This hotel is just a stone’s throw away from Shinjuku Station – officially the busiest station in the world. That doesn’t mean you won’t get a good night’s sleep as HOTEL MYSTAYS Nishi Shinjuku is located in the slightly more sedate office and residential zone of Nishi Shinjuku.

If you’re into sampling all the night life options that Shinjuku has to offer, then the location of this hotel is ideal. The charming food alleys of Omoide Yokocho are just a few minutes away on foot. On the other side of the tracks is the seedy neighborhood of Kabukicho with its host clubs, love hotels and dive bars. To the south west of the hotel is the famed skyscraper district of Shinjuku – inspiration for Ridley Scott’s distopian future masterpiece Blade Runner.

Being so close to Shinjuku Station, Tokyo is your oyster. There is quick access to Narita airport via the N’Ex and easy connections to all the major stations in Tokyo. Shinjuku is also a major departure point for intercity buses as well as buses to the Mount Fuji area.

The hotel has single, double and twin rooms so it’s ideal for single travellers or couples, although maybe not the best place for large family groups – unless you all want your own room.
