Even though this hotel is in Shinjuku which is known as a busy area, its location is somehow isolated from the noise around, and the place is very calm and relaxing.

I recommend getting a suite room with a city view - the room is ryokan style with huge windows and amazing panorama.

Onsen here is just great - we were visiting the hot tubs on a rooftop at the moment of a snowfall. It was unforgettable.

The hotel is built with amazing attention to details. Great tea and a teaditional teapot in the room, kimono instead of a standard robe, and even traditional socks and shoes! Loved it.

I would recommend to stay here at least for a rooftop onsen experience!

We absolutely loved our stay at the Onsen Ryokan Yeun Shinjuku. We arrived early in the morning and had no problems storing our suitcases whilst we went exploring. The minute we walked in we felt relaxed, leaving all the hustle and bustle behind us, the reception area itself is gloriously zen and the staff were so lovely and helpful. Whilst not exactly in the heart of Shinjuku it was around 15 minute walk to Shinjuku Station, 10 minutes walk to Golden Gai and even less to the funky bars and restaurants around the Suehirotei theatre. We absolutely loved our stay, had our first onsen which was an experience (great view!) and slept like logs after sightseeing all day. A special mention to the pillows, am not sure what you put in them (felt like a layer of massage beads) but am definitely going to try and source one in Sydney.

We stayed in a standard twin which was small, but what we expected so no surprises and just meant we had to be organised with a big case each. As an aside I used packing cells for the first time and were literally a Godsend (tops in one, dresses & pants in another, makes living in a small space so easy as you don't have to be rummaging in your case every day).

Would definitely recommend this hotel to those wanting an authentic experience, it was nice to really feel like we were in Japan and not just another generic hotel.

Tokyo has left us wanting more so am sure we'll be back and would definitely stay here again and recommend to others. Keep up the great work!

Traditional style with modern facilities - this hotel really stood out amongst the many generic business hotels that had similar pricing.

After a day walking miles around Tokyo this hotel was a calming place to return to. It’s around a 15 minute walk from the main Shinjuku area which didn’t both me (I needed to walk off all of the amazing food I was eating) but might be an issue for others. The room while small had all I needed and I slept really well every night although I think 2 in a small double would be too cosy.

The onsen on the roof was fabulous - there is nothing like sitting in a hot open air bath when it’s cold outside and taking in the Tokyo skyline view.

One thing that was frustrating was that the room was too hot and it’s not possible to turn the temperature down. Other than that a great stay and would recommend.

It was a small room, typical of Tokyo, but its modern, clean and zen-like furnishings made for a comfortable stay at Onsen Ryokan Yuen for the 2 nights we were there in our twin room. Bed was comfortable, toilets were fancy (automatic flushing!) and showers in the room were good.

It's about a 12 minute walk to the heart of Shinjuku and the train station, but not a big deal at all when you've got a nice hotel to come back to at the end of the night.

There's a 7-eleven just across the road outside the hotel and a supermarket just a few minutes down the road. Very convenient!

We did not try the breakfast and unfortunately didn't get to try the other amenities of the hotel such as the onsen either. Perhaps for next time!

We spent three nights in this hotel while visiting Tokyo. Our room was tiny, it barely had room for the futon they added to the room to accommodate a third adult. Our biggest issue with the room though was the reverse half wall on the window side of the wall. It was at the perfect height to hit your head on every time you stood up. It seemed to us like the design of the room would have been better just to put a full size window in.
Regardless of the knots on our heads, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel is beautiful. I especially enjoyed watching the sun set from the outdoor onsen.
We ate one dinner and one breakfast at the hotel, and both were very good. We did the fixed price menu for dinner and were stuffed with excellent food. Breakfast was good too, it just didn’t have the variety of the dinner.

We loved everything about this hotel and hated to leave. The minute we walked into the serene lobby and listened to the gentle music, we knew we had made a magnificent choice. Our room was small but beautifully appointed. The outdoor rooftop onsen with spectacular view of the Tokyo skyline became our nightly ritual. We enjoyed the free popsicles in the onsen lounge afterward. Don't miss the traditional breakfast in their dining room and consider wearing the hotel's provided robe as your breakfast attire. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Tokyo. This has become our new standard for hotel excellence. I can't wait to return someday.

I liked to much relaxing atmosphere!
We also appreciate that all the staff speaked english, so it was very easy to understand the rules inside the ryokan!
Also, it's not a problem if you have tattoes because inside there are 3 private onsen and when you are inside one of this, nobody else can enter!
In the end, The cuisine was so exquisite!
Suggestion for every guest: don't bring anything with you! Inside the ryokan you will found everything you need!
From tootbrush to hairdryer and all kind of stuff. You will stay all day with the yukata that you will find into the ryokan. You can leave your luggage in your car, nobody will take it and in this way you won't ruin the
precious tatami. After all, is a place where you will strip yourself of everything!

Good basic budget hotel built 5 years ago. Well situated 8 minutes walk from Shinjuku station. The onsen is good. Hotel is clean, efficient, with pleasant staff, though their proficiency in English is weak, surprising since most clients seem to be English speakers. This hotel is not suitable for anyone who has mobility or knee & back problems. Very low beds, basin, seating, absolutely no comfortable chairs or lounges anywhere in the hotel. Room very small with no cupboards, nowhere to place suitcases, and I would argue too small for 2 people, though I think I got the smallest type of room (maybe 145 sqft). Lighting poor - no reading light over beds; all downlighters with narrow beams, so dark over the mirrors, not great for doing makeup or shaving. Only 2 lifts. At busy times you can wait 8-10 minutes as the lift stops at each of the 18 floors. All design faults that could so easily have been avoided. I would not stay here again. I would pay more for more comfort.

The hotel is not really a ryokan. It is a fairly large hotel without the personal attention and intimate feel of a ryokan. The room was tiny and unfortunately I ended up with a 4th floor room that looked over the roof and it felt very claustrophobic. I'd recommend high floor rooms. The room was comfortable but cramped. The top floor hot bath was lovely (indoor and outdoor) but should not be called an onsen, rather it is a hot bath. It was very clean and enjoyable with a lovely view. The hotel provides yukata, as well as water bottles to use during your stay. The breakfast was nice.

We were in Tokyo just for 22 hours and stayed at the Yuen Shinjuku. It was a great experience. At checkin they helped with our tour guide for the next day. They explained the Onsen process. The room was great a ground futon type of bed very comforatble. We had a king/Queen. No closet space but had a place to hang some clothes. Its small but that is expected. Great toilet with bidet, small bathtub? Really not usable except for small kids and a shower. Nice view with blackout curtains.
The Onsen was nice and we used it in the evening. It was really an experience especially the outdoor pool as the night was cool and crisp. They supplied Kimono, waist tie, instructions on how to use it, and socks. I bought an extra at front desk for Y8000 to have a home.
We were unable to eat at the resturant in the morning. First hotel in years that I was not able to eat there. Apparently you need RESERVATIONS to eat at the resturant and they sell out. We went down 1/2 block to the Toyko Business Hotel and they have a buffet for Y1000.
The Hotel and Onsen were very busy mainly with Japanese visitors so its a real Onsen experience.
The Hotel was reasonable as the dollar was strong we paid about US$165. I would highly recommend this but make reservations at the resturant ahead of time.

I'd agree with everything Eleanor C has written above. However, if it sounds like a bit of a mission and you haven't been to Japan before, this is a rare occasion I'd recommend shelling out for a taxi. The traffic won't be bad after 10:30pm.

I think they are currently only open until September. So 2 more months and they should be available.
