Visiting my daughter while she is studying in Kobe. Settled on the Sannomiya Terminal Hotel mostly because of location. Spent a week there. Was perfect for my needs. Nice clean room overlooking the Main Street. Not noisy. Staff very friendly. Good wifi connection. There is a little cafe downstairs, I ate there most mornings, very convenient. Fridge in room.

The location is good. However our room was overpriced and under air conditioned. The B-Kobe is also in central Kobe, is 1/2 the price and is better value. Unless booking well in advance hotel accommodation on Friday and Saturday night can be hard to find.

We stayed there for our last night in Japan. You cannot fault the location as it is the centre of Kobe and you have access to the JR line, the bus for Kansai airport and also all the shops and restaurant around Sannomiya. My main complaint was that we were charged about Y25,000 for one night excluding breakfast. Exactly the... More

Small rooms, with some noise both from other hotel guests and traffic noise from down by the station. For a business hotel it was quite typical Japanese, but not somewhere to stop for any length of time.

This hotel is located directly in Sannomiya station. This location is very convenient as you have a lot of restaurant around; If you have a flight from kansai Airport, you can either take the Limousine bus or the port Liner (I prefer the boat). The room are big enough and the breakfast is correct. I recommend this hotel.

The Sannomiya Terminal Hotel is a basic but nice hotel in the main downtown area of Kobe. For Japanese standards the rooms are quite large although the bathroom is small. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Staff is pleasant, helpful and friendly. I don’t think you can beat the value. There are a couple of restaurants in the hotel... More

This hotel is situated in the heart of Kobe, Sannomiya. This location is very convenient for getting around in Kobe, as all train companies and subways go through Sannomiya Station. The rooms are average, but the cleanliness is great (it is, after all, in Japan), and every floor have laundromats and vending machines. The staff is very helpful, and most... More

Right on top of the Sannomiya station, it is extremely convenient for getting around Kobe. Japanese 'business' hotels offer good value for money and this is no exception. Everything you need packed into a small room, but the rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. With this hotel, it over looked Kobe station and the view was quite pleasant, and... More

Sannomiya Terminal is an average hotel but very good locaction. Rooms are small, almost remind me of my university hostel. Bathroom is very small. No resturant but there are several resturants at the top. Best to go out and eat at various nice resturants outside. Hotel could do with some modernisation. But it is no nonsense inexpensive especially if you... More

If you are a smoker, this hotel is fine - the rooms were clean (we stayed in a double), not too small, and well located. The western dishes for breakfast were ok (the bread wasn't great but ok). If you do not smoke and are sensitive to smoke smell - don't stay here. We didn't expect smoking to be still... More
