As you roll into the massive driveway of this hotel, you are reminded of the decadence of the 70s where East met West in more 'modern' times. The hotel itself sits by the pier of Kobe, and boasts beautiful views of the ocean and the city depending on your room. The night lights of Harborland and the Kobe port tower... More

Fantastic hotel with superb rooms overlooking a great harbour. The coach for the hotel from the train station started off a quality visit that I did not expect and don't think I paid e nought for. An impeccable driver takes you to a fantastic lobby to be greeted by wonderful staff. Large and very very well fitted out rooms,. Views... More

This hotel is reasonably close to city centre but if you are thinking of shopping or eating in restaurants it's quite a walk (say at least 20 minutes). But if you are driving, they have a carpark next door which can accommodate. Inside, the amenities are good, and rooms are comfortable. Most have views of the port.

My husbsnd and I stayed here during our honeymoon for 2 reasons. It was right next to the pier and it boasted a good restaurant. The room was nothing spectacular. The Japanese komod was fascinating and changes all lives it touches! The view from the room was nice though. The restaurant was excellent. We were served yummy kobe beef and... More

There is a reason to stay at the tallest, pretty grim visually architectural box around! Basically when it is on the waterfront and it it is tall enough to see for miles and miles. The harbor views even half way up are wonderful, and the fact that new commercial / eating / entertainment area of Harborside is 5 minutes walk... More

I've stayed here several times and always found the hotel to deliver everything you would want during a business trip. Location is ideal in the heart of the city and only a short walk from Kobe station. The earthquake memorial just outside the hotel on the harbour is really interesting. Recommend.

You made our first trip to Japan a truly memorable and wonderful experience! Okura provides a great view of the Kobe Harbor. What’s more wonderful is that our room has a perfect view of the Port Tower! The room was clean, and, of course, the hotel staff were polite. We were out almost the entire day for the tours and...
