"Location to die for"
Location Location Location, this hotel is located in a great place, easy to go around yet quiet enough to rest peacefully not to mention the wonderful view of Shinjuku Gyoen. The room was clean and a decent Tokyo standard.
"Good hotel, very conveniently located"
We spent three nights here after arriving the Eastern US on a 14 hour flight. The hotel was convenient for us since it is one of the stops on the limo from Narita. It is also near the Shinjuku railway station and Metro, and within walking distance of sights like the Meiji Shrine and the Gyoen gardens. We had a Superior King room which was clean and adequate - my wife loved the Japanese toilet with heated seat. The bed was fine although jet lag killed our sleep. Contrary to what some reviewers have said, we found the desk staff to speak decent English. The buffet breakfast had many selections and was generally OK but the scrambled eggs were poor. We were on the top floor and had a view that included Mt Fuji - just barely off to one side. One odd thing was that the hotel provided a pictorial guide to what you could see out the window but the one in our room seemed to be for a different side of the hotel.
We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our holiday. The hotel was picked mainly for the location and the views promised from the room. We had a scenic king room, 3161. The room and bed were easily the biggest hat we had while in Japan. The view...wow. We could see all over east Tokyo! The room was very comfortable, although starting to show some signs of wear and tear. It wasn't the most modern hotel we stayed at, but was very well equipped. Each morning a newspaper as delivered to the room. The check in at the hotel was quick and efficient, even though it was a busy time for them. There is a shop in the lobby that sells a bit of everything and a couple of restaurants. We didn't make use of the restaurants but they always looked busy. We were able to ship our luggage to the hotel in advance. The location was great, just on the southern terrace exit of Shinjuku and easily found from there. I'd consider staying here again if in Tokyo.
"Great location, pretty good rooms"
The room was clean, the bed is comfortable, and the space while small seemed standard size for Tokyo and was efficiently used. small but well functioning bathroom. The location was very good being an easy walking distance to many fine restaurants and attractions, Yet the hotel itself was quiet. Our air conditioning did not work very well and this is important to me because I sleep poorly in a warmer room, and hence the reason for my lower rating. The room did not seem to get as cold as it should have been according to the thermostat reading, and unfortunately nothing could be done about this. Having said that, to be fair, I like my room pretty cold, so if this is not a big issue for you, this would still be a good hotel choice.
We went trekking in Oze National Park and stop over in Tokyo for 2 nights enroute to Sapa, Vietnam for our second trek leg. Hotel Century Southern Tower was our choice for its proximity to a train station ie Shinjuku for our very early departure via train to Narita Airport. Check in our smooth and efficient. Staff members are all friendly and knowledgeable. Housekeeping was excellent. We did not do F&B at the hotel as we had 'favourites' to go to.
