RIHGA Royal Hotel Osaka

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

You are treated like a very special guest from when you arrive at the hotel until you leave. This beats any other hotel we've stayed in, in the world. This is not an exaggeration because the Keihan Line runs under the hotel on their B1 level and we were able to go to Kyoto from here. Also in the B1 level is a 7 Eleven, shops and high end restaurants. On the lobby level the Remone Restaurant serves more reasonable priced meals plus this is the restaurant with an eye and tummy appeal for about 2800 Yen for a you get your money's worth breakfast. If you come from Kansai Airport on the JR Rapid Express you can catch their free hotel shuttle every 6-15 minutes depending on time of day til about 10 pm or so. They have the most organized boarding system from the hotel back to Osaka Station if you are in search of shops, food in the station as well as Grand Front Osaka. The easist way to catch the return shuttle back to the hotel to me is to go through Eki Marche store in the station to the street level and the shuttle stop is right out the door. The room was large enough, with a double set of great smelling toiletries and amenities in a two tiered box on the countertop. There is always warm water and they provide bath, hand and washcloths plus mat. The ac unit and tv worked fine. There is even ample space in the closet along with bedroom slippers and robes. The maid service is diligent, the room's immaculate appearance is the same always.

Great Hotel. Staff was excellent, beautiful facilities. Location was great. Be aware that there is free adult films on the TV and may cause some conflict, wouldn't say its family friendly, more business and adults. Pool facilities cannot be used if you have tattoos... this was a big minus for us, even if your tattoos were small and not offensive. Would stay here again but if a hotel with a pool in the area allowed us would stay there instead. Close to transit, food and tourist attractions.

Great service. Access to subway and bus from hotel! Many shops and restaurants inside hotel. Only be prepared for smoky smell throughout. A/c is sketchy too but that's all of Japan unfortunately.

Nice Hotel near city center. A Metro stattion is connected to the Hotel. There are free Hotel buses connected to JR railway station.

Well-appointed, spacious room and great service from hotel staff. All-in-all, a first-rate experience. And ultra-convenient for events at Osaka convention center, next to hotel.

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Rihga Royal Hotel in Osaka. The front desk personnel was extremely polite, as were pretty much everyone that worked at the hotel. When I came back to the room, it was meticulously cleaned by the staff. Although the room was relatively small, I found it to be comfortable and perfectly suited for a person on a business trip. It had a long desk and a swivel lamp for getting work done. There were numerous restaurants and shops on the lobby level as well as the lower basement level. This hotel was clearly one of the better ones in the area.
