Summary

“Citadines Shinjuku Tokyo” is a perfect hotel for a long term stay. The hotel is surrounded by other buildings, so depending on the room you stay in, the view may not be great. It was a little disappointing to not be able to see the night view of Shinjuku. The hotel is a little far from Shinjuku main street and downtown. It is located in an inconvenient location, so the cost of the rooms were cheap even with a kitchen included. Unfortunately, the breakfast venue was small and crowded. This hotel is recommended for those planning on staying long term around Shinjuku for business reasons.
