“Basic accommodation, location a little suss...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

Weren't super impressed with this hotel.

Room was pretty dingy and old - coped by consuming the cheap (compared to Aussie prices) liquor from the store a couple of doors down. Window part opened - and opened onto an alleyway, but needed to do that to air the room each arvo. Room smelt smoky. Bathroom wasn't particularly nice. Room was very small - only option was to sit on the bed. Was advertised as being good for long-term stays and I'd have to disagree. One plus was access to the coin laundry.

While near-ish to an underground entrance that takes you to the station, I wouldn't call it that near, or that easy to find, either. The hotel seemed to be in a bit of a seedy area of town as well.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2009

The hotel has one of the cheapest rates in Osaka. We spent 9,600 Yen a night for a room with 4 beds. The room is quite small though and looks quite, and the cleanliness of the room is generally acceptable just don't use the cups in the toilet as they seem like they haven't cleaned well. This hotel is located in a small street (alley) in a seedier section Osaka with lots of what seemed like small adult entertainment venues surrounding it. The staff speaks limited English

The hotel is about 15 minutes walk to the JR Osaka Station. IT costs around 570 Yen for a taxicab ride from the Hilton Osaka area. The driver of the cab we took to the hotel doesn't know this hotel. So it could be best to get the address of the hotel in Japanese when you go out so that the driver could input it to the cab's GPS system.
