Hotel Review: Conrad Osaka

Welcome to Conrad Osaka – your address in the sky!

That tagline is very apt because every first time visitor to this hotel will certainly be astonished and mesmerized by the views from the sky high hotel lobby!

The Conrad Osaka is truly a luxury hotel that deserves every award it has won. It is undoubtedly one of the finest in the city. We were fortunate enough to have over a week at this hotel over two stays hence we got to experience two different room categories.

The hotel is directly connected to the Higobashi subway station hence is very convenient for every business or leisure traveler alike. It is located closed to the Umeda business district hence it might not be as ‘exciting’ or ‘happening’ as the Shinsaibashi or Dotonbori area for those coming to Osaka or vacations, the level of service that you would experience here is definitely worth that short subway ride.

All guests arrive on the ground floor and is welcomed by a member of the bell team who is there to assist with luaggage. Guests are then directed to Level 40 where the hotel lobby is located.

As soon as you walk out the elevators on Level 40, you are greeted by the amazing views of Osaka and some gorgeous art sculptures.

During our first stay, we were upgraded to a King Premium View room.

The Executive Lounge on Level 39 and is a great place to just chill and take in the views of the city. The lounge is not open until noon therefore eligible guests are invited to have breakfasts at the main restaurant.

Afternoon Tea and Evening Cocktail sessions were very busy during our trip but they were never a shortage of food or drinks at the lounge as both are quite elaborate affairs.

The hotel has a very well equipped fitness centre and a Japanese bath for guests to relax after a long day in meetings or sightseeing.

Breakfast at the main restaurant every morning is an elaborate affair too. They would always have a daily special such as a Truffle Omellete or a Osakan-styled Eggs Benedict. The daily Roast Prime Beef is simply to die for!

On our second stay, we were upgraded to a Corner King Room which was massive by any Japanese hotel standard and perhaps it was even larger than a typical Japanese residential apartment!
