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

Place is very conveniently located, the train stations are just a short walk away. The hotel is within the shopping area, and there are streets after streets of shopping here. A lot of eateries, and convenient stores around as well, (for Muslim tourists), there are even halal eateries and a mosque located nearby. Hotel room is spacious, clean and toiletries... More

Dear Mr/Ms Haysiah Thank you very much for staying at Hotel Monterey Kobe. As you referred the comment, We offer a glimpse into the architecture and atmosphere of medieval-era Italy. We recreate the Romanesque character of a Northern Italian castle through its use of flagstones and arched colonnades. The hotel is located in the center of downtown SANNOMIYA and is... 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). Hotel staff met our bus and carted most of our luggage uphill on the side street too narrow for our bus. The room was adequate and clean. The wifi worked seamlessly. The buffet breakfast was ample and included... More

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)

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
