Arima View Hotel

They have a variety of onsen, which has made the experience more interesting. Their food for both dinner and breakfast was good.

4/5 Good

Good onsen.

Went there on Sunday for a 2 day stay. The hotel's public spa was way too crowded. So we only used the hotel's private spa which was good, much less crowed, but without an outdoor pool. It has a steam sauna room though. Room was spacious with a view. Dinner was kaiseki and served in our room. The first night's kaiseki dinner was disappointing. It was great to look at but lacked flavor. The Kobe beef was over cooked and smeared with too much sauce. Totally destroyed it. However, they redeemed themselves with a wonderful kaiseki the second night. Earned them an extra star. I researched transportation prior to going there but got confusing information. Once I got there, I found 2 easy routes. Go to Sannomiya station, take bus at bus stop M4, and you'll find yourself in Arimaonsen. However, those buses don't run frequently. Alternatively, take the subway to arimaonsen from sannomiya station. This route require transfers, but the transfers are simple, involving just walking across the platform to another train. No chance of getting lost.

Cons: It has only one elevator to the lobby. During checkout time, there's a long line.

Location: Nearby places are mostly for tourists. Since it is relatively close to Kobe, I'll go to Kobe during the day.

5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

We met nice and helpful staff in reception and restaurant. Our package includes half-board. Dinner was so-so, and I like the breakfast more. It was just not flexible in the way that we must make a call as to get the hotel to pick us up from station. We ended up taking taxi even though it's only 2 mins ride given the steep slope. Overall, my friend and I both like the hotel :)

5/5 Excellent

Nice dinner and great staff

Stayed during the New Year holidays. The staff were all polite and accommodating. Our room was a basic, small tatami room. The hotel has a spa resort with gold, silver, and outside baths (roten). The spa is open to public, but if you prefer not to use it, you have a choice to use their hote-guest-only baths. You can lend pretty yukatas. We expected a buffet dinner, which I normally do not prefer, but it was a full-course kaiseki dinner, starting with a welcome wine. It came with beautiful assorted appetizers, sashimi plate, two hot pots, tempuras, individually cooked rice with crab meat, and dessert (and some more dishes in between). Breakfast was a buffet, but it wasn't too crowded. I stayed at the Arima Grand Hotel several times, but as the hotel is bigger, their buffet was way too crowded and too busy. Overall, we had a nice stay.

Pros: Kaiseki dinner and very nice staff

Cons: More bath choices, such as bubble bath, cold bath, and herbal bath. Thicker futons.

Location: Easy 5-minute walk to the stores and restaurants

Nice dinner

I expected a buffet dinner which I don't really care for but it was a full Kaiseki course dinner. The service was excellent, too. I'd like to use this hotel again.
