10/10 Exceptional

Staffs were very friendly and helpful. My friend lost her wallet and they helped us contact the police even though it was close to midnight. The hotel in overall was shiny clean and in walking distance from almost all famous tourist attractions in Kobe city, the closest being the China Town. Totally recommend!

Value for money stay
It was very nice stay with clean room and good free breakfast. Only down point is no bottled drinking water apart from that I would recommend this place as it's very near to main shopping street and within 10mins of walking distance from main station and Meriken Park
