I must say that it was a very pleasant stay. Usually I am a bit reluctant to stay in highly pampered and super classy traditional 5-star hotels. But I think InterContinental provides luxury and
services while still keeping open, offering freedom and the ability to feel at home, even when you are not the person who lives in a suit all day and owns several companies.
I have been 5 times to Japan and it has been the biggest most spacious room I ever had, and it was on par on price with Kyoto's 4-star motel-like accomodation I stayed last year. So I can say I got what I paid for. First experience in a bathhouse was a very nice one, while modern it still kept the hinoki cups to wash one's body.
Cakes at STRESS are top notch, and despite their appearence are fairly affordable. Concierge and staff was also very friendly and always trying to help.
I would add some Melonpan and probably freshly squeezed orange juice, which is the part I think could be improved, though the selection was vast, with fruits, breads, etc. It felt more like a meal than a breakfast and most of times I ended up eating something very light for lunch.
Location was great, inside Grand Front Osaka full of restaurants, shops and easy to reach Osaka station without getting wet even in rainy days.
Hotel starts at floor 20 which means great views and reduced ground noise. [Menos]
