This hotel is right next to the Nankai Namba station, a short walk to Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi, where shopping and dining options abound. Access to the hotel was very easy by train, having come to Osaka via Shinkansen from Kyoto; the hotel gives very good directions on its website. Attractions like Osaka Castle are short train rides away, and the... More

My husband and 5 month old daughter stayed in this hotel for one night. We only planned to stay in Osaka for one night but if we didn't have to be back, I would have extended my stay just so I could stay in this hotel. Rooms are modern and updated. Bathroom is beautiful. Beds are amazingly comfortable. Super close... More

We stayed on a Club floor and the lounge provided a good quality breakfast and evening canapés/drinks. The concierge service is second to none- extremely helpful for first-time visitors to Osaka. Central location and easy access to transport. My only disappointment was the small bathroom- would have expected better from a Club room. Would definitely stay here again.

We've stayed there during our trip in February. The staffs were very professional since most of them can speak English fluently. The location of the hotel itself is unbeatable since it was literally on top of the Nankai Namba train station. This station is where you board the direct airport express train to Kansai airport. Moreover, the Namba area is... More

For a first timer visiting Osaka, the Swissotel Nankai is a great place to stay. The location is perfect, and accessibility to the trains makes going around the city very easy. The hotel staff also assist you with directions to make it easy to visit popular spots around the city.
