Visited Osaka in May 2012, stayed at Metro 21 Osaka for 2-3 nights. Central location, reasonable price for solo traveler. Situated at the center of the bustling Minami area of Osaka. The breakfast buffet is worth the price, Good selection of western and Japanese food,

Good price, very well located, room was clean and comfortable (except for the smell of the carpet, they need to do something about the smell, which means clean it, room and hallways) staff is nice and they offer breakfast (1000 yen per person), if you want to party this is the option, also it is 10 min walk from Namba...

I had been to Japan many times and stayed in many hotels around Japan, this time was the worst. Not because the hotel itself but the staff and the service. The hotel is well located in the nightlife area, the rooms are pretty small but not a big deal. we booked three rooms, my mom and brother arrived one day... More

Honestly, we choosed this place only because the others were too expensive. It is very well located, in the middle of osaka nightlife: the area is not suitable for puritans and people who cannot sleep with noise around. Double rooms are actually single european rooms (bed are one and an half), but it is clearly descripted before booking. No issues... More

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
