☆~Abipop's guide to Tokyo: Best places to stay!~☆

Hello Everyone~~! ^-^

I'm starting a new little series on my blog to help you guys with your trip to Tokyo, Japan~!♪
Each blog post will focus on a different topic and location to help you plan your dream holiday to Tokyo!!

A lot of you guys have been asking me where the best place to stay is! So Today's blog is about "The Best places to stay in Tokyo" (On a budget and not on a budget)

Let's start of with good places if you are staying in a group of say around 4!

When I went to Japan for the 1st time, I found a lovely apartment on Airbnb for us lot to stay in~♪ Airbnb is a fantastic place to find cheap home-like accommodation~! ^-^

Now when staying in Tokyo, I wanted to visit all the main spots for example, Harajuku, Akihabara, Shibuya ect~!

So I chose this wonderful place:

Between the 4 of us, It worked about about £205.32 each for 1 week here!
Ofc course that can be a little more pricey for some but for what you get this is incredible~!
You are 5 minutes from Otsuka JR line (Yamanote line) which is the line that takes you to all these main spots in Tokyo!♪

They provide so many instructions on how to get here from both Majour airports and how long it will take and how much it will cost (Btw Travel in Japan is so cheap!)♪
You also get a Portable wifi with this apartment so where-ever you go, you will have an internet connection~!!

 It's a beautiful area I cannot recommend this place enough~!!♪

Onto Hotels~~!♪

I have many many friends who go to Japan for holiday's each year and have found the cheapest and best location hotel's ever~♪

Now again I wanted to be close to the JR Yamanote line♪!

I recommend the "Sakura Hotel - Ikebukuro"
It was only 1 stop away from the last place I stayed and again 5 minutes walk away from the train station~!!
( Also I recommend booking this via "

I stayed with my friend Kelsey in this hotel and we chose the "Standard Double Room"
It was very very tiny and not much room at all! But some how we managed to get ready, hair, make-up and 4 suitcases in there! ^-^

This was about £320 for 12 nights and 13 days each~!♪

not bad concidering the price huh? They also had hair dryers, towels, adapters you name it ready for you to borrow~~♪!

Now onto the hella pricey but beautiful hotel~♪

If you have the cash to do this, I HIGHLY recommend this hotel. It was.. BEAUTIFUL. and incredibly spacious~! *dreams*

Prince Park Hotel Tokyo Tower

This hotel is a 10-15 minute walk from Tokyo Tower and tube stations~! and also has some beautiful scenery around the area!
This hotel is VERY VERY expensive but boy do you feel like royalty staying in this place~!
You get the most beautiful and incredible views from your balcony's too!

This is a photo I took from my balcony of this hotel when it was pouring with rain the night we arrived! So so pretty ^-^

Here are some of the rooms they have here:
Stunning.. all of them even the smaller ones~!!♪

I really really recommend this place even for a couple nights if you can afford too! Stunning! SO beautiful inside and out!

You are close to a couple tube lines too so don't worry about getting lost~!
The staff speak english too! Also has a water fountain inside the building xD

I really hope that this post will help you with finding the best place to stay in Tokyo for you trip to Japan~!!♪

Ofc you can browse all the other amazing AirBnB or places to find more deals~! but these are my personal preferences :3

There are more post's coming up including places to eat/shop/go ect~!♪
Please look out for those!

Thank you guys for reading!
