This hotel is right next to the Namba station, very convenient location for visitors from and to KIX, also just few minutes walks to the most famous Dotonbori/ Shisaibashi shopping area. Besides the clean and comfortable, one thing I felt surprised is that even though the hotel is at a corner of a main street, the traffic noise is totally... More

It was our first hotel in Japan, when reach Namba, found the hotel in few minutes. Located beside the hotel is 24 hours convenience store, so if you need a quick bite. Room is spacious with old TV and thick mattress on the floor (not tatami). Room is clean and no carpet. We had arranged with reception to get a... More

overall good value for price and quite spacious rooms (for Japan) the hotel is very well located, most highlights in walking distance or by train where the hotel just resides on the station. Regarding room and overall layout the hotel has seen better days.

Refreshing room layout - tatami area and a separate enclosed bed space. Fast and seamless check in and out process. Walking distance to the best local sento. The hotel is surrounded by so many eateries that it makes one become indecisive!

We stayed one night in Osaka and choose this hotel and their Japanese western room. The room is great with tatami style bed (two singles together) and Japanese style living room. Clean and spacious room. Location is right outside Osaka Namba station (key transit station), 5 minutes walk from all key shopping and restaurant areas. Given its price range we... More

Very happy with this hotel. Enjoyed the large Japanese style room. Staff very kind. Location good for Namba area. We were here for sumo wrestling tournament which was in easy walking distance. Fun to walk around the lively neighborhood in the evening.

First-time Japan visitor; we wanted a taste of tradition, but were anxious to dive straight into a traditional ryokan. Ryokan-hotel like the Ichiei was perfect find. English-speaking courteous and helpful staff. Just steps right out of the subway entrance. Couldn't find it at first. Hotel sign not too big. We were standing right in front of it :( Short walk...

I've booked this hotel Last Dec.'14. I am really happy with the hotel in terms of location although the front desk is not quite well versed in English proficiency but they try their best to address your concerns. From the airport to the hotel we took the airport limousine Namba OCAT with a price of 1000 yen approximately 50 mins... More

因為朋友在網路上訂購,帶著姑且一試的心情前往check in,沒想到房間大又舒適,地點非常好,備品充足並且很自在啊!大阪鬧區的好選擇~如果要住在難波可選擇這裡囉!!!! Must try their Japaneses style breakfast some other time. I will come again and choose this hotel to stay for sure.

If you really really want to stay at a Ryokan AND you have to do it in Osaka, then by all means stay here. Otherwise I would reconsider. My husband and I enjoyed the one night we stayed but wouldn't have wanted to stay longer. We did the 8 tatami mat room, which provides more space than a typical Western... More
