Our family has stayed here in one of the Japanese/Western (washitsu/youshitsu) room suites three times now, generally when coming in from or flying out of KIX. (The limousine bus between KIX and Sannomiya leaves you just a few minutes walk from the hotel.) The suite is very roomy for a Japanese business hotel room, though space is a bit tight for 5. The tatami room just fits 3 futons side by side, so the table has to be moved into the futon storage area if 3 are sleeping there. The other room has a built-in desk and a double bed that's adequate for 2 people. It's enough space for us, and it's quite comfortable. There's an air conditioning unit in each room. The bathroom is a typical small "unit bath" with toilet, sink, and tub/shower. Breakfast is a bit minimalist compared to fancier Japanese hotel breakfast buffets, but it's good and there are both Japanese and Western options. The standard menu seems to be Japanese-style (wet) scrambled eggs, a meat such as sausage, a veggie such as steamed broccoli, a salad (kabocha salad, potato salad, etc.), okayu (rice porridge), instant miso soup, yogurt with fruit sauce, and various breads. There's also coffee, orange juice, and milk. Service has been prompt and pleasant. A couple of times we had minor issues that were attended to promptly. All in all, this is a great value and I highly recommend it! If you're on a budget, head about one block down the street (away from Sannomiya) to a take-out bento place for lunch or dinner. We got dinners for the 5 of us for 2000 yen.
