Situated in the heart of the sprawling city of Osaka, Japan’s second-largest city, the Hotel Nikko Osaka is a 4-star high-rise hotel offering contemporary rooms, a choice of restaurants and numerous on-site facilities and services.
If you’re looking to do some shopping in Osaka, the Nikko Hotel Osaka is the perfect base, as you’re just a few minutes’ walk from the shopping area of Shinsaibashi. Fewer than 20 minutes away by Metro are the Universal Studios Japan, the Kuromon Ichiba Market, Tsutenkaku Tower, the Osaka Aquarium, and the beautiful 16th century Osaka Castle, surrounded by a moat and a park of cherry blossom trees.
Enjoy all-day dining at Serena, which serves up dishes from all around the world, with both buffet and a la carte dining options. You can also have breakfast, lunch or dinner at Benkay, a Japanese restaurant serving a variety of authentic favourites. For Japanese cuisine with a touch of showmanship, you can try the teppanyaki at Icho, where chefs prepare Japanese black beef right in front of your eyes. The Nikko Hotel offers restaurants specialising in other cuisines too: sit down to authentic Cantonese dishes at Toh-Lee, or dine on gourmet French cuisine prepared with regional Japanese ingredients at Les Celebrites.
For an evening cocktail after a delicious dinner, or even if you’d just like to relax with some afternoon tea, the hotel’s four bars and lounges are sure to cater to your needs. Set in a high atrium on the first floor, with vast floor-to-ceiling windows, Fountain is a tea lounge offering hot beverages with a view. Equally as relaxing is the Lobby Lounge, where you can enjoy an afternoon tea beside the lined ginkgo trees of Midosuji. By night, you can visit the dark and welcoming Vol de Nuit for an evening drink, with a backdrop of soothing live piano, or look out over the night-time cityscape of Osaka in the Sky Cruiser bar lounge. Sky Cruiser is located 100 metres above the ground, on the hotel’s 31st floor, offering the ultimate views that will bring your night to a memorable close.
