In Osaka’s lively shopping neighborhood, Umeda, the Ritz-Carlton Osaka is a fancy five-star retreat on a grand scale. The 292 rooms are elegantly decked out with dark wood furnishings, creamy walls and plush curtains, and the large room count means there are plenty of on-site amenities for both the corporate crowd and well-heeled weekenders. Choose among four restaurants and two bars, including the Michelin-starred La Baie, which serves delicate French dishes, and Hanagatami, a Japanese spot that specializes in teppan, tempura and sushi. Retire to the bar after dinner to sip a malt whiskey from the 150-strong list. Guests have access to the fitness center (which has a heated indoor pool, a sauna and a gym), and a 24-hour business center. Massages and facials using products from high-end Swiss brand La Prairie are available.
In the Area
Osaka is a modern metropolis with a skyscraper-studded skyline and elevated highways. The city’s highlights include the Osaka Castle and the surrounding park, the Osaka Museum of History and the lively Dotonbori area and Nakanoshima Park. For a spot of traditional Japanese culture, take in a performance at Osaka’s Shochiku-za Theater. For food there’s the basement-level Robatayaki Isaribi, which is reached via stairs in front of a liquor store and serves meat, seafood and veggies fresh off the grill, or Chibo, a canalside spot that specializes in Japanese pancakes.

From the moment the taxi doors opened we were impressed - warm greeting; speedy check in and straight up to you room . I am not usually a fan of a more classic hotel but I really loved it here . The room was also well appointed and spotless and new classic in style . Good size bathroom and beautiful bedlinen and comfortable pillows . Plus there is a turn down service in the evening and they go as far as tidying up your clothes - loved it . Excellent gym with guys to stretch you as well . Plus don’t miss out on the bakery - pure heaven !
Position is perfect close enough to the station and main shopping area without being in noisy traffic .
