After several trips to Tokyo w/o visiting this neighborhood city, we finally decided to spend a full day here during our recent trip. We booked this hotel as there's not a lot of cheap choices at the city centre, while this place offers great rates on weekdays except Saturday night. We were not disappointed.
The stay started perfectly as we took the airport shuttle from the Haneda airport that arrives directly to the hotel entrance so basically there's no walking which is a big bonus. Hotel staff greeted us with good English. It was a huge hotel with many floors and rooms. It's aged but clean, definitely a 3 star.
The twin room I stayed should be recently renovated with large HDTV, and is clean and modest in size. Each room should have a good view of the city as it's relatively tall. It has a *huge* (in Japanese hotel standard) bathroom with a long bath tub, which is really surprising. Bed is hard but manageable.
Each room has LAN-only Internet connection, but okay for us as we brought a wireless router.
Although the website stated 0min from JR station / metro station it does require a little walk (get an umbrella in case it rains!). For those who is planning to go to waterfront area, there is a special pass that allows you to take unlimited "city gov't" subway from Shin Yokohama to that area, plus the tourist bus there, making it very convenient and well worth to stay here.
Given the good rate we had (less than 10k yen) I'm very satisfied with this hotel, and would recommend it to everyone.
