The best part of this place for me was the location near Nippombashi and walking distance to Namba Station. The hotel is also right at the Nippombashi entrance of Dotonbori street as well as walking distance to Kuromon market. We got a nice room (622) facing the river and Dotonbouri street. The place looks a littlw worn but it was... More

This was our first experience of a traditional Japanese style accommodation. Our room also had a TV. The public bath is located in the basement and was a great experience after a full day of walking and exploring the city. Service was very polite and helpful. Great location for the Dotonbori along the river. Also convenient for train station.

Right on the Doronburi river, it is near the train station, easy to find and surrounded by restaurants, kareoke bars, a cat café shops and lots of other things to do. Whilst in Osaka do try kushikatsu, fried things on sticks. The fried cheese is best. Beautiful hotel, spacious with its own baths(onsen) downstairs.

As others pointed out, hotel is only 5 mins walk from Nipponbashi and located along the Dotonbori river. Got a Japanese style room with river view, room is super clean as you might have come to expect from Japanese Ryokan. Size is on the small size but that also, is to be expected for Japan.

Hotel is located than 5mins walk from Nipponbashi subway station, and Kuromon market. It is beside Dontoburi so easy access for food and shopping. We stayed on the 9th floor with the view of the Dontoburi river. Good Wifi coverage in room and lobby.

Very close to shinsibashi and dotonbori, about 15 mins walk to Osaka castle (or 680 yen ride by taxi). The staff were helpful and spoke reasonable English to communicate. Rooms were clean and they did clean even though we left the room past cleaning hours
