Score from 357 reviews Very good
Right next to sannomiya station, very easy for metro. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. Free laundry, just pay for detergent - was great for me in middle of a long trip. Lovely clean modern bathroom with nice shiseido soap etc. Comfy bed. Mini fridge for storing own drinks. Good wifi. Quiet in rooms at night despite its central location and big hotel.
No safety deposit box in room - biggest letdown for such a modern hotel! Small laundry room - someone removed all my laundry from dryer while still wet and left it at reception! Hot corridors that smelt of cigarette smoke despite me being on a non smoking floor - rooms were fine though.
lovely clean room
Awesome location, new hotel, and great amenities. We definitely plan on staying in another one of their hotels the next time we're in Tokyo or Kobe.
Our only complaint is that the mattress was pretty hard and uncomfortable to sleep on. We've had this problem several times at Western-style hotels in Japan and other parts of Asia, but this was one of the least comfortable mattresses we've had in the last two years of traveling. Everything else at the hotel was excellent.
Suggestion: map to show the direction from JR & other public transportation station to hotel.
It was quiet and we slept well
The room was cramped and one particular staff member was quite abrupt.
Very god Location in the center of Kobe. all Attraktionen within Wilkinghege distance. Close to JR Station Friendly and helpful staff.
Near train station and a short walk to most sights, free coffee and helpful staff who speak perfect english
The beds are horrible, we were glad we only stayed one night
Waking up several time during the night beacuse of loud people near the elevator.
Helpful staff who could speak good English. The room and beds were larger than usual and I was especially impressed by the toilet - this might be true for most toilets in Japan but it was fully automated! Wi-fi worked as advertised and it was rather fast. No sign-in hassle, just request for the password at the reception.
Location - it's definitely NOT a 3 minute walk from JR Sannomiya. Expect a 8-10 minute walk from the JR station as you have to cross a couple of streets along the way. However, it's still within the Sannomiya area so that counts for something.
Amazing - two massive beds! And super cheap and the best bathroom with seat in the shower!!! Really lovely place, helpful staff and very very clean! Perfect location - super close to one of the smaller Kobe train stations, and great for seeing everything in wonderful Kobe!
The room was spacious and the beds were quite big. The design was quite nice and modern, with power outlets located near the beds and a small but efficient bathroom. The hotel is located within a ten-minute walk of the Sannomiya station, which is a major interchange and very convenient.
The location was in a fairly seedy part of the area with a lot of karaoke bars and hostesses waiting along the road. They didn't bother us, but it was a little uncomfortable walking there at night.
Everything. Wonderful experience
Good location close to restaurants, shopping and walking distance to the port.
The walls are quite thin!! The hotel was heavily booked while we were there (Golden Week public holidays) and we were woken several times during the night by crying babies, loud conversations & even laughter from nearby rooms.
Location is good. Nice, modern furnishings, it's a shame about the poor ventilation system.
Be warned! This hotel has no temperature control in the rooms. Even though it says it has A/C, it is at the whim of the hotel staff. One system is used for both heat and A/C, and you can only turn on and off the fan. Very misleading. You have to call the front desk to complain if your room is hot, and then they will turn on the A/C. And turn it to heat again if/when someone says they are cold, without any warning, except the hot air coming in if you've left the fan on. Windows do not open, so rooms are hot and stuffy. Or cold as ice, so you have to keep getting up to turn on and off the fan when the A/C is on. Beds are as hard as can be; like sleeping on the bare floor.
We loved the B Kobe Hotel, it was fresh, clean, modern, close to everything within walking distance. Great food, shops and nightlife. The staff were friendly and helpful.
The beds had quite a hard mattress, so depends on whether you prefer hard or soft bed.
Room well appointed , comfortable size, bathroom , bright and very functional , would recommend you .
Suggest extra English TV Station
Lack of good English Bad restaurant and breakfast
The location of the hotel is great, it's close to shopping, restaurants and nightlife of Sannomiya. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and the hotel was extremely child friendly. Our baby was given a toy when we arrived and a cot and special linen was provided for her. We loved the design of the bathroom, very fresh and modern facilities.
Hotel location is very close to subway exit. There are lots of local and international restaurant nearby. A shrine or Night-life street are just a block away. Tokyu Hands and Don Quijote are at the corner. Hotel Italian buffet breakfast is OK. You can find nice breakfast at reasonable price around the hotel. One is a cafe on the corner next to Tokyu Hand called Excelsior cafe. The other one is just opposite the hotel but I haven't tried. The hotel can help you on luggage delivery service so you can travel light to the next destination. The service provider is JP Post. If you are familiar with Yamato Transportation, TA - Q BIN service, you only just drop you luggage at 7-Eleven next to hotel The accommodation is very good and clean. The room size seems bigger than usual Japanese hotel.
Floor of the bath not clean.
Helpful, friendly staff. Very nice atmosphere.
Excellent location, modern room, large room compared to standard Japanese hotel rooms. Nice and spacious bathroom. Very clean. Good beds. Quiet. The people at the reception speak enough English to communicate. Early-check-in granted for 2000 JPY extra (11:30 instead of 15:00 check-in).
Not so cheap. No clear upfrond procedure for early check-in.
The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms nice. Rooms are small but the service was excellent.
The location is very good, 8 mins walk from the JR Sannomiya station, from Shin-Kobe it is 25 mins walk.
We did not like the bathroom, it was like in a aircraft.
