I’ve shared one of my cool dual voltage 100-240V travel cooker earlier and I actually carry around with me most of the time. It’s a great tool for solo travelers or those who needs some emergency cooking done.
However, for those who are traveling with 2 or more small children or with a strict dietary restriction, you may want to consider booking a hotel room that comes with a kitchenette.
Alright, then why don’t I just go for Airbnb instead?
There are still many travelers prefers to have services like daily housekeeping and a 24 hour concierge provided by hotels, and many families would like to book well managed accommodation through trusted websites like Agoda or Bookings.com for quality assurance.
Here are the top 6 hotels at the most reasonable price that comes with in-room kitchenette in Tokyo area that I have carefully selected, all located in the most popular district and rated 4 or more stars on Google.
