I stayed at Princess Garden for 2 nights on a last minute booking in May 2012.
The points below are things I noticed and/or thought came in handy. It is quite fancy when u walk in- esp with that pond of giant Koi fish they do in the foyer.
Below are the cons:
-Potentially small for Westerners. If you go in with the mindset that small rooms are the norm in Japan, then you might see the novely in it.
-Bathrooms are even smaller. I found the capsule-style funny and çruise-ship like.
-No coffee! It's Green tea instead.
-Beds are quite stiff!!! Again, that's the Jap norm.
-The shower head is small! You may have to do a rotations to fully shower!
-No iron/ironing board
-Very close to Meguro station - as mentioned by someone else, about 7mins, maybe 5mins if u walk fast. (Best advice for first time Tokyo travelers- stay close to a Yamanote line station!)
-Deep bath that covers ones entire body! I am 5"3 tho..
-The bedside table wired up with switches for every room function- soooo handy!
-Efficient front desk staff
-Good value for a safe and conveniently located hotel
-Convenience store across the road
-Cigarette vending machine in the foyer
-Phone card vending machine and phone in the foyer
-There are still smoking room options!
I didn't ask about Wifi (sorry) as I was too busy seeing Tokyo.
This place is 'basically' excellent.
