I stayed here in April 2016. This hotel has some 'interesting decor' it kind of looks like it's trying to be an italuan villa in Japan. Despite this, it's in a great location very near the shopping area of Sannomiya right next to Ikuta temple. There is also a metro station nearby which is very handy. The rooms were clean...

The hotel is in a very good location - near many restaurants and shops, yet it is around the corner from the Ikuta Shrine so it is also quiet and far from the busy street. The service is excellent and the rooms are spacious by Japanese standards. Very strong wifi and we connected quickly each time we entered our room....

Only a short walk from Sannomiya station, the Osaka airports bus stop and downtown shopping district makes this a very convenient place to stay in Kobe. Being in a lively area with hundreds of restaurants in within a few minutes walk is also a bonus. Travelling alone -my single room was small as you would expect in Japan,but it had...

The location of this hotel was perfect for us, 5 minutes from Sannomiya JR station, and close to the waterfalls and cable car. It felt in the heart of a great restaurant area. The hotel has the feel of an old (in a good way- with style) European hotel, and the rooms are ample, with very helpful staff. The only...

I'm not sure what to think or write about the Hotel Monterey Kobe. It's a funny little hotel in many ways. I'm not knocking it, it's just a little unusual! First off if I was staying here in Germany or Spain, I'd be raving about its Old World charm - but in Japan that old world charm is on the...

The hotel is within the City and is walking distance to restaurants, shopping centers, onsen and other beautiful spots in Kobe! As you ride in the elevator, you feel like entering into a time capsule due to its not-so-ordinary "floor-indicator" at the ground floor. Staff are very good. Wifi is not good.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Monterey Kobe offers a glimpse into the architecture and atmosphere of medieval-era Italy. The hotel recreates the Romanesque character of a Northern Italian castle through its use of flagstones and arched colonnades. We invite you to rest in the comfortable sofas in the lobby area to cure your initial travel weariness. Then take a stroll through the courtyard where you can wander through the colonnades to the sound of flowing water from the fountains, helping to calm your spirit and evoke sentimental feelings of nostalgia. ... more   less
