4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Room and shared bathrooms were clean and new. However, my room was at the ground level, where the common kitchen and reception reside. It got very noisy in the early morning. After checked out, they allowed me to leave my bags till evening, which was good. Location was 10 mins walk from train station and is in the Korean town of Shinjuku.
