Want some peace and quiet but still want to be near where all the action is? Try the Hotel Sunlite Shinjuku, which is in Shinjuku Ward but is in a quiet neighborhood away from all the chaos that comes from the Skyscraper District and Kabukicho.
The deal for single travelers is OK but not great – $79 a night – but at 10,000 yen ($100) for a double, it's a pretty nice price for couple travelers or others who don't mind sharing a bed.
By the way, Shinjuku is one of the most active spots on the west side of Tokyo. If you still need to know where everything is, check out the Konnichiwhoa guide.
