Home to the driverless Yurikamome train, the tech-obsessed Akihabara district and the Kanda Myojin Shrine (where tourists can have their electronics blessed), Tokyo is the capital of connectivity.
According to Booking.com reviewers, these hotels have the best WiFi in Tokyo*.
Hotel Ryumeikan Ochanomizu Honten
1. Hotel Ryumeikan Ochanomizu Honten, Chiyoda, Tokyo
More than 100 years old and right next to Akihabara Electric Town (aka the city’s electronic goods and video games centre), this hotel has been voted to have the best WiFi connection in Tokyo. After a recent refurbishment, Hotel Ryumeikan provides modern facilities combined with traditional Japanese aesthetics.
Tokyo Hikari Guesthouse
2. Tokyo Hikari Guesthouse, Taito, Tokyo
Taito is one of the oldest districts in Tokyo and has a reputation for taking a step back from the hectic, hypermodern pace of life in the rest of the city. Cosy guesthouses like the Tokyo Hikari have easy access to the local markets and ancient temples alongside great WiFi connections to help plan last-minute excursions.
Palace Hotel Tokyo
3. Palace Hotel Tokyo, Chiyoda, Tokyo
At the Palace Hotel Tokyo, right next to Tokyo’s Imperial Palace, the staff goes out of its way to provide guests with every possible luxury. Including an Evian Spa, authentic Japanese cooking at the three hotel restaurants, a fitness centre, and a WiFi connection so fast that it’ll give you whiplash.
Imperial Hotel Tokyo
4. Imperial Hotel Tokyo, Chiyoda, Tokyo
Another regal hotel in the quirky Chiyoda district, Imperial Hotel Tokyo manages a delicate balancing act between providing guests with all the mod-cons, while retaining the area’s rich history. Tea ceremony demonstrations and guided tours of the Imperial Palace are all underpinned by the hotel’s state-of-the-art audio-visual units and high-speed WiFi.
Family Inn Saiko
5. Family Inn Saiko, Toshima, Tokyo
Travellers in search of an authentic, traditional Japanese experience will love the Family Inn Saiko where Tatami (woven straw) flooring and futon beds in the bedroom compliment the hotel-supplied Japanese sleepwear. Meanwhile the high-speed WiFi helps guests capture every moment for posterity/Facebook.
Park Hyatt Tokyo
6. Park Hyatt Tokyo, Shinagawa Ward, Tokyo
Views of Mount Fuji while staying in the heart of the lively Shinagawa Ward make this hotel extremely popular, but it’s the free high-speed WiFi connection that really attracts praise from our reviewers. Hardly surprising when you see the view from the Park Hyatt Tokyo’s 52nd floor restaurant; a view so impressive you’ll want to use the rapid WiFi to immediately upload photos of it across all social media platforms
The Edo Sakura
7. The Edo Sakura, Taito, Tokyo
Visitors to The Edo Sakura can choose between sleeping on traditional Japanese futons or Western beds, with some guests asking to swap mid-way so they can experience both. And, while comfort within the hotel is a priority, the staff also assists guests navigating the outside world by recommending online maps and useful apps.
Centurion Ladies Hostel Ueno Park
8. Centurion Ladies Hostel Ueno Park, Taito, Tokyo
This ladies-only hostel is based right next to Ueno Park and has amazing views of the trees during cherry blossom season, making it super romantic and popular with couples.

Richmond Hotel Asakusa
9. Richmond Hotel Asakusa, Taito, Tokyo
