For our final night in Tokyo, my daughter and I stayed at the Toyoko Inn Kourakuen, in the Bunkyo area. The hotel is conveniently located near subway stops of the Marunouchi and Nanboku lines. It is also just a few blocks north of Tokyo Dome and the La Qua amusement and shopping area. And a few blocks south is world-famous Kourakuen-Koishikawa Park.
The Toyoko Inn chain, located across Japan, is similar to Holiday Inn in America. Very clean, with many amenities like robes, bathroom items like toothpaste, razors, etc.
Rooms are very small, but well laid-out. There's even an ironing board stored underneath the bed! Be warned, no closets and the only place to store your luggage is also under the bed.
They put out a nice Japanese-style breakfast in the lobby, included in the room rate.
One note: Since it's mainly a business hotel, you need to be out of the room between 10am and 4pm for cleaning.
But for a clean, convenient room in Tokyo for under Y10000 a night, Toyoko Inn can't be beat!
