First time staying at Rihga, and all I can say is it deserved 5 out of 5 stars. check in and out was swift, rooms was spacious with nice view of the river. the free shuttle from and to Osaka Station was a big +++ since we have two young kids and do not need to carry luggages. Special thanks...

RIHG ROYAL HOTEL This was my first time stay in this hotel and also my first time in OSAKA as well. My room was very small but equipped with all the things that I needed. Since I spent most of the time outside the hotel , the room was acceptable. Had difficulty time when I tried to operate TV inside...

Stayed here for a business trip for a week. I only had to leave the hotel once to go sightseeing - everything you could ever need is in this hotel! The hotel is a little dated but is kept in excellent condition. The whole staff is incredibly friendly and even if they do not speak English they will do their...

This hotel has long history and was one of most premium hotels in this city, however, time flies and after some strong competitors opened, it may be loosing previous glory. Still hotel staffs are trying to keep excellent enough hospitality and cleanness as much as they can, I truly repute it. End of the day, however some facilities got old,...

I found Rihga Royal hotel is old, when I saw the lobby and bathroom. But except that, I got satisfied everything there. Every staff are very kind, the room is very clean, the amenity is all right. They keep good quality although the facility has been getting old.

Stayed here for my night in Osaka. The hotel is about a 15 minute walk from Osaka station, though it appears there is also a shuttle bus running from the station to the hotel. The hotel has a decent boutique shopping area as well as many restaurants and bars in the basement area and lobby level. Plus, the basement has...

Stayed at this hotel for the first time in my life. I used to live here in Osaka working for another hotel, but stayed here for the first time. It is an older hotel, a little ways from any station, but they do have a shuttle to the core of Umeda, which runs frequently. The "single" room I reserved, was...

We booked a standard double room but once we got at the hotel we got upgraded to a deluxe double room. Although the hotel has a few years under its belt, it is still an amazing place to stay. Our room had the biggest bed we've ever slept in (you could easily sleep 5 people in it). The hotel provides...

I visited Osaka to attend a business meeting so I stayed at RIHGA for few days. I had expected the room to be small as it's the standard in Japan but I think they could've done a much better job on decorating to make the room feel more welcoming. Pictures are included for reference.

really perfect location to stay at this hotel for attending teaching from Dalai Lama at the Osaka convention center (which is just next door-even don't need to bring a raincoat!) can find rooms with smaller size but economic price in the West wing so good choice if you prefer not to share room with others or share at half price....
