Just steps from Tsukiji Fish Market, the Tokyu Stay Tsukiji is a great value for those who don’t mind being a little away from the rest of Tokyo.
Formerly the Tokyu Stay Higashi-Ginza, the Tokyu Stay Tsukiji is an efficient little business hotel located right alongside the famous fish market (the hotel celebrates this fact with a huge purple fish painting on the building).
If you want to wake up early to register for the tuna auction and don’t want to pay a taxi to get you to the market, this would be a good place to stay. Of course, Tsukiji is not the most convenient location in Tokyo, but the hotel is very close to a subway station, so you’re not really that far from the rest of the city. And, you could walk into Ginza if the weather is nice and you want a bit of exercise.
The room rates here hover on the border of budget and moderate, and they’re usually very low compared to other business hotels in more central locations. There’s a coin laundry, which is very handy for travelers.
So, if you’re on a limited budget and don’t mind being away from the rest of the city, give the Tokyu Stay Tsukiji a try.
