Kobe city

Posted Dec 13, 2016
Good location lots of eateries, though the area gets pretty shabby at ni2, many prostitutes on the surrounding streets. An awesome kobe beef steak house just 5 minutes walking from hotel, wil definitely recommend and will go back.

Nice Hotel in a small side street. Mainly in use for weddings while we were there. Rear entrance gives access to the Ikusa Shrine. No bar and small italian style restaurant.

Unique hotel right in the middle of things

Posted Sep 5, 2016
Pros: Location was perfect. Very unique atmosphere.
Cons: No complaints!
Location: Fantastic restaurants wherever you look as well, as all the other amenities of a Japanese city. Convenient train station.
The Hotel Monterey Kobe has an absolutely unique atmosphere from the second you walk in - it really does feel like you're in an Italian castle right in the middle of Kobe. I found this atmosphere very appealing and comfortable, especially in the guest rooms and front desk area, but of course if you're looking for a more traditional Japanese experience, you may want to look elsewhere. My room was small by US standards but a comfortable medium by Japanese standards, and I had a nice view of the city without any noise. As far as location goes, the hotel is in Sannomiya, Kobe's main area for food and nightlife. This was great for me, since food is the main reason I came to Kobe, and it was super convenient to have all the restaurants I wanted to go to 5 minutes away from the hotel. Sannomiya Station connects to most other lines in Kobe, including the Hanshin line to Osaka, and it's about a 20 minute walk to Shin-Kobe Station, where the Shinkansen is located (though of course if you're weighed down by luggage you may prefer to take the train 1 stop from Sannomiya).

Dear Mr. Jose, Thank you for staying with us. I appriciate you wonderful comment about our hotel. As you mentioned, our hotel combines antique furniture with a natural brown and beige color scheme, exuding an ambience of midieval Italy. It is very uniqe hotel, we think. Also, our hotel is convenient to go shopping, sightseeing to Osaka or Himeji. If you have chance to visit Kobe again, please stay with us. Best Regards,

Charming hotel near to main station

Posted Jul 3, 2016
Charming hotel near the main train station. Next to Ikuta shrine and within walking distance to the beautiful herb gardens and breathtaking Nunobiki falls. Lots of eateries around. There's even a chapel in the hotel!

Great Location.

Posted Jan 4, 2016
The Monterey Hotel is positioned in a great location in the hub of Sannomiya. Trains, restaurants and shops all on your door step. Superb location to stay and explore Kobe. Also within easy distance to Osaka and Kyoto on either the express train or if you are in a real hurry you can catch the Shinkansen from Shin-Kobe station which is one stop up the line. I would highly recommend the Monterey Hotel along with the city of Kobe.

Good position

Posted Oct 21, 2015
Pros: clean. Well appointed room, Westerners need to be aware that Japanese double beds are very small
Location: Close to one of the main streets so Kobe. Lots of restaurants, bars etc. short walk to subway and railway
Good room, everything necessary in a room. Quiet, no outside noise. Very clean and staff although they have limited English tried hard to help when we needed it.
