“A good place to stay for a day in Kobe”
Reviewed June 17, 2009

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 Japanese eatables) in the room fare (approx. 7000 Yen per night). Rooms are very clean, made in Japanese style and have a TV.

Address – see the photo below. You WILL need to show the Japanese writing to the taxi driver (in fact that is true for most taxis in Japan)

How to reach –
1) There is a direct train from Osaka Kansai airport to Osaka Shinkansen (Bullet train) station (1 hour).
2) Take a Shinkansen from Shin-Osaka to Shin-Kobe station (1 hour)
3) 10 minutes walk from Shin-Kobe, though if coming first time, it is better to take a taxi as the hotel is in a small lane off the main road.

Note - Many inter-city trains do not run from 10 pm to 6 am. So if arriving late at night at Osaka Kansai, there is a helpful information desk at Kansai airport where English is spoken and they will let you know where you can stay. An airport hotel is located close ot Kansai airport.

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 as a relatively cheap no-frills option.

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.
