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

As all hotels were booked, this was a last minute booking for me...and I was pleasantly surprised. The room was nice & clean Staff spoke English Very close to the JR Hyogo Station which was a big plus as was easy to gain access to other places. Lots of restaurants and convenience store around. The only negative side might be... 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

Location is convenient. Three-minute walk to JR local station. Size of triple room is average. No problem of free WiFi. Good breakfast. Many restaurants and shops around. Polite staff. OK for business and leisure.

This was really the worst hotel experience in my life. We had booked a small double room, no-smoking. When we arrived, they told us that they did not have this kind of room available any more as they were all taken. So they gave us another type of double room, and they said it was no-smoking. When we walked into... More
