TravelPod Member Reviewsthe b Kobe
We stayed in the b Kobe for one night and stayed in twin and single rooms. The hotel rooms are sized similar to most budget hotels in Japan - not the most spacious but sufficient for a night's sleep. For the price we paid, we found the hotel to be of great value. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the hotel was located in the center of town (within walking distance to all the shopping streets and the harbor front). The only slight setbacks were that there was no wifi in the rooms (it was however offered complimentary in the lobby along with freshly brewed coffee) and the bathrooms appeared a little dated. I would stay there again.

... we sailed on for a short stop at Saipan, which was one of
the prettiest little islands so far. We did a bus trip, so far the
only “bus” trip we have done with the ship. Some of our fellow
cruisers are very bossie and rude to the local people, one of our
fellow travelers suggested that maybe they should have stayed home.
As we sailed toward Kobe, we knew that the typhoon that was south of
us had taken a turn to the north west and was ...
... game was played. Each machine looked like anime on steroids, except none of the characters seemed to make any sense. As I sat down at a machine a crazy wizard character appeared, then a chef, then a samurai...I couldn't follow. The attendant came and gave us a laminated sheet with game directions in English, but it didn't help much. The basis of the game was using one hand to gently turn a knob which would send little silver balls flying up into the game board, where ...
