Star Hotel Yokohama

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 August 2014

The Hotel was a fine hotel, it gave a wireless router, which was nice. The rooms were clean- the bathroom needs to be renovated. It is about a ten min walk to the international port for a cruise. The port across the window is not the international one but we walked to the international one without a problem. For a one night stay before the cruise this hotel is just fine.

I'm giving the Star Hotel an "Excellent" rating because it's such good value. The hotel is spotlessly clean, all of the staff are wonderfully welcoming and friendly, and Star Hotel is at an excellent location. Right across the street from the hotel is the beautiful harbor-front Yamashita Park, and the historic museum ship Hikawa Maru.
My single room was on the small side, but that was to be expected. It was perfectly comfortable for one person.

There is a restaurant right off the lobby called Eggs n' Things, but I found it too pricey. A few blocks away, toward the cruise ship pier, is a very good diner called "Jonathans" where you can get a good meal, especially a Western-style breakfast for nearly half the cost of Eggs n' Things. On the same block as the hotel is a McDonald's and a well-stocked convenience store called "Lawsons". There is a rooftop bar/restaurant with a great view of the park and harbor right across the street.

Also very convenient to Star Hotel is Yokohama's China Town, and the subway (Motomachi-Chukagai station of the Minatomirai Line) is a short walk from the hotel with a quick direct connection to Yokohama Station. Down the block is the landmark Yokohama Marine Tower.

The hotel offers free WiFi through a device that the front desk will provide, that you connect to the desk in your room. My single, trivial disappointment is that the TV does not have CNN, BBC, or HBO. But who cares, really? Go out for a stroll along the lovely harbor instead of watching the news or some years-old movie on HBO.

Room Tip: Many rooms overlook the park and the harbor, but I'm sure they'd be more expensive.

We have only just recently returned from our holiday in Japan. We stayed 12 nights in the Star Hotel Yokohama and used it as our base for day trips to Tokyo and beyond. Firstly, the staff were lovely and most spoke good English. The room we booked was a triple room which we were expecting to be quite small and cramped as we have had this experience before while in Japan, but the room was really a pleasant surprise. There was plenty of room for our three suitcases, plenty of cupboard space, plenty or room either side of the beds and still room for you to sit and work at the desk on your computer. There was a large TV on one end of the desk and tea making facilities. After the first night stay a humidifier was placed in the room which we were thankful for each night. The housekeeper would always turn the heater on so the room was warm when we returned each night even though we would turn if off each morning when we left. The ensuite bathroom had a lovely deep bath which my husband and daughter enjoyed each night after our day trips in the freezing cold. The location was just perfect for us......close to the railway station Motomachi Chukugai, but remember to take exit 4 as this is the closest to the hotel.........close to Chinatown (only two blocks)....close to Motomachi Shopping Street.........(short walking distance) and right opposite Yamashita Park for walking and sightseeing. We walked quite a few times along the park to get to our destinations........redbrick warehouse........World Porter.......Cosmo World and other sightseeing places of interest. The staff at the hotel were always pleasant when we left in the mornings with their greetings and when we arrived back at the end of the day they were ready with our room key without having to ask for it. We felt very welcomed. There was a vending machine on our floor (7th floor) near the elevator if you needed something in the line of drinks (no alcohol) we did not see an ice machine which we would have liked when we had a drink in our room later. There is the Bar on 2nd floor which we went to on our last night in the hotel. This was a nice experience....the bartender was excellent to watch very professional and very entertaining, so worth a visit although a bit pricey. All in all our stay at this hotel was wonderful and I would definitely return when next staying in Yokohama. One thing I wish the hotel had was Wi-Fi as all three of us were wanting to use laptops but there was only LAN so only one person could use at a time.

Room Tip: See if you can get a room overlooking the park.

Great Location. Easy place to jog from. You can jog along the water and look out on the bay and bridge. Rooms are tiny, but they all are in Japan. Easy to access everything from here. Shopping, restaurants, and trains.

Room Tip: some rooms face a brick wall.

The hotel is in a very central location. Ask for a view of Yokohama Bay which is beautiful. The room smelled of smoke, as I have found many in Japan do. I a, so surprised that you can smoke in so many places in Japan. The breakfast was much more than I could eat and the bed was comfortable. The room is small but adequate and the individual coffee maker is a nice touch with good coffee. The is no safe deposit box so I had to leave my computer at the front desk when I went out but not a bad hotel for the price. It's close to the Motomachi-Chykagai Station.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the bay.

I stayed here for a number of nights last September.

Star Hotel is in a good location next to Yamashita Park and is a short walk from China Town and Motomachi. The train connections are also very good. Connected to the hotel is Eggs n' Things, a Hawaiian restaurant with huge pancakes and cream, waffles, and other breakfast type items. There is always a long line but it's worth the wait!

The rooms are quite small with a very small bathroom, but they are always very clean and simply decorated. TVs are small, with Japanese only programs. There is a small mini fridge too.

The staff are always friendly and speak a little English.

The only thing is that the hotel looks a little outdated. But overall very comfortable!
