As Tokyo was the last real stop on my trip around Japan I decided to go boutique instead of business. A mistake. The Granbell Shibuya has great instructions on their website until you are within a few feet of the hotel when it is hard to find. The plants have overgrown the hotel sign!! Look for the Italian restaurant instead.... More

Clean and stylish room. Great in room amenities. Decent breakfast. Superb location but be sure to locate on map and go to correct exit. Shibuya station has several exits and they are far apart. I made the mistake of not locating hotel on map and spent nearly 1.5hours looking for hotel (locals gave confusing directions) plus it was raining. Do... More

We thought the hotel was amazing, right in the heart of the action. The rooms are perfect for base camp and the hotel restaurant and bar are sensational. the staff and food are amazing. I am so glad we stayed here, the batting cage next door was an unexpected highlight

I just spent 3 nights in a single room at the Granbell. If you are a solo traveler, not planning to spend much time in your room, and need a convenient base from which to explore Tokyo, look no further. The room was clean and efficient, quiet and comfortable. It had modern japanese touches and seemed newish. The location cannot... More

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for about a week, with two annexe single rooms. The rooms were comfortable and cozy, small by Western standards, but fine for central Tokyo. While the rooms are starting to show a little bit of age, they are still fine and worth their price. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel... More

We stayed at the hotel for one week while visiting Japan. The room was small for 2 people, there wasn't much walking space or an area to leave the suitcases. The room was clean; however, they only cleaned it once while we were there, which was annoying. The location of the hotel is excellent, you are close to the metro... More

We stayed in a Premiere double room, which was large for Tokyo rooms, and managed to accommodate the baby cot provided for our 2-year old, which was nicely made up with Winnie the Pooh sheets and blanket. If you don't need a cot, there is a small couch and TV, so room would feel very spacious. The bathroom was also... More

Located right in the centre of Shibuya but on a quiet street away from the madness, this is a great hotel with lovely clean and modern rooms. We thought the reception was in need of updating, and the breakfast is not great, however overall this hotel is great value for money compared to other hotels in central Tokyo and we... More

Tokyo hotels can be a challenge, especially at the last minute, and especially more if it's a weekend. So even with the choices being quite slim, I'm extremely glad I found the Granbell Hotel in Shibuya. It's located about 150m from Shibuya station, clean to a fault, and not too difficult to find. The staffs are great and can speak... More

Booked an annex single room and although while a little small, it had everything you could need for a decent hotel stay. The room was spotless and bed was very comfortable. The location was great because it was on a quiet street within walking distance to the activity of Shibuya crossing, restaurants, nightclubs, and shopping. The staff could speak English... More
