We had a tiny room in Tokyo, but that seems spacious now compared to the extra tiny one we had here. The bathroom door opened in the wrong direction, making it feel even smaller. Location: halfway between Shin Kobe and Sannomiya station, about 10 minute walk from either, so not super convenient. There were restaurants and convieni nearby, and coin... More

I stayed here for about two weeks on a business trip. The staff was friendly, professional, and corrected the one small mix-up we had quickly and apologetically. The room was small, but expertly laid out with everything I needed. It had a single bed, a desk, a bathroom; it was just big enough for those features plus me. I bought... More

Hi, I stayed here for 1 night because a friend of mine couldn't host me that night so he booked this hotel for me. The reception staff are very friendly and I used most day the free wifi. The hotel it self is in horrible condition. All rooms smell like sigarette smoke. I wanted to swap to non-smoking room but... More

This hotel gets the record for the smallest double room we have ever encountered. It would be barely acceptable as a single (see photo). Don't share this room with someone who you don't want to be REALLY intimate with. As a bonus, our window faced on a blank wall about 3 feet away. All this for $120 a night. Lesson... More

My husband and I were passing through Kobe and did a last minute online booking for one night at the Green Hill Hotel Urban. I would have to say it was pretty decent considering we only used the room to sleep in. Pros - Great price for last minute stay - 5-10 minute walk from Sannomiya Station and Shin-Kobe Station...

This was a pleasant surprise during my recent visit to Kobe. There are two 'green hills' located roughly 1/2 way between ShinKobe Station and the main station in town, Sannomiya. My room was (predictably) small, but tidy and serviceable and only about $50. The Green Hill Urban has its own coffee shop, which doubles as a gift shop and the... More

I am currrently living in GHU for almost a week now. In my views, it the best hotel you can find for an ampunt of money which is considered dirt here in Japan. Moreover, this is located in the heart of the city ie Sannomiya so you won't have to worry a lot about convenience stores or food. They also... More

Greenhill hotel Kobe Located about 10 minutes walk from the Kobe railway, Greenhill hotel is a comfortable place to stay. English is hardly spoken, but the usual Japanese politeness and efficiency ensures you have a good stay. Internet is available in all rooms, and there is a fair buffet breakfast included (very limited in continental fare – it has more... More

Stayed in a single room, with its own toilet and shower cubicle. Room was clean though nothing special, but for the price you can't complain if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep while in Kobe. Easy to find & in walking distance from both Shinkobe and Sannomiya stations. Computer with free internet access in the lobby. Recommend it... More

Comfortable, clean and quiet. Only a weak smell of cigarettes (a souvenir from smoking guests) was a bit annoying. I recommend staying in this hotel.
