Century Southern Tower Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Exceeded our expectations. Fantastic location. Amazing views. Great amenities. We had everything we needed for a long weekend in Tokyo.

Nice hotel close to shopping and rail station. Great views from the room.

Great. From services to cleanliness... all was as expected.

Perfect location next to Shinjuku Station, close to restaurants and nightlife. All tourist attractions easily accessible. Highly recommend it!!

I stayed at this hotel for 6 nights recently. Of the 3 hotels I was in on the trip to Japan, this was by far the nicest. The rooms were large enough for two people to spread out. Certainly the rooms were very large by Tokyo standards. The beds and pillows were super comfortable. I appreciated the in room fridge and hot water maker for tea and coffee. I picked the location because it was near the Shinjuku train station and service directly by the Airport Limousine Bus. Both were really useful. The hotel is nearest to the "New South Gate" exit from the train station. There are a couple of restaurants that serve western style food at that exit that we found pretty good and a nice break from the Japanese fare. It is very easy to use the Airport Limousine Bus to get to and from both Haneda and Narita airports. The front desk staff spoke enough English for all that we needed. In the room they provided a smart phone with wireless service for your use while you stay there. We had rented a portable wifi device so we didn't use the phone for daily excursions but I did use it for free international calls to the US. That was an unexpected bonus. My only criticism of the hotel is that the restaurants are expensive but there is a Shake Shack in the 1st floor of the building that houses the hotel with great burgers. I heartily give this hotel two thumbs up!

I used to enjoy staying at this hotel mainly because of its proximity to Shinjuku Station and the relatively large rooms (by Tokyo standards). But the service has sadly gone downhill. Not only is there no bell service, but generally there seems to be a shortage of staff. I had a phone message, and when I followed the prompt to retrieve it, I was connected to the Front Desk which didn't answer even after five long minutes (yes I timed it). When I called the Front Desk direct, it took them three minutes to answer. But what was most frustrating was when I asked the Front Desk (there being no concierge service) to make a restaurant reservation, the male clerk was hesitant and asked me to come back at 11 am. I told him we would be out all day, and then he seemed at a loss and just stood there punching at his computer. When I finally managed to overcome the language barrier, he asked for my credit card. So it seemed that he needed my credit card to guarantee the reservation just in case we did not show up. The entire experience was very unpleasant as I had never come across a hotel employee who could not handle a simple request for a restaurant reservation.

Overall great place to stay. It's location was perfect to tour areas around Tokyo. The rooms were perfect size and very clean and quiet. The front desk staff on arrival was hard for me to hear given my slight hearing loss, otherwise, there were no major issues. One of the restaurants was under construction so places to eat were very limited. The staff also had some limitation on local places to grab an early breakfast.

Friendly staff, great location, comfortable bed. Will visit again

The Limo Bus from both Tokyo Airports stops right in front of the hotel. Shinjuku South station is across, JR is a 5 minute walk & across the bridge (5min too) is Takeshimaya...need I say more? Room is clean & spacious. Staff is ok, maybe can be friendlier. But for sure, I will be a returning guest especially since its better priced than the Cerrulean!

perfect location for tourist(which is located right next to shinjuku stn.) and fluent English speaking staff, also view to the city was amazing.

The stay was amazing, the location is outstanding very close to restaurants, trains, and alot going on around the area. The staff is amazing too, very polite and considerate of helping foreigners around the city.

Easiest way to get anywhere with the Shinjuku station around the corner and many, MANY restaurants and stores just mins away. Walking distance to everything. A little difficult to find, but if you see the Sunroute Hotel, its across from it. Just keep walking past the Sunroute and you'll see it. Also, maybe have a pool.

Hotel was as described, check in was quick and easy.

I traveled to Japan with my two adult sons 8/19/2017 - 25th. Yes short, but sweat. I purchased flight, hotel and bus transportation to and from hotel through Orbitz. We landed at the Narita Intl. Airport, which was a little over a hour away from hotel. I enjoyed the bus ride because I could see the country, also the buses are very clean. Hotel was extremely clean from lobby to room. Zero liter anywhere in Tokyo itself. Staff are amazing, curtious and more then will to assist you. The little old lady that cleaned the room was extremely kind and gracious. Tons of places to eat at hotel or walking about. We enjoyed sitting outside listening to different bands play in their courtyard at the Shake Shack almost every night. First trip out of country for my boys, but not for me. This was an amazing trip and I would return to this hotel. Great job all!

Good location, large space and clean room. Very convenient for transportation and shopping.

The service at Century Southern Tower Hotel is top-notch. Staff speaks both Japanese and English, and makes note of which you prefer. The room is fully stocked with large bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and face wash (no little sample-sizes). There is a basket of every toiletry you would need, from razors to toothbrushes to cotton swabs, and housekeeping replaces anything you use when they clean your room for the day. The "washlet" toilet is amazing but this is a Japanese bathroom so I don't need to tell you that ;) The view is INCREDIBLE. We were blown away by it as soon as we arrived. At night it looks like a scene from a sci-fi movie. Also, there are blackout curtains, so when you're ready to sleep all the lights won't keep you up. And you couldn't ask for a better location. The hotel is near Shinjuku Terrace City, with many MANY department stores for shopping. Shinjuku Station is an easy 3 minute walk away, and from there you can go ANYWHERE in Tokyo (or just get dinner to go, which is what we did a few times. Pao2 has the best dumplings you'll ever have FYI). The only downsides to staying here are the bed mattresses are a little hard, and the breakfast buffet is nothing to write home about (we did breakfast every morning for a week at Gontran Cherrier instead, about 4 minutes walk away). But we are die-hard fans, and will absolutely stay here again on our next trip to Tokyo.

This is a great hotel. Good views of the skyline from your room. Room is a decent size, considering most rooms in Tokyo are quite small. Very convenient location to Shinjuku as well.

The hotel is adjacent to the Shinjuku station and near tons of restaurants and shopping. The Meiji Shrine and Gyuen park were also within walking distance. Although the hotel doesn't have bell service/luggage service, the receptionist and workers were very nice and helpful. The airport bus also picks you up right in front of the hotel. For those of you who are heavy packers or just love to shop, it helps so that you don't have to lug your luggage around the subway station.

Definitely worth getting the rooms with the view! Great hotel.
