Good value , clean , nice English speaking staff .The well laid out rooms are comfortable and slightly larger than average for Japan . Don't go to the overpriced and characterless Kobe sauna across the road... More

The staff at the front desk are the most helpful and friendly especially the young man with black frame spectacles. He gave tremendous help to us when my husband lost his wallet in Kobe. He was very sympathetic and eager to help translate our message to local language to the police. The night before we left Japan, the police informed... More

This hotel is one of the gems I booked in my recent trip. It is just a 5 mins walk from Sannomiya Station (JR/ Hankyu / Port Liner - short ride to Kobe airport). The best thing was that it was located in between Tokyu Hands and Donki (Don Quixote), both are my favourite shopping places in Japan. The rooms... More

Good room design. Beds are big, loved the toilet layout. Near train station and walking distance to chinatown. Lots of good eateries nearby. Lobby provided free coffee but no tea. At night lots of girls hanging around on the streets. Mayyconsider staying again.

The hotel is just next to the city subway station Sannomiya, can connect to Sannomiya JR and other railway lines through a underpass. Right next to the hotel is a great discount superstore which sell budget items. The hotel room is very spacious and the design is quite attractive too. Recommended.

Stayed just one night here and it was located central to the JR station with plenty of shops around. We paid $70 for the night and it came with twin beds, usual auto toilet and shower has little seat in it for relaxing. TV no english channels. ***Do not have the in-house breakfast....terrible***

It is a good business hotel where rooms are often large enough, all clean and all worked out fine. I stay often to this hotel. The only criticism is the variety of food at breakfast, not ideal for a repeated visitor like me.
