The hotel's location could not be better as the airport express, subway lines are located directly below Easy access to Takashimaya. There are also many food and beverage places located on the opposite street of the hotel. Walking distance to Dotonburi and Shinsaibashi.

IGreat service and staff and great location.Hotel is conveniently located on top of Namba Station, and it is surrounded by restaurants and shops.

The best thing about Swissotel Nankai Osaka would be its' location. Located on top of Namba Station, it is connected to almost 'everywhere'. A direct rapi:t train from Kansai Airport to Namba Station also very convenient. But of course, one could get lost inside the massive Namba Station, it like a city by itself, but fear not, there is an... More

Staffs are friendly and accommodating. The room is clean and neat. The fancy ambience of the hotel lobby. Shopping areas are just around the hotel. SHINSAIBASHI and DOTONBURI are just a stone throw away. Very good location and has easy access to the airport via train.

We chose this hotel for its location and the reasonable price. Because it is right at the Namba subway and train station, it is the most convenient place to be. Stepping outside is the main walking street of Osaka where you can find everything you need - restaurants and shopping. We wrote to ask if we could leave our luggage... More

Friendly and attentive staff, nice cosy room. Location just on top of express train station to airport. Lots of shopping around the area. Den den town is just a 8 min walk. Dotobori is about 15 walk. :)

Our holidays started with an overnight stop at Swissotel Nankai Osaka. The hotel came highly recommended by our travel agent as it is centrally located. We arrived close to midnight and were quickly checked-in by the front office. A polite bell hop brought us to our room on the 32nd floor, which is also a Club floor. First impression of... More

I heard about this hotel from friends who have stayed here before and all of them have good things to stay. Located on top of the Namba Train station, the hotel features an elevator that leads straight to the subway.
