Summary

It was very satisfied with my stay at this hotel. It is close to Shinjuku Station and downtown, so it is convenient for shopping and dining in Shinjuku. The room has a desk and Wi-Fi, so I was able to work in the room. The room was quiet and I was able to sleep peacefully at night. I would like to stay here again myself, but also recommend this hotel to other people.
