Kobe Luminous Hotel
Ranked #64 of 117 Hotels / Ryokan in Kobe
Reviewed October 28, 2013

If you prefer soft mattresses, read no further. The bed at the Luminous is like a slab of rock, and the pillows are not so nice either.
Other than that, this is just a standard business hotel: my room was tiny, charmless, indeed featureless, but clean and functional - free WiFi, CNN TV, fridge. Both the reception area and the room could do with a bit of sprucing up.
Service was a bit fumbling, but OK. I asked about a local bus service, but the receptionist neither knew, not cared to find out for me.
As for location, the hotel is 3-4 minutes' walk from Hyogo station, which was extremely convenient for my purpose, but this is not in central Kobe.
All things considered, it's overpriced, and unless you want this particular location, you're better off trying a different hotel.

The services were great, the hotel was clean and comfortable. Thumbs up :-) Because the hotel stuff doesn't really speak English, it can be a little bit tricky...but overall, this is a great place to stay, for leasure or business. I recommend it.
