Best Hotels in Tokyo

Tokyo has an area of over 2,000+ km2 and in this, there are 23 vast wards! With this in mind, the metropolis is absolutely humongous — but even so, there technically isn’t a ‘true center’ nor is there a specific neighborhood that tops the rest because the truth of the matter is: Tokyo’s top attractions are spread out all over the city.

Nevertheless, the way I see it, Shinjuku and Shibuya are the best areas to base yourself in if you ever find yourself in this vibrant urban setting due to the number of key places and shops that surround it. But of course, this isn’t to say that the other areas are not ideal, because they can be as dependent on your preference and budget.

For instance, Roppongi is great for nightlife, Asakusa is ideal for souvenir shopping, Ginza is best for luxury boutiques, Odaiba is good if you want to be close to Disneyland or DisneySea, and so on.

ANOTHER TIP: It’s always best to pick a hotel that’s near a major train station like Tokyo Station for your ease of traveling around the city.

To help save you time, below are the best hotels in Tokyo — per district — from cheap to luxury picks!
