“All ok.”
Reviewed 14 April 2013

The hotel is very good and spaces are wide and well furnished. The service is good. Restaurants are ok.the standard rooms are not so wide and seems to be ten years ago.
It is well connected with the city with a very near station.

Very friendly staff, especially from the concierge desk.
Room is big when comparing with normal Japanese hotels.
Good quite location albeit a bit away from shopping arcades.
Have frequent free shuttle bus and a small metro link to other major underground stations.

Ideal for the business traveler as is centrally located with a business centre in the adjacent building and sakura flowers blossoming outside. Rihga Royal has small rooms but its lobby remains very busy as it is a large hotel. There is a small shopping complex in the basement and the breakfast restaurant called , Remone, remains very busy from 7 am to 9 am. There is a waiting period of upto 20 mins to have breakfast between 7 am to 9 am.

Room Tip: The rooms are small as is expected in Japan but are value for money.

Wow, from 25 degree Taichung city to 2 degree Osaka, that hit.
Arrived at the Rihga to typical Japanese service and efficiency. Check in for the group I was hosting was simple and easy, no delays and sent to the rooms. First problem though is that many people have been placed into smoking rooms or on smoking floors. Of the group of 40, all are non smokers. There was some rearrangements and all happy.
The hotel is beautiful and the facilities first class.
Some rooms are very small with barely enough room for a bed and tiny shower. Most beds are king single, so for the taller among our group, there may be a struggle.
The breakfast buffet is enormous and a good mix of eastern and western foods.
The hotel is situated only a 10 minute walk up into some great bars and restaurants down picture postcard alley's
First impressions are great.

Room Tip: Ask for a twin to get some space

Had a great stay, the Rhiga is a huge , but very nice Hotel with reasonable prices. Food options were excellent and location quite good. To use the gym and pool facilities was extra and not worth the hefty cost.

Room Tip: If your looking for a free pool / gym, don't stay here, whilst it a nice pool the cost is extra...

This hotel was booked for me for a business trip. I would not choose it for personal travel. I was given a very small room. And if you don't smoke - be sure to ask for NON SMOKING! At first I was given a smoking room and it had a terrible odor. The hotel itself is impressive, with a ton of amenities. There are several lounges, bars, and restaurants. There is a large shopping mall in the basement, and access to the Osaka subway. You could easily stay here for days and never need to leave the hotel. But I hope you do, since Osaka has a lot to see and experience. One very nice perk was free wifi IN THE ROOM! Free wifi is very difficult to find in Japan. You're lucky if your hotel has it in the lobby. So it was pretty nice to have it available in the room. Also the breakfast buffet was very, very good.
