    The general atmosphere and courtesy of the staff was nice. Thank you

    I was surprised that families with baby strollers had to pick the baby carriage up and hand carry down the stairs outside the hotel. Nice excalator going up. Nothing user friendly going down to the outside parking lot area. Unless I missed something. Please let me know.

    The hotel design is really great with transportation within walking distance from the city loop.The hotel is also close to the Kobe Tower.Further to that the hotel is located within walking distance of MOSAIC which has shops, restaurants and entertainment for everyone.The hotel staffs very helpful and friendly.

    The hotel looks like a cruise ship from outside. Balcony was nice and spacious with nice views.

    Breakfast (open buffet) had lots of choices but continental was non existent, not even a slice of cheese. Great if you like seafood but otherwise be warned.

    Simply the best hotel in Kobe for me. There is a large sauna, steam sauna, 15m warm pool and 2 jacuzzis. You pay 1050 yen for the first time then you get a complimentary ticket for the rest of your stay. The view from the pool on the 5th floor is very nice. The internet in the room is high speed wired cable. You can even play online games like WoW. The breakfast selection is great and it is good to get breakfast included while you book your tickets. It is cheaper that way. You have a morning newspaper on the door handle in the morning. The walking distance to Kobe center is around 10-15 minutes. 7-eleven is the only shop chain for ATM cash machines that work in English with VISA cards. There is one 7-eleven around 10 minutes walk from Meriken Park.

    Near the pier and the hotel staffs are generally very friendly and can communicate with English.

    The car parking arrangement was a bit confusing. In terms of the charge and the availability of parking the 1/F and G/F.

    Perfect, japanese standard service, quiet room with balcony. Free shuttle to the city center.

    Delightful hotel on Kobe Harbor, just across from Mosaic shopping center and near Kobe Port Tower. Great views of the city. The property was clean, very pleasant and well-staffed with helpful folks.

    The shuttle bus from the hotel to Hotel Okura, and then Sannomiya Station was a little inconvenient for sampling Kobe's nightlife, but I'm not sure there's anything to be done about that, since Kobe Meriken Park is well off train and subway lines.

    Night view was great.

    Hotel did not have exercize facility. Location was inconvenient from shopping area and train stations. Only expensive breakfast buffet was available....no al la carte menu. Wi-Fi was erratic.

    A great location in the harbor with excellent shuttle service from Sanomya station (center) for free 3x per hour. Excellent and free internet connection in the room. Beautiful view over the harbor. Comfortable beds and silent but effective air conditioner.

    The restaurants in the hotel are relatively expensive.

    Stunning view of the harbour from the room balcony! Staffs are friendly and helpful. Room is clean and relatively spacious. Free Shuttle bus to Sannomiya main station every half hour.

    Could unsettle your Kansai trip plan! Since the view is so good it made you just want to staying in and enjoying icy cold beer instead of going out somewhere.

    The Kobe Meriken is probably the best hotel I have ever experienced, in JApan or outside. THe greatest thing is without a doubt how allnthe staff there made you feel special...especially the concierges. I loved the spacious bedroom with amazing views, the great food at the restaurant..its is a very very big hotel which feels like a special home...the ten days at the Kobe Meriken were the highlights of my month in Japan. Thnakntou for booking it for me at a great rate too !

    Meriken Park Oriental Hotel is a nicely located at kobe port. View from my room is facing Mosaic and the wheel. With the white railing on the balcony, feel like being on the cruise. Rooms are pleasant with bathtub, decent size for a Japanese hotel. Hotel provides free shuttle bus to 三宫,the central area every 20 mins most time of the day, which is very useful.

    The only thing I wish is the hotel staff could speak better English (their service is geniune), though to be fair their English is better than my Japanese.The spa close quite early, but massage available for the room (didn't try)

    I must say I was very impressed by the hospitality, friendliness and honesty of the staff. They were also very accomodating to our needs. On the first day when we arrived, we didn't like the smell in our room but we thought we would just accept it. However, about 10 minutes later I get a call from reception saying that they would show us another room which if we liked we could move to. I was just amazed at the way they took care of us. We of coursed liked the other room and so we moved to the new room. And upon leaving there were 2 matters. For the last night, I had actually booked the room for the night because our flight was at 11.30pm. I didn't do a half day extension because I thought it would still not be enough time for us. However, at check-out which was about 6.45pm, the receptionist was surprised that we were leaving early so they returned us the money for the last night. I thought they had made a mistake but indeed they were returning us the money and I really appreciate them very much for this and God bless them more abundantly for this gesture. The other thing was that I had left my handphone in the room on the last day too at check-out. I had totally forgot about it but the housekeeping found it and immediately informed reception and they passed it to me when I was sorting our the issue on the pay back for the last night. Overall, I was very pleased with my stay in this hotel and would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting Kobe. It is indeed one of the best hotels with the best staff. Cheers!! :-)

    There was nothing I didn't like about this hotel. It is the best hotel.
