Beautiful and perfect. The hotel offers the service and the facilities thar every traveller wishes. And the staff well represents the kindness and hospitality of the country. At night the quietness of the bay is lulled by the multucolored lights and their changing reflexion on the still waters. Magic is the word.

The hotel is very very clean , the staff is very friendly, but No gym, no business center and the staff doesn't speak English fluently . To be fair not many hotels have staff speaking Japanese in the States either. Lol. The hotel is situated at the Meriken park and it was a delightful stay ( 5 nights ) with...

Excellent view (with 4 different sea view rooms you can make the reservation) and very nice room (with balcony). There is shuttle bus service from 8am-11pm to the JR station. The only issue is no convenient store and soda machine.

I stayed at the Kobe Oriental Meriken Park over night while waiting to embark on a cruise. If you are in Kobe for a short stay this location could only be described as perfect. There are many points of beauty and interest around the hotel as well as shops and restaurants. Staying at this location enables you to fit a...

Though the hotel is not new, it is clean and tidy. The view of the room is nice. Guests can walk to nearby Mosaic Mall for shopping and dining. However, there is no convenient shops nearby. Moreover, the English standard of the staff should improve. They often don't understand guests questions and they keep communicating in Japanese among themselves, ignore...

We spent 3 nights here prior to a cruise.....excellent location, great views and nice staff but way too many negatives to compensate. Great location....a 1000 yen taxi ride or a 20 minute wlk to central shopping area and a shopping centre with lots of restaurants about a 5 minute walk away. We had harbour view room which was great...large, bright...

Checked in around 10pm after a long flight from ATL to TYO and express train to Kobe. Was met outside immediately by bellman who quickly took our bags. Checkin was only a few minutes and bell girl took us to our harbor facing room. Very spacious with a floor to ceiling wall of windows overlooking the harbor. Huge balcony with...

Fantastic hotel. Great price, amazing service. View from the room was outstanding. The location is close enough to the center but not in the crazyness so good to relax too. Really cool to watch what's happening in the harbor from the room

Don't expect any luxury but it is clean, a little outdated but it has great views of the city. It feels like a cruise ship, rooms were modest but clean and bigger than most rooms in Japan, bedding was not that great though. I would say its a 3 star with amazing views.
