Shinjuku Prince Hotel3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is located near Shinjuku station and also Goldengai which is if you are looking for night life, this is the place to stay. However, you need to request hot water in house keeping no complimentary water in the room, it is pretty much the basic that you would be asking yourself why you are spending so much on a room with basically nothing on it except for a bed.
Although from Shinjuku Station is quite walking distance to the hotel, overall the hotel itself is quite satisfactory. We really like the 3 beds option in a room because it really solves the room needs for 3 adults
Staying at this hotel will give you access to pretty much anything you could want. Several major department stores, central Shinjuku shopping, Shinjuku nighlife, and the train station which is a major hub where many of the subways and JR lines converge - all within walking distance. The staff in the main lobby of the hotel as well as at the entrance reception desk are super helpful and all speak excellent English. The rooms are bigger than what you get in most other hotels of this price range (of course, this is Tokyo, so there is still not much space!) and very clean. Two minor points you should be aware of, though: First, the train that runs through the hotel. The higher your room floor, the less you will be impacted by this, but I was staying on the 12th floor and I DID hear and feel it every time, at least one train per minute. So bring some earplugs. Second, the access to the Haneda airport limousine bus station is not quite as easy as it is described on the hotel website. The buses for Haneda do not leave at the Shinjku West bus terminal, but in another building further away ("Busta"). It is at least a 15 minute walk around the crowded Shinjku station, so best take a taxi which will only set you back 650Yen or so. All in all, would I stay at this hotel again? Yes, definitely!
The hotel is just right next to the subway and minutes from the JR Shinjuku station. Right underneath are selections of clothing shops and restaurants from Subnade. The hotel is right next to Kabukicho where all the food is and it is next to the Pepe shopping mall. We advised the staff that it was our honeymoon so they gave us complimentary breakfast and also an incredible room overlooking Shinjuku neon lights. What more could i ask for from this hotel.
Stayed here for two night in October 2017 - and from what I read, it was a relatively new hotel. The location is extremely convenient to Shinjuku station. Though a bit difficult to navigate at first to get to, I got use to it. The room I stayed in was sufficient for what I needed. I stayed in a room with a double bed. Room was clean, with a good selection of amenities provided such as toothbrush and shoe shine cloth. My room faced a big giant “Godzilla” in the background. The noise from the surround area did not effect my sleep. There are shades to darken the room so the bright lights don’t come in. Just some tips: - Front desk to check in is located one level down from street level - There are different precincts within Shinjuku and the ‘eating’ one is very close by to the hotel. - The area around the hotel comes to life at night. Bright lights and loud noise from music playing around but not enough to have an impact on my sleep. Overall - would stay there again.
Shinjuku is prime area for Shopping. We have been there as Incentive Group. Location Location Location is a Key. Room Size is small but it is a standard of Tokyo Hotel. Breakfast is very ok for 4 or 5 star Hotel.
I am going to start this review by stating, "You get what you pay for." This is a nice and clean hotel right in the heart of Shinjuku but it does have a few drawback which you should think about before making your decision to stay here. But, I will get into those in a moment. This hotel is one of the Prince hotels which is a large chain in Japan. The thing this hotel really has going for it is that you go out the front door and you are right there in Shinjuku -- one of the hot spots of Tokyo. In times gone past, Shinjuku was a center for youthful entertainment. It always had its Red Light District over to the East of the area. Now, however, this Red Light District has expanded immensely. It has pretty much taken over all of the Shinjuku entertainment region. This is good for some and bad for others. Your choice. But, this is still Shinjuku, so you are near Shinjuku Station and have access to all that Tokyo has to offer. Plus, from the higher floors, you have a great view of Tokyo. In terms of the rooms, this is what you must think about. The hotel is clean and the rooms are well-maintained but they are very small. If you look at the photos of them provided by the hotel's website, they are very realistic. There is your bed, a small TV, a small refrigerator, and a small bathroom but that is it. There is no closet. All they provide you with is two wooden hooks on the wall and four coat hangers. There is no chest of drawers. So, as the old saying goes, if you stay here, you will be, "Living out of your suitcase." The good news is, the shower is very good; with very strong pressure. This is something that a lot of hotels are not famous for. And, though you are in Shinjuku, the hotel is very soundproofed, so you are not going to hear a lot of street noise. They have a restaurant but it is not very good. Don't eat there. There are so many great restaurants in Tokyo that should be tried, don't waste your appetite in a hotel restaurant. The hotel also provides a machine for currency exchange but it is not a face-to-face transaction. It is functional but not a great experience and this machine's exchange rate is not as good as what you will find at the exchange shops on the street. But, if you need money fast you can go there. It is downstairs. The staff is all very nice and helpful. But, is this a five-star hotel? Nowhere near. I recently spent five night at this hotel. My two favorite hotels in Shinjuku are the Hyatt and the Hilton. I have stayed at both of them more times than I can count. But, I made a last minute trip and they were booked, so I sough out a different alternative. This was my choice. And, I will say, it did provide me with a unique experience. Overall, would I stay here again in a pinch? Sure. It is not a bad hotel and it is vastly cheaper than the previously two mentions hotels. But, you get what you pay for. Not great but the Shinjuku Prince is a good hotel.
Stayed here for three nights. The room is as usual by Japanese Tokyo standard small and very tight. Enjoyed the view from our room. The location is ok but the walk from Shinjuku was a bit daunting with luggage. Breakfast was mediocre and choice limited. We don't like the location as much as this was a choice of friend who are traveling together. At night there was quite a few drunken men although not menace but annoying as some fell on foot path. Overall the hotel is ok although the room is so small.
The room was cozy but a little too tight. We were three (2 adult with1 child) and it was a tight squeeze especially with 2 huge luggages. It was okay for the price, there's a lot of resto and things to do. It's not that close to the trains though
The hotel is in the Kabukicho area. Very lively especially at night. Lots of restaurants and places to shop nearby. A great place. The shopping complex PEPE is part of the hotel building and one has direct access during business hours.
