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

Booked this hotel only because of ONE reason... great location. Did not expect much from the services anyway.... We did request for a non-smoking room when making the reservation, however, we were given a 'non-smoking' room (only with the ashtray taken away ??!). The room smelled obviously a SMOKING room before ! We asked for another room but they said... More

Bad manners receptionist, worst Japanese girl ever that I met. Ruin the Japanese good service name!!!! Lost my branded shirt in the room and they claimed that it's NOT their responsibilities. Irresponsible people! Crushed the image of saying Japanese has good service

We were in Osaka over the New Year holiday. The Osaka Villa Fontaine is very convenient, and is just a short walk from the Shinsaibashi station. Come out from exit no 8. Rooms are generally small, but clean as always (we had stayed at the Tokyo Villa Fontaine in the previous years). Breakfast was sufficient though it was the same... More
