It is in the centre of the city so there are many places to visit in walking distance. We arrived before the check in time but they let us check in with no extra fee and they were absolutely nice and kind, very heplful all of them every time. They let us check in early without charge which we appreciated immensely after such a long flight. The beds were very comfortable and we had a lovely view of the port from our room.Housekeeping was top notch, including replenishing everything everyday we were there. I was allowed to borrow a DVD player and iphone charger for free. We will surely revisit this hotel when we go to Kobe again.
