I booked a room for two people for five nights but my friend could not come last minute, so I requested to change to a single room. Despite the staff had limited English, I got my request and the room is more spacious than I expected as a solo room. The room is very clean as well but you can... More

This hotel is a bit dated but very conveniently located in the heart of Osaka CBD. The hotel is located next to Exit 4 of Nagahoribashi subway station and is one stop to Shinsaibashi and Nipponbashi stations, two stops to Namba station. The Crystal underground shopping mall links the hotel to the famous Shinsaibashi shopping streets. The popular Kuromon Market... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, the hotel was a little out of date but it was clean and comfortable. Great location to all transport, heaps and heaps of restaurants and shops. Walking distance to neon district and the best shopping strips. Staff were great.

The location is simply superb! Directly next to the Nagahoribashi Underground. There's also 2 Japanese restaurants right opposite which serve from breakfast to dinner with yummy hot food and good pricing. The front desk staff is always smiling and attentive. One of the girls even went out in the cold winter under drizzling rain to help us get two taxis... More

Stayed 3 nights here last year in March with a friend. Was given a big room (usually very small in Japan) with twin beds. The hotel is right next to a tube station and within easy walking distance to shops and eateries in Shinsaibashi. It was really convenient to get to different places in Osaka from the Ark. The only... More

One of the cheaper hotels I booked in Japan. Location is superb, close to everything: shops, restaurants, stations, etc. If location and price are your top priorities, this won’t disappoint. Not a very fussy guest here, but there are a few things I didn’t love about the place: First of all you have to leave the key, an actual key,... More

I spent 6 nights at this hotel, and I loved the location. There was a mini mart across the street, and I was able to get great food there to eat in my room for breakfast and dinner most nights. Tea was provided, but not coffee so I had to buy a small bottle at the mini mart. The room... More

My partner and I stayed at this hotel for a 4 day break in Osaka from 8th-12th February. We stayed on the 8th floor. We made the booking through booking.com so we could pay on arrival which worked out perfectly and it was easy to reserve. Staff at the hotel reception are very nice (as is everyone in Osaka!) and...
