It's a standard Japanese hotel, no check in earlier then stipulate time but location is good. It's near to train station, just 5-10mins walk, and all the shopping area. Another 15min walk will take you to ChinaTown and you can find restaurants everywhere nearby. Room size pretty Japanese standard just a bed and small working desk. You need to pay... More

The room is spacious compared to typical Japanese business hotels, and kept very clean. Front staffs are well trained and very helpful. Restaurants and convenience stores are close by and Sannomiya station is also pretty close. Highly recommended.

If you go to Kobe, I'd recommend that you stay in Sannomiya station area for convenience. I had a meeting in the Kobe Conference Center near the Portopia Hotel. I missed the registration deadline so a Japanese friend of mine invited me to book a room in the same hotel. It turned out to be a good deal for a... More

Spent one night on a recent business trip as I though it would be closer to Sannomiya bus station but in fact it was a good 10 min. brisk walking. I was rather put off with the receptionist when I arrived at 13:40pm and was told to come back at 14:00pm which is the standard check-in time. Other hotels would... More

Stayed at the Daiwa Roynet Sannomiya (4 nights) on a recent business trip as it is within walking distance to my office. I gave this place 4 stars because, based on my expectations, I was totally satisfied with my stay. My expectations: small rooms, airplane-like bathrooms, minimal English from the staff. While all these were true, I was still impressed... More

Spent two nights here as a tourist in Kobe. The hotel is centrally located in the downtown area, easy walk to train station. With an emphasis on efficiency, the hotel check in and out processes focus on minimizing human contact. the rooms are comfortable, with coffee machine and nice baths.

Simple, but comfy, and very convenient to the Sannomiya area. You can walk to just about everything. The place is clean, the rooms are fine, nothing great, but the beds are quite comfortable,which is always my biggest concern. The breakfast buffet is nothing to write home about, fairly boring compared to some other Japanese hotel buffets, but it's good enough... More

This hotel is located close to our office in Kobe and is simple but functional. It is a short walk to Sannomiya station which is also where the limo bus from Osaka airport arrives. There are also plenty of stores and restaurants in the area. The rooms are small and I'm glad I'm not tall otherwise you would not be... More

This hotel is an easy walk from Sannomiya station and is in a reasonable quiet location. Reception area is spacious and staff were friendly and efficient. They are not however too fluent with english. Enough to get you checked in and answer easy queries, but that's about it. I stayed in a single room which was small by european stanards,... More

The room is quite small (same as the Japanese Hotel), however very clean and comfortable. You can have your private time without disturbing ... Furthermore it's not far from the Sannomiya area (Shopping center, street, station) .... Let this hotel be the one choice for your destination
