The management had really thought about travellers needs and provided so many things for free. Massage chairs, tea/coffee, free phone call, fantastic information book and craft work fun... More

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.
