It's about 10+ minutes away from the hotel. The value is not bad with really good night view you can take pictures of if you stayed in a higher floor. The room is basic style, nothing fantastic. Don't take its breakfast, there are lots of other breakfast choices when you enter train station or subway station area! If you want... More

I stayed for 4 nights in the hotel in early October 2012 to attend a reunion (originally scheduled for 3, but I arranged for a fourth so I could spend more time in Kobe). I selected the hotel primarily based on cost and proximity to the part of town where my activities were taking place. It is about 10 minutes... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in winter. It is a bit of walk (10-15 min) from Sannomiya Station, so if you have a luggage you may want to hop on a taxi from the station - 5 minutes drive (700-800 yen). On your way to the station, the hotel offers a small shuttle bus, which is great. You walk... More

I stayed here for work. It was a conference at the Convention Centre out on the island. It was a good location for that reason as it was a short walk and train ride to the conference. Location was also good for walking to/from Sannomiya train station and the close by shopping districts. The reason I wouldn't stay again was... More
