Hotel Above The Scramble Jul 01, 2013
The Shibuya Excel Hotel Tokyu is situated in the business area of Tokyo. If you're a tourist, this hotel is the best possible location in Tokyo, with a view to the Shibuya crossing (the scramble).

You'll see lots of people heading for the Shibuya train station located below the hotel, so it gets a bit crowded during rush hours. It's really convenient to go down by a couple of levels from the lobby (5th floor) to buy things in the massive shopping center, or to catch a train from the station below that.

As for the rooms, they're standard Japanese sized hotels, so it does not bode well for people that are too big or too tall. The interior is somewhat traditional. I can't say enough about their service and cleanliness, bathrooms included. Their restaurants and continental breakfast deserves 5 stars. The best part was the awesome choice of breakfast - Western or Japanese in different restaurants. The restaurants are on the 25th floor with a beautiful expansive view of Tokyo. Western breakfast is an extensive breakfast buffet. Japanese breakfast was plentiful, beautifully presented of course, and also delicious.

I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a mid level hotel who is willing to spend a decent amount of money per night.

Top Location....and a big bathtub! Aug 19, 2009
I mention the bathtub because for anyone who's stayed in tokyo before... this is a luxury! not all hotels have a bathtub, especially if you're staying in more budget accom (most people that want to soak go and use sento or public baths) - but i found after a long day sight seeing the bathtub in my room was so relaxing!

so, enough about the bath - (but really, it is good! he he) excel shibuya is in the heart of the action - located right next to shibuya station you can't get much more convenient. light sleepers never fear, you can't hear any station noise!

the staff are friendly yet professional and everyone i dealt with spoke english.

this hotel would probably be a little on the pricey side for most budgets (it was for mine but i did it anyway! was first solo trip, wanted a bit of luxury!) but considering it's prime location with spacious rooms and great views of the city, it really isn't too bad for value.

close by things to see include mega store 'tokyu hands' for souvenirs and generally obsurd nik naks! mark city department store (directly below hotel) - be sure to check out the basement of mark city called 'foodshow'... if you love japanese food you'll be in heaven! just about every dilectably delicious treat you can imagine from gyoza to pastries, sushi to soba. not to mention the cakes!

shibuya has plenty of nightlife, shopping, cafes and things to amuse the young 20-somethings, so they'll enjoy this area most although it really does have something for everyone.

all in all, excel is a great hotel in a perfect location for exploring all that tokyo has to offer.

It is in center of Shibuya where, center of Tokyo.

Hotel is very clean, has nice view of the city, safe and convenient.

Usually 20000 JPY/night which is quite average rate in Tokyo.

Always my friends from overseas stay there.
