Lonely Planet review
One of the city’s few boutique hotels, the Granbell is a step up from your average business hotel, though it’s priced about the same. Rooms have glass-enclosed bathrooms, Simmons beds and pop-art curtains; those in the newer annex are brighter than the ones in the main building. The hotel is on the other, quieter side of Shibuya, towards Daikanyama and away from the bars and clubs. Still, it’s only a few minutes’ walk from here to the station. Try to book early.

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 Caffe 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.
An accommodation tax per person per night is not included in the rate and is to be paid directly at the property.
