Hotel New Otani Osaka


I love this hotel.  If you are looking for cozy hotels near Osaka Castle, I really think you should stay here.  This is not a luxury hotel, but very comfortable.  This is one of the typical Japanese city hotels. If you want to experience sophisticated Japanese hospitality with a personal touch, you should stay here.  All staff tends to be professional.  On top of that, the property has great value for money.  The ambiance is serene, tranquil, and relaxed.   This would be great for couples, family, business persons, solo travelers, or groups.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a view of Osaka Castle on the executive floors from 15F to 17F.  You can absolutory see a beautiful Osaka castle while chilling out at your room.  The castle is illuminated at night in a special atmosphere.  That’s amazing.  Overall facilities tend to be outdated, but well-maintained.  The housekeeping was excellent.  The room is functional, user-friendly, and cozy.  Wifi reception is great in the property.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, drip coffee bags, water bottles, tea bags, and green tea bags, etc.  An air clear, a Bluetooth speaker, and a DVD player were placed in our room.  Room service is available from 6:00-25:00.  There are some convenience stores nearby.  Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide amenities, baby cribs, and bed guards, etc. if you request in advance.  There are a kids’ playroom and a day-care center in-house too.  Then there is an outdoor swimming pool, a gym, saunas, communal baths, and tennis courts, etc., in-house.   All of them are available at an additional charge.  You may want to bring sportswear, swimwear, and shoes, etc. if you use the facilities.  The outdoor swimming pool is open between July and Aug only.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing and swimming area.  Then this is universal design.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then the food experience is great.  There are many restaurants in the hotel, such as Chinese, shabu shabu, Teppanyaki Grill, French, Sushi, Kaiseki and Yakiniku, etc.  Also, we tried buffet-style breakfast on 1F.  You can choose the western or Japanese buffet for breakfast.  Japanese buffet has a lot of local food, such as Takoyaki, Okonomiyaki, and Udon, etc.  That’s interesting.  The breakfast time is 7:00-10:00.  Then after dinner, don’t forget to visit the sky bar on 18F.  The ambiance is incredible for adults.  You can drink while viewing an illuminated Osaka castle.  Then if you are planning to visit Kyoto too, you should take a shuttle bus from the hotel.  The bus fare is JPY1,100 to Kyoto Station or JPY1300 to Gion Shijo.  Also, Osaka wonder loop bus stops at Hotel New Otani Osaka.  That’s convenient.  If this is your first visit Osaka, you should stay at the hotel.  Then before breakfast, don’t forget to take a walk around Osaka Castle.  The atmosphere would be special as there are few people around there.  At last, if you want to chill out in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, the third week of July to late Aug, weekend in Oct and Nov, and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  Access to the property would be easy from Osakajokoen Station.  It takes 5min on foot from the station.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  Check-in and out times 14:00/12:00  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on or Agoda
