Swissotel Nankai Osaka

Since opened as the first “Swiss Hotel” in Japan in 2003, Swiss Hotel Nankai Osaka has been known as a hotel symbolizing Osaka Minami with its own high hospitality. As it is directly connected to Namba station, transportation is also satisfactory.

Meanwhile, since 2016, we have been involved in the occasional renewal of each area such as guest rooms (suite room, executive room, select room), atrium lounge, banquet floor, chapel, bridal salon and so on.

For the spatial design, added value according to the grade of each guest room and the gorgeousness unique to Osaka are required as well as the hotel identity, that is, the uniqueness of Swiss hotel. Therefore, to form the idea as understandable as possible, we are planning with the focus on 3 area; (1) the high-quality lifestyle of Swiss, (2) vitality as a hotel concept, and (3) contemporary design.

The guests visiting the Swiss hotel can spend their time with further agitation surrounded by up-tempo space color schemes and exciting furniture and artwork.
