my Japan trip
very friendly staff on check in , small room but functional and very very clean , bed was incredibly comfortable , great restaurant underneath the hotel , room had an opening window which was great except area was very busy outside lots of noise from sirens even noisy with the window closed - but overall a great place to stay and would recommend staying at this hotel

APA hotel is a good place to stay if you manage some of your expectations. Location was great, just a few steps away from the metro station and walking distance to Shinjuku main area, the rooms are in excellent conditions et it’s very clean. The only downside is the size of the room. Very tiny!!! I am used to small space in Japan as I lived there for years but our room was very small - not even a cupboard to put our clothes - so we had to keep all our belongings in our luggage. Barely no room to walk around - and the bathroom was even worse. I have been to much more comfortable hotels in Japan - but for double the price... Also the bed was a little too soft for me... But overall a good experience!

Great hotel in Shinjuku
Service was excellent. Hotel staff very professional and polite. Assisted me with a troublesome DHL pickup. Excellent location close to many restaurants and convenience stores. Short walk to Subway and Korea Town, Kabuchiko. Short taxi ride to Shinjuku station and NeX

Great for a solo trip! Small but comfy. Good location and working facilities — only thing is the non smoking room smelled of smoke.

A bit funny about early check in and lift could take a while,but other than that a great place to stay in easy walking distance of all the restaurants and night life and right next to underground

Like that security on elevator and door on each floor.

Comfortable, Functional
Small room (as expected!) but functional, comfortable and clean. The window between the bathroom and bedroom was confusing, but at least there was a blind so our relationship retains some mystery still! Breakfast was pretty poor (comparison to other Japanese hotels, not expecting a Western style), and staff weren’t particularly helpful or happy to engage ... but if you’re looking for a functional, reasonable hotel in a central location, it’s a good bet.

It definitely is a small room, but it was fine for a few nights. Great location, beds are comfy, and bathroom is excellent.
