Imperial Hotel Osaka

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is the most beautiful hotel I’ve stayed in in Osaka. The rooms are HUGE, which is an oddity in Japan. It’s decorated in glamorous high Art Deco style, which I love. It is perfectly and serenely located, if not too easily accessible by train (the station is about a 10minute walk from the lobby). There’s a mall right beside it, which makes things very easy.

I felt so comfortable at the Imperial Hotel I did not want to leave. A great welcome to Japan. We were in room 1904 and enjoyed a view over the city which was especially enjoyable at night when the city lights came up. The decor is timeless, soft, well finished, light and enriched by the wooden fittings. Great in house restaurants (especially enjoyed the sushi/sashimi bar on the 24th floor). The breakfast room is beautifully situated on the ground floor with floor to ceiling windows looking on to the river and the cherry tree lined path which runs beside the river which is great for a morning or evening walk. The hotel is out from the main shopping district but a regular shuttle bus with courteous drivers gets you there and back in about 15 minutes. It stops at the Osaka Station. All staff that we engaged with were courteous, helpful and obliging. Thank you.

We had the pleasure of staying here just one night but really wished we had longer. Having stayed at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, we had high expectations, but actually I think Imperial Osaka was an even more enjoyable stay. It's a older, more traditional hotel where the staff really treat their guests well. From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed as though we were special guests. The rooms are beautiful, large king size and very comfortable bed.Our room overlooked the river and the view was very pleasant indeed. The marble bathroom is beautiful with luxurious towels and lovely well thought of amenities. Breakfast had enough variety for us to enjoy many different kinds of food both western and Japanese. This is a luxurious hotel, well deserved of its reputation and we would definitely stay here again next time we visit Osaka. It's well located and links to the OAP (Osaka Amenity Park) Tower next door offering dining and shopping facilities.

From the moment you walk in you can feel the comfort of this hotel. Reception have reasonable English, very efficient and friendly. Rooms were a good size for a family of 4. Beds nice and big and comfy. Very clean and neat. Located next to AOP plaza so could get a bit too eat with our walking to far. Located between two train stations about 10 min walk. A little outside/ away from down town but still a great location.

We stayed in Imperial Osaka for 5 nights/ 6 days in December 2017 from Christmas Day . We had a great experience . The room was spacious, tidy , nice and good amenities . The housekeeping was excellent . The concierge staff including Emi Shimada, Emi Yasugi, Naoko Arikado were great. The staff were professional and courteous . The turnaround time for any request was extremely quick . The hotel environment was fabulous and the shuttle bus to Osaka station was efficient. The hospitality was great and overall it was a fantastic experience for us which made our Osaka trip a truly enjoyable and memorable one .

Major Con: -GYM IS NOT FREE, COSTS 5400 YEN. -GYM EQUIPMENTS LACKING. -Pool costs 2100 YEN. -Location is inconvenient if you prefer public transport. Pro: -Staff was nice. Conclusion: For a $200-$500 USD hotel your gym should be free if you advertise it as an amenity. We will not return.

I stayed in Imperial Hotel Osaka for 3 nights in Dec with my boyfriend and highly recommended this hotel. First of all, very classy and grand decoration, a mix of western and Japanese culture, attracted tourists and customers all over the world, you will see a mix of people from different countries in this hotel but still well served by staff who communicated well in various languages. Hotel room is big, excellent view from room and bed is very comfortable, I slept very well every night even I'm not very used to sleeping well in new hotel I stayed. Shower and washroom is very well maintained, highlight is they have classical and soft background music which is really relaxing during shower or when you wake up. Very special. Overall an excellent stay here! Oh, not to forget to mention the driver (shuttle bus) is top notch. Friendly, polite, very on time!

Thanks again to the entire staff for the xmas eve organized the 24th of December. Amazing food and drinks provided by an efficient staff. Great location near the castle. Rooms are clean and quiet. I recommend this hotel

Imperial Hotel Osaka lives up to its name. Impeccable service and comfortable rooms. If Ritz-Carlton raves about its comfortable pillows, Imperial Hotel can compete. This is a good hotel if you want a riverside view and away from the tourist areas like Dotonburi and Namba. The have three top notch restaurants including Sushi Kyubei. Reservations are recommended. You can start the morning with a leisurely walk along well-paved pathways along the river and meet many locals out walking their pets too. There are eateries including two lovely cafes for breakfast immediately next to the hotel at OAP Plaza. The hotel runs an efficient shuttle service from the hotel to Osaka station every 15 minutes and vice versa, making it very convenient to reach the city centre. But if you prefer to hangout in the neighbourhood, within a 10-minute walk you will reach Tenjinbashisuji, shopping streets filled with eateries and shops for 5 blocks. A mix of low price mom and pop shops with chainstores. While you see some tourists, you will also see many locals about. Some of these shops only take cash.

My family stayed here for 4 nights. The rooms are huge by Japan standards. Great bathroom. Although the hotel is not located in the shopping area, there is a small adjoining mall where you can get meals. There is a free shuttle to Osaka station every 15 minutes. Very convenient.
