Budget stay at Fukusen Hotel @ Tokyo, Japan

This is a family run hotel which you may find some personal touch in a way that you live with a Japanese family. The location is good as its just beside Minami-Senju station. I am fortunate to get an accommodation during the peak time of sakura season as most of the hostel and hotel are fully book and its quite tough to get good single room. Most of the left over room are capsule type which I find it inconvenience. Nearby there are many convenience stores and eating places. You should be able to find a shop open if you are hungry at night. The room, bathroom & toilet are very clean. They even have private onsen bath but it have timing on it. Do check it out. Every aspect of which is needed is well thought of. Even though Minami Senju is far from Tokyo city centre but you may opt to take Chuo line to Shinjuku. Its only 25 minutes from Minami Senju station with a change in Akihabara station which is more interesting than taking the metro line which has many stops and will require at least 45 minutes of travelling time.

However, there is always smoke smell on the lobby of the hotel. Curfew at 23.30 and not suitable for those who like to stay out late at night. Please make sure that you back to the hotel by 23.30. They will only reopen at 8.00 in the morning. There is train sound passing by as the distance is very close to the train station. However the sound shouldn't be a problem from 24.00 until 6.00 as there is no train services during that time.

Rating:9/10(Recommended for everyone either solo traveller, budget traveller, partner or family. The location, service and wifi is great. The place is quiet and you can rest well at night after whole day of travelling in Tokyo. Other that what I highlighted above, other thing not a problem).
Price:Around 3150 Yen or MYR100 for a single room per night. Good for budget traveller who wants privacy and convenience.

Finally arrived at Fukusen hotel.

Small TV in the room.

You need to keep your shoes in the locker each time you are back to this hotel. You need to wear their slipper in the hotel.
