I stayed 6 nights at the Prince Hotel while attending a conference. I paid $150/night including breakfast buffet and free in-room Internet. As others have pointed out, the property needs to be updated to be at the level of a top Tokyo Hotel, but this is a far better value. I would stay at this hotel again for many reasons. Location: it is away from the hustle bustle but walkable to Hibya; subway stop Onarimon on the Mita line is essentially on the property. Peacefulness: Like many Prince hotels, there is greenery on the property. Gorgeous azaleas were in bloom during my trip. You can walk next door to the beautiful grounds of the Zojo-ji Buddhist temple and buy incense from the monks, and access a large park behind it with flower gardens and people walking their dogs. The area is very quiet and you can get a good night's sleep - I heard birds instead of trains in the morning. My room was large enough to do morning yoga and Qi Gong, and I had a great view of the Tokyo Tower (Tokyo's Eiffel). While the hotel restaurants are expensive, there is a Le Pain Quotidien adjacent to the property with that delicious Euro bread and inexpensive red wine - no matter how much you like Japanese food, after 6 days you are ready for something other than salty fish fare! Le Pain is a huge plus in my book. Speaking of red wine, not to mention cheese: there is a Lawson convenience store in the hotel basement, open until midnight you can go down in your slippers! Rooms have refrigerators and hot water makers, and you know you're in a real Japanese hotel when the vending machines have beer. The bus to Haneda and Narita comes to the property. My bus to Narita stopped at a few fancy Ginza hotels, and noticing the crowds and noise I felt happy that I had stayed at the Prince.
