We stayed 2 nights at Sunshine City Prince, a reasonably good hotel conveniently located in the city. It has 30 plus floors and over 1000 rooms. The hotel does not pretend to be above its class as evident by its simple, basic and clean lobby. A large percentage of its business is derived from conducted tour groups, so do expect a busy and crowded lobby. Although our rooms were small, but at least there were clean with comfortable bed. Our rooms had a wonderful view of the city. Perhaps the best selling point for this hotel is its location. It is located within 5-10 mins walk from Ikebukuro station, next to shopping mall called Sunshine City, and a 24-hour Seiyu supermarket is to be found behind the building. Exit the hotel front entrance, turn right and walk around 10-15mins, one would find Ikebukuro station as well as big departmental stores such as Seibu, Loft and Parco. Many smaller shops and restaurants are to be found in this area. Take the opportunity to visit MacDonald just opposite Seibu and try a pork burger (unique product as not many of their branches actually have this on their menu). If convenient is the key in choosing a hotel, then look no further then Sunshine City Prince.

Joined a group tour to Japan for 5 days and stayed at Sunshine City Prince for 2 nights. The hotel is big and busy with over 1000 rooms. We stayed in a standard twin room on 22nd floor. The room's small but clean and well equipped with all necessary amenities. The best thing about this hotel is its convenient location. 24-hr convenient store on the hotel lobby and also 24 hour SEIYU supermarket within easy walking distance. It's also only a few minute walk from various department stores, and train station.

I have stayed at this hotel 4 times over the last 6 years. Its getting a little tired now and I will look elsewhere next time. The twin rooms are very small and the room furnishings are looking pretty worn. It has over a thousand rooms but its a dumping ground for large tour groups.
The ONLY good thing about this hotel is its location. Situated just 5 minutes walk from the Ikebukero train station; a major hub for many lines. it is also only minutes from the huge Seibu and Tobu department stores. In addition it is located right next to Sunshine City, a huge shopping centre and it has a wonderful 24 hour supermarket across the road where you can buy the nicest freshly prepared food and heat it up in the microwaves provided. So if you can stand the rooms being small and on the dingy side; and you didn't pay too much, it does have advantages.

Stayed 6 days this April 2012. The room and bathroom smell musky, beds and carpet had seen better days. Elevators is like riding the subway or train during rush hours except you had to squeeze between luggages too.
There are no frills or service to talk about at this hotel and I would leave it at that. The only saving grace for this hotel is its close proximity to restaurants, shops and Ikebukuro station about a good 5 to 8 minutes walk.

Stayed here in April 2012. It was a good stay for 2 nights. The hotel has 24/7 mini mart at basement. Next door is a big department store. There are many nice places such as wine shop, fashions and restaurants.

The restaurant at basement has great buffet. Steak, Sushi, King Crab and desserts.

If you like Tokyo, stay here for convenient and you can spend the rest of your time for traveling in Tokyo.

PS. the room is small as everybody mentioned but it has everything you needed, shampoo, toothbrush, even a razor and shaving cream are free.
