If you’re looking for a hotel in a good location (near nightlife, food, and subway) with reasonable price, clean room, comfy bed and pillows, good facilities, this is the place. The room is not small at all comparing to other city hotels in Japan. Overall a great one night stay.

Hotel told me that the temperature in all rooms is the same. There is no aircon. It is November and ca 12 celsius outside. My Garmin watch tells me it is 28 celsius in my room. All rooms have sealed windows, you cannot open them. Good night! Location is good. One metro stop from main station.

The hotel is conveniently located 1 minute away from a subway station and there are shops and restaurants nearby. The Room did look smaller than the photos on the website but it was clean and the beds were really comfortable. Service was also excellent! My friend and I arrived on a Sunday and we really wanted to try eating Kobe Beef at the hotel's restaurant. However, it was fully-booked :( The hotel concierge was kind enough to help us call around and book 2 seats at a nearby Kobe Restaurant for us. Overall, I would highly recommend staying the b kobe for its value and service, and I would definitely come back here again.

Good visit. Great commode-opens and flushes quietly and automatically. Good location close to station. Room not large. Check in and out easy. Price ok. Visit impaired by typhoon . Clean, comfortable though bet pretty firm.

Offers everything you need from a budget hotel. Great location, friendly English speaking reception and clean clean clean, but then I expect nothing less of Japan. As we were visiting in the humid season then the laundry service was a bonus; cheap (in my opinion) and 24 hour turnaround ensuring we always had clean fresh laundered clothing every day. Breakfast was Japanese style but did the job of setting us up for the day. Location was central and handy for shops, restaurants and railway.

We stayed a couple of nights in Kobe mainly to eat Kobe beef. The hotel location was excellent with streets full of steak restaurants nearby. Only a 10 minute walk to Sannoymiya station plus a 24 hour Don Quixote right next door for all your shopping needs. Reasonably priced and good for a short stay.

Pretty standard business hotel in Kobe. The room was fairly small but we were only there for one night and didn't spend much time in the room so it was ok. It was clean as expected and the staff were friendly and spoke enough English for us. The hotel is easily accessible from Sannomiya station and Shin Kobe station. A bonus was you get a 5% discount at the Kobe Plaisir restaurant downstairs. The breakfast was at the Italian restaurant downstairs and it was mostly western food but some unusual dishes for breakfast (pasta and meatballs for example). The hotel is right in among what you could consider the downtown district of Kobe so it's a fairly busy area in the evening with lots of lights and people on the street. We didn't notice any noise but there is certainly the potential if your in a lower floor and on the street side.

It was clean and good communication from this location. It is not too far from train station. Little out of city, quite and normal , not too expensive. I like where is no rush for go to work and when you come back . But all facilities are there, bus ,train ,taxi all are available when you want as normally each city has. I like it.

Good price, really in the centre (main train station 3 min walk). Nice and clean with friendly staff. We did not eat breakfast there since it was Italian food and we wanted to test Japanese cuisine. Will stay there if I am in Kobe again.

Room smelled stale and of smoke, can't open the windows so had to put up with air freshener which didn't really work. Bed was comfortable. Bathroom was very small and we were unable to move without banging the sides or cealing. Location was excellent.
