This hotel is located in the heart of all the action. With countless bars in the local area as well direct access to a seven eleven from the lobby, its a great hotel to stay at. The staff was great, but the bathroom was pretty small. Its a pretty easy walk from the subway station with plenty of restaurants on... More

My family stayed here during the last week of April 2015 and I must say, it was truly worth it. Yes the rooms were not big but good enough for the price we paid, the air conditioning was just right even on a warm day, the free wi-fi in the room was a plus! No wonder this hotel is always... More

This hotel locates near Namba station, Shinsaibashi, Dontobori, and walking distance to Kuromon market. Hotel staffs are friendly and willing to help! Room is new and clean. It has free wifi. Nice location if you want to visit Kyoto as well. Overall, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED :D

Located about an 8 minutes walk away from the main heart of Dotonburi. Convenience stores litter the outside of the hotel, making it easy to get a quick snack. Spaces are small but simple and comfortable. Air-conditioning was pretty bad, later explained to us that central air-conditioning could not keep the rooms as cold. The front desk prepared a whole...

It is about 5 mins from Dotonbori and 10 mins from Namba station. We complained of the hot room and were told that it is central aircon and weather dependent. What lousy excuse is that! The rooms were very tiny, like the ones you see in the photos. All basic necessities were available like toothbrush and paste, razor, comb, shampoo,... More

Quite a walk from JR Namba but great location near all restaurants and shopping! Room is spacious and clean. Theres also robe provided for guests. Polite front counter, vending machines outside the hotel. Will stay there again if visiting Osaka.

Business class hotel situated at Shinsaibashi side of the river. Across river is Dotombori. Hence have best of both side just next to each other in terms of shopping and food. Had some difficulty finding the hotel initially. There are 2 ways of approaching the hotel. If arriving at Shinsaibashi Station, find the exit via Diamaru Departmental Shopping Centre. Look... More

Great value for your yen! The hotel has a fantastic location, although located in a red-light district. 5 minutes from Nippombashi station and 5 minutes away from Dotomburi and Shinsaibashi shopping street. Also a 10 minute walk to Namba station. There's a 7-11 just downstairs, which is very useful. No wifi in rooms, only in lobbies. You can rent a... More
