Great way to reach the Nakanoshima station which leads directly to the hotel. The hotel maybe slightly faded but clean. Checking in and checking out was a breeze. The free hotel shuttle bus to Osaka station was excellent, every six minutes! Also, provides one-way free shuttle bus to Universal studio if you register at the reception one day before. The... More

This is a Western style hotel, with a vast lobby and two accommodation wings, each serviced by its own check in counter (and elevator). There are a number of bars, and more than eight restaurants, all rather pricey (some very pricey), but there's a regular shuttle bus to JR Osaka, which is surrounded by many restaurant and entertainment options (including...

We only had a 2 night short stay here but the great service began before we even arrived. I had a parcel due to be delivered here as it was my first night in Japan, and the front desk staff were very helpful through email assuring me they would keep it secure for my arrival. My arrival was fairly late... More

First time i've ever stayed in a hotel room with 2 bathrooms. It was great since we didn't have to wait for each other's turn to use the bathroom.
