Excellent service, staff are very very kind and helpful for everything. Give us best suggestions for traveling, how to take train or bus, etc.. Room are tidy and clean, have everything you need, our room gets a bit warm, we did ask the front desk to help open the windows. Great location, literally right next to the train station- Higobashi. Got 7-11/ Starbucks downstairs. If we come back, definitely stay here again.

A taste of comfort, luxury and accesability.”

We had an amazing stay at RIHGA place during our trip to Osaka Japan. The place is accesable and very near Higobashi station. The interior of the room is very pleasant and comfortable and gives you a homey feel. They did a great job on the renovation of the hotel. They gives you quality service and luxury for a reasonable price. We want to go back and stay in this same hotel ehen we go back to Osaka.

Quiet yet approachable place ”

If you are looking for a place that is less crowded and quiet but is still close to “Namba” which is the main touristy area of Osaka, I highly recommend this hotel. The image and expectation I had for the country has more of a safe and walkable vibe rather than “the CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS” vibe so if youre looking for the former then i think this place is for you. Some reviews say that this place has some hygiene issues, such as smoking etc, but that wasnt a problem for me. Fyi I HATE the smell of cigarette and cigar and am very sensitive to that kind of smell. Somehow this review ended up as me raving about the place but i just wanted to emphasize that i am not related to the hotel whatsoever. In fact, i had low expectation of it. Anyways, i highly recommend the hotel id even stay here again if i get a chance

Great location”

This hotel is small but it is located at a strategic location. There's a cafe at the basement, a laundry area and a 24hr convenience store, located at the basement of the hotel. The staff were well versed in english and they did a good job in the checking in and out. It was a smooth and efficient process. It's only a 3-5mins walk to the nearest JR subway station. Hence, accessibility wise, very good. No worries if the hotel doesn't have breakfast as there's a ramen stall just opposite the hotel. It's a quiet place, not much of a shopping area nearby. The room is clean but the pillow is small and not fluffy, advisable to bring extra pillows or request for more.

Great value at central location at Osaka”

This Rihga hotel provides a great value for money. I found a very low rate for a one night stay. Rooms are ok, around 17m², normally two beds. Bathroom is small but also ok, for Japanese standards. Beds are harder than usual for westerns, but still manageable. Forget breakfast at the hotel, go to the Starbucks right across the street. No parking lot, though, but there is an underground Times 24 right on the corner to the left, in the middle of the street (around ¥1,100 overnight). Overall, amazing rates for a good stay! More than fair!
