This hotel atmosphere takes you back to how Kobe must once must have been. Oriental hotel being part of its history. It is a very warm and charming hotel. Located in walking distance to main train station, restaurant and shopping area. Breakfast buffet was excellent!

I have stayed with this hotel a few times. All the room I stayed was quite spacious and comfortable and therefore I always go back when I go to Kobe. Last time, I was offered the upgrade to the junior suite. I especially liked the bathtub with window and double vanity area. The room has a touch of Oriental design...

This is a wonderful hotel. The rooms are very spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. My room had a large closet area, sofa, table and desk. The shower was awesome. Breakfast was great and a good location near shopping and restaurants. Highly recommend.

Everything about this hotel is "World Class". I stayed here 10 nights a couple of weeks ago. This boutique hotel is centrally located, near shopping, restaurants, and a 15 minute walk to the train station. The reception area is on the 17th floor, where you have a spectacular view of the city with a backdrop of the mountains. The rooms...

The section of Kobe in which this hotel is located used to be the Foreign Settlements Area ceded to many Western countries in the nineteenth century. Ironically, the area still has some of this 'foreign' feel about it as there are many high fashion shops with distinctly Western connections (e.g Brooks Brothers !). The hotel is well located part way...

Dear Kerry K, Thank you for your most detailed and flattering review! We could not have said it any better! As you mentioned, the Foreign Settlement area (Kyukyoryuchi) has retained its Western feel throughout the years. As a matter of fact, Kobe Port just celebrated its 150 year anniversary last week! Our doors first opened 2 short years later and...

​In Kobe for just one night for work, I regretted not having more time to stay at this very mellow, interesting hotel which strives to be as cool as the Ace Hotels and luckily does not entirely succeed!

We stayed in Kobe just one night, but this hotel is one reason I want to go back. Not only is it a great location with beautiful views, but the staff were amazingly helpful and seemed to think about our needs before we even thought about them. Rooms were also luxurious and there's a gym I didn't have a chance...
