Shibuya Granbell Hotel Review

Reviews / Hotel

Situated in the Shinjuku neighborhood, this hotel offers clean, affordable rooms compared to its local rivals.


Upon arrival you will be greeted by a phalanx of friendly, English-speaking staff in a spacious lobby before ascending to your room, likely smaller than the impressive entrance would suggest. Many hotel rooms in Tokyo are small, especially at this price range, and the views over town more than make up for it.


Once you’ve adjusted to your new quarters, you can start to appreciate the great bathroom, comfortable bed and large TV. Cleaning is done every day to exacting standards, and aside from that there is little to report on the rooms themselves.


Perhaps the hotel’s best feature is the terrace bar on the 14th floor, which gives great views over Shinjuku. It is regularly listed in articles about the best bars in the neighborhood, so make sure to pay a visit.


The location is second to none, with easy access to bars, restaurants and clubs, and Shinjuku Station is just 15 minutes away on foot. All in all, this is a great hotel that won’t drain your bank account, like similar accommodation in Shinjuku.
