Let me start off with all the usual compliments. Good price and great location. Breakfast was good. The room was small but I was expecting this. What I was not expecting was the unusually very warm room and the air-con in the room when turn on only pumped out even hotter air! Also the window could not be opened to...

It was a great hotel, given our budget. Staff were a bit business-like, but that's alright. I'd prefer that over fake warmth. Room was clean, properly serviced, and beds and toilets were super comfortable. Kobe city was also nice. Herbal garden is a must see, we also went on a short cruise which was quite nice.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Room is new and clean. Well designed and spacious toilet. Room is a bit tight for 3 pax. Breakfast spread is good. Walking distance to station and shops. Will stay again!

The B is represents a new breed of hotels in Japan having low cost, decent accommodation and free breakfast. Based on good experience of another Th b, the Ochanomizu Tokyo, I was expected scimitar quality. The reception staff is quite bureaucratic and make clear no early check inn( even if there is a available room ) is not allowed. The...

Room was nice enough, however over priced. In every other hotel I have stayed in they will let you print documents (boarding passes) at reception, no such luck here, very strict policy which makes no sense. Unhelpful to say the least....

The B Kobe is conveniently located in Kitano-cho. It is near many restaurants, bars, convenience stores, boutiques and drugstores. A 24-hour Don Quixote is right beside it. The Hanshin, Hankyu and JR Transit lines are all within a five-minute walk, as is the Sannomiya shopping district. The neighborhood is quiet during the day but comes alive at night. The staff...

Great location if you can find the right exit. The nearest subway exit is W3. This hotel is located right in Sannomiya where all the action is. It's a nice and clean boutique hotel. B Kobe has got one of the tiniest rooms. There's barely enough space to open our luggages and no wardrobe to speak of. Only a bar...

We visited Kobe and stayed at B Kobe before reading good reviews about B Kobe. Located in Kobe-Sannomiya (5 minutes walk from Sannomiya station with direct access to JR) which is not downtown Kobe but Kobe-Sannomiya is where all the actions and food (yes Kobe beef) are. B Kobe is the best hotel we stayed during our 12 days trip...

The location for this hotel was great - we stayed at a 3-person room but it didn't feel crowded. Would certainly recommend for people who are planning to visit Kobe. It's also very close to many shops and restaurants.
