Hotel Mystays Kamata (Tokyo, Japan)

For our honeymoon trip to Tokyo, we initially wanted to book an AirBnB, but since we wanted a stress-free honeymoon, we ditched the idea and booked a hotel room.


Location and Accessibility

The hotel is a five-minute walk away from the East Exit of Kamata Station, which is along the JR Keihin-Tohoku Line. It was a good home base for us, as it is at the center of all the sights we wanted to visit.

There are a lot of places to eat around the area, and there is a Family Mart just outside the train station where we bought snacks before retiring for the day. 

There is also a nearby branch of Don Quixote (fondly called as Donki) on the south side of the Kamata Station where you can buy Japanese goodies to bring home. 

Check-in/Check-out

We arrived at the hotel around 1pm, but their check-in time is 3pm. Good thing they allowed us to check-in already, because we were so tired from travelling.

Check-in was a breeze; I just showed them the printed Agoda voucher and that was it.

Upon check-out, we just surrendered our room keys, since payment has been settled thru Agoda.

The Room

Knowing that space is expensive in Tokyo, the room that we got is about 22 sqm, which is a decent size for my husband and I. Hotel Mystays makes efficient use of the modest floor area. We still had space to walk around even though our luggage were half-opened on the floor.

Upon entering the room, there is a coat hanger and a safety deposit box.

It also has a study table which offers a view of the street outside. On one of its corners, there are integrated power outlets, a wired LAN network connection, and a USB charging port, making for a nice place to park a laptop on.

The beds are really comfortable, with medium firmness foam, and we always had a good night’s sleep. My husband especially liked the shaped memory foam pillows and wanted to get one for our home. Instead of using the study table by the window for my husband’s laptop, we used the little table on caster wheels instead, which could also be used for consuming drinks or snacks while in bed.

It is so nice to come home to a clean room at the end of the day.

The Famous Japanese Toilet

The toilet and shower area is also small but still okay. It has a bathtub which we were not able to use.

It has the famous Japanese toilet commonly called as washlet which has a water spray or bidet feature. You can also control the temperature and water pressure of the washlet. The only downside is that the toilet seat itself is not heated, which is something you may see in other hotels or even the toilets in restaurants.

They also have full-sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided in the shower area. For the other toiletries, they have a common place at the reception area where you can take what you need. We were fans of the folding hairbrushes.

The Verdict

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Mystays Kamata and if we are to come back to Tokyo, I will still pick this hotel for its value for money.
