Loved the hospitality ambiance and location of this hotel at Kobe. Market place is nearby. Eating joints are at close distance. Stayed there for one night on official visit. Will come back again with family

Dear Mr/Ms.nitya800 Thank you very much for staying at Hotel Monterey Kobe. As you referred the comment,the hotel is located in the center of downtown SANNOMIYA and is in a good neighborhood.

Ok, it's not Europe but it's kinda close. The hotel has a lovely old ambiance of Europe , maybe Portugal in the 70s. The rooms are really charming. Tired of the cookie cutter chain hotels? This one is for you. Lovely decorating. A bit worn. Way too dark to read but it grows on you and is quite comfortable. The...

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...

The entrance to the hotel is camouflaged by the foliage on the walls. Upon entering, you will notice an open courtyard. The lobby area and the corridors are dimly-lit to give you the "Mideval" feel of the place. The elevator at the lobby was quite interesting. The room we had was also dimly-lit, looked old and in need of renovation,...

The most western-style building we stayed in while in Japan -- stone building, dark lobby areas, reminiscent of a church in Western Europe. Seems to do a big wedding business. Helpful staff; person at desk called & made the hotel reservation for us at our next destination.

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
