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.

The hotel is centrally located in the shopping area of Ikebukuro. There were a few things that made me give it a poor review. First the A/C is centrally controlled, not individual units like other hotels. This means you cannot control the A/C or heating. We experienced this

I was advised that hotel rooms in Japan are smaller than western hotels and that I might not have as much space as I am used to however it still didn't prepare me for the incredibly small room. Only 2 coat hangers which I was advised was standard - reception staff looked

How do you get to the hotel from Narita Airport
The best way of transportation is taking a Narita Express train for Ikebukuro station. After getting off a train, walk to east exit of station and along Meiji street to the hotel. It takes 5 mins from the station. Check train timetable on Google in advance as they have a few of trains for Ikebukuro an hour depend on your arrival time . Alternatively, you can get a limousine bus for SunShine Price hotel.But I do not recommend you it because you need to walk to from Sunshine in with baggage. If you have further question, please email to the hotel directly. We look forward to seeing you then. Shoichiro Ogata The hotel manager

I stay in the hotel for 5 night .The air con cannot change the temperature and my family members can't sleep for the whole night and I go down to the counter request to open the window and help me to control the temperature to be cooler at 5am on 1/7 morning.....but the reception go up to my room and say maybe my family members turn the temperature to warm,so my room is so warm.... I say no because we can't sleep for whole night and he just help me to open the window and say to me other room guest say the air con is too cold for them.....my God...The attitude of the reception is not good.
