RIGHA was pretty convenient, with quick and free shuttle bus service to and from Osaka Station, a location near the river, and a convenience store nearby. There's a slightly expensive bakery next to the lobby that sells some interesting items, too. There isn't much else to do in the area, but once you hop the shuttle to the station, Kansai... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights at the end of our trip to Japan. It was well located near Osaka Station. There was a very convenient shuttle bus (free) from the hotel to the station which made life much easier. The shuttle only operated from 0730-2215. However it is only a short, ~700Y taxi ride from the hotel... More

We arrived at Osaka Train Station in the evening after traveling from the USA. Upon entering the station, we had no idea how to connect with the RIHGA Royal Hotel free shuttle. Looking confused, a lady asked us if she could help us. She immediately took us to the hotel shuttle stop with was located outside the train station in... More

I selected this hotel for my last night stay in Osaka base on the 4 stars rating ! However due to the change of our plans for the trip, we arrived Osaka one day earlier and paid double to stay another night at the comfort tower ! I just want to point out that only the comfort tower will deserve... More

Although more than an hour from the Kansai airport (taxis are prohibitively expensive in Osaka) this hotel is attached to the Congress centre and is ideally located for those attending a conference there. The lobby is pleasant, spacious and well lit. Rooms are good- I got one without a view, though. The fittings are old but functional. There are numerous... More

it was actually good enough for a weekend but it feels very old and out-dated. They have a great shuttle service to the city center. I haven't been impress by this hotel even if the location is good. Could be perfect for my grand-parents

Since Osaka hotels rates are low, I decided to stay in the Tower wing on the executive floor. The extra charge was very much worth it. Service was impeccable. The size of the room was good and the bed was perfect. The indoor pool was also very nice.

We booked a room in west wing with three beds and the room is huge in Japanese standard. There are two bathrooms in our room. However the room is quite outdated. We really like their free shuttle service between the hotel and the JR station. We don't need to wait more than five minutes for each shuttle. It saved us... More
