“Hotel Associa Shin-Yokohama”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I stayed for a almost a week in Associa Shin-Yokohama. I had the perfect stay at this hotel and there are only very little things to criticize which is there is not restaurant in hotel itself but location is so good that you are spoiled for the choices of Restaurants.
Nice rooms with nice view...very friendly staff.

Have been several time to that Hotel and never been disappointed. I would rate it a 4 Star Hotel according to international standards, Hotel offers most services you may need during a business trip and provided you do not want to spend major leisure time there.
They have got larger and smaller rooms, if you require something coming close to international / U.S. sized rooms, you may want to mention that at the time of making your reservation.
Breakfast seletion was ok for me but others may find it somewhat limited. Breakfast room can be crowded during 'peak hours'

Hotel is conveniently located above Shinkansen-, local train and subway station - perfect if you travel in and out of Shin Yokohama by train. Convenient stores, restaurants and Starbucks in the same buildings, a few floors below the Hotel which is located in the upper floors of the building.

Room Tip: ask for 'large room' if you require a room coming close to standard U.S. sized rooms.

Just returned from a business trip and spent 1 week in the Associa Shin-Yokohama.

What can I say? I had the perfect stay at this hotel and there are only very little things to criticize.

First of all, upon arrival at Narita Airport there is a limousine bus that takes you directly to Shin-Yokohama station (around 105 minutes depending on traffic conditions). The hotel is literally built inside Shin Yokohama Station and occupies parts of the 10th to 19th floor of Shin-Yokohama station. The other part is an electronics shop called 'Big Camera' (floors 3 to 9 if I remember correctly), a Takashimaya Food Center, a book store and also restaurants on the 10th floor. So, transportation, shopping and dining are all in one building.

Now for the hotel: Check in was a breeze very friendly and I got a room on the 19th floor with excellent view. There are basically only two downsides as far as the rooms are concerned:

1.) The rooms are tiny and very small so that there is hardly any space to put your suitcase.

2.) There are only 2 English TV channels (CNN and BBC News) - not exactly the most exciting channels to relax in bed after a long day in the office, but well, there is free internet which serves very well as a window to the English speaking world.

Apart from that, the bathroom has o.k. size, is well equipped and the bed was one of the most comfortable ones I ever had in a hotel. Everything is extremly clean and well maintained so that the hotel looked like brand new to me.

I did not try breakfast in the Associa Lounge on the 12th floor, so I cannot commment on the food quality.

All in all: An excellent experience in a great hotel in a central location.

Room Tip: High Floor (for a great view)!

Good overall deal for this hotel.
Clean, perfectly located (just above the Shin-Yokohama train + Shinkansen station) and in the same building than Bic Store (7 stories of stores and restaurants) and relatively cheap.
Bad side is the service, very minimal. The breakfast also is poor.
But for one night in Yokohama, for business, I recommend!

This hotel locates right on top of the Shin-Yokohama station (10th floor above), it is very convenient if you plan to do a lot of traveling in Japan. The hotel room is on the small side, the working desk is very small, especially if you want do some serous computer work. Internet speed was good. Breakfast selection was adequate but not very impressive. Hotel staff were very polite and helpful.

Located above the Shin-Yokohama train station and a pretty large shopping centre with many food and shopping options (including a very large BIC Camera store), the Hotel Associa Shin-Yokohama is extremely convenient to the Shinkansen Line, JR Yokohama Line and the Yokohama Subway making connections extremely easy.

The rooms were spotless and the furnishings show little signs of wear, the bathroom was also spotless and clean. The beds were also pretty comfortable and the views from the 18th floor of Yokohama city at night was a plus. However, the only English TV channels are BBC and CNN. The complementary wi-fi was very easy to connect to and the internet speed was one of the fastest i've experienced in many hotels.

A buffet breakfast which is served in the "lounge" on the 12th floor was substantial, however, as the other reviews have pointed out, the selection was pretty much the same throughout my 3 night stay. Despite that, the pastries (especially the croissants) were very good. There was also complementary tea, coffee and juice throughout the day.

Despite some minor setbacks, the hotel has delivered much more than most standard business hotels in Japan. The staff were also courteous and helpful and spoke very good English. I would not hesitate to return to this hotel whenever my travels take me back to Yokohama.

Located at the top floors of the high rise building, this is a perfect location for a business stay in Shin Yokohama. The Shinkansen 'bullet train' provide fast access to Tokyo (Shinagawa, Tokyo central etc) and other Japanese cities, and the station/platforms are right at ground level of this very building. Step out of your train, spend time in the shopping malls and numerous food stores and restaurants located at levels 1-9 of the building. The Hotel lobby is on floor 10, rooms are higher levels, providing excellent views over the area, up to Yokohama harbour and Tokyo Central on a clear day. Rooms are comfortable and well furnished. Breakfast is a very good mix of Japanese and western food. Unfortunately the hotel does not have any room service or restaurants of its own, so for dinner, you must go out, if only to the various restaurants within the building itself. Excellent sushi is available on the hotel doorstep, but not in your rooms. Several offices are located just around the Shin Yokohama station, so for business travelers this is a great location for a hotel of this quality. Staff at reception are very professional and speak very good English.
