“Good value hotel in Osaka”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

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.

Room Tip: The standard twin rooms were a good size for 2 adults. The beds are full sized and the toiletries ar...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2010

This hotel is out in the sticks a bit, but we didn’t mind that as we had the subway and the new tram line right at the front door. So you need to travel quite a few stops to get into Osaka city. It’s a bit of a weird set up. A small shopping mall – called “Osker Dream” – with a huge 100YEN shop, a gym, some restaurants and a lot of old closed shops, and you take the lift to the 8th floor to get to the reception of the hotel. We booked non-smoking rooms, but got smoking rooms – which they fixed up on the second night for us. Breakfast was good and plentiful with both western and Japanese options and a high chair for my son. It’s a very old hotel that could do with some updating – however rooms are very large for Japanese standards. There are free washing machines and free massage chairs on level 10. Staff were very nice, and looked after us well. We got a really cheap rate – I wouldn’t stay here again unless the rate was great. I'd recommend staying within walking distance of Dotonbori.
