My family stayed in this hotel end of December 2012, made a side trip to Kyoto, then returned to spend New Year 2013 in this hotel. While Osaka doesn't have much in way of celebration, having my family and my sister's family afforded us an intimate get together in the hotel's excellent restaurants.
Swissotel's location is perfect especially when going in the winter. From the airport, you simply board the train that goes straight to Namba station. From Namba station, you get off the platform, make a turn and voila! The hotel is right there. No need to get out in the cold wintry streets.
It is also conveniently located adjacent to Takashimaya department store where the basement is a veritable treasure trove of Japanese food, from sushi to a wide array of bento boxed meals that you can grab and take to your room.
Simply cross the street and find yourself in the exciting Dotonburi area where you can shop til you drop, get back to the hotel and throw your weary body into the most comfortable beds. I loved the nespresso machine too and the free wifi.
