The Hotel Okura is a magnificent hotel which is periodically, through Expedia, available at a reasonable price. I visit Kobe frequently and have stayed at most of the 4 star and 3+ Star hotels in Kobe and Hotel Okura is my favorite. Indeed, I could see the Okura being rated as 5 stars or 4 ½ stars. The rooms and overall facilities are extremely clean; the hotel is well maintained and the service is superb. In addition, the view from my room on the 17th floor was excellent – Kobe harbor and part of the city. The hotel shares a convenient shuttle bus with another hotel which goes back and forth from the main train/bus station in Kobe – Sanomiya Station. While the bus is a nice extra beware that at some times there are enough people waiting at Sanomiya Station that you have to wait for the next bus. Also, note that another hotel, the Portopia, also has a shuttle bus departing form the same platform, platform 8, and there are separate lines for these two buses which leave from platform 8. As the lines for the Portopia shuttle were longer during my stay in Nov 2014, be sure you are in the correct line.
