Century Southern Tower Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Just hope the staff can know more English to help us with our travel questions. Very nice hotel!

The location of this hotel is hard to beat--easily accessible from Shinjuku Station, with breathtaking views over central Shinjuku and the Shinjuku-gyoen gardens. Easy access to rail and subway connections, and plenty of dining and shopping opportunities in the vicinity. Rooms are small but very efficiently designed and comfortable, and super quiet. In room fridge is nice for stocking up on snacks and drinks at one of the zillions of 'conbini' stores nearby. Also, the staff were wonderfully helpful... I can't even begin to convey how grateful I am for their help... I fell severely ill while on my trip, and they worked with the ambulance staff to make sure I went to a hospital suitable for someone with limited Japanese language skills, and they made sure to hold my room at a special rate until I recovered and could resume my trip... they even frequently checked in on me at the hospital. They went above and beyond what I'd expect from a hotel. I will definitely be back on my next visit to Japan, and would highly recommend this hotel!

The location, near Shinjuku Station, could not be better. The short walk, on an elevated pedestrian walkway was very convenient. The hotel is modern, with all of the amenities that one would expect for a hotel of this size and status. The only quibble I had was that the hotel did not present itself in a welcoming, traditional Japanese style like other hotels did. It would be nice to have the female staff members dressed in kimonos, and all staff members greet arrivals to the lobby or front desk with an irasshaimase. However, this contemporary approach seems to be a deliberate decision by the hotel.

Good Location, close to several rail and metro lines. Excellent Business Hotel. Nice staff. Clean room. Excellent wifi. Brilliant French Bakery down the walkway.

Perfect location to Shinjuku station which is great for taking Narita Express to/from airport. Also located close to subway, incredible shopping, and resturants. Also close to Kabochiko red light district if you are into that type of thing. The only complaint is no coffee, only tea, in the room. It is my preferred hotel for the Yen!

Courteous but quite friendly. Top tier 4 star hotel. Room service was unobtrusive and efficient. Rooms not huge but certainly adequate. Bed excellent and facilities generally excellent. Toilets were interesting to say little. Toilet hygiene seems to be a fetish in Japan and we were happy with that particularly when we had to use outside toilets.

I just returned and really enjoyed my stay. The front desk was incredibly helpful (all with good English), the location is perfect (if you want to stay in Shinjuku, which I did). Great value and would definitely go back.

Second time stay Jan 25th to Jan 28th 2010. Have been to other hotels in the area but came back to this hotel because it is/was well worth it. One important advise to everyone coming in on the Narita Express from the airport to the Shinjuku station stop. Follow the signs to the Southern Terrace Exit. Upon THIS exit, you have a mere 3 mins walk past the important Starbucks,and Krisy Kreme with your luggage after a long flight.

This was a beautiful hotel, very close to Shinjuku station. The room was spacious enough for Tokyo, and very clean. Great location if you want to stay in Shinjuku, with good restaurants, shopping and nightlife close by. There is a small convenience shop in the lobby which is good when arriving jet lagged for some drinks and snacks. There are some restaurants in the Hotel. We tried the breakfast buffet which was worth the price. The front desk staff new enought english to be helpful. Only somewhat annoying thing you is you need 2 elevators to get to you room. I would highly recommend this hotel. [...]

The location of the hotel, along with the esthetics and view, are superconvenient and fantastic. It was very easy to find thanks to fellow reviewers, only 5 minutes from the Shinjuku Station Southern Terrace Exit, and directly across the walkway from Eddie Bauer. There is indeed an El Torito in the building, but we didn't go there for obvious reasons. Tip: Narita Express train to/from Narita airport goes right to Shinjuku Station, about once an hour. It cost 3100 yen per person and takes 75 minutes. All trains were cancelled on the day that we were leaving due to Typhoon 18 (Melor), so we exchanged the tickets we had bought for cash and took the Airport Limousine Bus, which leaves from directly in front of the Keio dept store at Shinjuku station West exit. It takes a brisk 11 minutes from the hotel front door to the bus stop, and this was carrying 2 bags and wheeling a large suitcase on the busy streets. The Bus costs 3000 yen per person and took 90 minutes.

Century Southern Tower is a very nice, modern hotel in a great location. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and have amazing views of Tokyo's skyline. The hotel is conveniently located near Shinjuku station, which allows for easy access to the subway and the trains. I found the dining options at the hotel to be rather limited but since there are so many restaurants in the neighborhood, this may only be an issue after hours. Overall, a good choice for a short stay in Tokyo.

Modern, sophisticated, clean and sleek. Great experience. Stayed for 5 nights, and enjoyed the fantastic views of the Shinjuku skyline. Front desk staff was incredibly helpful with any requests, and spoke English well.

The Century Southern is a lovely high rise hotel ideally located 3 minutes walk from Shinjuku Station. Following the advice of other travelers, we exited the station at the Southern exit and very easily found the hotel. The room was small but immaculate and the views of the park were great. The restaurants were fine, but there is no room service. All in all, a good, reasonably priced alternative for Tokyo.

The hotel is located in the Shinjuku section of Tokyo. Great location if you are trying to get around the city because there are several train lines that run within a 10 minute walk from the hotel. For the Foreign travelers with the Japan Rail Pass- VERY convenient...JR Station is a 10 minute walk. The rooms are nice and clean. There are lots of food options in the area as well as the hotel.

A excellent location with ultra modern farcicalities. The rooms are very clean with a nice city view. Walking distance to the train station.
