Tokyo is a bustling metropolis of 23 wards that can be difficult to choose between. In one of its most vibrant entertainment districts, the apartments at Citadines Shinjuku Tokyo are well placed for exploration and are on the larger size in a city where space is at a premium.
It's walking distance from the metro (Shinjuku Gyoemmae) and the pretty Gyoen Park (if you're there in spring, look out for the cherry blossom trees). The area is also home to the Tokyo Toy Museum, the Hanazono Shrine and Zenkokuji Markets (which often also host night markets), and the Samurai Museum -- all are within a 15-minute walk. You'll be spoilt for choice for food and drinks, with traditional Izakaya restaurants and the Shinjuku Golden Gai area, which is packed with tiny bars. Whisky fans shouldn’t miss Zoetrope, which has 300 labels on offer and screens vintage Japanese films.
The 3-star apartments are modern and simply finished. There’s no restaurant on site, but a continental breakfast with juice, pastries, bread, boiled eggs, yoghurt, sausages and noodles is served in the lounge (extra charge applies). Bike rental is available from reception and there's a small gym and coin-operated washing machine and dryer.
In the rooms, there's free Wi-Fi, air conditioning and a heated toilet in the bathroom. The kitchenette has a microwave, a hob, a mini fridge, a toaster, a coffee maker and kitchenware, and there's a small dining table, a couch and a DVD player as standard. Smoking and non-smoking rooms are available, so do specify which you'd prefer when booking.
