I stayed in this hotel in April 2014 for 2 nights. I fell in love with buffet breakfast immediately. Very high quality of breads and enjoyed home made soy bean drink particularly. Revisit in Feb 15, however, didn't enjoy much as i found out the bed is rather old and really uneasy to sleep on. I don't mind the old... More

I stayed in Hotel Claiton Shinosaka for 4 nights from November 15th to 19th,2014.No doubt the rooms are small but unique and clean.I have chosen this 3 stars hotel because Subway Station is situated just right in front of the hotel.It is easily to access Umeda-Osaka Station to go round and visit Kobe,Kyoto,Nara neighbourhood attractions.By subway only one stop away...

This Hotel is value for money. We stayed for 3 nights there. The location is wonderful, only 5 minutes walk from the Underground station. It is also centrally located, only few stops to Umeda, Namba, or Shinsaibashi. The staff was friendly and helpful. Wifi reception was good. We had a happy stay in Osaka.

We stayed here for 2 nights and to our surprise, this is the smallest room that we had stayed in so far. Besides small, the moment we stepped foot into the lobby, the cigarette smell was so strong. Apparently this is a hotel for business people. On the first night, my friend and I had a bad night because we... More

Second time at Hotel Claiton, and I was disappointed to find it has really gone downhill. The room smelt bad, the breakfast was gross, and the service was lacklustre, especially for Japan. They've also closed off the onsen to women - they previously had hours for both genders. This may have something to do with why the hotel is pretty... More

My second time staying at Claiton and the staff were wonderful as usual, no complaints about that. I booked a twin room this time round, compared to the semi double room the other time round and we were assigned a room on the top floor of the hotel. Despite being a twin room, it felt almost the same as the... More

I spent a week at this hotel in a single non-smoking room. Rooms are basic but fully functional and cleaned daily. Beeing there for turism i was in just to sleep so didn't really used any of the hotel facility, the onsen looked promising though. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only donwside is its location a bit far from... More

Good location near a metro station, just 1 stop from Shin-Osaka JR station. Wifi is fast and works everywhere, nice staff as well. Beware if you are about to book a smoking room like I did. I've been smoking for 10 years but the smell was extreme. The room literally smells like an ashtray. You do get used to it... More

The staff were helpful and friendly. My main issue was with the very odd smell in the room (coffee? Or mould?!) and the TINY bed and room in general. The location was pretty good and easy to get around. I'm glad we only stayed two nights though, any longer in that space would have made me too claustrophobic!!!! The bed... More

Stayed in a non-smoking room in June. Rooms were small, but in comparison to those that I have stayed in Tokyo - this was definitely more spacious. We had free wifi in the room we got and it was relatively fast! Room service was good as well and rooms were cleaned throughout the whole stay. Counter staff were helpful as... More
