Kobe Hotels & Accommodations
Cheapest and best places to stay
Hotel La Suite Kobe Harborland
7-2 Hatobacho, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture 650-0042, Japan
Travelers choosing the Kobe Harborland will want to get of at Kobe Station, as the hotel is a little far from Sannomiya and there is no free shuttle.
The Hotel is brilliantly located right in the harbor of Kobe on the water, needless to say the views are wicked, especially of Kobe Tower.
Rooms at the Harborland are notoriously large, which foreign travelers will find rather refreshing as accommodations in Japan are almost always ‘Japanese sized’. The hotel and rooms are very nicely designed in the classic elegance style.
Highlights include the French Restaurant 'Le Coeur' and the Spa (but only for women)
Single Occupant: $350
Double Occupant: $600
Hotel Piena Kobe
4-20-5 Ninomiyacho, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture 651-0093, Japan
Only a thousand feet North of Sannomiya Station, the Piena has a good location and quite a decent price. The rooms are nice, designed in the classic elegance however they are a bit dated and underwhelming, but you can’t complain as the location and price are right. The morning breakfast is decent, with a buffet containing Japanese and Western dishes. The hotel is relatively small and has few dining options so travelers will do best to check out local eateries.
Single Occupant: $90
Double Occupant: $130
Hotel Okura Kobe
2-1 Hatobacho, Chuo-ku, Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture 650-8560, Japan
Travelers will need to continue past Sannomiya, just one station to Motomachi Station, where they will find the Okura one thousand feet south of the station. The hotel is located right on the harbor, literally right next to Kobe Tower.
The Standard and Deluxe guest rooms are rather underwhelming, reminiscent of an older Holiday Inn, but still clean. More attractive berthing can be found with the Precious Floor and Superior Floor.
The hotel has many restaurants and guests continuously rave about how good and international the morning brunch is.
Single Occupant: $130
Double Occupant: $160
Hotel Monterey Kobe
2-11-13 Shimoyamate-dori, Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture 650-0011, Japan
The Monterey Kobe is a turn of the century Italian themed hotel, with a very quaint homey feel, perhaps too quaint for some travelers. The rooms are rather small, especially the Standard single which is a bit ridiculous. The one virtue of the Monterey is its walking distance from Sannomiya Station which can certainly be a deal-breaker.
Single Occupant: $150
Double Occupant: $240
