Kansai Airport Washington Hotel (Rinkuoraikita, Japan)

4 Case Rating


Hotel is located just across the bridge from Kansai Airport. There is a free shuttle which takes 10 minutes. Please see photo for connection times as of October 2016. However if you miss these times, the train station: Rinku Town is 5 minutes walk away & costs 350 yen to the airport. For Osaka it take 1.5 hours by train from this station.


The cosy non smoking room on the 9th floor offered 2 double bed each with one pillow and a central bed side table in centre. Here, built into back wall is a alarm clock and convenient light control system with buttons for lights around . Typical Japanese style.
There is also a phone and some tissues with buttons for massage and alarm etc.

To the side of the bed is a large window which you can open for fresh air and is also a emergency exit. It’s a little noisy though. There is also touch screen controls on an AC unit and air humidifier machine. Facing the bed is also a cabinet with a very small TV on top maybe 13″- all Japanese but believe for a 1000y you can buy various VOD movie packages. Otherwise normally you won’t hear anything in English , BBC news for instance is dubbed. There is also a small fridge , kettle and some desk space to work with lamps and a mirror. Luggage rack at end that has some drawers with hotel
Pyjamas. The room also has a tall mirror.
The bathroom was of ok size for Japan offering the standard small deep bath and shower combo, wash let and a very good selection of amenities that include Shisedo shampoo, conditioner and body soap. Plus dental kits, shaved sets, brush and vanity sets.
Overall the room had firm but comfy beds & as I was on my own I used both pillows which made comfort better as personally think one pillow is not enough. Overall i found the room typical Japanese business, slightly dull but actually cosy and comfortable.


Wifi is available but was so slow in the evening, like dial up. It is secure but I think everyone is building is using it so speed is slow- you tube would not even load up. It was better at 530am.
There are two computers in lobby to rent.
Catering wise there is a buffet restaurant both for dinner & breakfast but did not try – see photo for prices.
There is also massage service which is 5000y for 40 min , which is way too expensive for me but can be arranged in you room it appeared.
Each floor offers vending machines and on the 2nd floor -a very convenient 24 hour family mart that has snack items, some meals and even muni stationary. Handy if you arrive late like I did.
I don’t believe there is any leisure facilities at least no signage for anything.


As always in Japan super efficient fast check – in. Clear with all information and overall pleasant.
As summary a great place to stay between flights with easy access to the train station of you need to go somewhere else or the airport. But they do offer a frequent bus transfer service. Wifi was just the weakness.

The Verdict Is...
