Just across from Motomachi Station, and just a few minutes walk from China town, the location couldn't be better. We came by train and found the place very easily. We checked in easily after midnight, the staff was friendly and accommodating even though we were so late. The room itself was quite small, as expected. Unfortunately it appeared that the...

Directly opposite Motomachi station and next to Chinatown. The room is standard size in Japanese context but bathroom is a bit too small. There's bad smell in the room and air-con is not working well. Complained to the front desk but nothing is being done. Not sure if there is a communication breakdown as they only speak minimal English. Breakfast...

The room is small, quite well furnished, nothing special, unopenable window, therefore bad smell in the room. The location is OK, but I expect it closer to Shin Kobe station, it is next to Chinatown and in front of Motomachi station, but approximately 20 minutes from Kobe main station. You can find more information about this area on my blog....

Standard Japanese hotel, rooms sizes are okay. Small bathrooms. Haven't tried the breakfast. Many restaurants along this street and across. Convenience stores are very near too. Very close to a shopping district and train lines. Excellent Location, and the price is just right!

Was in Kobe for business, hotel if located close to Sanomiya satation and all transport hub, extremely convenient. Like in most Japanese hotels, room is small but convenient, still comes with desk and wifi to work without problem. Spotless clean. Only limitation: breakfast is not great, both in choice and taste.

Travelled alone, staying for one night. The location was fabulous. Right opposite of Motomachi station. Can't get wrong. Those who wants to be a budget traveller, choose this rather than near Sannomiya station to save $. Coffee place is attached to the hotel. Also some other restaurant eg mc Donald, curry house, gyudon shop, convenience store and so on. Although...

I would suggest the Riu Yucatan to everyone. The service and staff are great. I can't say enough about the quality of service and food! Everyone you encounter is extremely friendly and helpful. Fantastic all around!!!!

Received free upgrade upon arrival to the Hotel. The size of the rooms given is far bigger from any other ordinary rooms available in Japan. You'll be happy with the location of the hotel since it is only a walking distance to Meriken Park or Kobe's China Town plus near the main JR Station. For me, the hotel is one...

Kobe Plaza Hotel is not within the Japanese Railways (JR line): If you're on the super-express, you will be arriving at Shin-Kobe, and you need to change to Kobe station, then change for Motomachi stop. The best is to take the cab for just over 1,000yen from the train station to Kobe Plaza. Motomachi has an ugly, tacky Chinatown, but...

Service is great but the receptionist can't speak English! They upgraded our room because the room I booked wasn't ready yet(great). Bad things is that the Internet isn't stable and they don't provide wifi(sad thing).
