Pretty good choice for anyone staying in Shinjuku. The room is small, but typical for a Japanese hotel. The staff were great with English. They'll keep your bags for you if you need to check in or check out early, which is really nice.
The WiFi signal isn't the strongest, but it was really nice to have. Location is great. 8 minutes from Shinjuku station, right in between East and West exit.
IMPORTANT - My Expedia confirmation stated that check in starts at 11AM. THIS IS WRONG. Check in is at 3PM.

Pleasant stayed here for very first 5-day trip to Tokyo.
The location is just excellent for the shoppers as it is located nearby to the shopping centres and tones of nice restaurants.
Don't miss the "Godzilla" Building- The Toho Mall is also has the Grand Opening on 17 April 2015 which is just 5 mins away from the Hotel. And it has new restaurants and bars at the Ground floor.
Bargaining price at the central of Shinjuku for budget traveller.
Tokyo Style: Very small room
Our trip was alil rushed and when we were about to make bookings,all hotels were almost fully booked this we stayed at Vintage.
It is more like a budget hotel stay,very small room.
Location wise,it's closer to seibu shinjuku station. To get to shinjuku station,will takes you about 15mins. If you walk through Kabukicho,it is better Not to go back to hotel at late hours (especially for women)
To go to the airport limo service at shinjuku Keio plaza,if you have a lot of luggages like us,you may take a taxi (730¥)
So it's more affordable than dragging your luggages to the limo station.
I suggest you lock and leave your luggages at front desk instead of bringing it up to the small room.
Overall,pleasant stay :))
We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights as a family of four adults and a child. The location is a bit far from Shinjuku Station (approx. 800m) but will not be a big problem if travelling with few luggages. We booked 2 separate rooms but found them very small. I guess it will be fine for travelers on a budget. Though they could hardly speak English, the staff were very helpful and efficient. Check-in and out were fast and smooth. The wi-fi connection was unstable. We did not rely on it too much because we had a pocket wifi rented at the airport, which was a good thing and advisable to travelers in Japan. Buffet breakfast is also served daily from 7-11AM on a resaonable rate but with limited choices. Worry not though, as Japanese restaurants are everywhere near the hotel. Also, the rooms are cleaned daily and toiletries are provided.
Overall we had a very good experience at this hotel. And if given another chance, I will definitely book at this same hotel next time.
There is many restaurants around the hotel.
It extremely suitable for single traveller.
The room is tidy and the enivronment is relax. Location is good. It is good to have breakfast included. The room has air purifier.
I stayed Hotel the Vintage Shin-juku one night on business from Osaka. Location and Accommodation was more fine than I imagined as many visitors say. Room including bed and sanitary was a little bit small, but clean and comfortable. 10 minutes walk to Kabuki-cho area so you can be back easily to the hotel. I must recommend to foreigners as one Japanese.
The room was tiny. We could barely open two large luggage at the same time which made packing rather challenging. Other than that, it was quite functional with basic amenities provided but not suitable for long stays. The smoking room was not a good option because we could hardly smoke in the room because the ventilation was quite bad. The wifi connection was also not too good in the rooms.
The location was its biggest advantage. It was within the kabuki-cho area where there were plenty of food even late into the night, entertainment, drinks and convenience stores / supermarkets everywhere. Near proper pubs and Don Quijote which opens 24hours. Less than 10minutes walk to the main shinjuku station and the airport bus terminal outside lumine.
It's conveniently located at Shinjuku. About 5 to 10 mins walk through Kabuchiko. There's many restaurants around the area so there's no need to worry about getting hungry.
Coin laundry is about 5mins away. There's many Korean restaurants on the way to the coin laundry. Coin laundry is open from 6am to 11pm. You can purchase washing powder from the shop's vending machine.
Now, the room... I've got a semi-double room. The room is tiny. But this is Japan. If you have 2 huge luggage and many shopping bags, the room is gonna be very cramp.
Very reasonable price with a walkable distance to Shinjuku JR station.
Alots of restaurant surrounding the hotel.
Small supermarket or big department stores just near within 10mins.
It's clean, have individual washroom and free wifi.
When I told my japanese friend that i booked a double room in central Shinjuku (Kabuki-Cho) for 10250 yen/night (70€) he just couldn't believe me. For this price i was prepeared for a crap business hotel but felt finally relieved after stepping into Vintage. As asked in my booking email we got a non-smoking double room that was spotless clean and quiet, the bathroom as the room and the "double" bed were very small but it was ok for our 2 nights stay since we were in the room only for sleep at night. The location is perfect, just 8-10 mins walk from Shinjuku subway station and few mins from kabuki-cho and the shopping area. The hotel is surrounded by nooddles and other cheap japanese fastfood shop.
Just outside the centre of Shinjuku to the Northeast. Within walking distance to Shinjuku station. It's called Vintage for a reason! The decor is pretty ancient and the aircon barely functions.
Easily one of the most uncomfortable beds I've ever slept in. The rooms are pretty small even for Japan (just able to open my suitcase on the floor next to the bed, don't expect anywhere to put your clothes) and the bathroom is a caravan style, 1-mould design.
The staff are attentive and helpful and the price is very reasonable for Tokyo, which prevents it from getting 1/5.
