Positive: Location, Location & Location! Staff are helpful! Clean room! Rather spacious for Japan standard! Negative: Smoke smell at the lobby. The nearby pub should be the culprit. Conclusion: I will definitely prefer to stay in Namba Oriental Hotel for my next trip and next next trip.

A not bad hotel. Nothing to really commend it or the staff, but nothing to really put me off. I would not rush back, but if in Osaka again try another local option. Good location, bit run down/tired. Staff OK. Just a bit non really!

This Hotel is unexpectedly right in the heart of a main shopping center. Night life is on and shops like Big Camera are just next door. Lot of eateries around and you can enjoy various Japanese cuisines here. The restaurant has the authentic Japaneses seating arrangement though there are other seating areas for westerners.

Excellent spot in Namba - near the subway station, lots of restaurant around, lots of shopping area, near Dotumburi and good room price. Quite noisy outside due to the pachinko places, but it adds character to the place. The nearby McDonalds and Lawson were very useful to our stay. Highly recommended!

This hotel had the perfect set up for our stay in Osaka. We were near all sorts of amenities and a short walk to the train station. We had a very early flight out on Kansai and the 3 minute walk at 5am was very manageable. Rooms were nice and big and the bed was comfortable. The only issue we... More

Normally staying here would have been out of our college student price range but we got a good deal so we snagged it. We spent two days in Osaka on our way to Tokyo and Namba Oriental was great due to it's nice amenities and central location. You seriously just walk three blocks north and you're smack dab in the...

Stayed for 3 nights in May 2015. Wonderful hotel - right in the middle of Namba's vast shopping and food district and close to the train/subway station. We stayed in a twin room and its size was decent. The bathroom was big and clean. Staff are generous with complimentary toiletries and clean thoroughly each day. Sound insulation and the bed/sheets... More

The hotel is beautifully located at 3 minutes from Namba train and subway station and right next to Dotonbori which means countless choices for things to do and to eat in the evening. Rooms are huge for Japanese standards which is a plus. Staff was kind and knew good English, they helped us a lot in sending our luggage straight... More

Hotel is spacious, well maintained and clean. Best thing is the location - many eateries situated downstairs. The bic camera department store is also just around the corner. The Shinsaibashi shopping district is just a few streets of shopping down the road. Great place albeit a tad expensive. Had a restful comfortable stay.
