"Tight but everything you need"
My only complaint - no intl adapters for plugs, rooms were expectedly timy and the bar and restaurant was funky.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location and Service"
Location and service is excellent. Rooms are small but it is in Tokyo, Shibuya, Japan so space is limited here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location and Service"
Awesome location and Service. Rooms are small but hey, its in Shibuya,Tokyo, Japan, space is limited here..Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel for it's price."
Staff spoke English and made sure I was satisfied with my stay. Location was perfect for shopping and night life. Night clubs like Club Womb were in walking distance, along with the shopping centers around the Shibuya Train station. Room was small, but I expect that from most hotels in Japan. Definitely plan on staying again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Minutes from Shibuya Crossing"
Nice hotel about 5 minutes from Shibuya Crossing. Room was a bit dusty, but good overall. Standard Japanese hotel room size.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a great location, however sometimes the cleaning staff did not make the beds correctly, however I fixed it myself with no problems. Small rooms but all I did was sleep there so it wasn't a problemGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A business hotel"
Typical of APA hotels: clean rooms with comfortable bed, very tight space, fairly convenient location but rates feel higher than what it should be for what you're getting. (Even if you book a non single bed the bed is pushed up against the wall on three sides so the two of you will have to get in from the same side.) Very close to a ton of restaurants, […] shops and convenience stores. about 10 mins from the Metro, which can feel close or far depending on how much luggage you have. Well kept hotel, good for a night's stay but not for relaxing in or a romantic getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Erratic housekeeping & translucent bathroom door"
While it is a cute looking boutique hotel and the paper cranes and yukata are a nice touch, there were some definite issues here. Small rooms (as can be expected in Japan). The housekeeping was erratic. Sometimes they didn't clean at all. Some nights the AC did not seem to work. The bathroom door was translucent - which can be a bit of a privacy issue […] if you are not traveling alone. It was kind of a haul from the train station (when pulling luggage), but we found a better way to get to it - cutting through the Shibuya Mark City food court - look for the blue tunnel across the street from the hotel and cut through there for the best way to the station (or cut through Mark City toward Dogenzaka-Ue on the way there). They should list this access information on their website. The staff did not speak English, which could be a problem for some travelers. On the bright side: they had free wifi in the rooms, they had a washer and dryer, the location is convenient (but note it is near Love Hotels and a red light district too, so men might expect solicitation when out at night).

"Good location, but not so great"
The hotel was all-in-all pretty good, but it had a few issues. My room was a little musty smelling, and a few days into my stay the Air Conditioner stopped working. Also, the fact that it had about 14 Floors and only one Elevator was a little inconvenient. Plus, there was no Iron in the room, and I found myself really wishing I had one. As a place to […] go at night and sleep, it was perfectly adequate, however. The location was great, only a few minutes walk to Shibuya Station, and the surrounding neighborhood was packed with Restaurants, Coffee places, and a variety of shops, but at night it got a little seedy... if you walk around later on, you WILL get propositioned by 'ladies of the night', FREQUENTLY. Sometimes every couple of steps. Except for these details, which were mostly inconveniences and not really glaring defects, I was basically satisfied and might consider staying here again.

"Lovely hotel in the heart of Shibuya"
We stayed here for four days at the kick off of our Japan trip. Immaculately clean, friendly staff, small but well appointed rooms. Close to everything in Shibuya but a few blocks up from the total chaos of the scramble..Genuine Expedia guest review
this place is located pretty conveniently. However, the rooms was so small. sometimes i would feel claustrophobic in the bathroom, i would leave the door open when i get ready. I like how the hotel replenishes the tooth brush, hair brush and razors etc. there is a small fridge and a water heater in our room. Shibuya is the place to be so this hotel […] is a good choice.. and right around the corner there are love hotels and a famous restaurant called By the Sea, Leonardo DiCaprio and Norah Jones ate there hehe..

"Does the job"
The APA Hotel Shibuya Dogenzaka-Ue is a good, not great hotel. It does the job. The staff is friendly and helpful. The modern contemporary rooms are comfortable if small; but then aren't all hotel rooms in Tokyo small? I don't think anyone will be wowed by this hotel; this falls under affordable and functional, not luxurious or glamorous. You won't […] find a hot "hotel scene" here, but step out the door and you're in the heart of Shibuya! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and central place to stay in Shibuya."
We stayed at the APA Hotel for two nights. The APA Hotel is toursit friendly. It is central to all there is to do in Shibuya. From Shibuya station you can take the train any where. From the APA Hotel you walk just about every where in Shibuya. The staff is very friendly and accomodating. The rooms are western style. You can rent movies on the TV. Every […] thing was very nice for our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place, great location, v small rooms"
this ihotel is a great choice if you never plan on being in the room except for sleep. the hotel is clean, well located and safe. the rooms are small even by japan's norm.Genuine Expedia guest review
"friendly staff with clean rooms"
This hotel, although located in shibuya, was quite far of a walk from the station. However, they make it up by having really friendly staff. Although the room was small, it was well maintained and clean. Overall, I would recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel 10 min walk from Shibuya station"
The hotel is really great for its price. Clean, easy to find and close to the subway. (about 10 minutes walk from Shibuya station on a main street) One of the best aspects of this hotel is that it's easy to find, and for clothing shoppers - it's about 8 minute walk from Shibuya 109. Another plus is that it's 2-3 minutes away from the location where […] you catch the limousine bus, and there is just about everything you need nearby (Don Quixote, Lumine, Shibuya 109, restaurants, 7/11, Family mart, Airport Express Train, Limousine bus service etc). The only thing that was a bit of a downer was the room was on the much smaller size compared to some of the places we've stayed in Tokyo. It was slightly smaller than some of the business hotels in shinjuku. If you're a huge shopper planning to fill two - three luggage of clothing by the end of your trip, the room might get a little crammed. But for the price overall it's a very good hotel.

"Great hotel in a good location. Highly recommend."
I loved the Apa Hotel. It was within walking distance to everything cool in Shibuya, including the train station. The staff was very friendly and helpful, especially given the obvious language barrier. The room was slightly cramped, but still very comfortable. It felt a little like a room on a cruise ship. The only drawback was the slow elevator, but […] it really wasn't that bad. I highly recommend the Apa Hotel if you intend to be in the Shibuya area and want a good overall experience.

The rooms are slightly larger than usual in Japan (but still small) and the bed is like a cloud.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is surrounded by excellent restaurants and the street has an awesome vibe to it. Just up the road from Shibuya crossing and station but would have preferred a shorter walk. Rooms are small but that was expected. Staff were brilliant, incredibly kind and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"excellent location but not for the claustrophobic"
Location is brilliant, the APA is a few minutes from the heart of everything so it is pretty much an amazing spot to stay. BUT the small double room was freakin small. There was a tiny bed with one sleeper jammed against the wall, a really tiny bathroom and nowhere to move, one suitcase could be opened at a time near the doorway, not super clean and […] thankfully we could open the window as the aircon was barely working so the room was stuffy. The breakfast and staff on other hand were great. So pros and cons, if u don't mind the squash and its just a night or two, it is a beautiful, central spot but be prepared for the big squeeze. Bigger rooms in Shinjuku. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Rest & Leave"
The hotel rooms were small as everyone was saying (literally all that you can fit is a bed). Luckily, that bed was extremely comfortable and we only used the hotel as a place to sleep anyway. It isn't too far from Shibuya Crossing/Station. Simply turn take the path to your left once you walk out of the hotel and then follow that path for a bit then […] you're there. Shibuya just wasn't the place for us, so we didn't enjoy it as much as others would. The staff were friendly and spoke English which was extremely helpful for two first time overseas travellers. Nice quiet place to be and would probably go back if we were ever to go back to Shibuya. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the location is convenient. however, the only problem i faced was with the hotel reception. most of them are non-english speaking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you are a couple don't stay here"
Whilst the hotel is new and well appointed, if you are a couple don't stay. the reason for this statement is that the rooms are so small it is impossible for 2 people to be doing things at the same time. We are not big people and found the experience claustrophobic. Because there is only 1 lift for 13 floors and no internal stairs - at times there […] was a long queue to use the lift.

"Good Hotel in great location."
This hotel is located in Shibuya, a great location to stay in Tokyo. Is located just 5-8min walking distance from Shibuya station. The rooms are very small but very clean and confy. The staff is very friendly and always happy to help. I would definitelly stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent value, great staff"
From the moment you step through the door it is quite evident that they pride themselves on good customer service and high standards of cleanliness. The warm and friendly nature of the female receptionist was amazing and made me extremely happy with choosing DW Design Hotel....and this is the impression I got before I had even checked in. The room […] was huge and very clean considering the price. And the location of the hotel is very convenient and close to Hongdae.

"Cozy, Clean, Central."
Small rooms, but felt new, clean, and comfortable. Quiet and safe at night. Excellent location; very central. We walked to Shibuya station or the Crossing daily (5 min away). Lots of shopping, restaurants, nightlife, etc.. close by. There's a Lawsons convenience store next door, and a bar on the main floor. Excellent service. Great value. We would stay […] here again.

"Reasonable option for Shibuya"
Once we overcame the room size (which is typical for Japanese hotels in Tokyo) we were fairly comfortable in the room. The room we had overlooked a Metropolitan Expressway and so we could hear traffic at night, but once we got used to it we slept OK. Rooms are clean and WiFi blazingly fast. Staff were typically friendly and helpful. There are also a […] couple of Combinis fairly close where you can pick up some goodies for breakfast. To get to the hotel from JR Shibuya you can exit via Mark City so you don't have to fight traffic and pedestrians with your luggage on the Scramble Crossing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Booked this hotel for 2 nights during a shopping trip to Tokyo. My stay was very pleasant, clean room, free internet, comfy bed, and close to all shopping destinations like OIOI, Seibu, 109 and other big malls. Minutes away from the Shibuya station and convenient stores. The staff spoke English and were very helpful. This is an absolute gem for the […] price you pay and the location you get. Can't really compare the hotel to a big Western brand, the rooms are very small (but functional). If you're looking for a spacious and comfy hotel room to relax in, this is not for you.

"Great hotel near subway!"
Excellent new hotel just minutes away from Shibuya crossing. Plenty of minimarts around the area. Finding food is not a problem. Hotel is clean and brand new at the time of lodging. The only down side is that the hotel is at Dogenzaka so that means a climb up hill so those with disabilities or tons of luggage might not be a good place. Also, for those […] looking for the hotel, you can't miss it. Look for the puffer fish restaurant with the huge puffer fish sign. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel close to Shibuya shopping area."
Overall the hotel is reasonable, it's fairly typical for Japan and at a price that I would expect for the area (unfortunately Tokyo is expensive!). APA Hotels use Seattle Coffee shops which don't seem to open for more than a few hours each day so don't expect to be able to get a coffee after 9:30am - there are vending machines however and plenty of […] convenience stores close by in times of desperation. This hotel has around 14 floors and only one lift so allow for this in your travel plans! Room is very small but typical for Japan and a hotel in this class - it's okay. Aircon worked fine too. Would I stay there again? Yes. Value for Money? No, not on a global standard. Yes for Tokyo. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Well placed in Shibuya, 10 min walking from Shibuya station. Small rooms, but usual in Tokyo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location is great, room too small"
Location is good. The wifi works well, the password is on the tv screen. The room is too small for hard shell luggage, you will not be able to open it properly. There were several knick knack advertisements in the room, which i shoved into the window seam and mirror caddy to make space. There are several convenience stores nearby. To find the hotel […] from shibuya station, easily, go out the Hachiko exit. Look for the 109 building, which creates a fork in the road. Take left road of the fork, follow it along for 10 minutes, the hotel is on the right side, almost under the overpass bridge. Take note for those with luggage: this is a crazy busy area, and the walk is uphill on a cobblestone sidewalk. There is another way you can take from the shibuya station which has a smoother side walk and is quicker route to the hotel, if you know where you are going. It runs alongside the overpass.

"Very compact, but very convenient"
Hotel room was really small, but had everything I needed. It was comfortable and clean. Its location is fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The position of the hotel is really convenient, it is only a 10 minute walk to Shibuya Station and the the busy shopping district which surrounds it. The area that the hotel is in is less busy but there are many convenience stores within a minute walk. It is brand new. The rooms are very small but OK for 2 people, the bed is large enough. If you like […] a lot of space don't book this hotel. For me the newness and position made up for the size of the rooms. Some of the staff spoke English, all were friendly and helpful.

Hotell med bra läge i 14 våningar i Shibuya. Nära till pendelstationer och stadsdelscentrum. Små men ändamålsenliga rum. Bra utsikt från de övre våningarna.

Rummen är något små, men har stora och sköna sängar. Rent och fräscht med perfekt läge ett stenkast ifrån Shibya Crossing. Flera trevliga restauranger i närheten också. Tyst och bekvämt, trots placeringen. Trevlig och hjälpsam personal.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really comfortable bed"
I'm satisfied with a comfortable bed, neat bathroom. Also, I could easily stop by LAWSON close to the hotel. This hotel is located on the hill so it took about 10 min for me to reach the hotel. If you wanna find it quickly, walk through a side road of Ichi-maru-kyu(not mens) where Uniqulo sign is seen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
飯店位置離車站不遠，也很好找。附近餐廳多，用餐很方便。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
インテリアも良かったです。価格はもう少し安くなったら良いと思いました。ビジネスホテルと比較すると快適でした。駐車料金が一泊３０００円ももう少し安かったらよかったです。接客は親切でした。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

房間很小但是五臟俱全，床很舒服。地點很好距離澀谷地鐵很近，附近有mark city、很多餐廳居酒屋絕對不會餓到。來回機場可搭乘limousine巴士。唯一缺點不知是正逢耶誕假期，晚上回酒店路上有很多喝醉的年輕人，但還是安全的。還會想再來住。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
