"A 3-star hotel conveniently located"
We stayed in 2 connecting twin scenic rooms (facing the east) for one night only. I was told connecting rooms are available only for the twin scenic rooms. I chose the hotel as it was conveniently located within walking distance to the express bus terminal, as we need to take the bus to Mount Fuji the next morning. The hotel is very basic and the rooms are very dated. The hotel lobby is very much nicer. We were disappointed with the room condition upon check-in and cancelled our reservations for the days when we'll return to Tokyo again. The airport limousine from Haneda airport stops at the hotel and Shinjuku station, Takashimaya, Tokyu hands and lots of restaurants are just next door. We did not have breakfast at the hotel but at a very nice boulangerie close by.
"Convenience and Comfort"
Stayed in this hotel for 5 days when I had a family vacation. It was my first time in Japan and this hotel never failed me. Hotel Century Southern Tower is super near to most of the establishments and the train station. The location is really convenient. The staff, friendly. The room is comformtable and with an awesome view of downtown Shinjuku (got the scenic twin room). Although there were only a few english cable channels but then who would watch TV when you have tons of wonderful places in Japan waiting for you. 😁 The hotel also has a smoking room (near the reception area) that is uber clean and has air filters. This is not recommended though since the smell of the smoke sticks to the clothes, hair, etc when you leave the room. The bathroom has a tub, the toilets are automatic (hahaha) and the bathroom goodies are cool (bwahaha). The beds are comfy with nice, big pillows. This hotel gives you your money's worth.
"Location and Amazing view"
First time staying here with high expectations from it, and it never disappoint me. The room comes with a stunning view. The moment I opened the curtain, everything was a "WOW!" Even the lobby's toilet view was a "WOW!". Besides the amazing view, it located opposite takashimaya and tokyu-hands (estimated 3min walk). Below the hotel there were franc-franc, starbucks and western-bakery at the side. Shinjuku station was also a mere 3min walk. The hotel provides shiseido toiletries - shampoo, shower gel etc. Most importantly, airport shuttle bus stopped right in front of hotel building. If you are carrying bulky luggage this is definitely a plus point for you. Overall, I felt comfortable, clean and safe.
"Room a little old but roomier by Japanese standards "
We were looking for a triple room and this was one of the few hotels in shinjuku that offered a 3 bedder room. Amenities were complete - full size bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash from reputable Japanese Toiletries brand. Also a basket of body scrub towel, shaver, hair brush and hair bands, toothbrush etc were refilled daily. Room size is big by Japanese standards. My only complain would be that the carpet smell a little musty and the air con a little stuffy.
I stayed at Hotel Century Southern Tower on July 11-14. I experienced an amazing service from them. When I returned home on the 14th, I found that I left my cash locked in the safe of my room. Though late at night, I immediately wrote an email to them about the problem. Within eight hours, Asaka Nishio, their reservation agent, replied that they found the money and would keep it until my friend picked it up. This is what I mean by amazing service. I had stayed many times in this hotel since it opened in 1998. I always go back for their very friendly service. But this time, their heart to serve really amazed me. Thank you.
