About this area

Kobe

Located in Kobe, Arima Onsen Motoyu Kosenkaku is in the historical district and near the boardwalk. Arima Hot Springs and Rokkosan Ski Area are worth checking out if an activity is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's natural beauty can explore Mount Rokko and Fruit Flower Park. Check out an event or a game at Hanshin Koshien Stadium, and consider making time for Kidzania Koshien Theme Park, a top attraction not to be missed. Our guests appreciate the ryokan's quiet location.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

Unfortunately we did not have a very good experience and I think our expectations were set high because of the good reviews and the high price. Number one, the staff speaks little to no English. We had the cottage room and the air conditioner did not work very well. The food was not very good. In fact, we decided to cancel our breakfast because it was not worth it to us. Of course the receptionist could not understand us so we ignored the phone calls to our room. We ended up leaving a day early because it was not worth for us to waste a day in Japan here. We explained to the receptionist that we were leaving early, paid for our extra fees for drinks... but again the communication was not there. I liked their onsen but it was unfortunate that there were many loud chinese tourists who did not follow proper manners. It was not relaxing. I wish there was an attendant to make sure guests are following rules. *The two elderly gentlemen at dinner service and bartender were very kind.

Wonderful property. The staff and facilities are great. The Kaiseki Dinner and Breakfast is adequate. But a little on the cheaper side. More vegetables and stuff made in mass quantity before being served to you.
