The staff was friendly and useful. The rooms are comfy and it is very good deal for a relatively low price. It is very close to one station that gives you access to Yamanote line, which gives you access to the rest of Tokyo.
The area is very crowded. I would say that this part of Tokyo is exactly how people who has never visited Japan imagine the area: crowded, noisy, full of little stores with huge ads everywhere and the weird people who really "live" the anime and manga that they read. I know some people travel to Japan just for this; nevertheless it is not my vibe, so, that's the only part that I didn't like of the neighborhood. To be fair, the hotel is a couple of meters removed from the main street, providing a good haven from all the noise and activity described above.
Location was convenient and safe. It was close to the station which has frequent services. Room was small but for the short time we were in it, we were happy with the facilities. It was also extremely clean.
The staff were really nice, the room was clean and spacious. Only 3 mins walk from Shin-Okubo station. It’s amazing. I’ll be back!
The location, right next to Shin-Okubo train station in the heart of Shinjuku. Friendly English-speaking staff. Cozy room with a bed, toilet and shower - basically all you need in a place to stay. Oh and a mini fridge.
Walls are pretty thin, so if the other guests are being loud in the corridor you can hear them. Wasn’t a problem most of the time.
24 hour front desk with friendly staff. Very close to Shin-Okubo train station and a range of restaurants and bars nearby.
No lift so you could hear everyone that walked up and down the stair-case at all hours of the night. Not good if you are a light sleeper.
Shinokubo City Hotel is 5 minutes from JR Shinokubo Station. This surprisingly quiet location offers great access to a concert hall, theater, other art facilities, and several historical sites. All rooms are non-smoking, and feature a simple, modern Western style with WiFi, LAN, TV, and a bath set. Exceptional customer service and hospitality mean that this location also features 24 hour check-in. Tourists will also find a copy of the Green Tourism guidebook upon request.
