I brought my team of 90 people from China here for a national convention and the service was horrible. Food selection was the same each day. Service staff were not helpful and often rude in communication with us throughout our 5 day stay in Osaka. At one point, in the middle of a meeting, the staff burst into the room... More

When I was researching hotels due to prices etc this seemed like the best choice even though local experts implied the location was not good. Honestly, now that we've gone and come back, I think really other than staying right by the JR Osaka station I don't think any one hotel may be any better since it depends on where... More

First time in this hotel ... three words: very recommended place to stay due to shuttle bus reliability which is always ready (within 6 minutes) to bring you to Osaka Station vv ... for free!, polite and nice hospitality from the staff, and location. Willing to be back again to this hotel someday ....

A very large hotel with accommodation for various budgets, I've experienced Rihga's presidential tower as most enjoyable. Wonderful choice of food for any tastes or time of the day, if you did not get your fare in town, I've particularly enjoyed the main lounge cafe - velvety matcha with a garden view - as well as the traditional chabu-chabu restaurants...

The Hotel have a regular shuttle bus service to Osaka Station every 6minutes after 10 O'clock in the morning until 8 O'clock at the night. So it is very convenient to and fro the Shopping areas and the train station. The breakfast is also fruity.

Very comfortable and excellent service. I got promoted to a presidential suite as there was one free and I only paid for a regular room. Bring your own snacks as food stores in the hotel super expensive.

We stayed at the Natural Comfort room at RIHGA Royal Hotel Osaka in June 2014 for a conference. The Natural Comfort room is slightly more expensive than the standard guest rooms. But it was worth every penny! The room was beautiful, spacious and has a river/ city view. The hotel has pretty much everything you will need -- bars, restaurants,... More

Stayed at the property during the Christmas holiday season. Decent location (though not the best compared to hotels within walking distance to the Osaka/Umeda stations such as Hilton and Ritz Carlton) around 10-minute's ride to the Osaka Station by the hotel's shuttle bus which departs from the hotel every 10 minutes or so. The standard room was small as many... More

A bit too crowded and busy. Concierge is always occupied by local guests and it takes too long for them to handle a seemingly simple inquiry (such as directions). English is as always difficult here... So you have to wait extra for a English-speaking staff to attend you. Room is dated and need renovation. Anyway it's still a nice hotel... More
