I liked the smoking double room on the 4th floor. I really liked the location. Eveything is so close and tokyo shinjuku prettymuch has all your food needs covered. We didnt attempt the restaurant or the vod system. But small as the room was. Us 2 fat kiwis made it work. We will highly rcommend to our friends and fams. Thank yous so much

clean and expedite checkin-checkout, lean room
Good hotel, clean and with expedite checkin-checkout. They will ask all gest for passports, looks like it's a requirement, rooms was very small, and dont have closets for your clothes or microwave, but I think is similar in other Japan hotels for the same price.
