Great hotel with enough space for everyone ”
We stayed at the "Run of House" room in the RIHGA Royal Hotel Osaka for 4nights this time and we highly recommend it for family travelling with children. When we made the booking, we understood in general that it was hard to find a hotel room big enough in Japan so we were only looking for somewhere with a relatively larger room - we didn't realize what we booked in RIHGA was actually a Suite. It offered enough beds for everyone and a huge family bath/shower room. In addition, it has an extra living room (yes, that's correct!!), and an extra toilet room, which was a big nice surprise to all of us - and it was all reasonablely priced. RIHGA hotel itself is a grand hotel with quite a few nice restaurants and shops. Staff at the RIHGA are all very nice and speak good English. We would certainly like to come back in future.
So exciting. ”
Many thanks for the hospitality of Rihga Royal Osaka. It has good location near the center of the Osaka City. And there are so many lestaulant that we can take typical Japanese delicious foods. Yes , So convenient. Rooms are clean and so comfortable. We will make a choice Rihga Royal Osaka again on the next stay. See you next at the counter ! ! ! Have a great job , Rihga Royal Osaka. lol. （＾ω＾）

Great front desk service”
The front desk service was excellent, despite the hotel being not aware of the maximum occupancy of 3 in the Comfort Room, the staff took the initiative to co-ordinate and arrange for another bed to be setup on the very night in order for us to obtain a great night of rest. Room wise, the comfort room was spacious and constantly cleaned thanks to the cleaning staff. The spacious room located 20 stories high also has a great view of Umeda/Downtown Osaka to boast. To top it off, Comfort Room guest can also access the lounge which was adequate for some light reading and email work. Location wise, it may be a little far from Osaka Station. Rihga attempts to mitigate the problem by providing frequent shuttle service rides till the last bus leaving Osaka Station at 10:15 PM. More often than not however, we found ourselves taking a leisurely stroll back to the hotel after missing the last bus. The stroll which last approximately 30 - 40 minutes was quite manageable in a the fine spring weather.
Geat hotel ,staff and food, rooms were good size”
We stayed at the Rihga Royal in Osaka for 8 nights, we had 2 rooms. The staff were outstanding, the rooms were good size, modern and very clean, we had a great view from the 18th floor, breakfast was good quality food. We plan on going back to Japan in the not too distant future and would definately stay at the Rihga Royal Hotel again,
very happy with RIHGA”
We're a group of 6 travelers, all first time travelers to Japan. We got two triple sharing rooms for our 3 night stay. Overall, we enjoyed our stay in RIHGA. They have a shuttle bus that will take you to Osaka Station and then from there you can take the train to your destination. I wasn't able to go around the property but they do have a 7-11 at the basement. Breakfast wasn't included in our package but we decided to try their buffet breakfast on our 2nd day. Quality and Taste are topnotch. Special mention to their square plates with partitions so you can get different food items without them mixing together. Staff are very friendly, courteous, helpful. Though the hotel didn't have complimentary airport transfers, they were helpful enough to give us options and instructions. You can opt to take the train/airport limousine bus from kansai airport to osaka station, or arrange a pick-up but for a fee. If ever I'll go back, I'll stay in RIHGA again.
OSAKA FOR SAKURA. ”
Rhiga Royal Hotel is highly recommendable . The staffs are kind and accomodating especially the concierge. Service is good especially in the restaurants. There is a train station beside the hotel so we were able to see Osaka and Nara on our own through MTR.The very able concierge guided us through his well explained maps. There is also lounge that has free flowing drinks and cookies while overlooking the city proper. Also, we visited Osaka to admire and cherish the blooming of the cherry blosoms and to our suprise because just infront of the hotel are cherry blossom trees in their full bloom. We were very happy and satisfied. Rhiga Royal Hotel exceeded our expectations. And On our last night we were reffered to a very nice Italian cafe house that serve high grade beef, Osteria cafe just across the hotel. I would ddfinetely return to this hotel. Not only that, I would highly recommend it to everyone who is planning to visit Osaka. I am a very satisfied customer . Its all worth it.
Hotel with a vey professional service”
I have been staying at the Rihga Royal Hotel on the last night of my stay in Osaka because my usual hotel was fully booked. This hotel was a nice surprise for me, good rooms, good service and perfect location. I had to catch a train from Osaka Shin station the next morning and took only a few minutes to get there.
Luxury at a Good Price”
I booked this hotel online, having stayed at the Rihga in Kyoto once before. I have to say that the price I got online was very reasonable, especially when I discovered it included breakfast. I have stayed in many donwmarket "business" hotels in Japan that cost the same or even more than this stay at a luxurious upmarket hotel. The room was very big and comfortable, with a nice view of the river, and the service and services available at the hotel were everything one would expect from a hotel of this class. The restaurants were expensive, of course, but there was a massive choice, and the two I tried for dinner (an Italian and a Tempura restaurant) were certainly very good. Rather than the buffet breakfast, I chose a fixed course breakfast which was -- astonishingly! -- varied, but just the right size. Overall, I chose to indulge myself a bit, but if I had wanted to save money I could hardly have done better than this accommodation. Outstanding value for money.
Great hotel on prime location and value for money”
I was not so sure of it at first coz the photos of the room shown on Agodo made our room look really small. However, when we checked in, the room was more cozy than small. We had all the amenities we needed. The hotel is also conveniently located right at Nakanoshima on the Keihan Nakanoshima subway line. As a matter of fact, there is an entrance to the hotel inside the subway station--you don't even have to get out in the cold. The hotel also provides very frequent shuttle bus services to and from Osaka Station until around 10 p.m. which is a bonus. The Japanese-style garden at the one of the hotel's cafe' was also really nice. Will definitely stay here again whenever I'm in Osaka and will recemmend it to everyone.
Great stay, very convenient to public transportation ”
I had a great stay at RIHGA. The staff was attentive and went above my expectations. The hotel offers free shuttle service to JR Osaka station which was nice. There is also a subway right underneath the hotel that can take you all the to Kyoto in about a hour.
We enjoyed our stay at the RIHGA Royal Hotel. The room was clean, a 20- 30 min walk to the city centre, and conveniently, there was a 711 in the basement of the hotel. Overall, good hotel. The hotel pool and gym required an additional charge, sadly.
Beautiful hotel in great location”
I spent 4 nights at the Rihga in the west wing side . As I was a solo traveler I was given a pretty small room which I would have found too small had I traveled with a bigger suitcase, as there would't have be enough space to comfortably open it on the floor. Initially the room also felt a bit hot and after the first night I had to ask for a way to air my room somehow. Also the duvet was too warm but sleeping without was a bit cold. Well, the hotel tried to accommodate my requests immediately by providing me with a air cleaner 'machine' and a lighter blanket to replace the heavy duvet. Their response was quick and the staff handled the issue with politeness and efficiency. Everything else was absolutely fine. I liked the free shuttle service to the main train station running throughout the day every 6 to 15 mins and the location of the hotel, at only 2 mins walk from the underground and only a stroll away from other amenities. Overall excellent service and very nice staff.

It's amazing that they offers free shuttle bus services to Osaka Station and Universal Studio Japan. Save us lots of transportation fees. Room are clean, tidy and big (according to Japan standards). I have a very nice stay in RIHGA.
Excellent staff service”

Highly recommend ”
Pros: I stayed at presidential tower. They offer free breakfast, tea time, afternoon tea and cocktails at different time everyday at lounge bar for presidential guests. Room is a smaller compare with other 5 star hotel I've stayed in KANSAI area. They offer free cosmetic trial package which surprised me and I bought one next day. They have bubble bath and special treatment bath stuff, very good. Reception kept my luggage and sent to my room when came back late for check-in. Shuttle bus every 6 mins to Osaka station very convenient. Cons: A big hotel, different kinds of guests stay here. If you do like a quiet place with safety and privacy, should stay presidential tower. However, Too many children, they got together and celebrated something quite annoying in the lounge bar at night. This makes me confused they supposed to be told kept quiet and should not bother other guests.
Very Good Hotel & Location!!”
Hotel was pleasant and staff were friendly and helpful. We booked a family room which was quite large and clean. Location was bit away from the city centre, however hotel has an excellent shuttle bus service which runs regularly to Osaka Station and also the metro station was in front of the hotel. For the price paid, we wished that we had access to the pool and the gym. These facilities did not include in the price and if you want to use them, you have to pay extra. Overall, we had an enjoyable stay at this hotel.
A great place to stay”
We have stayed here before when visiting Osaka and although it is not in the centre of things the hotel shuttle bus runs every 6 minutes to Osaka station and you can get everywhere from there. Staff speak good English and are always wanting to assist you. Seeing the ladies in their kimonos in the lobby as they head off to a dinner or celebration is always a joy. This is a westernised Japanese hotel not a western hotel trying to be Japanese and consequently the feeling you get staying there is special
Very nice staff and nice location. The hotel provides shuttle to Osaka station every 10 minutes, so it’s so convenient if you are gonna enjoy the umeda area.
Dear HUI, First, we would like to thank you for taking the time to leave us your valuable comments. We are very happy to receive your kind words regarding our staff and their service.

Nice hotel ”
I brought a group of 4 friends to Osaka for 3 days at the end of a very busy 3 week trip in S. Japan; I was not so focused on hotel amenities, more interested in location and price and cleanliness. Location is OK, if one doesn't mind walking 1/2 mile to train station (hotel has a very frequent free shuttle service, however, which is great!); subways in the RR station but not sure where else close by. But, we walked or took the subway everywhere, without any problem. Hotel is good; not sure whether any other location would have been any better.
Dear Cecily, We thank you for taking the time to leave us your valuable comments regarding our location and shuttle bus service. We are glad to hear that this helped you to enjoy your three days in Osaka. We will do everything we can to ensure that all of our guests enjoy their stay to the fullest, and we hope that you would choose to stay at RIHGA Royal Hotel again in the future.
