The best place to watch fireworks from the hotel

This hotel is close to the sea and is the closest to Minato Kobe Fireworks Festival. If you're staying in a room facing the sea, you can watch the fireworks from there.

It's like you're inside the sea

As the hotel name suggests, it's located in Meriken Park. The hotel is also shaped like a ship. I recommend the breakfast buffet in the restaurant facing the sea called Santa Monica.

Convenient for sightseeing in Kobe and the fireworks festival

I recommend this hotel if you're going to Kobe for sightseeing and fireworks. You can get good views from the room and enjoy the sea, town and illumination.

An ocean view where you can see fireworks from your room.

This hotel has ocean view rooms and you can watch the fireworks from the balcony! Even if the room is facing the town, they have special seats for watching fireworks during the season so you can be rest assured.

Kobe Potopia Hotel's rooms facing Meriken Park are recommended

There are many hotels around Meriken Park which are close to the festival but it doesn't necessarily mean it's better to see it close. Kobe Potopia Hotel has many rooms where you can see Meriken Park and is the best hotel in Kobe.

You can enjoy Kobe from here

It's a little far from Sannomiya by tram but the hotel itself is luxurious and recommendable. You can enjoy the night views of Kobe. Since it's away from town you can spend your time peacefully.

A convenient hotel for watching the fireworks

You can watch the fireworks from your room and it's a nice inn by the sea so it may suit your needs. The accommodation prices are cheap as well.
