Where to stay in Yokohama

last update: January 06, 2023
Yokohama is a city full of hotels and hostels for all budgets. Prices are generally cheaper than in Tokyo. It is advisable to sleep in Yokohama at least one day to be able to visit the city calmly. A night in one of Minato Mirai's panoramic view hotels is one of the most romantic modern experiences one can have in the Tokyo region.

The best area to stay in Yokohama

Hotel with a panoramic view of Yokohama Bay

The night view of Yokohama Bay, and especially the view from some large hotels in Minato Mirai, is one of the most romantic modern panoramic views in the Tokyo region and perhaps in all of Japan. If you are traveling as a couple and decide to spend at least one night in Yokohama, we sincerely recommend that you spare no expense and treat yourself to the pleasure of a night in one of our two favorite hotels, the Royal Park Yokohama or the Yokohama Bay Hotel Tokyu. Alternatively, there are also less expensive solutions for a less luxurious but equally romantic night. All the details to follow.

The best hotels with a panoramic view

royal park hotel yokohama If you can afford to spend a little more, this hotel is the best of the many high-end hotels overlooking Minato Mirai, and also one of the least expensive. It is located between 49th and 70th of the Landmark Tower, therefore very close to both Sakuragicho station and Minato Mirai subway station. The rooms are very large and elegant, and all have a panoramic view of the city or the bay. For an even more unforgettable experience, we recommend the corner rooms (photo to the side) which also have a small window next to the bathtub. Inside the hotel there is also a fitness center and several restaurants. Sirius restaurant on the 70th floor offers both buffet breakfast (3630¥) and lunch buffet (4500¥). Price range: 12,000-35,000¥.
yokohama bay hotel tokyu Another world-class hotel, located within the Queen's Square Yokohama complex, which includes a concert hall, shops and extensive gardens, and opposite the Cosmo World amusement park. Minato Mirai Metro Station is located below the building, while Sakuragicho Station is a 10-minute walk away. The rooms are huge (starting from 40 m2) and all have a balcony with a view. Highly recommended in the summer months, to enjoy the view or an aperitif in the open area. Inside the structure there are also numerous restaurants and a spa which includes a swimming pool on the 4th floor (entrance to the swimming pool 3300¥). Price range: 20,000-35,000¥.

Low cost hotels with panoramic view

sakuragicho washington hotel This hotel is in a fantastic location, in a thirty-story skyscraper opposite the east exit of Sakuragicho station, a five-minute walk from the man-made Shinko Island with all its attractions. There are numerous restaurants on the first floors of the building, while the reception is on the 4th floor. The hotel offers both very cheap single rooms (around 5000¥ per night) and rooms on high floors, overlooking the city or the bay, at the lowest price in the area (7000-8000¥ per night for a double room). Excellent breakfast but expensive (1700¥ per person). For the rest, the Washington hotels are a medium-range Japanese chain that guarantees extreme cleanliness and small rooms but equipped with everything you need. Price range: 5,000-8,000¥.
apa hotel and resort yokohama bay tower A skyscraper in the heart of Minato Mirai from the popular APA business hotel chain. Like all hotels in this chain, the rooms are very small, but modern and well equipped. The structure also offers large public baths available to guests, and, in summer, an outdoor panoramic swimming pool. However, be careful when booking if you want a panoramic view, because the rooms that cost less do not have any views. Price range: rooms without view 6,000-7,000¥, rooms with view 8,000-12,000¥.

Other hotels with panoramic views

  • InterContinental Yokohama Grand, in a sail-shaped skyscraper inside the Pacifico Yokohama Exhibition Center, located at the western tip of Minato Mirai.
  • InterContinental Yokohama Pier 8, within the Yokohama Hammerhead complex, a low-rise building but located on a pier, with close-up views of the sea.
  • Navios Yokohama, a mid-level business hotel located in the arch building on the man-made island of Shinko.
  • Oakwood Suites Yokohama, an aparthotel whose rooms have a kitchenette, located between the 46th and 51st floors of a skyscraper near Bashamichi Station.

Both the rooms and the bathrooms inside the rooms are bigger than the usual Japanese business hotels where you can barely open a suitcase on the floor. Excellent breakfast buffet. One of the best hotels in terms of quality-location-price ratio, recommended for those who are not interested in a panoramic view. Price range: single rooms 7,000-8,000¥, double rooms 8,500-9,000¥.

    Particularly cheap accommodations

    Hostels with shared rooms

    chillulu hostel yokohama A small hostel with 10 beds in all, in a single room which therefore hosts men and women all together. It is located in the heart of Yokohama's Chinese district, just outside the hotel you will be spoiled for choice of shops and restaurants and Motomachi Chukagai station is just a few hundred meters away. Welcoming and familiar environment, with a common area and a café at the entrance. It is the hostel that we most recommend in the city, with very low prices, it is not easy to find accommodation in Yokohama that costs less than this hostel. Price range: bunk bed in dormitory 2,600-3,000¥.
    guesthouse futareno yokohama A guesthouse about 500 meters from Sakuragicho station, therefore not far from Minato Mirai. The guesthouse is family-run, in a building that is nothing more than an old restored house in a residential area. The owner is a lovely person and speaks excellent English. The guesthouse offers a large room with six beds for women only, and two private rooms with shared bathroom, which can accommodate up to two and up to three people respectively. Price range: bunk bed in female dormitory 3,000¥, private room 3,600¥.

    Capsule hotels

    resort capsule sakuragicho A capsule hotel very close to Sakuragicho station, just a few minutes walk from the fantastic Minato Mirai district. It is one of the few places where you can sleep on the cheap in Minato Mirai, although the price is still relatively high considering that it is a capsule hotel. The hotel offers both standard capsules and superior capsules which also have a small corridor with a desk next to the capsule. The property offers large public baths for all guests and a very large and convenient breakfast buffet (it costs only 1000¥!). Price range: standard capsule 4,000-4,500¥, superior capsule 5,500-5,500¥.
    sky spa yokohama A capsule hotel on the 14th floor of the Yokohama Sky Building, a skyscraper near Yokohama Station which also houses department stores, a Pokemon Center, and several panoramic restaurants on the top floors. Yokohama Sky Spa, as the name suggests, is much more than a capsule hotel. It is a wellness center with large thermal baths and sauna with panoramic views, massage service, and other relaxation services available to all guests. Price range: capsule 4,000-5,000¥.

    Private rooms in Kotobukicho

    In the Kotobukicho area there are instead some hostels that also offer private rooms with particularly low prices compared to the norm. The reason is that this area is considered to be one of the poorest and most degraded in Yokohama, even if from a safety point of view there are no problems and the standards in Japan are so high that even the degraded areas seem normal after all for a foreigner. A few minutes' walk from this area is the tourist area of Chinatown and Ishikawacho Station. In this area you can sleep for 2500-3000¥ for tiny private single rooms. If you are looking for single rooms at the lowest prices in town, you can take a look at:

    Guided tours, activities and other things to do

    If you are planning a trip to Japan and you want to do something more than just visiting famous places and monuments, we suggest you to use Rakuten Travel Experiences.

    How to use Rakuten Travel Experiences

    Rakuten Travel is a very useful website to enrich your travel experience, especially if you are going solo or it's your first time in Japan.
    Because of the language barrier (and more), in Japan it is very difficult to interact with the locals and to get off the tourist track.
    Thanks to Rakuten Travel you can find a lot of interesting and sometimes unique guided tours and activities all over Japan (and not only in Japan), that you would otherwise never be able to enjoy.
    But there's more: on Rakuten Travel you can also buy tickets for several famous attractions, events, transportation and other useful services for tourists. Last but not least, you can reserve a table in hundreds of restaurants.
