This is my first time here, both the hotel and the city and I truly enjoy my stay. The staff is very helpful though they may not all speak very good English, they still try their best to help. Everything to me is quite reasonable and when you walk out of the hotel, there's a river you can walk along...

For the price and the title of the hotel, do not expect to be staying in a royal hotel. Ventilation is bad- we came in winter time and the room felt like it was summer. The aircon is actually a heater and the dehumidifier does not do the job. The room is very very outdated and unclean. I found numerous...

Came to Osaka for a conference and chose the RIHGA primarily for its proximity to the convention center. Room was average-sized but comfortable, so I can't really complain on that front. It's a little warm inside but we found that to be the case all over Japan so just cracked the window the let some air in and humidity out....

The room is ok and seems clean but the ventilation is bad. If you turn on air conditioning it gets too hot. The bathroom smells really bad and looks dirty. As the hotel is huge the shuttle to and from Osaka Station comes often, but is also often full. The breakfast is really great and you can even use the...

I was a little disappointed by the atmosphere of the hotel. Really small rooms and the overall impression is not modern to me. Old 90's style with carpets everywhere. Also the breakfast was generally average.

best location for those attending the conference as it features covered walkway to the convention center. the amenities were first class, the wifi was free. I appreciated the sleeping robe just when I inconveniently forgot to pack sleepwear. breakfast can be taken either at the dining hall buffet style or as room service just in case you don't want to...

This is by far the best hotel I've stayed at in Osaka. The room was big and comfortable. There's even background music in the room. Clean big super King sized bed with beautiful view at the window. I was most impressed with the laundry service. They were efficient and detail oriented. The wifi was strong and straightforward to log in....

I really liked the hotel but the bathroom had hair in it in several places (toilet, tub sink). That just grossed me out. When you stay in a hotel, you know you're sleeping in a room where hundreds of others have slept but a clean room let's you delude yourself into thinking it's only yours. A dirty room just smashes...

Early check in at noon – ¥8,460 (Over $80.00) was not advised there would be an early check in charge. I arrived from the airport and was told “your room is ready” no extra charge was mentioned, If I had been advised of the charge I would have declined, ¥8,460 is overpriced for a couple hours wait for a regular...
