The Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu
The Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu offers modern, four-star accommodation in the heart of one of Tokyo’s most international districts. The rooms, restaurant, and reception area take up six floors of a 35-floor building, which also doubles as a shopping mall on the lower levels and office complex above the 13th floor. Each hotel floor has a meister room with a quirky name. Meisters include active (small fitness center), shoecare, style care, food, and drinks.
The rooms are located on floors 9 to 13. There are three types: standard, superior, and deluxe. Standards start at 20 square meters, while the deluxe rooms max out at nearly 50. All 13 deluxe rooms come with a bathtub, which overlooks Downtown Shibuya. The superior corner rooms offer views in both directions. Some standard rooms are accessible.
All rooms include the standard four-star hotel amenities, plus a refrigerator and Nespresso machine. By far, the quirkiest item in any of the rooms is the life-size Aerobull Bulldog Bluetooth Speaker. See how it works here.

Dining Options at the Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu
You can have breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the hotel in their 66-seat dining room. Breakfast is served daily from 7 to 10. For 2,450 yen, you can choose one main course and then indulge as much as you’d like at the small buffet table. Lunch is served from 11:30 to 15:00 and starts at 2,000 yen.

While the hotel offers convenient dining options from morning to evening, that’s no reason to ignore the local food scene.

The meet point is just five minutes from the hotel entrance at the Hachiko statue at Shibuya Crossing.
Shibuya is a densely packed, 15 square kilometer commercial district of nearly a quarter-million residents. Known as the world’s busiest intersection, Shibuya Crossing is just a five-minute walk from the hotel entrance. An average of 2,500 people cross the intersection every time the light turns. Check out a timelapse video of the organized chaos here. The area is also popular for nightlife and fashion.
Getting to and from the Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu
Nine different train lines stop at the Shibuya station. These include three metro lines, the Keio Inokashira line, two Tokyu lines, and three JR East lines, one of which is the Narita Express. The hotel entrance is located just 15 meters from Shibuya Station (exit 16). Although having a car in Shibuya is about as necessary as driving around midtown Manhattan, the two basement levels of the building are reserved for parking.
