Great location for Shinjuku!
The location of the hotel is great for exploring Shinjuku, as well as about 10 min walk north of the main station. Great value for the money and I would highly recommend if you plan to go explore Tokyo while spending minimal time at the hotel.
Pillows were thin and uncomfortable, other than that and being on the smaller side, this was a great hotel choice.
Not the best
No seating in the lobby for waiting, cleaning staff accidentally threw out my dirty laundry and the hotel would not reimburse me. Location is far from Shinjuku Station not the best location.
First time in Japan with my husband and the hotel
First, let me start with the location. I will say it is friendly for all ages 18 and up. I include even seniors because the location really does have it all! However, it is really close and somewhat in the middle of their redlight district and Although I know this can sound problematic or even too crazy, it really isnt because all of it is kept away from the streets. You only know what the places are based on the wording of the advertisement outside such as "thai special massage." All funny though even for us as a married couple. You are only two blocks (5min walk if you are slow and not from the city like we were) from the Shinjuku train station and this was solid gold for us to get around even with our luggage because in case you have not heard, Taxis are pricey!! Another great thing about the location is the food! We are foodies and we love bargains and high end so we can try it all!!! I also do not eat fish and my husband loves his sushi and again, they have it all! From 1,000 yen lunches to nice steak dinners in which we spent up to 9,000 yen but we also ordered a couple rounds of beer and limited this kind of spending to only every other night. Other than that they have reasonable 3,000 yen dinners for two and we even had steak tacos at this rate!! As for the staff, they answered all the million questions we had even when it was reallllly busy during check in hours. They were all very patient! Our package did not include breakfast but the hotel is located in front of a family mart and across the street from a 7-11 (with an ATM) and in case you did not hear in places like reddit, some people come here for food from these places alone! We usually picked up sandwiches or hotcase items with drinks for under 1,000yen in total for two of us! And went about our day. The hotel people clean the room everyday, restock toilettries in the bathrooms daily, and leave you water bottles daily as well as fresh towels. Very very clean people and yes you might be culture shocked to learn the square footage is veryyyy small but two of us fit just fine and comfortably and come on, if you are going to japan do your research! Anywhere you stay will have the same issue with squarefootage because this country has one of the most expensive realstate value, meaning this culture often downsizes in space because larger does not neccesarily mean better. I wish there were more i could say and although I could it really means you should choose APA at Kabukichu!
I have nothing I could possibly complain about. I mean wour airplane landed 6 hrs ago and I am already leaving a review.
