Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The hotel is a big convention centre with a lot of tourists from around the world. It is a very big building and you can’t miss it. The hotel was nice and it did a job for a nights stay but the room was very basic and had tired furnishings. It also advertises that it had a pool, but this was closed. The hotel also advertised a gym for guests but this was an extra charge which wasn’t advertised when booking the hotel via hotels.com. There is a free shuttle bus which was handy to head to Osaka station as it is quite a walk otherwise.

宿泊以外では利用したことがありますが、 大阪梅田から近くないので宿泊はしたことがありませんでした。 バースデー祝いに、と宿泊しましたがさすがの老舗。 古いけれどサービスはきちんとしていました。 朝はバスで大阪駅まで。 タクシーでもワンメーター程で着きます。 Comfortable big hotel. It’s not near from Osaka station very much. But you can use shuttle bus from Osaka station to Hotel. Vice versa.

This is a beautiful hotel and staff is very welcoming and attentive, as is common in Japan. Our room was nice but the bed was quite small for 2 adults, more like a US standard to queen size. This was a bit unexpected in a world class hotel. Breakfast was nice, offered as buffet or a la carte but not included in room rate. They have a convenient and free shuttle from Osaka JR station, located with other shuttles outside the station.

We loved out stay in Osaka, the shuttle to osaka station was incredibly handy and ran all the time.... We would also like to thank Concierge, who advised us on so much stuff, gave us maps and answered all our questions about getting to universal Studio, and the complimentary shuttle was excellent... .. Our room was small, but bigger than some we stayed in this trip, it was really quiet and if course clean.... RIHGA Royal was a lovely hotel, we would definitely stay again.... We didnt do breakfast as it was quite expensive, but the 7/11 down stairs supplied everything we needed...... once again, thanks so much..

This hotel needs an overall upgrade. Rooms are really dated with tired furnishings. The rooms are also tiny and STINK of cigarette smoke. We were in a non-smoking room?? I wouldn’t book here again unfortunately.

Stayed a night from Sunday. The hotel was very busy with many wedding parties. It was much quieter on Monday. Access to the hotel is quite good with a free bus service to and from JR Osaka Station, as well as being directly connected to Nakanoshima Station on the Keihan Nakanoshima Line. The twin-bed room was quite large. So was the bathroom compared with typical Japanese city hotels. The bed was very comfortable as well. I agree with some reviews saying it's expensive to eat in the hotel. There are plenty of restaurants in the Fukushima area some of which I found quite good.

We got a good deal at this hotel, however, like others we could not afford to eat there. But the super staff were happy to recommend restaurants in the area which were within walking distance and we returned to one that they recommended, it was so good. Also, because of the free shuttle bus we were able to use this facility to find suitable breakfast places around the station. The room was a good size and so was the bathroom, but I would have expected a larger bed - a little cramped for the size of the room and both of us verge on the skinny size of small. I was also unaware of the 7/11 in the basement and have just found out about it by reading previous reviews! Therefore my feedback to the hotel would be to make sure the guests know about all the available facilities, either by promotional literature at check-in or in the room. Please also get an English TV channel - BBC News or CNN. I think you would get better reviews if you had more affordable dining - it's just too expensive to eat there and I think you are missing a trick.

I travel alot, and this time with my familie. I checked out the room on hotels.com, they look very pretty, but very fare from what we just got. I do understand that there is several levels of room, but event the smallest room on hotels.com does not compare to what we got. I am even a hotel.com vip guest. Everything cost extra, even the pool. Nice employee, but i would not recommended it, because it does not delever what is promised.

This is one of the best hotel experiences we have had and great value. We booked room only and it was less expensive than most other hotels on our trip. However, the 20 dining options are quite expensive. It is a large hotel but it was not impersonal and we felt very ‘at home’. The room on the ‘comfort floors’ was lovely. We had a free upgrade to a larger room which was huge and had a jacuzzi bath. The beds were large and comfortable, room very quiet. High quality toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities. Staff were extremely helpful and courteous. Although in a business area, the frequent free courtesy bus to Osaka station made it so convenient for everything. There is a very good 7/11 in the basement and two others nearby. Would thoroughly recommend staying here - it was a real find!
