While the hotel is at a great location in Kobe and there is a general sense of luxury everywhere, the rooms feel slightly old. The pool area is good fun. We also had dinner at their Japanese restaurant on the 14th Floor and quite enjoyed the food.

Great location, close to the earthquake memorial and right across from the Harborland mall. Nice view of the harbor. The room was nice and clean, with a lovely balcony.The breakfast buffet was delicious. The staff here are very attentive and friendly. The shuttle bus to Sannomiya was a huge bonus! My only complaint is that the room felt a little... More

The Kobe Meriken Park Oriental hotel is situated in the middle of the port area of Kobe city and so is close to Mosaic and the Harbourland areas. This is therefore a good base for exploring the area. The hotel offers a regular bus that takes you around the Kobe sights and stops you off in Sannomiya, very useful. There... More

Stayed on our last night in Japan and had to take the luxury ocean suite here due to all hotels and other rooms being booked out. Super large private deck overlooking ocean, massive room with chase lounge, private change room with auto light and all the features. Polite, helpful, english speaking staff. There is something about being surrounded by water... More

We stayed for a couple of nights. A twin room with views to the harbour. Room was all we needed. The Steakhouse restaurant was a really great surprise. Fantastic food and great value with top story views of the harbour. Great location with an easy walk into the city.

Love this hotel very much! Large room and bathroom with awesome harbor view. The staffs were friendly and polite, free wifi and shuttle bus to Kobe center station. Walking distance to Kobe harborland. Not centrally located in the city centre, and you need to take the free shuttle bus to JR station which takes about 15 minutes. If you prefer... More

Staff are friendly,polite, got shuttle bus to and from main bus terminal, free wifi through out hotel. Near shopping and dinning area. Rooms have a balcony with park or harbor views. Most impressive is that there is a door in between the washroom and bed room, so if one wake up early won't disturb the other if you use the... More

Nice location 10 minutes taxi ride from JR station. We had a beautiful view over the Kobe tower. We bought non smoking room and got a smoking room. We complained and they change us to a non smoking room. I guess they tried... Definately the hotel needs upgrade and the carpet in the room had a lot of stains...more a... More

The location of the hotel is good. The staffs are very friendly but not yet considerate. I parked my car at their hotel parking, when I checked out, they didn't mentioned that I can get a hotel guest discount for parking. The overnight parking rate for hotel guests is 1500 yen, and I paid 8000 yen for the parking. That... More

I stayed for approximately one month in July for business. The staff, housekeeping, front desk, bell captain's, restaurant, etc., were all excellent. Every staff member I encountered - and I probably encountered most of them - seemed genuinely interested in providing excellent service. Location is pretty good. On the water - you can not get any more "on the water"... More
