Search for Best Cheap hotels in Tokyo

Discover Tokyo

Spring has pleasant, warm days in Tokyo, and April brings the blooming of cherry blossoms –probably the best time to visit the city. Apart from spring, autumn is the most suitable season when the parks and other green parts of the city blaze in wonderful orange and red shades. Can you imagine sitting under the cherry trees, then have a walk at the coast, and return to the cheap hotel room and try some authentic Japanese food at the restaurant?

If the answer is yes, all you need to do is find the perfect cheap hotel and low lost flight here, on (where you can also search for companies to rent a car), and look for the experience this old-new city offers you. Whether you are interested in the more ancient sights like the Sensei Temple in the Asakusa region or the Tokyo Bay with its futuristic buildings, you will certainly find an enthralling program for you. Don’t miss the Shinjuku building either, as it is the tallest edifice of the city, with a mind-blowing view, and surrounded by many beautiful parks to have a rest in them.
There is plenty of affordable accommodation in the heart of the city: all the wards have at least 20 different, some very cheap hotels , next to the most exciting sights. The special wards' structure was established under the Japanese Local Autonomy Law and is unique to Tokyo. In Japanese, they are known as the "twenty-three wards" and they usually call themselves "cities" instead of wards in English. There are special wards making up the most populated part, the real centre of the city. It is the land that used to be the City of Tokyo before being ceased in 1943.

Although Tokyo is thought to be a modern city with access to all the conveniences of credit cards, it is advisable to bring cash instead, because not many card types are accepted yet, not even in all the hotels or local restaurants.

Some things to take care of when planning your trip

To have a holiday without setbacks, it helps a lot to take into consideration what simple measurements can be done that would save you many bad shots.
First of all, always check your documents that will be requested at the entrance of your destination country, consult the competent government agency, and even if you do not leave the country, keep in mind that it is obligatory to carry along your identification papers. Moreover, many accommodations request documents at registration. You may also want to rent a car, so you'll have to take your driver's license with you (get informed about the international driving license, too). Do not forget your travel insurance, your health insurance card (we strongly recommend you to take your health card). There are some countries where a visa is required to be allowed to enter the country at all. But do not worry, in most countries you can enter and stay without visas or special permits for some months (usually 90 days).
A good tactic is to photocopy important documents you might need, so in case they get lost or stolen, it will be really useful. Furthermore, it is also a good idea to carry along two extra passport photos.

Thanks to the Schengen agreement, one can freely cross the borders of ‘Schengen countries’, so EU travellers travelling within this area won’t be asked to identify themselves. Even so, you should always carry along identity documents, because police might ask for identity checks, any time. The following countries form part of the Schengen Agreement:
Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Iceland (non-EU), Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway (non-EU), Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland (non-EU).
EU countries that do not belong to this agreement are: Bulgaria, Cyprus, Ireland, UK and Romania. Citizens outside the EU will need to apply for visas and documents to enter the Schengen area. The maximum length of stay for travellers is 3 months.
Bear in mind that some documents and visas are not that easy to get, one has to wait for them. Therefore it is recommended that you plan the travel and learn about these documents well in advance.

In addition to paperwork, when travelling within or outside the borders of the EU or the Schengen area, don’t forget to be informed of the required or recommended vaccinations in certain countries. If you know exactly the health care situation of the country which you plan to travel to, you can avoid many unpleasant surprises.
Again, please note that some vaccines require more than one dose, sometimes with large temporary spaces between them, so it is advisable to act well in advance. Be cautious with consuming food, especially fruits, and for your security, drink bottled water only.
Also, the maximum weight of your luggage is usually around 20 kilos –depending on the airline-, so it might be a good idea to make a list of most necessary things before packing your suitcase. Your passport (and anything fragile) is best to be guarded in your hand luggage that you bring along into the cabin.
Note that you can’t have scissors (or any kind of cutting or stabbing tools) with you, nor liquids of any kind (water, tee, juices and all types of cosmetics), or at least only a small amount.

Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that your luggage gets lost. In this case it might be helpful to have some clothes with you in your hand bag, until your luggage is found.
