Capsule hotel Anshin Oyado
A capsule hotel is a space-saving type of hotel developed in Japan. It features a large number of extremely small rooms/capsules which give you more privacy than sharing a room in a hostel.
They are perfect if you just need somewhere to spend the night and don’t mind sharing the bathroom. The rooms are quite convenient for the price since most of them are very clean and well equipped.
Out of capsule hotels in Akihabara, we recommend Anshin Oyado because:
1. The whole basement is the communal bath area where, besides the shower, they have mist sauna, too.
2. You can also use the cafe and the semi-private common area free of charge.
3. What excels them from other capsule hotels is that they use high-quality mattresses and even offer VIP rooms.

Internet cafes are the most affordable places to spend the night in Japan. However, you can also to in these places for at any time of day to take a rest or enjoy their extensive manga collection, or simply surf the internet.
Here you can get a cubicle usually equipped with a computer. Some of them have mattresses comfortable enough to sleep on.
These are our picks for places to spend the night in Akihabara. However, if you have the time you could probably find a bigger choice of nice hostels and hotels in Asakusa which is, not only a station away but it is also close to other exciting tourist spots.
Many tourists choose this town to stay in because of its traditional atmosphere. Thanks to the Sensoji Temple, Asakusa has been a hub for tourists for many years.
Also, the atmosphere is the complete opposite of Akihabara and here you can discover a different side of Tokyo.
