Great for families as they offer triple sharing accommodations. Small lobby. Very good breakfast buffet selections. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Vendo machine available only in two floors. Walking distance from convenience stores.

We stayed in this hotel for one night and it was a refreshing stay after some hectic travelling. The hotel is at walking distance from the railway station and has nice cozy rooms and the one we got had two windows with good views in both directions. To reach the hotel from Shin Kobe station, take the train to Sannomiya... More

The rooms were not as clean as most Japanese hotels and the smell of smoking was quite strong. Other than that the staff were friendly and accommodating. If you are looking to use this as a base for other cities it is not very convenient. My friend and I stayed here because all of the hotels were booked in Kyoto... More

Caveat: My first trip to Japan, on business. We stayed in 3 different hotels in Tokyo, Kobe & Nagoya. Don't know what to expect of Japanese standards. It's the poorest of the 3 hotels we stayed in, and very pricey for what it is. Staff barely spoke English & not too friendly. Bed was a small double, very hard. Bathroom... More

The Kobe Luminous Hotel is a nice middle of the range hotel in Hyogo, one JR stop from Kobe. It's only a 4 minutes walk to the JR station so even if you are travelling with luggage, it's a short walk. Not much around the hotel but it's a good launching point to other places. The staff is friendly and... More

The hotel is simple but well-run. Free WiFi, very reasonable prices, simple yet good breakfast, quiet, and with some very good restaurants within walking distance. Located conveniently near that train station. If you are looking for a fancy hotel, this is not it, but if you just need a clean and tidy hotel with all the necessary amenities for business... More

Conveniently located near hyogo sta and strong wifi too. The only issues that I faced was the fact that hotel required check out time of 1100 am and didn't inform during check in. Being used to 1200 am check out time, I wasn't aware of the same and was not ready by the time. No flexibilities of the extended time,... More

It was clean and tidy. Very close to Hyogo train station and easy to find. Reliable internet and nice big room for a very reasonable price in Kobe. Happy to stay here again if in Kobe. We were in Kobe for a wedding and stayed a few nights in the city which was about 3 times the price of this... More
