Pros: Very convenient location; very affordable rates; adequate customer service; the room was acceptably clean; mini fridge in room; air conditioner worked. Free Wifi. Cons: The hotel is run down. The room was small and cramped (triple room 3 adults). Noise from other rooms is bothersome. Wifi may not be secure as each floor's router is physically accessible to anyone...

My wife n I was here just for 1 night, before we head to Tendo next morning. This hotel near to Shin-Okubo station, walking distance. Facilities here quite okay. Enough to charge your devices, freshen up your body for your next journey. Shin-Okuno station is where you can get Muslim Halal food nearby.

We stayed on the fifth floor in the corner room and had a cool corner balcony. The room was very basic, only had 2 power outlets, so we had to unplug the tv to charge our electronic devices. Room was very small, it had AC, small fridge, TV and a desk. Not much desk space. Found it pretty weird that...

Yes the location is good and it is affordable but it doesn't worth it if compare with all the issues you will deal in this place: It smells pretty bad, we stay in the room next to reception...we find a cockrach running nextto the mattress in the floor where we have to sleep (cause they dont have beds) they dont...

It's all about the location with Hotel Empire in Shinjuku. It's about a two minute walk from the Yanamote line JR station which includes Harakuju, Shibuya, Ueno and Tokyo as stops and if you're using the JR pass you can easily visit each of these stations for free. As other reviewers have mentioned however that's where the list of positives...

I guess I had some bad luck on this trip to Japan seeing how many hotels let me down this time. The location of the hotel is A+ being 3 minutes from shin-okubo. That's about it for positive things. The rooms have nothing to do with the pictures, they are small and run down. The beds are terribly uncomfortable to...

If you are looking to relax and have a wonderful day at your hotel, do not come here. I'm giving this hotel 4 stars not because it's a 4 star hotel but it's perfect for someone like me that is travelling alone. It is only 2 blocks from Shin-okubo station which has trains that can pretty much take you anywhere....

Stayed here a few weeks ago and unfortunately of all the hotels and places we stayed on our trip, this was our least favourite. Location is fantastic if you want to get about in the general Shinjuku-Shibuya area, or even any other spot around the Yamanote line (super close to the station and Shinjuku 1 stop away) and is also...

On arrival, 5/14 paid for room to accommodate 3 adults, no coffee/tea maker, 1 empty cup left in fridge, had to go to reception for water, bathroom smelled disgusting, staff did not clean, but sprayed air-refresher after complaints, smelled of sewage coming through pipes, eventually after 2 nights they allowed us to change rooms, when I explained that methane gas...

This hotel is very close to Shin-Okubo station on the JR Yamanote Line. The instructions of how to get to the hotel from the station are exact and it was very easy to find. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful and could speak some English. Yes, as others have said the rooms are small but so are a lot of...
