Kitsch or ultra-cool? Traditional or trendsetting? Tokyo’s accommodation options are as vast and endless as the skyrocketing sprawl of the city itself. Only two stops from Shinjuku, you’ll find plenty of boutique hotels.
Japan’s design heritage is a thing beauty with luxury hotels like Aman, The Peninsula and Park Hyatt Tokyo combining chic aesthetics with epic views of the city sprawl. In a city as expensive as Tokyo, there are plenty of great budget hotels, hostels and guesthouses, like Nui – all which are convenient, cool and cost-effective.
For unique stays in Tokyo, try Book and Bed Toyko to sleep in a bookstore, Henn na Hotel which is run by robots or The Nine Hours Hotel for spaceship style capsule rooms.
For a traditional experience, seek out one of the few Ryokans left in central Toyko, like the historical Homeikan, modern Sukeroku no Yado Sadachiyo or luxurious Hoshinoya Tokyo, where you can sleep in tatami-matted and bathe in communal Japenese style.
With everything for major international hotel brands to quirky and cool local boutique finds, Tokyo has places to stay for every style.
