The rooms were small, but nothing to small, and the hotel is in good shape. There is, however, a pervasive smell of cigarette smoke. I was on a non-smoking floor, but the smell was still overwhelming. The other problem with the hotel is that it is really quite out of the way. The area it is in is not bad,... More

We stayed in this hotel for a night, only because our shortlist of ryokans and hotels in Osaka were unavailable, and also to earn membership points. The reviews said it was near the subway station but even the ticket guy at the station wasn’t familiar with the address. He even said it will take us 30mins by foot so we... More

The hotel somehow far from busy city center is close to many restaurants as well, 24H McDonald. Do not miss the Rikuro confectionery with its most delicious cakes and sweets, and free coffee at a very calm atmosphere with a few tables outside and some inside. Good place for kids to see how the cakes are made. The staff are... More

No value for money at all. The location is terrible--its in a run down mall on the last stop on the Yamamoto line (blue anyway). The first room we were given was "non-smoking" but smelled horrendous. The second room we were given was actually "non-smoking", but that was the end of the positives. It was incredibly hot, even with the... More

This hotel is inside a shopping mall called Osker Dream, at the 9th floor. It is NOT in the city center but I should say that didn't bother me. There is Suminokoen Metro Station just outside the mall. It's a very quite area and only a few stops away (about 15-20 minutes) from Namba station. From there you can take... More

The hotel was very comfortable and the staff were friendly. Reasonably priced. Although its not in the center of Osaka the Subway and Tram are very accessible. The hotel sells USJ 1 day pass for 5,800 yen ( normally 6,400) which is quite a good deal.

The hotel is far from the main shopping district of Namba but there is a subway stop just around the corner so it was no problem getting around. The tram stop is connected to the mall where the hotel is located and will take you to the Aquarium area, Harbor Town. The free breakfast daily is the same everyday but... More

This hotel is out in the sticks a bit, but we didn’t mind that as we had the subway and the new tram line right at the front door. So you need to travel quite a few stops to get into Osaka city. It’s a bit of a weird set up. A small shopping mall – called “Osker Dream” –... More
