I booked a "high floor semi-double room with balcony", which is more expensive than a normal "semi-double room" so my room was on 11th floor. However, I later found out that the guest rooms were from 10th to 13th floors. So I suppose 10th or 11th floor won't make any difference if you want a great view. Apart from that,...

Hotel located right on the sea! All rooms are equipped with a terrace where you can diner or just have a small nap. 10 minutes walk from the center of Kobe. Services are warming. Excellent place to stay when you're in Kobe.

We stayed at the Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel for 2 nights with other non-Japanese speakers to attend a wedding. We took the bullet train to Shin-Kobe station, then a taxi to the hotel (there is a hotel shuttle, but it only runs on the weekends). From the outside, the hotel is an architectural beauty. Lobby is large and has...

I would have given the hotel 5 stars if it were closer to the city. However, it is in a beautiful location on the peer. The rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. The staff were friendly and accomodaring. The hotel offers a free shuttle to the JR station which was great. The buffet breakfast was excellent but the room...

I came across this hotel via TripAdvisor and decided to book it. They upgraded me to a room with Harbour view and was nice. The kaiseiki at the Japanese restaurant is worth a try though pricey. That was it. The bed and pillows are of the cheapest quality that I have come across in my years of Travelling. After 1...

If you like a full facilities hotel which have a very nice view of the harbor, this is definitely a good choice in my opinion. Room is quite big for Japan standard and most rooms have nice views depending which side you prefer. Moreover, Japanese Hospitality is always very good. Even though it is not right in the middle of...

We stayed here for 2 nights in the cherry blossom season. The room is cozy and quite. It's good for light sleepers. There is also a balcony in each room to enjoy the view outside. Although the location is a little far from downtown, the shuttle bus comes every 15~20 minutes. It is still convenient for backpackers. The staffs are...
