Located in East Shinjuku, directly next to a subway station, the Sotetsu Fresa Inn Higashi Shinjuku (formerly Hotel Sunroute Higashi Shinjuku) is an excellent value and well-run business hotel.
If you’re looking for a great business hotel in a convenient location with very reasonable rates, the Sotetsu Fresa Inn Higashi Shinjuku is a great choice. The Sunroute chain is one of Japan’s best and most reliable hotel chains and this is no exception.
It’s located a relatively long walk from Shinjuku Station in East Shinjuku, but it’s directly next to Higashi-Shinjuku Station, which is on the Toei Oedo Line, which will get you to Shinjuku station in a minute and to many other parts of the city very quickly. There are some restaurants and convenience stores nearby, and the hotel also has two on-site restaurants.
