Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great experience at the oval club I must say, amazing customer service, delicious food and stunning view. We just had a small issue with the bathroom sink which was clogged but other than that our stay was good.

Positioned slap bang in the middle of what seems to be a major re-claimed island in Osaka Bay, directly opposite Kobe City, affording great views and fabulous sunset potential (see later), it is a very large uber modern high-rise (31 Floors) bed factory. Unfortunately it is also surrounded by docks, cargo cranes, container cranes, ferries, a University Campus, a new train/tram line and station, and a plethora of new roads, bridges and over & under-passes, so one is also in a Concrete Jungle, albeit a clean one - Japan is (and how). Getting into the City was either by Taxi, Train or their own Courtesy Bus. Taxis were expensive. Trains a pain to figure out (for non-Japanese speaking Tourists - us), so their Free Courtesy Bus proved really useful, but it did not run late for Returnees from Dinners in the City. We had 3 night at this Hotel, so used the Service a lot, & can also confirm it is after a while, a somewhat repetitive and tiresome journey. The novelty did not last. Hotel itself is very large indeed - 740+ Rooms with awesome views, if you are on the City-side, 6/7 Restaurants, 4/5 Bars and a Gym with pool - 'Members Only Club', so unless you paid a hefty Daily Fee - Off Limits. Shame that was not apparent from their web site. Breakfast was terrific, if at the wrong time, a lot crowded, in their Dining Room on the top floor, facing the City, so fabulous views. This is a superb sundowners spot to enjoy a cocktail or whatever at the end of a long day of sight seeing, except it isn't. It is closed to all but Diners until after the sun has gone down. The evening that I looked, there were 4 in the Restaurant with a capacity of 50/60. The bar could have been solid with Paying Guests, but wasn't. Good and comfortable night's sleep, but the place lacks a personal touch and ambience. It is a bit sterile and functional, so Very Good, but it really could be Excellent. There's nothing much out here except the Hotel, so it should give Guests a compelling reason to stay and spend their time and money there. We didn't.

If you are attending a conference at the huge exhibition/congress centre, this is the most convenient hotel with hundreds of rooms spread over two wings. Our room on the 21st floor was a very comfortably large room with a view towards the Kobe airport. The bed was excellent excellent for a great sleep. The usual facilities of the room and the bathroom were perfect. The kamino bathrobes were very smart and pleasant. The hotels has about 6 or 7 restaurants, including two of them at 2nd and 30th floor, serving buffet breakfast, costing about 25 Euros. Every 20-minutes the free shuttle bus to-and-from Shin-Kobe and Sannomiya railway stations is a great service. Fully enjoyed our 4-night stay.

Went in for a weekend stay. Very nice hotel with excellent facilities and large rooms. Proximity to Kobe airport and Shinkansen is very good. Helpful staff and try to take care of all your needs to the best of their abilities possible. Train station right outside the hotel that connects you to Sonnomiya - which actually is the center of Kobe

The free Wi-Fi in the room is sooo slow that it is better to use your phone network. I had pointed this out last year but no improvement. The hotel also DOES NOT have Wi-Fi in the 30th floor restaurant nor in their Banquet rooms. Unthinkable, as I am attending a 600+ attendee meeting for 4 days. Good thing the event I am attending will move to Tokyo next year.

Service is good. Had a shuttle that runs until 2130 to town center. If later than that, the mono rail is right beside the hotel. Slightly out of town but it’s more peaceful and less crowded. It’s obviously a convention center use to catering large contingents.

We had just finished a 16 day tour of northern Japan by Train and needed a Hotel to stay on our last night before returning to Australia. We looked on Hotel.com and the price was very attactive so we booked , The room was Huge for Japanese Standards and the Hotel Very Majestic set on a huge block of land , All was perfect for our last day , And free shuttle bus back to the main train station . BUT do not eat in the hotel if you on a budget like us , No were else to eat unless you go to the Kobe City on the train . The meals were $$$$ , Having a meal with Drinks for 2 cost more then double the room rate which was only $120A.

The hotel is not located at the city center, but it is only 10 minutes by train (the hotel is right next to a train station) or 20 minutes by shuttle bus provided by the hotel to and from the city center. It is also quite close to the Kobe airport, so if you arrive from either the Kobe Airport or Kansai, it is actually quite convenience. You can start explore Kobe after you drop your bags in the hotel upon arrival from the airports. The price of the hotel may be a little high but the room size is larger than many others in the city. It also comes with swimming pool and gym; but the outdoor pool is closed in September already when it is still quite warm. The indoor pool is very small so I only used it once. As the hotel is located at an island outside the city; you can actually get a pretty nice view either of the city or the harbor from your room.

Probably the best I have stayed in Kobe. Rooms are large and I got a room with a view of the Kobe Port. Staff was courteous. Best part is you get a free shuttle from Hotel to Sannomiya Station. Saves you a lot of money when travelling.

We stayed for one week at Hotel Portopia. If you need to stay near the convention centre then this is a good choice. Our room was a double room in the South tower. The room was older in decor but it was spacious and what we liked most was that it had a balcony over looking the water. We spent time outside on the balcony which was nice. Our friend was in the North tower which was more modern in decor but the the room was much smaller and had no balcony. Our breakfast was included and we enjoyed the buffet and lovely view from the 30th floor of the north tower. The hotel has a frequent shuttle bus into Kobe that was very convenient. This is important because there is little to do around the hotel and nowhere to eat other than the hotel restaurants - there are many to choose from at the hotel. Kobe has a lot of great restaurants. Chinatown was really fun and had great street food. Yun Yun dumplings. Yum Yum😊
