Hotel Okura Kobe is on the waterfront, just over a quarter mile from the Motomachi shopping area.
Score from 533 reviews Excellent
Close proximity to JR station and subway stations. Easily walkable to subway to shin-Kobe station to catch Shinkansin trains, or 3 min walk to JR station to go to downtown Kobe. The hotel itself is in a residential neighborhood so it's very quiet.
Can't think of any.
The hotel was close to the station so easy to find. Staff were helpful and spoke English really well. The room was small but had everything we needed and the toiletries were a high quality.
We were there just before new year so might be exceptional but there wasn't a huge choice of eating places open within close walking distance. But the city centre is 6 mins on the train so no big problem.
Staff wasn´t that friendy, -did not feel like a Guest, more like a Number at the Reception I have been to other Hotels in Japan with great friendly Service as a standard! this wasn´t the case in here.
5 min walk from Hyogo station (6min to Kobe) Coin laundry on site Staff changed us from a twin to a double upon request at checkin Free wifi in the room
It was quite pricey as a business hotel, but not too bad compared to others in Kobe
The hotel's view
No shower cap the whole 4 days
Room & beds are bigger than expected. Very good location near to stations, quite too. Beds a bit old, wouldn't mind to stay again in our next visit!
Good breakfasts. Clean and comfortable rooms.
Not so friendly reception. The lady at the reception desk did not even say 'hello' just requested name at invitation. I received breakfast vouchers only on next day. Next day I needed to argue about breakfasts included in the price (a receptonist was a priori claiming that I need extra pay for breakfasts without even checking it first). As a sum up reception was quite poor.
2 minutes from train station 10 minutes away from the 1st of the temples within a circuit of them lots of shops around and excellent value for the money
Smoking in room is difficult. No evacuation system.
The rooms were exceptional and very clean. We had our own mini fridge and very clean toilet/bathroom/shower with complementary royal jelly shower gels. The best part of this hotel is the view. We were on the 14th floor overlooking the city of Kobe and the beautiful mountains. Free wifi is a lifesaver when travelling and is offered by this hotel. The hotel is right outside Hyogo train station which will take you to all the destinations you could want to go and even Osaka which is only 30 minutes away.
I needed to ring my bank (reverse charge) in England as they had blocked my card. The front staff told me the Hotel could not make or receive international calls. I arranged for my bank to call the Hotel to sort out the blocking of my card. The staff were adamant that they could not receive the call. Well 5 minutes later they did and they had some serious egg on their face for it. Essentially they lied to me to stop me from making an international call which i desperately needed to do. I wasn't very pleased about this. This incident prevents me from rating the hotel as excellent.
Staff were helpful; room was large by Japanese standards. Close to downtown yet quiet walkable neighborhood
Location and clean
This is a really good place to stay. It is near Hyogo station. Standing at Hyogo station, you can see obviously the hotel as a high building with clear neon sign. Therefore, it is really easy to approach the hotel. The staff is very nice and enthusiastic. They also can speak English. The hotel offers bicycle for free and you can return the bicycle at any time, just only deposit 5000 yen and receive cash back after return the bicycle. The facility of the room is great. They have all necessary stuff for bath room, even yukata as sleeping suit, TV, strong wifi, electric kettle, small fridge. It is such a great place to stay with the price under 3000 yen per person per night. So I highly recommend it for everyone.
Nothing to complain :)
Breakfast Buffet Location, Location, Location! Staff Room Size
Some noise from the hall Not a lot of dining options nearby
Great location and friendly staff
Location close to public transportation.
The size of the room. Impatiency of cleaning ladies who have disturbed us several times.
Nice staff, excellent location close to the JR train station, room was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The view from our 14th floor room was stunning. We ended up extending our stay because it was so nice and convenient. Many shops around the area and convenience stores.
Nothing really ( drier in the laundry room didn't work well )
The location close to the train station was helpful.
Good location near to Hyogo station.
Super close to the JR train station, close to some izakayas and restaurants. Clean and cosy.
breakfast is great. also it is a walking distance from the station to the hotel,which is nice for a traveler with heavy load.
