A Place to Stay in Tokyo: Ryokan with Tatami or Capsule Hotels

Tokyo, Japan

10 places

Anastasia Milovidova

Try staying in a traditional Japanese house or in the city's trademark capsule hotels.

H&R Hotel

This recently opened hotel has a number of pros: new nice rooms, stylish lounge, a library stocked with latest bestsellers and a great location by the nightclub area.

Reversible Destiny Lofts Mitaka

You'll remember this experience forever – this futuristically designed loft-style apartments are really unique. The major disadvantages, however, are location – 25 min to the central Shinjuku and a minimum stay of a week. However, rooms, all of which have there own shapes and where nothing is the same angle or height, are quite affordable – Y 5,000-6,000. A must-visit, anyway.

Mitsui Garden Hotels

This hotel chain offers great accommodation for great prices – for example 8,000 yens per double room on the 20th floor with Ginza panorama. One of the best about among Ginza Premier venues.

Khaosan Tokyo Hostels

Though all the fun is concentrated in the west, this eastern location has clean and nice rooms for affordable prices – a great option for backpackers.

Sadachiyo ryokan

A very traditional ryokan with Japanese style rooms – tatami and shoji screens. Guests are welcomed by kimono-clad staff and are treated with tea in the lounge.

Dormy Inn Premium Shibuya-jingumae

The hotel's location is perfect – Jingumae neighborhood packed with beauty parlors, concept stores, bakeries, bars and art galleries. In the morning you can jog or picnic in the famous Yoyogi park, which is nearby. The hotel also boasts a sauna and sento communal bath. The only disadvantage is the size of the rooms but it's typical of most Tokyo hotels.

The B Akasaka Hotel

The most central location you can ever imagine, hi-tech design and quite moderate prices. Highly recommended.

Toco Tokyo Heritage Hostel

This Japanese-style backpacker's hostel offers dorms with tatami mats and shared bathroom and kitchen. The atmosphere, however, is great and everyone feels like a big family. They have a bar in the next building - locals love to come there to have a chat with foreigners.

Granbell Hotel

They have two locations – in Shibuya and Akasaka. Rooms are tiny as everywhere in Japan but really stylish.

Hilltop Hotel

The building dates back to 1937 when it hosted a think-tank. Then it was home to US soldiers and turned into a hotel only in 1954. It immediately became artists' darling due to its elegant rooms resembling European grand-hotels and to a beautiful garden view.
