“Beautiful View of the Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The hotel is in a very central location. Ask for a view of Yokohama Bay which is beautiful. The room smelled of smoke, as I have found many in Japan do. I a, so surprised that you can smoke in so many places in Japan. The breakfast was much more than I could eat and the bed was comfortable. The room is small but adequate and the individual coffee maker is a nice touch with good coffee. The is no safe deposit box so I had to leave my computer at the front desk when I went out but not a bad hotel for the price. It's close to the Motomachi-Chykagai Station.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the bay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

I stayed here for a number of nights last September.

Star Hotel is in a good location next to Yamashita Park and is a short walk from China Town and Motomachi. The train connections are also very good. Connected to the hotel is Eggs n' Things, a Hawaiian restaurant with huge pancakes and cream, waffles, and other breakfast type items. There is always a long line but it's worth the wait!

The rooms are quite small with a very small bathroom, but they are always very clean and simply decorated. TVs are small, with Japanese only programs. There is a small mini fridge too.

The staff are always friendly and speak a little English.

The only thing is that the hotel looks a little outdated. But overall very comfortable!

I had a twin harbor view room. For one person it was very comfortable. There was enough room in the entry way to even do my yoga which I hadn't expected. The room was very tidy and in good repair. Great water pressure. No English-speaking TV stations on TV. Bento breakfast was tasty but was the same every day. Front desk staff were excellent. They were exceptionally cheerful, polite and helpful. Directly across the street was the promenade. That ran into parks and trails so we had great exercise. In 15 minutes of walking you could be in a trendy part of town. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here 2 days with my Dad - our twin room was tiny (one of us had to sit on the bed when the other was walking around) - but our room overlooked the harbor, China Town, Motomachi and the Sea Bus were just minutes away and the hotel coffee shop had good food and comfortable chairs by the window to watch the dog walking/jogging/kids playing action in Yamashita Park.

Some of the staff spoke good English and there were English language papers on sale in the lobby and the BS TV had English...all in all - a good stay.
