I spent a week and a half at this fine little hotel. Little enough that It was actually a bit hard to find. No matter which airport you come from, you want to take a connecting line (it's a monrail from Haneda) to the JR Yamanote line. Take that to Shin-okubo station, where there's only one exit. It lets you out onto Okubo-dori St. Turning right down this street you will immediately pass under the elevated railroad tracks (nice murals!) and find yourself at an intersection. Cross the intersection and go straight. You will quickly come to a street/alley on your right. This is what you want. Just past several Korean restaurants (you're in Koreatown) and a very small parking lot you will find Hotel Matsunoi on your right. The gentleman who checked me in spoke excellent English and provided me with a guide book full of the best maps to Tokyo I would find anywhere during my stay. The room was not spacious, but it was big enough for me. All the fixtures were new, and everything was clean. Other staff members were courteous and helpful as well, though their English was limited. The hotel is north of Shinjuku, so revellers could sometimes be heard until almost midnight. The trains usually woke me up in the morning, but there's too much to see in Tokyo to sleep the day away. Being two short blocks from the JR Yamanote line was such a boon to my explorations! And though I'm more into J-rock than K-pop, I discovered that I rather like Korean food. Thanks Hotel Matsunoi!
