The Portopia is a massive hotel, replete with a convention center, a small mall, and two wings of rooms. The main tower is about 30 stories, with a restaurant on top. No doubt, if you are looking for a small quirky hotel, this is not the place; but if you are in Kobe on business at a convention (especially one... More

I went to Kobe for a convention and found that I had waited too long to make a hotel reservation. So I was online nearly every day looking for something closer, better. Then the night before my departure a single room at Kobe Portopia opened up for less than $120 -- on the hotel website. I took it. Then the... More

Kobe has many hotels but the Portopia has anything and everything you could ask for including transport to down town and the shinkansen station. Have been to the hotel to visit friends, been to the restaurants and been to events also. Never a 'bum' time, always enjoyed the hotel, the good food, excellent service and the atmosphere.

In Kobe for business and found Portopia ideal as our office was within 5 minutes walk. I had a room in the South wing which is separate from the main hotel and would ask to be in the main building if visiting again. Breakfast was OK but get in early if there are a number of tour buses or you... More

This hotel is just fantastic: rooms are comfortable with a beautiful view on Kobe Habor, beds and toilets are perfect, and the hotel's ground floor is just a great place to be, even just to relax. All this, for a price that's really convenient for an hotel like this! Ok, the position is not the best one in the world,... More

I am presently waiting for a bus from Sannomiya to return to the hotel that is 30 minutes late. The hotel advertises its complimentary shuttle so despite the hassle of going to and from Port Island to stay, we took a chance based on positive reviews of the hotel. (Could have taken Port Liner but that adds ¥1000 each way... More

Apart from the location being on the Port Island and not in the Kobe city this place was wonderful. The room was so spacious, the service top notch and the interior beautiful. The hotel has many restaurants serving various cuisines but we only stayed for one night and didn't get to enjoy all the amenities. There's a huge pool which... More

The Portopia is on an island right next to the convention center in Kobe. Since the area is a bit isolated from the restaurant/bar scene, I would recommend it to convention goers, not sightseers. The rooms are big for a Japanese hotel. Mine in the Southern tower had two large twin beds, a twin sofa bed, desk and chair, and... More
