ORIENTAL HOTEL KOBE

Much loved by various celebrities, the Oriental Hotel has inspired a multitude of anecdotes. A reconstruction of the original hotel destroyed in the Great Hanshin Earthquake, it boasts certain unifying concepts: it is Oriental, although not tied to any particular nation, and it possesses an enduring sense of authenticity. While the facilities are new, it is not jarring, and the hotel's design boasts calm elegance matched with fresh individuality.
