Hotel Granvia Osaka
Ranked #51 of 322 Hotels / Ryokan in Osaka
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Our room was bright, clean and pleasant, with a nice view. I wish we could have had a larger bed, as the twin/double size is cramped for a couple (and we're small people), although much larger than a Western twin if you want to sleep separately.

Service was good, but this was the only one of four hotels where we stayed in Japan that didn't offer breakfast with the room charge.

The location over Osaka Station is perfect. We also found that Osaka residents using the station were generous with directions, approaching us with help before we asked for it.

Bought a package from Tokyo to Osaka via Japanican.com. We must've been lucky, this was the best steal ever! We were expecting pigeon holes with no space to move, but we got what we never expected!

Althought the reception was small, the japanese were very efficient! They checked us in within minutes! The room was spacious and comfortable. With en suite bathroom, that had a bath tub and automated toilet. Everything was equipped, shower gel, shampoo, u name it!

The most important thing is, it was very convenient for transportation, just located on top of the JR Osaka station & a shopping centre. Finding food shouldnt be a problem as there are many convenient stores in the station itself. I would definitely recommend it!

Purpose of stay: Business

Perfectly located above the JR Osaka Station and therefore, great bus and train connections and fantastic for walking around the city for business or pleasure.

Hotel has recently opened the 'Granvia Floor' (Level 27) - nicely refurbished rooms and staying on this floor provides access to a guest lounge that provides complimentary tea/coffee/juice and biscuits. Floor 27 can only be access by guests staying on that floor.

Complimentary Wi-Fi is provided.

Staff were friendly and efficient.

Booking Tip: On the hotel website you will note 'inside rooms' are listed and generally way beneath the price of the other rooms. 'Inside Rooms' simply have no view of the city, they face a central atrium and other rooms. Savings to be made if you are not so concerned with a view.

Room Service was odd. Room service operates ONLY from 9pm - midnight. One assumes that this limited provision is to 'encourage' you to dine in one of the 9 in-house restaurants. When travelling for business this inconvenience needs to be considered.

The hotel reception was full of people all the time, a very busy hotel with minimal service.

Room size is fair but with contemporary design.

Best thing is they have free wi-fi at the hotel lobby and inside the hotel rooms.

This hotel is the best if you are in Osaka. Right above the Osaka station lets you go around Osaka without spending on Taxi fare. The Airport shuttle also drops you right in front of the hotel. Vending machines are placed on each floor and drinking water is available for free. Breakfast is also good. The rooms are clean and of reasonable size. Lobby area is a bit cramped but checkin/checkout is smooth and the staff is highly efficient. Overall a very convenient place to stay.

The hotel is just above the JR Osaka Station, very convenient for most travellers. It has a few department stores nearby; really an ideal hotel for shopaholics. The room is small but adequate. It's also clean and bright. Shower is hot and air-con is powerful. Wifi is available in the room and at lobby. We booked our room directly at the hotel's website with a decent discount. We were very happy with this hotel because of its very convenient location, and would like to come back in the future.

Hotel located at the train station very close to bus station as well. Major shopping mall attached outside the front entrance inside (to avoid high humidity days). The rooms were quite reasonable with above average size and sufficient ammenities. Love the vending machines stocked with beer (and water etc.) on every floor (wish NA hotels followed this idea)! I only ate in the one main restaurant for breakfast and the buffet style was well stocked with both NA and Japanese food. Fresh and good service. It was difficult to just have a drink as the many restaurants seemed to only offer sit-down food not just a lounge despite the names that implied differently? Location was very convenient for shopping, transportation and site-seeing. Would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling on business or for pleasure.

Room Tip: All rooms face into a busy city and seem to be away from noisey elevator waiting areas so I don'...
