We have only just recently returned from our holiday in Japan. We stayed 12 nights in the Star Hotel Yokohama and used it as our base for day trips to Tokyo and beyond. Firstly, the staff were lovely and most spoke good English. The room we booked was a triple room which we were expecting to be quite small and cramped as we have had this experience before while in Japan, but the room was really a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of room for our three suitcases, plenty of cupboard space, plenty or room either side of the beds and still room for you to sit and work at the desk on your computer. There was a large TV on one end of the desk and tea making facilities. After the first night stay a humidifier was placed in the room which we were thankful for each night. The housekeeper would always turn the heater on so the room was warm when we returned each night even though we would turn if off each morning when we left. The ensuite bathroom had a lovely deep bath which my husband and daughter enjoyed each night after our day trips in the freezing cold. The location was just perfect for us......close to the railway station Motomachi Chukugai, but remember to take exit 4 as this is the closest to the hotel.........close to Chinatown (only two blocks)....close to Motomachi Shopping Street.........(short walking distance) and right opposite Yamashita Park for walking and sightseeing. We walked quite a few times along the park to get to our destinations........redbrick warehouse........World Porter.......Cosmo World and other sightseeing places of interest. The staff at the hotel were always pleasant when we left in the mornings with their greetings and when we arrived back at the end of the day they were ready with our room key without having to ask for it. We felt very welcomed. There was a vending machine on our floor (7th floor) near the elevator if you needed something in the line of drinks (no alcohol) we did not see an ice machine which we would have liked when we had a drink in our room later. There is the Bar on 2nd floor which we went to on our last night in the hotel. This was a nice experience....the bartender was excellent to watch very professional and very entertaining, so worth a visit although a bit pricey. All in all our stay at this hotel was wonderful and I would definitely return when next staying in Yokohama. One thing I wish the hotel had was Wi-Fi as all three of us were wanting to use laptops but there was only LAN so only one person could use at a time.
