OK. I agree, the hotel needs updating. And if your main destination is Yokohama, then the Shin-Yokohama Prince is not the place to stay. By subway - a solid 20 minutes. But in reading reviews here, I see NO MENTION of the single greatest feature of this hotel: The Beer Garden. It's only open in the summer, but they have this HUGE tower of beer that they bring to your table from which you pour/share with others at the table. The staff is great, the food excellent. There is an extra charge for using the swimming pool - it is not included in your room rate. But check it out: http://www.welcome.city.yokohama.jp/eng/travel/trend_reports/2009/07.html
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Shin Yokohama is a sculptured, urban-style building rising 42 floors above ground. The gentle, cylindrical shape gives it a futuristic appeal. Just 16 minutes from downtown Tokyo, the hotel is connected to the Shin Yokohama Shinkansen Station and the Shopping Plaza Prince Pepe, making it a convenient hub for both business and leisure activities. The area surrounding the hotel is in itself a large amusement complex featuring various sports facilities, including a skating rink, indoor tennis courts and bowling alleys. Also nearby are the landmarks of exotic Yokohama city, Chinatown, the hillside parks and the Yokohama Bay port. ... more less
