¥4,000 single room in central Tokyo location?Hello all,
Im looking for private room for ¥4,000 or less in as central location in Tokyo as possible. Im hoping to spend at least a week there and it will be my first time in Japan. I don't care how small it is and am of course expecting to share a bathroom.
I would prefer not to use a capsule hotel for such a long stay.
It must be close to good transport links.
I have spent plenty of time searching the internet and on here but have not found a great deal.
Kimi Ryokan sounds good but also quite far from place. Google maps predicts that it is over minutes from Ryoguko. Is that right?
Kimi Ryokan is in Ikebukuro area
Juyoh hotel sounds good and is in Taito-ku area.
Palace Japan is also in Taito-ku area.
If anyone has any other options that I can investigate or advice on which of these has the best location for the average tourist spending a week in Tokyo that would be great.

1You are unlikely to find 4,000 yen single room in a very central area, i.e. within the Yamanote loop line. I'd say 5,000 yen is minimum. There are plenty of simple hotels in Minami-Senju area for around 4,000 yen mark, much patronised by backpackers and day labourers, but it's not very central, though good connection exists on metro Hibiya line. 5,000 yen rooms may be had at Central Hotel near JR Kanda (with communal bath) from 3,500 to 6,000 yen.

2You can find a bunch of cheaper places on
Many for whatever reason are in Taito-ku. Virtually everywhere in Tokyo is close to a station.
Actually if you have never stayed in one before, I recommend you spend at least a night in a Japanese Inn or ryokan. There are some inexpensive ones in Tokyo, like the Kimi , the Tama, the Taito and the Tokyo Ryokan.

5Central Tokyo (Tokyo Toshin) is generally within the Yamanote loop line. There are lots of hotels in Nihonbashi area which is criss-crossed by several subway lines and one JR line so very handy for transport. It has direct connection to both Narita (about 75 min) and Haneda (40 min). Others cluster near Shinjuku and Ikebukuro, again good for transport, shopping and eating out. There are some near Shinagawa. Great for Shinkansen to the West as all trains stop there, and also for Haneda airport (direct train by Keikyu). There are hotels near other stations like Gotanda, Mejiro and Nippori, but eating out and shopping are limited. Ueno is a cheapish area but quite central and excellent for transport, shopping (Ameya and Akihabara) and sightseeing (Ueno Park with zoo - pandas - and fab museums). Also within an hour to Narita.
