Hotel is clean and good service from the staff. They have a great buffet breakfast and have won the award for best buffet breakfast for 5 years. Walking distance to shops and restaurant, also the train.

部屋はピエナスイートに泊まりました。 部屋は広く清潔で良かったです、どこもとてもきれいでした。 朝食がおいしかった。デザートが種類多く大変よかったです。 また是非泊まりたいです。 I stayed in the Piena Suite for 1 night. The room is spacious and clean, everything in the room is awesome. The breakfast buffet is delicious and I was surprised by the variety of tasty desserts. I would definitely want to stay here again in the near future.

Piena is north of the Sanomiya Station which is also close to Ijinkan a popular tourist place in Kobe. The rooms are small but clean. There is a nice restaurant in second floor, but we never tried, because it was booked solid for dinner (they are open to all people).

We stayed in Hotel Piena Kobe for a night. The hotel had a own car park and we could park our car in its own premise. The room size if not that big with everything is clean and tidy. The breakfast here is famous with a lot of variety. We enjoyed staying Hotel Piena Kobe and recommend the people who look for the accommodation in Kobe.

I stayed here for one night this past weekend. The room was not so large, but was adequate for two and had quite a large bathroom. The hotel seems to be famous online for its breakfast, which consisted of a large variety of Japanese and French dishes, as well as a huge bread and jam selection and an impressive array of desserts, all of which was delicious. The staff was very friendly and spoke English well. The hotel was conveniently located a less than 10 minute walk from Sannomiya Station in Kobe. It is also within walking distance of Shin-Kobe Station and various Kobe attractions such as the Kitano area, Nunobiki Herb Garden and Nunobiki Falls. Being so close to the station means there is a large variety of shops and restaurants nearby as well. All in all, I think this hotel is a good place to stay if you want to be near the action and enjoy some delicious food.

I've stayed in this hotel twice, and I have to say it's one of my favorites. The rooms that I've gotten have been quite large for Japan, with room for couches or at least a little sitting area. It's a cute place, very fancy-feeling, and the staff have always been incredibly helpful. The breakfast buffet is mentioned for obvious reasons - it's delicious. One of my friends who stayed with me called this "an ideal place to recover after a night clubbing in Sannomiya" - it's quite close to Sannomiya station and really does have a lovely atmosphere.

I don't agree with this 4.5 star rating. Don't be fooled by the fancy looking lobby and restaurant. The guest room is small (to be expected in japan) and very old. After returning from dinner our room was extremely hot and could not be cooled by the air conditioning unit. We called the front desk to notify them and someone came up to the room to open the window for us. Cracking a window that looks out directly into another building creates no breeze, therefore room remained too hot the duration of the night. It was a very uncomfortable stay and I would not recommend coming here during warm weather in the autumn when apparently you cannot cool your room. We did really enjoy the breakfast buffet but it was rather expensive at approximately $22.

Most reviewers mention the breakfast with good reason - it is a huge buffet with a cakes table capable of causing immediate diabetic comas. The rooms are also a decent size for Japan, and we were very comfortable in a King bed. We walked to the main attractions, but the hotel is conveniently located for public transport.

A lovely hotel. Larger rooms than many. French blue and white decor. Helpful friendly staff. Our a/c did not work. Staff came to room with dyson fan and air purifier. Thankfully cool outside and opening the window worked, so I did not complain further about the a/c. Immaculate clean. All amenities. I highly recommend and would stay again. --- coffee pattiserie in building. --- we did not eat breakfast here. There is an excellent coffee shop in direction of train that was inexpensive and struck perfect note between elegance and diner. Also had great coffee. We went there every day. -- Nishimura's Coffee Shop. Between this hotel and our breakfast place we were extremely happy.

Walked downhill from Shin-Kobe station (make sure you print off their directions) and arrived at this sweets smelling polished hotel. Another 20 min walk to European houses and the Trick Art Museum and to the Sannomiya train station in the other direction where we took a bus to Arima Onsen. The buffet was fantastic because besides the sweets there are also healthy options including fruit, veggies, eggs, & green smoothies. The wait can be long unless you get there when they open, so it's best if you have some flexibility in the morning. Found a few restaurants close by and the post office was a block away which has an ATM (great for foreign cards). Staff was always smiling & my friend got a reasonably priced massage in our hotel room. The room was impeccable and the refrigerator was useful.
