We got a fairly nice, but basic hotel in Tokyo, just south of Shinagawa (where we stayed with Deborah and Bernie).
We really like the area, it has a number of nice-looking restaurants, an independent grocery store and a lively main street leading from the station.
We made sure to get a room with enough space, and a desk for Susannah to study on (these pictures are from a few days into the trip, we couldn’t get it that messy on the first day).
This hotel is nice but it has some peculiarities. For example, they don’t give you bottles of shampoo. They have a case of various small toiletry packets and you can choose five each day. The packets are all sorts of things including shampoo, conditioner, face wash, and tea.
The bed also didn’t have any pillows, but in the lobby there is a pillow buffet where they have a bunch of different pillows organized by width, and soft/hard.
It’s actually kind of nice.
