The hotel puts a lot of thought into pleasing the customers, starting with the wonderful lounge - free drinks, massage chairs, internet access and relevant and helpful brochures.

The hotel is very old with noisy air con and very small bathroom. Although the service and location are good, I am still quite disappointed at the condition of the hotel. I stayed one night at the other hotel: daiwa roynet osaka, and frankly I was much more satisfied than Daiwan than Dontonburi.

We stayed 6 nights at the hotel. We enjoyed the hotel quite much mainly because the location is great as the hotel is very close to Namba station, Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi. However, the toilet is quite small.
