Summary

The “Shinjuku Prince Hotel” is built in a very convenient location, but it has been a while since the hotel opened, so the rooms were a little old. You can hear the sound of trains from the outside and you can hear voices and noises coming from the corridor. The lobby floor was renovated and beautiful, but the rooms were a bit disappointing. Because it is connected to the station, there are many people waking around in the morning and evening which is commuting hours. I recommend this hotel for those looking to stay at a hotel in a convenient location.
