“Good Value Hotel at Superbly Prime Location”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

The hotel is located in the heart of Shinjuku. When we are talking about the word 'heart', it sure means a lot. You can basically take a stroll along Tokyo CBD streets right after you step out of the hotel. Yes, it is in very close proximity with the red-light district just across the road where you can hear the sound of pachinko machines echoing throughout the street. However there are numerous food stalls, restaurants and shopping malls nearby to entertain you simply both day and night. The room is pretty small even for a small asian like me, but it is still acceptable though. Ice, water and vending machines are available on my floor (on every floor I suppose). To conclude, it is still a good bargain considering again the location. Undeniably this hotel do live up to its name to be the Prince of Shinjuku.

If you want to be right in the heart of Tokyo, this is a great hotel to use. It is only a block or so from Shinjuku Station, so you have easy access to trains, while it is also only steps from the heart of Shinjuku itself.

Many have noted the rooms are small, but they are surprisingly spacious for the heart of Tokyo - I did not find the size uncomfortably small in any way. The food in the hotel is very average, but there are literally hundreds of bars and restaurants (from tiny to huge) within a couple of blocks.

You won't think of this hotel as the ultimate escape, but you will find it a near-perfect place to serve as a "base" from which to explore Tokyo!

This hotel is on top of shinjuku station, very good location indeed. Only a short walk to malls, shopping area & subway station. Although rooms are small, they are recently renovated. Big bathroom. Room is clean.

Beautiful hotel located very close to station and unfortunately the red light district. Be careful walking through the area next to the hotel. As my boyfriend and I walked through the neighborhood to look for karaoke bars a rather pushy man kept insisting "Everyone needs love in Tokyo" to us. After many no thank you's he got the hint we weren't interested. As for the rooms, you do get an incredible view, the one draw back is that the rooms do smell musty. The hotel provides a scented spray (I called it a Japanese Febreze) :) to spray in the air to rid of the smell. The hotel also gives an incentive of 500 Yen for every day you forfeit room cleaning. If you've never been to Japan remember the rooms are smaller than the average US hotel room.

The deluxe rooms are definitely worth the extra money; they're twice the size of regular rooms and have updated, modern furniture and decor. Even though the hotel is located right next to the train tracks north of Shinjuku, we did not have a problem with noise in our room on the 24th floor, facing the tracks.

Once you make it out of Shinjuku station, the hotel is easy to find and a short walk away. The location is great, and you can easily walk to many places: Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden, the Meiji Jingu shrine, and the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building (to try and catch a glimpse of Mt. Fuji on a clear day). When coming from the airport, we recommend using the Narita Express train (N'EX), which goes directly to Shinjuku station without having to transfer with lots of luggage. When exploring the city, you can easily take the JR Yamanote metro line from Shinjuku to most places you'll want to visit (included in the JR Rail Pass).

The staff was always friendly and helpful, and most of them spoke enough English to handle basic interactions. There is free wireless Internet in the lobby, but not many places to sit, and it's not the fastest connection. If you need more than casual access, you'll probably want to pay for the wired in-room Internet.

Room Tip: If your budget allows, go for a deluxe room and request a high floor (20 and up). Ask for a room tha...

Didnt like the fact that the front desk would allow us to check in ealy, and couldn't exchange the correct amount when I needed to exchange my USD to YEN. Also we're able to go directions on maps to places you wanted to find nearby.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the top have better view

The hotel has been refurbished since I last visited over 10 years ago. The single room is small by western standard yet very well designed. They can even place a small sofa there. Although no in room wifi, they do provide free Internet access. Bring a router with you if you don't to go downstairs for wifi. Maybe a bit of noise due to the entertainment area nearby but location is the best. 10 mins walk from train station (JR and Metro) if you find the correct exit.
