The hotel is about 5 mins walk away from JR Shinjuku station (South exit). The Narita Express (fastest way to get from airport to city centre.hotel) stops at Shinjuku station from the airport so it's extremely convenient. Many shopping malls/departmental stores just 10 mins walk away. Many restaurants/ramen shops open till late around Kabukicho - Shinjuku's red light district.

The rooms are decently sized for Tokyo hotels and very clean. As the hotel is on top of a business building, you get a great view from the rooms. Daily newspaper is hung on your door every morning. The daily breakfast (served from 6:30-10am) served at Tribeks has a good variety of options. Try a bowl of the cornflakes! Usually hotel breakfast cornflakes are soft from being left out too long every morning, but these are extremely crispy!

The hotel only has a few English channels (I remember it was only the CNN and BBC) and you need to pay for all the movies. They have a free ice machine on every floor of the hotel.

Check-in was extremely efficient, only took 5 mins and we were up in our room already. We requested a non-smoking double room on a higher floor and they kindly gave us a room on the 34th floor (highest floor is 35th floor). The concierge is very helpful, searching for our shops/restaurants online and printing out the maps for us so we don't get lost. Highly recommend you ask for maps/directions from the Concierge before heading out as the road names and numbers won't make much sense. Remember to have the tel no. of the shop/restaurant with you so you can call for assistance if you get hopelessly lost. Also recommend you buy your return ticket on the Narita Express from Shinjuku Station in advance (you can buy train tickets days in advance) so you don't have to queue and up, find the correct platform and end up missing your train (they are extremely prompt!).

The hotel is located near the train station, and is actually the top half of an apartment building. Very close to major attractions, shopping centres, ATMs (international ATMs are extremely rare, and the hotel had one just behind it!), and food.

The service was excellent. The staff were friendly and helpful with directions, translations, and special requests. The room was very comfortable, and the restaurants inside the hotel were exceptional and had wonderful views of the city. There is also a small convenience store inside the hotel, run by two very friendly women, which stays open late if you're not in the mood for a fancy restaurant meal.

Highly Recommended!

If you're a foodie and this hotel is within your budget, this is your place to stay.

First, the basics:
Location: A+ It's right next to one of the main train/subway stations
Room: Large (for Japan), and with a view

Now for the food: It's right across from Krispy Kreme,where they give free samples (a whole donut!) if you can bear to wait in line which can be a 1 hr wait.

Across from the hotel is Tajima Times Square ,this shopping mall that has many options of food on the top 2 floors. The best kobe place (Imahan), the best dumpling place (Din Tai Foong), basically the mall has a lot of upscale restaurants with a huge variety --Italian, French, Chinese, you-name-it. It's great when you've come back from touring Tokyo, and you don't want to go anywhere, but you still want to eat well -- well good food can be had right across the walkway.

Just returned from Xmas in Tokyo .My wife and I have visted our son and his wife a few times. We have stayed in some good hotels but for convenience (re travel) this is definitely the best.
Literally 3 minutes from Shinjuku station it is perfect for getting quickly to anywhere in Tokyo.
We got the Narita Express from the airport and found getting to the hotel very easy.
Make sure you exit at the correct exit from the station ( South Terrace Exit) as with it being such a huge station you can easily get disorientated.. A young mn on Flikr has done all the work for you so if you click on his link then he spells out exactly how to get to the hotel !

The staff are friendly and very helpful. There was a good selection of food at breakfast ( when I asked for a fried egg a member of staff brought me one to the table !). We had dinner twice ( in Tribeks) and thought the meals were very good.
Shop around for a good deal ( I booked with Asiarooms which was a lot cheaper than the other sites and breakfast was included). The cheapest flights were with Finnair.
Will almost certainly stay at this hotel again when we visit next Xmas.

Excellent position only a few minutes walk to Shinjuku Station. Although a little expensive it was worth it as a nice and comfortable way to finish up our 4 week Japan tour. The room was very comfortable and a good size with all expected amenities. The reception always had people who spoke excellent English and are very willing to help (but then again.. that's just the Japanese way). There is a great shopping complex (MASSIVE!) a few minutes walk away for the girls across the train line.
Great views as the hotel starts at the 20 or 40 something floor.

30min walk to Park Hyatt Hotel (from "Lost in Translation"). Definitely, definitely take the time to go here (for sunset) and have a drink or (if you got the cash) eat at the restaurant on the top floor. Even to just see the sunset over Mt Fuji is enough to make the effort worthy.

As with all Japanese Hotels... make sure u ask for a Non-Smoking room as smoking is very prolific in Japan where people still smoke in restaurants and if your a non smoker or reformed smoker ........................ it can be very hard to cope!
