This traditional ryokan is handy to Sannomiya station (but far enough from the train noise) in a pleasant neighbourhood. You’ll get a friendly welcome and a tatami mat room.
Trouble is, this place is getting a bit run down so was the least pleasant of all the places we stayed in more than two weeks in Japan. Rooms aren’t clean, with hairs on the floor and cobwebs on the walls. The toilet wasn’t very well cleaned, and the odour crystals (perhaps used as a consequence) were strong smelling and permeated into the corridor. Bathroom facilities are adequate but rather dated, and the kitchen is essentially a cupboard with a refrigerator and hot water dispenser in.
There will be better places than this in Kobe, and the friendly welcome doesn’t quite make up for the tired facilities.More
