The hotel is located very close to the shin-osaka station but the hotel and the room itself are very small and narrow keeping some good standards in terms of cleanliness and amenities. The receptionists didn't speak good English and that was a minus

As the last hotel we're staying during our trip in Japan, we're looking for a pleasant hotel to stay but we didn't have budget left for a 5-star hotel. We went for Via Inn as it seems to have a better standard (looking at the website) compared to its business hotel counterparts. We weren't mistaken. The room is modernly decorated,... More

Good location, just 5min walk from Shin-Osaka JR Station. Room is really small, but very clean. Good service provided by the staff. Our room had the view of the Shinkansen, but good thing the hotel had the sound proof shield.

Via Inn in Osaka is a nice Hotel, not far from Station. The rooms are small, but there is all. Extremely clean. The hotel has all the comforts: good wifi, comfortable bed, clean and with good breakfast included. Inside the same building there is a shop like 7/11, but better where you can buy food, cigarettes and all you need.... More

Of the six hotels/inns that we stayed in during our recent 2-week Japan holiday, Via Inn Shin-Osaka was the property that I had the least expectations yet yielded the best return. We were to arrive at Kansai Int'l late at night and were scheduled to catch a Shinkansen to Tokyo early the following day. So we needed a room near... More

We arrived in Tokyo in the morning and took the Shinkansen bullet train to Shin-Osaka. (approx 3.5 hours) and SHIN before a city's name Shinagawa, Shin Fuji, Shin Osaka simply means that that is the station where the SHINkansen stops. From all these stations you can use the normal trains or metro or buses. Now, as we only stayed in... More

This hotel is a nice place to stay if you are arriving in Osaka on the bullet train. It is close to the train station and convenient to Osaka on the JR. It is clean with free internet and quiet, though near the station. Family Mart is right across the street. We were able to do a side trip to... More

I recently stayed here for 2 nights and was very satisfied with the hotel. I chose it because I was travelling to and from via the bullet train and wanted a hotel close to Shin-osaka station so I could drop off my luggage before sightseeing. The Via-inn is a few minutes walk from the Higashi (East) exit of the station... More
