I usually stay at hotels in Shinjinku, Ikebukuro is also convenient for shopping and restaurants. The reason to stay there is only the special package of air ticket and hotel is really attractive for few days in Tokyo. The hotel is old. The location is 5 mins walk from Metro Subway and at least 10 mins walk from JR. It... More

The Sunshine Prince could easily be called a "tourist" hotel. When the Toyota Amlux Tech Center (Showroom) with first opened in the early 90's I stayed here because of convenience. Of course, the Japanese Government paid the tab so I did not mind. Returning as a tourist some years later one would expect the place to be modernized with every... More

If I got a choice, I really won't choose this hotel in the first place. I had an ad hoc trip last week end and i booked my air ticket and hotel one day before my trip. Sunshine city Prince hotel was the only choice under USD200 per night in the market in Ikebukuro, that was why I chose sunshine... More

I believe that this hotel was opened back in 1978 when the Sunshine City complex was completed. To some degree this shows -- the hotel is clean, friendly, and efficient but it is definitely dated inside. A thorough renovation would go a long way to making this truly a world-class property. But, for the price that I paid per night,... More

The hotel is situated above the Sunshine prince Mall, which provides an ideal location for tourists as well as business travelers. The rooms are better and connectivity to metro stations is also within the hotel basement itself. Would give 3.5 rating to this hotel. Cherry blossom (Ueno Park) is 10 minutes away, we enjoyed the season during our stay here.

I say this hotel is in a very good location because of the nearby shops, malls, restaurants and railway station (Ikebukuro). For first timers like us, it made it easy for us to roam around with lots of local attractions just by walking (a lot of walking!). Easy for us to buy some souvenirs, too. As for the hotel, I...

This hotel is about a 10 mins walk from Ikebukuro Station. Convenient because the airport limousine bus drops you right in front of the hotel. Hotel is a little old and there is no wifi in the room. Location is excellent! Lots of shopping and restaurants downstairs the hotel. There is also a Family Mart located within the hotel so... More

Very good hotel from the point of view of location, cleanliness, comfort, friendly and helpful staff and reasonable price. there is a shuttle direct from Narita to the hotel. The only downside is there is no WiFi in the rooms - but internet via cable is available so take you adaptor if needed. They say there is WiFi in the... More

Hot tub provided, though very small. Staff are polite and clinical. Has great location, near to Ikibukuru station. However, I had a bit trouble finding the lobby, where is located outside a shopping mall.

Airport 'bus' to/from Airport directly at Hotel. 2 Subway stations just 5-10 minutes walk (lots to see, eat, shop around during the path to subway, whether its underground or above on the streets). Rooms are a bit old, but still clean. Ask for extra pillows. Bring a portable lan to wifi connector. There is a 24 hr Family Mart that... More
