Next to the subway station. Central place, small room (affordable for a solo traveller for a couple of days). I liked the hot baths. Breakfast was OK but the elevators were overcrowded during peak hours...

Perfect location with 2 subway stations just right there in front of the hotel. Rooms were clean but EXTREMELY small and the barroom very narrow and low ceilings. If you open your luggage no space to walk around the bed or open the bathroom door. They have a good Onsen and a great rooftop restaurant with good food and GREAT... More

The rooms are fine but they are too small. There was no room for 2 suitcases so we had to clamber over each other to move around. Having said that, the room was clean, the amenities were good and the location (outside one subway station & 6/7 mins on foot to another) was excellent. We barely spent any time in... More

The room was so tight and small that it was nearly impossible for two (not large!) adults to move around. We were walking all over our suitcases (nowhere to put those) and the end and each other. Also, the room was very stuffy and hot but there was so way to control the AC. The hotel controls it centrally and... More

The hotel has great location. Its entrance is in front of exit 3 of the Higobashi subway station. The rooms are small (usual japanese standard) and the usual amenities of japanese standards (bed room slippers, tea set, toiletries, etc). The staff was very helpful (usual japanese standard). The bed is not comfortable, very hard and the pillow is flat (like... More

The room is quite small but workable. The biggest downside for us was the very hard bed and flimsy pillows. The location is good. We traveled to Osaka by bullet train and it was about 2000¥ in a cab to the hotel. Easy to get on the subway and hit up some other areas of Osaka. Good nightlife within walking... More

The room size is simply ridiculous for what I paid. The double bed was 1.4 meters wide. It is worth $100, only because the locations is quite central. If you are paying more, then change your booking now!

The hotel is indeed connected to the subway but it's a good 3 to 4 flights of stairs up. No joke with luggage. The surroundings aren't exciting with nothing to see and hardly anything to eat. The staff, for Japanese standards, were terrible. The front desk staff were indifferent and largely lacked any interest in guests. Long queue to check-in... More

Great attention to detail and rooms have everything you could need or expect in a hotel room but very small compact rooms (makes a college room seem spacious!). Double rooms are the same size as single. Small nice onsen in hotel.

stayed here 3 nights for our Osaka/Kyoto trip. good points first: - rooms are clean and functional. rooms are kept clean daily by a great and friendly cleaning staff - very convenient as this is a few steps away from the yotsubashi line if you wanted to go to osaka or dotonbori. - express check-in/out was also great as you...
