It was a great stay at Hotel Chuo Selene. We stayed for 5 nights and were very impressed with the service and quality. The location is close to 3 different train stations and very close to a legendary ramen Muteppo. Shinseikai and the zoo is both near there which provides people both good food selection and entertainment. All in all,... More

We stay here for 11 nights in triple room on the 6th Floor. The hotel location is the best thing for this hotel, it close to JR Shin-Imamiya, Subway Dobutsuenmae, and Nankai Shinimamiya. Also, you can walk within 5 minutes to Tsutenkaku tower which is one of the sightseeing place in osaka. Lawson and Familymart are located on the corner... More

Close to Shin-Imamiya train station if you travel by train or just 1 minute walk from Dobutsuen-mae subway station exit 3 ( Midosuji Line or Sakaisuji Line) but if you catch Nanki train from Kansai airport , it takes about 8 minute walk. The hotel is very clean, room is neat and comfortable with full equipments. There are small kitchen... More

Generally, the hotel is good and fair considering its cheap price level. We got the 6-bedroom dormitory all for ourselves even if we are only four in the group. We wanted a bigger space that's why. I would throw 5/5 in cleanliness and its security aspect. 3 train stations are just few stones away from the hotel. However, if you're... More

An affordable, clean and warm hotel with basic need. The owner is a friendly guy who is willing to answer your question and even watched us leaving the hotel with a goodbye. The best thing is, you could store your huge luggage with the hotel while travelling to another part of Kansai. 5 minutes walk away from subway and JR... More

The friendly staff was very helpful in pointing me in the right direction of where the good food are. Despite it not being in a central location, it is still very close to everything else, within 5min walking distance to the subway and JR train stations and about 30mins walk to Dotonbori which if you're into the Osaka night life...

it's not located in the prime tourist area but very close to the train (right in front) it's a budget hotel, so no free breakfast (only tea and coffee at the lobby) and they offers cleaning service once per week, just let the reception know you need your room clean before 10am. the lobby is quite spacious, with sofas, TV....
