the b kobe, Kobe
Great location, nice hotel
Nice hotel just a coup,e blocks from the train station. It is right in the middle of the action of downtown Kobe making it a perfect place for our one night in the city. Tons of restaurants and shops surrounding the hotel. Nice room although we had hoped for a king rather than the two doubles we got. Great bathroom with nice walk-in shower. Free cappuccino in the lobby. Front desk was helpful in making dinner reservations.

We enjoyed the b Hotel – excellent staff, good location not far from the main JR station, lots of eating places nearby as well as in the hotel. The bathroom was a most unusual layout, a long rectangle rather than square but the clever design worked extremely well. Like many big city hotels in Japan, the rooms are generally small but this one worked well though, as usual with most hotels, there is a stand for only one case. A little inconvenient for couples with two+ cases. Breakfast was adequate but we were happy with it. Internet speed was fast and the seat at the desk was height adjustable (most unusual and thoughtful) so our backs were ok after sessions on the computer. The only problem we had, apart from finding the hotel at about 8pm after a long flight and getting wrong instructions from locals (unusual), was getting our cases into the hotel reception. Two check-in and two cabin bags had to be taken up one floor up on the escalator. I tripped! Later a very helpful staff member showed us the service elevator which we used on checkout and which you need to ask help with as it is locked off for security reasons.

Great location
Staying with my parent-in-law, my wife and my 2 kids. We booked 3 rooms and the hotel kindly arranged the rooms located on the same floor and next to each other. The beds were big and comfortable, only the size of the rooms was a bit small, but considered its location which is in the heart of Kobe city, it is not easy finding alternative which can’t provide the same standard and convenience
