“Great Location and Decent Sized Rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

The location of this hotel is absolutely fantastic for someone who wants to be in the heart of things, both day and night. Shibuya Crossing is just around the corner, restaurants are everywhere (a great noodle place next door), convenience stores within a couple minutes walk and within walking distance of Yoyogi Park and Harajuku.

The hotel itself is quiet and clean. Free wifi and information pamphlets in the lobby. Enough English spoken by staff for quick checkin, luggage hold and some small gifts for sale. The rooms were decent sized by Japanese standards with a couple English channels on the TV. The fridge and toiletries are very handy. The only negative I can think of is the pillows were like rocks but I don't think that's uncommon in Japan.

I stayed 5 nights here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel or to stay here again.

I stayed for 6 days in this clean and nice hotel. It's in the center of everything in Shibuya may be in Tokyo. You can easily walk everywhere and go everywhere. It's so close by walking to Harajuku also. I highly recommend this hotel. And I will be staying for sure for the second time. Small Hint: Don't stay in the rooms which are back side of the hotel. It might be a little bit noisy.

After a one night stay back in November 2011, we chose to base ourselves at the Shibuya Tobu for the duration of our 10 night stay this time. Shibuya is such a fun part of Tokyo that it makes a fantastic base. The heart of Shibuya can be a bit manic, yet at only 5 minutes' walk away the hotel is in a much quieter area.

Service is competent and polite, semi-double room is small but clean, location is FANTASTIC! One little annoyance is there's no luggage rack in the semi-double. Even this small and basic addition would have made a big difference in terms of space, as it means everything (eg two large suitcases, plus whatever shopping you do!) has to sit on the floor - and there's not a lot of floor to spare!

You may not realise, but no more that 5 minutes walk away (in the other direction to where you will normally be coming from) is Yoyogi Park. A nice quiet green space, well-utilised by Tokyoites wanting to escape the hustle and bustle, do some exercise or walk the dog. Keep going through the park and you will eventually reach Meiji Jingu Shrine and Harajuku. Yoyogi Park also hosts great markets some Sundays.

I would definitely recommend this hotel and will stay here again on our next trip to Tokyo.

Basic hotel, small but comfortable rooms.

Good breakfast included in the price.

The best thing about the hotel is the location. Only 5 minutes walk from Shibuya station and crossing.

You have to pay for wifi in the rooms here, that's the only strike this place gets.

Decent hotel & fantastic location for the price you pay.

Good value for money and conveniently located for the things we were seeking to get out of our stay in Tokyo. On the NEX express train, Shibuya is easy to get to, from the airport. With well posted signage and a bit of forward planning we navigated through Shibuya station and up the road to the Tobu Hotel. The rooms suited our needs and were well maintained, neat and tidy. Check-in and check-out was quick.

This hotel is very good located. Shibuya is one of the best places to stay to experience Tokyo. The train from Narita Airport stops at Shibuya station. Then there is 5-10 min walk to the hotel. We stayed in a small double room. It is small and there is no closet to store your clothes. Bathroom includes bath-tub and a electric Japanese toilet with warm seat and so on. Bring cord or pay for WiFi. There is 24 hour reception. The staff speak good English and are very helpful and friendly. Breakfast is ok, not extraordinary, it is a mix of western and Japanese food. I recommend this hotel.

Amazon location, great coffee across the street, tasty buns at family mart, and yummy crepes just around the corner.
If you are going to the robot show, be sure to ask the hotel to book and you can save 50$!
Rooms were small an staff who didn't speak English were touch to communicate with. If you want to go to the sky tree- make sure you book through a travel agency to avoid the hour wait.
