I stayed here for one night due to last minute plan changes and it was lovely. Staff were super friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfy, and it's in the best location in town. Beautiful view of the city from my room.

No it's not your traditional five-star hotel, but did you pay a traditional five-star price?

No you can't check in early, but are you happy you don't have to check out until 12pm?

Great hotel, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, and would stay longer next time.

Kobe is known for its beef. After a lovely dinner of Kobe beef at the restaurant Pier at this hotel, we went up to the 14F View Bar. Just as the name suggests, it has a great view. The lights are all animated with a sweet story to tell. It overlooks the shopping area called Mosaic and the Kobe Port Tower. Not to give away the story, if happens to be in that area, definitely worth going. They have a cover charge whether you drink or not. But then the view is worth it.

The overall experience was just ok, the hotel is quite old, needs renovation. But the location is very good, nice view and lots of shops and restaurants at walking distance. Not to mention you got Starbucks right in front of you with very nice view over the sea.

Stayed for 2 nights in Dec 2017, got upgraded to a corner room.

PROS
# good service throughout despite the size of hotel
# buffet breakfast was very good - selections cover Japanese, western, and Chinese.
# ocean view and spacious balcony
# room fixtures were generally well-maintained

CONS
# there's no safe deposit box in the room
# there's no free bottled water in the room, however you can drink from the tap or boil tap water in the electric kettle.
# minimum 15 min walk to the nearest convenience store. There are a few vending machines by the main road, but that's also about 5 min walk from hotel.

Room Tip: Room 919 (corner room) gives you a good view of the Ferris wheel

great hotel to stay at with its theme being like a ship but its a little out of the way, although a free shuttle is provided to the subway which is very good , super friendly staff and the room was nice but the wind howled through our windows , luckily we were to knackered to let it bother us . Eating ion the hotel is way to expensive so a walk of about 1km is required to get a decent feed
