Shibuya has attracted both business and leisure travelers seeking a true 'Modern Tokyo Experience.' The Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu, opened in September 2018 and affiliated with Preferred Hotels & Resorts, works to capture the area's future-forward mentality together with modern hotel design and amenities made for creative travelers of all stripes.
The famed Shibuya district in Tokyo, long Tokyo's center of youth fashion, pop-culture, and music, has been in a state of dramatic evolution since the late 1800s when it was just a sleepy suburb of downtown Tokyo. For the last 100+ years, due to easy access to major transport lines and inimitable youthful energy radiating in the streets, Shibuya has attracted both business and leisure travelers seeking a true "Modern Tokyo Experience." The Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu, opened in September 2018 and affiliated with Preferred Hotels & Resorts, works to capture the area's future-forward mentality together with modern hotel design and amenities made for creative travelers of all stripes.
Time travel through art
As an homage to the ever-changing urban landscape of the hyper-creative Shibuya district, guest rooms and public spaces act as visual time capsules through different stages of the area's development. Curated art panels in guest rooms use color palettes evoking fashion trends and emotions across the decades, while the art panels throughout the corridors remix images from Shibuya's culture archives, providing contrast from the city-view rooms onto the evolving town below.
Guest rooms with vintage-modern design
The 177 guest rooms are created with an open, airy feel with abundant natural light, combining vintage design flourishes and modern amenities. Eschewing typical hotel closets with doors, guests hang their garments in open-framed Fashion Cloak wardrobes, giving prominence to each piece as it would be in a local apparel shop. Additionally, baths, toilets, and sinks are all separated from one another to create a more apartment-like flow and atmosphere, with selected rooms featuring dedicated showers and city-view baths.
Convenience by design: From easy access to robot-delivered room service
Modern Tokyo is truly the global center of innovation in convenience, and this principle is embedded throughout the hotel through location, design, technology, and services.
Meister Rooms provide support for daily life
The principle of convenience through design is present on all five guest room floors of Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu through the unique concept of Meister Rooms, spaces dedicated to providing free 24-hour self-directed services and amenities across specific themes.
Easy access to Shibuya & Tokyo hotspots
Outside of the hotel, the 24-hour Shibuya district offers a seemingly unlimited array of shopping, dining, bars, clubs, and entertainment for both business and leisure travelers. From modern restaurants to tiny back-alley bars that only seat six, Shibuya is always changing and full of hidden surprises. Popular districts such as Omotesando, Harajuku, and Ebisu are just one stop away by train, while Ginza, Asakusa, and Shinjuku can be reached easily without changing train lines.
For departure and arrival, train access to and from Narita Airport is just a three-minute walk between the hotel and Shibuya Station, and five minutes for those arriving from Haneda Airport. For guests utilizing the Limousine Bus, a free taxi service brings guests between the Haneda or Narita Airport-bound Limousine Bus stop at the nearby Cerulean Tower Hotel Tokyu.
With a delicate balance of amenities, culture, convenience, and location, Shibuya Stream Excel Hotel Tokyu provides the perfect access to the energetic pulse of the Shibuya District, as well as easy access to major train lines to bring guests to explore every corner of the city.
