I was in Yokohama to go around the Kanagawa area after some meetings in Tokyo. As I haven't been to Yokohama in a long while I was not familiar with hotels in the area aside from the more expensive ones in the Minato Mirai district. I found the New Otani over the internet and decided to try it out as its location is great (i.e., It's a short walk to/from the train station). The staff spoke English well and were very accommodating as I arrived early and had to leave my luggage first so I could explore the city.
My room turned out to be really good with a great view of the bay (refer to the photos). My bed was comfortable and afforded me a good rest after full days of walking around Yokohama and Kamakura. The room had a safe where I could put in my notebook and valuables so I didn't have to worry about them. A pleasant feature is the piped in sounds of the sea as you walk along the corridors. There was high speed internet available at the room though to connect you need a LAN cable (which the hotel provided).
Overall experience at the hotel was excellent and I would definitely stay there again the next time I'm in Yokohama.More
