The view was not particularly great, and it was only a view of the city.
In the bathroom, there was a toilet, a sink, and a shower-integrated bathtub all in the same space. Although it is not big, it is a hotel just opened in August 2019, so it was very clean.

This hotel was very beautiful and comfortable to stay in. Since it is a hotel in the downtown area of Shinjuku, the view was not great, but the interior decoration of the hotel is stylish. Because they were only serving light snack for breakfast, it was a little unsatisfying. There are many restaurants around the hotel, so you can have a delicious meal outside of the hotel. It is a little inconvenient if you have a large suitcase, because you have to walk a little ways from the station. It is a nice and comfortable hotel to stay in, so I would like to stay here again.
