Tokyo is one of the largest and most expensive cities in the world. Fortunately, the city also has a very reliable and large network of public transport that makes it easy to get around. Most of the hotels near the center and Ginza district are very expensive so to get a good deal, consider staying in one of the outer neighborhoods. Here are seven of the best and cheapest hotels in Tokyo.
