Check it Out! “Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku” Explicit Review

I stayed at the "Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku," which is about a 3 minute walk from Shinjuku Station. Access to the area around Shinjuku was good, and the room was compact and there was no inconvenience during my stay. Buses from the airport stops in front of this hotel, so it is recommended for those who need to get to places right away or people who are staying for work.
