Client booked this hotel for me a few times. I really like it a lot. The room is stylish and clean. It is in a great location near JR Sannomiya (next to a Tokyu Hands and Sauna). lots of good restaurants are in the area. Price is also very good for a hotel like this.

This hotel is in the busy area of Sannomiya, just a 5 minute walk from the station - if you can find the right exit - from memory the JR Line exit. The decor is modern and up to date. The rooms, as usual for Japan, were small but perfectly formed. The air con worked a treat in the heat... More

Service is prompt and efficient. Room and bathrooms are kept very clean. It is located near Ikuta Shrine, Tokyu Hands with many shopping streets and restaurants nearby. Also very convenient if you are taking the airport limosine to Kansai airport, the bus stop is 5 - 8 mins walk from this hotel.

Stayed here for a night in the superior twin plus room before heading up to Arima. It was conveniently located, near Sannomiya Station, Sannomiya Center street, Nankinmachi, Tokyo Hands, etc. Room was nice and clean, though small, there was a spacious toilet/bath area. There was also complimentary coffee in the hotel, so bring your own tumbler so that you can... More

Centrally located in Kobe which is really convenient to get-around. The room is small but neat and clean. It would have been a plus if there was coffee facility in the room. However, they serve free coffee at the hotel lobby.
