Near the shopping area Dotombori, and some lovely narrow streets with cafes, bars and small shops. The ryokan is beside a bridge and a busy street. The main room of our suite has tatami mats, a low table and lots of cushions, a TV and a vase in the sacred alcove. Sunlight from the window is diffused by the white... More

Stayed here for one night in Osaka to experience a Japanese style traditional room. Booked a room with breakfast in the new wing of the hotel with a view of the canal. Breakfast was Japanese style and fantastic. Hotel close to Dotonburi and restaurants and shops. After coming back in the evening, our room was ready for sleeping with the... More

Great staff and hotel with excellent location. You can buy various day passes in the hotel, the staff even helped me book a taxi at 5:30 am. The reception is 24/7 unlike many hostels in Japan which is very helpful. The location is very convenient for you to have a good time in Osaka and travelling within the city. There... More

My adult daughter and I stayed here for four nights. Apparently according to the maid, we got one of three rooms with a sitting area with small table and two real chairs overlooking the canal. Some storage in that little area also. Otherwise, small but comfortable with futons set up on the floor every evening. Cannot use the fridge as... More

It's a great budget hotel/hostel. Staff is very helpful, but doesn't speak good English - or almost none, depends. Anyways, fully equipped to check in and out of the room. We book the room 6 months in advance, paid in advance as well, so our stay went very smooth with minimum communication. The room was clean but very dated. The... More

We have stayed at this hotel in April 2015 (7 persons). The room was basic - spacious enough for 5 futons and 2 beds, just enough for 1 night if not for the bed bugs (or some other type of bugs - not mosquitos though) that have severly bitten some of us while we were sleeping. The bathroom is quite... More

The room was only minimal size; however when you are only really sleeping and showering/bathing it is quite suitable. There was a fridge available; however remember to remove anything you have placed in there before the morning you leave as it is on a timer that locks at 6:30 am the day of departure. There is no kettle in the... More
