Rating: 3.7 stars. Old World, New World: both styles offer appeal, and each attracts followers according to their fancies. Come to Hotel Monterey Kobe for the former. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was plenty clean and comfortable, and was slightly larger than expected. Internet speed was acceptable. Two small negatives: the elevators were a little slow...in keeping... More

This hotel tries to present itself as an old-fashioned dated French abode but instead looks more like a dunk cavern that emits strong mold-and-cigar scents, giving one a drift that it is a trip to a haunted chateau of yore. THE UPSIDE: 1. The location Is central and close to everything, bus and train stations, shopping malls, bars and restaurants,... More

We stayed at the Monterey Kobe for 2 nights in July 2014. There is very little to recommend this hotel. Clearly targeting the discount wedding market, the building has been designed as some kind of faux Spanish castle, interpreted in this case as meaning dark, dank and clammy. Service was dreadful. The receptionist did not even turn around from her... More

Stayed two nights in Spring 2014, and found the hotel staff to be most helpful and willing to solve problems if they arose. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Kobe and convenient to all the major shops and night life – which bustles just outside the hotel. Had a room facing inner courtyard so did not have...

Surprisingly spatious room for this category of hotels. Absolutely a good value if you are not dependent on 4 stars and up. Walking distance to entertainment area in Kobe. Will absolutely consider next time we plan to visit Kobe.

I chose this hotel based on its proximity to Sannomiya Station. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the interior is, as other reviewers have written, reminiscent of a European inn, with arched doorways, tiled floors, and a vine-bedecked courtyard. The room was one of the biggest I've had when staying in a Japanese hotel, with a separate... More

My wife and I reserved, via the internet, a double, non smoking room at the Hotel Monterey Kobe the middle of August. The hotel was recommended by a friend who lives in Kobe. Our friend had stayed in the hotel a couple of times with friends and felt quite comfortable recommending it to us. We arrived September 6, 2013 and... More

The hotel may not be easily located initially. But it is quite conveniently located fairly close to Sannomiya station. It is very near to Hands, and not too far from Kobe chinatown. However during my stay, the hotel was always packed of people who were attending weddings at the chapel at the ground level. The lift was very slow, and... More
