I was booked to this hotel because we have some business in Ikebukuro. The hotel is not modern, kinda old, and quite musty. The entrance to the hotel is just a door and it doesn't have the grandiose lobby I was expecting for a big hotel in Tokyo. The receptionist and staff were very helpful and they speak English. They...

This hotel was recommended to me by a travel agency in Hawaii about 5 yrs ago,and ever since then I have been staying at this hotel,although the rooms are a bit small,this did not bother me because I was hardly in the room. The hotel is... More

The hotel room is simple and clean but small compared with other hotels we stayed at but it was so convenient because it is connected to a large shopping mall with a food court. There's a food market in the basement so you can purchase bottled water and other food and snacks.

Not a hotel which caters to English speakers except for groups. But certainly acceptable. Small room, even with two beds. No drawers. No shelves in closet. Had to use smallish love seat for unpacked clothes. Restaurant in basement serves both Japanese and US breakfasts. Nicely situated near Sunshine City Mall and Seibu dept store. Near subway line. Stop for Airport... More

During our recent trip to Tokyo we stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and found the hotel of a very food quality. It has more than 1100 rooms and is part of a big complex which has shopping complex, entertainment centre and an office complex attached to it. Rooms are larger than normally in Japan and have all the... More

We spent three nights at this hotel and was satisfied with the hotel apart from the very poor air conditioning, which if you were visiting in the hotter months might be a problem. However the room was comfortable and clean with the usual tea making facilities,fridge and TV. The buffet breakfast was very good with a good selection of both... More

Because I spent almost two weeks there in 1980, another two weeks in November 2011, and two weeks this April, I feel very much at home in Ikebukuro, especially the Sunshine Prince Hotel. The desk staff has excellent English; the lobby has several Internet terminals; the location is wonderful. That said, the Sunshine Prince has several disadvantages. While it was... More
