Rihga Royal Hotel Review

Built in the 1930s, the well-established Rihga Royal is where the royal family stays when visiting Osaka. The place contains more than 20 restaurants, bars, and karaoke rooms, and no fewer than 60 shops—in addition to more than 1,000 rooms and suites. The West Wing has standard rooms for business travelers, the Tower Wing standard and executive floors. Each executive floor has a nature theme, so depending on your mood stay on the forest, sky, flower, or sea floors. A stay in the VIP tower means free access to the swimming club's two rooftop pools (other guests pay ¥2,000). A shuttle bus drops you off at the Umeda and Yodoya-bashi stations.
