Stayed 4 nights in Sep 2017. Easy walk from Shinjuku station. Take west exit, you will be walking downhill to the first main street. You will see hotel to the left on the other side. Didn't use hotel restaurant but ate at McDonald's for breakfast (close by and cheap) and lots of Japanese restaurants in the streets behind the hotel. Conveyor belt sushi across the road. Yes, room is small by North American standards but typical of Japanese. I've been in smaller so found it very acceptable. The beauty is in the amenities provided in such a small space, including fridge, kettle, shelving unit, TV, flashlight for emergencies etc. I had a twin room and when making the reservation, I asked for extra pillows as I often find you only get one small pillow in Japan. To my surprise, there were 2 pillows on each bed and an extra one placed at the foot of one of the beds! A helpful tip if trying to watch TV in English: the only english channel is BBC but when I turned on the TV it was dubbed into Japanese. After playing with the remote for awhile, I found a button on the bottom right that opened a menu on the TV in the top left corner. It was in Japanese but when I scrolled through the 3 choices, one of them turned off the dubbing so I could listen in the original English. One small annoyance was no wastebasket in the washroom. I used a small plastic shopping bag and housekeeping emptied it out and left it for me to reuse each day. We had to take Shinkansen to Kyoto and I was concerned about how much luggage we had. What I discovered is that in Japan, most people have their luggage shipped from one hotel to the next! I talked to the IBIS front desk clerk the night before we were to leave and he was very helpful with this, taking down my reservation information for Kyoto, then calling the hotel to confirm my reservation and the address. He prepared all the paperwork and so when we went to check-out in the morning, we left 4 suitcases with them and headed off to the train station with just overnight bags. Our luggage arrived at our Kyoto hotel the next day around noon. And all for approx Y6000!! It explains why I never saw people at the train station with big bags. Overall, I quite enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would recommend it.
