I opt for a room with a view and it was well worth the money spent. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful even though some are not able to speak English well. They still try to serve you in best capacity. Thumbs up!
Checking in and out was seamless. I was grateful to be able to leave my luggage when I went walking around. Location is close to restaurants and convenient stores. Staff was friendly and always had a smile on their face.
This hotel is in a perfect location. The staff is friendly and the hotel is clean and comfortable. Rooms are a bit tight but that is expected in Tokyo. When we checked in we told the woman at the desk that it was our honeymoon so we would love a great room. She put us in a very nice room on the top floor overlooking Mt Fuji. It was wonderful! There was one problem that was a pretty big deal. When we went to check out and get a taxi to the airport we were told that a taxi would be very expensive and that we should have reserved a spot on the bus. Apparently there is a bus that takes you to the airport but it fills up quickly so you need to reserve ahead of time. No one told us that when we checked in. And the day before we left we asked for a late check out and we were still not offered this option. So we wound up paying $26,000 yen for a taxi to narita airport instead of $3,000 for the bus!!! That's almost $200 US dollars. Everything else was great about the hotel, but I hope this review helps future guests so they don't get stuck in the same situation.
APA hotels are usually for Japanese business folks, but they are a great deal for a one or two week stay in Japan. I particularly like APA Hotel Shinjuku Gyoemmae for its proximity to Shinjuku station and the greater Shinjuku area. There are some oddities about the layout (open air hallways), but the rooms are clean and well maintained.
This sprawling business, commercial, and entertainment center never lets up. It is a modern Japanese phenomenon with shopping arcades, flashing neon signs, stand-up noodle bars, and side-street video screens. Some two million people pass through the train station alone. Futuristic-looking City Hall offers a free observation deck with great city views.
