This past weekend I stayed a night at Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel. The room provided a great view of the ocean and harbour. The night view was especially stunning. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly and the food at breakfast was great! The hotel is also conveniently located within walking distance of a large variety...

This is a perfect hotel for traveller who want to relax. From great and modern interior to the location, it deserves five stars! I love its location the most, though not convenient to the station it is just walks away from the Umie shopping mall. And it has beautiful sea view. Don't worry about the approach to Sannomiya station, the...

. The Meriken Park Oriental Hotel is shaped like a huge ship and is a well-known and very stylish local landmark. Note that check-in times are strict, so you might find it difficult to get your room before 3 o’clock (although I believe you can leave your luggage and go out to explore). Members of staff were polite, helpful and...

Very good resort hotel with balcony (every room with balcony facing different directions) facing the sea. Nearby (walking distance - 10 minutes) shopping mall with a wheel and lots of restaurants. Not in the downtown area (5-10 minutes by car). Recommended to drive and there were plenty of parking spaces at the hotel.

The rooms at the Meriken are definitely nice and bigger than the typical Japanese hotel room. It has quite the fantastic view that you can see from the balcony and has an interesting and fun layout. The hotel employees are very polite and will help you at a moments notice. The English was also quite well spoken so international English...

The Harborland area where the hotel is located is very attractive and lively, especially on weekends. However, it’s quite a hike from the hotel to the downtown area and other attractions. The hotel offers a shuttle bus to the main downtown area (and Shin-Kobe on weekends only), but we found this was packed whenever we used it – make sure...

There is a complementary shuttle bus from Sanomiya station but the access to the hotel may be a disadvantage. However, the location is in the middle of the bay area with a great view of Kobe area. The room does not have much space but did not have any trouble.

I booked a "high floor semi-double room with balcony", which is more expensive than a normal "semi-double room" so my room was on 11th floor. However, I later found out that the guest rooms were from 10th to 13th floors. So I suppose 10th or 11th floor won't make any difference if you want a great view. Apart from that,...
