5 star rating for location: option of walking from central Sannomiya through the SOGO Sannomiya Center or take the train/subway to Motomachi. There are a bunch of convenient stores, Daimaru (huge dept store), Starbucks and Chinatown literally steps away from the hotel. 5 star rating for rooms/amenities: very modern and clean hotel. Nice shiseido shampoo, conditioner, soaps. Twin rooms are...

Situated on the entrance to Nakinmachi (Kobe Chinatown), the hotel is middle way and accessible to Sannomiya and Harborland. In fact we walked from Sannomiya station to the hotel as the weather was nice. Unlike other boutique hotels that I stayed in Japan, the rooms we had in Tokyu REI is large enough to fit 3 big luggage, 2 Adults...

No complaints! Absolutely wonderful stay here! Hotel is located at Kobe central, excellent location, few minutes walking distance from Motomachi JR station. Sannomiya shopping street or Kobe Chinatown just very close to the hotel. Wifi signal is strong, front desk staff is helpful and friendly. Finally, I must say they do very well, the room is super clean and comfortable,...

The hotel was so clean in the room and salon space. The hotel are near Motomachi station where are many shopping stores and restaurants. It was so convenient for business and sightseeing. The fee was not expensive. It's good hotel, thank you.

I visit Kobe a few times a year and have stayed in various hotels,but this one is now top of my list. As a single traveler I've found that some Japanese hotel's single rooms are the size of a broom closet-however my room here is very comfortable. The bathroom is excellent..the shower has horizontal jets as well as the overhead,so...

The room size is decent, good even for couple with 2 kids in a twin room. The location is superb, very near to Sannomiya (10-15min walking distances) However since I am using a stroller, travelling with a baby and 6 years, I use the subway to Kyukyoryuchi-Daimarumae Station and use elavator exit 1, the hotel is just across the Daimaru...

I simple cannot understand the reviews that are here and booking.com. This is an 8.7 in Booking.com, which generally has good level of ratings. First the rooms are small at 17m and 22m. If you are a student used to dorm living, then this might be a fancy dorm room, but by North American standards, this room is unacceptable. This...

Stayed here during honeymoon trip in complete Eastside op Japan & must say this was best of all: super friendly English speaking stafff - free drinks & very clean modern rooms.

During my stay, the front desk ladies were very helpful. I came back from dinner late with my brother (10pm). Earlier that day I realized that I left my watch at Arima Onsen. I didn't want to make a trip out there without making sure that they had my watch. Because I am not able to speak Japanese, I requested...

Hotel lobby not on ground floor and entrance is small, need to pay a bit attention, but it is easy to find as it is opposite Daimaru, the big shopping mall. The lobby is cosy.
