This Prince Shin-Yokohama is a nice hotel in a convinient location. There are lots of eateries and shops nearby. The train station is also nearby. If you're wanting to spend a lot of time in Tokyo it is about a 30 minute train ride to the southern part of Tokyo by regular train. The rooms are clean. Small by American standards but typical size for a Japanese Hotel room. We would stay here again.
Very nice hotel, well priced and a good size compared to the typical Japanese hotel room of this style. My only complaint would be the location, in that Shin-Yokohama Station is much less convenient than Yokohama Station.
With an office in Shin-Yokohama I visit the area three or four times a year and have done for four years. Given the option I always stay in the Associa. It is, in my experience, the most comfortable and pleasant hotel in the area. I have never had a bad experience staying there.
It is definitely a business hotel and lacks the facilities of larger hotels, such as a gym or pool. However, the rooms are extremely comfortable and large by Japanese hotel standards. The bathrooms especially, put many other Japanes hotels to shame and avoid feeling like the pre-fab pods you find in many other places around the country.
Location-wise its ideal for catching the Shinkansen or metro being housed in the main station building at Shin-Yokohama. Two lift rides and a 30 second walk will have you in the station. Yokohama is fifteen minutes by metro. Shibuya or Shinjuku are 35 to 45 minutes away by metro. Tokyo and Shinagawa stations are 30 or 20 minutes away by Shinkansen. Haneda airport can be reached in 45 minutes via Yokohama.
If there are downside its the lack of a hotel restaurant and Shin-Yokohama itself. There are many eating places in the station building, including French and Italian restaurants on the same floor as the hotel lobby, but they're of variable quality and there's nothing in the Associa itself except for a lounge providing free coffee and fruit juice. Meanwhile Shin-Yokohama lacks for sightseeing appeal, with few local attractions of note.
