The Kobe Oriental is a wonderful hotel. It has creative architecture, is located conveniently in Kobe near industry and some tourist areas, and has a top-notch breakfast buffet (Santa Monica). My room (1306) had 2 sets of sliding doors out onto a huge balcony that faced two directions over the bay- so I could enjoy the sights of Kobe, and... More

Got a great offer for this hotel on booking.com. North facing room with a direct view of Kobe Tower. Was really looking forward to that and it didn't disappoint, especially since I was keen on photographing Kobe Port after dark. Room was spacious too, and full of various amenities. The hotel facilities and floors had a classy, European touch, such... More

We had the 'sort of' pleasure of staying at the Meriken for 4 nights last week. Let's start with the good: Location: the location is really good. Within walking distance from Umie and Mosaic, and with regular shuttles to Sannomiya, its tough to beat the convenience. Views: With rooms opening out onto open balconies, the views of the harbour, the... More

This hotel is build right after the earthquake in 1995, and I guess at that time it was one of the finest hotels in the region. Since then, I don't think they've done much. We really got the feeling of travelling back to the 90th, from the reception to the rooms to the sky bar. That said, it has a... More

First time to Kobe and I chose this hotel. The room was soooo great and comfortable. The night view from my room was so stunning! The hotel staffs were very friendly and helpful, no question about it. My little bit concern was the location. It is pretty far from central Kobe, like Sannomiya and Shin-Kobe. But I think for that... More

Clean, efficient and of course, fabulous views. The room was fairly large and well equipped. Staff were friendly and helpful. The ambience was a little lacking and we were put off using the hotel bar by the cover charge, which seemed a little unreasonable for hotel guests.

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
