Shinjuku Prince Hotel
Ranked #12 of 87 Hotels / Ryokan in Shinjuku
Reviewed 12 May 2012

Yes, an average sort of big hotel, with tourists n business travelers. Easy access from the JR shinjuku station, although kind of confusing when you reach the station. Take the east exit, then rather get lost I the underground passages, go up to the open, and walk straight down. The hotel is not quite facing you, but should be relatively easy to spot from the ground level...

Ask around if lost, no one will come to your aid otherwise..

Hotel is nice enough, and lots of restaurants n convenience stores around! 24 hr convenience!

The hotel is 2 minutes to walk from EAST exit of Shinjuku station (perfect). If necessary you can also walk everything underground from Shinjuku station to the hotel.
The rooms in the hotel have a good size, are modern and new and very clean. I would prefer to have a cupboard or some drawers in the room, so that you can store your clothes better tha in your suitcase.
For such modern rooms I missed a WiFi connection in the rooms, WiFi is only available at the reception level (not very convenient).
Around the hotel there are many places to see, eat and for going out.

This hotel is perfectly located - it takes you just 5 minutes to get to the Shinjuku Station from where you can go to most places in Tokyo as many subway and JR railway lines pass it. The hotel is at the edge of the "red light" and gambling district Kabuchiko which is "alive" 24 hours and so it may get a bit louder at the hotel. Anyway, you are in Tokyo and not a rural town... The surroundings of the hotel is safe and it is no problem to walk there at night. There is a shopping mall in the same building.
The rooms are small but clean and modern. The staff are very helpful and friendly though they struggle with English... If it is your first time in Tokyo, don´t hesitate and book this hotel - it is good value for money - could be compared to a better IBIS in Europe....

Room Tip: When you come from Shinjuku station /which is a maze/, look for the exit "east" and the Se...

Originally booked the hotel based on price, and I am very happy I did. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They assisted me numerous times with directions and suggestions, for example, what train lines I needed to take to visit various historical sites within and outside Tokyo. In addition, they quickly replaced the safe (it broke during my stay) in my room, within the hour. The hotel is very centrally located. There are numerous bars and restautants in the surrounding area (which reminded me a bit of Times Square). The hotel is next to the Shinjuku Station (I took the Narita Express to the station) which made travelling within Tokyo and the neighboring areas easier. The room was small though and there is no wifi,

Room Tip: The higher the floor the better, several times I was able to hear the traffic outside the hotel

We chose this hotel because we wanted to stay in Shinjuku. The hotel is awsome: very clean, very close to Shinjuku station East exit. It has a 7 eleven across the street and a mc Donald's. There are also some great restaurants in Shinjuku ( an amazing Thai restaurant 4 min away from the hotel).

Even though breakfast was not included, still the hotel was a very good value for money. The view from our room was superb, they have vending machines on every floor. Room service was very good as well.

Note for those who have celiac disease or are gluten intolerant: there is a cafe in Shinjuku called Bore cafe and their cheese cake is gluten free. Also L'Occitane cafe in Shibuya has the creme brulle GF :)
