With one of the best locations in Tokyo, great views, comfortable rooms and reasonable rates, the Hotel Century Southern Tower is one of the best midrange hotels in the city.
Located in west Shinjuku, just steps from Shinjuku Station, the Century Southern Tower is one of our favorite hotels in the city. The rooms are relatively spacious, at least by Tokyo Standards. They’re clean and comfortable. And most rooms have eye-popping views over the city. Common areas are nice and there’s a small gym.
There are some good dining options in the building for people who need a break from Japanese food, including a Shake Shack and a Mexican restaurant. And, there’s incredible shopping and dining in the Takashimaya Times Square Complex, which is just across the way.
With room rates at the upper end of the moderate category, this hotel is one of the best hotel values in the city. It’s highly recommended!
