The key to this unremarkable but very convenient hotel, which is within the towering Mark City complex, is access: local shopping and cheap dining options are aplenty, Shinjuku is a five-minute train ride to the north, and the Narita Express departs from nearby Shibuya Station frequently each morning. Guest rooms, decorated in shades of beige and yellow, are plain but comfortable. North-facing rooms on the 10th floor and above (including the two ladies only floors on levels
23 and 24) afford views of the Shinjuku skyline. The vibrant Estacion Cafe, above Shibuya's insanely busy "scramble intersection," serves drinks and small snacks. Perhaps equally enjoyable is the lobby vending machine, with its robot-arm dispensing soft drinks and beer.
