This is a nice, clean hotel with friendly service and a pretty good breakfast buffet. It's about 15 minutes on the express train to Umeda station. Located in a residential neighborhood. There are local restaurants and shops within a 10 minute walk. We got this hotel on the cheap and it was totally worth it. This hotel in central Osaka... More

Unlike the usual Japanese style (read: small) room, Novotel Koshien Osaka West's is very spacious. The location is only 2-3 minutes away from the rail station, yet quiet in the evening. Breakfast buffet selection is good, enough variety and healthy selections. Had very good deal with Accor Advantage club rate. The room also provides simple guide for the area (including... More

The crew is very helpful. It's a little too far from downtown Osaka, a 25 minute train ride, but close to the Koshien Baseball Stadium. Definitively not cheap, but worthy the price. The breakfast is distinguished, I loved it. Room is spacious, confortable and clean. I had a great time there.

You have to be careful because on the web site, it is mentionned that you can access the hotel by Limousine bus. this is not true if you arrive or leave from kansai airport. From the htel, you first have to take the train and then the Limousine Bus. This is not very convenient. The restaurant (buffet and breakfast) is... More

The Novotel had decent beds , adequate rooms, and very basic, small bathrooms. On the plus side, it had a lovely bar with decent cocktails. On the negative side, food was very limited at this hotel and staff was very hard to communicate with. The buffet restaurant was passable but rarely seemed to be open when we needed food. Their...

This was a typical Novotel chain hotel - comfy rooms, soft mattress, good heating and air con, and a pretty good western breakfast. Service was brisk and efficient. It is a 10 minute canter from the railway station on a straight road, so not so close. Best to take a taxi from the airport when arriving here first time. Osaka... More
