8 Best Hotels In Shibuya Tokyo

8 Best Hotels In Shibuya Tokyo

The Ward of Shibuya in Tokyo has a small amount of quality hotel options with good guest ratings. It’s a popular place to stay with lots of great restaurants and shops, but it’s a little isolated from the rest of the city. We think Shibuya is a fantastic place to stay on a second or third visit to Tokyo because it’s a quieter area and you won’t need to be close to major tourist attractions.

In this guide we show you the 8 best hotels in Shibuya Tokyo for all budgets, based on our experiences.

Our Experience In Shibuya

We’ve explored Shibuya on two separate trips to Tokyo; in the fall of 2018 and during the cherry blossom season in 2023. In addition to eating fantastic ramen, we’ve also visited popular attractions like Shibuya Scramble Crossing and the awesome Shibuya Sky observation deck.

Shibuya is one of our favorite places to walk around in Tokyo and we’ll definitely be back again the next time we’re in Japan. Our advice is to stay as close as possible to Shibuya Station so you have instant access to the Tokyo metro network. Read more about us.

Is Shibuya A Good Place To Stay In Tokyo?

Shibuya is a great place to stay in Tokyo. It’s energetic and full of life, but it has a quieter overall feel when compared to other areas of Tokyo such as Shinjuku. In Shibuya you can enjoy plenty of shopping and choose between lots of quality restaurants.

You might have heard Shinjuku touted as the most famous Tokyo tourist hotspot? But we can tell you from experience that hotel prices in Shinjuku are higher and the area is overcrowded. We think Shibuya is perfect if you want a more laid back atmosphere or you’re traveling on a lower budget.

One of the downsides to staying in the Shibuya area is that it’s isolated in the southwest of Tokyo. Most attractions and Tokyo JR Station are easy enough to access with Tokyo’s extensive metro system, but you’ll end up spending a lot of time riding the metro if you plan to tick off Tokyo’s major attractions.

Affordability

Shibuya’s hotels are relatively cheap for the Tokyo area, but they’re still higher than most other popular tourist spots in Japan like Kyoto, Osaka and Hiroshima.

Within Tokyo, you’ll find hotels are more expensive in Shinjuku and around Tokyo JR Station when compared with Shibuya. You can pick up a quality Shibuya hotel room for around $180 USD per night on the cheap end and around $600 USD per night on the more expensive end of the budget scale.

One important thing to note is that Shibuya has far fewer hotels overall when compared to other touristy districts of Tokyo like Shinjuku or Ginza. We recommend booking your hotel in advance so you get a better selection of rooms and cheaper rates.

Added Tax

Bear in mind when booking your hotel that you’ll pay 10% hotel tax on top of your base rate. So, let’s say the basic nightly room cost at a cheap hotel is $180.00 USD for one night, your actual total cost is going to be $198.00 USD.

  • When booking your hotel using Booking.com look under the price for includes taxes and fees. This means the price you see is final and will not be subject to further add ons.
  • Conversely, if you see text reading something like +$15 for taxes and fees, that means you’ll pay the hotel room cost + the additional 10% tax.

Certain hotels may also add on a property service tax which will show in the included taxes section. You may also have to pay a small city tax fee per person per night when you check in or check out.

Our Verdict

There’s a reasonably good selection of hotels available in Shibuya, Tokyo. It’s a great place for food, shopping and tourist attractions, but we’re surprised there aren’t more quality hotel choices.

JR East Hotel Mets and All Day Place are your two best low budget hotel options. Shibuya Stream, Cerulean Tower and Aoyama Grand are all excellent luxury hotel options for your visit to Tokyo. Given the choice, we would stay at Aoyama Grand because it oozes understated class.
