I have stayed here three times now and continue to be impressed. If you want to visit Kyoto and have a rail pass, consider staying here for far less than the Kyoto hotels and take the Shinkansen into Kyoto in about 30 min.

I have stayed at the B Kobe three times in the past year and highly recommend it. Very convenient, being close to restaraunts and all kinds of shops. Staff are friendly and the rooms are fresh and clean. Keep up the good work.
We stayed for 7 nights and found the hotel very comfortable and the views and location great. The design of the hotel on the "Merikan" wharf affords every room a view of Kobe Port, either to the east or west. We enjoyed the bit of luxury, with the room rates booked through Expedia surprisingly good value for the star rating of the hotel. The cost of the restaurants and other facilities at the hotel was more comparable with peer hotels, but we were pleased to eat out most of the time. The rooms were great, our only complaint being that shelf or drawer storage space was very limited - not bad for one to two night stays but we would have liked to unpack more for our full week stay. The courtesy bus to Sannomiya (shared with the nearby but significantly more expensive Okurayama Hotel); we were lucky that our arrival and departure by Shinkansen happened to be on Sundays when the courtesy bus also runs to Shin-Kobe station (which it does only on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays - not sure why it doesn't do so on weekdays).

Excellent location in the center part of Kobe. 5-10 minutes walk to train stations. Only thing to be careful with the area is that lots of bars and clubs around the blocks and by closing time you may see some drunks and bar fights, but safe location nonetheless. Very unique theme inside the hotel.
