The hotel is conveniently located close from Shinagawa Station. Walking distance, but it seems there is shuttle service at certain time table. If you do not have much luggage like a backpack or sort of like that, it would not be a problem to walk up the road toward the hotel. However, if you need to drag a suitcase around,... More

This hotel is very conveniently located at Shinagawa Station - good for JR Yamanote line and Shinkansen. The beautiful garden makes it an oasis from the busy city. The staff are very courteous and helpful. Breakfast at the Patio restaurant was slightly overpriced for the quality so we resorted to buying cereal, milk, fruit and bread at Kinokuniya, a supermarket... More

We chose this hotel for the location to the Shinagawa Station. We arrived via the Shinkansen and wanted somewhere close because we all had our luggages to carry. It's on a hill but you can go through the SAKURA Hotel lobby and go up to the Japanese Garden which leads you to the hotel. Our price included a breakfast buffet... More

Three of the Prince hotels at Takanawa (the Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa, the Prince Hotel New Takanawa, The Prince Sakura Towers) share an exquisite Japanese Garden which - especially in cheery blossom season - are reason enough to stay here. Located a short walk from the Shinagawa Shinkansen station, the hotels are within half an hour of most major tourist... More

When I need to visit the Tokyo area, I like to stay in Shinagawa because it's a transportation hub for air, regular train, subway and bus services there. There are several better hotels in this area and Grand Prince Hotel Takanawa is one of them. Though it is not a brand new or recently refurbished hotel, it's been maintained reasonably... More

We found the Grand Prince Hotel a very pleasant place to base ourselves for our few days in Tokyo. It's location is just a few minutes walk (uphill) from the well connected Shinagawa Station which is simple and direct to get to from Narita Airport taking around an hour by train. There is a courtesy bus from the station to... More

The Grand Prince Takanawa located centrally to Shingawa station; just a few stops from Tokyo. The hotel is lovely and surrounded by beautiful gardens; and if you go in March it's Cherry Blossum Season...during this time the hotel puts on a beautiful festival. (Check hotel for dates). Firstly, have to commend hotel staff and the exemplary service of Hiroyuki Shino.... More

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighborhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
