Connected to Shin Yokohama Station and the Prince Pepe Shopping Plaza, the Shin Yokohama Prince Hotel is conveniently located. If you have a JR Pass, all you have to do is hop on the bullet train and you’ll be in Tokyo in under 20 minutes. There are also plenty of restaurants around. Note that the surrounding area doesn’t really have much in the way of attractions or interesting things to do.
Rooms are decently sized for Japanese hotels, and have great views of the city. Beds are firm but comfortable and rooms have all the amenities you need. Hotel staff are polite and helpful. The buffet breakfast has a wide variety of dishes from Japanese curry to raspberry Danishes. In general, a stay here is good value for money.
