1. What’s “Toyoko Inn” ?

Toyoko Inn is Japanese a hotel chain and the hotels are not only in Tokyo but also all over Japan. 38 hotels are in Tokyo 23 wards. The greatest trait of Toyoko Inn is the hotel’s lower accomodation fee as much as possible because they have reduced the cost thoroughly. You can use a laptop connected to the Internet in the lobby for free. You can also drink water from a water server and use ice from an ice maker for free. You can copy and use FAX and laundromat with a fee. In a guest room you can use free wi-fe and LAN cable. In the lobby you can eat rice balls, miso soup, a few types of breads and several types of side dishes for a break fast. Side dishes are different depending on the hotels. They don’t offer dinner, but you can bring any food in the hotels. In most hotels their interior is almost the same.

2. How to book “Toyoko Inn” more cheaply

You have several ways to book the hotels more cheaply.

(1) You can get a discount if booking the hotels on the homepage

You can get a about 1,60 EURO or 2,00 USA dollars discount if you book the hotels on their official homepage. If you pay the accommodation fee by credit card before you check in, you can also get a about 1,60 EURO or 2,00 USA dollars discount furthermore.

(2) You can get a discount if staying at the hotels for over 2 days

You can get a 2,40 EURO or 3,00 USA dollars discount depending on the hotels if you stay at the hotels for over 2 days. This is called the “eco plan”. They don’t clean up in your guest room and don’t exchange towels but fill amenities if you stay at the hotels by this eco plan. But you don’t always use this eco plan. You can use this eco plan only 1 day every 2 days because of sanitation. For example, if you stay at the hotels for 3 days, you can use this eco plan only for the second day or third day. Toyoko Inn Tokyo Kamata No.1 doesn’t offer this eco plan.
