Travel Blogs from Osaka
Heute haben wir uns erst mal ein super gutes Frühstück gegönnt. Ich habe u.a. kishimen きしめん gefuttert, eine typische Speise aus Nagoya: Bandnudeln in einer stark gewürzten Suppe.
Nach dem Auschecken sind wir zu Noritaka Gardens ノリタケの ;森 gefahren. Dort haben sie sooooo schönes …
Last night we took the Shinkansin (the bullet train) from Tokyo to Osaka, a fast and comfortable trip.
Before leaving I spent the day in the neighborhood of Roppongi visiting the art triangle of the Mori Art Museum, the National Art Center of Tokyo and the Suntory Museum of Art. I also did some window shopping and I think I have an answer …
Today's goal is taking the Shinkansen train or Bullet train to Osaka. We bid our hotel in Tokyo a fond farewell Tuesday morning at about 8:30am, bowing to their staff in appreciation for the last time. We went through one entrance to our Shimbashi station, looked around, rethought our move and went back out to return through the main entrance (with …
It's been a while since I've written because Leila has been here! It's been wonderful to have a familiar face in my new home, and the timing of her visit was perfect. I had a month to explore on my own, get settled, meet friends and travel a bit around the prefecture. She arrived during the week and I met her in Osaka on Friday September 15th. I …
... other but hand to hand, stick to stick, for quite a time. A great start. I got to the castle keep and was footsore so took a rest and started updating yesterday's blog. A Japanese man wandered up and chattered at me. I didn't understand and he slipped into English; it turned out he wanted to recommend the garden I was near, but I'd seen it. The picture of the keep reflecting on the water yesterday is from there, it really is the spot to see Osaka castle from. He used to make ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Osaka
We are here in Osaka for several weeks this year, all the time in the Hilton Hotel.
Mi ha deluso: siamo arrivati a mezzogiorno e mezzo ed abbiamo dovuto attendere oltre un ora la stanza. Avevo scelto questo hotel anche perchè provvisto di cassetta di sicurezza in camera (sul sito è scritto che tutte le camere sono dotate di tale servizio) mentre la mia ne era sprovvista; la connessione ad internet in stanza e' molto costosa mentre in altri hotel di pari livello (Il Granvia ad es.) è assolutamente gratuita; il lume del comodino non ha mai funzionato; la penna in camera era rotta...
We stayed for two nights at the Hilton Osaka just after arriving from London, and we found the hotel absolutely amazing. We stayed in a king executive room on the 30th floor. The view was absolutely stunning, and the room itself truly beautiful and excellent value for money. The executive club offered complimentary breakfast, which we did not have the courage to wake up for (blame the jetlag!), all day coffee, soft drinks, and biscuits, and evening cocktails and canapes which were probably the best and most original I have ever enjoyed in a hotel executive club. During the trip, we stayed in other luxury hotels, including an executive room in a Westin (much less good) and we were overwhelmed by the quality of the service and amenities at the Hilton Osaka. The whole staff and management deserve high praise for what they manage to offer customers.
Over priced but great location
We booked our rooms over the internet on the Hilton website. Size of room ok for Japanese standard, but deco and fittings look a bit old and tiresome. Not the best Hilton offers. Price a bit steep and not what I would pay for. On the up side, the location is superb and staff were both professional and helpful. All spoke great English and so was able to answer a lot of our questions.
Great Service. Excellent Location.
This is a perfect business hotel. The variety of restaurants is superb. The service is absolutely excellent. Everyone speaks good English and bends over backwards to help. The location is very good too -- right across from the JR Station, where you can catch a train to Kyoto and many local destinations.
The hotel is about 10 minute drive from Shinsai-bashi, the entertainment district of Osaka. So, if you want to be closer to the nightlife, the Hilton might not be as convenient.
Good Service and Quiet
Stayed with my daughter at the hotel and we enjoyed the hotel very much. Service was excellent - e.g. one of the desk lamps was broken and we called to get it repaired - less than a minute later someone knocked on the door and the lamped was repaired. Leaving the room the electrician excused for the error happend and wished us a further pleasant stay. Room very tidy and clean, cleaners very friendly and for the first night a courtesy bottle of water. For Japanese standards a rather big room !
Stayed at the Hilton Osaka for 4 nights over Christmas 2005. Our flight arrived at Kansai 7 am and we took the Limousine Bus to the hotel and arrived at about 9.30 am due to heavy traffic.
The Osaka Hilton enjoys a very central location in Osaka opposite of JR Osaka Station which make it very convenient for travellers and as a starting point for sightseeing tours even to Kyoto which you can reach by train in 40 minutes.
Stayed here for four nights at the end of a tiring trip around southern Japan. Excellent service from the minute I stepped onto the premises. Stayed on the executive level as that was the most reasonable rate and couldn't have asked for more. Very easy to find hotel from Osaka station with other subway stations near or under hotel. Remember there are two main stations in Osaka. Shin-Osaka and Osaka station. This hotel is opposite Osaka station.
