The Route Inn is your middle of the road Japanese business hotel. I personally think their price is a little high and prefer Toyoko inn, which is usually half the cost plus free breakfast. However, if you're in fix, this place will do. The rooms are on the small side, but they have a large bed, clean bathroom and huge tv. Don't expect much space for luggage. It was also surprisingly quiet. We stayed right near the elevator and it was quiet as could be. They also have a sento, public bath, which I recommend you use since that's what you're paying for.

WiFi was good. Most everything was as you would expect.

Apart from the fact that check in time is 3PM, and they won't check you in, and will keep you waiting in the lobby until 3 PM sharp (not even 2:59!), it's quite a good hotel. Even if you have to overcome a 12-hour jetlag!
Rooms are super clean, though very tiny (it's Japan), quiet, with everything you need, and their free breakfast is a treat (though you need to decide the night before with half-hour slot you want to take your breakfast in (tiny restaurant!).

Even if the room was small, there was everything, you need - all in the bath, like shampoo, conditionaire, soap, toothbrush and toothpase, comb, slippers. Suprising was the japanese home dress - some people did wear it in the morning at the breakfast. You have a hair dryer and water cooker, incl. green tea and a fridge. I need not to mention the TV, where I did find for free just japanese programms, but they are very funny, even if you do not understand the language. You can buy some card with additionall programs. The breakfast is japanese - miso soup, noodles, fried things. You can create also some european style breakfast - they had buns and jam, sometimes joghurt. People in the reception speak basic English, but it was sufficient. I did borrow the adapater for the electricity socket in the reception as in my country we have another type. The bed is hard, as normal in Japan. As I know, you must look for hotels, which have softer beds. But I did not have problems to adapt on it. The only thing, which was not so good, was the orientation of the room - I did look directly in the wall of the next house. As I did spend minimum time in the room - just for sleeping, so I did not ask for changing the room. A very interesting experience was the bath in the top floor of the hotel. It is very hot, and makes you relaxed and sleepy. It is good to study before, how japanese take the bath. But if you have tatoos, forget it, because tatoos must be covered in many places in Japan (beach, some restaurants) and you are not allowed to take the bath with tatoos.
From the hotel you can walk to the attractions of Yokohama harbour or to the train station.

Room Tip: From room 315 you see just the wall of the opposite house, it is a dark room.

I booked a single bed/single bath , non smoking room in this hotel. Room was nice, though a little small. AC, fridge, TV, hair dryer and Cupboard was provided. Location near to Basamichi station is advantage for fast transportation. Staff is very friendly, though you might face a little difficulty in English communication. Breakfast option is good for Japanese people, but few options of English breakfast.

Room Tip: Location near to station and many conference ceenteres

Located closed to the famous MinatoMirai, Yokohama, this hotel is cheap, compare to others in the area. For those who planned to spend more time wandering the city rather that stay at the hotel, this is the nice budget hotel you can get. You'll get your own private room just like other hotel. Plus, if you want to enjoy Japanese traditional bathroom, they also provide it.
However, for you that not familiar with Japanese pillow, their pillow is so stiff. I don't know if they provide softer one or not. However, for traveler who wants to find affordable hotel in Japan, this can be an option.
