“Good & affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I just checked out of this hotel 2 days ago... Here's my review...

Pros:
Clean room and toilet with shower (cleanliness means a lot to me);
Bed is firm (not too hard, not too soft);
Receptionists speak English reasonably well;
Free wifi in room;
Could leave my luggage with them after I checked out so that I can continue to shop without carrying my luggage around;
Right outside Tanimachi-Yonchome subway station exit 8 (after getting out of the stairs, look up towards your left, should be able to see the hotel sign).

Cons:
Breakfast variety is limited (so I stopped eating it after the 2nd day, but hey, no complaints for the price I'm paying).

Although Tanimachi-Yonchome is not exactly near the popular area like Namba/Shinsaibashi, it is still quite easy to travel to other places by subway. But instead of taking subway, I managed to walk to Shinsaibashi by walking within 25mins. It's also walking distance to nearby attractions like Museum of History and Osaka Castle (walk about 10-15mins).

Conveniently situated near the subway station. Their hotel is always easily recognize from subway station.

Booked 2 twin rooms but were given on different floors. Again no adjacent room available. Lobby have no seats and is small. Breakfast and laundry area are on 2nd level. Convenience Store next door.

Overall all good for this hotel chain.

The wifi stopped working in the rooms and they did not seem that concerned. There is no lobby to sit and check emails either. The room was fine, not too big, not too small. The breakfast was fine. The people at the front desk spoke English pretty well. I was able to walk to the river, Castle and about 30-40 minutes to Dontonburi nightlife area.

I booked this hotel through their website. Their price was good. and hotel easy to reach by subway, get off at station Tanimachi 4 chome. (Exit #8). Once you get on street level the hotel is right there on your left. Just look up to the sky and you will see it. I arrived close to midnight and found the hotel easily. If arriving late, make sure you note this in your reservation so they keep your booking. You can only book the hotel 2 month in advanced.

Location wise the area is quiet, not the city centre full of shops and at night it is quiet. But the hotel is good if you want something right in front of the subway station (I wanted this because I didn't want to carry large suitcases for a long time). Note many of the subways, only have stairs and no lifts, so bear that in mind if you want to bring heavy suitcases.

I have stayed at 3 of these Toyoko Inns around Osaka and Kyoto and I have found them all to be great. They all have the same standard and the rooms are the same set up. Rooms are small, but this is what all hotels in Japan are like.

The great thing is, each room has free internet connection. They provide the LAN cable in each room and the internet is quite fast. They also have free computers and internet in the Lobby (this is also for all Toyoko inns around Japan). This lobby is tiny, no seats.

Toilets have bidets which are seats that can wash your bottom.

Toyoko inns also give guests free breakfast each morning. Rice balls, miso soup, tea/coffee. Breakfast is from 7am-9.30am. Breakfast is on the 2nd floor. with a seating area. The vending machine is also on the 2nd floor. They also have a filtered water dispenser here.

Check in is at 4pm. check out 10am. But you can always leave your bags if you arrive early or leave late.

You must pay once you check in, and the staff at the desks are all women, hotel manager is a woman. They are all friendly.

The hotel has a laundry machine, but the instructions are all in Japanese. They have a vending machine which is well priced compared to outside.

  • Liked — Free internet in room and in lobby. Price is good.
  • Disliked — nothing
