I had a nice stay at this hotel. I stayed in the executive room this time, so it was nice to have access to the executive lounge. The lounge was quiet and relaxing. There was also a variety of drinks and the light buffet was satisfying, so I didn’t have to go out to eat at night, and just relaxed in the hotel. The room was not very big, but it was clean and cozy. It is a hotel built in a good location, close to Shinjuku Station, but not in a busy area.
