While the hotel is a short walk from the rail station, it's convenience is not worth it. The rooms are tiny, even for Japan, and not comfortable. The room felt old, the furniture was scratched up, and the lampshade had been melted. Not replacing a melted lampshade gave an indication of the quality of this hotel. The room was very... More

The maps are true! This hotel is really close to the Sannomiya Station in Kobe. It is not the closest but it certainly is not far from the station when you are lugging around bags. It is just 2 corners from the station, in a very safe part of time. The staff is not very adept at English but they... More

This was real professionally maintained hotel. Japan hotel rooms are usually small but I wont complain about it. The linen in rooms, furniture and entire hotel are very well arranged and maintained nearly 3 or 4 star hotel. It is within walking to JR Sannomiya station which connects to Osaka and Kyoto via direct JR trains while Shin Kobe is... More

I have no issues with the staff at this hotel, they were very helpful. The location was great, lots to see nearby and easy to get around Kobe and out into surrounding areas. This is the second hotel I have stayed in within the APA chain, and it follows the same pattern as the first. The rooms are small. The... More

Located close to the Sannomiya Station. A convenience store and post office are a 2-minutes' walk away. Space was rather tight in the room: I found it alright since I only stayed a night, any longer and I may have felt claustrophobic. Receptionists were helpful, from offering to keep luggage before room was ready for check-in, to providing a guide... More

Very close to the Kobe Sanomyia train station, though I'd recommend Google Map/Mapquesting it first, since it's one of the shorter high rises in the area and it's a block down from the main road. (unlike some other hotels right on the road which you'd have to be blind to miss). Rates are listed on their English website; bookings can... More

The hotel is rather cheap and well located, close to the Sannomiya station from where you can take a train to Osaka, Kyoto, Kansai airport etc. The staff at the reception is very nice but there might be problems with English. Rooms are clean, with tiny bathrooms, hair-dryer etc but very very small. Beds can be too short if you... More

The rooms are fairly clean and well kept and there is a convieniently located "Seattles Best Coffee" in the lobby area. Sannomiya station is very close by and internet access is free in all rooms via a LAN cable (there is no wireless). There are several 24 hour convienience stores nearby.
