    This was our first stay in Tokyo, and we were very pleasantly surprised by the value in this gem of a hotel. The room, as expected was a bit cramped when compared to US standards, however, we were comfortable for the nights we stayed. We did not find the beds to be as hard as many Asian travellers indicate they are.

    The location is fantastic - there is an entry to one the train lines right outside of the exit of the hotel, and other lines (the one we took more often) were 2 blocks away. This station accommodates 1.3 million people per day - it is huge - and you can connect to any form of transportation from here - subways, buses, and even the Narita Express to the airport.

    In addition to the proximity of travel options, the hotel is steps away from hundreds of shops, restaurants (Local as well as the Golden Arches and Burger King) and department stores which are actually the large buildings that anchor the edges of the station. 7-11 style stores are also within easy walking distance to buy any items you may have forgotten or to pick up a bottle of wine for your room ;)

    The staff was very friendly and had enough knowledge of the English language to be of any assistance that we needed as far as giving us guide maps, showing us how to get to our desired destinations, and providing some good recommendations for eateries.

    The had a currency exchange desk downstairs that was convenient and provided a fair rate as we compared around town later.

    This was one of the lesser priced hotels that I found in Tokyo and I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality and value we received.

    They have a fantastic sky bar lounge upstairs which provided beautiful evening views of the lights of all the surrounding sky rises and shops. (Beware however that they may charge a cover charge...we were there late in the evening and were surprised by this, since we were hotel guests. But maybe the charge is only in effect at night).

    They also have a few menu items available in this top-floor lounge. But a word of advice to first-time travellers to Asia...when they say something on the menu is chicken, do not ASSUME they mean cleaned white chicken breast...it could be chicken liver, or chicken with fatty skin and joints and cartilage...our chicken dish we ordered up at the top-floor lounge was not what we were expecting....but that is just part of the gastro-cultural differences as we learned throughout our weeks in Asia.

    Overall, I would highly recommend a stay at the Shinjuku Price hotel as a home-base for any of your Tokyo ventures.

Me, it was my responsibility to "suck up and retain" as much I could from the japanese lessons in order to communicate effectively, and this symbiotic relationship is working very well - we have no idea how we will cope in Barcelona though as we left no time (or brain space on my part) to learn even one word of spanish! hahaha so this will be a lot of fun - pointing and hand gesturing till they get sore!
