The room was extremely clean. It wasn't as small as I thought it was going to be - there was plenty of room. Breakfast was included which wasn't a great sized portion (you had to choose from a menu, no buffet) but lots of tea, coffee and fresh orange juice. The reception staff were helpful in giving directions and recommendations.... More

Very nice, modern hotel that's very close to the Shibuya train station, making it really easy to get there from the airport. The only thing is that the station is huge, so although you're really close to the hotel it can take a long while (took me more than a half hour!) to figure out which exit to go out... More

Great location from Haneda airport (easy to find 10 minute walk from the Cerulean tower hotel by airport limousine). Also quick walk to Shibuya subway station, to Shibuya crossing and nearby lots of restaurants. Tons of shopping also within a short distance of the hotel. We walked to Harajuku area and that was less than a 30 minute walk away.... More

Although the room was a little small, it is well located to the main hub of Shibuya and train lines (JR aswell as metro). It was very clean and well presented, staff were friendly and helpful. We did find it a little difficult to locate but that was due to our own navigational skills after a long flight, however a... More

The Shibuya Granbell is a small hotel located about 3 minutes from the Shibuya Metro and JR stations. If you're trying to figure out where in Tokyo to stay, Shibuya is always my choice. You can get virtually anywhere from the Shibuya station, so it's a great launching point, and Shibuya has more restaurants, bars, entertainment venues and shopping areas... More

Convenient location 2 minutes away from the train station, lovely staff that get a special shout out for helping me with a passport drama with clean and tidy rooms. Hotel is definitely all you need for a stay in Tokyo - a comfortable bed in a good location. Although we did find the airconditioning seemed to be set at heating... More

It is the middle of the night as I write this review... And venting is the only thing on my mind right now... The Air con cooling system isn't working and the heater seems to be working overtime (it feels far worse than the Indian summer - and suffocating! ) While the management helped by opening the windows in my...

This was our second stay at Granbell and we were just as happy as the first time. The hotel is located nearby to the Shibuya crossing. There's a family mart convenience store nearby and plenty of restaurants to choose from. The included buffet breakfast is more than sufficient and the rooms are modern, clean and quiet. The staff are very... More

This hotel was ideal for our stay - perfect location, great price and very comfortable. The rooms are small but with key amenities and right in the heart of Shibuya (near the train station, etc.). The staff were very helpful and the rooms were quiet. Breakfast was good - esp. the buffet on the main floor of the hotel. We... More

What a great little hotel! Newly renovated, modern chic rooms - a little on the small side but the norm for Tokyo! Great location, walking distance from all that lively Shibuya has to offer. Super friendly staff. A great experience, highly recommended.

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.
