Rated 4 out of 5 by Horatio Very user friendly staff
We were upgraded to a spectacular room on a top floor with a magnificent view.
The staff in this property are exceptionally service responsible.
The hotel is accessible directly from the last monorail stop from the station.
The dinner buffet is nothing to brag home about but OK.
The people in Kobe are very friendly and it is a lovely town.

A Beautiful location just a few minute train ride to the center of Kobe, the hotel upgraded us to one of the nicest Spg hotel rooms in Japan. The 27 nights we spent in Japan this hotel bye far was the best value. The club lounge is very nice but small and could add more food and drink options, this was of of the few weakness of the hotel the other was the pool. In Japan most of the Spg hotels pool areas are a separate business and usually requires extra payment to enter the pool even as Ambassador level platinum I had to negotiate my pool acces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JL2012 Hidden Treasure in Kansai
This was my first stay 1 night 11-24-15 and of course will certainly be one of my top choice hotel in the Kansai area. The hotel had great easy access from and to Kansai Airport not to mention the transportation was amazingly fast and easy to town. I was very skeptical with some of the reviews thinking the hotel was quite far to go to town and other places. It was easy, simple, and fast to be in Kobe or other parts of Osaka. The hotel itself was modern and beautiful and great staff that spoke English was a big plus. The service was impeccable and prompt and attentive in every way. I will definitely stay here again and have already recommended this hotel to my friends and colleague/ Keep up the great work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by HCAO Brilliant Onsite Onsen
Nice 1 night stay before departing from Kansai the next evening. My 24 approved and room upgraded to large room with obstructed Kobe Bay view.
Private lift access to onsite complimentary onsen from room and the onsen was quite and nice at night open till midnight.
Good breakfast at Ground Floor restaurant and easy access to Kansai Airport and local train station.
Executive Lounge was overcrowded especially during happy hours. All day beverage selections were limited. Do not have much expectation about the snack plate during happy hours. One staff spoke good English while the others did not.
A few fast food restaurants and a convenience store within walking distance. But dinner option was limited due to poor lighting condition outside of hotel. You do not want to walk out there at night.
Overall a present leisure stay. Would probably return if catching another evening flight from Kansai.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Davidchyd Great hotel but rude staff
Everything is great in this hotel. Their breakfast and dinner were fantastic. Booked the Deluxe Twin, the room is very big and neat. Yet, the staff is rude at the check in counter, when I ask for SPG benefits, she just being very rude and deny my requests.
