Step into the lobby of a Hotel Monterey and you could be forgiven for thinking you’d travelled to another country or, indeed, another time. This small Japanese chain of hotels can be found across Japan in the country’s major cities, but their raison d’être is to capture the architecture and atmosphere of Renaissance Europe. Established in 1986, the Hotel Monterey Group seeks to embody the romance, history and charm that you might find in a stately home in France, England or Italy and bring it to modern-day Japan.
Time-Honoured Tradition Meets Modern Convenience
The decor and features may look authentically old-fashioned, but Hotel Monterey accommodation has all the modern amenities you’d expect from a purpose-built, contemporary hotel, whether you’re a business traveller, leisure guest, or enjoying the hotel’s unique atmosphere for a function or conference.
You have a wide choice of accommodation, from standard to superior, with layouts suitable for up to six guests. Every room is equipped with free WiFi and wired internet, large flatscreen TV, fridge, minibar and coffee maker. And with premium bedding and a pillow menu to choose from, you’ll be sure to settle in for a good night’s sleep. Additional facilities offered by Hotel Monterey hotels in Osaka include full-service spas, meeting rooms and restaurants offering a range of international cuisines. For those seeking out the perfect Osaka wedding venue, there are even authentically designed chapels and elegant banqueting rooms styled to match each hotel’s era.
What to Do in Central Osaka
Hotel Monterey accommodation is conveniently situated in the city centre, so you can step out to explore Osaka with ease. To the south of the centre is Osaka’s famous food district, Dotonbori, where you can indulge in your favourite dishes and discover new tastes. To the west, in the Bay Area, is one of Japan’s most popular tourist destinations – Universal Studios Japan – and the fascinating underwater world of Osaka Aquarium.
To complement the antique allure of your Hotel Monterey, be sure to visit Osaka Castle and sacred sites across the city such as Shitennoji Temple, so you can also discover the rich heritage of Osaka.
