What’s Hundred Stay Tokyo Shinjuku like?

The hotel is quite basic, but the rooms are spacious, with many configurations for families or multiple guests.

What amenities does the hotel have?

There’s a large dining/lounge area for guests on the ground floor, plus a laundry facility. The hotel lobby and shared areas are perfectly functional, but if you’re looking for somewhere nice to hang out, you can easily hop on the train and explore the options in Shinjuku and beyond.

What are the rooms like?

The rooms at Hundred Stay Tokyo Shinjuku are much more like apartments than hotel rooms, with a bit more space and simple furnishings.

The USB and power outlet are on the headboard of the bed, and there’s a decent amount of desk space. Rooms feature a large TV, and even a DVD player should you happen to have some DVDs in your suitcase!

How big are the rooms?

The rooms start at 25 m2, so they are large by Tokyo hotel standards. Family rooms and the 2-bedroom apartments go up to over 60 m2.

Are the rooms comfortable?

Even the smallest rooms have a sofa, desk and chair, so there’s plenty of space to sprawl out and relax. The hotel is a tall building, so most rooms offer a nice view of Tokyo’s cityscape. You can easily pass some time watching life going on below.

What’s the view like?

The hotel is tall and set just far enough from central Shinjuku for good uninterrupted views from most rooms. It’s not quite the Lost in Translation view Scarlett Johansson had from the Park Hyatt Tokyo, but it’s great for a hotel at this price point.

What’s the location like?

Okubo is Tokyo’s Koreatown, so if you want some K-pop vibes and bibimbap on your trip to Tokyo, then this is the hotel for you. Although named Hundred Stay Shinjuku, the main Shinjuku Station is quite a long walk away. It’s best to jump on the nearby JR train line at Okubo Station and ride one short stop.

How do I get there from the airports?

Being near Shinjuku, airport access is fairly straightforward. There’s a short extra step getting from Shinjuku to Hundred Stay Tokyo Shinjuku — either one stop on the JR Sobu Line or a short taxi ride. See our article on getting from Narita to Shinjuku and Haneda Airport to Tokyo for full details.

How is the access to trains and subway?

The nearby JR Okubo Station gets you to well-connected Shinjuku Station in 2 minutes. There’s also the JR Shin-Okubo Yamanote Line about a 7-minute walk away. That means you’ll have about the same ease of acesss as you would from many of the hotels in Shinjuku. Whether you’re planning a day trip to see Mount Fuji, or just exploring the city, this hotel is a pretty good point to start from.

What’s the surrounding neighborhood like?

The Okubo area has unmistakable Koreatown vibes, with youngsters filling up the streets, Korean food, tapioca, or whatever the latest teenage Korean trend is. It’s also a love hotel district, and with its proximity to Shinjuku, there’s a reasonable amount of activity at night. It’s not a full-blown nightlife district though, so noise isn’t a major concern.

The hotel rooms are far away from street level, so you’ll probably find your room nice and quiet as we did during our stay.

Are there good places to eat nearby?

If you’re not much of a Korean food fan, there are plenty of other Japanese cuisine options in the area and generally on the cheaper end of the spectrum. There’s also a supermarket at the base of the hotel, which is handy for breakfast and quick meals (there should be at least a microwave in every room).

What points of interest are within walking distance of the hotel?

Apart from the K-pop and Koreatown highlights, Shinjuku has a great deal of activities to keep you entertained. See our guides on things to do in Kabukichō and Shinjuku.
