Good value in Kobe
Very pleasant surprise. Very good location, clean, quiet, good service. It would have beeb nice if the restaurant would have stayed open after 2:00 PM. Far better value than anything you'd find in a US city at that price!

Kobe Sannomiya Union Hotel, Kobe
Unimpressed!Had bad start with reception;upon arrival told breakfast 'not included in my resv. Wrong! Had printed confirmation to prove that.Next,told there was problem with wi-fi in room? Other guest verified,2 days w/o wi-fi for him. Desk said 'maybe tomorrow. It was corrected. All this on arriv. and w/bad attitude. For a 19 story biz-oriented hotel, only a small lobby area with very little seating. One hotel computer avail. and placed in a recessed curved niche in wall, no elbow room! Carpet in room quite stained. Things did get a bit better, I blame desk attitude on 1 person. As weather was cool and rainy, negative aspects of hotel made things worse. Did find a great Japanese kind of 'diner 'down the street on corner. Good food, cheap, great music, U.S.A. 'oldies!
