Good 6.0
No customer service
OK rooms in an OK location, but staff was not very service minded. They understood very little English and would not help me with even simple things when asked. It seems like at this place, customer is always wrong.

Good hotel, horrible staff
The hotel itself was very nice. There was a origami crane on the bed next to the sleeping garment which I thought was a great way to show their hospitality but it doesn’t really fit with the mood of the hotel. The staff were unpleasant. I had a bad experience with a new female staff who kept asking me to repeat everything. She couldn’t find my reservation and failed to smile. The supervisor or senior came behind her and muttered what to do without any apologies for the long wait. The new staff made a hotel member card without my consent and ignored my way of trying to lighten up the mood because she was frantically typing away on the computer making no eye contact whatsoever. I wrote my Japanese address in English and the staff said, your address isn’t in Japan?” Without even looking at the address which I thought was rude. All that time at the reception counter with the other customers looking at me was a very unpleasant experience and I hope they will try to improve their services in the future. If not for the name of the hotel and great time I had in Kobe I would probably not recommend this hotel to any of my colleagues or clients.

Reliable quality at apa hotels.
The room was small but comfortable, with all the facilities usually found at an APA hotel. Good location close to Sannomiya Station. Lots of places to eat around and within walking distance of Chinatown and even the harbour area. The buffet breakfast was tasty. Overall, a very enjoyable stay.

A Great Place to Stay in Kobe
The hotel is at an excellent location, about a 5-minute walk from the Sannomiya Station. Check-in was quick and easy, and there were staff who were able to speak English as well, which was appreciated. While the room was small, that wasn't an issue, as I was there for business, and spent very little time there. The room did though have a large-screen tv, which was a nice touch. Everything was clean. The best part about this hotel was that there was a Seattle's Best Coffee shop on the first floor, accessible from both inside and outside the hotel, with a patio, so one could enjoy a very good coffee before starting the day. I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone passing through Kobe. Great price, great location, great accommodation!
