Posted Nov 16, 2017
Small room, had everything I needed, reasonable price, very good easy to reach location, for 2-3 nights in a city like Tokyo for single vacationer i would recommend.

Friendly staff, convenient location

Posted Jun 18, 2017
Pros: Cozy and convenient
Cons: Please clean/ change shower curtain
Location: Convenient store just around the corner, cafes nearby if you do not wish to have hotel meals; nice pavement without crowds of people!
Hotel staff is friendly and helpful, work with efficiency. Small cozy room but this is great for such budget, can do better as I saw a dirt in shower curtain... Convenient location, with "Family Mart" just a minute walking from hotel; few minutes to reach Metro station and Isetan Department Store. Recommended hotel to review a better directory for visitors, say which station exit/ direction to hotel/ tourists spots.

Good Value and Good Location in an Older Hotel

Posted Jun 5, 2017 on Hotels
This place was a really good value in a great location: just a short walk to Shinjuku Station, an even shorter walk to Shinjuku Sanchome Station, and just a block away from Shinjuku Nichome, Tokyo's gay neighborhood! Some may claim it's bad merely because it's an old business hotel, but it did its job well. PROS: -Wifi was good, a rarity in Japan, especially with older hotels like this -Bed was comfy and big enough for me (I'm 6'3"/190cm) -Quiet: Didn't see nor hear another guest while I was there (5 nights) save for the lobby plus street noise was minimal -Overall, room was clean and well-equipped especially for a business hotel in Japan. While not big my any means, I was able to easily store 2 large suitcases out of the way, put all my clothes in the room's dresser and closet, and there was even a little fridge. The bathroom had all the amenities of a typical Japanese hotel (full bath, movable shower head, shampoo, body wash, toothbrush, yukata, etc.) CONS: -You can't bring ANYONE to your room AT ALL. One main reason I got a hotel was for "privacy". I understand not having someone stay overnight, but having NO ONE in my room for any amount of time was ridiculous. -The hotel is two buildings and I was in the "annex" building. I had to take one elevator up to the second floor then walk a long hallway (with a low door that I hit my head on) to another elevator to access it. Needless to say, taking two large suitcases there was challenging, but I got used to it.

The hotel room and bathroom are very small, not much space to place our 2 luggages. As we are small size so it is still ok for us. Location is quite ok. Not far to Shinjuku main area and bus terminal. 2 staff were not friendly and not helpful. We wanted to borrow a knife to cut our apple but he rejected it. The next day another staff lent us.

Value for money small hotel in Shinjuku area

Posted Apr 8, 2017
Value for money, especially in Shinjuku area. 7 minutes to the nearest subway station and Shinjuku Royal Park. Japanese style room is clean. Reception staff is nice and helpful.

Hotel Tateshina is excellent

Posted Apr 3, 2017 on Hotels
The hotel is impeccably clean and the service is outstanding. It is about 15 mins of easy walk to the train station so we did a lot of walking. The room is small but adequate for 2 persons. Most of the staff only have limited English but we communicated by Google translate and it worked. The Western breakfast has the same menu every day but very fresh food. Wifi does not work in the room on the 5th floor, but works well in the lobby. I strongly recommended this hotel and will be back in the future

Great Hotel for the price

Posted Mar 18, 2017
Great location near Metro/Subway system. Close to bars and nightlife/ small eateries. Rooms small and tight. Cleaned well each day. TV and room facilities incredibly limited. Not a room if you need to relax in. But a good place if you're just going to use it for sleeping. Staff speak enough English to be passable.
