“Purple Rein at the Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The Hotel was very accommodating. The rate included free WiFi and an awesome breakfast buffet. I recommend getting a room as high up as you can, ie, 15th floor on the side with the view of the Tokyo Tower and the Tokyo skyline. The rooms have balconies and the night view of the illuminated Tokyo Tower is breathtaking. And, how can you possibly go wrong when your toilet seat is heated. There is a free shuttle service to and from the Shin station. There are many Grand Prince hotels in Tokyo, so make sure you choose the New Takanawa. I don't think you will be disappointed.

Room Tip: Get as high up as you can and stay on the side of the hotel with a view of the Tokyo Tower.

Part of the big maze in Shinagawa. Very very huge lobby and they have their own small 7-11. Save me from spending 15 minute walking down to the 7-11 at Shinagawa Prince hotel or Shinagawa station. Hotel do sell stamps, should you need to post letters of post card

This hotel is part of a big hotel complex in Shinagawa and seems designed to cater for big conferences. Nevertheless, it is a good choice close to Shinagawa station. Rooms are spacious and have all the basic stuff you need, including free WiFi. Breakfast was good and there is a convenience store within the hotel.

Stayed at Grand Prince New Takanawa Hotel for 2 nights. This hotel had a huge lobby! And free wifi at your room, which was of course awesome.

What I like about this hotel is that its quite near the Shinagawa Station, approximately 15minutes depending on how fast you walk. Some restaurants are also near the vicinity such as TGIFridays, a Singapore restaurant, and a Steakhouse.

Inside the hotel, there's a small 7-11 convenience store where you can buy bottled water (safer), a nail salon, souvenir shop etc. There were also restaurants below the hotel where we ate our breakfast.

The rooms were clean and neat. They provided pillows and fluffy comforters. Haha I was able to sleep well for 2 nights.

The downside of the hotel: there's a small balcony from my room overlooking the hotel's pool.. And oh my!! it was a very dirty pool!!! Nobody dares to swim there coz nobody cleans it.


Overall experience is good.

We have spent here seven nights. The Staff is absolutely wonderful, the rooms are big, we have a double bed room (non-smoking) with a balcony. When I opened the closet the first day I found PJ's and sleepers for our use, which is rare in the US. Also, all kind of toiletries. Good Wi-Fi signal. This hotel is well located, within walking distance to the subway (Shinagawa Station) and the Rail Station.convenient to Shinagawa JR station although the hill to the hotel with luggage can be a challenge. My only complaint is that I had a hard time booking a tour, first I couldn't communicate in English with the lady at the desk. Also, it appears that they deal with only one travel agency who most of the time has not availability. In addition the swimming pool is not open until July 1 and to go to the gym you have to go to one of the other Prince Hotel and pay.

I am a business traveler and this hotel is basically not what I was expecting.It seems to mostly cater to large tourist groups and this was detrimental to my experience. For instance there was a HUGE line (>30 min) waiting for having breakfast in the morning at both the restaurant offering breakfast. Had to go to the local Lawson and get a bottle of orange juice and some plastic wrapped food for breakfast. Concierge was overwhelmed and clearly not up to the kind of tasks a business traveler would ask. Getting a taxi was also a pretty difficult task. In a nutshell, not recommended for business travel.

I stayed there for a night, the room is more spacious than I expected.... Nice hotel room with clean sheets... Stayed on the lower floor so nothing much to see... However the hotel is rather big, it took a good 5 minutes to walk from room to the place we had our breakfast.

Breakfast spread of nice... not too much variety though.

Room Tip: It is near Shinagawa station but its not near town.
