Western travelers, especially American travelers, must understand that Japanese hotel rooms are small for our standards. After spending three weeks traveling throughout Japan, Tokyo was our last stop. The Shinjuku Prince Hotel rooms were exactly the same size room as every other business style hotel we had stayed in throughout our trip.
Shinjuku's main draw is that once you leave the hotel, you are right in the middle of one of Tokyo's main entertainment areas. Countless of restaurants, bars, movie theaters, and stores surround the hotel. One can spend hours just walking around the neighborhood people watching, shopping, and eating.
More importantly, the hotel is next to Shinjuku's train and subways stations. With less that a five minute walk, one can take a train or three different subway lines to anywhere in Tokyo. We stayed in Tokyo for six days and used the train/subway almost everyday. The Shinjuku Prince's location is very convenient.
The rooms we were alloted were modern, classy, and clean. The maids cleaned the room thoroughly everyday and in quintessential Japanese style, left them perfect.
I am very happy with my experience. By booking them through expedia, we also got a tremendous deal.More
