We booked a non-smoking room. At arrival we received the key of a smoking room, it smelled terrible in there! After insisting for at least 20 minutes, it was okay to transfer to a non-smoking room. The staff were willing to help, but the poor English didn't make it any easier. The hotel is very old-fashioned and could have been... More

The staff are very helpful and the hotel is well positioned. We had some issues with the Internet and after trying to fix it and not succeeding, they upgraded us to a better room, on a different floor, where the Internet was indeed working. Would highly recommend.

If you're looking to tour Osaka Castle in the early morning before the summer sun burns up, this is probably the nearest accommodation on the map. We stayed 2 nights and found this hotel very clean, a bit roomier than the average size of other hotels. But notice that there are not many ideal restaurant choices. You might need to... More

Hotel room was good size for Japan for a double room. Bathroom bigger compared to some we stayed in. Value for money with breakfast included which was both western and Japanese style. Hotel is close to 711 and subway station only about 3 mins away but it is a little out of the way from Osaka station and will take... More

Great Hotel! I decided to stay here one night after arriving at KIX airport and before going to Kyoto. Great location - 2 min walk from Osaka Castle Park (which has a running path that was awesome to jog around). A little hard to reach from the KIX airport - You have to transfer once or twice, which involves lots... More

A bit dated of a hotel but comfortable and fully functional for everything you need. Located in a key spot, 3min walk from Osaka castle park and right off a metro stop on the pink line. Being japan, of course you have plenty of 7-11 and family marts nearby to grab breakfast. The room was large enough for us to... More

The hotel is 5min close to a well connected subway station (Tanimachi 4-chome Station) and 10min from the Osaka Castle. It does not have a lot of places to shop/dinner around (only minimarkets for snacks) and is 20-30min from most shopping and dinner areas. For tourism, you may get better locations in Namba and Umeda, but likely at higher prices.... More

Really small room but equipped with everything you need. As in any Japanese hotel, bath tub is available. Location is good. less than 5min walk from Tanimachi 4-chome Station. There is a 7-11 just outside the station exit 1B. If you are travelling with kids/old folks/heavy luggages, please use exit 1A which is just an additional 2min walk. It is... More

I chose to stay at Hotel the Lutheran mainly due to the availability at reasonable price when I plan the trip. The hotel location is closed to the tourist spots of Osaka History Museum and Osaka Castle. It is also closed to the headquarters of Osaka police and Osaka government. Though it is just 3 minutes walk from entrance of... More
