Perfect location on a full stomach before conveniently venturing out into Kansai Area or even just shopping in Osaka. The subway stop is just a stone's throw away. Upon exiting the hotel you are right smack in the shopping arcade. To the right of the hotel is even an Osaka based shoe store( shoes made in Japan!) w a most... More

This hotel is perfect for traveler, small but clean and comfy. Located close to shopping center in Shinsaibashi, 10 minutes walk to the famous Gligo running man and 15 minutes walk from Namba station which has Nankai Express train to Kansai Airport. Staff are helpful and the hotel provides free breakfast for every guest.

A difficult location to find as the signage is small, but 5 minute walk from the subway and 20 paces from the ginza. The room is typically small, but room enough for two. No wireless in the room. Breakfast is included, but elected to hit one of the numerous bakeries located in the ginza. Great location at an affordable price.... More

Enjoyed our stay in this hotel for the 2nd time. Good location, value for money, modest Japanese and continental breakfast, courteous staff, what else can you ask for...though rooms are quite small which is normal in Japan. Looking forward to my 3rd visit

stayed here for a night and had no problems. room has a tv, humidifier, AC, comfy bed, shampoo and conditioner that felt really great in the hair after use. Westerners might have a hard time fitting themselves in the bathroom but for Asians, no problem. WIFI in the lobby only, which is a downside. Breakfast was alright, simple and basic.

I was grateful I was only staying the one night. I think people have been overly lenient on rating this hotel and this comes from someone who usually thinks most people are being far too picky when they leave reviews on Tripadvisor! It was fine for one night but the room was reminscent of a ship cabin and a cramped... More

雖然舊了點,不過整理的很乾淨。地點很好,就在商店街。服務人員也都有基本英語能力,不難溝通。如果要深入逛心齋橋附近又有預算限制,是個可以考慮的旅館。 In my opinion, It's worthy to stay in this hotel due to my budget limitation. With good service and great location although it may appeal a little old for some people.

Hotel Villa Fontaine Shinsaibashi, Osaka Stayed here for the 2nd time last week, was here last year too. This time, the room was cleaner and more quietly (room 608), its bigger than room 603, both are relax-rooms. Relax-room is the same as Standard-room, except you will have an extra massage-chair or foot-massage machine. The location is the best, close to... More

I agree with all other reviewers -- this place is about (and maybe only about) location. Location: It's right on Shinsaibashi, the busiest covered shopping street at the heart of Osaka. The hotel is 3 minutes' walk from exit #1 (and 1 minute walk via the basement of a commercial building, if you know the short cut). You can walk... More

We didn’t do any research on this hotel prior to staying. We only made a quick check on its location on our mobile after a local agent offered a good rate during a travel fair. It seemed that its location near Shinsaibashi train station is a great selling point. We landed in Itami Airport from Chitose and took the Limousine... More
