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.

Hotel is extremely well located right next to Ikuta Jinja and Tokyu Hands , no more than a 10 minute walk from Sannomiya station. Check in process was fine with friendly staff. My main disappointment was the lingering smell of cigarettes in my non smoking room. Breakfast is served in a restaurant on the ground floor and was very average.

Pros -Good location, few mins walk to important metro and train station -Spacious room -Very fast internet Cons - breakfast in italian restaurant is really, really bad - Windows are not the most insulated, so you can hear a little bit of street noise

good location, economic choice, will choose again if I have chance to visit kobe again. because I stayed in several hotels in this trip, actually I don't really remember the nature of this hotel, but it is worthwhile anyway.

My family chose to revisit Kobe and stay at The B Hotel. Its location is convenient, suroounded by Lawson Family Mart, Don Qihote, and Tokyu Hands. The hotel provides frre ice and 200 yen laundry. The room is clean and the rest room amenities is modern and well kept. A happy stay is judged by the cleanliness of the bed from the look, smell and touch. I have a very good night sleep and that is meant a lot for the traveller.

Nice location just not far away the Sannomiya Station, after arriving the station from the portline from the kobe airport, you just need to walk less than 10 minutes and you will discover the signboard of the hotel. Large room space for my family which were two adults and one kid (9 years old), the two bed are twin size (120cm/each), also large enough for my family~ Clean and quiet hotel even we live a room just closed to the road, convenient to find foods.

Let me start off with all the usual compliments. Good price and great location. Breakfast was good. The room was small but I was expecting this. What I was not expecting was the unusually very warm room and the air-con in the room when turn on only pumped out even hotter air! Also the window could not be opened to let in the nice cool winter air. Even the elevator was cooler! What a joke! There we were in December sweating it out in room. We were booked for 4 nights but I could not sleep and check out first thing the next morning. Luckily I managed to get another great deal at a 5-star hotel at 4am and had a good holiday in Kobe. I sincerely hope the management could look into this and perhaps even save money by cutting down the heating cost.
