I booked a twin room 3 weeks in advance on booking.com after my three usual favourite Namba hotels were booked out at such short notice. I really didn't have high expectations after reading the other reviews and the fact it only cost me ¥47000 for a twin room for 4 nights (comparable to what I usually pay in my favourites... More

I stayed here a few weekends ago. The location of this hotel is great, the lobby was nice and clean but the rooms were not good. All they had were smoking rooms, the comforter on my bed had a cigarette burn in it, one of the pillows had 2 red stains on it visible through the cover that appeared to... More

The location is very good...just about 2-3 blocks from all the nightlife/shopping in the Namba/Nipponbashi area. We decided to take a cab from the JR Shin-Osaka station because of our luggage, 2 kids and a large double-stroller. Thankfully, we had the name of the hotel printed in Japanese and a map with street names in Japanese, otherwise the cab driver... More

The location is just perfect - right in the action of everything. It's 2 mins walk to Dontobori, and 10- 15 mins walk to Namba station. I made Namba station as my hub because I can travel to Kobe, Minoh Park and everywhere around Osaka. No complain on the hotel. Just nice.

This hotel is in the best location one street behind the Dotonbori strip. Rooms are clean with free wifi but are a bit small. Breakfast was good with a view over the strip. There is the convenience of a 7/11 attached to the lobby. Staff are friendly . Recommended for location and value for money.

A modern hotel located a 5 to 10 minute walk north of the Nipponbashi train station, or south of Nagahoribashi station. Very convenient to maze of streets crowded with pedestrians, closed to cars. Lots to see and sample. We stayed there after a half day at Spa World, which is worth a visit too. Just a few stops by train... More

I was here on recommendation from a tour agency and regretted it. There are a lot of superior hotels in the downtown area. This one should be avoided if possible. The room is old and smells some. The bed covers are old and the interior is tiny. The bathroom is especially cramped. The room is rather dark with an old... More

I stayed in Metro The 21 for 2 nights with a friend. We had a double room. The location is amazing for Osaka. Namba is the liveliest place in Osaka with lots of shops, restaurants, bars on so on. Metro The 21 is by the Dotombori river. The hotel and the room was pretty basic budget-hotel type, but if that... More
