Went here last December. The Hotel is near clubs in Shinjuku, convenience to stay a night here if you dont have train to go back home. Cozy and it has everything you need. The breakfast downstair was limited choice but good.
We canvassed friends “where to stay in Tokyo?” Their universal opinion was “Shinjuku”. So, off we went to research a suitable hotel for our seven day stay. Tokyo is expensive, but we found Premier Hotel Cabin well priced at $AUD 110 a day plus it is in an excellent location with short walks to train transport, bars, cafes and restaurants. Another plus is that nearby streets are free from cars after dark – a pedestrian’s paradise, so to speak. The hotel is reasonably modern and has good facilities in rooms; coffee and tea making facilities, refrigerator, toiletries supplied, telephone and free Wi-Fi. The rooms are pretty tiny by our standards, but hey, used mainly for sleeping! Breakfast is an additional Y1,100 ($AUD 14) per person but worth it. There is a good selection of Asian and European hot food including meats; I mention meats because many breakfasts these days do not include it. Reception seemed to always be attended, staff are friendly and have good to reasonable English skills. There is one thing that could be improved; a space with tables for guests to catch up on mail, internet, etc. Yes our room had Wi-Fi, but just one seat (a backless footstool really) and we used under the desk space for one of our rather large bags. The breakfast room has several long benches at the entrance which could serve the purpose, but the room is locked after 10am. Being a non-smoking hotel (Yay!), there is a smoking room on the ground floor, but not nice for a non-smoker to inhabit just to use the table therein. The crunch is; would we stay there again if we ever return to Tokyo? The answer is a definite YES.…
Our stay was fine. The room was cosy and small but did the job. The room had a safe and a fridge which was good. Safe hotel in Shinjuku but close to hospital so we heard sirens in the night but wasn’t too bad
We booked for the newly renovated semi double room - room is clean, a bit small but all good. You'll get free bottled water and tea bags everyday. Really good breakfast (croissants are buttery!).. Location is near Higashi Shinjuku station, really close to 7-11 and Family Mar too.
Far walk from train station, especially walking thru the busy spots crowded with people. Area was nice & quiet spot. Good selection of attractions & food nearby. Hotel offered free water bottles, nice slippers & beds.
We stayed at the Premier Hotel - Cabin - Shinjuku for three nights in August 2018. The location of the hotel is very good and you can easily walk to everything in Shinjuku. However, we were two people and the room is really small for anymore than one person. The staff, however, are very friendly and helpful. When we hiked up Mt. Fuji they held our luggage until we came back.
I cannot recommend this place if you want to be close to convenient transit. It's about halfway between two train stations. Uphill from Shinjuku station. Not convenient. The rooms are getting tired. When I was there in April and early May, the ac was not on yet. In order to open the window, I had to have them deliver a handle to my room that snapped into place and had to be returned at the end of the stay. Big step up from the room to the very small bathroom with absolutely no counter space for your 'stuff.' Breakfast was a buffet that was very good and well priced. No complaints about the food. While the hotel is non-smoking, I smelled plenty of it on my floor over three days there. Housekeeping quality was spotty.
This hotel is located 9 minutes walk from the Shinjuku Station, making it ideal to take the Yamanote line. It is in the centre of Kabukicho, an amazing area full of restaurants, shops, karaoke places and just great sights of the red light district (don’t be scared for this, it’s a completely safe area). The doors of the hotel are locked from 22:00 so only guests with the pass can enter. They offer a breakfast which has been by far the best of all the hotels we’ve stayed in Japan: there is a great selection of both Japanese and continental dishes, and the running hours for breakfast are from 7 to 10, so you can have a late morning if you wish. The room is as Japanese standards small, but you can put the luggage under the bed saving space. I would definitely come back if I’m in Tokyo again.…
So it turns out this is the red light district. Now I wouldn’t mind so much, although not super in love with all the dodgy looking men standing around on the streets. Turns out they are Touts, standing around trying to either get men into strip clubs or brothels (maybe??) or lure young woman to maybe work in the clubs? They have mostly left us alone, although if my husband walks ahead or behind my son and I and doesn’t look as if we are a group they will call out to him. So today we walked past a place and the tag line was “sexual harassment space” and that was a fun conversation explaining what that could mean to my 13 year old son. Don’t worry I talked about the patriarchy and poverty and power/control imbalance but not really what I had planned for my holiday-but hey I guess that travelling with kids! Anyway the hotel rooms are small, sooooo small. My husband and I who normally share a king are sleeping on maybe a king single? It’s certainly not even a double. I’m not much over 5 foot so the bath is ok, very short but deep (I really love baths).The main problem is that although it 3-4degrees C outside our room is pretty hot and stuffy. The A/C-heater is set to heat and the lowest we can put it is 20C. Windows don’t open and it’s just stuffy. We have slept with the heating off the last 2 nights, will try with it on set at 20 tonight in the hope it’s a bit cooler. Hard work getting dressed in all our thermals and layers before we go outside. Wifi seems to die at midnight. Staff have been nice and helpful, rooms are clean and we feel safe I just don’t like the area, so wouldn’t stay again because of that. it has been a good location to get around from. …
We arrived at the hotel early and left our luggage with the front desk while we went to explore. By the time we returned, our room was ready and the staff had moved our luggage (plus a piece of luggage that we had delivered to the hotel by Yamato) into our room. Staff were pleasant and spoke enough English for us to communicate. Our room was admittedly rather small but I think that's to be expected in a central location in Tokyo. Wifi was rather weak and inconsistent.
