The hotel is far from the main shopping district of Namba but there is a subway stop just around the corner so it was no problem getting around. The tram stop is connected to the mall where the hotel is located and will take you to the Aquarium area, Harbor Town. The free breakfast daily is the same everyday but enough. The hotel offers free washing machines (100 yen for dryers), lots of vending machines, free use of massage chairs and 2 computers in the lobby area plus free wired internet. Not bad for the 9,900 yen for a twin sharing room with 2 full size beds. Wish they would provide airport shuttle service tho. There was also a really good Yakiniku restaurant around the corner (behind the hotel parking lot) that served really great meat (sagagyu). There was a MacDonald's 2 blocks away, Yoshinoya and a Family Mart/Daily Yamazaki grocery. The Daiso (100 yen store) in the same building was a great plus too for snacks and water.
