Hotel Sunroute Higashi Shinjuku

Pros: Comfortable rooms, close to all major transport systems, close to major shopping district in Shinjuku and cheap breakfast in attached restaurant,
Cons: For the price we paid for our room we were most impressed. If you want bigger or better expect to pay at least 3 times more a night.
Location: See above.
This Hotel is very well placed in Tokyo being only 50 metres from a major subway station. It is about a 15 minute walk to Shinjuku which is a major hub for shopping and also the Japanese Railway (JR) line for the bullet train (Shinkansen) to anywhere in Japan. Although the single rooms are small compared to Australia they were very adequate and comfortable and very well priced through Wotif. The hotel is comfortable and the restaurant attached serves a breakfast buffet for a very reasonable rate. There are numerous small restaurants within 10 minutes walk where you can get traditional Japanese food for lunch or dinner at very reasonable prices. (You have to get used to the fact that most restaurants have smokers in them so that is definitely a shock compared with Australia.) We stayed 9 nights at this hotel and used it as a good place to visit most of the Tokyo area. We also spent one day near Mt Fuji and one day at a Temple town near the sea. I would recommend this hotel if you are interested in a great location for viewing Tokyo. Note that the airport is about 1 1/2 to 2 hours from the hotel so I would recommend organising a shuttle service both ways before you leave Australia because Taxis are very expensive and catching the Train and Subway with luggage is very difficult as lifts in the subways are few and far between and you would get lost trying to get to the Hotel. It took us at least 3 days to work out the subway system!!

Great value hotel for a Tokyo stay

Pros: Comfortable bed, quiet, amenities as required, great location
Cons: All good.
Location: Take a day trip to Mt.Takao. Only 1 hour away on the Keio line and a scenic 599m elevated hike. Enjoy the local food and beer.
Travelling solo Sunroute is the perfect accommodation, close enough to everything, trains, food, convenience stores, city centre, but also far enough away to avoid all the excess noise of Shinjuku. Rooms are comfortable, practical and have all that you need for a stay. Obviously this is not the hotel you want to stay in your room all day, but as a place to rest, sleep and base yourself in Tokyo it is ideal. Would definitely stay there again, but not perhaps with the rest of the family.

Nice hotel, great location.

Pros: Location.
Cons: Bathrooms a little cleaner.
Location: Perfect location next to train stations which made it really easy to get around other places in Tokyo. Harajuku and Shibuya especially close by train.
This hotel is in the perfect location if staying in Tokyo. I was told about this hotel and that Shinjuku was a great area to stay in and it did not disappoint. All of the hotel staff were very helpful and warm (as all Japanese people are). They lent me a phone charger for the 4 days I was there and even returned the money I had to pay for a key that I thought I had lost when they later found it. They were all very helpful and would even communicate with eachother when I would ask them every morning how to get to the places my family and I wanted to see. Thank you very much for everything. The hotel is located rightnext door to the train station which makes is so convenient to get to other areas. Harajuku and Shibuya are super close via train. For just using the hotel to sleep in (as we spent most of our time out and about) this is a great place to stay.

Right ontop of Subway

Excellant, right ontop of Subway. Close to all the sights. Small, clean room that when you're in Tokyo you only need for sleep. Hotel staff were very friendly.

Customer service has not been invented.

There are cheaper places to be if all you want is a room. No customer service. Response to everything is go do it yourself. No limousine bus despite the website saying there is one to the hotel. Feel like I've been lied to.
