Lonely Planet review
Though priced about the same as a business hotel, the Granbell is far more stylish. Some rooms have glass-enclosed bathrooms, Simmons beds and pop-art curtains. The hotel is on the quieter side of Shibuya, towards Daikanyama; still, it's just a few minutes' walk to the station.
The Granbell is also available during the day for a 'rest' (from ¥10,500 for five hours), meaning it doubles as an upscale love hotel.
Our independent authors have visited Shibuya Granbell Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Shibuya & Around.

DIRECTIONS: At Shibuya Station, exit via the ticket gates at the South side, then leave the station from the West Exit. Go up the steps onto the overpass in front of you. Cross the intersection diagonally, heading toward the red JTB signs, and go down the steps on the other side, on the right. Pass the book store and the Excelsior Cafe on your left, and you will come to a 4-way intersection. Turn right onto the street before the 24-hour Sukiya restaurant. The hotel is just up ahead, on the left side.
The nearest Limousine Bus stop (from Narita/Haneda aiport) is Cerulean Tower Tokyu Hotel.
