“SIMPLE HOTEL CLOSE TO SHIBUYA”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Simple but clean hotel, close to Shibuya station, on the main road Roppongi-dori. We stayed here for three nights primarily because we used to live about 250 metres from the hotel and so know the neighbourhood. Rooms are fine, very clean, but, as usual in Japan, not large. We ate three breakfasts and had one dinner in the hotel -- food was perfectly adequate, especially the Japanese pork cutlet dinner (donkatsu, priced at Yen 1400 for a very good set meal). It helps to speak some Japanese, since I don't know how much English the reception and restaurant staff have. Virtually all the clientele is Japanese. Price relatively low for Tokyo (about Yen 15000 per night). Close to two decent restaurants, both Italian (a pizzeria opposite the hotel; the famous Antonio just 100 metres up the road), but it is essentially a quiet residential area, although a walk to Shibuya station (15 mins away) gives plenty of eating options of all types.

Finding the hotel can be a bit difficult, it's a 15 minute walk from Shibuya station along a main road. Getting a taxi is probably a better idea. The hotel itself is decent, no-frills accommodation, with slightly dated decor and small rooms. It is close to a few offices so we did see a few business travellers. Although free wi-fi is advertised, it is generally difficult to get a good signal, and there was none in the room at all. Still, not a bad base if you're staying for a short while, but nothing worth raving about.

I stayed Shimane Inn Aoyama for one night. The hotel was located very close to the office I had business meeting on that day and that was the main reason I chose this hotel.
I walked from Shibuya station to the hotel which took me around 15 minutes.
There aren’t too many interesting things around the hotel so I would recommend this hotel for business travelers.
The hotel is well maintained and staffs are willing to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
The rooms are okay but there were some stains on the bed sheet.
Despite some downsides, the hotel is very competitively priced so although it is not a perfect hotel, it is worth considering.

This hotel is alright in general but not top notch. The rooms were basic (but pretty clean) and the location is so-so. Some staff members were nice but one was pretty rude (check out now!).

Overall, you could stay here if you're looking for something decent in this area, but you shouldn't go out of your way to stay here.

This is a nice business hotel within walking distance of Shibuya train station, or if you have bags, 1 bus stop. It is a 5 minute walk to the Japanese Red Cross Medical Center. I highly recommend this hotel. My only complaint was occasionally spotty Internet access, but it's free.
