Imperial Hotel Osaka

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Had the pleasure of staying in this hotel which sits on the river and had time to stroll out to park area and visit the vendors etc along with a walk down the river bank inside park to enjoy the park. Hotel staff are excellent like all their hotels as they treat you very well.

Fast, efficient check-in. Large, comfortable room. Lots of amenities, including a jogging map! Great hot water and climate control. Everything worked, including the power driven draperies. I loved the location next to the river with access to walking paths. The view of the cherry blossoms in early April was lovely.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The rooms are spacious and bathrooms are of decent size. We had room overlooking the road and garden side. I understand from friends, their rooms overlooking the river were having great sight. The garden in the hotel is v good and well maintained although of small size. The night lighting is beautiful and creates a v good ambiance. The staff is cooperative and helpful in nature. The shortcomings of breakfast buffet is tried to be made up, to some extent, by the helpful staff.

We stayed for five nights as a family of four (2 adults 2 teenagers) in two rooms - one standard and one superior. Superior room is a larger room and larger bathroom, which feels significantly more spacious. Very friendly and helpful staff.

Our stay at Imperial Osaka was average. Whilst it is located next to the river, it is actually away from the main attractions. The shuttle to the Osaka Station takes 15 minutes and we are required to catch a short subway to Shin-Osaka which is slightly inconvenient. The most disappointing thing is the fact that we are required to pay ¥5000+ (A$60) for access to the fitness center. We have stayed in many hotels of similar standards and have never had to pay for gym access. We would have expected free access to the gym for a hotel that claims to be a “luxury” hotel.

Terrific, centrally-located hotel with a great view of the river. We lucked out and arrived just in time for prime cherry blossom viewing at the Japan Mint - a 7 minute stroll along the river from the hotel. Subway station and shops were also conveniently close by. Hotel staff were friendly, and the rooms unusually large for Japan. The bathroom was absolutely luxurious, and I especially enjoyed the wonderful breakfast buffet with its nice selection of Japanese and Western items.

I had stayed at imperial many years ago and it was wonderful to be back. Great park to walk behind the hotel especially during the sakura cherry blossom season, alongside the river. Tastefully appointed rooms. Great gym - although you do need to pay for its use. Japanese etiquette is quite elaborate but it’s fun after you get used to it. Gym has a sauna and public bath. Maybe Imperial is not known for its restaurants but there are restaurants in the shopping complex attached.

Stayed here with my two teenage sons for two nights. This was our last stop in Japan and we wanted to spoil ourselves for our last hotel. It was certainly luxurious. The service at check in was great. The bell hop came up to our room and explained the heating and showed us around. We were on the imperial floor (19) and had great views of the river. The beds were so comfortable and the shower was amazing. The bath was great too and we really appreciated a soak after all our travels. The push button lights, drapes and background music was cool as it could all be done from bed! The restaurants were expensive although we had a nice lunch at the 'casual dining' cafe which was actually pretty posh. There is a shopping mall attached to the hotel with not many shops but a convenience store, a cafe and mcdonalds which is handy if you don't want to pay for the restaurants. The location is quiet and very pretty beside the river. It is a short walk to the Osaka loop train station so easy to get around on JR pass (highly recommend getting a JR pass, ours paid for themselves many times over and were just so convenient). My only disappointment was the pool cost extra and there is an age limit of 20 years old. To be able to have a swim would have absolutely topped off our stay. For a five star hotel, the pool should be included and there should not be an age limit.

Although only here for 1 night, we could easily have stayed longer. This hotel makes you feel special,faith all staff very attentive to you as a customer. We were on the 14 th floor with amazing views over the river and city. Our room was excellence in everything you could ask for and more. I cannot speak highly enough of this Hotel, it is perfect in every way, thank you to everyone, and well done.

Classic old style 5 star with regular shuttle to & from JR Osaka station at Sakurabashi Gate exit (note: NOT Shin-Osaka where the bullet train arrives and departs) Large rooms with all mod cons (although cups are a bit small for those who prefer a larger serve) Brilliant concierge service from Hiromi Akai in booking restaurants at short notice. But the absolute highlight was the adjacent Foodscape bakery on the ground floor of the OAP Building. Simply the best coffee in Japan and the best bakery outside of Paris.
