Tokyo Accommodation

There is really no downtown of Tokyo. My definitioin of downtown of Tokyo would be the inside of Yamanote line. Live close to Yamanote line stations is pretty convenient.

People frequently ask me for accommodation recommendation, following are decent places I’ve stayed or hear good things.

For Airbnb I only recommend this listing because I’ve met this person.

(¥10000 JPY ~ $95 USD)

  • Toyoko INN - low budget narrow hotels everywhere (ft. free breakfast)

I much prefer Mistui Garden hotels. Public bath is the Japanese experience. They are one of the first hotel I've seen that improves the tattoo situation). Also their hotel’s breakfast are the best of the best.


  • Bar Hotel 箱根香山
  • Wired Hotel Asakusa
