Slightly off the busiest areas so you can actually get some sleep at night. It was perfectly quite in our room on a sat night. within a very short walk to the shibuya crossing and station. rooms were small but clean

There was nothing about this hotel we didn't like! Excellent location, lovely clean room, friendly staff, nice bar/restaurant, free in-room WIFI. I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Tokyo on a budget. Superb value for money. We will be back!

We stayed here recently on our first trip to Japan, and we were very pleased. Helpful and friendly staff. Small bar and restaurant which seems to be quite popular amongst the locals too. Provides free wifi and A/C. 5 minute stroll to Shibuya station. Lots of restaurants, shops and cafes around too.

Twin size beds for number of people in your party. TV only has 5 or so stations. Provided robs and slippers for #of beds and guests. Interesting key system in that you return the key to the front desk when you leave your room. Key controls lights and AC, and needs to be plugged into a place in the room... More

The hotel was indeed in great location, just a small business hotel with not much. The rooms are small but then again its Tokyo...The rooms were pretty bare and a small bathroom. No breakfast included on the stay but there are so many places around the hotel that it was not a deal breaker. The street where the hotel is... More

The staff is very helpful and friendly, at least more than the Japanese polite service. Their level of English is good. The hotel is very well located, some minutes walk away from Shibuya station (which is better than near a bigger station, because Shibuya is a very practical station) very easy to go there and many convenience shops and restaurant...

This hotel is nothing special, but nothing bad. It would have been nice to have a window that wasn't frosted, or which opened, but other than that, it's a teeny but adequate room. I paid about $150/night in mid November.

If you've seen Lost in Translation, you know Shibuya. There are a lot of cool places in Tokyo, but Shibuya is one of the coolest - & craziest. If you're looking to see that side of Japan, Shibuya is the place for you, & this hotel is a basic, no-frills option that is completely reasonably priced. I live in Japan... More

This was a pretty standard city hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly. The location is great for Shibuya and for the station and to get about. It is quiet which is amazing when you look at where it is. Its not cheap for a fairly basic room but then Tokyo is quite expensive and so it really was pretty... More
