Hotel Century Southern Tower
Ranked #1 of 28 Hotels / Ryokan in Shibuya
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Like other posters, we chose Century Southern Tower because of the favorable reviews it had received on Trip Advisor. Much better than we had anticipated! Its location is ideal: right next to Shinjjuku station – the busiest subway station in the world – where most subway lines and many JR lines (including the Narita Express) stop. The neighborhood, Shinjuku, teems with restaurants, bars, and hundreds of thousands of young people both day and night. The hotel lobby is on the 20th floor and guest rooms are on the floors above, meaning fabulous views over the city wherever your room may be. If you don't take breakfast at the hotel, you can easily find coffee and rolls at one of the cafes (including Starbucks and Krispy Kreme) at the Tower's base. Rooms are good sized, bright (big windows to gaze upon the city), impeccably clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The staff is faultlessly accommodating and polite. We’ve stayed here twice - can’t imagine why we’d go anywhere else.

Hotel was perfect in that the airport limousine stopped there and there is a major subway stop down the block, also department stores and restaurants across the street. Rooms were larger than expected, and comfortable. Staff was courteous and helpful. I would recommend the Century Southern Tower, especially for a first trip to Tokyo. Easy to get to and helpful staff if you're an English speaker.

We stayed in 5 hotels in Japan and this was by far the best. Modern and decent sized room, great facilities in room and an ideal location next to Shinjuku station, making getting around Tokyo easy.
Not only this, but with it being from the 20th floor upwards, you also get fantastic views over Tokyo :)

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the Fuji side and if you get a (very) clear day then you will see the mountain!

My husband and I used this as our base in Tokyo for 13 nights. We've stayed in Shinbashi and Shinagawa before but this is by far the most convenient location out of the three. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from Shinjuku station which makes it convenient for the Narita Express and various subway lines but if you are using the Oedo Line or Yamanote Line (which we did the most) then Yoyogi Station is actually closer (and a lot easier to navigate) just exit using floor 1 and walk left down the hill. It's also a 5 minute walk from Yoyogi park which is a perfect haven if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku for a little while.

I've stayed in nicer hotels, but for value for money this hotel is unbelievable, I cannot rate it highly enough or stress just how perfect it is for a stay in Tokyo. We stayed on the 29th floor in one of the renovated rooms (floors 26-35). Our room was large by Tokyo standards, spotless, free bottled water was provided daily, bed was firm (as with all hotels in Japan), but it's really the view that makes it so special, we could see Mt Fuji most days and there is a handy little guide in the window to show you what you're looking at. If I had to criticise I'd say that there wasn't really enough storage space for all of our clothes and belongings but realistically I'm not sure how many other travellers are with them for as long as we were?

Tip: The bar at the hotel does a 500 yen per drink happy hour between 5pm and 8pm which we used once and included a good selection of drinks to choose from.

Stayed here for 5 nights in a king room on level 33 - from the moment we arrived I was so impressed by how clean and immaculately presented everything was. English speaking staff made check in a breeze, and our room was beautiful (I'd heard tokyo hotel rooms were tiny but definitely not in this case!). I was very pleasantly surprised - for the price (around 18000yen/night) it was much more luxurious than I expected. Bed was super comfy, and great views.

Location was excellent, 2mins walk from shinjuku station (take the south exit from the station). Proved to be a great place to situate ourselves and staff were wonderful, even with small things like lending power adaptors. There's even a happy hour in the bar 5:30-7:30pm weekdays with 500yen drinks (including cocktails). Highly recommend a martini sitting there after a day's exploration. And definitely see why this is currently rated number one hotel in shinjuku!

Okay, so the Century Southern Hotel isn't going to win any awards for charm and character but the views more than make up for this. Where else in Tokyo can you stay so centrally for this price with breathtaking panoramic views? Rooms are large, clean and the staff very lovely. I was 5 months pregnant at the time so being able to catch trains so easily with Shibuya station mere moments away was great. Stay here, enjoy the view and spend the money you save on getting out and about soaking up Tokyo culture.

We booked 3 rooms for 2 days. Upon check in, the staff gave us an upgrade room. We really happy to know that our rooms are very big. This is really a great hotel with the well trained, polite and accommodated staff. The location was likewise convenient for walking, If I was not mistaken just in front of takashimaya building and also just 20 minute walk to the shinjuku shopping area. Subway just 10 minute walk from the hotel. Good hotel. I will stay again in the next visit.
