Whether for sightseeing, shopping, or business, Shibuya is one of the most convenient and entertaining locations to stay while in Tokyo. So when it comes to accommodations, the options are virtually endless – from twelve-hour-stay ‘love hotels’ (rabuho) to 5-star luxury properties. Here are our top picks for hotels in Shibuya.
The Shibuya Granbell is one of Shibuya’s only boutique hotels. With each room decorated differently, no two stays are exactly the same. The three-star hotel features an onsite Japanese pub, free WiFi throughout, luggage storage, and a 24-hour reception desk – helpful for late check-ins, or if you lose your keys after dancing the night away at one of the ward’s nightlife venues. Air conditioning and flat screen TVs ensure downtime is always enjoyable. The hotel is a 3-minute walk from Shibuya Station.
Tokyu Stay Shibuya
If you’re planning on staying in Tokyo a bit longer, consider Tokyu Stay Shibuya. The spacious condo-style rooms feature separate areas for the kitchenette and laundry. Enjoy free WiFi throughout the facilities, and a buffet breakfast is served daily in the AM. Perfect for business travelers on an extended stay, the 24-hour front desk offers courier and dry cleaning services. Tokyu Stay Shibuya is a 10-minute walk from Shibuya Station.

A classy business hotel with plenty of curb appeal, HOTEL UNIZO features sleek, modern décor with good use of space in the rooms. One of the main draws to the hotel is their Royal Garden Café. The Royal Garden not only offers alfresco dining – a luxury in Tokyo – but the lush greenery surrounding the patio is the perfect remedy after a long day of exploring the concrete jungle.
Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel
Another hotel in the Tokyu Hotels family, Cerulean Tower is one of the top five-star hotels in Shibuya. As expected of the sky-high tower, suites feature amazing city views, and the top-floor bar Bellovisto is the perfect place to take in the city after dark. An unexpected but welcome addition is the JZ Brat SOUND OF TOKYO, a jazz bar featuring live music and a laid-back lounge feel. Guests will never be bored at Cerulean Tower, which is also home to a pastry shop, fitness center, swimming pool, sauna, and more.
Hotel Fukudaya is a cozy ryokan near the upscale Daikanyama neighborhood. Both traditional tatami rooms and Western-style rooms are available. For a lower fee, guests can opt for a shared washroom.
