Stayed for 5 nights while attending a conference in Port Island. The location is excellent as it is located within the Sannomiya Central Station and annexing other bus stations (i.e. Shinki bus station and Mint Kobe bus station). Multiple shopping centres (CPA, Sogo, Mint Kobe and Sannomiya Central Street) form the hotel's perimeter. There are also convenience stores and restaurant... More

From outside hotel looks quite worn-out as it is integrated into the Sannomiya station building. However the floors and rooms are fully refurbished and leave good impression: no smells, furniture is clean and well maintained. Bed, mattress and pillows are of perfect quality and sleep was great. Airconditioning worked ok, no complaints about it. Even without it some fresh air... More

The hotel is conveniently located near Sannomiya Train Station. Lots of convenient stores and restaurants around the hotel. A coffee shop is also located at the ground floor of the building. The room is quite small but ok for single or couples, and may be even ok for 2 kids to squeeze in. The room is also very very clean... More

If you're looking for a glamourous hotel with luxurious rooms, this isn't the hotel for you. But if you're wanting somewhere central with fantastic access to transportation, shops, the sites and restaurants combined with clean rooms, friendly staff and good wifi you can't get much better than this. The name says it all - the hotel is situated above the... More

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
