My husband and I stayed at this hotel as part of a 5 week trip from the UK to Australia
including stopovers in Hong Kong and Tokyo during October and November.
We caught the airport limousine to the Hotel, took about 1hr 20mins.
Its about 5 mins walk to Shinagawa station.
Stayed for 3 nights, in superior room which was on 11th floor, with balcony and view over the gardens shared with the other Prince hotels
On arrival early morning we paid for a few hours early checkin 1000yen per hour before 2pm.
We also booked through the hotel guest services an afternoon tour with Grayline, to give us a brief look at part of Tokyo
Very nice room huge very comfortable bed and lovely bathroom with Japanese toilet!
All the facilities you would want on a long trip e.g. ironing board
Hotel is huge, free wifi in the lobby, although for the size of the hotel not many seats
We used the Cafe Eidelweiss for breakfast on the floor down from lobby near the exit towards the Station, 1000yen, gave coffee/tea, fruit juice, soup and a choice of three pastries from a large selection. There's also a large buffet restaurant available.
Lots of multinational restaurants on road down to the station less than 5mins walk, we had good meals at the Outback, and next door french restauarant as well as an Italian near the station entrance.
We bought a day ticket on the JR line and used it on the Yamanote circular line and got off/on at various stops along the line before coming full circle back to Shinagawa.
On our 3rd day we had a day trip to Kamakura, which had been recommended to us by a Japanese family we met on our travels in Australia.
Its about 50mins by train and has enough temples to last you a week of sightseeing. We visited two plus the large Budda.
Got the Limo bus back to the airport for our homeward flight, which took around 1hr 40mins in the morning rush hour.
The NEX train does go to / from Narita / Shinagawa but we decided to go door to door and use the Limobus.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The New (Shin) Takanawa Prince Hotel was designed by Togo Murano, one of Japan's leading architects. Every one of his design concepts from the exterior of the grand banquet halls to the restaurant interiors to the handpicked furnishings all harmonize beautifully, despite their different functions.This is the largest hotel in the Takanawa complex and it is a monument to individuality, décor and functionality. Like its other two counterparts, the New Takanawa Prince sits majestically on the beautifully landscaped grounds of a 10-acre Japanese garden. ... more less
