Check In

Check in was smooth except there was no car park available on site.  Had to park the car outside and go up to second floor where the lobby is located to check in.  We were told the car park is a few blocks away and it is public.  Once we parked the car, we will validate and pay at the hotel instead.  It wasn’t cheap at all, it was around 1500 jpy, which was more expensive than car parks around the area.  There was a lady who spoke fluent English, near to native speaker who was every helpful regarding about the car park

We were also told there is free drinks from 3pm to 11pm everyday at the restaurant.

Verdict

I was satisfied with Kobe Motomachi Tokyu REI Hotel in general.  It did everything as it stated on their website.  It is at central location, with the nearest station at Motomachi, China town is right next door, lots of shopping in the area.  Daimaru is opposite, with Starbucks being right beside it.  Easy walking distance to everywhere, cannot beat the location.

  Rooms was simple yet immaculate, being more spacious than most hotel rooms in Japan.  Bed was comfortable and pillow wasn’t hard.  There was extra pillows in the wardrobe.  There was even an air purifier in the room which was in the room which seems to be standard for all hotels in Japan now.  Disposable slippers were provided, however there were no small bottles of bathroom amenities in the bathroom, only big bottles for sharing which isn’t too hygenic for me.  Toto toilet is a standard now for japan’s bathroom, the only thing i would complain is how small the bathroom is and it is slightly outdated. Rooms were quiet, and I did not hear any noise in the morning from other visitors or cleaners.

 This 3 star hotel is clean, convenient location, and reasonable price. Great for a budget hotel

Would I go back again? Yes, I have already
