This APA had a great location! Close to the train station and to eateries. There is so much to see and do in Kobe! But like the other APA's we have stayed in, the beds are hard and the rooms compact..

Bit of a shock initially,but think small and it's OK...aircon works,the bed is comfortable. Not much room for baggage,but one can cope. Luxury this is not-but it's a good place to sleep close to central Kobe.

I enjoyed a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff and service were fantastic! The breakfast was delicious. The room and hotel was clean and they honoured my request for a non smoking floor. This is close to the subway and in a wonderful neighbourhood. I look forward to staying here again.

Let's say it's kinda small, it is Japan. Staying for convenience-close to Sannomiya hub-(it's one of the best & confusing one-lots of exits) - so having baggage going to hotel is okay-thank goodness for wheels! You gotta cross busy intersection but everyone has big bags. We brought a standard 25inch with wheels/ <10 mins walk. Check-in smooth-very little English spoken...

As other business hotels in Japan, Apa hotel Kobe Sanomiya is very convenient to access other places but room, lobby, the place for breakfast ... are too small, make me uncomfortable. Not only in Kobe, I stayed at Apa Hotel in some city in Japan, they seems have these common points, "too small" and a little stink.

While the hotel is a short walk from the rail station, it's convenience is not worth it. The rooms are tiny, even for Japan, and not comfortable. The room felt old, the furniture was scratched up, and the lampshade had been melted. Not replacing a melted lampshade gave an indication of the quality of this hotel. The room was very...

The maps are true! This hotel is really close to the Sannomiya Station in Kobe. It is not the closest but it certainly is not far from the station when you are lugging around bags. It is just 2 corners from the station, in a very safe part of time. The staff is not very adept at English but they...

I have no issues with the staff at this hotel, they were very helpful. The location was great, lots to see nearby and easy to get around Kobe and out into surrounding areas. This is the second hotel I have stayed in within the APA chain, and it follows the same pattern as the first. The rooms are small. The...
