    Anyone ever stay at Tokyu Stay?

    Yeah man that's how it is in JP they charge by the # of people staying there. A single for 2 people will be tight, you're better off payin a few extra thousand yen and get a double. Never been in Tokyu Stay but I have been a handful of other hotels and a single even for 1 is dreadfully small unless you staying in a five star.

    Not-so-expensive-yet-cheap Hotels in Tokyo

    Yeah hit the weekly mansion. you may need a friend to help you book a room but it's best bang for the buck. There is no maid service but there is a kitchen. The size is bigger then a hotel single. The one I stayed at had a washing machine/dryer too.

    Excelsior Hotel in HK

    Has anyone stayed in the Excelsior Hotel located in Causeway Bay? How is that area for nightlife? I have a choice between that hotel and Kowloon Hotel located in Tsim Sha Tsui. If I remember correctly the Kowloon hotel is connected to the Harbour City mall. Which would be the better choice between the two? Also any recommondations on general nightlife would be appreciated. Lounges, bars, clubs, restaurants, ect...... Thanks!
