Standard businessman hotel

Would recommend Thu, Jul 24, 2014
Getting a hotel room for less than $100 per night is not easy in Tokyo, but this deal was too good to pass up. The staff was friendly and most of all the room was clean. It was tiny, but enough for one person to get by. Close enough to restaurants and the subway/train system to get where you need to.

A paranoid hotel in Japan

Would not recommend Tue, Apr 29, 2014
The weird thing about this hotel is that they require you to return the key to the desk whenever you go out. Not being trusted by the staff was a weird feeling for Japan. They will also not allow any visitors to the rooms. The rooms themselves are cubicle style with a single faucet for both shower and sink. The hotel was clean but a little less so for a Japanese hotel. On golden week the price for the room was quite ridiculous.

A great price in a great location

Would recommend Mon, Aug 6, 2012
I selected Hotel Sunlite Shinjuku after doing some research on hotels in the Shinjuku or Shibuya districts. I had a 24 hour layover en route to Mongolia and did not desire to spend it in the airport. I booked a single room here, and took the JR Express train from Narita (I highly recommend buying the combined Suica/N'ex card at the airport if you are a foreigner). The deal can't be beat, but be warned, the lines can take a long time. But, back to the hotel---a 10-20 minute walk from the Shinjuku JR Express station. The time varies based on how crowded it is, especially if you are pulling luggage with you. The directions provided by the hotel left something to be desired, but I was able to navigate my way there after locating some landmarks/large stores and using my middle school Japanese to ask for directions. The hotel staff was friendly and spoke English well. I felt the room was on the large side of Tokyo-sized and had the amenities needed for a comfortable night (or several). For the price, I cannot make any complaints on the hotel. The location was great at less than a 5 minute walk and you were in the thick of Shinjuku nightlife. I'm actually glad it wasn't closer otherwise it probably would have been too noisy to sleep. It was very close to restaurants, bars, shopping, many transportation options and much more. It is also one block away from the Hanazono Shinto Shrine. For a budget traveler looking for a hotel room in one of the liveliest districts inside Tokyo proper for under $100, I 100% recommend this hotel.

Good hotel for the price

Would not recommend Tue, Jun 26, 2012
A lot of hotels in Tokyo are very expensive so this hotel was good for our budget. The location was decent with the nearest subway station at about a 5 minute walk. However, the service was okay and the walls were very thin. We had the TV on at a normal volume and we got a phone call from the front saying that we are being too loud.

very good location

Would recommend Sat, Oct 1, 2011
Convenient location right next to Shinjuku-sanchome station, and not too far from Shinjuku station. Room was fine, kind of worn/dated, but ok. Good (wired) internet connection in room. Staff was friendly and spoke enough English to make for an easy check in and out. I was in the annex with a room facing the alley/street between the main hotel and the annex and street noise was not a problem. Good location for the price.

long walk from Shinjuku station

Would not recommend Sun, Dec 5, 2010
We, three adults and one 7 years old traveled in Japan and decided to find a hotel that is easy for us to get to the airport the next morning from Shinjuku Station. We reserved two none-smoking rooms; they put us in different floors, also told us only one none-smoking available for us. They didn't even try AT ALL to re-arrange for us when we asked nicely . We thought this was the worst service we had ever encountered during our Japan stays. Japanese are usually friendly and helpful. Moreover, this hotel is way far from walking to the main Shinjuku station, about 20 to 30 mins walk. We will go back to Star Hotel next time, their staff and location are most ideal!

Shopping hint

Shopping is Ok in this area, but if you want to get to the Shinjuku main station, this hotel is not ideal.

actually the hotel not in SHINJUKU but SHINJUKU Sanchome Station via metro line "Marunouchi" and out of the exit "E1", which differs from the Toei-Line Station "Oedo-E1". front staff can speak english and were helpful. both check in and out were smooth.

Value in Shinjuku

Would recommend Sun, Oct 3, 2010
I frequently travel to Japan and usually stay a night in Shinjuku on arrival and departure to give easy access to the NEX express to Narita. The prices of my usual hotels were high during my last visit so decided to try the Sunlite which was less than half the price of the alternatves. And it was perfectly adequate. The usual small room of course but then all hotels in Tokyo are the same unless you spend significantly more money. The staff were efficient and friendly, the the bed was comfortable and there as free internet in the room. Great value for money.

Time saver

It can be a fairly long crowded walk from Shinjuku station if you have luggage. There is a metro exit close to the hotel with a tunnel taking all the way to the JR lines. Use it to avoid the crowds.

Sunlilte Shinjuku - Good Value

Would recommend Tue, Mar 16, 2010
If you are looking for a hotel primarily as a place to sleep and in a convenient location, the Shinjuku Sunlite is a very good value. It is a short walk from Shinjuku station. The rooms are utilitarian with limited amenities, but they are clean and quiet. The front desk staff are very helpful. I plan to return to this hotel for my next trip.

Money saver

Use the excellent Tokyo subway and rail system for your transportation needs. Get a day or week pass which will save a good deal of money and fumbling for change.
