A much nicer hotel than you would expect from the price. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the staff were kind and efficient. The laundry room was fairly busy, so be prepared to go back a few times if you want to do laundry here.
All in all ok, just a bit pricey for services relative to other hotels in the area, though it is right next to the port and has an onsen/spa inside. The only unpleasant experience was the hotels free shuttle driver, who quite clearly did not like our non-japanese selves. He ignored us, even though we addressed him in Japanese in polite form mind you, and was going to leave without us (but with the Japanese families he called by name) had we not insisted he show us the list that we were on. Rude for our European standards, and extremely rude and disrespectful for Japanese standards. Unfortunately they only had smoking rooms left, and there was the vague old cigarette smell (not fantastically masked but ok considering). The room we got was a little small, as was the bathroom (knees knock the door when sitting). Air conditioning worked perfectly. The Onsen/spa is not free (¥500) unless you pay for a traditional Japanese room. Breakfast was good (and included) and served on the top floor (13th). Staff is friendly, not used to catering to non-japanese though so bring a phrase book or internet. They have a lot of welcoming staff... Seriously! This morning came down and there were 6 people with smiles standing behind two small desks at the entrance. …
Conveniently located, though very close to some roads making it noisy at times. Wifi in the room, onsen, gym and laundry facilities all easy to use and 3 restaurants. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was big for Japan.
I spent four nights here doing work at the Kawasaki shipyard. The hotel is very clean and efficient, the rooms in good small (this is Japan) but clean and well appointed. The breakfast buffet on the second floor is good, but the sit-down western breakfast on the 13th floor is better. Lunch buffet is good but not outstanding. Dinner of Kobe Beef (15,000 yen) on the 13th floor was excellent. Easy walk to the subway, Visit the Kobe Port Tower and Maritime Museum and Kawasaki World. Take the City Bus loop from the base of the Kobe Tower for a nice hour tour of town. I took the Bay Shuttle from and to Kansai airport and the Portliner from Kobe to the Kobe Airport. A good week at a good hotel.
The Port Tower Kobe is located in a prime position near to Mosaic shopping and Kobe Port. The location is excellent and a convenience store is a couple of minutes walk away. Beyond location there were many disappointments from this very overpriced hotel. Firstly, the bed: horrible. The worst I've ever slept on. The hotel needs to change mattresses asap - I could not get even a half decent night's sleep on this. Second, general cleanliness: not up to scratch. Dirty floors and bathrooms, outdated rooms. The hotel is in need of a major renovation. Finally, noise... our room while it did have a decent view from the window, you can hear vehicle noise all night as well as noise from the corridors. Won't be back, very bad experience.
