Pretty Average and dated 3 star Hotel. The pro cons are 1.is next to a shopping mall thus extremely convenient 2. All amenities are provided except for an iron and ironing board 3. Pretty good selection of international buffet breakfast. However is a three star hotel thus, the furnishing and room is pretty much of a 3 star expected standard.... More

The Sunshine City Prince is pretty okay. My whole band stayed here, and we were impressed with how cheap it was for Tokyo. It conveniently connects to Sunshine 60 and to the subway system. If you rent a room at either end of the floor, it's closer to American standards in terms of size (i.e. two beds, a bathroom you... More

The carpet and bed covers have never been changed since i've been staying there and are now stained and filthy, rare for Japan. I mean the... More

We slept in a 3 bed room which is bigger than the normal 2 bed room. Then the hotel is connected to sunshine 60 mall which is big and is connected to a street full of shops. We took a whole day trying to explore the whole street but our legs couldnt take it. Great place to stay.

Hotel is just beside a huge mall (Sunshine 60) so you can do your shopping and dining there. Also there's a FamilyMart at the lobby for your on the go purchases. A 5 minute walk will also bring you to Sun City streets and 10minutes to Ikebukuro MRT station. The hotel room is quite small and looks old already but... More

The hotel is actually quite a distance from JR Ikebukuro (East exit) and not so direct route as we have expected. One has to walk some 400m across the always-crowded Sunshine Dori St and then go through an underground passageway (beside the Tokyu Hands bldg) to Sunshine City. On our arrival we have to lug our bags through one of... More

I was there with a group and we all stayed on to 20th floor. The rooms aren't large, but it was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was quite good and and they have a family market shop on the ground floor. Also attached is the mall so plenty of options available. Close to Sun City streets and subway. Wifi was free...

It was my first time in Japan and I had quite high expectations based on the photo and their website. But the hotel room was too small for me and my hubby, low ceiling and quite tight for two. It was a promotion price maybe that’s why it is like that. It didn’t really matter since we are there not... More
