My family of 3 adults stopped for 2.5 days in Tokyo on our way from Montreal to Thailand as a small gesture of solidarity with the Japanese people. We booked a triple room with bath Japanese-style for 2 nights.
From Narita airport we took the Airport Limousine Bus to Cerulian Hotel in Shibuya at 18:30, we could have walked to Fukudaya hotel from there, but as it was raining and the sky was getting dark and with all the luggage, we've decided to take a taxi and it costs 740 yen as stated in the hotel web site. You better print the map and the address in Japanese of the hotel (from its web site) and show it to the taxi driver, that will definitely help him/her to locate the hotel. But afterwards, we always walk from/to the hotel to/from the Shibuya station along the Tamagawa dori (or RTE-246) and Dogenzaka dori (dori means street). The walk is pleasant and it takes about 10 to 15 mins depending on your pace and charges. My son spent a lot of time taking pictures of the crossing at the Shibuya station near the Hachio statute. You get a very good view of the crossing from the window on the 2nd floor of the Starbucks at that corner.
We arrived at the hotel around 18:40 and were greeted by 2 very lovely and helpful ladies. We got a very clean room with all 3 futons set. When we told them that we will go to Shinjuku station, they gave us the code to the door so that we can stay out late, and they volunteer to lend us the umbrellas as it kept raining as well as the maps .... The next morning we met the owner of the inn and this gentleman speaks English very well. He is also as nice as the 2 ladies.
The hotel is in a very good location. Apart from the surrounding areas of the Shibuya station, from there you can walk to Yoyogi Olympic Stadium, Yoyogi Parc, Meiji shrine, Harajuku station, Takeshita dori (the shopping street of young people), Omotesando dori, and Aoyama dori. Just the location is worth the price. The owner and staff are all friendly, nice and helpful, asnd the room is kept clean. As their first visit to Japan, my wife and my son really enjoyed the stay in this hotel and we would certainly come back again.
