“Highly Accessible Above Shin Yokohama Station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This was a great central location for a couple nights with business in the area. The rooms were excellent by Japan standards for a single room and meticulously clean. Also, the breakfast had a good variety and is in a nice setting. This hotel can be accessed by any form of transport. In my case, limo bus from Narita airport and then Shinkansen on the way out. If you need a central location or have business nearby, this is a great spot.

My stay was 2012 from Nov 18 to Nov 28 for business reasons. I have chosen this hotel because it was close to my working place. The hotel from Narita airport can be directly reached by a shuttle bus. My room was a “moderate double suite”. I unfortunately have chosen the smoker variant. The room had a terrible smell of old cigarette smoke. It was hard to bear. The overall room area is 23 m². Because this includes bathroom, corridor and wardrobe, not much space is remaining for the room itself. Except the carpet everything was clean. There is water heater with complementary tea and water, but no instant coffee available. On TV you only have BBC and CNN with English language the other channels are Japanese only .The free WiFi access is limited in speed. For faster connection an extra fee has to be paid. The breakfast doesn’t offer a huge choice, but in general is ok for continental and Asian guests. If you pay attention to comfort and space it is recommended to choose another hotel. There is no fitness center available. The hotel itself is directly above the Shin-Yokohama railway station with access to Shinkansen high speed train as well. Within the same building there is also a small shopping mall with some restaurants as well. Close by there are also some other restaurants and stores. ATM’s are directly at the elevators to the hotel lobby. To Yokohama downtown or Tokyo city you can get by train easily. Don’t hesitate to use the public transport system. It is not cheap but cheaper than a taxi and you can reach all places within moderate time. Japan in general is not a place for shopping because everything is more expensive than in any other country.

Second stay at the Shin Yokohama and am always happy with the hotel. For those business travellers coming in from Narita, its an extra connection in central Tokyo which can be a pain with bags compared to the normal Narita Express heading to Musashi Kosugi but all in all its quite easy. Very well located and with plenty of food options around. My suggestion is to try the food courts downstairs in the main building which offer much more than the dining options outside the foyer of the restaurant. Only negative was the limited facilities so any spare time is idle but other than that a good quality hotel convenient for work trips.

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!
