Hotel Century Southern Tower
Ranked #2 of 28 Hotels / Ryokan in Shibuya
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Hotel is in a great location right near the busy Shinjuku station. The rooms are medium sized for Tokyo, clean and quiet. The bar in the lobby has a great afternoon tea service and there are several high end restraunts on the 19th floor with very good food. Lots of great shopping near by as well. I enjoyed my stay here.

Stayed in a the larger non-renovated room, and it felt dated. Room was clean but the furnishings seemed like you were transported to the late 80s. Not bad but not my cuppa. Tried to get another room but it was fully booked. Aside from this, the room was clean, internet speed good and the shower pressure and temperature good. Staff aren't the most friendly though and there's no porter service (they have self-serve trolleys). There's also no 24hr room service (they have vending machines and a corner kiosk apparently). Not really what I expected for the price we paid. Location though is superb. Easy to find via the new Southern Terrace exit of Shinjuku station and there's a Franc Franc, Eddie Bauer, Krispy Kreme and Starbucks just a few mins away. The bridge to Takashimaya Times Square is also a few mins away. I'd stay there again but will probably choose a renovated room. As for service, guess I'd put up with it because the location is so good.

I stayed one week in this hotel. The corner room was large and the view was just amazing. Bed quality is perfect, and the bathroom was -in japanese terms- big. It is located near Shinjuku station, but it is closer to Yoyogi station.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are large and give a great view

Visiting our daughter in Tokyo, we chose the Hotel Century Southern Tower for its' great location. We were not only thrilled with the location but also with the room and staff! Located directy above the tracks leading into Shinjuku station, it was an easy commute from Narita Int'l Airport to Shinjuku station then a 3-minute walk to the hotel. The hotel is on the Southern Terrace where you will find a Starbuck's, a pastry shop, Krispy Kreme donut shop, and more. The unbelievably large Lumine mall is across the street. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful, always smiling and welcoming. Elevator service is fast. Room was very clean, with excellent maid service; although smaller than the average American hotel room--how much space do you need, really?. The toilet has a heated seat, bidet, and deodorizer. Shower pressure was perfect. There are robes and slippers in the closet. Our only complaint is that the bed is too firm for us. The VIEWS are AMAZING! Would definitely stay here again!!

We stayed here one night as a transit and couldn't have been happier. The room was beautiful and clean, with an extremely comfortable bed and the most amazing views over Shinjuku and Shibuya. The amenities in the bathroom were high quality products and the shower had very good pressure. The only disappointing factor was that there was no in-room menu for ordering food to your room which we wanted to do after 16 hours of travelling however the hotel is in a convenient location to heaps of restaurants and take away shops. The service from the staff was also excellent and there were no waiting times to be seated for breakfast. This hotel is 5 star for me.

Room Tip: Pay a little more for a corner room and get views from two windows.

We stayed at this hotel for a two nights stopover in Tokyo after skiing for two weeks on Hokkaido. The hotel is located approximately 3 minutes walk from Shinjuku Railway Station (just a little longer if you are dealing with luggage). The Hotel reception is located on the 21st Floor and guest rooms are higher; our room was on the 33rd floor.

Our check in was fast and efficient and the Front Desk staff were courteous and welcoming. Our room was on the smaller size as is usual for most Japanese hotels but was very clean and comfortable with reasonable quality bathroom amenities.

The view from our room over Tokyo was
quite spectacular. Our room was a west side Mt Fuji view room and we were lucky enough to get a great clear view of this amazing volcano; often the city smog and cloud around Mt Fuji can diminish the view.

We ate breakfast in Tribeks Restaurant on the 21st Floor with great views over Tokyo (if possible, ask for the corner table overlooking Times Square, it's the best seat in the house). There was a good selection of both hot and cold food. The omelette chef was kept very busy and there was queue but it was worth the wait.

This was our second stay at the Century Southern Tower. While the Hotel appears to be geared toward business travellers, we would consider returning again.
