I stayed at Shinjuku Granbell for 2 nights (22-24 Feb 2015) and we booked the non-smoking economy double room. The hotel is new and service at the reception was fast and friendly (do note that we also checked in quite late, around 9pm). In gist, the hotel is great but the location was so-so. The hotel is located in the... More

Stayed five nights at this hotel. Room was OK, but not like the ones pictured on their website, but it was still adequate and large by Tokyo standards, but I had a double room with two beds. Morning breakfast was just ok. Surprised that their was no fresh fruit. Did have the standard running scrambled eggs and pork links and... More

Nice hotel with a great location. Vending machines in the lobby, wifi in the rooms, great and helpful staff (Who booked us tickets for the Robot Restaurant). The roof top bar has a fantastic view, staff wasn't the quickest but were friendly. I'd definitely stay here again if I decide to come back to Tokyo.

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights at the granbell and we loved it! It was easy to walk to from the main Shinjuku station(with our luggage) and easy to find. The staff were terrific. Their English was excellent and their local knowledge was great. Tomo was particularly helpful. We were very happy with our rooms. Compact, yet elegant... More

Difficult to find hotels in Tokyo which are not priced in mega bucks. This is a very new hotel with a nice modern feeling. Great views of Shinjuku tho I wasn't overkeen on the love hotels nearby but it's near Kabukicho so unavoidable really. Hotel roof bar was great - nice atmosphere and amazing views. Room was a little small... More

Shinjuku Granbell is a modern Hotel nestled away in the backstreets of Shinjuku. It's Really close to the Metro station and a short cab ride or moderate walk from Shinjuku Station. The room was fairly small but it's pretty much what I expected in tokyo for that price (We got the second smallest one). There isn't much room around the... More

This seems to be a new hotel surrounded by many other love hotels. However the area is safe and just 3 mins walk from the metro station. If you are coming from the main Shinjuku station be prepared for up to 15 mins walk. I got the second smallest room and it was still pretty small but comfortable. Just don't... More

Tiny rooms, but very clean and well-designed compact layout, well-equipped toiletries. Contrary to some of the reviews here, there is a bathroom blind for the glass window in my bathroom. There is no closet space to hang our jackets or clothes, just live directly out of our suitcases. 2 persons is just manageable at a squeeze. I like the pajamas/yukatas... More

In Tokyo hotel rooms tend to be very small so be prepared for that. No proper wardrobe or cupboard for your clothes and barely any place to out your suitcase. Located in a very busy nightlife area (but perfectly safe) it's still a very quiet hotel. Staff are nice but I always find issues with communications. For ex I was... More

I stayed at Granbell for two nights on my way home from skiing in Niseko and found it to be lovely. The beds were comfortable, decor of the rooms exceptional and clean, our view was great and the staff were very helpful and could speak excellent English. The location is also great too - it is just minutes walk from... More

Neighborhood Profile
Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.
