At 112 metres in height, the Portopia Hotel dominates the skyline of Port Island, a man-made island in Kobe Bay.
Built in 1981 and designed by Nikken Sekkei, the rooms in the 30-storey Portopia Hotel either have expansive views over Osaka Bay, or over Kobe city with Rokko Mountain behind.
Among Portopia's facilities are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, gym, tennis courts, and 13 restaurants. The hotel has extensive conference facilities and hosts many International conferences, including recently some meetings of the G8 Summit held in 2008 in Japan.
Convenient for Kansai International Airport as the high-speed ferry connecting Port Island with KIX is nearby.
The Portopia Hotel employs a full-time English teacher for staff training.
The Portopia Hotel is situated next to Shimin Hiroba Station of the Portliner. The hotel has free shuttles from Shin Kobe Station, Sannomiya Station, and other points in Kobe.
