Hotel Vista Kamata Tokyo3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The hotel is good overall, the front desk staff are very cheery, polite, helpful and accommodating. The room was about what we expected, we'd already stayed in 3 other hotels in Japan, and this one was probably more like a 'western' hotel than a couple of the others we stayed in. What it needs is a bit of an upgrade though... the centre console in the room was supposed to control the air conditioning or at least the fan, but it didn't. The radio didn't work. But the light switches did, so that was a plus. The weather outside was cool, but in the room it got up to 27C. We informed the desk staff, unfortunately we cannot control the room temperature. The beds were firmer than anything we'd slept on previously, the pillow was two-sided, one side with foam and the other with peas. Not the end of the world, just took some getting used to. In terms of location, it is VERY close to the Kamata station, so access is quick and easy. If you like curry, there's a good Nepalese restaurant around the corner, there's also a McDonalds, and a host of other typical small Japanese noodle houses. Right across the street is the bowling alley. Our room faced the main road and highway and rail lines, so sleeping with the window open to help cool down the room meant a bit of noise, but at home in Toronto we sleep beside the highway so it's not too different. It was relatively inexpensive, and the room was stocked with the usual shampoo, body soap, toothbrush, paste, razors and shaving gel. The front staff were very helpful and took watch of our luggage prior to check-in at 3PM and after we checked out at 10AM a few days later.
The location of the hotel is good - near Kamata station and is a walking distance. But the hotel is very budget and the toilet is very small and stink too. Already reported to the house keeping but still very smelly. Carpets are not vacuum and when we need to push the bed (because we have a 5 years old sleeping with us), we see lots of dusts and rubbish underneath. Will not return and will not recommended to others too.
They don't have a safe for your valuables and after our room was cleaned my brother's PASMO (travel card with about $20 left on the bedside table) went missing. We informed reception staff when we were heading out and they insisted on going up to our room to check but because we were leaving we said they should do so when we come back. When we came back it was a different staff member, but he was briefed and accompanied us up to our room. He searched our room (on hands and knees) but the missing PASMO did not turn up. They did not have any service recovery and when we asked if it was possible to check out a bit later (an hour) they said it was chargeable. When we checked out, there was also no mention or update of the missing item. Also, you get a bottle of water per person per day, which you collect from reception, and when i went to collect mine they insisted i had collected it when i had not. Their service in general is quite lacking, and their rooms and amenities are old but relatively clean and the provided toiletries aren't bad. Just make sure you keep everything of yours locked in your suitcase whenever you leave the room and hope you're one of the lucky ones who encounters pleasant staff.
I stayed here because of my late plan that changed from Narita to Haneda. I arrived at 11.00 pm so no choice that I must spend my night around the airport after 13 hours flight. Honestly I found this hotel accidentally because there were only 3 hotels in Agoda web reservation for that night. I chose this according to the price. The location is near Haneda airport. I just showed my reservation in my Iphone to the taxi driver then after he read Japanese language on it for a while he understood the location. The staffs hotel were quite good. They already prepared my reservation when I arrived at the hotel exhaustedly. So I and family could rest directly. Yes their English was limited but still can communicated with me. The room was very small but clean and had a coffee maker. The breakfast was very simple but I understood because this os the budget hotel. Very simple but quite complete. There were rice and also bread. The best point of this hotel is near the train station. Just walk 5-7 minutes. So it was very easy for me and family to continue my trip to Tokyo after the breakfast. The staffs hotel were nice to inform about it. They also help me when 15 minutes after I checkout I just realized that I left my jacket at the room. They helped me when I came back to take my jacket. Nice :)
This hotel was wonderful! We were at a triple occupancy and we stayed at 3 hotels on our trip to Japan, this was the most accommodating and had the biggest room to hold 3 beds. Don't get me wrong, it was still a little tight but manageable. The staff was extremely friendly! They will help you out with anything and everything that they can and yes, some of the night staff didn't speak English as well, but they always have 2 people there and it seems that if one cannot speak English that well, then the other person can so we never had any issues. It's also close to Kamata station and if you get the JR Rail pass, then this hotel is at the ideal location! If you exit Kamata station from the South exit, and just walk straight towards the McDonald's that is outside the station. You will want to keep walking past the McDonald's and next to that is a huge store called "Yuzawaya." You will pass then you will make a right. After that, you are going to walk one small block and on the next street, make a left and see the hotel on your left side. They will give you bottles of water and help you out with anything that you could need. I highly recommend that hotel.
The pricing for my room was incredible value, I loved the view from the high up room, the room that I got was large and the bed was comfortable. It was very clean. It had outlets for charging my stuff, a great mini fridge that actually kept my food and drinks cold. Flat panel TV with Japanese TV shows, Sumo and anime I stayed for a long time and it was great! I personally really liked the vending machines directly across from the main entrance. There is also a entertainment arcade and pachi-slot machines right outside, great for the young at heart. I loved that the front staff gave me a bottle of good quality water each day and they were so respectful, nice, and understanding, and patient! It was so nice being able to walk around in a quiet commercial and residential area with a little bit of everything. McDonalds is a few minutes away - good for an American like me :) there is some awesome gambling at the pachinko parlor too! I found a post office with ATM, convenience stores, and a discount store near the train station and it only takes 4 minutes walk to the train station. I tried the breakfast buffet they had and it was pretty decent with a lot of variety. The gentleman in front held my luggage after checking out on my last day, sectioned off. The cleaning workers were very nice, they took my trash and offered clean sheets. I had such a good experience all over Tokyo just riding the train everywhere from this awesome hotel. Too much to write!
Stayed here with my family for 4 nights. The room that we got was good for 3 pax with 2 beds (1 double & 1 single). The room still had ample space for our luggage and area to move around, compared to the room that we had during our Osaka vacation. The location was superb since it is just a 10 minute walk to the the Kamata station. By the way, don't miss out Mutsumiya Restaurant which is a few meters from the hotel. Their ramen and gyoza are to die for.
Stayed here with family in two rooms for 4 nights in May '16. Hotel was easy to find having looked at google maps prior to arrival and reading other reviews on how to get there. From the west or south exits of Kamata station it's about 5 or 6 minutes walk to the hotel. Check in was easy, friendly staff understand and speak some english making the process smooth. Due to rain we were handed small towels to dry off and bottles of water. Elevator is a tad tight so with luggage only 3 of us would fit at a time but not a big deal since you only take your luggage up/down once. Room, although dated, was still clean and had three beds as was needed. The AC unit wasn't as strong as expected but sufficient given that the weather wasn't overly warm. Beds were comfortable and had no issues sleeping at all. Bathroom was clean, no issues there aside from the low ceiling and small space but that's to be expected in Japan unless you spend a ton more on a western type hotel. Across from Vista Kamata is a bowling alley and mini arcade. Plenty of eating options within 10mins walk of the hotel. 7-11/Family Mart very close to Kamata station for basic needs. The area around Kamata station is a lot more lively and busier than I originally thought. Pachinko arcades, souvenir shops, drugstores ,100yen stores, it's all there. Moreover, there is a multi-floored building connected to the station that offers all your shopping needs. The grocery/bakery store on the lowest floor has some very tasty items, definitely worth checking out. Getting to main areas like Ginza, Shibuya, Ueno, Ikebukuro all were around 15-30mins to reach, an unexpected bonus given that Kamata on the map looks like its far away from everything. Overall enjoyed my stay. Location provides the most value for sure. PS: Kamata station train music is really catchy. The song I believe, is called "The Fall Guy" if you search it on youtube :)
Although this hotel is a small walk from the train station, it is worth it. We could not find any faults with this property. The room was larger than the Japanese average, had everything we required, the staff were great.
I went here on a school art trip. The room was shared between three of us, it was a bit of a squeeze but all part of the experience away form home. There was good wifi available throughout the hotel and the showers provided shampoo, conditioner and body wash although there was no hand soap. The breakfasts were satisfactory, a wide range of food but different to what I'm used to at home. The hotel is in an amazing area, everything is within walking distance with a huge range of restaurants and shops nearby as is the train station. One small thing to mention, whenever the shower was used the water would come underneath the bathroom door and soak the carpet outside although I'm sure it's nothing that can't be fixed. Overall I had a great trip, definitely one I'll remember for years and years to come.
