. 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,...

Hotel located right on the sea! All rooms are equipped with a terrace where you can diner or just have a small nap. 10 minutes walk from the center of Kobe. Services are warming. Excellent place to stay when you're in Kobe.

We stayed at the Kobe Meriken Park Oriental Hotel for 2 nights with other non-Japanese speakers to attend a wedding. We took the bullet train to Shin-Kobe station, then a taxi to the hotel (there is a hotel shuttle, but it only runs on the weekends). From the outside, the hotel is an architectural beauty. Lobby is large and has...
