Going to tokyo for three weeks in may and june. Gonna go round the rest of the country but i finish on the 13th and have given myself three days shoppin in Tokyo at the end of it (fly on the 16th). I'm after a cool hotel (pref under £100 a night) with sky views. What areas should i go for gadgets and clothes... Any tips would be great.

gadgets - what are you looking for? digital camera? laptops? i would recommend sakuraya, bic camera, sofmap and etc. i wouldnt recommend akihabara - it's like a maze.

clothes - daikanyama, (ura) harajyuku, omotesandou,
i think O1City and O1O1 in shibuya are underrated...

i like the excel tokyu hotel in akasaka. they have a plan
called the e-akasaka plan. a single room should cost you like
11,000 yen or so. The nicer rooms are a bit more expensive.
the akasaka subway station is right across the street from hotel
and its proximity to shibuya/omotesando makes it the one of the best (inexpensive) hotels in tokyo.

Hotel sunroute in Shinjuku. You can search google for it.
It's great and the staff are real friendly.

Think everything else has been said.
If you can fit it in:

gadgets - Akihabara

shopping - Harajuku and above.

I recommend trying to stay at the Claska. www.claska.com or check the SuperFuture Tokyo hotel page. I say try because the place has less than a dozen rooms.

Anyway, I stayed there twice - at the beginning and end of a trip last September. One of the rooms was around 11,000 and the other 13,000. Very cool hotel - nice rooms, great staff, cool bar downstairs. It's a little out of the way, but I actually like that. If you're used to riding subways, it's a snap.

It's a couple of stops from Naka Meguro, which is a district I liked a lot, I agree that for clothing, Harajuku is a good bet.

have fun!

Just stayed at Hotel Excellent in Ebisu. Convienient ( right across the street from Ebisu eki), and less than a hundred pounds, I think around 160USD...
