About fifteen minutes walk downhill from the Shinkansen station so ask at tourist information there and they'll give you detailed directions. A lovely hotel by all accounts. Very different to the business class ones so common in Japan. Individualised rooms with different stencilled art on doors and themed floors. Reasonable/average size for Japan with comfy beds and powerful shower. Keen... More

Within easy walking distance of both Shinkansen and train station. Great value for money, clean room, plenty of room for our needs, all the things you'd expect were provided - soaps, shampoo, etc, travel razors, hairbrush, toothbrushes, vanity items. Fridge within the room. A bottle of water is provided each day as part of room service. Free safety deposit boxes... More

We got a double room around £50 a night. The hotel is very good - the room is pretty big for Japan too. Service seems fine - polite and formal and plenty of people around. The location is great. A very quick walk (5min or less) from the JR train and a similar distance to Shin-Kobe. On the door step... More

Hotel is conveniently located, about 7 minutes walk from Sannomiya Station, but away from the hustle and bustle of the town centre; yet within close proximity to Kitano tourist spots (within walking distance). Friendly and helpful Reception staff. The Hotel Lobby was quiet and not crowded most of the time with a nicely decorated cosy cafe at the entrance. Hotel... More

Access The hotel is in a quiet corner mid way between Sannomiya and Shin-Kobe station. It is about 15 min walk from either way. I find the hotel instruction to get there not very helpful.
