Stay in a Hotel With a Hot Spring or Large Bath When Visiting Osaka

Many people visit Japan's metropolis of Osaka for business or sightseeing. If staying the night in Osaka, you'll want to soothe your tired body in a hot spring or relax in a large bath on the hotel premises.

Many hotels in Osaka are equipped with hot springs and large baths. From reasonably-priced hotels to ones located near major sightseeing spots, and even hotels that make you feel slightly rich and special, the options are endless.

10 Osaka Hotels with Hot Springs and Large Baths

1. Dormy Inn Premium Osaka Kitahama: Offering Great Value at Reasonable Prices!

For people who are particular about their hotel's bath facilities but who also want to keep an eye on prices, we recommend Dormy Inn Premium Osaka Kitahama. It's conveniently located just one minute on foot from the Osaka Metro Line's Kitahama Station.

On the top floor (13th floor)—in addition to the indoor natural hot spring bath and single person bath (tsubo-buro)—there's also an open-air bath (rotemburo), high temperature sauna (for men), and a mist sauna (for women).

The large natural hot spring bath can be used from 15:00 to about 10:00. So even if you arrive at the hotel late due to work or sightseeing, you can still take a dip in the bath.

After soaking in the bath, it's a good idea to spend some relaxing time in the lounge (Yu agari dokoro) with its collection of 1,000 manga comic books.

All guest rooms feature Serta beds which offer high-quality sleep. Guests will also be happy to hear about the morning coffee service and the welcome drink service.

On the top floor, there's a pool. The bottom of the pool has an illustration of "bikkuriman," the famous character from Lotte's chocolate confectionery line who offers bonus seals (stickers) for customers. So you can enjoy this pool artwork together with the view of Osaka's scenery during your swim.

Also on the 17th of every month, a special event is held in which 17 ice cream are given to some lucky individuals.
