 Tokyo Hotels



Budget hotels

Ueno First City Hotel Though it's a bit of a walk (12 to 15 minutes) from Ueno Park, this is the best budget-range business. The sweetest part of the deal is that the traditional Japanese rooms are, unusually, the same price as the plain Western-style rooms. This humble business hotel is a sweet deal if you're on a budget but want to stay in a Japanese-style tatami room.

Tokyo Backpackers
Even though it was built in 2006, Tokyo Backpackers is still dirt-cheap. Modern, clean dorm rooms have six wooden bunk beds, and there is free internet and a ladies-only floor. The entire building shuts from 11:00-16:00 daily for cleaning. As low as $25 per night.

New Koyo has developed a reputation for having unbelievably affordable room rates. Double rooms are slightly more expensive at around $44 (still quite cheap for a Tokyo hotel). New Koyo bills itself as "the cheapest hotel in Tokyo for travelers touring Japan on a limited budget"

Sakura Hotel While not quite as cheap as the New Koyo, the Sakura Hotel in Tokyo offers yet another low priced alternative for budget travelers. Single rooms start at around $55 and the Sakura offers a variety of room types including double, twin (complete with bunk beds), and dorm style rooms at $35 per person.

Hotel Oozora
10 min walk from Minamisenju on JR Joban line and subway Hibiya line. Facilities in each room include a color TV and Air conditioner.  Toilet, Public bath, and Laundromat, are shared. The hotel has an 11pm curfew. ¥2,300

Best Historic Japanese-Style Inn: Homeikan, 5-10-5 Hongo (tel. 03/3811-1181), consists of three historic buildings, one with a Japanese garden and very nice tatami rooms. A great choice for those who don't mind roughing it a bit (there are no private bathrooms), this is traditional Japanese living at inexpensive rates.

Manboo Internet & Comic Café is an internet cafe that has small, private rooms to crash out in. Rooms have a comfortable reclining chair, Internet, TV and headphones. There's also a shower room/toilet and toiletries on sale. Good as a last resort. ¥1,800.

Tama Ryokan, Prices for one person start at ¥4,500, and the prices drop if more than 1 person stays per room, prices can vary, so it’s not a bad idea to write an email and ask about seasonal prices. There is a lounge for relaxing and internet access. Three-minute walk from Takadanobaba Station
Ten Ten Guesthouse, the cheapest youth hostel in Tokyo. Price for a dorm bed starts with ¥1,200(per day for 1 month stay), ¥ 1,400(per day/1 week stay) up to ¥ 1,600 (2-6 nights). Don't expect too much for this price. The manager manages 6 of these guesthouses, all the same price, same style.

Mid-range hotels

Ryokan Katsutaro This thoroughly modern concrete ryokan is a standout for its simple yet chic designs, spotless Japanese-style rooms (all with bathroom), and location -- right in the heart of Yanaka with its old-fashioned neighborhood and about a 20-minute walk northwest of Ueno Park. If the ryokan is full, don't let management talk you into taking a room in its much older main Ryokan Katsutaro; it's not nearly as nice as the annex. From ¥6,300 onwards.

Ryokan Asakusa Shigetsu Just off Nakamise-dori and inside the Senso-ji grounds, this small inn could not be better located for a visit to the temple. The best options are the rooms with futon bedding and tatami floors; the Western rooms, plain but comfortably furnished, are less expensive. All rooms have private baths; there's also a Japanese-style wooden communal bath on the sixth floor with a view of the Senso-ji pagoda.

Hotel Villa Fontaine Shiodome Although this hotel appears to cater to business travelers, it is a good option for leisure travelers as well. The location is great in terms of being close to many of the metro lines. Spacious and clean, with a complimentary breakfast each morning, the average price is USD170/night

Crowne Plaza Ana Narita Thanks to its top class hospitality and excellent facilities, from a swimming pool with a retractable roof, to a fully-equipped fitness room and a sauna, the Crowne Plaza Ana Narita Hotel is the ideal choice for a leisure or business stay in Narita. Rooms are available at ¥9900 onwards.

New City Shinjuku Located in a tranquil spot across Shinjuku Central Park from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government building, this hotel has clean rooms with nice views of the skyscraper district, two decent onsite restaurants for the truly lazy, and a free shuttle bus to and from Shinjuku station. Singles start at ¥9500.

Sawanoya Ryokan, Closed Dec 29 - Jan 3. Well-known ryokan, all bedrooms with tatami floors. 2 rooms with bath, the 10 others share two Japanese-style baths and showers. Good neighborhood to simply wander and look at the houses and gardens. Free internet and LAN points in all rooms. They have friendly helpful staff. Single ¥4935-5250 without bathroom, double ¥9240/9870 without/with bath, triple ¥12600/14175 without/with bath.


Park Hyatt, 800/233-1234, 03/5322-1234: Quite simply, it's among the most gorgeous and sophisticated hotels in Japan, with rooms to die for, stunning views, and one of Tokyo's best restaurants. It also wins kudos for free entry for hotel guests to its dramatic, sunlit, 20m (66-ft.) indoor pool, on the 47th floor with great views over Tokyo.

Four Seasons  - Ridiculously opulent, the Four Seasons Chinzan-so manages to present a cohesive European-Japanese sense of design. With a location only slightly removed from the city centre, it feels like a luxurious suburban refuge. . Large windows make the most of the city or garden views. The interior is unquestionably civilized, yet oddly organic in tone: antique wooden tansu (Japanese cabinets) stand alongside ornate overstuffed rococo chairs with natural flair.

Seiyo Ginza
This hotel has been rated as on of the best hotels in Japan not only for its service, but restaurant's cuisine as well. 1105HT The hotel is very simple in style from the outside. A modern style building with hints of a European touch, this hotel has an elegant feel. Located in the world famous shopping district of Ginza, this hotel's location is excellent.

Mandarin Oriental  +81 3 3270 8800. Hallways are dramatically lit, and the interior design makes smart use of gorgeous custom fabrics. The spa offers relaxing treatments such as shiatsu and Ayurvedic massage, plus a steam room, sauna, and a series of pools. The overall effect is one of sophisticated calm, but with panoramic views of Tokyo and all its thrilling commotion, visible from every guest room, bath, and even treatment rooms

Hotel New Otani is the flagship of the New Otani chain, worth a visit just for the gorgeous gardens alone. It's a bit of a hike to the nearest subway station though. Rack rates for singles at ¥26,500 and up.
