Stayed at the South wing. The room was spacious with a balcony overlooking the Kobe Harbor. Clean comfortable room with plenty of space in the bathroom area. Restaurants were great but would have loved something with a lighter menu after having a great Kobe beef lunch. Lobby is great but was noisy at times. May be due to peak time... More

A bit pricey, but this is one of the higher standard hotels. Beautiful interior of the lounge, but my room really looked like it hasn't been redecorated since the hotel was built and the furniture was a tiny bit scuffed. Nonetheless, the room was very spacious, quiet, had a big window, air conditioning worked perfectly, the internet in the room... More

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
