Directly connected to Shibuya Station, the Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu is a large, popular and convenient hotel with low rates for the luxury category.
Shibuya is one of Tokyo’s best districts in which to be based, and the Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu takes full advantage of the location. It’s in a tower high above an extension of Shibuya Station and some rooms actually look down on the famous Shibuya Crossing. The building itself contains a large number of restaurants and shops and there’s an almost infinite number in the neighborhood nearby.
The hotel is in the luxury hotel bracket, but rooms are at the lower end of that class. It’s sort of like a very slick business hotel, and the rooms are reasonably sized for Tokyo. It may not have all the facilities of other luxury hotels in Tokyo, but the main selling point of the hotel is it’s location, which is among the best in Tokyo.
Service can be inflexible and the common areas can be crowded. But, once you get to the rooms, you’ll find them comfortable and relaxing.
Overall, the Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyo is a decent choice for those who want a great location and rates at the lower end of the luxury bracket.
