Wow! This old school Hotel in Osaka is simply wonderful. There are shops of every description, more places to eat that anyone could want, and some truly delightful taverns as well. My Bride and I wandered down to the Cellar Bar for a night cap last night and found ourselves surrounded in a delightful Old English Club atmosphere featuring a piano bar. The prices were quite reasonable. We are planning a wedding here in June so we spent most of yesterday arranging everything from rental Kimonos to western clothing, flowers, meals, invitations, the whole thing in one place. The all day restaurant Remone offers set meals or buffet style meals. You can purchase breakfast coupons very reasonably, The in-house bakery is top notch, two florists, and you can even purchase your new Bentley or Rolls Royce in house if you like. All-in-all this is a wonderful place to stay. The staff is friendly, it is easy to find english speaking staff, or most any language for that matter.
I liked the room I was given. It was spacious compared to one you will get in most Tokyo hotels. I liked the interiors though I must say the t&b was a little dated with the. 4-inch square wall tiles, shower curtain and all. It was clean though. The breakfast buffet was sprawled in a large area with pockets of dining sections . One was even separated by a bridge and was surrounded by a pond. I think the sectioned dinner plate-trays were cute.
The hotel is nicely located to the convention center. It was suitable for our team members for business meeting there. This is an international hotel. The rooms were clean and the service was good. I recommend it if you have a business around
Having staff speaking solid English that we're happy to make calls for me and get travel plans sorted was impressive. Entrance is beautiful with a lovely waterfall to relax by. Room was fine and nothing special at the rate. The hotel is attached to the convention center so often have massive groups. Note shuttle to JR is also available.
This is my first time here, both the hotel and the city and I truly enjoy my stay. The staff is very helpful though they may not all speak very good English, they still try their best to help. Everything to me is quite reasonable and when you walk out of the hotel, there's a river you can walk along or go for a jog at the bank. My room is small but that's fine, I like the bed and everything is clean. The best thing? Free shuttle bus service to Osaka station everyday and frequently. If you're traveling alone or simply wanna explore this place, I recommend this hotel strongly.
For the price and the title of the hotel, do not expect to be staying in a royal hotel. Ventilation is bad- we came in winter time and the room felt like it was summer. The aircon is actually a heater and the dehumidifier does not do the job. The room is very very outdated and unclean. I found numerous hairs on the floor and even in the bathroom (the short kind!!!) if you plan to take a hot shower or bath, be prepared to feel like your in the sauna as there's no fan. The carpet is rolling up in places, the flat screen is tiny, and the internet constantly drops out. The only saving grace was the staff. If you want something for the year 2017, go elsewhere!
Came to Osaka for a conference and chose the RIHGA primarily for its proximity to the convention center. Room was average-sized but comfortable, so I can't really complain on that front. It's a little warm inside but we found that to be the case all over Japan so just cracked the window the let some air in and humidity out. The taxi stand outside makes for easy transport to various places. The Keihan railway Nakanoshima station is also right outside if you want to negotiate the Osaka subway system—we walked most places. Breakfast buffet is really good but also really expensive (~$50 for two people), so we opted most days to just grab things from joints in the area. They also did our laundry for us and the rate was quite reasonable.
The room is ok and seems clean but the ventilation is bad. If you turn on air conditioning it gets too hot. The bathroom smells really bad and looks dirty. As the hotel is huge the shuttle to and from Osaka Station comes often, but is also often full. The breakfast is really great and you can even use the vouchers for room service which is a great service. There are better hotels in Osaka.
I was a little disappointed by the atmosphere of the hotel. Really small rooms and the overall impression is not modern to me. Old 90's style with carpets everywhere. Also the breakfast was generally average.
best location for those attending the conference as it features covered walkway to the convention center. the amenities were first class, the wifi was free. I appreciated the sleeping robe just when I inconveniently forgot to pack sleepwear. breakfast can be taken either at the dining hall buffet style or as room service just in case you don't want to get dressed early for breakfast. the hotel was near the Osaka station and very accessible to shops through the well organized shuttle service. the concierge was very helfpul regarding airport transfers.
