Tokyo is a huge metropolis comprised of more than 20 district wards, so, if you are in Tokyo first time, it can be quite challenging to find a convenient place to stay. The city has a mix of modern and traditional attraction, so deciding on the neighbourhood that suits your travel can be quite overwhelming. Overall, the hotel standard in the city is excellent, so, chances are you won’t miss a hotel with everything you need; however if you want to find that ‘perfect’ accommodation for your budget, here is my top recommendations.
Wandering where to stay in Tokyo? Here are 6 of my best accommodation in Tokyo!
1. Hotel Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku
Sunroute Plaza Shinjuku is your best pick for those who want to stay at the centre of the city. Sunroute is just few minutes away from Shinsen-Shinjuku and JR station. It also near Shikuju Bus terminal if you prefer to take the bus out of town including Tokyo Disneyland like Kawaguchiko, and here you may spot mount Fuji.
The Rooms at hotel Sunroute plaza are for solo travellers; they call it a bright single room. The room is soundproof yet has sophisticated décor, so privacy here and comfort won’t be an issue. Here, you get to enjoy satellite TV and free Wifi, and there is an alarm clock in case you want to begin your trip early. Laundry facilities and vending machines as on site and luggage storage services are offered here. Safety deposits for valuables and airport shuttles are available, but they come at an extra fee.
2. Keio Plaza Hotel
Keio has a fascinating history; it is one of the first high rises Japanese hotel, and for more than five years in the 1970s, the plaza was the tallest in Tokyo. The hotel consists of two tower housing with an impressive 1400 guest room. The hotel has undergone numerous refurbishments, so its iteration is beyond most modern luxury hotels. Its nestled in the Shinjuku district, just a few blocks from Shinjuku stations, which makes it handy for travellers who wants to move around Tokyo. The quickest mode of transport from Narita airport is the Keisei Skyliner, but you can definitely find cheaper alternative public transportation.
You can book single rooms or those with club lounge privileges where you might find yourself straight up to the 45th floor. To have an awesome view of Tokyo city, make sure you request for rooms on higher floors during reservation. Regardless, the rooms décor is modern, smart, cohesive and by all mean they feel luxurious.
3. Park Hotel Tokyo
Park hotel is one of those affordable but luxury hotels in Tokyo. It also one of those hotels that have an art mecca; its entire floor is devoted to Japanese art. Park Hotel is surrounded by all people from all backgrounds, from salarymen to skyscrapers. The hotel doesn’t have the luxurious sheen of the city high-rise establishment, but its solid, attractive and a good option for those under a planned budget. The hotels offer plenty of excursions, including a visit to a small THANN spa that features a busting 90-minute massage. There are just about 273 rooms, which are clean-lined, complete with photographic artwork. The most eye-catching a place to stay may be the 31st floor where each floor features modern artwork. The 25th floor has many eateries. The art Lounge below the atrium serves western dishes.
