My husband and I stayed here during a 3-week trip to Japan. We stayed here for four nights. My sister joined us for a leg of the journey and stayed in a single room in this hotel.
The rooms are very small, so this isn’t a good choice for groups or families. Most of the people staying in the hotel are businessmen, solo travelers, or couples. The restaurant just outside of the hotel (Pop) provides the room service and is truly awful, especially if you’re used to American cuisine. We ate at the restaurant (not room service) once after a long night. We didn’t eat at the hotel restaurant except for breakfast.
The hotel décor is sort of pop art/mod and the rooms efficiently use space. This is a big deal staying in Tokyo. The hotel staff was very helpful in helping us to make dinner reservations and the morning continental breakfast was pretty standard for Japan.
The location is a couple of blocks from the Shibuya crossing, making it an easy walk to Shibuya and to the train/subway station. It turned out to be a good base for getting around in Tokyo. I usually try to stay in an area of town with nightlife, so that I can easily walk or take a cab back to the hotel late at night. For getting around the city, staying near the Shibuya or Shinjuku stations makes it pretty easy and there is plenty to do at night.
The hotel isn’t cheap, but it is Tokyo. I chose this hotel because of the location and price. If I were going back to Shibuya, I would definitely stay at Granbell Hotel.
Location (just outside of Shibuya station)
Expensive, but reasonable for neighborhood. Cheaper places to stay in Tokyo, but not many of them in Shibuya.
