The property is located at the Port of Kobe. The harbor facing rooms have amazing views, the west harbor view is not really worth the up charge but if you want a harbor peek and a view of Mosaic it’s ok. The area around the hotel is a very popular tourist and local destination. The historic Port of Kobe earthquake museum is adjacent to the hotel, and there are some shops, a Starbucks, and a maritime museum in the shadow of the hotel that provide interesting activity opportunities. There is a free shuttle that operates all day until late night with a published schedule. The shuttle is prompt so review the schedule. The shuttle will pick up and drop off at the Okura and Meriken Park Oriental hotels, and Sannomiya Station. Catch trains or walk to close downtown attractions or walk to Shin-Kobe if you like. Taxi fare from Okura Hotel to Shin-Kobe is about 1400¥, it’s inexpensive and quick. The staff is exceptional! They are the most friendly and helpful staff I’ve ever encountered. Everyone from the doorman to reception, to cleaning staff are are dedicated to your satisfaction. I will always stay at Hotel Okura Kobe when visiting Kobe!
