It's conveniently located to Kobe Airport. It's an independent hotel with local capital according to the staff. It looks onto the port and sea although the view isn't nothing particular. The interior is clean and nice, there are about five restaurants of different themes, the staff are well trained and effectual. Space is rather large by the Japanese standard and... More

My family and I stayed in the hotel for two nights in Apr this year. The hotel and the rooms looked new and tidy. It is close to the Kobe airport and you can actually see the planes taking off. The room we had was quite big for a Japan hotel, probably because it is not in the city centre.... More

Trip to Kobe was for a 2-day conference and the choice of hotel was up to the principals. In terms of convenience, the hotel was definitely the best choice given the proximity to the conference venue. The room was big, but was kind of dated. While there was a shuttle provided to and from the City Center, I opted to... More

Don't worry about the but. Just a minor inconvenience. Portopia is 15 minutes out of downtown. However, this is offset by regular and punctual shuttle bus service to 10pm. As I was there on a Saturday, they have additional services every 12 minutes instead of the normal 20 minutes. Rooms are larger than average Japanese hotel, clean and very comfortable.... More

i lived here two nights. This venue does not near convenience stores and no shop near hotel. We should walk more than 10 minutes if you want to go to convenience stores. It is good that it has wifi in my room, not just lobby. My room also can see the swimming pool. The view is good. Besides, i prefer... More

Attended a conference at the adjacent conference centre. Very convenient hotel to stay in. Also had a complimentary coach service to the train station. Room is of a decent size and beds comfortable. Breakfast at restaurant near the top of the hotel came with a great view. Overall good place to stay in.
