“new trendy hotel with small rooms”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

My wife (58 years old) and I (60 years) stayed two nights at this APA. It is very trendy and upbeat establishment that seems to attract younger and fashionable Japanese. This makes sense to us since the Shibuya area is a huge market/shopping meca in the Tokyo area. We liked this hotel because of the close location the Shibuya train, bus and subway stations (15 minute walk).

The rooms are very small with a double bed. We stayed in room #1405 on the top floor of the hotel. There was a small window with a nice view in our room which over looked north towards Shinjuku. The windows have an efficient room darking shade. This would be helpful in keeping daylight entering the room to help over come jet lag. The bathroom is very small for a 6' 2" tall man. Although, I had a tight fit in the shower tub, I actually enjoyed taking a hot soaking bath. We could not use our luggage rack in front of the bathroom door as the space was too narrow for the door to open.

The room had a very large TV screen mounted to the wall at the foot of the double bed, a small desk and refrigerator. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel provides Yukata robes for your convenience. There is no room at the end of the bed and the wall in which to store items. Once you leave the elevator the walk ways are exposed the outside, which I thought was a cool design feature of this building. Hey, less space to heat or cool.

The room was very clean and we appreciated the staff who were extremely helpful in answering questions and finding locations on maps for us to visit.

There are also food items for sale in the lobby and a restuarant on the 1st and 2nd floors. This hotel is located near lots of restaurants and eateries. We enjoyed eating near the big scramble (road intersection at the train station) watching people.

We enjoyed are stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: request a room on north upper floors as the views out the window are amazing at night.

We stayed in this hotel just a few days after it was opened in mid-November. We stayed in a double room, which was the second cheapest option. Be prepared - the room is very tiny but everything inside is quite well organized and actually you feel pretty comfortable. We travelled with two big suitcases and two small back-packs and managed to fit in.

The bed is very comfortable and there is a big TV. Of course, immaculately clean. Staff don't speak much English but compensate with their great helpness. Most of the check in is done on a vending machine ;-)

Location is perfect - around 5-6 min walking from the famous Shibuya scramble crossroad and the Shibuya metro station. The area is lively all night long, very safe and with plenty of dining options.

I give it 4 just because the room is very small. Otherwise it ticks all other boxes. And it's value for money for Tokyo.
