If you are travelling by Shinkansen, it's a low cab fare to this hotel from Shin Kobe Station. At the time of writing it was around 1,000yen. Different style from most Japanese hotels, this being built in a very European style. Courteous staff and good breakfast. Definitely would stay here again.

This hotel posted fraudulent charges on my credit card. When I complained to my credit card company, the hotel provided fraudulent “proof” of the charges, despite the charges being obviously fake. Stay away from these crooks.

The hotel is of European style. The decorations in every small detail are wonderful in which you can see that the owner makes great efforts to make the hotel full of foreign style. Apart from the decorations, the restaurant is fantastic.

The hotel is near the train station and located near a lot of shops. It is a bit dark and dated. The elevator is interesting and the breakfast is good. We forgot to ask for a non-smoking room, so the sheets and pillows smelled like cigarettes in our room. We would've asked to be transferred but we were too tired.

Comfortable room, well kept and functional. Wifi was good. Nice bath room. Nothing special. Location is pretty convenient and the property is located in an area packed with restaurants and shops. Not far from the main train station and a short walk from the subway which goes right to the Shinkansen station.

I stayed at this hotel twice this month, both business trips. Plainly, this is not a hotel for business travelers. Although the location is good (close to subway and train albeit in a bit of a red light district), that's about it. Rooms are of normal size but quite worn and 'tired' (you'll find lots of scratches and discoloration) and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Monterey Kobe offers a glimpse into the architecture and atmosphere of medieval-era Italy. The hotel recreates the Romanesque character of a Northern Italian castle through its use of flagstones and arched colonnades. We invite you to rest in the comfortable sofas in the lobby area to cure your initial travel weariness. Then take a stroll through the courtyard where you can wander through the colonnades to the sound of flowing water from the fountains, helping to calm your spirit and evoke sentimental feelings of nostalgia. ... more   less
