The hotel is located right above the metro station and is super easy to gain access to anywhere we wanted to be in Kobe. The Herb Gardens is also right next to the hotel. It's a lovely experience to walk from the hotel to the port or other places, as the hotel is centrally located in many popular tourist destinations. The staff members there were so welcoming and engaging and we really appreciated that. In addition to a reduced price compared with the normal rate, we were lucky to be upgraded to a superior room: very spacious and comfortable, on the 25th floor with a splendid view across the city. Very good hotel with perfect gym and pool next to train station. Great place to stay for business and pleasure.
