I decided to try this hotel after reading some of the reviews here.
I booked a single room on the hotel webstie at a rate of 11,000 Yen per night. After checking in, I found myself in a tiny, suffocating room. There was no space to turn around, no storage space for luggage, and no desk to work or even open the laptop. Nice details, but too small to be true! Thus, for only 3,500 Yen per night I upgraded to a Double Room, single use. The room was larger, with one desk plus a round table, queen size bed, storage space for clothes. Overall feelins is that the hotel is clean, modern, sleek and service very attentive. Staff was very polite - not a surprise in Japan.
Breakfast was OK, nothing special. There are several coffee shops and bars around, so you could always choose something else.
I wouldn't recommend the single room, it is really small. OK, this is Japan, but it doesn't mean you have to suffocate in a 10 square meter room for 150 USD per night. I would definitively recommend the double room instead.
In regards to the location, the hotel seats right in the heart of Shibuya, plenty of options in terms of shopping, dining and clubbing. You won't get bored in this area of Tokyo!
