“Standard for the price-- no frills”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

This hotel is very cheap so thus the decent score but I had to give it a 4 out of 5 due to some minor problems.
Location is.....decent. It's only 3-4 minutes walk from Koganecho station. It's 3 stops away from Yokohama station on the Keikyu line but requires a transfer for Sakuragicho, Minatomirai or Chinatown. Since you have to transfer from a private line to another private line for most of these, the cost can be a bit high for a short trip. It cost 330yen for a 10 min ride to minatomirai which is a bit steep. I was traveling to and from Pacifico Yokohama each day so it was a bit much.
Check-in was smooth and was able to have my bags stored for the day for no hassle. The staff do not have any English skills, however. Some tourists had some trouble checking-in.
Room is on par with other budget hotels in that you have basically the same amenities. Hair dryer, water kettle, aircon/heater, refrigerator and tiny TV.
However, the room showed serious signs of wear. The walls appeared dirty due to peeling off wallpaper, the desk looked like it had been bumped up against luggage one too many times and the carpet was stained. Again, not even a big deal for the price as it wasn't actually dirty.
The bed was actually slightly springier than other Tokyo beds making it tolerable. The pillows, though, are so awful. I actually flopped down on the bed and hurt myself on the pillow it was so hard. I couldn't imagine a world where a pillow hurts you until that time. I ended up using the decorative cushion because it made it feel like it wasn't a rock.
No free breakfast, the buffet is 1000yen. For the price, pretty normal but other chains would give you free breakfast though at a lesser quality.
Ethernet cables are given in the room but no free wifi but this is pretty standard business hotel fare.

Thank you very much for selecting Hotel Mystays Yokohama during your recent business travel. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. We are sorry for not providing you enough train information about surrounding area, such as Sakuragi-cho and China town. There are actually two lines, which are Keikyu line and Yokohama Municipal subway near the hotel. To get to China town and Minatomirai, you can take a subway. It is an approximately 5 minutes ride.

Thank you for your kind comments on the amenities. We apologize for inconvenience of the room. We have been fixing the room if there is a problem for daily basis. Also in terms of the pillow, there are two types of pillows that we prepared: the regular one and low rebound pillow. We definitely consider more improvements of them in the futures.

Unfortunately, we do not offer free breakfast. The breakfast cost is 1030 Japanese yen for an adult. It is a Japanese/western style of buffet.

In April, we recently have started to connect free Wifi in both lobby and rooms.

Again, thank you very much for your comment on Hotel Mystays Yokohama. We would appreciate if we could have the opportunity to welcome you back to Hotel Mystays Yokohama in the future.

I know that the booking website I used says "Please note: Preferences and requests cannot be guaranteed", but when I am offered a choice of Smoking and Non-smoking rooms and I choose Non-smoking, I think of this as a requirement, not a mere preference. I NEVER book a room which is listed on the website as Smoking, so for a hotel to give us a Smoking room (on a Smoking floor) despite our booking is a form of cheating.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker, avoid this hotel.

Thank you very much for staying Hotel Mystays Yokohama.

We are very sorry that we could not offer you a non-smoking room at that time.
We used to offer rooms that were most available at that time. It was a request bases. Since we have more smoking rooms than non-smoking, we could not response your request.

Recently we are able to offer you to choose a smoking or non-smoking room from some reservation sites. Therefore, if you choose a non-smoking, you will certainly get a non-smoking room.

Thank you very much for your comments on Hotel Mystays Yokohoma. we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back to here in the future.

Sincerely,

My family got 2 rooms at a very affordable price. Rooms include 2 beds, TV, refrigerator, bathtub. You can also use their humidifier free of charge. The place is very convenient & can be easily accessed & easy to spot (just in case your sense of direction is not so good like mine). Outside, just a few steps away is the pay parking & a bar. Cross the other side of the street, there exists many ramen shops and 2 streets behind is a kombini (convenient store 7-11). No need to worry about food (lol!). The hotel also has a restaurant & laundry service. A few blocks away is the train station (Yokohama & Koganecho Station). Everything is at walking distance. No free wi-fi, though.

I stayed there for 3 nights during a work trip. The rooms was reasonably cheap and the hotel is not too hard to find (just change train once after you arrive at yokohama station and you will be right in front of the hotel). The room was ridiculously spacious, especially after spending 3 days in tokyo (although they bumped me up to a double room, so I don't know how big the single rooms are). Also, even though there is no wifi, there was an ethernet cable in the room and the internet was free. The only downside of the hotel is the location, since it is quite far from down town (count 30 to 45 minutes of walk every morning and evening). I also didn't get to try the breakfast. Except from that I the hotel was really excellent.

I stayed here with some students from Australia, I found it a great hotel. Such a good location, and staff so patient and helpful with my many queries. There are some English speaking reception staff as well. Fresh, varied items for breakfast. The twin/double rooms are more spacious and comfortably appointed than other business hotels such asToyoko Inn.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2012

This hotel is barely a minute walk away from Keikyu Train's 京浜急行電鉄 Koganecho Station 黄金町 (KK40), which is 3 stops away (150 yen) from Yokohama station where you can change to a bunch of other train lines. Just cross the bridge once you exit the station and you'll see the hotel building. There are some convenient stores, a supermarket, some shops and restaurants within walking distance.

There are some minor scratches on the wall / in the bathroom if you take a closer look, but the decor is quite modern and nice. The single room is fairly small but slightly bigger than another hotel I stayed at in Tokyo within the same price range. Wired internet is free and fast, but there's no wifi (not even in the lobby). Maps are available in the lobby and the staff are fairly helpful.

I booked through a booking site but found out later that if you book directly on the hotel site (in Japanese), it's 1000 yen cheaper!

Room Tip: if you book directly on the hotel site (in Japanese), it's cheaper!

We stayed there to watch the fifa club world cup. It's very clean, staff is very kind, good location, just a few minutes from downtown yokohama. It has everything you need for an amazing value. Great breakfest too! Couldn't be a better choice.
