Business Hotels are clean and comfortable "no-frills" lodgings often conveniently located within easy reach of public transportation. These hotels are usually smaller and offer fewer facilities than their deluxe counterparts. Room service is not generally available but most business hotels provide vending machines for snacks and drinks and many have their own restaurants. Accommodation is usually limited to single rooms - ideal for the business traveller. Prices generally range between ¥6,000 and ¥9,000 per person, per night*.
An good example of a business hotel chain in Japan is the Toyoko Inn group.
