Shinagawa Prince Hotel Tokyo
Ranked #39 of 116 Hotels / Ryokan in Minato
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This was the first hotel we went to on our arrival to Japan. We only stayed one night but the room was nice and clean and plenty of toiletries. The hotel is massive and has plenty on site. It is close to the station and round the corner there are a few places to eat and drink. It has its own aquarium and bowling alley and a huge reception area. We didn't get to see much of it as we arrived late in the evening and left by lunchtime.

Fabulous hotel in the heart of Shinagawa. If you're riding public transportation, you can't beat the location. I've stayed in the area in other hotels near the Prince (Keiku EX, Goos), and I've always wanted to stay here. Finally got my chance.

This hotel seems to be all about what tower you stay in. As a single traveler, I chose the rooms in the East Tower, which seems to be the oldest tower on the property. It was a typical "business man" room -- very small and cramped. I could touch both walls at the same time with my arms extended each way. Small window didn't help matters. Odd layout with bathroom at opposite end of the room from the front door. Nevertheless, it was just fine for sleeping. Quiet, comfortable, but cramped. The East Tower elevators are very small. One serves as an express elevator (on the right side), so get on it going down if you can. The other one seemed to stop on nearly every floor on the way down.

Some people in our party were in the Main Tower with double beds, and their rooms were quite a bit nicer. The hotel website clearly details the choices you have. Refrigerators in the room were a nice touch. No wifi in the room was very lame because I was using iPhone and iPad.

As others have mentioned, the Prince offers excellent food choices, entertainment, and shopping options near by. The WING Takanawa shopping area also has a great selection of restaurants, shopping, and Kombini (7-11 is my favorite for quick snack). I like the Shinagawa Kitchen on the 2nd floor of the Prince for the variety of selection. The grocery store adjacent to the station (lower level) was also a great source of yummy take out food. The Limousine Bus is a good option to Narita if you don't want to haul your luggage to the station (and up and down stairs & escalators) for the Narita Express.

Room Tip: Pay more for the main tower or annex tower. Awesome views from high floors.

The Shinagawa Prince hotel is a large complex, with a large range of entertainment and restaurant options and a large range of rooms. We stayed in a very small room in the North tower but it was good value in a good location. We used the subway trains to get around the city.

Thankfully we only use our hotels for sleeping. The Shingawa Prince is directly across the street from Shinigawa Railway on the Yamanote Line which puts it fairly central to everything and easy to get about. We used the "Limosine Bus" to get to/from Narita simply to save carrying luggage from/to the train but either will suffice.
We were housed in the North Tower, one of about 5 'Prince' abodes which gave us a feeling of being seperated from the 'real' hotel. The room was typically pokey with only about 16 sq mtr of space and the propensity of the Japanese to squeeze everything in (a table, chair, desk, TV etc) meant there was no where to move.
The bathroom in this hotel room was like an afterthought. It was a 'slide-in module' that was almost claustrophobic but the hi-tech toilet seat needed a degree to work (heated, bidet etc).
Like most Japanese beds, cement is softer!
Everything was kept clean and serviced and when we needed help (to connect to the 'net & to get extra pillows) the staff were quick & efficient.
Hooking up to the net was in itself typically Japanese. For such a highly technical country wi-fi was not available. A LAN cable was supplied but not that simple (despite instructions) to connect.
Overall, a place to sleep that's not that different to most but it is well positioned.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more and get some space!

Convenient location close to the station. We stayed on two separate occasions. Both times staff only provided the requested double bed after we insisted. Wifi was advertised but turned out to be only usually available in the foyer and not working.

It’s centrally located at the heart of Tokyo. Country like Japan where language is major barrier in communication, you will find this hotel as a relaxed place where most of the staff members will help you in English. Also, they provide the facility of TC conversion. For a first time visitor it’s a project due to language barrier & no local help.

There are four towers in the hotel you can choose as per your budget. In east tower the rooms are quite small but have many benefits of the location. North tower is not recommended. Annex & Main tower are extremely good. Breakfast spread in the east tower coffee shop is excellent & also Hapuna has a great spread.

Altogether, “World Class Experience”

Room Tip: Rooms above 15th floor are quite good with a front view.

I stayed there for three nights as I had meetings in Tokyo in different locations. This hotel is directly at the Shinagawa JR station, there are also shuttles to Narita and Haneda airport. It is close to a mall and therefore very convenient. The rooms are very tidy and clean. There was not a lot of noise, so I slept well. As many Japanese hotels its decoration appears oldfashioned but the furniture is not old. I stayed in the Annex tower, the room was really small. I nearly fell out of the bathroom several times because its floor is 30 cm higher than the bedroom and there is no warning sign. I wonder whether some guest ever broke a leg - it is definitively a possibility. If you travel with big luggage there is no space for your luggage. The cabinet is also small. But this is Tokyo, one of the most expensive cities on this globe. The hotel is quite popular and their main breakfast restaurant is overwhelmed by the number of guests: When you arrive at 7:30 there will be a queue of at least 20-30 people. I decided to try another breakfast restaurant in the East tower which had a decidedly ancient charme. I felt like in a socialist (!) restaurant, never knew the Japanese had it in them. I understood why there was such a long queue at the other restaurant.
The English skills of the personnel are, as nearly everywhere in Japan, not very strong. Would I go back? Yes, value for price is ok and the location is definitively a bonus. Would I go there to give myself a treat? No. It's for business, not more. Did not find a gym, this would be a true delighter for the busy business traveller who has to endure far too many evening dinners.

Room Tip: The higher the better - there is quite some street noise. Take a room in the Annex tower that faces...
