I had a great time staying here. This truly is four star luxury, even for the economy room that I stayed in. I love good interior design and it was wonderful seeing how the room was put together, from the frosted glass wall separating the bathroom, to the leather seat fitting perfectly into the alcove, to the four different lights you can control from […] the bedsidce. You get pajamas and slippers and even single-use drip coffee (yum-yum). However the room is small. Thankfully I had only a backpack. You will struggle with a suitcase, any suitcase. The location is fantastic, right in the red-light district, near all-night bars and ramen-joints. The eating restaurants and shopping of Shinjuku are a short 10 min walk away. With a little nous, you can can walk around most of the annoying touts of the main red-light streets. It is however, a bit of a walk from the massive and confusing Shinjuku subway station. But drop your bags and grab a bowl of ramen at the nearby Nagi ramen and you'll instantly feel better. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, iffy location"
The Granbell is a very nice hotel, with great rooms, a nice lobby, and I quite enjoyed the upper floor bar. It was fine for a family stay, but be aware, the area is dodgy. It might be a bit uncomfortable to walk through the surrounding area with kids, and the cab driver refused at first to bring us there. However the Granbell itself is not part of the […] surrounding 'scene' and will not disappoint. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel clean with comfortable bed. Location convenient to metro station. Hotel fine for families.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel surrounded by love hotels"
Nice new rooms, very clean and modern, room only had enough floor space for bags and bed. Hotel is surrounded by love hotels, but still in a good area tucked away from the crowds but close to everything.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome hotel! Clean, new, modern, friendly!"
An amazing hotel - clean, modern, new, friendly, and very inexpensive considering the amenities! I'm definitely going back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I had a good time staying in this hotel. It is a little bit difficult to find and quite far away from the JR station, though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Hotel - Not best Location"
No problems with the hotel itself. New, clean, good service, etc. The room was smaller than other Tokyo hotels I stayed at, and that's small since hotel rooms in Tokyo are small in general. The only negative is its location and distance to Shinjuku station. Granbell's website says it's a 15 minute walk from the station. That may be true IF you know […] exactly where the hotel is located, because the hotel is off the main streets in an enclave. And in the day time the hotel sign is not easy to spot from main streets (Its very small metal sign blends in too well with the top of its tall building's metal design.) Anyway, it took about an hour of aimlessly walking around and repeatedly asking for directions before finding it. I later learned my lesson that this all could be avoided by taking a 700 yen cab ride from the station. So if you stay there, opt for a cab! In general comparison, other Tokyo hotels I stayed at were far more conveniently located, equally nice, for less money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Small boutique hotel. Rooms r small. Two big persons plus 2 big luggage tight...no no. Service was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel with excellent views and amenities"
The hotel was just opened in Dec. 2013. I believe this hotel was designed for international visitors. My room had a king sized bed which was great . Also my room had higher doorways, windows and counter tops as most of Japan is scaled down for shorter stature people. The outdoor patio bar on the 13th floor provided a 270 degree view of the city. The […] buffet style lunch was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was extremely cordial. The amenities in the room were some of the best I have experienced with expensive soaps and lotions, pajamas, a bathrobe, slippers, large LED tv, air purifier, the list goes on. I highly recommend this hotel!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and clean in the center of bustling Shinjuku"
The Shinjuku Granbell hotel was immaculately clean and everything seemed brand new in the room (which was expected, since the hotel seems to have been built less than 6 months ago). The nonsmoking room and the entire hallway outside smelled fresh. We were happy to find that the air conditioning worked really well. Additionally, the hotel staff spoke […] English very well and helped us with directions in the city. Although the building was located in the busy Kabukicho neighborhood of Shinjuku, the interior of the hotel was surprisingly peaceful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beware of surrounding nightclubs"
There are tons of nightclubs around this hotel on the back end. I came with my cousin and boyfriend, and all the promoters were on the streets trying to get them to go in. We felt uneasy at times. But the hotel itself was great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is pretty nice, but a little bit small. The hotel is not far from metro train station but pretty far from Shinjuku JR station. So you should plan ahead to walk especially when you have a big luggage with you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Trust me this place is amazing"
I travelled to Japan for 10 days with 19 of my friends, and my boyfriend, and we stayed in 4 different hotels at different cities. Trust me if I go back to shinjuku I would again go to this hotel. It's at a neighbor hood full of food, activities, live nightlife. The staff speak English and are very nice. They hold on to your luggage if you need to check […] out and go explore or drop off to go explore. The hotel is very clean, breakfast is amazing and totally worth the money. And the size of room is pretty good compared to other hotels in Japan. I am very picky with hotels, and I would go back. Also AC works perfectly. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Shinjulu Granbell Hotel is located walking distance from the Shinjuku Station which makes a great location to get to anywhere in Tokyo. The hotel staff was great in helping me with directions, recommendations and even called on my behalf for tours I had previously booked. Although the rooms were small, this is Tokyo and the amenities made up for […] the size. The rooms included everything you needed from toothbrushes to "fabreze" for you clothes. They even provided me with an iron for my shirts. Will be making the Granbell my choice upon my return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This place was wonderful, like a boutique hotel. Great location next to Shinjuku and other areas nearby. Very quiet side street with nice lobby and fabulous rough top bar overlooking Shinjuku. The one major flaw was their free wifi access. It would work great for 5 minutes then completely drop off and come back for 30 minutes. There was never a good […] or bad time of day just very sporadic whether in room, lobby or roof top bar, but not a major factor if deciding to stay here. The pros far outway any of the cons.

"Smoke & Mirrors"
The Shinjuku Granbell was only 5 months young when I stayed there (April '14) and it's still finding its footing. The slick and modern design is what drew me to the place, but that was only skin deep. There was no depth of good service behind the glassy patina. The food was barely edible, the TV had no English-language stations, the room instructions […] were written by someone that had little English grammar experience and the staff was not coordinated well. Its youth must be taken into experience, but rehearsal pre-opening was skipped over. I don't believe I will return to see if it has learned its lines any better.

"Oasis in seedy Kabukicho"
We found this to be a slick boutique hotel right near the seediest parts of Shinjuku. The hotel is surrounded by love hotels and the scummy joints in Kabukicho, but is itself immaculate and has a very "cool" feeling to it - from the smooth DJ mix playing on the in-room TV, to the room decorations to the rooftop bar, all of it was hip. My only gripe […] was the lack of fitness facilities in the hotel (you have to go to a nearby gym). Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel looks very new. Rooms even though they are compact, look modern and all space is well distributed. Also it is in shinjuku area that even though gets very crowded, is well connected to other areas by metro and JR for sightseeing , and has lots of places to shop, dine and go out, if someone decides to stay around the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved everything about this hotel. Modernity, service, cleanliness, location and on-the-day price!! I will DEFINITELY stay again. Seriously, it was awesome. For foreigners, it wasn't roomy but this is Japan. In the context it was perfect. Loved itGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Really nice hotel, good location for activities"
Hotel is good , it is in the middle of the red light district but we felt safe at all times. Really comfortable, near to everything. We did not have meals there, always ate out. Room was large enough and very clean. They have a roof top bar but it was difficult to get a table as it was popular. Recommended .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Business hotel"
the hotel is clean and have good size rooms, nice breakfast, located 15 min walk from Shinjuku Station, only that the way from the station to the hotel include many adult oriented clubs which makes the walk in later hours bit unpleasant as they try to solicatete , all this is a good hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super clean modern hotel room"
Was very satisfied with this hotel and the rooms. I believe the hotel is relatively new but the rooms were spotless and very comfortable. The only comment is that the rooms could use more storage space or be a bit more functional. Few very small drawers and no closet but with a large bathroom and tub. Also in the very bustling are of Shinjuku which […] is close to subway stops and Shinjuku station. Lots of shopping, eating, and entertainment. The hotel itself is right but lots of clubs though, so it may not be the best for families with kids. Other than that, I would stay again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great but could have been better."
Passes my personal standards for hotels.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at the Granbell for 3 nights and would definitely stay again. The hotel was modern, clean and walking distance to restaurants and the subway station. The hotel is also walking distance to Golden Gai which is a must see area for anyone visiting Shinjuku.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"So pleased, will definitely return"
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 6 nights and loved it. We have very high standards so you can trust us when we say that Shinjuku Granbell was very clean and the hotel staff were extremely helpful. The hotel provides subway maps and directions to popular sites like the fish market. I felt that this was very useful for first timers to Tokyo. Location […] wise, convenient to Shinjuku Station (10min walk) and 2 other subway stations that are just 3 mins and 6 mins away. Although it was in the middle of a red light district it didnt bother me much as I was always accompanied by my partner and the red light district in Japan isn't like the ones in Thailand or western countries. I know I'm full of praise for this hotel so I will give a balanced view and suggestion for improvement. Being a new hotel, they've come a long way since it was established. The only other thing could be to have english instructions for the coin operated laundry machines provided on level 2 as we had a bit of difficulty with that. That said, a staff from the concierge was very kind to help translate that for us. Thank you for a lovely stay!!!!! :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Far away from shinjuku station"
The place is quite far from shinjuku station. The neighbourhood surrounding the hotel is quite "sketchy". Prepare for long walks to the JR/Subway stations.

"Great base in Shinjuku"
We stayed here at the beginning and end of our Japan holiday and were really pleased with the hotel.

The rooftop bar is cool too and offers a lovely view across […] the city of an evening. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Room size is too small, other things are also great. Two bottom waters are free charage.

"시설은 동경내에서 최신급."
전체적으로 만족이에요. 시나가와프린스나 워싱턴 호텔 등등 단체 패키지에서 많이 가는 호텔과 비교하면 내부 인테리어나 각종 소모품들의 제공이 최상입니다. 위치는 목적에 따라 다른데, 오오에도선 히가시신쥬쿠 역에서 5분거리이어서 좋은데, 야마노테선 이용시에는 15분 정도 걸어야 해요. 13만원 이내에 숙박할 수 있다면 이곳 추천합니다. (신쥬쿠 내에서는 좋아요). 체크인 데스크에서 일하는 남자 직원이 정말 못된놈이 하나 있었어요. 이런 부분 보면 작은 호텔의 한계라고 생각이 드는데, 그 외에는 만족합니다. 아참, 또 하나 주변이 러브호텔이 많은 카부키쵸 사이드에 있어요. 되도록 큰길을 이요하시면 좋습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Vi trodde att vi bokade s.k. DESIGN rum,som skulle ha fantastisk utsikt, men så bra var det inte, vems fel var det, kunde vi inte reda ut...Vi hade då ett SUPERIOR Dubellrum, små fönster här..,väldigt litet rum, man lyckades att klämma in en sittbänk under fönster, men den kunde man använda bara som bagage avlastning. det fanns inga andra utrymme för […] väskan, om man vill röra sig i rummet. Så vi skulle vilja veta hur små är då vanlig dubellrum...Bra WI FI, fint litet badrum med plinkande WC...Bekväm säng. Tyst. Baren på terrassen är helt ok, fullt med folk, kompenserar för de små rum kanske. Läget? Du får räkna att gå en bra bit till tunnelbana,ca15 minuter, vi tog taxi med våra ryggsäckar, i närheten finns inte så mycket , man får promenera en bit till restauranger och affärer. Annars är Shinjuku super kul del av Tokyo! mycket folk, speciellt på kvällarna. Hade gärna haft större rum med utsikt...Frukost så där, betalas extra, den västerländska - kokta korvar och kokt bacon, inte så kul, ...inget bröd, bara ganska tråkiga små bullar. Med tanke på att det kryllar av franska bagerier, kunde hotellet fixa i alla fall bagetter, tycker man.För det priset man betalar för hotellet, så tror jag vi hittar bättre nästa gång. Söner hade i alla fall en fin målning på deras vägg...Tyvärr inget gemensamt bad heller med varma bad,dettta hittar ni på hotell som har oftast japanska rum...vill rekommendera varmt!

Personnel très aimable et maîtrisant l'anglais. Petit patio agréable et rooftop. La chambre et l'hôtel sont très propres, tout le confort y est. En revanche la chambre était très petite mais cela correspond plutôt aux tailles des chambres japonaises habituelles donc pas de quoi être surpris si vous prenez comme nous une chambre économique. Pour ceux […] qui découvrent le système de localisation et d'adresses de Tokyo l'hôtel est très difficile à trouver mais il est situé près d'une bonne station de métro et une fois localisé les déplacements sont simples.

"Great, affordable accomadation"
The hotel was really nice and conveniently located close to various train and subway lines. The staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay at this hotel next time we´re in Tokyo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
비교적 깨끗하고 어메너티도 괜찮은 호텔이었습니다. 히가시신주쿠역에서 가깝지만 신주쿠역과는 비교적 멀어서 나리타 익스프레스 타고 올 경우 위치가 애매합니다. 그보다 유흥가, 러브호텔들 사이에 자리잡고 있고 이 호텔도 rest 와 stay 요금이 따로 표시되어 있는것을 보면 러브호텔 영업을 하고 있는것 같습니다. 물론 관광객 비중이 높아보이기는 하는데 그래도 그다지 기분이 좋지는 않습니다.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
