I took Skyliner to Uneo, and then caught Metro to Higashi Shinjuku. It took me 7-8 mins to reach the hotel from the metro station by foot. It is 2 mins away from SHINJUKU MARUI MEN, 2.5 mins from ISETAN, 10 mins from BICQLO, 13 mins from NeWoMan, 12 mins from Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden.... so an ideal place for... More

We came across this hotel while searching for our Airbnb (yep that's right). After three hours in the freezing cold at 100am in the morning we gave up and followed the neon light of Via inn which led us to this hotel .

Clean and neat hotel will small room as many other hotels in Japan. You could get a bargain price if booked in well advance. Quite a good and cheap choice of hotel other than Toyoko... More

The hotel is situated in Shinjuku-Sanchome area. If you go to Shinjuku for shopping at Isetan, restaurants in Shinjuku-Sanchome or bar hopping in Golden Gai, this hotel is an ideal location. Very clean and friendly staff. Recommended for both business and pleasure.

Other guests were mainly Japanese and some from Hong Kong so this is a hotel that's a little off the radar for westerners. Hotel website is in Japanese and the hotel doesn't feature in hotel booking sites. So you need to call them to make a reservation; you might have some difficulty communicating but it's totally worth it. I stayed... More

Location: though you can walk from JR Shinjuku to the hotel, it was a bit far away. Instead, you may choose to take the local subway from Shinjuku to Shinjuku Sanchome (新宿三丁目). It took you about a few minutes but saved you some walking distance. There are a few convenient stores near the hotel, which was a good point. Room:... More

I've been here for several days in November and Via Inn and it was a great place to stay. Rooms will not provide you a lot of space, but they are clean and nice and it's enough to put your bags. It's not far from JR and Metro, so you can walk in 10 minutes. If you need to be... More

Via Inn is one of the hotels I use whenever I go to Tokyo or Osaka (they are everywhere in Japan) for work. I usually look for hotels around $70/night in Shinjuku and while you could find something a little cheaper, this hotel is well worth the price. The breakfast buffet is pretty good, the rooms are very clean and... More

First trip to Japan/Tokyo and am glad to be staying at this hotel. Simple, clean, nice and most importantly value for money. Location initially hard to locate, but once you found it, you will find it to be an excellent quiet location and yet close to the various buzzes of Shinjuku. Room wise, small in fact for some very small.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Shinjuku
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household.
