The Shinjuku Prince Hotel is a bustling and popular hotel with reasonable rates in East Shinjuku just steps from Shinjuku Station.
With rates at the lower end of the moderate range, the Shinjuku Prince Hotel gets good marks for value. It’s also extremely convenient to Shinjuku, being located just to the north of the station, across one main street. And, while technically in Kabukicho, it’s on the edge, so you don’t have to walk through any seedy areas to get there.
The rooms are pretty much standard for business hotels in Japan, meaning small but efficient, with everything you need for a short stay.
The hotel is extremely popular with East Asian visitors, which can mean that the lobby is crowded with people lugging big suitcases and talking loudly into cell phones and, occasionally, noise in the halls.
But, if you are looking for reasonable rates near to Shinjuku Station, this is a decent choice.
