Terrible experience....Please do not stay here! They double charged my master card and are refusing to refund the money. So make sure you check your bank account. The location is great but there are a lot better hotel in the area!

This hotel is located within a 3 minute walk of the main JR train station. The room size is not too bad when compared to many Japanese hotels. There was even room for both our suitcases to be left flat - one on the luggage rack and the other on the coffee table. Plus we had two chairs and we... More

We spent 2 nights in April 2014 at Il Cuore Namba hotel in Osaka. Well located, very close to Namba Station. Staff willing to help. Room relatively large for Japan, with enough room for a small table and an armchair. Unfortunately the double bed is against the wall. Mattress good too train for Ryocan (as hard as futons). Very clean.... More

I have actually lowered my expectations after getting tips from friends and internet reviews about the hotel's room size. My daughter actually commented that the bathroom was as big as an AIRLINE TOILET. But am happy to share that all these space limitations/complaints were forgotten after we started moving around the area. LOCAL TRANSPORT - The hotel is a stone... More

This hotel has a very good location - near the subway stations, low to high-end shopping districts, food outlets and Namba Park. Our twin-bed room is rather small but serves our purpose. One comment I have though there is only one English channel - BBC news.

Location We took the JR Train from Kyoto and transfered at Osaka Umeda Station to Nanba Station (take the Metro Midosuij line to Nakamozu, ¥ 230 - 4 stops) At Nanba station find exit 5 and look up and you will see Il Cuore. (3 min walk to Il Cuore) You'll also see a local drugstore at a corner, cross... More

We stayed at Il Cuore Namba after I saw its location in the Osaka Map. It was right smack in the midst of the shopping and eating district of Osaka. It was a three minute walk to the subway. Very convenient since it’s connected to the airport line and the line from Kyoto. The hotel also granted our request to... More

We went there April 18th, 2014 after carefully learned all comments made in trip advisor. All of the positive comments are proven to be true. It was our visit to Japan and thanks to Google Earth with its street view features, we were able to recognise the neighbourhood of the hotel. It took only approximately 5 minutes from Nankai Namba...

Take exit 5 out of subway and walk across street towards corner news stand/pharmacy, walk past Family Mart and its right there. People in Japan are very helpful... More

If travelling by train (as most do) can highly recommend this hotel as close proximity to the train (walking distance, no cab needed). Location for this and shops and good restaurants was fantastic (awesome little place with lanterns just around the corner was one of the best we ate at on our trip). The hotel cost was a bit higher... More
