“Extremely convenient for the Shinkansen, wonderful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

Stayed here with a friend for a few days in late May - a great hotel with a staff that speaks English very well, and in a prime location for anyone taking the Tokaido Shinkansen - the station is about 5 minutes away from the hotel, and the hotel is very easy to find as I think it's the tallest building in the area. We were on the 39th floor or somesuch and had wonderful views of Yokohama.

The hotel is accessible through "Prince Pepe", a hilariously named shopping mall with a few conbinis and various stores inside. Great to grab a quick cheap breakfast or a beer. As all hotels in Japan should be, the hotel is also well-equipped with vending machines too.

LAN internet is available in the room; I would have preferred Wi-Fi but that doesn't appear to be the norm in Japan. I brought a wireless router with me and that worked great, as long as I used the ethernet cable they provided.

One word of advice - the top-floor bar is very nice but they do charge I think a ¥1000 cover charge we were unaware of until the bill came. Oh well.

Hotel is close to shin yokohama shinkansen station. Has a very nice restaurant on the 40th floor (a little bit expensive but ok for Japanese food). The view from the restauratn is very nice. tHE hotel is very clean and there is a shuttle bus to the Narita airport. (takes about 2 hours). It also offers free WLAN access.

The decor of the room is filthy- the walls have yellowed unfortunately not evenly so the color is from off white to dark brown. I think the ceiling is ment to be white, probably was some decades ago.Otherwise generally clean. Amazing, this high rise tower building has single glazed windows- very cold in one half of the room. Typical Japanese hotel room,matchbox size filled with minture wardrobe, desk, bed and a plastic kisok for a bathroom. This highly connected country cannot provide wireless in the room so they give you a 2 meter lan cable to connect your laptop to you can work from the bed and be warm at the same time. Needless to say that guests cannot control the airconditioning.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2010

This hotel is on the outskirts of the city centre called Shin Yokohama, near the JR and local subway stations so getting around Yokohama is convenient. Especially if you're visiting the city as a tourist - as you'll probably be going away from the area all of the time. Otherwise, due to its good business/conference facilities, for the business traveller would be good.

The main attractions nearby are the adjacent shopping malls (2 of them, one of which is a huge electronics megastore) above the JR station, the Yokohama area (for concerts), Nissan Stadium (venue of the 2002 FIFA world cup final, and Ramen museum, all of which can be visited within half a day.

The rooms are small though, but that seems to be quite typical of most Japanese hotels i've stayed in.

Since, we needed a Hotel near Shin Yokohama station, we stayed at this Hotel. Rooms are average (nothing great - just basic). We liked breakfast (Yen 1600 per person) very much which had a big spread suitable for Japanese as well as internation traveller.

the hotel is a big tower over a 5 fl commercial center very close to the shinkansen station making this hotel an ideal choice for whom in possess of a JR pass. The area, like all Japan, is very convenient as there are 24h shops and is well organized, but there is no special reason to stay here if without a pass or if not for business in the area. Staff are very helpful and kind; any way all over Japan people are kind and helpful, making this country the perfect one in the world. I recommend this hotel as I recommend all Japan. I think that this is the only country where next time I will reserve any kind of accommodation being sure to receive a perfect service in any case.
Plus: in the building there is an Italian pizzeria marked as VERA PIZZA DI NAPOLI ... not tried but this should be a guarantee

This hotel can be reached with a 5 mn walk from Shin-Yokohama Shinkansen. So getting to/from Tokyo center is quick & easy. There are lots of small restaurant/bars/shops around, yet there is not much to do there at night. The hotel is inside a tower above a shopping mall, it is modern, rooms are not very large but confortable with everything you need for business. Breakfast is very good with a choice of japanese or western style. It is located in the heart of Shin-Yokohama business district so a lot of companies are within walking distance.
