Ended up booking rooms at the Hotel Il Monte for a short family vacation out of sheer desperation when I literally could not find anything else. My Japanese friends were a little shocked as they described it as being right in the Osaka red light district. I think their fears were unfounded (either that or Osaka has an incredibly tame...

From Umeda Station, take exit B2. It's about 100 meters away from the station. It's across the famous Hep Five and behind it are the bars and restaurants that are open until the wee hours. I would recommend this hotel for those who love to party at night since it's very close to the clubs. The room is a typical... More

Actually rather good, comfortable hotel. Right beside the start of one of Osaka's busy night life streets and a little prone to being "busy" with what another reviewer has called "watchers". It never troubled me but it did mean some street noise at night. Room was quite spacious really for japanese hotel and was well equiped. Although it was not... More

Location of this hotel is really great, located just 5 minutes walk from Osaka/Umeda station (heart of the city). Rooms are very small, even tiny. But very quiet and clean. Bathroom in my double room was quite large with very comfortable bath which was big enough for me to entirely fit into it (180). Breakfast wasn't very rich, but for... More

A bit old, had allergy to feather and found no replacement for cotton bedware. Overall quite old and badly maintained. However location is really good in Umeda, easy to find and to commute. Anoter drawback - especially if single woman travelling- would be the 'watchers' on ground floor. They seem to use the hotel entrance as their offices. Not that... More

Good location. Family mart was next door. Typical small room, like Japanese style. Friendly staff, were trying to help and support, even they can speak English. Walking distance to shopping and drinking area.

Hadn't very much choice as almost all hotels were booked because of the Osaka Marathon. But what a pleasant surprise! The hotel room was clean and the bathroom quite "large" for Japanese standard. The room itself is very small, but again you have to consider that it's in Japan! I booked a semi-double room but could change it to a... More

Very close to the Umeda & Osaka Station. Easy to go shopping and plenty of foods to choose from. Rooms a little bit small but cozy & just nice for us. The pillow is not so bad after all, a bit hard but then I can still sleep well on it. Rooms are clean and the people are very friendly... More

Chose this place as a last resort as most places were booked during the time we were in Osaka, and I wasn't disappointed. Conveniently located across the road from shops and a short 5-10 min walk to both Umeda / Osaka Station. Rooms are abit small but not uncomfortable. Sufficient amenities and we even had a street facing view of... More
