“Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

I decided to stay at this hotel because of a deal I found on hotels.com. I was traveling by myself so I didn't want to spend too much. I thought the room would be small but I was suprised to find it was bigger than I expected, similar to the size of rooms at hotels in the US. There was nothing special about the hotel as far as the furniture or the view, but the room was very comfortable and clean. The best thing about the hotel is that it is right in the heart of Shibuya. You walk outside the hotel and there are restaurants and shopping everywhere. The good thing about the location of the hotel is that its on somewhat of a side street so there aren't millions of people right outside the hotel and it is not very noisy. They had a restaurant onsite but I didn't try it because there were so many other options nearby. The area is very safe and clean.

I'd reccomend this hotel to anyone who wants to stay in a lively area while maintaining a little bit of privacy from all the Shibuya traffic. Its not too fancy but it gets the job done and is located in one of the more exciting areas of Tokyo. Would definately go back.

I stayed in a twin room and didn't find it too small. Location is one of the reason why we chose to stay there. Will surely stay there.

Tokyo is an exciting city, so are railway (world's expensive) and hotels ( pricey)! But Tobu hotel is your above average hotel - get twin singles than double ones as they're bigger in size! Took limited express train around 1000 yen, remember change train at niporri station, get out and change to yamanote line ( green), alight at shibuya station. Once out, (abt 7 min plus walk, pass by lots shops, eatery) look for star bucks, walk along right side, walk towards oicity mall, disney shop, parco. Hotel is Opp denny's. Note difficult get non- smoking room. Got highest floor and each floor has vending machines - beer, drinks! They have free ice too! Recept 24-hr with decent english friendly staff. Gonna go yoyogi park, meiji shrine stone throw away. Hotel extremely clean with exterior brown marble. They don't offer free breakfast but come on, lots of goodies outside! Love diy order of spicy beef veggy soup, egg, rice and fried beef w free drink at 680 yen - will get hold restaurant name later! Will try bullet train bk...slightly more pricey. Be visiting hakone for snow and disney!!!

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The location is fantastic for nightlife, it's very close to the clubs so easy to get back to your room.

The lobby is beautiful, but once you get into your room it's a different story altogether. The rooms are small, as to be expected, but what I didn't expect was the lack of effort to put in any kind of storage in that small space. There is no wardrobe or drawers, just a shelf with two hooks to hang up two items of clothing. Made our two week stay a little awkward.

Our room was quite noisy throughout the night, despite our window facing a wall. Lots of chatter from the streets and some kind of generator noise. It did not stop us sleeping, but it's something to bear in mind if you are a light sleeper.

On some days our room appeared not to have been cleaned, just tidied a little.

The staff were always pleasant and helpful, and everyone who served us had good English, I cannot fault that. Internet in the room was included too.

We did not try any food as it felt expensive and the hotel is surrounded by cheap places to eat. I especially recommend the udon shop next door (turn left out of the hotel, it is right in front of you and down some steps.)

It's a 10 minute walk to Shibuya station, very useful for getting about as it links to Shinjuku which will take you anywhere. You can also walk to Shinjuku in roughly an hour.

A friend and I spent 4 nights in Shibuya Tobu Hotel in early February. Shibuya Tobu is in great location about a 4 minute walk to Shibuya station and the famous Shibuya crossing. It is close to restaurants, shops and bars.

Staff were friendly and helpful ( they did send me the wrong way once or twice - but that equals some laughs!). The lobby has free wifi and the hotel has some good restaurants underneath the complex. The rooms were roomy for Japanese standards in Tokyo and most importantly were clean.

Would stay here again in Tokyo and if I was in the Shibuya area.
