Very close to the Kobe Sanomyia train station, though I'd recommend Google Map/Mapquesting it first, since it's one of the shorter high rises in the area and it's a block down from the main road. (unlike some other hotels right on the road which you'd have to be blind to miss). Rates are listed on their English website; bookings can be made online. Very good trimmings inside. However, the single sized room I was in was quite small; this should not come as a surprise but be forewarned. Those sensitive to smoking should be sure to book a non-smoking room; someone nearby was smoking and I could smell it; I don't mind but it was enough that it would have gotten my mom upset. All you can eat breakfast had eggs, sausage, salad, and a good number of other things for 1200 yen at the time of writing; I was quite satisfied. For other meals, there's a McDonalds down the block, a 7-11 two blocks away, and many others in vicinity. The train station and the area just ot the northwest (to say nothing of the Sogo) also have many food options (and were packed with shoppers and shops the Sunday afternoon I was there).
English Speaking staff is hit or miss, but a rudimentary amount of survival Japanese will be sufficient. The dude who checked me in on Saturday night had enough basic English to get the job done, and another woman the next day had decent English.
In all, I'd stay there again if I was in Kobe. Note that I'm a not very picky single traveler with lots of time in Asia. You may have different needs, especially if you're with family.
