hotels in tokyo cheap

If you’re looking to book cheap in Japan, there are plenty of options that you can choose from now, especially with the multitude of capsule hotels that have sprung up. Capsule hotels or pod hotels are unique accommodation options and feature small and basic individual sleeping units called capsules. They basically run on the idea of providing minimalistic overnight accommodation in large numbers. Developed in Japan and now slowly catching up to the other parts of the world as well, capsule hotels are increasingly becoming popular owing to the privacy as compared to sharing spaces or dormitories, the convenience and the cost-effectiveness.

Other pocket-friendly accommodation options available include basic single rooms, twin-sharing or dormitory rooms. Based on how much you’re willing to spend and the kind of amenities you’re looking for, we’ve curated a list of handpicked budget hotels to cater to different price points. Check out the top-rated yet cheap hotels in Tokyo here!
