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. Opted for the no breakfast included since it was part of our itinerary to try out different places to eat and the entire stretch of Dotombori is just perfect for that. Since... More

The hotel is clean and by far the most spacious hotel we've stay. The staff are very friendly and happen to bump in to an activity, a Osaka hamburger party hosted by the hotel, for FREE.

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.
