This is my third time staying in this hotel because of the very accessible location and availability of Halal food. They now have a new halal chicken ramen which is nice but sells out quick. My only negative experience was some of the tv channels didn't have a smooth transmission and keeps getting cut. I'm not sure if it is the tv as I was able to view all the channels smoothly in the rooms I was in previously. It was the first time I'm staying this hotel during a typhoon and I'm impressed that it was able to withstand Typhoon Hagibis with electricity and water still available after it passed. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and will come back again whenever I visit Tokyo.
Sakura hotel is nice and clean. It has a good location in cozy neighborhoods. The staff is helpful and professional. The rooms are very small, but work. A simple breakfast is included. The hotel serves food and has a furnished courtyard adjacent to the entrance.
This is my second time to stay in this hotel because of easy of accessibility to hotel location and the price is competitive with good service. The hotel staff is also very friendly. I surely stay in this hotel in the next chance.
Love this hotel, the staff is really friendly and helpful. the location is perfect, 1 minute away from the train station. the room is a little bit small but everything inside the room was excellent. thank you Sakura Hotel, i will surely comeback.
Located 2 stations away from the centre Shinjuku. Nearby convenience stores and supermarket and 7-11. Friendly staffs and knowledgeable. Provide free coffee and bread for breakfast (4:30-11am). Room is small, maximum 2 people can fit in. Bed is comfy(firm).
We started this trip by this hotel very close to the metro. Small Japanese room with sufficient comfort but watch out for large suitcases! Simple breakfast. Possibility to eat also on site. Friendly welcome. If you want to be disoriented, this is an address to have.
To start of, Sakura Hatagaya located just a minute from the subway station. Having near the station made traveling throughout Tokyo very easy. There are many eateries and convenient stores nearby. Surprisingly their cafe that open 24 hours served tasty foods with reasonable prices. However, their triple room that we booked really need to be refurbished. And they have the smallest lift with a pink carpet pasted on the wall of the lift. Perhaps they were looking for the fastest and cheapest option to modernize the lift. Not all of the staffs were friendly and it was a surprise to us. It really depend on who you meet. If you really need a hotel that near to a station with many eateries around, this is the place to consider but nothing else. With their price range and limited amenities, room that need refurbished, there are some place better.
If you're looking for that final push to book this place. This is it! As a solo female traveller, I'm not the biggest fan of sharing rooms because I don't like the pressure of always being mindful of my stuff spread out in the room--for that, I always opt for getting my own room. This hotel has the best rates for solo traveling that I saw for Tokyo. So let's talk about things I love about this place. 1. Cost This place is affordable, of the many locations I checked, this is one of the most affordable ones. 2. Location The location is quiet and not on the main road which is great because it's perfect for your shut-eye. But it still remains very accessible to train stations, it's 3 minutes away from Hatagaya Station which is just two stations away from Shinjuku which means cheap train fares despite not being covered by the subway pass. It is also just 15 minutes away from the train station that is covered by the subway pass. 3. Access to Food and Stores Nearby The vicinity is also with a lot of convenience stores, hole-in-the-walls, drugstores, and restaurants. But, you need not worry about that because the hotel itself has a 24-hour cafe that is reasonably-priced. 4. Rooms The rooms are great. They're not the most spacious but I think that's the norm in Tokyo. The entrance might seem underwhelming if you're tall, but the ceilings are higher inside, I promise. :) The room is equipped with all the basic necessities you'll need, but the hotel offers more free rental equipment for other things you might need. I find that smart and considerate! Plus, I got my own room which is all that I really look for. That's a plus, yes, given most accommodations I found in the same price range has shared bathrooms. I wanna address a review I read that the toilet stinks, it's not true for me. If you smell something, just close the toilet lid and you should be good. They also offer deodorizers and humidifiers for free, if you ever encounter it. I went in the summer and their air-conditioning is perfect! 5. Breakfast The free breakfast is bread, juice, coffee, tea, and soup. Though it's the same everyday variation comes in the jams, juice flavor, and soup. But the highlight of this is the duration, they start early and end really late which is perfect if you need to leave early or just want to sleep longer and wake up late. 6. WiFi and Other Amenities WiFi is great! It's reliable in all locations. Our Muslim friends are also considered as there is a prayer room available. :) 7. Staff This, I think is the gem of the place. For Non-Japanese, they speak and understand English! Great customer service in Japan is common, but Sakura Hotel Hatagay takes it to the next level. First off, thank you to the staff for the little things: a. Letting me get cold water in my water bottle from the bar every morning and every night b. Helping me with my questions about getting around and how to use my subway passes together with the IC Cards c. Giving me band-aids; this seems like a little think but I bruised myself and just needed one band-aid, buying a whole box in the drugstore seemed wasteful as I only needed one but the staff (maybe Hako, the one in your Instagram account photos) gave me two. I appreciate that very much! Most especially, I stumbled upon an issue in Tokyo and they went above and beyond to help me. Short of it is, I got left behind by my overnight bus to Osaka due to misinformation from the person who booked me. I was so tired that night, feeling lost and overwhelmed somewhere in Tokyo Station. I called the hotel and everything started to just be too much for me and started crying on the phone whilst talking to the Assistant Manager of the Hotel. I was asking them for help to contact the bus company and they were more than happy to do it for me. Filled with anxiety on the phone, they have calmed me down and offered to go back to the hotel and sort the entire thing out. They even went ahead and offered me a discounted room for the night. But since I planned to leave in the morning, they offered for me to just stay in the cafe since it's open for 24 hours. When I got to the hotel, they could not be any more accommodating and friendly towards my stressed self. They helped me just settle in the cafe with my laptop and even as far as booking a new ticket to Osaka, helping me find the cheapest rates online. That was so stressful for me as someone traveling alone, but their help made it all okay for me. I contemplated leaving the next night but they also gave me tips that there is a typhoon coming and leaving soon is a wiser decision. True enough, when I got to Osaka, a typhoon hit Tokyo which would have stranded me in Tokyo even further. To Sakura Hotel Hatagaya, thank you to the Assistant Manager who helped me and his staff on the night of September 7, 2019. I got your business cards but have not had the chance to unpack to look for them (I apologize), but I wanted to express my utmost gratitude towards your team in Hatagaya! You made my Japan experience memorable and I cannot wait to come back.
Good hotel at a good location near Shinjuku station, helpful staff and a lovely "smaller" neighborhood. Me second time here, and for the price and location I really recommend it. Regular double room was a little small for 2 tall europeans with luggage for 2 weeks, corner double is much better.
Not fancy, but great staff, great location, and despite being a tad small it's really quite cozy and nice. We loved it, and I came back and stayed again and had just as nice an experience. Cafe has some nice vegetarian and halal options.
