5 Best Hotels in Tokyo for Families [Top Picks]

Do you want to know where are the best hotels in Tokyo for families?

Are you going to Japan soon and want to reserve the best hotel you can find for yourself and your loved ones?

In this ultimate Tokyo hotel guide, we’ve carefully selected the best hotels and hostels in Japan to fit your travel budget and your needs.

Note that all of these hotel recommendations are good for 4 people (2 adults and 2 kids), so if you have fewer people in your family, they can even be more affordable. Let’s get started!

Which area is best to stay in Tokyo?

I’ve been to Tokyo for 9x now (and Japan for 10x) as of February 2024, so I consider myself pretty familiar with the city’s tourist scene.

After all, I’ve had 3 multiple-entry visas with Japan already 🙂

Based on my travel experience with my family, the best areas to stay in Tokyo for first-timer are the neighborhoods of Ueno, Shinjuku, Tokyo Station and Shibuya.


Wondering where to stay in Tokyo with kids?

Ueno is the #1 place to stay if you have children with you on your trip.

First, Ueno Park offers abundant outdoor space, mini-train rides, paddle boats, and the renowned Ueno Zoo.

Also, it’s home to Ameyoko Shopping District where you can buy cheap pasalubong to take home with you on your trip back home.

Shinjuku is definitely the best place to stay in Tokyo for first time visitors, especially if you’re staying for less than a week.

We love its FREE viewing deck at the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building, where kids and adults can enjoy panoramic city views.

Also, Shinjuku Gyoen National Garden is a must-visit for your family with its spacious lawns and beautiful gardens.

Plus, the area is known for its shopping and entertainment district in Kabukicho, offering diverse dining options and exciting experiences.

Shibuya is a fantastic destination for families traveling with children and adults alike.
