The hotel is next to the harbor. You can see the ship/ boat in and out of the harbor. The staffs were very friendly. Even though the room was a little smaller but very comfortable. The breakfast was very delicious.

staff are super polite and helpful, good location, breakfast is also pretty good, and parking isn't expensive at 1000 yen per night. the rooms are clean and roomy and have pretty good views - especially on the harbour side - and the showers are nice and powerful. definitely will be staying here again when I'm back in Kobe.

We stayed in a Japanese / Western room with our two boisterous boys age 10 and 7 years. They loved the tatami mat rooms and their futon beds. It was wonderful. The staff could not have been more helpful, welcoming and accommodating.

This hotel is quite big and quiet. It's a little out of the way from downtown, but they have a shuttle bus which is a 5 minute ride to the main station.

I managed to get a good deal at Okura on very short notice after a sleepless night at another hotel due to the very warm room and we were so happy with Hotel Okura. The service was great and room was fantastic. All of us slept well in this bigger than average Japan hotel room. No complaints.

The hotel is nicely maintain, and rooms considered spacious. Facilities are great, and located within walking distance from the shopping districts and train stations. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Internet speed is fantastic. Solid hotel to put up if you are in Kobe.

Impeccable service is the norm in Japan, and the Okura does not disappoint. The porters take your bags and do not expect any gratuity, though I tried to give them one. I was able to check-in early with no fee, and the front desk followed up my enquiry about whether my Shinkansen tickets had arrived, just like they said they...

They offer quite a big space compared to the other hotels in Japan. Higher floors strongly recommended for the habour view!! (Just expensive though) Restaurants, shopping malls, Anpang museum (for children), etc. are all in walking distance.
