“Small rooms, but excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

This hotel was recommended by a friend, and we spent 3 nights here in Feb. Conveniently located just across the road from the Shibuya JR station, and a stone's throw from the main street of Shibuya, it is accessible to all the action on Shibuya minus quite a bit of the noise and traffic.

The rooms are really small, barely enough space for a not-quite Queen bed and a bit of space on the side to walk. The bathroom / toilet was rather cramped, so if you have a large build, then perhaps look elsewhere. There was just enough space for a small bath tub, which was flanked by a small sink and with the toilet bowl right up against the sink (kinda like the toilet on a boat). After the initial impression of "wow, this is small" wore off, we actually found it cozy, and we spend most of the time out of the room anyway, only returning to shower and sleep, so it was fine.

Despite the small size, it was well furnished, the bed was comfortable, and opening the window allowed some cool winter air in (though you get a bit of road and traffic noise as well). A LAN port and cable is provided for internet and they even provided a multi-charger for most mobile phones on the tiny bed-side table. There wasn't a safe in the room, so we just locked our passports in one of the luggage.

Service was run of the mill, no complaints and they even assisted with arranging a courier to have our excess luggage delivered to our onward hotel.

Wonderful location but the rooms and beds are extremely small - even by Japanese standards. We had to turn sideways to get between the bed and the wall and i am definitely not large! We chose this location so we could walk to Meiji Shrine on New Year's Eve and not have to worry about getting back on the trains and it worked really well. But I don't know if I would stay again - I think I would pay a little more for a room where I could unpack a few items into a drawer and have enough space on the floor to open my suitcase.

Small room, but so is many things in Japan. Everything was clean and had everything I needed! Best of all, right smack in Shibuya! Heeeellllo! Robes, toiletries, and indoor slippers are provided in your room.

We stayed here for 6 nights and it is so convenient to about 4 or 5 different train & subway lines. 200 metres from Shibuya Crossing as well. Lots of cute bars, food stalls and traditional japanese restaurants around the area plus lots of shopping stores. The hotel staff were so nice and helpful, always smiling and saying hi. Room was average size, but quiet decent for japanese sized rooms. TV, Air con and nice bathroom. Room always cleaned and not too noisy either. Over all very convenient and would happily stay here again for a fairly priced place in a popular area of Tokyo city. would stay here again!!

Room Tip: Higher up levels are probably not as noisy, but double glazing windows any level would be good!

It was the first time for me to arrive in Tokyo. Prices are outrageous, but the city is stunning!
This hotel was booked for me, mainly for its value and location. About 200 US dollars per night for nothing more than a battery cage with a build in bath room is apparently a good deal...
The room was so small that I had no place to open a second suitcase. Everything in the room was mini, but it worked. Internet was fast and for free. The mini-bar was empty though and a coffee downstairs was 10 dollars(!). The breakfast in the restaurant was nice but not outstanding.
The bathroom was entirely plastic and a build in model. Very efficient probably, but I felt like being in a camper on a camping place.
The hotel's best asset is its location at only 3 minutes walking from the Shibuya train/subway station.

We stayed here primarily for the location, and we weren't disappointed. It's right in the middle of the huge shopping district of Shibuya, a few blocks from the main station. That meant that getting around Tokyo was easy, and we could always find food (or whatever else we needed) nearby. The rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Wired internet in the room, air conditioning, vending machines (with beer), refrigerator, nice staff. There's a restaurant on the first floor serving "euro" food; we didn't go in, and it looked kind of expensive. This was a great way to start our trip to Japan.

We stayed in this hotel for a few nights and it was very convenient that it was steps away from the station. This was great since we were towing heavy luggages around. The check in was fast and the staff helpful with our questions.

Aside from the weird stains in the hall, the room was quite clean. It was also great that they have the option of being "green". We weren't expecting a big room but the space was sufficient for two people - especially since we're out most of the day anyway.

A few minutes of walking, and we're in Shibuya crossing.
