Citadines Shinjuku

The Citadines Shinjuku and its sister hotel Citadines Shinjuku Central are ingenious apartment-hotels that are perfectly located at the heart of Tokyo’s downtown. They strip out the extra overheads associated with larger hotels so provide excellent value for the traveller looking for a comfortable and stylish place to rest their heads after days and nights out in the big city.

Both the exterior and the interior designs are bright, colourful and modern, bringing a fresh twist to the typically plain apartment-block buildings. The apartment-style rooms are compact, cosy and clean – in a sense, they feel more personal than the usual hotel rooms, creating the overall effect of a home away from home. While Citadines Shinjuku is by no means luxurious, this hotel still provides many amenities, including televisions, Wi-Fi and a well-equipped gym, complete with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Breakfast is also included during your stay – we recommend taking advantage of the light and airy dining room as well as the variety of continental food, which may provide a welcome break to the Western palate after multiple Japanese breakfasts. Another huge plus of Citadines Shinjuku is their staff, for they tend to speak conversational English – which is usually only the case at super luxe hotels in Japan – and are friendly and helpful.

Sightseeing is easily accessible from this hotel, with Hanazono shrine and Shinjuku Gyoen park both less than a ten-minute walk away. You’ll be spoilt for choice as these sights only scratch the surface of the cultural gems dotted around this city. If your feet get tired from exploring, bicycles are available to rent from Citadines Shinjuku. Shinjuku is renowned as a fun, lively entertainment district that comes alive at night, particularly down the popular Kabukichō street and within ‘Golden Gai’ - a post-war maze of tiny authentic bars, as well as in the iconic Robot Restaurant - the more child-friendly spot - so Citadines Shinjuku is suitable for all ages. Shinjuku Train Station is also only a 20-minute walk so you can visit the eclectic mix of Tokyo’s districts easily.

An excellent way to start or end a Japan experience.

My favourite thing is to go where I've never been.

Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!

So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!

I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
