“Shame for the "drain" smell”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2009

Two main problems with this hotel. The main one: the "drain" smell, that refuses to go away and is clearly an ongoing problem. The staff is aware of it and have a de-odourising machine but even that does not remove it. The staff does not tell you about it when you book. You only find out after you have paid - as they make you pay on arrival. Then you are stuck with a smelly room. On the second night, I got another room, which had an air purifier in it, which seemed to work. The second problem with this hotel is that they overstate the size of their rooms on their website. So, for over £80/ night, it is not that great value. Best about it remains the oustandingly central location.

The location really can't be beat - right in among the bright lights 2 minutes walk from Shinjuku station, and no problems with noise back in the room. Loads of eating and drinking options nearby. Room was very clean and more spacious than I was expecting being so close to Shinjuku station. Staff helpful too. This is the perfect hotel for enjoying the best of modern Tokyo and the bright lights. I will be back for sure.

Overall, a nice hotel with a wonderful staff. Location is in Nishi-Shinjuku, so lots of restaurants, shopping, etc. Everything you need is right there. Easy walk to the uber-crazy Shinjuku Station which is the busiest in Tokyo, and the world. The bed was comfortable, but they would do well to make the area under the bed a storage space like a lot of other business hotels will do in Japan. Travel lite if you plan to stay there because your luggage will take up much of the space in an already small room. Very clean room, but it could use a bit of a re-do. A little lingering smoke smell, but thats the same for every business hotel I've stayed Japan. You can't beat the price for the location in Shinjuku. I would consider staying there again. Now if they could just make Shinjuku Station a little more managable.........

We stayed 4 nights at Kadoya during our visit to Tokyo. The hotel was rather basic and small, but it was clean and you can't go wrong for the price and location (a short walk from Shinjuku railway station). Highly recommended for budget travellers in Tokyo.

We stayed in the upgraded twin room and found it to be an excellent value. Not only was it more like the traditional two double bed hotel rooms I'm used to at home, but there was an air purifier and a fabulous reclining massage chair in it as well. My daughter has allergies so I was worried about her asthma acting up as we were staying in a smoking room, but the air purifier made the place odour free. There is no view due to the surrounding skyscrapers, but the 45th floor of the government buildings is only two blocks away and it's free!
