I stayed here with my brother and sister-in-law for a few days at the end of my holiday in Japan and we could not have been happier. Osaka Castle is literally just around the castle and if you leave your window open at night you can hear the music from the nighttime show, Tannimachi-4-chome exit 1b brings you out just... More

We stayed here just before the New Year, made a last minute booking, so unfortunately, we were assigned a smoking room (and we're non-smokers). Aside from this, we enjoyed our stay. The room was very spacious based on Japanese standards. No complaints. The hotel is located in a business-type area, not much around it, but it's only a couple stops... More

This was probably the best value-for-money hotel that we stayed at during our trip to Japan. Steps from Osaka Castle and the Museum of History and conveniently located near the subway. The park nearby was the highlight. Bed was comfortable, thermostat worked well, and a larger than normal bathroom with water pressure was good and an electric toilet. Internet was... More

The breakfast is amazing for such a rather small hotel with very moderate prices. The rooms are japanese standard but very clean and cosy. You even get rooms with view of Osaka Castle. And the Hotel is very quiet, the walls seem to br insolated very well. The staff is very friendly and gave us an early check in for... More

Resonalble and fine hotel. It's very near Osaka castle and not difficult to get city center. Little narrow but good to stay for 2ppl. Just fit in. And staff is very friendly. That hotel would be recommended for sightseeing.

I have spent 2 nights in The Lutheran Hotel and my experience is very positive. Hotel is near the Osaka Castle and Osaka Museum of History. You can reach both in 5 to 10 minutes on foot. It is also very easy to reach the hotel by metro. It is located near Tanimachi Yonchome (4Chome) metro station. You can reach... More

This hotel was located very close to Osaka castle (5 min), was a block from the Tanimachi subway line and close (5 min) to the Chuo subway line. It was close enough to everything, but far enough away at the same time. The rooms were quite clean and spacious. The staff were fine - not super friendly or outgoing...I guess... More

Nice, new (at least to me) hotel with comfy beds in a clean room. Not near any entertainment areas but quite near to Osaka Castle. Hotel has an underground carpark which is convenient (and the reason why I chose it) but was disappointed when there were empty spaces but i was not allowed to park because they were reserved for...

Despite of its name this hotel doesn't seem to related to the church. However, I'm sure they are really into charity because they are offering large rooms in a busy Japanese city with very reasonable price. I'm really amazed! The hotel is located in Osaka's business district. It's quiet at night but doesn't feel deserted, for there are several convenience... More

We stayed here for two nights before we flew home from Kansai. The hotel was pretty good value for what you get. Nothing too spectacular, but everything is well appointed and clean. It is also right next to a metro station on two lines, however finding your way from the metro to the hotel can be a bit tricky as... More
