When travelling with elders in wheelchairs, we've got to need a lot of assistance, ie extra wheelchair. They have it here for free use during the stay! Excellent & relatively fast check-in during our late nite arrival. The view is superd! Overseeing the marine club with wide window scenery + a very cosy balcony...love to come another time for stay!... More

Unfortunately our room stank of cigarette smoke even though it was non-smoking. Kept windows on all night but the smell had permeated everything. The staff were lovely and the best thing is the bath house next door which was fantastic. Breakfast had a large choice and was not bad but of course pricey as its a hotel. The hotel is... More

This hotel is close to the water and upper floors have a nice view. There's nothing particularly special about this property, It is not elegant but well maintained and a getaway spot from Osaka near an amusement park and w/ a nicely kept pool. Bathrooms have tubs with large window overlooking the scenic view. Finally, there is wi-fi in every... More

Location has both pros and cons. The pro is located in an peaceful island. However the con is travelling to city center is not easy and you end up in paying close to 4000 yen for taxi most of the time. Buses are available but frequency is not great. Otherwise the hotel is well maintained and the staff are very... More

This hotel is isolated, away from the main city center, remote from public transport and train, near an industrial area and disneyesque amusement park, overlooking a marina that was pretty quiet during my three days stay. The staff were well intended but for a hotel that housed international delegates for our congress, it was apparent that the english language was... More

In a funny setting, nestled between industrial area (power plant), marina, and an amusement park, Royal Pines Hotel is staffed by people who exude warm hospitality.

Wakayama is a beautiful small town 40 minutes away from Osaka. Its a laid back town with loving people and picturesque canal passing through the town. It gives one a feel of being on an island with small hills and scanty population. We stayed in the beautiful hotel for 3 nights. Reaching Wakayama can be tough for international business/tourist travellers.... More
