Close to the main subways and very reasonably priced. We stayed six nights and traveled out to Nara and Himeji thus saving the effort of moving on. This hotel is perfect for being able to access the heart of the Namba district with old style arcades and markets. Plenty of variety in the near by streets and little alleyways. One... More

Let's be positive, the location is excellent and the staff were good. The room was clean and a reasonable size although the smoking area was right in front of the lift so getting to the room may be an issue for some. My issue was the rock hard mattress and single incredibly thin pillow that meant 2 very poor nights... More

The location is ideal but the furnishings, the lobby and the room are a little depressing. A least a fresh paint and new interior design should bring sunshine to this hotel It is not inexpensive either. The Provence/Florence artwork in the room and the Japanese innovation (is it, or it is just Naniwa?) on duvet cover with a cutout in... More

We stayed in the Hotel Naniwa for two nights. The location of the hotel is pretty good. It is very close to Dotonbori Street, but in a smaller street and hence quiet. It is also not too far from the railway station Namba and subway stations. The room is quite big for a Japanese hotel. Also the bathroom is big.... More

Let's start with the pros: a very good position and a good price. But the hotel really needs improvements. The hall is smelly, the rooms are old and dusty, not clean under the bed and dust is also on the walls and vents. The shower curtain is stained. We stayed here 3 days and it could have been worse but... More

This hotel was listed as a three star hotel. We stayed at this hotel two weeks ago for four nights and I do not recommend this hotel. It is NOT a three star property; in fact, it is barely a two star property. Our first room had beds which were like sleeping on beds of nails, with a Japanese bathroom.... More

I stayed here for two nights in triple room. I was very surprised to see very spacious room in Japan for the price I payed for. The building is little old but the room, lobby and the hallway is very clean. Toilet and the Bath & Shower room (Traditional Japanese Style) is separated. One of the other thing I was... More

I spent my last day in Japan here. Very close to dotonburi, just walk about 3 minutes. It also close to subway station, and shinsaibashi. Dotonburi and shinsaibashi are famous shopping area in osaka. If you are a shoppingholic this is the best place for you. First time we found water stain in front of sink and we tell receptionist... More

Hotel location is good as it is close to Dotonbori. The hotel is quite old and has cigarette smell in hallway. Staff is helping - but only one girl at a night shift can speak English. Room is spacious but very old. I stay here for 3 nights with my friends. The hotel price is OK, but I think I... More

Liked: location to Dotonbori shopping, Nipponbashi station, large bedroom, separate toilet, reliable wifi & air conditioning, free breakfast, windows had a Japanese style. Room for improvement: use hot tap only to get warm water, shower hose arrangement not practical, limited breakfast range, dated look.
