“Outdated hotel on a good location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

First impression when entering the hotel is better than the impression of the room, location is very good, just next to the station, check in and check out is done quickly, room is small and outdated, the bathroom is outdated too and was not clean, breakfast was ok, a range of products but all in small portions, so missing food or waiting for food can be possible

If you want to do a leap in the past, this hotel is for you. It should really be renovated, starting from furnitures and refreshed (due a strange smell).
Bathroom is all in plastic like in the cruise boat (but in very cheap ones). Price is a little high for what you get,

Only pros: close to the station, internet free (with ethernet cable provided) and very good glass acustic isolation of the windows (you are on the main street and you hear nothing)

Been to Kobe few times, and have always stayed at this Hotel.

The hotel is conveniently located near big shopping centers and near the entertainment belt.

The bus station (Sannomiya)is only opposite the Hotel and costs 1800 yen one way. The timing of buses is like clockwork.
Strange though, you can get tickets from Sannomiya to Kansai airport at 1700 yen, from the shops nearby the station, instead of the ticketing counters.

The Lobby is not grand, but homely.
There is a restaurant near the lobby catering to mostly hotel guest during their buffet breakfast. Coffee is wonderful, but food requires a change in menu at least. If you have taken the buffet few years ago, they remains as what you had seen it.
In the lobby, there are few computers you can go online using the slot machine.
Certain floors have convenient vending machines for the midnight hunger pangs.
Room is rather small compared to overseas hotel of the same grade and price, however, this is Japan, so everything is expensive. Room though is sparkling clean and well insulated from outside noise.
Bathroom looks like portable plastic cubicles, but serves their purpose nonethless.

Do not recommend for those who intend to while away the whole day in the rooms, as practically there is nothing to do and the programs on TV are not at all interesting.

My husband and I stayed one night in this hotel. The room gave us a very good impression. It was clean and nice. It provided all amenities we need. The size was not as small as those we stayed in Tokyo or Osaka. There was large variety of food in the breakfast that would give you a good start of the day.
The hotel is just about 3 minutes walk from the JR Kobe station. It's also opposite to the bus station that goes to Arima spa area. Good location...
We would like to return to the hotel if we visit Kobe again!
