The location of this hotel is excellent. It is just 5 mins walk from Namba station. Namba station is a centralized station with subway, Hanshin Railway, Kintetsu Railway, NanKai Railway. Starting from Kansai Airport, you can simply take NanKai Railway to Namba Station. A 40 mins journey, no need to change other line. Then you walk through the all connected... More

As noted by majority reviews, this hotel has lots of pluses. The email contacts at the start were professionally dealt with and responses were very helpful and prompt. The staff all spoke pretty good English and were most helpful. The location was perfect, near subway Namba and near some very reasonably priced and good restaurants. Little extras like free coffee...

This is my second time staying this hotel. I stayed in this hotel with my wife , our 23 months old son and our in-laws between 20-23 Mar 2015, I will recommend this place to my friend. No much change for this hotel and the free noodle was a GEM and it tasted better than the noodle shop near by... More

this hotel was fantastic!!! I would encourage anyone staying in Osaka to stay here. Firstly the location is great - in a awesome spot in Dotonbori - close to subway stops and Namba station (walking distance) and then so many restuarants on the dotonburi strip at the doorstep. Shinsaibashi shopping is a minute down the road. The hotel itself is... More

Staying here was a fantastic experience, and I have only good things to say! Staff were continuously helpful, and patiently tolerated my awkward attempts to speak Japanese to them! The room was small but well-appointed, handsome, and very clean. Good quality grooming products were available in the bathroom, which was also spotless. Good wifi signal. The hotel is in a... More

What more can you a so for? Free beer,free ramen, free overseas calls, free welcome shisheido kit for the ladies. This hotel is loaded with freebies! It's close to the Namba station and the Dotonbori area. The front desk staff were really friendly and helpful. I love this hotel! The only drawback is that the bathroom is really really small!...

Centrally located hotel in the city, with its unique recognisable frontage, just across the road from Dotonbori area and Namba subway station. Nice and friendly staff who attended to us warmly when we arrived before check-in time. Our request for a higher floor room was met without any problem. Plenty of eateries and restaurants nearby.
