Very clean and comfort hotel
Hotel room was very clean and comfort. Staff mebers were also very kind and nice. Breakfast was very delicious. The location was little bit far from Sanomiya station (Kobe center area). However there was portliner which took us to Sannomiya station within 10 minutes.

Perfect location for Memorial hall concert
I picked this hotel as I wanted somewhere to stay after a concert at the nearby Kobe World Memorial hall. It was so close to the venue that I could walk there without needing a coat (even in January!). I arrived a few hours before the official check in time and the receptionist kindly let me have the room early as it was ready. This would be normal in Europe, but in Japan hotels tend to be very strict with check in times so was much appreciated. The hotel can be reached using the private Portliner railway line (Shimin Hiroba stop). For this you can buy a day pass which works out cheaper if you intend to travel back and forth during the day. My room was a bit of a time warp from which I would guess the hotel was built in the 70's or 80's and not really touched since. Everything was clean and the bed was comfortable, but it could do with some refurbishment (the carpet was stained and the shower looked very old fashioned). That said this was the cheapest hotel on my trip to Japan and actually an absolute bargain. I would happily stay here again and it's perfect for the concert hall and exhibition centre. The area around the hotel is very peaceful and quiet with a convenience store across the street (which I used for breakfast). It seems like a residential or business district, but it only takes a few minutes to reach the mainland on the Portliner so you could use the hotel as a base for exploring other districts of Kobe.
