Satisfactory services provided, with fair room size and clean beds. Beside the hotel is Sunshine City, which caters restaurants and comic related stores. 10-15 minutes walk from nearest underground station.

We had a very quiet, largish room with a good view. It's in a great location in this vibrant suburb. It's attached to a big shopping centre so all shopping was easy. But like almost every Japanese hotel, the bed was hard and uncomfortable.

We stayed here 2 times, during our Japan round-trip, at our arrival and departing from Japan, 6 nights totally. This is a good hotel and has a very good location, very close to the huge Ikebukuro underground and railway station. Price/quality ratio is good (~170 Euro/night/2 persons with 2 breakfasts) – we are, however, in Tokyo, one of the world's... More

Stayed on this hotel for seven nights. The first impression of the hotel was not bad, but also not good. Just as it should for a 3 star hotel. The service was good, pretty much people in the lobby sometimes during the busy hours. English speech was not an issue for the personal. Very nice restaurant employees. The room was... More

Ikebukuro is one of the fastest growing areas in Tokyo, and has really improved immensely over the last few decades and the Prince Hotel couldn't be located in a more convenient place. Right in the middle of Sunshine City you've got immediate access to not only the shopping mall but a great aquarium, a planetarium, a movie theater and even... More

Sunshine City is conveniently located in the bustling Ikebukuro area. Malls and stores are walking distance, and there's a convenience store and money changer machine at the ground floor. Rooms are quite small but comfy. Vendo machines are also found on each floor. The breakfast buffet is also good. The staff also responds immediately to your needs.

This was our first hotel in our trip to Japan. The hotel has quite a few rooms and the reception is always crowded quite like a railway station. We were prepared to see small room sizes in Japan so were it disappointed with the size of the room. We have stayed in smaller rooms in Europe. The decor in the... More

We love this hotel as it is very conveniently located. Sunshine City is just next to the hotel where most of shops give discounts to hotel guest. We took 15 minutes to walk to the train station, on the way there are also some shops and eateries like KFC and Lotteria etc. There is also a 24 hour super mart... More

Ikebukuro is an area of massive development. Several thousand tenants occupy two giant department stores and shopping malls, where all sorts of shopping and gourmet foods can be enjoyed. The 60-story building at the east entrance of the station, Sunshine City, is a landmark within Ikebukuro and features an aquarium, planetarium, theme park as well as an observation platform. The popular name for the western side of this area is "Otome Road" (Maiden Road) and there are many shops selling products related to anime with a female theme.
