Overview

Elegant five-star retreat with a Michelin-starred restaurant in Osaka’s lively Umeda shopping neighborhood

The Lowdown

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.

Beautiful hotel, awesome service, large rooms, comfortable bed, great breakfast buffet, short walk to JR Osaka Station and great restaurants. Concierge staff very helpful and courteous. Everything that I expected from a Ritz-Carlton hotel.

Most memorable stay at the Ritz-Carlton Osaka
Reviewed 3 days ago

My wife and I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton, Osaka for about 4 days in March 2019. It surpassed all our expectations in terms of comfort and service. The service staff at the Ritz, especially the concierge team, went over and beyond to make us feel welcomes and attended to our needs with genuine sincerity. I would highly recommend staying at the Ritz-Carlton, Osaka. Although the cost is higher, the amount of help and assistance that they give to guests to make their time in Osaka memorable is immeasurable. Apart from the great service, the hotel is also conveniently located near different subway lines such as the Osaka Station and Shin-osaka Stations.

All the staff at the Ritz Carlton in Osaka were extremely friendly and helpful...many times coming up to me and asking if I needed help (they could tell I wasn't sure where to go!) The room was beautiful and had a great view, too!

Amazing rooms and decor!
