“Modern and clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

We stayed 2 nights in Nov 2012. The rooms were modern and clean. Could have used more table, counter space, but that was a very minor inconvenience. Tubs are extra high, so be careful getting in and out of the tub - I kept on hitting my knees on the wall. Very powerful and hot shower. Loved it. High tech bathroom with a mirror that doesn't fog up and toilets with warm seats and bidets.

Wifi was only in the lobby and it was hit or miss. Sometimes I couldn't connect, sometimes I could connect.

Great location close to public transportation, lots of shopping, and food. Highly recommend.

Be ready to gain weight, as the hotel is located at the center of the food city of Osaka. 10 minutes walk from Namba or Nihonbashi subway station. Right in the center of all actions, from shopping street to expensive department stores, hundreds of restaurants and food stands for all budgets, night clubs and karaoke. At night, it's closed to red light district, but we did not find anything annoying.
The hotel is fairly new, the staffs are very efficient, friendly and most speak good English. Free WiFi at the lobby, in room LAN. We had a Twin Room and is surprisingly large, very clean, modern lay out, just like in their picture. Security is good as the elevator will need your room card to access your floor.
Overall, this hotel expect all our expectation for the price we paid and will certainly use it as base camp for our future trips to Osaka.

Room Tip: higher floor, as the street is very busy. Twin room seems to be bigger than Double, but their rooms...

we stayed in Hotel Vista for 7 nights in Dec 2011, its a definite choice if you are travelling to Osaka. In terms of budget its very reasonable, around 10 mins walk from Namba station, and just cross the road you will see the bridge, where you will get a lot of good food (yum!) by the river. the small side streets seems a little unsafe at midnight but bear in mind there is a police station just opposite the hotel and there are still a lot of people at every hour of the day (even at 6am). the washroom is a highlight of the hotel, there is a very decent bath tub and the whole room is more than spacious in Japanese standards. i can't explain how good this hotel is, in terms of location/price/room size... excellent in all aspects!

Nice and modern hotel, in a very interesting area. The name of the hotel describes the room we had: a very good view. There in a glass panel in the bathroom, so you could have a bath while you see the room and even the view from the window. Amazing extra. The location is perfect. I would recommend.

Great location, great prices, great room, great toilet, totally awesome place to stay.

First off, the location, right smack in the heart of food central. No lack of places to eat here, okay, the small side streets just off the hotel miiiggght seem a little dodgy but it's still safe here. Train stations are within easy walking distance and lots of shopping to do down at Ebisubashi or Shinsaibashi, both again, within easy walking distance. Even dendentown and amerika-mura is within reach on foot. Just go out shop and head back to the hotel to drop off your bags before heading out for dinner.

Rooms are big (for japan), clean and very comfortable. Toilets are big and full sized which is rare for Japan. No complaints at all. Except for the lack of a view which is just nit-picking.

We opted not to go with the hotel breakfast as there are just soo many eating joints around you. We did not interact with the service staff much except for check-in/out so can't really comment on the service levels. But nothing rude or any of the sort.

Would i stay here again if i was in Osaka? Sure would. No regrets at all.

The walk to the station that brings you back to Kansai airport is slightly further than the regular stations but since you'd probably only do it once or at most twice, is still ok.

Hotel is nice and modern , located in the middle of Dotonbori with lots to do right at its door step. Rooms are large (for Japan & this price) well appointed with a decent sized desk/work area. Staff were friendly and helpful.

What can we say - what a location! Right in center of the entertainment district of Osaka (Dotonbori). hundreds of restaurant, clubs, bars, shops and pretty people.
Normally, you may think that such areas are rough or perhaps slightly dangerous.... but not in japan, and certainly not in this amazing city. you can do everything by foot, just walk along the streets that cross the hotels and you are in a middle of an oasis or neon lights and exotic smells of good food and perfumes.
the hotel itself is very nice (except the lack of wifi, like the rest of japan). nice service, room and free internet station at the lobby.
