I stayed for 10 nights at the b kobe.as I stayed so long I was upgraded to a larger double room, which is still small. I was on the top floor and despite being in the busy Restaraunt and bar area of kobe I found that it was really quiet overnight. The beds are very firm and pillows are firm,...

The location for this hotel was great - we stayed at a 3-person room but it didn't feel crowded. Would certainly recommend for people who are planning to visit Kobe. It's also very close to many shops and restaurants.

It is small but the ambience, the light, the bed and bathroom is amazing! The breakfast is not japanese but very very good! The front of hotel is a restaurant and looks great! The location is superb especially at night. Lack of windows and space and its draw back. Tip: Fall in line for breakfast early since it is a...

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...

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...

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.
