Since my first trip to Shibuya, I've been itching to stay at the Shibuya Excel Hotel for it's incredible location. We had already had 8 nights in Shibuya at the Tobu, but had one last night in Tokyo and decided to splurge so went for the Excel.
This hotel is beautiful and fantastically located so we could walk straight off the JR Yamanote line and into the hotel with our luggage. We were a little early (12:30) so the hotel kindly offered to mind our bags.
At 2pm our room was ready and we were on the 15th floor - we caught the outdoor/clear lift which I was a little excited about because of the amazing view it afforded us of Shibuya.
The room was relatively spacious but the bed was smaller than I expected - that said it was a semi-double so I shouldn't have been surprised. The view from our window was great especially at night and the view from the elevator area on each floor is spectacular - the ultimate view of the Shibuya crossing.
I couldn't for the life of me work out the internet - had easy plug in ethernet at every other hotel that worked straight away but this I couldn't figure out. We were only staying one night so I didn't bother to ask staff for help. I did ask staff at reception for help to get to Haneda considering I didn't have the internet and they were incredibly helpful.
This hotel is gorgeous and I was happy enough with it - the room was much bigger and nicer than we had experienced at other places. That said, I think I'd rather keep my money for the shops and stay somewhere smaller/simpler... this was a bit of a splurge. If money is no object, go for it!
