How to Find a Convenient Hotel for a Better Business Trip
There are hundreds of hotels in Tokyo. Choosing one might be a trouble for you, no matter which you are the person who really visit Japan or a secretary to make a reservation for someone else. To make the matters worse, Tokyo’s maps and train route maps are complicated.
The secret to book an appropriate hotel is to choose one by your destination, NOT the hotel’s brand name nor the reputations on TripAdvisor.
If the company you are visiting is located in Ginza, it is not a very good idea to stay at Hilton Tokyo Hotel located in Shinjuku in spite of their outstanding guestrooms. It's because it will be annoying to find the right subway in the massive station, arrive at the 8th station and walk to the office with a map in your hand.
It is better to find a hotel as close to the office in Ginza as possible. Then you will prepare for your presentation in your guestroom and walk to the office.

Hotels at the price of 5,500 - 9,000 yen are called "Business Hotels." They are comfortable enough to stay and provide facilities necessary for business people though they are not very luxury. APA Hotels, Dormy Inns, Toyoko Inns, etc. are business hotel chains and others are trustworthy as well.
