October 2022: Please note Hotel Mystays Nishi Shinjuku has now permanently closed. Please see our Shinjuku page for other places to stay in the district.
With a convenient West Shinjuku location, the Hotel Mystays Nishi Shinjuku is a decent moderately priced hotel within walking distance of the station.
The Mystays chain is a good-value hotel chain. This one in Nishi (West) Shinjuku is not their newest or best branch. The location is excellent and you can walk to Shinjuku Station in about five minutes. There are tons of great restaurants nearby, as well as shops and convenience stores.
The rooms are okay, but both the rooms and common areas are getting a little long in the tooth. However, if you can get a good deal online, it’s a decent choice.
It’s likely that the hotel will be renovated in the near future. Once it is, it will be a very strong contender in the West Shinjuku market.
