Right in front of the hotel, there is a bus stop for a limousine bus that shuttles from Narita Airport and Haneda Airport to the hotel (charges apply). There's a convenience store, restaurant, and even an izakaya (居酒屋, Japanese-style bar), which means you can get just about everything you need without stepping foot outside the hotel. We recommend this hotel for those who want to relax during their trip.

Furthermore, it only takes an 8-minute walk from JR Shinjuku Station South Exit's underground passageways to reach the hotel; you can walk from the station to the hotel without getting wet even on rainy days. (Underground passage is open from 6:00am - 10:45pm)

Inside the hotel, there's not just a Japanese restaurant, but also a Chinese restaurant, amongst several other kinds of high-class restaurants.
