Where to stay in Kobe: Best areas for travelers
- Kobe City Centre: Port of Kobe Earthquake Memorial and Higashi Yuenchi Park offer a calming respite from the fast pace of the city. If you're eager to take your time discovering them, base yourself at the R&B Hotel Kobe Motomachi or the Hotel Trusty Kobe Kyukyoryuchi. The Kobe Motomachi Tokyu REI Hotel is another place to consider. This neighborhood is a winner if you're eager to experience nature without traveling far.
- Sannomiya: It doesn't matter whether you're just overnighting or having an extended stay, this neighborhood has loads of things to do to fill in your time. No idea where to start? Ikuta Shrine, Higashi Yuenchi Park and Shin-Kobe Trail are awesome choices. So are the Kobe Sannomiya Tokyu REI Hotel, the APA Hotel Kobe-Sannomiya and the BRENZA HOTEL.
- Akashi: If you're the kind of adventurer whose social media feed is filled with nature photos, this area might interest you. Reserve a room at the Akashi Luminous Hotel, the Business Hotel Akashiya Ryokan Bekkan or the Hotel Castle Plaza. That way, you'll be within reach of Akashi Park — and there early enough to take some great pics!
- Hyogo: You'll have lots of things to cross off your bucket list, like Home's Stadium Kobe, if you stay here. Hop into bed at the HOTEL LiVEMAX Kobe, the Hotel Sunroute Sopra Kobe Annesso or the Hotel Clio Kobe -Adults Only and get some decent shut-eye. You'll need all your energy to tour around this area's other top sights like Kobe Water Science Museum and Nofuku Temple.
- Nishinomiya: If you're in the mood to spend time with Mother Nature, this is the place to be. Enjoy some downtime at Nishinomiya Kitayama Botanical Garden then take in the scenery at Horaikyo. Wondering where to spend your nights in this part of town? We recommend the HOTEL U's Kouroen, the Lucky Sun and the Hotel Ritz Koshien.
