Hotel is clean and safe,, very friendly staff.. Facility is provided to leave your big baggages at the hotel when you want to travel to other city light. Family mart in the hotel and smoking area at the lobby. Smoking rooms are available.. but as all Japanese rooms they are very small unless you upgrade your room.

I had never booked at the Sunshine Prince Hotel and as always going into another country, you are always worried if the pictures were true to real life. But we were very happily surprised, the hotel was great! We upgraded to the Newly Renovated Rooms,...

Location: The location is good for people taking limousine bus as it is linked the hotel to and from the airport. Besides, it is only 8 mins walking distance to Ikebukuro Station, it is convenient to take JR or...

I really was not dissapointed, when I chose to stay in Sunshine City Prince Hotel at Ikebukuro, Tokyo, during my holiday with my family, even though for semi double room we booked seemed to be very small. But with all the amenities and the good services rendered, we really enjoyed staying at the hotel. The location was superb within all...

The location is right at the shopping district of Ikebukuro. It is within walking distance from the train stations. It is connected to the Sunshine City Shopping Centre which has a lot of good restaurants and interesting shops. The hotel rooms are old. The hotel was undergoing renovation when we were there. So several sections were out of bound. The...

This Prince hotel is adjacent to Sunshine City and in business for years. No complaint about the location - connected to Sunshine City which is a nice shopping mall with average priced clothing and different choices of restaurants.
