InterContinental Hotel Osaka


This is one of the best in Osaka.  Once we entered the hotel, we almost forgot we were in Osaka.  It’s like you’re in another world.  If this is your fist time visiting Oksaka, I would highly recommend it.  Perhaps, if you are looking for luxury hotels in Osaka, you should stay here.  It seems that there are many local people staying at the hotel to refresh.  The ambience is tranquil, sophisticated, and lively.  The hotel would be great for couples, family, groups, or solo travelers.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with an access to the club lounge.  Once we arrived at the lobby on 20F, staff escorted us to the lounge on 28F to check in.  It is open from 7:00-22:00.  There are 4 times food presentations here.  Breakfast from 7:00-11:00, Afternoon Tea from 14:00-16:30, Evening Cocktail from 17:30-19:30, Night Cap from 19:30-22:00.  *A minimum age requirement of 13 applies after 17:30.  The food presentation was very nice.  It couldn’t be better if you chill out at the property until check-out time.  Then a room is spacious, functional, and stylish.  Facilities tend to be the latest as it opened in June 2013.  All of the amenities were taken care of including enough toiletries, a coffee machine with capsules, welcome fruit, sweets, bottled water, yukatas, bathrobes, and tea bags, etc.  There are Agraria amenities in the bathroom.  You can travel light.  Also a BOSE speaker, a Blu-Ray player, and a humidifier were placed in our room.  Wifi reception was excellent.  Room service is available for 24H.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Then this is child-friendly.  If you bring small kids, the property would be very comfortable.  Staff can provide pajamas, slippers, toothbrushes, and baby cribs, etc., if you request.  Then bicycles are available for free.  If the weather is fine, you should go cycling around Osaka City, but you must be careful as there are many cars and bikes.  Then there is a nice swimming pool, jacuzzi, gym, and public baths in-house.  All of them are available for free.  The swimming pool is open from 7:00-22:00.  The gym is open for 24H.  The public baths are open from 7:00-22:00.  They are not hot spring, though.  Then swimwear, swimcaps, swim goggles, sportwear, and running shoes, etc., are available for borrowing.  You wouldn’t need to bring your own.  *Please note that you need to check minimum age requirement if you use the above facilities with children.  Also if you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the public bathing area.  Then the property is perfect universal design.  There are some rooms for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then all staff tends to be sophisticated, but they often look busy.  Overall, the property has good value for money if compared to St. Regis Osaka or Conrad Osaka.  The service would be absolutory up to the price paid.  Then the location is very convenient, just 5min walk from Osaka Station or Umeda Station.  It takes around 10min by TAXI from Shin-Osaka Station.  It costs 1,200JPY.  Anyway the best season to stay in Osaka would be in spring or fall.  The weather is just nice, not so hot, and not so cold.  At last, if you want to chill out at the hotel 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, weekends in Oct and Nov, and the end of year and New Year holiday.  The property would be very crowded during those periods more than you expect.  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 15:00/11:00  Check Availability and Pricing for the hotel on or Agoda
