Bottom Line

The mid-range Dormy Inn Premium Shibuya Jingumae hotel is in Tokyo's vibrant Shibuya District, an eight-minute walk to the Meiji-Jingumae subway station. The 136 guest rooms are spread over six stories, and rooms include flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, electric kettles, coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi. But some rooms have small windows and are dark and cramped, and guests have complained about noise from the nearby railway line. Rates are slightly higher than at comparable neighborhood hotels (such as the Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku), but there are quite a few freebies on hand, such as a free breakfast that includes a wide variety of Western and Japanese dishes, late-night ramen noodles, tea and coffee throughout the day, use of a public bath, and shuttle service to nearby subway stations.

Scene

Mid-range property with uncluttered, streamlined style

Dormy Inn Premium Shibuya Jingumae is surrounded by other multi-story buildings in a busy area of boutiques and restaurants. The large lobby area has an understated elegance that's surprising in a mid-range hotel. The floors are covered in chic wood-block tiling, and the illuminated reception counter is decorated with tiny mosaic tiles. The space is uncluttered, with only a circular sofa and two armchairs for seating. A large flower arrangement and a few potted plants add decorative touches. The hotel draws a wide range of travelers, including couples, solo travelers, and those in town for work.

Location

An eight-minute walk from Meijijingu-Mae subway station

In the immediate vicinity of the hotel are the many fashion boutiques, restaurants and cafes of Shibuya, and the railway tracks of the Yamanote line run just behind the hotel building. Meijijingu-Mae is the closest subway station, an eight-minute walk away, but Shibuya train and subway station is also accessible and just a few more minutes' walk from here. Tourist attractions like Meiji Shrine and Yoyogi Park are also located within walking distance.

Rooms

Small, clean rooms with flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, kettles, and coffeemakers

The 136 rooms at the Dormy Inn Premium Shibuya Jingumae include Singles, Doubles, and Twins, and range from 161 to 215 square feet. All are air-conditioned, and come with  flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, electric kettles, coffee-pod machines, and air-purifiers. Some of the Twin Rooms have sofas. Irons and ironing boards are available on request, and guests can choose from five different types of pillows. Bathrooms are tiny, and they have either shower cabins or small Japanese-style bathtubs, with the bathroom sink located in the entrance hallway. They include hairdryers, magnifying mirrors, and toiletries. Sliding doors separate the hallway from the sleeping area. Decor is minimalist, with a neutral color palette of tame browns, beiges, grays, and whites. Many of the rooms have small windows and can seem dark as a result, and some guests have complained of noise from the nearby railway line. Double beds, at 55 inches wide, are a little narrow for two people -- a twin room may actually offer a couple more room.

Features

Free buffet breakfast, evening ramen noodles, public bath, and shuttle bus

Use of the heated public bath, filled with “ultra soft water,” is also free to guests, and in-room massage treatments are available on request. Guests can also use the washing machine at no extra charge -- and laundry detergent is free as well -- but there's an extra charge for the dryer. The free shuttle bus service takes guests to Shibuya and Meijijingu-Mae stations. The hotel also has vending machines that sell drinks, an ice machine, microwave, two computers connected to the Internet in the lobby area, a photocopier, lockers, and a smoking room.
