Pros and Cons
Great location. Near Shin-Okubo station, cheap eats and in Shinjuku! Would stay again. The light over our bed went out. We forgot to tell them. When we got home that night, it was fixed! Realize this is Japan, so rooms are Japan's standards not Western-size. Desk has limited English so use Goggle for directions. When arriving, recommend avoiding Shinjuku station, just too busy. Plus Shin Okubo is closer.

Ok for the price
The hotel is easy to reach, whoever is at the desk is very kind. Problems: needs repainting and renovation (room), we set the card “pls make the room” at 9:30 one day and once we came back in the evening it was not done. In the hard interaction (thanks google translation) we understood the room service is only in the morning. They saw a “don’t disturb” and then mever checked. The toothbrush etc are rarely given

The wifi was quite slow and not that stable, so ended up having to use my pocket wifi the whole time. Really close to the train station yet at a pretty quiet street which makes it nice. Only had one wall plug which was kind of inconvenient.

So and so but....
The hotel is closed to rail transportation station, Walking about 10 - 15 minutes to the great Shinjuku terminal. The reception can speak English. The room is just so and so but the bathroom is very small and transmitting bad odor.
