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.
