Advice please on Tokyo / Yokohama

Hi, I've booked a hotel for three nights in Yokohama before we board a cruise. I thought it would be good because it is above a train station however, we land at Narita and the Narita Express doesn't go to the station (Shin Yokohama) and the trip is 30 minutes longer than Tokyo as well. I am now thinking we would be better off booking a hotel in Tokyo. Any recommendations?

We have been to Tokyo before but this time I am taking my mother who is 80 and cannot walk very far so any recommendations for sightseeing options for someone who is a bit mobility impaired would also be welcome.

Thanks for any contributions :)

I have not been to Yokohama so i cannot comment on it. I did catch the Narita express train and stayed at a hotel that I loved near the main Tokyo station. Once you get out of the station it is just a few hundred metres away across the road.

We stayed at the Sunroute Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku - and loved it! It all depends on how many in your group, as a lot of rooms only take 3 people - crazy!

We chose the location based on where the Airport Limousine Bus could drop us off directly to our hotel, as I knew I didn't want to be trying to locate accommodation late at night. On their website, you can select your route [eg; From: Airport - To: Shinjuku], and it gives a list of hotels they service.

We stayed at e-Hotel Shinjuku Higashi. Nice but very tiny rooms.

The hotel entrance was about 10 metres from the escalators to Shinjuku Higashi Station, which was a very easy station in that the internal distances were pretty short, but it did involve often changing lines to go sightseeing.
We got the limo bus to Shinjuku Station and then caught a taxi (very reasonable) to the hotel, as we arrived late at night.

I am limited in my walking, and I don't think I've walked so far on any holiday as I did in Tokyo. I wish I'd known about Skybus Tokyo which has several hop-on-hop-off routes. We did all our sightseeing by train and on foot, LOTS of on foot. Even though I was entranced by all the experiences, it was hard work for me.
