There are tons of hotels in Tokyo. It’s always difficult for me to just pick one hotel for my stay. It’s always fun for me to stay in a local hotel brand that has their exquisite decor. Here is the example.
The room size is always a challenge in Japan, when most of the hotels only provide a room size of 12-20m2. It is super tiny that I can’t believe I would be able to fit into a room that is so small, it just gives me a terrible vibe. For those travellers who dislike small room, it is sensible to pay more for a bigger room, which I did for this one.
Room: For Granbell Shinjuku, I didn’t book the cheapest room in fact I booked a room which is their 5th tier. Still I found it so small that the sink is located outside of the bathroom.

Location: There is a train station (東新宿） located 4 mins away from the hotel. There are some convenient stores near the hotel, but it is definitely not a shopping district. It is wiser to take few train stops to go to those major shopping area.
Overall: It is not what I expected. I thought the room would be bigger, and the photo doesn’t match with what I got. Therefore, I won’t be going to stay in this hotel when I return to the same area. It’s just not worth it.
