I stayed in a single person room - it was clean, comfortable and fairly spacious (for a Japanese room). What I really liked about this hotel was the extra services (most free of charge) like renting a laptop and lots of others. Staff were helpful and could speak English well. Location is also very handy; within 2 minutes walking from... More

The Dotonbori hotel is about a 10-15 min walk from the station and although the statues outside look kind of weird, they are an excellent way of knowing you have reached your destination! The free phone call home was an excellent benefit, it was so nice to have 5 minutes to call my family without knowing I was being charged... More

This is our Japanese foodie dream location! It is a fantastic, friendly hotel just off the main road and next too many restaurants and a convenience store. The rooms are a nice size for Japanese rooms and they offer many services, such as tour help, visitor train tickets, money exchange and complimentary candies and toiletries. The main shopping strips are... More

We have stayed several times at Dotonbori Hotel, most recently in April 2012. The hotel has an excellent location only minutes away from the famous neon lights around Dotonbori.

I recently had a 2 night stay at the Dotonbori hotel. The location was great, with very clear instructions provided on their website. Located very near Namba station in osaka, with the aid of the station maps it only took me a short while to make my way from the Nankai station to exit 25, then another 3 minutes walk... More

Perfect location - right near Dotonbori Street where you can eat, eat, eat! Easy walk from the station. Very clean rooms, but as always in Japan, the rooms are small. The bathroom was tiny, and there was no window, but was very clean. Lots of extras and great value for money.

I made reservations online for a triple-sharing room via their website and no down payment was needed. I booked months in advance and got a special discounted rate.

Tripadvisor reviews were spot on for this hotel. For the price paid, you are just steps away from where all the action in Osaka is! Very convenient location to Namba subway station and abt 10-15 mins walk from Namba Nankai Railway. They are both very easy to find. There are MANY restaurants in the area and shops aplenty.
