Hotel does not have complimentary bottled water in rooms. They sell bottled water for ¥140. There is a 7-11 store across the hotel where u can buy bottled water at ¥100 only. They have free wifi and free shuttle service from and to Hotel to Sannomiya station.

Hotel Pearl City Kobe is what they call a "business hotel" in Japan, meaning a hotel where you just go to sleep. This is meant for people who attend conferences on Port Island or are here for business purposes, the hotel is not meant for relaxation. I stayed here one night during a conference which I attended. It is adequate,... More

It is away from the centre of Kobe. I had to use shuttle bus of the hotel or train to go to Sannomiya where I could take other transportation or for meals. If anyone does not mind spend extra 20 minutes (each way) on transportation or does not have other options, pick this.

Kobe is a bustling city but this hotel is located in Port Island which is about 20 minutes train ride on Port Liner from Sannomiya Station where "everything" Kobe is. Port Island was created to become a business and commercial mecca but economic downturn in Japan probably contributed to it becoming just a sparse reclaimed island. But the hotel provides... More

Our initial impressions of this hotel were good. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the reception area was spacious and comfortable. The rooms however, although not small, felt cramped. The main downside for us was the location of this hotel on Port Island, which is mainly a business and residential area. Finding somewhere to eat locally was difficult initially,... More

Quite decent hotel provided that you have less than 1.90m. If you have more than that height you could have a problem with the toilet and bed. The hotel was clean but the concept of a European breakfast is quite different to someone from Europe. Small round cheese and salami for breakfast which in Europe a guest would not looked... More

This is in a quiet location slightly away from the hustle-bustle of Sannomiya and we loved staying here. It is conveniently located near port liner stations (3 of them) and Hotel offers free shuttle bus service to Sannommiya center. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only downside is that there are no eateries very nearby ( Hotel has one.... More

Stayed here April 2014. In Pearl City area of Kobe (across channel) They provide bus transportation to hotel from station, but you might be better taking the Port City Liner (the metro/subway equivalent) to the station near the hotel. It's about a 15 min ride, with a 2-5min walk to hotel. The area seems deserted, but the hotel is not.... More

The staff was rude, the walls were paper thin (and I was surrounded by families with young children), there was no iron (or they wouldn't lend it to me), and the whole place seemed run down. If I didn't have to do some work a 2-minute walk away, I would NEVER come here.

Great check in - very smooth and friendly. Room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was a good size with the bath being slightly bigger than in regular business hotels in Japan. Buffet dinner looked rather dull but the a la carte Tonkatsu was lovely. Will stay again if in Kobe.
