This was our first hotel during our trip to Japan, and it set quite a high standard.
The room was relatively small but very clean and elegant. Please do not make the same mistake I did and open the window (might trigger some sort of alarm) - expect a call from reception if you do.
Being located above a main railway station, which is connected to a few other stations by a series of underground tunnels filled with shops and restaurants, made travel more bearable in the middle of Winter.
There was a large, very well stocked supermarket downstairs - we did not encounter any others quite like it during the rest of our trip, especially in terms of range and value.
It was a short walk away from Dotonbori, a district famous for its takoyaki and bustling nightlife. You need not worry about dying from starvation or boredom if you stay at this hotel. If only the same could be said of hotels in Sydney.
