Everything is fine. The rooms are big, definitely clean and neat, just that the toilet is a little too small. What that caught my attention is the view! It's was simply stunning. I stayed in the Western/Japanese room, on the 7th floor and I had a great view of the Maiko Bridge. It looked so perfect, just like those printed... More

This is a good hotel within walking distance of the JR station, which is great if you have the JR pass. very easy to get into Kobe (or for that matter, Osaka or Kyoto). The onsen was nice enough, and it was nice to walk along the harbor near Akashi Bridge. Better than a lot of other 'business hotels' I've... More

Although not the best hotel we stayed in while visiting Japan, it is so close to the Akashi Kaikyo Bridge that it works. The decor is a bit dated and really, really full of tourists from all around the world. The service is not fantastic although not poor, just nothing special. With the said the breakfast service is quite good,... More

One of the longest bridges in the world .the hotel had an excellent Spanish restaurant bar in the top floor with I often enjoyed sangria and... More

Booked a corner room - bathtub has floor-to-ceiling panoramic view of the bay and the bridge, but it's not onsen bath. The bedroom itself is not big (based on the class of the hotel, the grand lobby, etc). Room interior is reasonable. I used the free shuttle bus service to/from JR station, and the nearby factory outlet mall at Tarumi.... More

This is a large hotel at a conveniet place for public transportation to visit Awaji island for instance. The onsen? the bath, was far for people without perfect knees, which could have been useful for us to be informed about.

Stayed in a twin room and must say very spacious (compare to usual Japanese standards). Great view of the Akashi Kaikyo bridge right from the hotel window. Nice garden & church by the poolside, all facing the bridge view. Staff spoke decent English & friendly. There's free car-park for residents staying, yet if you travel by train, the location is...

On the second leg of my business trip I was fortunate enough to stay in this hotel. I must say this is probably one of the best experiences I have had in a Japanese hotel. The staff are extremely friendly and will bend over backward to help you. The rooms are very spacious, I stayed in a double room. The... More
