Overall Hotel Okura Kobe was excellent compared with other comparable Hotels. The quality of foods and service of the restaurant(Japanese) and breakfast was impressive. After staying in the popular comparable hotel, your hotel was excellent in the difficult time and busy season. Thanks, I enjoyed staying in your hotel in my hometown Kobe.

6/10 Good

Great Hotel & Location, but…
I absolutely loved the hotel… but one caviar prevented me to have a perfect stay. The room was spacious, great view. Great location at Port area. BUT I had selected it because of the amazing outdoor pool! It’s super hot and humid in Kobe during the summer. Not only they didn’t allow me to use the pool, but - even willing to pay for it (yes, sauna & gym are not free), I WAS NOT ALLOWED ON POOL, SAUNA or GYM because I have some tattoos. I know it’s an issue in Japan, but also that the hotel should adapt to current days and review it’s policies. Or should be upfront on their reservation and make it clear from the beginning. I was very disappointed.
Hotel is conveniently located at Meriken Park
Their breakfast buffet is amazing!

2/10 Poor

My stay at Hotel Okura Kobe was nothing less than a nightmare. The hotel services were especially underwhelming. All we wanted was to use the hotel washing machine in the basement as according to the established manual and protocol set by the hotel. We had to wait more than 3 hours in the evening for a phone call that never came because there had been a customer who either refused to or just simply forgot about taking their finished laundry back up to their room. The next day when it was finally our turn, the hotel gave me (a non-Japanese speaker) to work out the machine on my own when the manual clearly stated that the hotel staff would accompany us to the machine and guide us through the steps. Overall, I think the Kobe branch of Okura needs a serious wakeup call if they want to maintain the level of respect and stature that their chain of hotels purports to deserve.
