Kansai Airport Washington Hotel (Rinkuoraikita, Japan)

4 Case Rating


Location

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.

Room

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.

Facilities

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.

Staff

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...
