The Mitsui chain of hotels in Japan have really nailed the balance of comfort and cost, and such is the demand that they now have three in the Ginza area to choose from. The Millenium Garden is their newest venture, opened 2014. The location is fantastic, looking out onto Tokyo's oldest and most revered Kabuki theatre. We highly recommend seeing one act of a full preformance while in the city - tickets can easily be bought on the day at the theatre. While the Mitsui does stick to a particular formula, it's one that works - staff are better trained to converse with foreign visitors, rooms are smartly appointed and slightly bigger than the average in Tokyo (though not suitable for those with several suitcases). This hotel has two themed 'gold leaf' and 'pearl' rooms for those looking for an extra something from the decor. Breakfasts have a good selection of both Japanese and Western dishes, with all day dining and bar open until midnight.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.Bill Bryson
