Hotel Review: Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa

For our holiday in Tokyo last year December, we booked Grand Prince Hotel New Takanawa. The hotel is located near Shinagawa station, one of the busiest train station in Tokyo.

We booked this hotel because of its location (at Shinagawa area) and the room size. Our daughter love this hotel because there is beautiful Japanese garden inside the hotel.

The room is clean and spacious and the staff is also very helpful. The hotel also have shuttle bus to Shinagawa station. Access to or from airports is also very convenient because there is direct airport limousine bus from/to the hotel.

For food matters, although the food price in the hotel is very expensive, visitors can find easily food outlets outside the hotel. Convenience store 7-11 is also located at the basement of the hotel.
