4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Only stayed at this hotel for one night but I wish it could have been more. Staying in Shibuya was just too expensive but this hotel is very near the rail line for a very cheap and quick trip to that part of town. Great property, staff, and room.all around.

this was a really nice hotel !! staff was excellent. it was located close to the train station which was good nothing bad to say !!!

I would say that the hotel, from accomdations to staff, was very professional. The rooms are smaller than in the U.S. Tokyo is not an inexpensive city but alive and vibrant at all times. The people are incredible. Americans could learn a lot from them! A good value on the hotel.

I am very happy with all the staffs in that Hotel.

My first stay in Japan and I was expecting a small room. In a pleasant surprise the room was as large as the typical American hotel room. The bathroom featured a full bath/shower and had a high tech toilet. One small complaint - the mattress was on the hard side. The grounds were spacious and well maintained. The staff was very accommodating with many English speakers (I am a beginner with Japanese). I did not try any of the restaurants or bars on site but they looked fancy and were on the expensive side. The location is right across the street from Shinagawa station which is a hub of many lines including JR lines. The surrounding area was primarily residential.

I loved very friendly and customer-driven staff, a nice Japanese garden, and a clean room.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in late September. The service was very professional and we have no complaints. Our room was quite large by Japanese standards and we had a nice view of the Tokyo skyline. We would hope to stay at this hotel again when visiting Tokyo in the future.

The hotel is located in great proximity to all rail lines including subways. The hotel shuttle bus was a great convenience operating every 15 to 20 minutes to and from Shinagawa Station. Every member of the hotel staff was very helpful, courteous, friendly and always smiling. They made the stay very comfortable.

This hotel was clean and quiet! the staff was the best, and really helpful. Its really close to Shinagaway station. The only downside was after a long day of sightseeing, there is a small hill to go up to the Hotel from the train station. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone!

A 5 minute walk from busy Shinagawa station brings you to the sprawling gardens and koi pond of the hotel. From Shinagawa, you have rapid access to the major sights of Tokyo via the JR Yamanote line, and can reach Haneda Airport in less than 20 minutes on the Keikyu line. The hotel has a very large and peaceful lobby area with restaurants, and a really beautiful garden connecting it with neighboring hotels. Our room was a Garden View Double, and was spacious with an enormous King bed. Facing the garden, it was completely quiet, and was a peaceful getaway from the bustle of the city.

Everything was very nice and service was terrific. My only issue was the towel rack was too low in front of the toilet in the bathroom. If you are taller than 5 feet 7 inches, put a hand towel to cover the corner of the towel rack so if you hit your forehead, it won't hurt so bad.

Good location, great value, very convenient for business meetings and reaching Odaiba' Tokyo Big Sight exhibition center

After two weeks in Japan, this was our final stop. The location was right next to the Shinkansen so we had easy access to Narita. However, we didn't need it as the hotel had a bus which made the luggage transfer easier. This was a good last stop as the facilities were a little older than usual but it was less expensive and, as usual in Japan, we were well cared for.

Besides the confusion of the hotel's name with two other hotels in the same area with similar names, the Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa was spectacular. It boasts a beautiful Japanese garden, excellent and attentive service and immaculately clean and comfortable rooms. Though moderately dated, the rooms are good sized and have all of the amenities (full sized body wash, conditioner and shampoo, mini fridge, free internet, coffee/tea maker, flat screen t.v., slippers and nice Japanese robes) I did not spend much time in the Shinigawa area, but this hotel is conveniently located one block from the Shinigawa train station, and it's easy to get everywhere in Tokyo. Of course, everything at the hotel (food, drinks, etc) is incredibly expensive, but that's par for the course in Tokyo. If you enjoy understated elegance, cleanliness and great service, you will enjoy this hotel

Hotel did not have reservation. Room had a very srong smell of cigarette smoke.

Very small room at an older Japanese hotel. Staff was wonderful and everyone spoke English. It's a few blocks uphill from the Shinagawa train station, so it was very convenient for us. They also included 20% off meal coupons, which were fantastic for us since we used one on our wedding reception and got a $1,000 discount on it!

we liked this hotel a lot. it's really close to the JR station, the inside of the room is really nice, we especially loved the heated toilet seat and the retractable cloth line in the bathroom.

old, porrly located, everything is extra including the pool

This is my fourth stay in Shinagawa in the past eight years, and the third time with the Prince brand in the Shinagawa Station area, but this is the first time at this particular hotel. It was a little confusing figuring out which tower I was in, as there are probably half a dozen, each with their own check-in desks. Believe it or not, there is one tower called The Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa and the Grand Prince New Hotel Takanawa to make it even more confusing. But when I did check in to the wrong tower, I couldn't believe how the check-in clerk (not a bellhop) walked my luggage all the way to the correct tower. Staff helpfulness was impecabble and they speak good English. This tower is not as close to the Station as the towers in the Prince Shinagawa complex, which is basically across the street. If I had to stay in Shinagawa again, I would go back to the Prince Shinagawa rather than the Takanawa tower for walking distance alone. My only warning to Americans used to 5-star American hotels is that they should lower their expectations. A 5-star Japanese room, aside from the service, is more like a 3.5-4.0 star. Its decent and clean but by no means luxurious.

The Hotel Grand Prince Takanawa was overall a nice hotel, but the rooms were dated. Location was good, but I think the price of the hotel was a little high for what you recieved.
