One minute walk from Shinjuku Gyoemmae metro station, or a ten minute walk from Shinjuku main train station. . Layout of room was maximized to full potential given its small size. . Very big TV for a such a small room. Breakfast wasn't included but well worth the money and fantastic coffee.

Thank you for your kind review and even more for your stay with us.
Our location is quite convenient to access from the nearest station. The closest one is "Shinjuku Gyoemmae Station"(Exit 1), and it takes 1 minutes by walking. In addition, It is 9 minutes by waking from JR Shinjuku Station(East-South Exit). The accesiblity is very convenient to get around Tokyo for sightseeing and business and so on. We have very confident that we got lots of reputations from our valued guests who had stayed.
If you have any opportunity to visit Tokyo, we hope to see you at our hotel again.
Thank you.

Probably the smallest hotel room I've stayed. However, its strategic location & room amneties/cleanliness makes up for it. 24-hours convenience stores and subway station a stone's throw away.

For Muslim travellers, there's a halal restaurant called Ramen Ouka which is within walking distance (advisable to make prior reservations).

APA HOTEL provides rooms simply compact, and it has been placing the emphasis on functionality. As we have informed each room has 11 square meters on the internet beforehand, our valued guests are able to aknowledge about the details. Thank you for your understanding.

This was my time staying at the APA Hotel Shinjuku. I’ve stayed in many hotels across Japan and this hotel rates very highly in the mid range.

I elected to stay in the smallest room possible to save money - 11m square - so I will not write anything negative about the room size. That said, for those people looking at staying in the smallest room, even though it had a queen bed, I honestly think that a room this size is adequate only for one person, not two - there is barely floor space for one suitcase, let alone two. The stats, then:

Good:

. Excellent location, right next to the best park in Tokyo. A five minute walk to the hubbub of Shinjuku itself, so when you walk out the front door you are not trampled by thousands of people.
. Also, easy to find on foot when stepping off the train - either a one minute walk from Shinjuku Gyoemmae metro station, or a ten minute walk from Shinjuku main train station.
. Layout of room was maximised to full potential given its small size.
. Very big tv for a such a small room.
. Modern, compact bathroom, finished to a very high standard. This also included heated wall mirror to counteract condensation after showering - I love this feature.
. Very pleasant restaurant ambience with excellent breakfast options - plenty to fill yourself up with before heading off for a day out in the city.

Not so good:

. Wifi is spotty.
. Pillows were very insubstantial - may be a Japanese thing - pillows were not big and puffy as a Westerner like myself would expect.

Would I stay here again?:

. Absolutely. But I’d go for a bigger room.

:)
