Hotel | "Toyoko Inn"
Toyoko Inn is a hotel chain. Its branches are all over major cities in Japan and are generally close to a public-transportation centers (such as within walking distance to a train station). The price range is about $80 to $100 and varies between cities and room types. There are three types of rooms: single, twin, and double. The room is small, just enough for a bed, dresser, and tiny bathroom, which can easily be forgiven by its cleanness and reasonable rate.
They offer a simple free breakfast in the lobby targeting its business-travel majority. Some branches have smoking and nonsmoking choices and others don't. I once stayed in a smoking room and didn't notice the smell (I am sensitive to the smoke). The best thing I like about it is that they all look the same. So even though we traveled several cities in Japan during 2 weeks, I always had a comfortable feeling when I went back to the hotel and didn't have to try to accommodate myself in a new place.
