Shinjuku Prince Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This a ryokan, a kind of traditional inn, for western people. In the midle of the forest. Traditional rooms and bed styling; bathing and wearing a kimono for the diner gala, served in real japanese style. Beautiful and peaceful surroundings and the must of locaion: the traditiona onsen, you must try with all the ritual. Have few rooms for groups/ privat parties, diner/ breakfast and a common "restaurant".

We've been to this place for 1 night. We had a good night life after dinner at Rokkasen which is 5 minutes away by foot. This place located in the good area of shinjuku. Easy to get around. The breakfast is good. Recommended!,

Nice and modern hotel with easy access to food, shopping malls; as well as train station.Staff were very helpful and room was in excellent condition.Bathroom amenities provided were very fulfilling.Great place to stay.

Shinjuku Prince is a nice modern hotel about 2 blocks from the East Exit Shinjuku Station. I have had a very nice stay here and a lot of very good things about this hotel Checkin is very easy, at checkin I asked for a larger room and was offered one for a very reasonable upgrade fee, Standard room is a tiny 15 sq meters, I am instead in a 30 sq meters one which is avg size of a US hotel room. Location really cant be beat for access to rail/subway network and local walking whether its Kubukicho, cherry blossoms in the park, shopping galore, just an excellent location Bed is awesome, nice crisp clean sheets. Wifi excellent and easy. Staff has been very helpful. Room is a good value for the money in Tokyo

I came to visit my relative and booked a triple deluxe room. I purposely booked this hotel for the location because there are alot eateries and shops nearby, so there is no need for the train. I had walked around, and I never saw any yakuza or touts nearby. The male staff wearing glasses who helped me to check in at 16 March around 11pm is very helpful, polite and friendly with smile face. toiletries included shampoo body wash conditioner toothbrush/paste, hair brush, razor with shaving cream, shower cap. The shampoo and conditioner is really good. If you want to speak english to the staff, please speak slowly otherwise they couldn‘t get it what you mean. The room is not really small, wifi coverage and speed is good, the room and service is good and fast, it‘s around 15°-9°C but I have no problem with the air conditioner or air circulation system, the sofa pull out bed mattress is hard with spring. This is a great hotel that suppose to deserve a 5 stars, however, one bad thing made me rate this hotel four stars is because the smell from the bidet. The deodorant/water released from the bidet is really really really smelly, I have to keep spraying the deodorizer they had prepared everytime I entered or used the bathroom. The smell people mentioned in the comments wasn‘t from the carpet, it‘s from the bidet. Please look forward and solve this problem, thanks.

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. The location is very close to the Shinjuku JR station"EAST EXIT" around 5 mins walk. Rooms are small as expected, but we are still able to have 4 luggage in the room. Staff are helpful, we tell the reception that the room is too hot and they bring us an stand fan within 1 min. Excellent place to stay if you want quick access to JR.

Location is the best part of this hotel. Close to all you could want in Shinjuku - trains, arcades, robot restaurant, and food galore. Rooms are small but standard size for Tokyo so no complaint there. They were clean and there were no major issues. Staff were accommodating and friendly. No real complaints but nothing spectacular.

The location is good because of is near to the train, subway station and hundreds of shops and restaurant. But the room are very very dirty. The air in the rooms are NOT breathable. Smell bad. Air conditioned not working, filter dirty. Never again

As with any hotel in Japan it was small. but good enough for us couple. it was conveniently located close to everything shopping, eateries and 7/11 and very close to the train station. i would highly recommend.. the rooms were also super clean and modern

Stayed here for three nights during the Lunar New Year holidays. The property itself is an older building but kept in good condition. The reception is in B1. This being Japan, the staff are courteous and friendly. The lower floors are part of the shopping centre. The Seibu Shinjuku Station is right next to the hotel. The massive Shinjuku station is a short walk away. Access can be via the underground mall. A friend best describes the area as being the more lively part of Shinjuku, right next to the Kabukicho area. There are plenty of eating places nearby. Just be brave and venture out. Never felt unsafe the whole time we were in the area. We had a triple room where the sofa set was converted into a bed. Makes the room a bit smaller but otherwise acceptable. The only really strange thing is the absent of a proper cupboard/drawers to store your clothes. The bathroom has a bathtub and the hotel is happy to replenish the amenities daily. And on checking in, we were given chocolates for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. WIFI is somewhat decent and accessible from all parts of the hotel. Location wise, this is a rather convenient place. Walking distance to all the food and shopping in the area. And also conveniently located to take the subway to other parts of the city. Do look out for Godzilla if you are facing the Kabukicho area. If you see the train tracks, you are looking at the wrong side. It is slightly noisy though. Will we return? We think so. There are enough pros to outweigh the cons. For cat lovers, the Calico Cat Cafe is really a short five minutes walk away.
