All hotelrooms are small in Japan in this price category, but this one really managed to make it micro. Maybe it was the 'least good' room in the hotel, because did not look like the photos of the rooms showing more space. Was supposed to be a 2 persons room, but even for 1 person too small. The decoration is... More

This big hotel is located in a quiet area about a 15-minute walk from Kobe-Sannomiya JR Station (not the Shinkansen station). Our room, although small, had everything we needed, including wifi, TV, fridge and our own bathroom with bath and lots of hot water. We found there were many rules, and staff seemed to be in a hurry. They were... More

Hotel is great for short stays! Lovely and helpful staff. Free wifi and coffee! The room was clean and tidy and had all the amenities you need for a short stop over. Only a 6 minute walk to the main station and close to shopping and restaurants!

Lets start on a positive note, the Coffee in the lobby was free and good. That is probably the only positive thing about this hotel. The room was old and had its best days probably somewhere in the 80s. The bathroom had an awefull smell and the soap was in a dispenser on the wall. For some reason it was... More

I love my beef, so decided to swing by Kobe to visit the birthplace of Kobe beef. We booked the hotel after seeing decent reviews on TripAdvisor and booking.com, plus it was really cheap (5k plus per night). To be fair, the hotel is located at a quiet part of town, relatively near the Sannomiya station (10-15 mins by foot).... More

Exit the Sannomiya station from the East exit. Sannomiya is NOT connected by a free JR line from Shin Kobe, unlike many other shinkansen stops. Never fear, it is only a one stop ride on the subway. Once at Sannomiya, there are JR line stations to Kobe downtown, the harbour area etc. From Shin Kobe, there is also a loop... More
