The room freshness is Ok. Bed is Ok. Reception service is Ok. If I'm not wrong, I need to go downstair to use the Internet (with their PC). Breakfast is so so (but at least the breakfast is free for my room price!). The location is not a nice one (nothing around the hotel).

The location is not that great since I have to take another stop to Namba, however, the hotel staff are friendly and helpful for all assistances. We did enjoyed staying for 3nights. The only suggestion is to have wifi in room due to now most of guest have table devices rater than pc.

This is a chain hotel. This is a business hotel. This is an average hotel. If you look for something cheap (~6000 yens/night for semi-double room), with okay location (one station away from Namba, or 15 minutes walk from Namba station where you can take the Airport shuttle, JR or Subway), full set of amenities, and with breakfast (simple western...
