The Ritz-Carlton Osaka

 

If you are looking for luxury hotels in Osaka, I would highly recommend it.  The property is like a museum.  We were so excited to explore in-house.  Everything, such as antique furniture, interior, decorations including masterpieces, etc., is top-notch, elegant, and luxurious.  It opened in 1997, but I never feel old-fashioned.  It would be much more sophisticated than before.  The ambiance would be lovely, classy, and serene.  The hotel would be great for couples, family, solo travelers, or business persons.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room on the club level with access to the club lounge on 34F.  We were escorted to the lounge and checked in while having afternoon tea & food.  That’s precious time.  Also, the club lounge has a variety of food presentations, such as breakfast from 7:00-10:00, lunch from 11:00-14:00, afternoon tea from 14:30-16:30, hors d’oeuvre from 17:00-19:30, and a nightcap from 20:00-22:00.  On top of that, after checking out, lunchtime is also available.  We almost spent time at the club lounge during our stay.  We fully enjoyed tasty food while overlooking Osaka city.  Then the room tends to be specious, functional, and cozy.  If you need an extra bed, you may want to request it in advance.  The view wouldn’t be special in the daytime, but the night view would be better.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, bathrobes, a coffee machine with capsules, welcome fruit, chocolates, bottled water, and a green tea set, etc.  There are Asprey amenities in the bathroom.  Room service is available for 24H.  There are two convenience stores nearby.  Then this is child-friendly.  Baby cots, strollers, and bed rails are available for borrowing if you request in advance.  Also, there is a nursing room.  Wifi reception was good in the property.  Then the hotel is a 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 there is an indoor swimming pool, a small gym, Jacuzzis, and saunas, etc., in-house.  The gym is open for 24H.  *A minimum age requirement of 16 applies.  The swimming pool is open from 6:00 to 22:00.  You can rent swimwear, sportswear, and running shoes, etc.  *If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the public bathing area.  Then there is an amazing bar for adults.  Don’t forget to visit here as they have a nice wine and cocktail list.  Then all staff is amazingly sophisticated.  If you want to experience a top notch-service in Japan, you should stay here.  Actually Osaka city is full of local color, but once you enter the property, it’s like you are in another world.  We almost forget we were in Osaka during our stay.  Overall the hotel has great cost performance if compared to other The Ritz Carlton in Kyoto, Tokyo, and Okinawa.  Anyway, there are many return guests staying all year round.  If you want to chill out here in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, weekends in June, Oct, Nov, and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  The hotel would be very crowded during the above periods more than you expect.  Then the best season to stay here would be except the summer season.  It’s very hot and humid in the summer.  As you can see, Osaka city is a huge concrete jungle.  You wouldn’t be able to walk outside in the daytime.  If you spend most of the time at the club lounge, there wouldn’t be problems.  The location is 10min walk from Osaka Station.  A free shuttle service is not available.  If you take a taxi, it costs around JPY700.  At last, don’t forget to try original local food, TAKOYAKI, and OKONOMIYAKI.  The staff has a map of recommended restaurants.  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 Booking.com or Agoda
