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 However the room is quite outdated.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

Stayed here for a business trip for a week. I only had to leave the hotel once to go sightseeing - everything you could ever need is in this hotel! The hotel is a little dated but is kept in excellent condition. The whole staff is incredibly friendly and even if they do not speak English they will do their... More

This hotel has long history and was one of most premium hotels in this city, however, time flies and after some strong competitors opened, it may be loosing previous glory. Still hotel staffs are trying to keep excellent enough hospitality and cleanness as much as they can, I truly repute it. End of the day, however some facilities got old,... More

I found Rihga Royal hotel is old, when I saw the lobby and bathroom. But except that, I got satisfied everything there. Every staff are very kind, the room is very clean, the amenity is all right. They keep good quality although the facility has been getting old.
