Where to stay in Yokohama

The best area to stay in Yokohama is definitely Minato Mirai, an area where when the sun goes down and the lights turn on, there is an incredible magic atmosphere. Alternatively, the area of Yamashita, in front of the homonymous park, is not bad. Many hotels are located instead in the district of Kannai, an unattractive area for tourists, but quite close to the most popular ones, in particular to Chinatown.

Recommended Hotels

Sakuragicho Washington Hotel
The Washington hotels are a popular chain of Japanese business hotel, there is very little to say more, this is hotel with a good standard of quality.
This particular hotel is situated in a great location, in a tall building in front of Sakuragicho station and in front of the skyscrapers of Minato Mirai. If you want to sleep in Yokohama in a room with a view of the bay, this hotel is the cheapest one that also offers this type of rooms.

Hotel JAL City Kannai
Business hotel chain of medium-high level. This hotel is located in a convenient location near Chinatown and Yamashita Park, a fairly lively area in the evening.
Standard prices start from 8,000 yen for a single, a little expensive, but sometimes you can find cheap discounted fares on expedia.


Navios Hotel
This hotel is located in the center of Minato Mirai, on the artificial island of Shinko. The prices are not very low, the hotel is good, but what you pay is above all the position, because in this area you can hardly find rooms for less than 9,000 yen per night. Obviously it depends on the period, if there are or not special offers on booking.com. The incredible view of the ferris wheel and the surrounding skyscrapers will make you soon forget the money spent.

Star Hotel Yokohama
This mid-level business hotel is located right in front of Yamashita Park and next to the Yokohama Marine Tower. Prices are pretty good, and all rooms have balconies. Those with view over the park, with Minato Mirai in the distance, cost a little more but it's worth it.



Wing International Hotel Yokohama Kannai
One of the chains of business hotels with the best value for money. The location of this hotel (south of Kannai station), however, is a little too isolated from the most popular areas of the city, take it into consideration only if at the time of booking there is some really hot deal, otherwise choose one in a more central position.


Comfort Hotel Yokohama Kannai
Business hotel of a good standard, rooms are slightly larger than the ones of others a bit cheaper chains of business hotels, and prices often include breakfast too. It is located vaguely halfway between Minato Mirai and Chinatown, the two most exciting areas of the city. Depending on the period, you could do a deal with some rooms on offer on expedia, check it out.


Hotels with panoramic views over the Yokohama bay

The Yokohama Bay is in my opinion one of the most spectacular "modern" views of the whole country, and I think that passing a night "under the lights of Minato Mirai" is a very exciting experience.

InterContinental Yokohama Grand
This hotel is located in the heart of Minato Mirai, is in fact one of the skyscrapers which form the skyline, the sail-shaped one.
This is an upscale hotel with obviously quite high prices, but not unaffordable as you might imagine, depending on the period I have seen rooms on offer for around 15,000 yen.


Yokohama Royal Park Hotel
One of the best hotels in the city, perhaps comparable to a western 5-star hotel, it is situated over the last 30 floors of the Landmark Tower.
The prices, though very high, are not just for millionaires, there are no single rooms but you might find double rooms on offer from "only" 20,000 yen per night, maybe you could stay there a night, so then you'll be able to say that you have slept in Japan's tallest building!

Sakuragicho Washington Hotel
The Washington hotels are a popular chain of Japanese business hotel, there is very little to say more, this is hotel with a good standard of quality.
This particular hotel is situated in a great location, in a tall building in front of Sakuragicho station and in front of the skyscrapers of Minato Mirai. If you want to sleep in Yokohama in a room with a view of the bay, this hotel is the cheapest one that also offers this type of rooms.

Very cheap accommodations

The cheapest of all accomodations are obviously the internet cafè (1500-2000 YEN per night), which can be found near Yokohama station, and probably also in other districts.

In Kotobukicho area you can find instead some hostels that offer also private rooms with very cheap rates. To be fair, I have to say that it is one of the poorest areas of Yokohama, though, from the point of view of safety, there should be no problem. A few minutes walk from this area there is the tourist area of ​​Chinatown and Ishikawacho station.

Hostel Village Hayashi-Kaikan
A decent place where to stay in Kotobukicho. The overall quality is obviously low, but prices are also very low, the rooms are tiny and the structure looks a bit "old". There is no lift.


¥ 2800 per night. Book now

Porto Hostel
Hostel for backpackers, in addition to single private rooms also offers beds in dorm rooms from 2300 yen per night. Western breakfast included.


¥ 3000 per night.

A Silk Tree Hostel
Perhaps the best hostel in the area of Kotobukicho, 7-minute walk from Chinatown.
TV, refrigerator, air conditioning, desk and LAN internet in every room (all with tatami mats and futons, no Western-style rooms).
Clean guesthouse that provides many useful services such as bike hire for 300 yen a day. The only flaw are the pay showers (200 yen for 7 minutes).
From ¥ 3000 per night.
