We stayed at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa for 8 nights in April 2013. The room itself was big and spacious with comfortable beds, a balcony (our only wish is that we were on a higher floor as we didn't have much of a view), and the kimonos were a nice touch and great to put on at the end of the day. The rooms were cleaned well too. Some of the staff spoke better English than others, and were always compliant and hardworking. They rang our tour operators for us whilst we were out one day to confirm we would be going on our trips. We didn't try the restaurants, only the bakery at the front of the hotel which did a breakfast deal of three pastries and unlimited drinks for 1000 yen. Their pancakes were amazing too. The shops in the hotel opened later (10am) so we didn't get a chance to look round because we were out all day. Our only negative is that there were no English channels on the tv, not even news channels, but the Japanese games shows were quite amusing even if we couldn't understand what was going on. The Japanese garden in the middle of the hotel and nearby hotels was beautiful, we went there on our last day and it felt so peaceful and quiet. Shinagawa station is a 5 minute walk down the road, very convenient, and there is a mall with lots of souvenir shops across from the station. There's also a TGI Fridays and an Outback Steakhouse within a 2 minute walk. Overall, this hotel is in a great location, the service was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We would recommend this hotel and we would return if we ever decided to visit Tokyo again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The New (Shin) Takanawa Prince Hotel was designed by Togo Murano, one of Japan's leading architects. Every one of his design concepts from the exterior of the grand banquet halls to the restaurant interiors to the handpicked furnishings all harmonize beautifully, despite their different functions.This is the largest hotel in the Takanawa complex and it is a monument to individuality, décor and functionality. Like its other two counterparts, the New Takanawa Prince sits majestically on the beautifully landscaped grounds of a 10-acre Japanese garden. ... more less
