In this area there is a lot of restaurants, bar shopping center everything. The room price is very economical with the value, there is fully aminity goods as well....

I was there with a group of friends/ colleagues as we were attending a conference we wanted to stay in town near the night life and this hotel looked good on this sight. The slightly upgraded room had a much better bathroom than the cheapest room they have which another member of our group stayed in. We had no complaints...

Jumped of the subway in Kobe and very easily found the hotel near Tokyu Hands. The hotel staff were very friendly, the room was spacious, the bathroom was amazing it was a good size with the best shower we have had here and a toilet which was fully remote controlled - very amusing... it even flushed itself, which isn't a...

This hotel was excellent. It wasn't fancy by any means, but for the price it was well worth it. The staff were very helpful and polite. It is ideally located. It had free internet and laundry. The dryer was in Japanese and difficult to figure out. But how can you complain about free laundry. There wasa small fridge in our...

This was the first of 3 b's that we booked during our trip to Japan and we were not sure what to expect, however we were pleasantly surprised by our experience. The location was about 5 minutes walk from the station as mentioned by other travelers. This made it easier as we had large suitcases with us. The staff were...

Enjoyable stay at clean, conveniently located hotel. Well priced. Free internet. Freshly grounded coffee in foyer 24 hours per day. Perfect hotel for touring around Japan. Catch a bus from Sannomiya bus terminal to Arima (30 minute trip) for 3000Yen return fare to make it a memorable stay.

This was a good hotel and I would definitely recommend this. However, many western style hotels are usually much more expensive than the traditional Japanese hotels. If I ever go back I will probably try the Japanese style hotels (like Toyoko Inn Kobe Sannomiya No 2 based on the reviews in Tripadvisor) even though there was nothing wrong with this...

The only grip I have with the b Kobe is there's no closet whatsoever, as well as the area around the basin collects too much water when I bathe. Otherwise, pretty good hotel, the room is small and cozy (somehow I got a semi-double bed though I'm solo traveller). The location is good as well, and the reception staff speaks...

The b Hotel Kobe is conveniently located about 5 minutes walk from the JR station Sannomiya in Kobe, and right near the subway if you need to catch the train from Shin-Kobe station (only one stop but quite a long walk). The location is great as it's right in the heart of the shops and restaurants, and an easy walk...
