Reviewed 30 August 2017 via mobile

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.
