The nationwide Super Hotel chain in Japan is a cut-price accommodation option for both domestic and international travelers.
Usually (though not always) located near major railway stations in Japan, Super Hotels offer buffet-style breakfast starts, clean, though small, rooms and Internet access.
The majority of Super Hotel's over 100 hotels in Japan are located in Tokyo and Osaka (where the company first grew), though most large Japanese towns and cities have a Super Hotel including Aomori, Nara, Tottori, Yamaguchi, Kagawa, Kochi, Izumo and Hakata.
Check in at Super Hotels is 3pm and check out is 10pm and guests are expected to vacate their rooms for cleaning during these hours unless they confirm beforehand at the reception.
To book online in Japanese, English, Korean or Chinese, you will need to become a member after which you will receive a point card after you check in to receive reductions on future hotel bookings.
Though definitely aimed at the single male business traveler, Super Hotels offer both rooms for couples and families. A single room with breakfast will cost less than 5,000 yen and often less than this if taking advantage of special offers when booking well in advance.
