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

For the not only historical but also stylish building and its interior, and for the breakfast prepared carefully, Hotel Monterey Kobe is definitely the place I am willing to stay for the next trip to Kobe.

We stayed for a night at Hotel Monterey while spending a long weekend in the Kobe area. We selected the hotel because of its location close to Sannomiya Station, due to a late night arrival at Kobe Airport and an early morning departure to Akashi the following day. The hotel is very convenient to Sannomiya, the main central rail station... More

Stayed here as a mini semester visiting, Kyoto, Osaka, Nara and Kobe. The room charge was at a discount because of room inspections the day after and the need to check out before 9 in the morning. The room was a semi double but felt like a prison cell. It was almost to small for one person and for 2... More

One of the few hotels we disliked in Japan. Unlike the Monterey in Nagasaki, this one seemed a bit tired. The room smelt of stale smoke and the cleaning left a little to be desired - the aircon vent and the underside of the bed were filthy (not something I would normally care about but it does make you think...
