"In Port City, business-class hotel at good price"
This hotel seemed more Western-style than most others in Japan.
Stayed here during recent trip traveling most of Japan.
It's in Port City (which either requires bus-provided by hotel service, or Port City Liner metro line-much quicker than bus)
I took the Port City Liner metro to hotel (about 15-20min ride) and then walked to hotel.
It's in a quieter part of city than downtown (near train station).
Great views of port (although when it was daylight, it was Sunday morning-so not too much activity on that day)
Wish I could have stayed here another night, but the mountains are calling-so I must go.

We stayed for 7 nights and found the hotel very comfortable and the views and location great. The design of the hotel on the "Merikan" wharf affords every room a view of Kobe Port, either to the east or west. We enjoyed the bit of luxury, with the room rates booked through Expedia surprisingly good value for the star rating of the hotel. The cost of the restaurants and other facilities at the hotel was more comparable with peer hotels, but we were pleased to eat out most of the time. The rooms were great, our only complaint being that shelf or drawer storage space was very limited - not bad for one to two night stays but we would have liked to unpack more for our full week stay. The courtesy bus to Sannomiya (shared with the nearby but significantly more expensive Okurayama Hotel); we were lucky that our arrival and departure by Shinkansen happened to be on Sundays when the courtesy bus also runs to Shin-Kobe station (which it does only on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays - not sure why it doesn't do so on weekdays).

Arrived to find an innocent looking and rather small
Little lobby off the street....until we were told the lobby is actually on the 17th floor.
Once you step off the elevator, you will be greeted by a wall of glass overlooking Kobe Harbour.
And our stay was just as spectacular all the way including the food.
Only small complaint was the spotty wifi..... But we didn't care. The rooms were
Simply perfect and the staff was attentive.
I'd put this hotel in a class by itself. Not too small of a boutique hotel but not
The too big to be unfriendly and cold.
Great place. 5-stars

"Good, well located hotel hotel but bad bed choice."
Good location 5 min walk to nearest train station, 10 min walk to central Kobe for transport/shopping/restaurants, 15min walk to waterfront area. Our room had good view, over playing field/park with mountains on horizon. Helpful & cheerful staff, good breakfast. Our room was on the small side, but the bed, listed as 'semi double' was barely bigger than a single bed. An 'interesting' time was had trying to fit 2 of us large people on the bed for 4 nights.
