3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Stayed there for 3 nights for business. It's an average hotel in need of a renovation: -Once you enter the hotel, there's that lobby feeling that it transported you back in the 80's. -room was simple and the design also looked in need for a change -one thing that disappointed me was there was no complimentary bottles of water. So... More

A warm welcome to customer service. Spacious room, a little old design with clear views even over the city and mountains. A shuttle service to the appreciable Kobe Sannomiya station and makes good service. Near the harbor and Chinatown I visited Kobe in walking and you can spend a pleasant time.

Very nice luxury hotel with free shuttle bus that goes 3times every hour every day to Sannomiya station. However if you do not spak Japanese it is very difficult to get understod and so getting information, direction is basically impossible. To use the pool or gym you have o pay an extra €18 every time you use it and not... More

This review is valid for foreigners, I imagine Japanese travelers will be less sensitive to the pain points. The hotel is well located with great views, but that is about it on positive. The rooms are old and equipped with antiquated systems, well maintained and clean but you feel in the 80s. The breakfast is nightmarish, as the main room... More

Located by the Kobe Bay, Okura is one of the few larger hotels in Kobe city. Most hotels in Kobe downtown (near Sanomiya station) is relatively small, so I sometimes have difficulty finding a good hotel room in Kobe downtown on Saturdays. It is about 10 minutes walk from the old settlement area and Daimaru, but the route is not... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night while we checked out Kobe on a recent holiday in Japan. The hotel itself is very nice and the staff are just excellent. The rooms are spacious by Japanese standards with a large comfy bed and bathroom but most importantly, we had a great view of the port of Kobe. Unfortunately, all... More

We stayed in Hotel Okura Kobe for two nights to explore Kobe and Himeiji, which can be easily accessed by train. The hotel is in a great location at the harbor with its attractions and a short walk or free shuttle bus ride to the city. While the hotel seems a bit dated, everything is functional and the hotel has... More

Room is small yet furnished to comfort, with an awesome view through out the day. Its a modern Japanese interior. Location for the hotel is good to enjoy port harbor. Buffet breakfast was good. It can be counted as luxury stay due to the price charged, every worth of it. Recommended for short stay and beautiful view.

The location is great but you can only access the hotel by car. Access for people who like to walk is shabby as is the entire look and feel. Facilities are all there but feel like Moscow in the 70s. Paying for breakfast is okay but charging for drinking waters or using the pool (1500 yen!!) is just weird. Harbor... More

The hotel is well located near the habour of the city. Walking distance to some malls and China town. There are some real cool hipster shops and food and beverage offerings around. The check in was very smooth and the luggage was already in the room when we arrived back to check in at 3pm. As it is a trip... More
