We called the Cerulean Tower home for two weeks on a visit to Tokyo. The hotel is located in Shibuya and is within walking distance to Shibuya Station as well as great shopping, sightseeing, and dining. For anyone needing a Starbucks fix like myself, there is one located a short walk from the hotel at Shibuya Crossing.
The rooms were very clean and spacious. I liked that there was a foyer area to remove shoes and hang up coats, umbrellas, etc. before entering the "living" space. We also had amazing views of the city from our couch as well as from the large bathroom window. Service was quite good albeit somewhat sterile.
The hotel has some restaurants located within: Italian, Japanese, Steak/Seafood, a lounge, a jazz bar, and a cafe where they serve a terrific breakfast buffet for a hefty price. There is also a 7-11 connected to the hotel that is convenient for water, milk tea, and other snacks. They have an indoor pool, but you must pay an additional fee to use it. We decided there were too many other things to do than sit at an indoor pool for a fee, so can't really comment on that.
The only negative I would have to say about the hotel is that the moment you enter, you are met with the noxious smell of smoke. This was pretty typical throughout Japan, as smoking is a habit many have picked up, but it would have been nice to not have to smell it when returning to rest from a long day. This was one of the reasons we never really spent time in any of the restaurants other than in the mornings for the breakfast buffet. There are non-smoking floors and rooms, so at least one can escape the toxic fumes upon returning to the room.
Overall, this was a great choice for a stay in Tokyo. It's a clean, comfortable, and modern hotel. Also, the location made it easy to get around and explore Tokyo.
