Stayed in the hotel for two nights (2 adults & 2 kids). Location is fantastic - right across the street from Osaka Castle, so you can enjoy the view in the morning or in nights when the castle is lit-up. 10 minutes walking distance from a subway station to go anywhere in Osaka. The rooms are a big disappointment. They... More

Had a castle view room on the 11th floor when staying for business for two nights. Easy check in, and the room was decent if unspectacular. Clunky furniture, heavy fittings and key entry give the aging nature of the place away, but for a single man in Osaka on business it is fine. The nearest station is 10 minutes walk... More

I'm really happy with this hotel. I've been living in Japan for awhile and checking in can be pretty hit or miss if you're Japanese isn't the best, but all the staff here was great! Everyone was willing to give advice of where my girlfriend and I should go, how to get there, and a rough guess of the costs.... More

The hotel overlooks the Osaka Castle, and offers tremendous view; obviously convenient walking distance if you're visiting the castle. It's quite old and dated, and seems to have been quite a tourist hotel in its day. There was Engrish translation throughout hotel surprisingly. Our stay in early December had very few guests; maybe it's the slow season. Not a good... More

This visit was our 3rd time staying at KKR. We are lucky enough to have friends in Osaka who make the reservations for us. We visited during Easter which coincided with the peak cherry blossum bloom, which was spectacular and so close to KKR (across the road in the park surrounding Osaka-jo). Not a lot has changed in our 3... More

We arrived by train at Osaka Station at night, transfered to Morinomiya Station and then walked several blocks west to the KKR. We were really tired, but when we got to our rooms, looked north out of the windows and saw Osaka Castle lit up, it was magical. We were absolutely delighted. (See picture). We also had views of the... More

It is very good hotel famous because of it location. One side of the rooms are facing famous old castle and are bit expensive. Hotel have variety rooms rooms for couples, family and there are typical Japanese rooms where there are no high beds of chair. One has to sit down as per Japanese tradition. Rooms are well appointed and... More

Fantastic location, especially if you can time your trip to see the cherry blossoms in the park surrounding Osaka-jo (castle). The room is well setout for a disabled traveller - I had no problems in the room and I am in a wheelchair. There is a slope leading up to the motel - but nothing extreme. I would suggest calling...
