There is shuttle bus service to Sannomiya station and JR Kobe station to the hotel, Merikan park oriental hotel. The bus ride only takes 5 to 10 minutes. Its also within walking distance from Motomachi, China... More

Had an opportunity to stay in this hotel as part of a technical conference that was organized here. The hotel is located very close to city center and has good shuttle buses that operate every 20 minutes, so its very easy to commute, The rooms that I stayed in were pleasantly very large (much more than I would ever want)....

I stayed here for 3 nights in March, 2014 while in Kobe for business. My hotel room had a fantastic view of the harbour that couldn't be beat. The room could have definitely used some updating, but it was very comfortable.

I am a big fan of this hotel, so I often use the hotel and hotel restaurant with my family. You can expect warm and refined services at this hotel and also delicious cuisine with a spectacular view. I like French toast and whole wheat toast with paste blended butter, honey and coconut powder at cafe restaurant for breakfast.

I've stayed here now about four times over the past year and a half and think this is now my favorite place to stay in Kansai (Western Japan). The over-all service at the front desk, concierge, greeter, bell hops, and certainly restaurants is what attracts me the most. With very few exceptions, the staff seem well-trained in hospitality and will... More

Having stayed at mostly 3 and 4 stars hotels during our Japanese trips, I had surprisingly found the Okura Kobe to be very reasonable in its asking prices and so booked for a 2 nights stay here - requesting for the Ferris Wheel view, check in at 2pm and windows that open for fresh air - true enough, all of...

Located in the harbour area around 15 walk from the main stations the Hotel Okura is definitely recommended. A little old but very comfortable and large room sizes (unheard of in Japan) at very reasonable rates. Staff are extremely attentive and rooms immaculately clean. If you are staying in Kobe I would recommend this place.
