This is a traditional Japanese ryokan style hotel so be prepared that the service and rooms are not like a traditional western style hotel. They are very friendly and speak good English are are willing to help you out as necessary. The location is perfect, as it is in walking distance to many good restaurants and shopping. It is also...

The room service is so nice. They help you setup your bed and refill anything that you are missing or not missing lol. I said that is because we still have tooth brush but they gave us more. If you ever get a chance to come to Osaka you have to stay in this hotel.

Yamatoya Honten is very close to the night life district of Osaka. Sitting on a river across from a giant crab and neon lights will remind you of that. However, the hotel itself is quite nice and clean and not very far from the nearest subway stop. The room itself was quite spacious and the room we had (top floor)... More

We took 2 rooms for five of us. Generally, the rooms are clean and comfortable. Japanese snacks and tea are always replenished. Then ensuite bathroom room is very small but well equipped with a mini bathtub, WC and sink. Toothbrush and toothpaste are provided. There is an in-house onsen at the basement for separate genders. Small but good enough. Bathrobe... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Yamatoya honten has a really great location which is nearby the shopping street of doutonbori and shinsaibashi. Though the room was very small to fit in 4 of us but it's still a delighted stay :) They do have public japanese bath at the basement, not a real onsen it's just normal hot bath,... More

The hotel is situated really close to the entrance of Dotonburi street so its close to alot of really good places to eat, and the best Round 1 entertainment plaza ever in the world. Going to the train station is really close, and to get to a JR station is a 13 minute walk through Namba Walk (a nice underground... More

The ryokan is located at a good location across the road to Dotonburi and along the river. It is also pretty near to the train stations. There are lots of restaurants around the area and also shopping streets. Don Quitote is just further down the river..and if you walk even further, you will see the all famous Glico sign.. We... More

on the bright side, it has a great location - near dotonbori and subway stations like nipponbashi and namba station. i would also give credit for the complimentary japanese snacks in the room that are topped up on daily basis. downside though, i actually expect the staff to be a little more english-literate, given that they actually have a decent...

Used this ryokan for a few nights at the end of two weeks in Japan. Eight mat room is spacious by Japanese standards and quite comfortable. However there were no seat backs for the floor cushions which is usually supplied in ryokan rooms. Location is excellent next to Nihonbashi at the end of Doutonburi Street. A subway train station is... More
