“Great location next to the river.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago

This was a very nice hotel. The room was beautiful and had a great view of the river. The bathroom was large with a shower and soaking tub. Within walking distance to the train station but also the hotel had a shuttle that goes to various places you just get a ticket a the bell desk its complimentary.

Beautiful hotel located across the canal from Osaka Castle. We arrived late on New Year's Eve so ended up celebrating at the Rainbow Lounge on 23rd floor overlooking Osaka city skyline. We lucked out at check in when reception staff kindly upgraded us to the Executive Floor with views overlooking the city. We found the shuttle bus service (runs every 10 mins) to be very helpful getting to and from Osaka Station. For those who prefer a beautiful walk, navigate your way to osaka castle on foot (which is a 30 mins easy walk from the hotel). The hotel is also connected to a shopping arcade but unfortunately most shops were closed New Year's day.

Stayed January 2017, travelled with family

I stayed at this hotel for one night. Receptionist was helpful. The twin bed room was nice and warm since I went here Japan in winter. It has good toiletries include cosmetic sample from famous brand in Japan. I had breakfast at the restaurant in the ground floor because the other floor already full. The restaurant provided Japanese and Western menu.

Stayed November 2016

The Imperial Hotel Osaka is located far away from the main city district to get away from the bustle but close enough to be within touching distance of the action... beautiful old hotel located right next to a river with a pretty park and excellent dining options (check out the Oriental Garden it's a must).

The rooms are old and possibly could do with a refurb but all in all you will enjoy top class service, excellent facilities and all the extras you would expect for a hotel of this price.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2016

Location: I wouldn't say it's centrally located in Osaka at all. In fact, it takes about 15 minutes by cab to get to the central area of Osaka - the Dotonburi area - so it's a bit inconvenient. The train station is also quite a walk from the hotel. Nearest one is about 10 minutes walk and it's way across the river. Would be a hassle in the rain.

Room: Love the amenities. Typical of Imperial actually. Well stocked.

Staff: Excellent. We asked to ship our luggage and they went out of their way to wrap our luggage for us.
