Shinagawa Prince Hotel Review
I have been in Tokyo several times and this is a pleasant surprise. Shinagawa Prince hotel is a pretty great hotel for about US$100 a night (on Sunday) The room size is surprisingly big for a Hotel in Tokyo area.
Shinagawa Prince Hotel is located about within a 3 minute walk of the Shinagawa station which has Yamanote line which can bring you to popular destination like Harajuku, Shinjuku and Shibuya. The hotel is also connected to a shopping mall with a foodcourt, cinema and a bowling alley.
The rooms are relatively big, and the toilet is very comfortable. Unlike many other 3 - 4 star hotels, this hotel provide toothbrush, hairbrush and razor as well. The only thing I'd like is bottled water, but there is a vending machine on the same level and you can get free ice.
I am impressed by the tour coaches that arrive and there are even several tour coaches with wheel chair access that come to this hotel. From Haneda or Narita Airport, the Airport Limousine located at all the different terminals come directly to this hotel, making it very convenient to arrive for your first night or leave on hour last.
You have a big choice for breakfast at several restaurants in the mall, including "Top of Shinagawa" a restaurant on the 39th floor, overlooking Shinagawa. The buffet choices in most of the restaurants are pretty good.
Overall, I'd say this hotel is pretty good value for money. My stay at this hotel is pretty descent and I look forward to come back again.
This is good value for money.
