4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

The b Hotel Kobe is conveniently located about 5 minutes walk from the JR station Sannomiya in Kobe, and right near the subway if you need to catch the train from Shin-Kobe station (only one stop but quite a long walk). The location is great as it's right in the heart of the shops and restaurants, and an easy walk to other parts of town.
We booked via Expedia, and were surprised at how large our room was - we paid £60 a night and had two huge beds, a big desk and an enormous bathroom with sit-down shower and the fanciest toilet we have come across in Japan! I did see one of the smaller rooms, and would recommend upgrading to the bigger one if it's not much more. It was by far the biggest, most comfortable and most luxurious hotel we encountered in this price bracket. As standard, there was free internet, yukata, slippers, kettle and ion hairdryer etc. Everything was very clean and comfortable, and I would definitely recommend.
