We stayed here 2 nights and this was one of the worse hotel I've ever been: room very small, overpriced, stinky, humid, super small tatami and in general everything looks old and badly maintained. We stayed in Kyoto in a fabulous hotel with a room double the size and superclean for the same money. To avoid

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Kuramoto for 2 nights in March 2013. The staff were very friendly and eager to help. They have limited English, but a little Japanese from our side and we were all able to understand each other enough. The room was traditional tatami matting and futons, and was very large by the standards we... More

Difficult to rate a place not knowing the market in same city. I believe 120$ per night in Osaka in good, especially if the location is excellent, the staff really nice and willing to help, the equipment working very well in the room. This is on the simple side. I was in room 605, supposedly a double room for single... More

Three nights with my wife, 2 y/o baby girl and her 7 y/o brother ... December 2012, three beds rooms at 5th floor ... It is very convenient; Appropriate price, can even say it's quite cheap in Japan. The people were very nice and polite, sometimes it feel awkward because they are much more senior than us.. Very clean room,... More

I spent 1 night with my partner at Kuramoto in late February. The place was very clean and felt very authentically Japanese style-ed. Yukata was provided for those who wish to experience traditional Japanese clothing. Although the clothing was not brand-new, it smelled very fresh and felt very comfortable. Our room was equipped with a private bathroom, but the hotel... More

I really like this hotel!!!good location to the shopping area and the hotel is quite clean. Kuramoto is the full range of facilities in all the hotels we stayed during the japan trip! Most of all, the receptionist is a very kind person who provided our lots of helps! Next time, we will chose the hotel again~~~~

This hotel is very close to Dotombori, so it fitted us perfectly since we were in Osaka just one night. It is not the most modern place on earth, not luxury but the owners are nice people and willing to help. If you are staying just one night in Osaka and not planning to stay in your room, it's not...

Our first night in Japan was spent here. Flight was delayed for 5hours so we only had 1 night in Osaka before heading off to Kyoto the following morning. Location is near to almost anything since we are walkers. Overall, it was ok. Owner was very friendly and would try his best to give us directions when we asked for... More

I stayed here quite a few years ago (futher back than the "date of stay" above would allow. I think it was in 2002. The staff and ryokan itself left a great impression on me, even to this day. The staff really have limited english, but I enjoy trying to interact with them a great deal. The hotel itself was... More

Nice staff. Great service. Close to Namba about 10-15 min walk but very far from station. We had to take taxi from/to and that costs us heaps. Besides, the hotel is quite old. There is hot public bath and hot water bathtub but quite dirty and bad smell. We would prefer cleaner and newer hotel.
