Great hotel! Old school charm ! Marvelous breakfast and service and large rooms. Clean and cozy and quiet. Not recommended for under-thirty punks who do not know how to live. If you are part of the Wi-Fi set, this place is not for you.

To be honest, we have never paid this much for a hotel before. So we didn't quite know what to expect. But if hotels are rated from 1 to 5 stars, this would be a 7. The staff were exceptionally accommodating. The room had stuff in it that you wouldn't dream of looking for. They even had slippers for my... More

So this is basically a B&B in Kobe (maybe slightly larger). Looks like someone's European house from the 1800s. Keys are metal and old school. Breakfast was meh.

While we live in Osaka, not far from Kobe, and wanted a quiet place to refresh and enjoy some good food on Christmas Day. The Kitano hotel is... More

First off just want to say we love Kobe. The city is fascinating in many ways and for Westerners (English speaking), it's a great base for exploring the central Japan region (Kyoto, Osaka, Himeji, etc) with convenient bullet trains zipping you to all the major destinations under an hour. We arrived at the Kobe Kitano after a week in Tokyo.... More
