5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2016

The hotel is in a very good location - near many restaurants and shops, yet it is around the corner from the Ikuta Shrine so it is also quiet and far from the busy street. The service is excellent and the rooms are spacious by Japanese standards. Very strong wifi and we connected quickly each time we entered our room.... More

Only a short walk from Sannomiya station, the Osaka airports bus stop and downtown shopping district makes this a very convenient place to stay in Kobe. Being in a lively area with hundreds of restaurants in within a few minutes walk is also a bonus. Travelling alone -my single room was small as you would expect in Japan,but it had... More

The location of this hotel was perfect for us, 5 minutes from Sannomiya JR station, and close to the waterfalls and cable car. It felt in the heart of a great restaurant area. The hotel has the feel of an old (in a good way- with style) European hotel, and the rooms are ample, with very helpful staff. The only... More

As expected from Hotel Monterey Name in Japan, Monterey Kobe is also a fine, cute and somewhat different pseudo-european in good way Hotel in Japanese business/city level lodging standard. This place in Kobe is especially cute with a monastry like setting at one side on the ground floor. (it seemed to be built for marriage ceremony) Even though the room... More

I'm not sure what to think or write about the Hotel Monterey Kobe. It's a funny little hotel in many ways. I'm not knocking it, it's just a little unusual! First off if I was staying here in Germany or Spain, I'd be raving about its Old World charm - but in Japan that old world charm is on the... More

The hotel is within the City and is walking distance to restaurants, shopping centers, onsen and other beautiful spots in Kobe! As you ride in the elevator, you feel like entering into a time capsule due to its not-so-ordinary "floor-indicator" at the ground floor. Staff are very good. Wifi is not good.

Our small tour group arrived very late at night due to long lines at Kansai Airport for customs and immigration (2 hours).

The hotel was very easy to find, right next to Ikuta Shrine a simple stroll away from Sannomiya station. Solid breakfest (japanese/western), good enough wifi, polite staff and regular good quality rooms (quite spacious rooms for japan)
