Hotel is nicely located in the harbour area and within 5 minutes walk from Minatomotomachi station. Pedestrian access to the hotel is poor and not that obvious - certainly nowhere near as grand as the vehicle access! There is a shuttle bus service between the hotel and Sannomiya and also Shin-Kobe (weekends only).
Nevertheless once inside you will find the usual high standard you would expect from Okura, staff were very polite and helpful. Our room was a good size with all the essentials and plenty of space for clothes, cases etc - something a lot of Japanese hotels fail to provide. We also had good views over harbourland, Port Tower etc. We stayed room only but like a lot of reviewers have said the breakfast queue did appear long and slow.
Overall a good stay in a nice hotel run by helpful and friendly staff.
