The staff are very friendly here. And the location and view is not bad. However, I don’t think this hotel is ready for the modern Western traveler. First, it’s very outdated. The rooms are old, the couches and furniture are tired looking, and the bathroom is bare bones. The sheets were scratchy. The service is friendly, albeit amateurish. We did the laundry service which was prompt but confusing. Don’t expect a luxury level of service you would expect from a FS, RC, or other western luxury hotel brands. The room service was also confusing. English was not translated well which caused mistakes in ordering. I was hoping for a more western style hotel, however this was not the case. I am hoping Hyatts acquisition of SLH (parent company) can come in and make the necessary changes.

Found ourselves in Kobe and needed a place to stay. Le Suite has a good T.A. rating so decided to try it. It turned out to be a great decision. First the negative, … none! The positive: located in the harbour area with parks, shopping, coffee shops and restaurants. Unfortunately, poor Kobe planning has a raised highway nearby. We spent two days at the hotel. From the room, to the restaurants this is a first-class property. Whoever trained the staff did an excellent job. Every staff member who we interacted with smiled, bowed endlessly, was interested in our comfort and seemed to like their job. The staff made a great stay fabulous. Room: we had a large room with a great water/city view. The highlight was the bathroom, it featured a jacuzzi bathtub big enough for 5 with a great shower. Our room had two large double beds, I asked if they had king sized bed. Our check-in lady said let me see, came back and said none were available and preceded to push the two large beds together. There are two restaurants, although expensive were great. Breakfast was served in room. The Japanese breakfast set menu was a feast. If you find yourself in Kobe this hotel is a great choice. One of the better hotels we have stayed at in a long time.

Our jaws dropped when we walked into our “room” - separate tea room, huge balcony, great view of harbor and jacuzzi with tv, separate shower and toilet, writing table, refrigerator, coffee maker, huge comfy bed, more. Across the way is Mosaics/Harborland with shops and restaurants. Best hotel in years!!!!!

We used the hotel for our second wedding anniversary. The welcome service hand towel smells good and makes you feel relaxed immediately. All rooms have a luxurious rococo style with an ocean view. You can spend a blissful time while enjoying the scenery that is unique to Kobe, such as the Mosaic Ferris wheel and the Port Tower. We had dinner in the room to prevent infectious diseases.It was an impression that it was cold overall..Next time I would like to have it in the restaurant. After taking a jacuzzi bath with a view of the sea, we stayed up late relaxing on the terrace with the night breeze.When you get sleepy, you can snuggle up in the fluffy bed. Breakfast was very satisfying with lots of bread and fruit.

Luxury and location. Good service. Worked really hard (and successfully) to get us a good restaurant reservation for a Saturday night, which we should have preplanned (thanks to Fujita). Visit the harbor and Kawasaki museum (short walk) while here, and enjoy the short free nightly son et lumber (lights/music/fountain) outside the Notre Dame wedding location next door.

Had a large room on the 9th floor with an incredible view of the harbor. Room was clean and modern. My wife enjoyed the TV in the bathroom (for bath time). Enjoyed room service breakfast. The food was good and the service was excellent. The only negative was the bed pillows. One pillow was not enough and two were too much. Parking was easy and reasonably priced. Would stay again.

My wife and I stayed 3 nights in October of 2019 just before the pandemic struck. We love Kobe and return often. This was our first experience with the Hotel La Suite Harborland. It was absolutely scrumptious. The room was truly giant and very well appointed by Japanese standards. Everything was luxurious and the details were never slighted. We love classical architecture and decoration and the La Suite had those in spades. Service for breakfast was a little slow but the overall quality of the presentation was nearly perfect. The location on the harbor provides a very nice view and access to the boardwalk along the Kobe waterfront. We'll definitely return.

The hotel might look grand from the outside but inside it's just a boutique hotel. Rooms are big and we booked it for the jacuzzi in the bathroom. We ordered room service which wasn't good at all. The caviar was in a plastic box, the Kobe beef was cold and not savoury. We asked for a refund on our whole order for food. In addition, we could hear the couples in the next rooms screaming because they were drunk.

Having travelled extensively throughout the world and stayed in a number of top class hotels I would say that this hotel ranks with the best. The staff were efficient, helpful, courteous and professional. The room was large and well appointed with western and traditional Japanese bed areas. The decor of the hotel was reminiscent of a top class 1930 hotel and the staff matched this with there impeccable manners and class. The harbour views were superb and there was easy access to the harbour frontage, rail stations and central Kobe. A stay at this hotel is a must for anyone visiting Kobe.

There is no doubt that this is a beautiful hotel in an amazing location. The staff were friendly and the room had such an awesome view BUT it was ruined by the fact that the room stank of cigarette smoke even though we had booked a non-smoking room. We complained upon entering the room and were told they would move us. We waited for an hour with a complimentary drink (the smallest glass or wine you could think of!) and we were showed back to the exact same room. Once the air freshener had worn off, we could still smell cigarettes. It was disguisting! We were so looking forward to this beautiful hotel but unfortunately were left very disappointed. Breakfast was delicious and the staff very friendly but the whole experience was soured by the cigarette smoke.
