Red Planet Hotel: Mid priced Asakusa hotel
Several people on VT advised that we stay in the Asakusa neighborhood and it was a good choice, we had an easy time getting to and from the airport, it was a lively area and it had good subway connections. The hotel is near a couple of stations but we chose the Asakusa station for our departure and arrival as the train was the cheapest option and arrived there after a change at Aoto. The hotel is slightly closer to the Tawaramachi station on the Ginza line
Red Planet is an Asian hotel chain, there are two hotels in Japan and many more in Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. The one in Tokyo has 134 rooms, it was easy to find as it is located on a major road and the name is very clearly marked in English.
The room had free high-speed Wi-Fi, air conditioning, a desk, an in-room safe, a hair dryer, a refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities, and a TV.

Hotel Via Inn: Central Location...Closed to Asakusa Station
We book two different hotels in Tokyo, this hotel is also in the same area of Tokyo in Asakusa district. We went to Nikko for 2 day after checking out to our first hotel. This is cheaper than the previous one. But the room is somewhat smaller especially the bed
We choose this hotel of our last day in Tokyo because we have an early flight from Narita Airport.
Asakusa train station is just a short walk. The hotel is surrounded by shops and restaurants, and the hotel itself has a restaurant next to the reception office and offer a buffet style.
The semi double bed somehow small, depend how big you are. We are small people so it was enough for us ;-) . The bathroom is typical in each hotel in Japan (small). Japanese people are they small? typical of Asian people very cute so as their bathroom
Water kettle is available in room for tea and coffee maker. Free wifi connection in our room is an extra plus
There were two hotel clerk when we arrive, but the check- in time was only at 2 pm and we arrive around 12pm. Our room was not ready yet, so we left our luggage and stroll around the city for a while
We wander from the hotel without used of a metro everything is so close, which is easy to walk around. There was a market on a Sunday but this was very crowded. The location of the hotel is in excellent location
This hotel has change the name last summer in June 2014. It use to be the (Blue Wave Inn), no idea why they change a name.
The service of the hotel is really good, we have been welcoming by two front desk staff during check- in.
They have two types of room I think, bigger and standard room, our room was a standard cost $39 good enough for a night and for people with not much of luggage. We have one packpack and medium suitcase that's it
For traveler with two big suitcase you might need the bigger room
We're satified to our small room for a night stay, if we'll be here longer would take the bigger room. Everything is walkable around, plenty of restaurants next door
The restaurant downstair also serve breakfast buffet for 1080 yen. But we can't make it we have an early flight
A highly recommended place to stay in Asakusa district. Take the bigger room if you stay for more than two nights or if you have more than two luggage.

Asakusa Central Hotel: Excellent Location Near All the Sights in Asakusa
The hotel is in very good location which was close to everything, metro station is just a few meters away. Tokyo sky tower is just a few minutes walk. Plenty of shops and restaurants next door, the market stalls are just a few meters away.
We have a very late check-in due to late arrival in Narita international airport. The hotel is in Asakuza area, is about an hour by train from international airport of Tokyo
There was two clerks behind the counter they're both busy when we arrived and very good in English. The check- in process goes pretty fast.
The hotel is in two parts sound very strange but it is so. After filling up the costumer form and made our payment the clerk gave us the reciept and he said we have to change the reciept to the otherside of the door for a room key.
Japanese people were very polite and treat thier costumer with so much respect, we were overwhelm!
There was no breakfast include, no restaurant in this hotel, but no panic, there are plenty of restaurants next door and a bakery.
There is a coffee maker and refrigerator availble in the room. The room is nice simple with queen size bed, a small closet, enough space for a couple. This is quite pricey hotel $84 per night, it certainly is a nice hotel
Bathroom is small, bathtub and shower are present. It is not a bathroom for two people who want to use in the same time the space isn't big enough for two people (very cute)
Toilet lid is with heating, this was the first time I've seen in my life. A high tecnology toilet bowl ;). In room we found two pyamas in bed, and a Japanese slipper.
The floor is carpet. Free good connection wifi in the room which was an extra plus
The location is near Sensoji Temple. After settling down to our room even was very late we still wandering around to the temple. It's very nice to see at night
The hotel has a spacious lobby, they can arrange a kimono fitting next door for picture taking, but reserve a week in advance
The hotel is a little expensive, but this is Tokyo, is not really for budget traveler. For the price of this hotel is absolutely worth it. The service with costumer were pretty good. The friendliness of the staff which really an appreciation and very helpfull to their costumer.
We like the location of this hotel, The area Asakuza is nice to stroll around and the market stalls are just next door
Nice to wander around when its dark or at night time. The hotel lobby is very roomy, you feel very comfortable because the staffs are very welcoming and very polite.

Hotel Keihan Asakusa: Hotel Keihan Asakusa
Located in Asakusa neighborhood, Hotel Keihan is located in a great area, not far from Senso-ji and Kaminarimon Gate. After we finished our stay in a hostel in the area, we arrived at Hotel Keihan. It wasn't a far walk from where we had stayed. Check-in went smoothly and were pleased with the cleanliness of our room and amenities offered. Being Tokyo, the room was compact but not uncomfortable. The toilet is seperate from the bathing area. There was free wi-fi which, as a traveler, is always a plus! The beds were extremely comfortable. There are flexible reading lights located on top of the bed area if you wanna have a read in bed. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful and check-out was a breeze. It is pricey but so are a lot of hotels in Tokyo. I highly recommend a stay here!
The room had a trouser press, which I hadn't seen until our stay here.

Sakura Hostel Asakusa: Sakura Hostel Asakusa
This place is cozily tucked away near Senso-ji Temple and Kaminarimon Gate in a quiet little neighborhood near a fun fair. You are greeted by a very clean common room area. The hosts were pleasant and welcomed us after a long weary day of travel. Our room had six bunks and we were provided our own linen, with a blanket already on the bed.
Breakfast is served til about ten. 325 yen will get you a simple breakfast, hot soup and toast and your choice of teas. They do have free things for rent if you need such as an iron and ironing board. If you forgot to bring a towel, they rent those for 100 yen. 1000 yen deposit is added for the use of your room key, and is promptly given back to you upon your departure.
I really enjoyed my stay here. It was quiet for being a hostel. It is located in a great area and a perfect base for exploring the Asakusa area. It is well kept and each floor has shower stalls and toilets. The showers are private with a closing door and a shower door. The water pressure was great! I definitely recommend staying here while you are in Tokyo.

APA Hotel Roppongi Itchome
The APA Hotel Roppongi Itchome is located in the quiet embassy neighborhood of Tokyo, but still very centrally located between Roppongi, Akasaka, Ginza and other interesting areas of the city.
This APA, like so many of the others I've stayed in at Shibuya, Ginza, and Yokohama is very new, clean, and friendly. The hotels almost always feel brand new inside. This one has a nice restaurant on the first floor, free wi-fi internet, refrigerators and hot water in the rooms. We paid about 13,000 Yen per room on a Sunday night around New Years, but the rooms are often less expensive.
My only complaint? The neighborhood immediate around the hotel is dead quiet at night, so you have to take a train or taxi a short distance to find any nightlife.

APA Hotel Ginza Kyobashi
I really like APA hotels. I have stayed at three or four of their properties in Tokyo and Yokohoma, and they are always modern, clean, and friendly. The APA hotel in Ginza Kyobashi was no exception.
I booked my room online for 12,000 Yen a night ($121 US), but prices vary quite a bit depending on night of the week and local events. We arrived at Tokyo Station, and took the short stroll through the quiet northern are of Ginza to the hotel. Check in was quick and easy in this modern hotel, even when using a foreign credit card. The rooms were small but comfortable.
Nice hotel, clean rooms, good service, pretty good location near the metro, but quiet neighborhood.

Toyoko Inn Asakusa Kuramae Kaminarimon: Small room but all that we needed
We spent the first few nights of our trip at this Western style hotel on the southern fringes of Asakusa. It's nothing fancy, and our room was on the small side (as is common in Japan), but it's in a very good location just 10 minutes' walk from the temple of Senso-ji.
Unfortunately for weary travellers the hotel has a check-in time of 16.00 so when we arrived late morning we could do little more than leave our bags and head out again to start sight-seeing. But when we returned later we got a friendly welcome, some soft drinks and toiletries as "gifts" (including a gel that claimed to be able turn my "ugly body" into one fit to be seen at celeb parties - yes, really!) and even the offer of a sterilised nightgown!
Our room was on the tenth floor but had no view other than of the wall of the next-door building. It was dominated by a large, comfortable bed, and we had everything else we needed for our stay too, including a bathroom with shower, washbasin and fancy Japanese toilet (heated seat, spray washes etc). There was a mini-bar, TV, hair dryer, kettle for tea-making and even slippers. But storage was minimal - I wouldn't want to spend more than a few days here.
Breakfast is served in the lobby area and is a small but adequate buffet of mainly Japanese items (miso soup, rice) but also small pastries and slices of cake. The coffee was almost strong enough for my taste, and we supplemented the included breakfast with juice from the inevitable vending machine (100¥ for a generous can of orange or apple Tropicana).
Next tip: a much-needed cup of coffee

APA Hotel Shibuya-Dogenzaka-Ue
We recently stayed at the APA Hotel Shibuya-Dogenzaka-Ue, located about a 10 minute walk from Shibuya Station, and even closer to Shinsen Station. Rooms were only 8,800 Yen a night on jalan.net, a great rate for central Tokyo.
The front lobby was clean and modern, with a friendly staff. We tried to pay using their check in booths, but they had trouble accepting my US credit card, so we checked in the old fashioned way, in person. The rooms were tiny, with bathrooms about the size you'd expect to see on an airplane, and beds barely wide enough for two people. Also, the view from our room was poor, looking directly into the wall of a neighboring building 3 meters away. Otherwise, the hotel was good, with large screen TVs, refrigerators and WiFi in each room, comfortable beds (with hard pillows), and friendly staff.
APA is an acronym that stands for Always Pleasant Amenity. There are 74 hotels in the chain, with nearly 17,000 rooms across Japan.

NRT - Narita Airport: Overnight at airport
After missing my flight I chose to stay overnight at the airport. The hostels that I saw online were around $50 and most of them only had men's dorms :-( They will not let you stay in the gate area so I had to fill out customs forms and proceed into the baggage claim area. There were about 20 people also staying overnight at the airport and they only let us stay in this one sitting (meeting) area in baggage claim. They had a security officer standing by all night and took down all of our names, passport numbers and departing flights. The seats were cushioned so I had a good sleep :-)

APA Hotel Ikebukuro-eki Kita-guchi: New, cheap but really small hotel
Very cheap, clean and modern looking hotel. Staff are friendly and very helpful.
7min walk from Ikebukuro's west exit.
Downside? The rooms are so painfully small.
There is literally no space to even open your luggage.
The room is about 9-10m2 and comes with an ensuite and extremely small cubical unit toilet.
Great for those with a tight budget and picky with cleanliness.
But i really would not recommend it if you are not small in size.

Sakura House is a very decent indeed. Stayed there myself for several years (4 different locations)! Very reasonably priced (around 70 000 yen/month), easy to deal with and clean houses. If you ever go to Japan again I would recommend them.

Sunroute Shimbasi: Central accommodation for a reasonable price
I second the Sunroute Shimbashi! @SP recommended it to me for my September 2011 visit to Tokyo and I was very pleased with it! The room is small but had everything you need - even a bath tub and tea making facilities! It even has a ladies' floor with extra amenities for ladies! ;-)
I could see Tokyo Tower from my window. The hotel is also very close to the Shimbashi station and walking distance to Ginza! Food in the area is plentiful and wonderful! And there's a Wilson's connected to the ground floor of the hotel via an internal door.
