“Worth the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

It's only a short walk from the JR station and it's easy to find. All staff are helpful and maps are placed on the desk to show you restaurants in the surronding area. I booked the ladies' room and was given extra cosmetic ammenities. A humidifier and hair curler/straightener are also provided. The breakfast are divided into Jap and Western type and you have to tell them your choice one day before. I tried the Western one and it's quite nice although there're not many varieties.

We stayed two night during summer 2012. Five minutes walk from the Shin-Osaka Station, just need to find the right exit. The hotel had two building and I can say although it is near the station, the noises are something we do not worried about.
The room as almost any Japanese hotel, are clean. But in size is very small. If the Hotel's interior designer are agree with most people in the world by putting the TV set 90 degree with the bed's head is, than I would have to also. It feels awkward to watch TV from your side.
The breakfast was adequate for us, although having one extra menu should be better.

Value for money. Very good location 5-10min walk from Shin-Osaka Station (using the East exit) - a major stop for JR line, subway, airport Haruka express & Shinkansen. Station is approx 30min ride via JR line to Kyoto, 50min ride to airport via Haruka, 5-10 min away from hub of shopping street of Shinsaibashi via JR or subway. Simple breakfast of either Japanese or Western set. Room was surprising spacious - had a twin room for a family of four (2 sons below 10yrs old). Receptionists do not speak much English but very helpful.

I stayed with my two elderly parents for one night at the end of April. The hotel is a little farther than we expected, the equivalent of five blocks. We checked in in the evening and at reception, there was a basket of amenities (bar soap, shower cap, etc.). Ladies receive a special gift with masque and other beauty products.

Our room was a "triple." There were two twin beds and a cot. The beds were a little hard but fine. The cot not so much. Also in the room was a desk, mini-fridge with free bottles of water, TV (needs a card, which you can purchase from a machine on the ground floor), small table with two chairs. In the closet, there are slippers (disposable and not). There is an exterior sink with big vanity mirror outside the bathroom with toothbrush/toothpaste and razor and shaving foam. There are large pump bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and shower gel in the bathroom, which contains a sink, Japanese toilet, and bathtub. The room was functional and the interior was quiet and without the cot, would have been veritably roomy for Japan. I would not have wanted to stay there for any length of time, but a couple of nights are fine.

Breakfast was part of our package. We all chose the Japanese breakfast, which included miso soup, fish, rice, salad, pickles, and several other dishes. Except for the fermented beans, everything was really good. Fruit juice, coffee, and tea to drink. Breakfast is served adjacent to the lobby. There is a free internet computer off to the side that you can use.

Because of our luggage, we took a taxi to and from the Shin-Osaka Station, which is 650 - 750 Yen.

This hotel was situated further from the ShinOsaka station than indicated but once we got used to the walk, it was OK.
The breakfast was ample and there were lots of choices BUT you had to decide whether you wanted Western or Japanese and there was NO crossover between the two. This proved to be awkward sometimes!
Our twin room was comfortable and large enough by Japanese standards. The washroom was quite large as well. We chose to stay here as a base for travelling out to other cities: Okayama, Himeji etc. and that aspect worked out very well as the 10 minute walk to the SHIN station was manageable. We stayed for 7 nights and their other hotel (about 3 mins away) had laundry facilities which was great.
Since we were using a JR pass, it was easy to hop the train to get to the Osaka station, about a 7-minute ride.

I stayed 9 nights recently as I needed a hotel very close to Shin Osaka station for my daily touring using the Japan Rail Pass. The Station hotel annexe is just a five minute walk away and was very easy to find on my initial arrival. As a tip if you have luggage exit the station by the East exit, there is an elevator to take you down to street level and a street level walk to the hotel. Leaving the station by the central exit will require the walk up over and down the steep steps of the footbridge over the rail tracks.
The room on the 4th floor was small but well appointed, apart from a lack of storage space for clothes, clean and comfortable. The room overlooked the railway but had great soundproofing and I was not disturbed by the passing frequent trains. Breakfast was also included in the price with a choice of Japanese or western food daily but it was a bit repetative after 9 days, probably most guests only stay over for a night or two. Staff in the restaurant and at reception were very pleasant and helpful even though I don't speak Japanese and only a couple of reception staff spoke English. Another couple of good services offered are free internet use at two pc's in the lobby for a maximum of an hour at a time and a complimentary bottle of water left in the room fridge daily. I'll stay here if I visit Osaka another time.

I booked this hotel needing a cheap place to stay while on an overnight Shinkansen transfer in Osaka. I was pleasantly suprised with my experience.

If you are arriving into Osaka by Shinkansen, the hotel is less than a five-minute walk from the south entrance of the station.

Rooms are small (as you would expect in any Japanese budget hotel), but are very clean and comfortable. The lobby faces the street and railroad tracks, but the annex rooms are in a detached building off of the street and are very quiet. You don't hear any train noise at all.

Breakfast, if not included in your room rate, can be purchased for ¥600 at the front desk. Both Western and Japanese "buffet style" options are available. All hotel staff I encountered were very courteous.

There may be cheaper hotels in Osaka, but you won't beat this location if you're are using the Shin-Osaka station. All the main sights in Osaka are a short subway or JR train ride away, or if you are day-tripping to Kyoto it is about 25 minutes by limited express train.
