The Ritz-Carlton, Osaka

The height of luxury in uptown Osaka
Located in Osaka’s plush Nishi-Umeda district, The Ritz-Carlton, Osaka exudes luxury and sophistication from the moment you step through its doors.

From the outside, the hotel blends in seamlessly with the other modern and sleek high-rise buildings in this fashionable shopping and business area. But once inside, you will be wowed strolling through the wood-paneled corridors adorned with antiques and fine art, before entering the spellbinding lobby based on the living room of an 18th-century Georgian manor house.

This classic, noble English aesthetic runs through every facet of the hotel, from the stylish ground-floor boutiques and lobby lounge up to the guest rooms and club-level suites.

The hotel lacks none of the modern conveniences however; it has every facility of a high-end luxury hotel, but with masses of timeless charm, elegance and attention to detail, all conveniently located within easy walking distance of Osaka station.
