Check it Out! “Hotel Century Southern Tower” Explicit Review

I stayed at "Odakyu Hotel Century Southern Tower" at the back of the Southern Terrace of Shinjuku Station. The night view of Shinjuku Station and the streets were very beautiful from the hotel.

Summary

The view is very nice, because the rooms are located on the the upper floor of the hotel, and even though the hotel is right by the Station, it was very quiet. I recommend you sleep with the curtains open and enjoy the night view as you fall asleep. The new national stadium of the Tokyo Olympic main stadium can be seen from the hotel as well. This hotel is recommended for both sightseeing and business trips.
