Kansai Airport Washington Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A cheaper option than Nikko hotel on the airport island. Room and amenities are well maintained. Comfortable bed and pillow. Easy access to airport by cab/free shuttle bus/train especially if you have early flight to catch.

My wife and I stayed at this Hotel for 3 nights in mid-November, 2017. It’s a modern hotel in a convenient location (with the town center, shops, restaurants and major train lines within a 10-minutes’ walk) and yet in a quiet surrounding. Kansai International Airport for Osaka/Kyoto is a short 12-minutes shuttle bus ride (each way) offered by the hotel. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. The breakfast buffet spread is quite substantial, and with a 24-hour convenience store within the hotel. I'd recommend this as a good-value hotel in a nice, and very convenient location.

We stayed at a hotel near the airport since our flight arrived after 8pm at night and we didn't want the hassle of catching a train into Osaka, which takes a hour travel time. This hotel has it's own shuttle bus that run every 30 minutes until late, from the airport terminal to the hotel which is located in Rinku Town, which was a plus. Unfortunately, there is not much to see at Rinku Town, there is a 'pleasure entertainment area' that contains a Ferris wheel and restaurants but by the time we arrived there at 9:30pm (after we had check-in to the hotel) none of the restaurants we willing to take our order and were about to close. We then went back to the hotel and eat from the convenience store located on the second floor, which had many options for take away meals which is open 24 hours. The reception staff were friendly and polite. The room was OK and the bed was comfortable.

We came here as part of a tour however we were happy with it. It was located close to some retail outlets which had pretty good prices. Breakfast was quite good and we had a good night's sleep here. All in all it was a good hotel.

This hotel is located next to Rinku station, 800 m to Rinku seacle town with onsen, about 1.5 km to Rinku premium outlets. The hotel offers shuttle services to the Kansai airport . Parking is behind the hotel. Basically you pull a ticket and present to front desk upon exit for free passage. The hotel also has a 24 hour convenient stall on the second level whereby you can get drinks, snacks ,ice-cream, bread etc. Upon exiting this convenient stall, you can walk across a bridge to a huge duty free complex opposite selling toiletries, foodstaff, baby goods etc. Tax free is only if you purchase more than 5000 yen. The room is comfortable with amenities like a fridge, hotpot ,small TV. No mineral water is provided though there is an ice machine on the same floor. Wifi is good. Bed is comfortable with two pillows each. Breakfast starts at 6:30 am earliest. The spread is adequate with both Japanese and Western dishes to start the day. Overall a good stay considering the price.

Nice hotel. I got for good price which was worth. There is a convenience store at 2nd Floor to buy emergency items which runs 24 hour. Staffs are very nice and our room got a nice night view. Near to aiport, shuttle bus available.( we missed last shuttle bus still over night bus available exclusively for washington hotel for 500 Yen.) Very near to Rinku Town station 1 min walk. Buy Osaka pass from Rinku Station and travel.

We were impressed and surprised with the standard of the hotel after the number of negative reviews we had read. Our non-smoking rooms did not smell bad, our rooms were clean and our free shuttle bus was there early and left punctually. Staff spoke English and were polite. The bed was very comfortable Wifi was fast.. The hotel was close to the tube station and the shopping outlet.. We were happy with the hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. Stayed last week and found that the hotel is now basically full of flight crew and large tour groups from China. Furthermore, the policies and standards of the staff are inferior to other hotels in the area. Was scheduled to stay tonight and due to a typhoon in Hong Kong I was unable to fly. Will arrive in Japan one day later and the hotel refused to honor my booking because it was not 'made directly with the hotel'. Due to weather conditions this is very poor customer service and a shame to see standards so low in Japan where superior standards are the norm. For those staying near to KIX there are numerous other hotels and I would recommend steering clear of Washington Hotel as they are inflexible and standards have dropped.

Yes - the hotel is in a good location, especially for early flights out the next day. The staff was polite and provided good customer service. I'll stop there. The hallways and rooms are dingy and need updating. The hotel has a bad smell. The bed was the hardest surface I've ever slept on - and this comes from a critic who spent over 20 years in the military and has slept on the ground more times than I care to admit. Nevertheless, I could stay at mediocre hotel with a rock-hard bed for an affordable price. Unfortunately, I spent $200+ for the room. I didn't get my money's worth. Stay elsewhere until their ratings improve. You'll be glad you did.

We stayed here before catching our flight home the next morning and thought it was fantastic for the price. Twin bed rooms are relatively spacious, cosy, and clean. Staff were friendly and the hotel itself looks lovely. There is a FamilyMart in the hotel which was convenient. Had a free shuttle bus to the airport in the morning which was fast and comfortable. Great access from Rinku Town station as the hotel connects to the station via an elevated walkway. Travel to the hotel was easy via an airport express line that passes through Osaka Station and relevant Osaka Loop Line stations. Overall we were very impressed with this hotel considering what we paid for.
