We spent four nights in this hotel as a couple. It was clean, modern and in a great location close to the main intersection of Shibuya. However as everyone else here has noted it is ridiculously small and I would only recommend staying if there's nothing else available in the area (which is why we ended up there). It is... More

The word "small" might be too big to describe the rooms at the APA so travel light. If you can get passed the size of the room, the beds are good, the location is excellent and the place is clean. Breakfast, avoid unless is free.

Yes I know Tokyo is expensive but for USdlr 300 per night I didnt expect to get a room so small you could not even move with 2 adults and luggages. The bed was meant for a single adult, period. A large window only to see an office about 10 feet away. There was no seat at hotel lobby, in... More

I'd recommend this hotel, it's only a short walk to the Shibuya Crossing there are lots of nice bars and restaurants within a few minutes’ walk. It's really reasonably priced, the decor is modern and the entire hotel is really clean. The rooms are small, especially the bathrooms but it's Tokyo - they are known for having "capsule" rooms aka... More

The location was great in Shibuya but the room was disappointing. The lobby was absolutely beautiful when you walk in but once you go up the elevators to the room it is a disappointment. The room smelled like someone was smoking on the bed and the space is so tight.

The room was small but we had expected that so no surprises. It was clean, modern, in a good location, the double bed was comfortable (even with 2 (slim) people) and the shower was great! The basics were all covered. You won't want to spend much time in your room but you can certainly get away with that in Shibuya,... More

Stayed at this hotel once again. Hotel is located at the heart of Shibuya. Easy accessibility, to nearby restaurants, Shibuya shopping street. You can cover couple of places on foot, like Meiji Shrine, Harajuka (Takeshita Street). Shibuya metro station is 10 mins walk. You can get metro train to almost all locations & direct train to Narita international airport. Internet... More

Maybe it's because we got hosed on the price- we were in Tokyo for new year's and we paid almost $300/night for a semi-double. We paid about the same at the luxurious Gate in Asakusa, which was a total winner. The APA was not. First, I will say that the staff at the front desk was sweet and accommodating, even... More

Stayed here for two nights on a business trip. Location-wise it is excellent - surrounded by shops, restaurants and near to the Tokyo station where you take the Shinkansen to Narita airport. The hotel restaurant was pretty decent too; moreover it is open till pretty late so great for a late-night dinner when you land in Tokyo. Internet connection was... More

I went to Japan in September. I wanted to be in the city without paying much. This hotel was very good. I was small but since i was alone, i was largly enough. The place was very very clean. the bathroom, the bed. I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5 because of the size of the room. Other than that,... 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.
