We stayed three nights at this hotel and chose it because of the location. The hotel is pretty old (built in 1989) but it has been well maintained and some renovation is on it's way. The check-in service was very fast and efficient and the staff very friendly. We payed around 150 and for that price we had a nice... More

Sitting right on the water, the location is just a short walk into the downtown area. Views are either water side or mountain side with a view of the town. The lobby is large with a grand open space, reminiscent of a Hilton. The rooms are large and in good condition. There is a large TV, minibar and electric kettle... More

The view is worth 5 stars. Got a room on the 25th floor overlooking Kobe harbour which was amazing. The check in experience was top notch with the reception providing a speedy check in and the porter carrying the bags of the room. The room itself is large by average Japanese standard about 27 sqm - bathroom and bedroom were... More

The rooms are a very good size. I was upgraded to a suite later which was amazing. I did not like the blankets in the regular rooms. The breakfast is decent not amazing. However, the staff is perfect! Very helpful. It is close to harbor land Umnia mall and mosiac which has good restaurants and decent shopping.

Although Hotel Okura is a little old, it is well-looked after. Best of all, the staff are very friendly, helpful and actually know how to smile, naturally. I enjoyed chatting and joking with many of them and they remembered (the following day) what we had talked about ... they really made our stay a pleasant one. We had a room... More

Just a stunning hotel, full stop. Stayed on the top floor, with spectacular night views out over Kobe city. Close to the station (10-min walk), close to the sights and sounds of downtown (15-20 min walk). Room itself was very large, stunning wide windows and view, great bathroom with good size and impressive toiletries (l'Occitane, if you're keeping count). As... More

I stayed in the standard twin room on the 22nd floor. The view was amazing ! The location is little away from main station, but their shuttle bus to Sannomiya station all day. Hotel staff are very nice and helpful. It was nice to walk at Meriken park and explore Motomachi. I recommend this hotel if you like relaxing hotel.

I requested for rooms with the view of the harbour and we were given one, I was very impressed. All staff spoke very good English. The hotel lobby is spacious and the room itself was clean and comfortable. I also like the hotel shuttle bus to Sannomiya.

I loved this hotel, situated right on the see/harbor, close to the Kobe tower. My room was on the 31st floor, overlooking the Kobe Tower, and was very clean, well furbished, and great bathroom amenities.

Booked for 1 night as a temporary stop after our long journey in Kansai area. Service was up to standard and staff speak the best English during our entire stay in Japan and transfer between 4-5 hotels. There is free shuttle every 15 minutes to and from Sannomiya station which is the city center. View was great but the amenities... More
