Old hotel - No privacy and Security

Feb 16th, 2020

Hotel is situated in the heart of Ikebukuro. The building is big but very old. The shopping mall just downstairs which I like. However the wall is really thin which I can’t believe, you’ll feel no privacy as you can hear the next door the people talking. The service staffs is hospitality and they provide shuttle bus to airport. Compare the price and room, I would choose other new hotel to stay. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Downtown Hotel

Feb 13th, 2020

Stayed in this hotel with a group. Hotel is nice. Staff is helpful and gave us 15 rooms on the same floor which is commendable. The hotel is in close proximity to the all the market places, pubs and cafes. The rooms are small and bathroom is also very small. In fact on the entire floor they had the same room size. The breakfast spread was elaborate. Hotel is attached to the mall which was a plus point. Overall a decent place however prices are on the higher side. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Rooms are very warm

Jan 20th, 2020

The location of this hotel is good. Many shops and dining options. 5 mins from Higashi-ikebukuro station but almost 17 mins to JR Ikebukuro station. Check in time is early at 2 pm but so is check out time at 11am. Lifts to rooms are slow and always packed in the mornings. Service at breakfast is lacking but at check in and out, service is good. Breakfast is nothing to rave about. Better to eat out. The rooms are very small. Feels like a cabin on board a cruise boat. Bathroom seems prefabricated. My biggest grouse is the temperature. There are no windows and there is no air con during winter. Airflow is bad. Central heating is too hot and stuffy. Most uncomfortable. Read many complaints on this but nothing has been done. Not staying again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Sunshine City

Jan 11th, 2020

The experience was good. Spent 4 nights there.Got lost a couple of times in the hotel and had trouble figuring out how the elevator works because some of the lifts only go to certain floors. The staff was so polite and respectful. The food was ok! Close to a shopping mall which was plus points. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Sunshine City Prince - Revisited

Jan 1st, 2020

My family of four stayed at the Sunshine City Prince Hotel on 12/4/2019-12/12/2019. This was the second time we’ve stayed at the Sunshine Prince. Check-in was quick and easy without any issues. Our 2 rooms this year were for the City Floor Twin Room B configuration on the24th floor. We had the twin Type C configuration last year. The additional cost for the B configuration was well worth it. Room B is a traditional side by side bed configuration while Room C is an end to end bed configuration. Room B is also about 50 square feet larger. The beds were firm and 2 pillows were provided per bed. Both pillows were very flat and my wife and I ended up having to use our travel pillows in order to provide adequate support. The rooms had a small desk, a small refrigerator, a small open closet area (in one of the 2 rooms), and a safe. The TV was approximately 32” with just one station that broadcasted in English (NHK). The bathroom had a small counter and a combo shower/tub. Water pressure was very good as was the water temperature. Climate control for the room was not good. There was no way to turn on the AC and there was no ventilation in the rooms so the rooms were constantly warm and stuffy (~75 degrees). Wi-Fi was excellent; we were always able to connect to the internet and we did not experience any dropped connections while we were there. Housekeeping was excellent as was the hotel staff (very friendly and they speak English). Despite our issues with the pillows and climate control, the location of the Prince still makes it an ideal hotel to consider. It’s proximity to the Sunshine Mall (convenience store, restaurants, souvenir stores), the Sunshine Strip (stores, eating establishments, game arcades), and closeness of the subway stations can’t be beat. The Airport Limousine also drops off and picks up directly from the hotel. I highly recommend the Sunshine City Prince Hotel and look forward to staying there again in my future visits to Tokyo.
