Japan Trip 2015 - Tokyo - Day 5 - Kadoya Hotel Shinjuku
After alighting from the Airport Limousine at Keio Plaza Hotel, we need to walk straight through the hotel from one exit to the other exit, cross the zebra crossing towards Kadoya Hotel as per map.Turn right after two traffic lights (as per map) to reach the hotel. The reason for choosing the hotel was the hotel was in the best location in Shinjuku and the price was within our budget but we missed out a good deal at Agoda and had to book direct from Kadoya Hotel at extra S$80 per night, sobs. Shinjuku Train Station was just a short walk from the hotel too. It would be nice if we could stay in Keio Plaza Hotel but the hotel was fully booked for the promotion price and I could not afford to pay $600 to $700 per night for the hotel stay for non promotion rates. Keio Plaza Hotel is really very beautiful and the staff were really friendly and helpful, will tell more about them in another post. Map from official website of Kadoya Hotel. The room in Kadoya Hotel is really big in Japanese Standard cause normally hotel room in Japan is really small and best to book the twin bed room than the double bed room. Everything in Kadoya Hotel is really good from friendly staff, to bigger room,nice soft fluffy pillows, very good location and the only negative about the hotel was the hotel is a bit outdated and old. They do have renovated room so if you booked this hotel, ask for the new renovated room. The bedroom with plenty of space to walk about and placed our luggages. The bathroom is a bit small and old but very clean. There's a laundry room on Level 3, Prices: Washer 300 JPY / 40 min and Dryer 200 JPY / 30 min. They do not provide bottle drink in our hotel room, but there's a water vending machine in the Laundry Room is free but we find it troublesome so we just bought our mineral water from the 24 hours Lawson Mart just next to the hotel. We can pick extra pillows (soft or hard) from the reception on the ground floor at no charge. They sell souvenirs too and the prices were not that expensive. As it was raining season when I was there, the hotel provides free umbrellas on loan.
