If you saw the movie "Lost in Translation," you might remember a scene of an intersection that's crazy busy with pedestrians walking in all directions when the light turns red. That's Shibuya Crossing, and it's just a stone's throw from this hotel, located across from bustling Shibuya Station and connected by underground passage and a footbridge (tip: the footbridge is a good place to photograph Shibuya Crossing). Located above Mark City shopping mall, with reception on the fifth floor, it's a business hotel that appeals also to women with its two women-only floors accessed by a special key and offering the extras of makeup remover, face cream, jewelry boxes, and other amenities. Rooms are on the 7th to 24th floors, with those higher up facing Shinjuku providing great night views. On the 25th floor is Abientot, a French restaurant also with great views and reasonably priced good food. In addition, Mark City has a couple floors dedicated to dining, and Shibuya's nightlife district, a pedestrian lane lined with restaurants and bars, is just a couple minutes' walk away.
