Tokyo accommodation – cheap affordable hotel budget stays

Tokyo can get expensive, very expensive, especially for accommodation, but if you do your research and plan ahead you don’t have to go broke booking a hotel. If you’re anything like me – traveling on a budget but well beyond hostels with shared rooms/toilet, then the following might help. All options include a room equipped with everything you need (toilet, shower, TV, etc. most with internet) and are around 85US$, which is terrific for one of the most expensive cities in Asia. I’d recommend first deciding which area of Tokyo you want to stay in.

More central and closer to the action

A more homely quiet option, next to the important JR line are :

If you don’t smoke, make sure you book a non-smoking room. If you’re not a single, be sure to book a double.

Further tips

Please note that :

  • Location is important. Make sure you’re close to a JR metro line.
  • Most of the budget hotels offer discounts off-season. On season many hotels would be booked well in advance. A reservation is better, and the internet deals are usually better than what you get on spot.
  • Most of the budget hotels offer a free/discounted night after 3-5 nights stay.
  • Most of the budget hotels include breakfast, but quality varies. Check that in advance if you care about what you get.

 

Hope this helps, feedback is appreciated. If you know of any other good reliable options in Tokyo, let me know.
