In a big crowd of people we had to organise our connecting train to Shinjuku, the suburb we were staying at. Not the …

TravelPod Member ReviewsBest Western Shinjuku ASTINA Hotel Tokyo
As far as location goes- this is a great hotel. 10 minutes walk to Shinjuku Station and right in the heart of Kabukicho. Rooms were comfortable and quite spacious by Japanese standards. Breakfast buffet was reasonable and the facilities excellent. The only fault - and this is not a facilities excellent. The only fault - and this is not a small issue - was that the staff were less than friendly and helpful (actually one particular staff member was extremely rude when we tried to arrrange to have our luggage sent from Tokyo to Kyoto) - however, overall a very convenient and well-priced place to stay to experience Tokyo.
