Pros: Great Location and within 10 minutes walking to Kobe Tower, Meriken Park, Earthquake Memorial, Mosaic, Children's Museum, Maritime Museum, and Harborland. All of the staff were friendly and helpful and tried there best to make our stay pleasant. Free shuttle to and from nearby train station (leaves every 20 mins). Nice views of the harbor and port areas. The... More

My room wasn't big but it was comfortable and the view from the room was fantastic. The hotel served a variety of food for breakfast. Japanese, Chinese, Italian and American dishes were spread on big tables. All tasted nice. A downside was that I had to wait for a long time for a table. Service was rather poor at the... More

The hotel lobby welcomes you with a modern stylish venue. Check in is fast and uneventful. Rooms are not very big, albeit above average for the country. The breakfast is what really makes this hotel stand out: it is very well prepared and offers both Japanese and international specialties. Two or three days are not even enough to try all... More

I stayed here in May 2013 with my husband. In short this hotel and the staff are simply amazing. We had a twin room (2 double beds) on a higher floor that looked out directly over the water with a large terrace area with sun loungers and table and chairs. One of my highlights staying at this hotel was sitting... More

Up-ed my budget and booked Meriken Park Oriental in order to be right in the centre of Kobe's port landscape in order to enjoy the gorgeous harbour views. Turned out to be an excellent decision as service and location were simply 5 star - and deserving of its rank as a premier 5 star hotel in Kobe. Whilst not exactly... More

We took advantage of a super internet rate for this hotel as usually it is high end. Located right on the harbour with balconies and views from every room, it is quite close to many shops and restaurants. Apparently there is also a shuttle bus to the train station, although we didn't use it as downtown is only a 15... More

I attended a business conference here. The hotel had an unusual shape to it almost like the top of a cruise liner. All of the rooms had a balcony. Mine looked out onto a ferris wheel that lit up at night until 11.30pm - was very nice. There was a nice group of local shops within a 10-15 minute walk... More
