Hotel Sunroute Sopra Kobe

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is in a quiet residential area. It is a 10-12 minute slightly downhill walk from the Sannomiya Station or 5 -7 minute walk from the nearest Port Liner monorail station. After checking in at the front desk which is situated at the far end of the lobby, we took one of 2 elevators to our floor. No keycard security system in the elevators. We booked a superior/deluxe room that was quite spacious containing two double size beds, a large closet, a loveseat, small table and desk. The decor inside the room was reminiscent of the late 1990s - dark navy blue carpeting, wallpaper with a rose design, ivory colored bathroom fixtures. Our corner room was on a high floor facing a soccer ball field with views of the Port Liner tracks. There are vending machine rooms on several floors each of which contain an ice machine, microwave and all-in-one washer/dryer unit that accepts coins only. The washer worked fine, but realizing that after 3 dryer cycle attempts made barely any difference, we decided to hang dry the clothes in our closet and throughout the room. Our 3 night stay coincided with the Kobe Festival so the price was higher than usual ($125, excluding breakfast). Noticing that the nearest PortLiner Station did not have an escalator or elevator, we asked the Front Desk to call a taxi for us. The receptionist was very kind and chose a company with an extremely courteous driver to take us to the cruise ship terminal. There is a new Lawson's a short block away. A 711 store was two short blocks away. The room we booked was quiet, spacious and the housekeeping staff was very friendly.

Very old and outdated but reasonably clean. Good location and view. Amenities provided. Bed on the small side. Found a pubic hair on the toilet seat. Also, the hotel wants guests to finish up the roll of toilet paper in order to prevent wasting resources??? Interesting.

One of the chain hotels, this is located near Sannomiya station. If you cut across Isogami Park, it's about a 10 minute walk to the station. I stayed in a semi-double non-smoking room with my husband. The room is tight, only because they added a small armchair and side table (there's already a desk and chair near the bed, as well as a stand that holds the TV and minifridge). The amenities are standard. The hot water in the bathroom is reliable and consistent. Unfortunately, most of the labels in the room are in Japanese, so English speakers/readers will be a little challenged when trying to work the air cleaner or toilet options, for instance. I only interacted with the staff twice - once during check-in and again during check-out. I paid less than $300 USD for 3 nights/4 days (breakfast not included). It's a fair price for the short time we stayed in Kobe.

The room was pretty small but that's par for course in Japan. Shower had good pressure and was nice and hot. They had very nice shampoo and conditioner for us to use as well. Bed was no better or no worse then any other. The staff were all very friendly. I'd definitely stay here again

Don't know why we saw some fairly negative reviews before arriving. We stayed on May 28, 2017. Super location. Less than 10 minute walk from main subway and bus station as well as airport bus. Nice clean, fairly modern hotel, very comfortable even if it is not the Ritz but at this price it is a super value! Very courteous and helpful staff. Great place to stay!!

Nice hotel, clean and have a plasma cluster air purifier in every room ...... The breakfast also ok, with japanese and western style ........ Even a little bit far from train station by walk, but ok ........ near Lawson store ........

This hotel is located very close to a lot of attractions particularly Sannomiya and Sannomiya station. This makes it extremely easy to access all the major attractions by train. Also, restaurants and shops were nearby so you can grab a bite at any time and also go shopping as you like. The hotel staff are also very nice and will be happy to answer any questions. It seems most of them can converse in English just fine so do not worry about this. As for the rooms itself, it is definitely small as are most Japanese hotel rooms. However, it has everything you need and is clean so I expect no problems.

This hotel is below average. It is not a great location and you have to walk a bit to get to restaurants etc. Not so bad though. The rooms were small and had an "old" feeling - not in a good way. The hotel was clean though and reception etc. was good.

This hotel is located very closeto the centre of Kobe, a short walk from the main train station and a portliner station. There are lots of restaurants and shops around it. Our room was small but totally fine. It was equipped with a small fridge, a TV with one English-language channel, and a half size bathtub. The public areas of the hotel are also nice. Should your travels bring you to Kobe, this hotel is a good budget choice.

Made a reservation for a room with two beds, but once on arrivalhad to pay for the second person. Chose for the breakfastbuffet...not worth the extra additional cost... Hotel is outdated. Staff are unfriendly.
