“Nice little hotel, interesting location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I enjoyed our 2 nights at this hotel. We stayed in a small room (the smallest they had, I think), but there was plenty of room for our luggage. The bathroom was SUPER small, but it also met our needs. The hotel was very clean, modern, and friendly.

We ended up loving the location! I had originally thought we would be closer to the main part of Yokohama than we actually were; Yokohama station was a 10 or 15 minute train ride away. But the area around the hotel was much more interesting, with lots of restaurants, bars, and shopping, including an awesome supermarket and a liquor store. Be sure to explore the area underneath the hotel; we found lots of friendly restaurants, bars, and locals there.

Good :

Really enjoyed it.! Clean, simple and really nice rooms. Slippers and PJ's to cozy up in. A small fridge. Exelente shower/bathroom with everything you would need. Video on demand. Tv (only Japanese) Friendly and welcoming staff. Free Internet corner. Free coffe and tea, free little bag of beauty things (mask, oil, lotion etc) for lady's .

Not so good: breakfast is really really bad .. They try to make European food and fail in trying. No free wifi ( but then again it's no where to be found in Japan)

Hotel was great. Clean, well equipped with friendly staff (English speaking) and easy to find location right by the train station. Rooms were super nice and modern.

Only disappointment was the breakfast which was way below standard compared to the rest of the experience

We stayed here for one week in April 2011 and it was a great experience. The staff were wonderful and caring and worked so hard to communicate with us in English. The breakfasts were tasty and plentiful, again in a nice atmosphere. We had the largest suite, small by North American standards, but perfect for us. Beautiful bathroom too. Internet was free in the lobby. Hotel is surrounded by stores, restaurants, grocery stores, the train and bus stations, everything we needed. And the Narita airport bus was seconds away. When we checked out and said goodbye to everyone, tears came to our eyes. They treated us as family. We are going to stay there next year again, wouldn't look anywhere else.

After traveling around Tokyo for 2 days, I wanted to visit the spots outside Tokyo but still inside the Kanto region. I picked Yokohama as the 'home' point, and Sotetsu Fresa Inn fitted the profile well. Just 5 mins walking distance from the main train station, there's a mall next to it, a fresh market at ground level.

The room is not big, just okay. The facilities are modern. The breakfast was fine as well. The good thing about this hotel is that it's very convenient to reach after traveling around for quite some time. I did a one day trip to Kamakura, and on my way back I was so tired and luckily the hotel location is very near the train station and I could sleep soundly.

I booked this hotel again after a trip to Takayama so that on the next day I would reach Tokyo easily.
