We booked the Tokyo Prince Hotel because we heard the rooms were larger than average at decent prices. This was true but I wouldn't not worth the it. The staff was friendly, it's close to subway stations, views of Tokyo tower, and there is a vending machine that serves beer but those are the highlights.
The hotel is old and in desperate need of a makeover. The sheets, carpet, shower, and sinks were old and dingy. You could tell the room was "clean" but it didn't feel that way. We originally opted for the bigger room without a view but upon arrival, we asked for a view. The only one available was a smoking room. We thought that a room with the smaller, smoking room with a view was better than the big room over looking the empty parking lot. There isn't much to do around the hotel so if you're looking for a hotel with action right outside the door, don't book here. There seemed to be a lot of tour companies having their guests stay here. Every morning, they would be a huge tour bus bringing dozens of elderly tourists to and from. We considered moving to an area with more nightlife but didn't end up moving. After checking out the city, we decided since we like action, people watching, dining out, we should have stayed in Shibuya. Rooms large. Cheap prices. Close to subways.
