“Very good Hotel”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

This hotel is very well located. In shibuya but quite close to Harijuku it was a fun place to explore Tokyo from. Shibuya is a very fun area to stay in with lots to see and do. The hotel rooms were fine - very standard normal Japanese size. There is a great park just up the hill for a relaxed afternoon. It is probably a 10min walk to the station though but lots to see on the way!

Location is about 10-minute walk from the Shibuya station. It's near enough that you can drag your luggage along the road path. There were 3 of us in the twin room. The extra bed made the room looked a little bit small, but otherwise, hotel room is quite standard compared to the average Tokyo hotels. Room and bathroom are clean. There was construction going on during our stay, and the workers were smoking a lot. We could smell smoke if we open the room windows, hence had to leave them closed most of the time. Reception was friendly, very helpful to tourists who can't speak Japanese. Unfortunately, free wifi is only available at the main lobby. There is also a printer should you wish to print anything at a small cost

Very pleasant, medium-priced (for Tokyo) hotel that caters to Japanese business men and foreign tourists. The assistants at the front-desk were very friendly and tried to be helpful but had limited English and we had to get assistance from an interpreter friend from time to time. There are a limited number of non-smoking rooms, so be sure to request when making the reservation if this is important to you. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for those who are on a relatively limited budget.

Room Tip: Ask ahead of time if you want a non-smoking room.

Hotel Tobu is definitely more than 7mins away from Shibuya station, considering the crowd and traffic and as well as lugging your own luggage. It’s tucked away at the end of the shopping belt, away from the bustling crowds and malls.

The moment we stepped into the hotel, we were greeted by the strong aroma from the coffee house located in the lobby. It seemed like the coffee house’s kitchen has very poor ventilation.
We were not allowed to check-in early even though the room was ready. Staff at the reception speaks good English, service was curt, and they looked tired even though its only noon time.
We requested for a non-smoking room during booking but were given a smoking room as they claimed that it was all taken up. The hotel provides air purifier in the room and this really helps with the strong cigarettes stench. Room was really small and not much room left after we placed our luggage. The furniture in the room looks tired and dated. Only tea was provided, however, there is drinks vending machine along the corridor.

On the second day morning I found a small cockroach in the toilet and informed the staff who apologised profusely but when we came back, the cockroach’s carcass was on the toilet’s basin. I felt that they could have at least returned to check after spraying the insecticide.

Free Wi-Fi connection is only available in the lobby. Limited and uncomfortable seats in the lobby showed signs of wear and tear. Not a pleasant place to hang around for long.
Service was also curt during checkout. The plus point for this hotel is its close proximity to shopping malls. Overall, I would not recommend this hotel as the staffs were as tired-looking as the hotel.

Very affordable and nice location.
you have to walk about 10min from Shinjuku west exit to get there. But the road to the hotel is no crowded and well-maintained.
Clean and comfort room you can experience for its affordable price.
