Check it Out! “Hotel Gracery Shinjuku” Explicit Review

I stayed at "Hotel Gracery Shinjuku," which is characterized by Godzilla that appeared in Shinjuku. The rooms on the higher floors were new and beautiful and the bathrooms were spacious. Guests can approach Godzilla and have breakfast next to it. The hotel is located in the middle of Shinjuku Kabukicho and is in a very convenient location, so you can go sightseeing or stay on a business trip.

Summary

The room, bath and toilet was clean and satisfying. However, it was difficult to work in the hotel on my computer, because the room was very small.

The night view from the window was also beautiful.
