We stayed at their Shibuya hotel for the first time. The location is super convenient and the hotel is really clean! Their amenities are great. We were traveling throughout Japan for 2 weeks so it was nice to be able to use their washing machine! The room was very small and we couldn't even open our luggage comfortably. But we... More

APA hotels are business hotels in the strictest Japanese definition. Small, complete, efficient rooms. These are usually occupied by business people with an overnight bag who need cheap space to sleep and shower and maybe do a little work at night. These types of hotels are great for tourists looking to meet the same basic needs and are willing to... More

Clean, quiet, relative comfortable. I'm deducting 1 'circle' because the bed was lop sided and the pillows terrible. But overall this hotel is good value and great location. It would be nice if they used the air conditioning in the hallways.

Although the rooms are very small, they are very clean and efficient. This hotel was excellent for a short stay (three days) in Shibuya. The staff was very helpful and friendly, and the hotel is less than a ten minute walk from Shibuya station, which makes it very handy for exploring all parts of Tokyo. Lots of food places in...

Close to a cabin hotel, but with your own small toilet and shower. Felt like I was taking a shower in the toilet. More or less impossible to fit two people with luggage in a double room. No view, just one slow elevator, but it was clean and a working wifi.

Tiny, they named it semi-double bed size in a little space. However we have found it somehow cozy, simple, all the amenities you need are provided and location is very convenient. All in all if you not too much of fuss you will definitely enjoy your stay in APA. I wouldn't mind to stay there again.

We stayed here on the first night of our trip to Japan, so we had no idea what to expect. The room was incredibly small, but we managed, despite my American-sized suitcase, and we slept very well. We were impressed with the rather clever ways many things are provided in such a small space. The hotel is very clean and... More

Although this place seems to get a low rating, and perhaps my impression is far more favourable as I had to vacate a another room elsewhere for the night, the APA literally came to my rescue. Firstly, I booked it online for the same night, and there was till no cancellation penalty. Secondly, even as a last minute booking, got... More

I had read the reviews and have stayed in many hotels in Tokyo, so I was expecting a small room, however, for the price, the rooms here were extremely small. I was in a standard double room on the 6th floor. I can only imagine how small the semi-double rooms must be! That being said, the bed was comfy, the... More

APA Hotel is located in a great part of Shibuya and is within walking distance of the Shibuya train station and various attractions. The hotel is affordable, the wifi is complimentary, the staff is bilingual and friendly, and the property is clean. My room was small, but that is expected in Tokyo. The bed was comfortable, the TV worked, the... 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.
