As a product of Japan, I recall Sunshine City as the next big thing back in 1978. Back then, everything here was new, modern and exciting. But visiting the area and this hotel in particular in 2015, nearly 40 years since its prime, it's clear that time has taken its toll. The hotel lobby and the hallways feel aged. No... More

We had a string of bad hotels on this trip to Japan, mainly due to space issues but this hotel was amazing. First of all the staff here are excellent and made us feel very welcome. The location is prime! Short walk to the main Ikebukuro area where there is everything to do. Lots of shopping, restaurants, arcades, you name... More

The hotel is very busy, full of tour groups from all over the world. Sometimes getting an elevator was hit and miss. The room we had was very average, the chair fabric was ripped and stained, the curtains had rips in them and the furniture had water stains or some sort of stain on them. The room was bigger than...

This place is a mad house of tourists from all over. The lobby area is usually full of tour groups coming in and out. Stay away if you are looking for a peaceful, quiet place. As for the room, this is not the Hyatt, Ritz, or anything close. Think Motel 6ish. The bed won't fit two people comfortably unless you... More

The hotel is conveniently located where all that actions in Ikebukuro and only 500m away from the train station, 5-10min walk. If you're coming with the Limousine bus, this would be convenient from the airport, coming by train, it might be tough on the first try. The hotel has lots of group tour crowds at the lobby, I've seen Philippines,... More

Hotel is accessible from airport via Airport Limousine. It stops in front of the hotel which is good news if you have large luggages. Check-in and check-out was fast and hotel staff were easy to communicate with in English. We were assigned in the 14th floor and as expected, the rooms were tiny. However, compared to Hong Kong hotels, I... More

Very large Western style hotel adjacent to a huge shoppng mall. Caters mainly for tourist groups. A nice feature is the Airport Limousine Bus which leaves directly from the hotel (and can be booked at reception). Rooms are very small, but yet contains next to the beds a small desk. The bedding gives a bit the feeling of a tent:... More

Have always stayed in this hotel though it's abit run down. Usually packed with group tour in the lobby, however for FE travelers, this is the most convenient hotel to stay as there is airport limo to/fro. Lugging yr luggages thru the train stations is no jokes, so this is the best hotel to stay! Free wifi in the room,... More

Staying in Ikebukuro

Neighborhood Profile
Ikebukuro
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. It has rapidly become the worldwide headquarters for ‘otaku’ or geek culture.
