I stayed here for two nights and the Okura was excellent. Clean, wonderful staff, plush surroundings and a great location near the harbour area of Kobe. The staff are first class and really make you feel welcome. The hotel is in a great location for this area of Kobe and shops, bars and restaurants are in great supply. Breakfast is... More

The hotel itself is a fine establishment with a nice lobby, but the interior of the guest rooms kind of gives away its old age. Despite that, the rooms were well-maintained and equipped with wifi (make sure to request for a room facing the harbor so you can see the stunning view!). Breakfast was good and service was attentive, but... More

This was a lovely surprise as it was booked online at a great price after reading reviews and it totally lived up to the reviews it got. We found the room very comfortable, the service excellent. The in hotel restaurants were worth the splurge but too expensive for everyday. At night we ventured out to the surrounding cafés and had... More

Wrapping up a nearly four week stay at Kobe Okura. The staff is excellent all around. Courteous, attentive, always respectfully smiling and bowing as you pass, and able to provide most anything within moments. They are very attentive to the English language...some speak English very well. The room is very clean, with all the necessary parts for a comfortable stay.... More

Hotel is nicely located in the harbour area and within 5 minutes walk from Minatomotomachi station. Pedestrian access to the hotel is poor and not that obvious - certainly nowhere near as grand as the vehicle access! There is a shuttle bus service between the hotel and Sannomiya and also Shin-Kobe (weekends only). Nevertheless once inside you will find the... More

The location is good. The staff are extremely helpful and polite as per most Japanese hotels. The hotel is a bit dated but that is OK. Some things really annoyed me: 1. Having to wait for breakfast. I turned up at 730 and there were many guests waiting and I was asked to wait too. Since when does a modern... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel Okura and we had a wonderful time and the hotel has great views of Kobe harbour! The check in and bell person were wonderful! The check out was quick and efficient. If we were going to stay in Kobe we would think about staying again.

Back again for a second visit and stayed a week in April this time. Everything is still as wonderful as we remembered. Great location, water view and friendly staff. Shuttle service was definitely a huge plus. Breakfast was good. Enjoyed every moment of it. Thank you for wonderful memories.

If you want to feel like royalty a visit to this Japanese hotel is a must. Ultra polite staff that can't do enough to help you and the hotel was spotlessly clean. Our room overlooked the city and had a good view especially at night with the mountains in the background. The breakfast although a little on the pricey side... More

Pros: - Great view towards the harbour area - Close to Merikan park - Friendly staffs - Music in bathroom woooot! Cons: hotel is a bit far from the "downtown area" which is Sannomiya station. Even though there is free shuttle service,it's every 20 mins or so.
