The Dormy Inn Akihabara is a very economical hotel with a nice sento (public bath) and a relatively convenient Akihabara location.
Located at the north end of Akihabara (the electronics district), about 5 to 10 minutes walk from the convenient Akihabara Station, this budget hotel is a simple business hotel with some interesting additional features.
The large bath and sauna in the sento is a great way to relax after a day of sightseeing (and, of course, each room also has its own en suite bath). They also serve free ramen in the evenings, which is a nice touch. And, the coin-operated washing machines are useful for those on long trips.
The rooms are compact but they have everything you need. The whole hotel is starting to show its age. But, considering the nice extras at this hotel and the super economical rates, it’s a very competitive choice in this price bracket.
