We took this hotel as it was the cheapest, but am very pleased by the staff and service. Everything is VERY clean. The only downside would be Wifi is only at lobby, though there is wired internet in the room.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Non-smooking rooms are a lot cleaner.

I booked a non smoking room, when I arrived I was told there are no available rooms and I got a smoking room, very dusty. It was very hard to sleep like that.
Also, in order to get to the center of Osaka you need to go by train for 30 minutes and change trains.
Only benefit is the bus to the airport

The best part about this hotel is its location and accessibility to public transportation. The train station is literally right accross the street. There are a number of small restuarants and cafes within walking distance. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Wifi is available downstairs in the lobby. And they have awesome shishedo toiletries.

To me the important points about this hotel is its location.It is easy to get too and from the airports,either Kansai or Itami.Also the train station near the hotel takes you straight to Kyoto and Osaka castle.There is a subway station nearbye which will take you any where else.I was there as a tourist and found it a good base, also staff spoke good english.I would use again.

This is a good business hotel if you are on a trip in the area. There is an elevated walkway to the train station accessed from the second floor. The train station is the Keihan Moriguchishi which gives good access to Osaka. The Moriguchi subway station is several blocks away. I stayed in a superior room for the first part of my stay. It was comfortable with a good bed. I had to extend my trip and I moved to a standard room. The beds in the standard room are rather hard and so are the pillows. The desk in the standard room only has one outlet which is inconvenient, but a trip to the nearby 100 yen store took care of that.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This was the former Royal Pines Moriguchi Japanese style business hotel for the past many years before it recently became the Agora. They were working on it when I was here in May 2012.

As I approached the hotel from the Keihan Moriguchi train station I can see the new signage on top of the hotel. The main front doors of the hotel were partially updated. The reception desk was moved from the right hand side to the center of the lobby. The restaurant behind the desk was completely redone. The marble floor tiles are still the original tiles. The lobby walls were mostly updated with new black fabrics. Check-in went smooth. The room keys were the same except a black leather band was attached. The lobby was the most impressive update.

The elevators, hallways, and rooms were partially updated, but, for the most part the original Royal Pines décor over powered the updates except for the lobby area where the redo was more prominent. The room furniture is mostly unchanged, including the small refrigerator, 26-inch LCD flat screen TV, and pants presser. The mirror in my room was the orginal and was a bit worn in some parts. New tempurpedic pillows were on the beds.

Panasonic is the major employer here in Moriguchi so expect to see many Panasonic employees staying here. It has now been newly updated so it is very clean. This is a small local hotel, but, is quite nice and very reasonably priced at around 8,000 yen or about $100 per night. I like this hotel because it is conveniently located across the street from the Keihan Railway’s Moriguchi express station. From there I can easily go to downtown Osaka for shopping or eating, Osaka castle or even Kyoto. Of course the Keihan department store is also located across the street. The Kansai airport bus is also across the
street. It seems almost everything is across the street.

This is more of a business hotel and less suited for tourists, since there are no tourist sites in the immediate area of the hotel.

The lobby restaurant offers a choice of either the Japanese or American breakfast buffets for 1450 yen or about $20.
