This is a reasonably priced hotel for Tokyo, and only a short walk from Shibuya subway station, which is quite convenient for accessing many areas of the city. The front desk staff were pleasant, and the room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. As a female traveling alone accustomed to Japanese business hotels, it was just what I was looking for.... More

Amazing location for visiting Shibuya area! Nice and straight forward hotel. Quick check in/out. Nice staff. Good beds. Great value! Easy walk from Shibuya station, but maybe take a taxi if you have heavy luggage. Quiet in a buzzing district.

This hotel is the best place to stay if visiting Tokyo. Its a few minutes from the shibuya metro and Yamanote ( JR lines ) Stayed there 3 nights. The place is clean, the rooms are decent and convenient. Very quiet despite its location. The price is reasonable.

We reserved a room just a day before our stay since our other plans fell through. Compared to other hotels we stayed at, this was a letdown. At a 200$ price for a double room, the quality is just not nearly enough to justify the cost. The room was cramped, the hallway mats very stained, and the interior was very... More

This hotel ticks all the boxes and then some!! Would highly recommend it as a place to use as a base. It has two restaurants, extremely friendly staff, who go above and beyond to help! Their English isn't bad, not gr8 but they certainly sorted me out with everything I needed to know! The rooms are small but extremely comfortable... More

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

Staying in Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu

Neighborhood Profile
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast, Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool. At the Museum of Yebisu Beer you can learn about the beer that was responsible for the town’s name, and enjoy dining at the popular noodle shops in the surrounding area.
