Hotel Claiton is an excellent hotel in the Shin Osaka Area. To clear the obvious out of the way; no, it's not in a touristy area. With that being said, you will not pay the touristy price and you will get a boat load of extras for what you're paying for.
- Helpful staff [english is limited, but they do help the best they can]
- Extremely efficient room service
- Expansive Western/Japanese breakfast buffet
- Onsen area [showers, indoor/outdoor jacuzzi mineral tub and sauna]
- A few blocks away from Nishinakajima Train Station [easy access using the Midosuji or Hankyu Lines]
- Extremely quiet
- Inexpensive [Even with the American dollar, our 2 1/2 week stay was under 1200; breakfast was free].
- If your are adventurous and hate tourist traps, the Nishinakajima area is pulsing with life, mini cafes, arcades and jazz bars.
- Hard to find if you do not know the language [Easier instructions; Walk west from the train station [if you see a Lawson''s Market, you're in track] and make a right at the Family Mart convenience store. Can't miss it.]
- Room is small. My partner is 6'3 and I am 5'8. We are not over weight and a Semi double was doable but small. If you are on the larger side or have more than two people, you might want to get a double or their deluxe rooms.
- Pillows...strange I know, but the pillows have beans in them for head support. If you are a pillow junky like my, you may want to ask for a second set or bring you're own. The are not the most comfortable thing in the world, but two of them makes sleeping bearable.
All in all, the good outweighs the bad and you're not getting priced gouged for being in Umeda, Namba, or Shinsaibashi. It's a clean, quiet business hotel and it's spot on for the frugal traveler.
