Great location. Shibuya is a good place to base yourself if you are wanting to look around Tokyo.

Room is a little small but that is usual for Tokyo. We had a window but it was frosted glass so couldnt see out it. We were never in the room so just treated this hotel as someowhere to sleep and it was perfect for that!

My family and I loved our stay here. It is a rather old hotel, needs some updating but for its price and location we would stay here again. We also enjoyed the quiet vicinity it is in yet it is a few minutes on foot from Shibuya crossing. Harajuku and the Meiji Shrine is 12 minutes away too.

I had a last-minute booking (just 1 day before arrival in Tokyo) and this hotel did not disappoint. I stayed here for a total of 4 nights, and I was so glad I chose to stay in the vibrant Shibuya area! Approximately 7-minute walk (moderate pace) from JR Shibuya Station. Get out from the main exit, walk to the famous Tsutaya building (where there is also a Starbucks), round the bend and keep walking straight, passing by Parco and Miu Miu, and the hotel is just ahead.

For the price that I'd paid, location was certainly a huge plus point. It's at the quiet end of the busy Shibuya shopping street, and yet safe with several restaurants and cafes around the area. Yoyogi Park and Meiji Shrine are also approximately a 15-minute walk away, and Harajuku, 20 minutes on foot.

Hotel was clean and equipped with toiletries and other basic amenities. Space of the room was sufficient. No wardrobe, just hangers (approximately 6) but that's probably what made the room slightly more spacious. Absolutely fine with me.


The (minor) minuses: Table was too small (it was triangular-shaped) and no freezer in the mini-fridge to contain my ice cream. "Fake" window ie no view. Staff might not be able to speak too much English, but it wasn't too much of an issue for me personally, as I speak some Japanese. Very strict with the check-in time of 2pm (I'd arrived earlier at 1230pm)

Ultimately, for its price though, this hotel met my expectations. I would stay here again!

Very pleasant stay at Shibuya Tobu. Minutes by foot from Shibuya Station, in the middle of a very active, young part of town, yet very quiet. Nice rooms and a very friendly and efficient staff. Breakfast buffet with a good variety. Wi-Fi in the lobby was perfectly sufficient for my needs.

We love this hotel for it's friendly and helpful staff, it's perfect location and price. Will hopefully return again. Shibuya is excellent area to stay in when visiting Tokyo, and the hotel location is very close to the train station with connection to almost all trains and subways.
