The Architectural Design of This Museum Hotel in Osaka Will Impress You
It is artsy and elegant at the same time.
Last December 1, 2019, the luxurious Hotel Royal Classic Osaka launched its grand opening on the site of the Shin Kabukiza Theater in Osaka, Japan. This newly found five-star museum hotel offers great accommodation stimulating our intellectual curiosity and sensibility.
Works by up-and-coming artist, Miwa Komatsu, and others are on display.
The hotel is directly connected to Osaka Metro Namba Station welcoming all guests with its fascinating structure designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma. The hotel offers accommodation with its 150 guest rooms and suites, restaurants & bars, banquet halls, and chapels that can be a great venue for various occasions such as sightseeing, business affairs, and bridal events.
The place is also notable for the 100 artworks displayed in significant areas inside the hotel. With the supervision of Junji Ito, appointed professor at Tokyo University of the Arts, and with the cooperation of the Whitestone Art Gallery, works by Yayoi Kusama, Nicolai Bergmann, Miwa Komatsu, and other beautiful pieces of artwork are set up on various indoor locations like the hotel reception, elevator hall, and guest rooms.
Nicolai Bergmann's work is arranged next to the hotel chapel.
This museum hotel was opened in pursuit of creating a hotel that can offer unprecedented value of meaning and beauty by inheriting the design of Shin Kabukiza Theater. The designers of the museum hotel also hope to contribute to the enhancement of the value of Minami Osaka and the development of an international tourist city. Osaka in a new style that is neither a business hotel nor a city hotel making this a unique and remarkable one.
