With a convenient location in Hamamatsucho, this excellent apartment-style business hotel offers small but efficient rooms at prices that almost put it in the budget category.
Hamamatsucho, which is just a bit south of Shimbashi, might not seem like the most convenient neighborhood, but it’s better than you think. First off, the Tokyo Monorail, which offers service to Haneda Airport, operates from here. Next, JR Hamamatsucho Station is on the JR Yamanote Line, and you’re only three stops from Tokyo Station. Finally, Daimon subway station, which is just steps from the hotel, will get you to the rest of the city pretty quickly. And, best of all, by staying in Hamamatsucho, you save a LOT of money, because everyone else wants to be in Shinjuku and Roppongi!
The Mystays chain is a popular Japanese chain that offers apartment-style units. This hotel is built in a building that used to be an apartment building and it still feels a bit like an apartment. Rooms are small here but that is typical of business hotels in Japan. The rooms have everything you need, including deep bathtubs that are great for soaking.
If you’re willing to pay a bit extra, you can get a room on an upper floor that offers eye-popping views of nearby Tokyo Tower.
So, if you want to stay within striking distance of Tokyo Station for a very affordable rate, then definitely consider the Mystays Hamamatsucho.
