very helpful and there always seemed to be an English speaker available. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space for suitcases. There was even a small wardrobe. We asked for extra pillows and they arrived very quickly. There were loads of places very close for coffee and breakfast first thing. On our last evening we found a restaurant opposite the hotel called Tofuro advertising 'Edo' food. The menu looked good, but when we took the lift down to B2, the place was just amazing! It was like walking out into an old Edo street, with reconstructed buildings housing the tables on different levels (a bit like the Shambles in York museum). We were really pleased with our food, and loved the fact that the Japanese kids there were just as amazed as us! The hotel is a 10 min taxi ride to the T-Cat for the Limousine bus to Narita.
stayed on 19th May 2014 with a friend for 70usd/night, 1min walk to exit 2 tawaramachi station on ginza line (G17), reasonable space of room for japan standard, clean room, excellent power shower, very comfy pillow and mattress. they kept our luggage after check out. 10-15min walk to sensoji temple Receptionist very helpful & try their best to make us understand their english. will come back to this hotel for next japan trip. Highly recommended
Stayed one night. After spending two weeks trekking in Nepal, was great to have clean pjs, towels and slippers waiting in my locker. Shower/ bath room was amazing. Actually had a great sleep in the capsule
This was something different! When we wanted to take a shower, we found out that there aren't any western style showers around, everything is communal! We were a little apprehensive at first (being naked around others), but no one cares, no one will look at you. The idea is that you're a guest at the sauna with a sleepover (capsule). You'll be requested to walk around in their attire (robes), and you'll have free use of the sauna facilities, which is great. There's a hot & cold pool, as well as a sauna. What is irritating is the procedure you have to go through when going out/coming in. At arrival, take off your shoes after leaving the elevator to the 4th floor. Go to the desk, check in (some staff don't speak english though), and you'll have to place your shoes in the shoes locker. After that, you'll be handed the luggage locker key (they're small, you may have to place any suit cases in the locker area).
Each time you go out, you'll have to hand in your locker key, and you'll be given a piece of paper on which is written your locker number. When coming back, you have to hand them the piece of paper, you'll be given the locker key, and you'll have to change to the sauna robes...
The place has a late 70s, early 80s feel to it, which I thought was great. The capsules are OK to sleep in.Do bring your ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. They don't have a lock! So keep your valuables in the locker.
