We stayed one night for a family of five with teenage / adult children. The room was a traditional Japanese room with tatami mats and good value. Kimonos were provided and so it added to the traditional atmosphere of the room. Location was great, close to eating places and shops. Our adult children enjoyed the night life and night shopping....

We stayed here for 4 nights to experience Osaka. We were given a Ryokan style room with beds on the floors. It was great for all. The kids loved the bedding and the way the room was set up. My youngest moved her bed into the cupboard and turned it into a private 'cubby' house. It was fantastic. Great location... More

The location was fantastic - right on the doorstep of Dotonbori and only a few minutes walk to the subway. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The shower/bath was fantastic. The staff were extra friendly and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. Great to have a fridge in the room, and a beer vending machine downstairs too. We had... More

Triple room was big for a Japanese hotel Separate Toilet, bath and sink provisions are good for 3 people since we were able to use these simultaneously. What I did not like 1. Directions to hotel are not clear 2. Staff should know at least some basic English 3. smoking area is right in front of the elevator

Stayed 2 nights here with family. First off, location wise, it's pretty good. It's very near Dotounbori street which has all the shops and restaurants. I was very excited to see the Glico man (cliche I know) and was glad to know it was just a couple of mins walk away. The hotel is closer to the Nanba area so... More

Im now staying at Naniwa hotel for my 5 days trip in Osaka. Rooms are comfortable and clean. If you wish to experience the Japanesse style room, do try their quad sharing room with futon bed. Location wise is strategic to Dotounbori street n Nipombashi. Definitely satisfied with this hotel.

Stayed there from 26 - 28/1. It's just a 10 - 12 min walk from Nipponbashi, which is the closest station to the hotel. On the way to the hotel, across the road on your left, just before the canal, you'll pass an entrance to Dotonbouri street where you can feast on just about everything Osaka has to offer, including...

The whole impression of the hotel is that it is dirty. The location was ok though - on walking distance from the station and from shoping area. The staff was ok, speaks good English. We stayed only one night

Service is just for an average room. with a toilet and a bathroom. Less than 5 minutes walking distance to hotspot and subway. But if getting back to Kansai airport by Nankai airport train, take a cab costs less than 800 yen rather going through the busy hotspots with baggage. WiFi connection is bad.
