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...

I loved how strategic this hotel is and it is especially great if it is your first time in Osaka! One of the subway exit/entrance is literally next to your hotel so you don't have to worry about getting lost upon arrival. There is Yoshinoya and another fast food chain just outside the hotel along with Family Mart and 7-11... More

Ark Hotel is right next to a metro station and walking distance to Dotonbori. The room and the bathroom are really small by European or Westerner standards, but a standard size in Japan. I had a single room at the end of corridor, it supposed to be quite, but the room door was rally thin and i could overhear my... More

Stayed there for one night. No early check in as front desk insisted on checking everyone from 3pm onward. Not even pre-register passport info etc... The hotel is little bit dated but at least you get a decent size room. I paid about USD 100 for the night so can't complain too much. Walking time to Shinsaibashi shopping area is... More

Great location, just besides Nagahoribashi station. I can't remember which exit is the nearest but Station Master is always available to assist. Walking distance to Dotonburi and Shinsaibashi shopping street. The room is decent sized, and clean. Helpful staff, even have their own copies of map to assist tourist on attraction places.

I made my first trip to Osaka and all I wanted was an affordable, conveniently located hotel so that I could easily and quickly get to the attractions. I got more than I had imagined when I stayed here. The hotel is easily within walking distance to Shinsaibashi and Dotonbori and is only a couple blocks from the nearest subway... More

We stayed at the Ark for one night as a last minute choice after other accommodation fell through. We found the staff strangely stand-offish which was odd. But for a last minute booking the price was very reasonable. We got a room with three big single beds in it and as others have observed, the rooms here are quite big... More

Yet very dated and the walls were covered in marks. Also the walls and doors were paper thin, so if you are a light sleeper this will be a problem. Nice staff, helpful. 10 min walk from great shopping A walk away from streets lined with cute, yum eateries.

This hotel from the outside seems small and not too pleasant but it actually is really good. The room itself is huge. It is easily the biggest room I have ever stayed in, in a hotel in Asia. In consideration, this hotel is great! The Location is pretty good too. It is directly across the rode from some of the... More
