One of the more decent pricing hotel. Walking distance to the train station. Lots of eateries and a supermarket nearby. Although the room is small, but it is sufficient enough for 2 pax. Only problem is that the staff speaks little english and at time, communication could be a problem.

As we were planning our trip to Tokyo, we wanted to explore different parts of the city and Sangenjaya proofed to be a very good place to start off with.

I stayed 11 nights in The B Sangenjaya in July 2014. You are probably looking at The B because you are looking for an inexpensive hotel that's clean and reasonably close to the action. It delivers mostly on that deal. As a frequent traveller to Tokyo, I prize closeness to a station as you get everywhere in this city by... More

This hotel is in a nice neighbourhood, with many local restaurants and bars. 10 minutes from Shibuya by subway and the station is very close. the only downside is that rooms are very tiny, but I guess it is common for budget hotels in Japan.
