Key review: Quaint and acceptable accommodation if you only need a place to sleep, and maybe eat. It's key draw card is its location. More detailed feedback below. The location is why you would consider staying here. It's about an 8 minutes walk to the action at Shinjuku. There is also easy access to the west side business district. There is a family mart next door, and McDonald's across the road. My wife and I stayed 7 nights at the Nishitetsu Inn Shinjuku. We had no issues checking in at 1am, there was a bell boy who answered our buzzer call at the entrance. As expected, the room is small, but is liveable. We had two oversized luggages and we made do. Unfortunately, we were on a floor that allowed smoking, and so the smell is quite strong, even seeping into our bedroom carpets etc. Recommend you book a non-smoking room as I think you would then be placed on a non-smoking level which would make for a more enjoyable experience. There is a microwave facility, vending machines and coin laundry available on site, but don't expect your clothes to be fully dry after using the drier. We had to hang them up overnight to allow further drying. There is a female only floor which is nice for ladies who are travelling solo, but we didn't come across any shady characters in the precinct anyway. There are free toiletries etc. available in the foyer for guests to take which was nice. The hotel does not have an iron or iron board to press your clothes, but there is a press machine on level 10 but it did not have any instructions. The bed is firm, but could do with a plush topping as it can get uncomfortable. The pillows were OK, with some rice beads on the underside to provide support. Overall I slept average each night. There are ice machines and filtered water machines available in the microwave room which was nice too.

Clean, stylish, comfy and perfect location! Granted the rooms are on the smaller side but for solo travel or close couple it was perfect! Staff were friendly, breakfast was in an amazing little restaurant downstairs. 711 next door and twin station 10 minutes down the road it's perfect for a stay in Shinjuku!
