“Convient location, average facilities”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

This place is a budget hotel favored mostly by Asian tourists. It is right next to Dotonbori, which is a great area for food and drink and shopping (and people watching!) and also close to a subway station one stop away from Namba, a major hub. The rooms are small but serviceable. It's fairly clean, although I'd advise not looking too closely behind the mini fridge.

On the other hand, the rooms are overheated in winter with no way to adjust the temperature. We are used to keeping the house around 18C but this place must have been around 26C. We opened the window but it's pretty noisy outside. Other little things were annoying, like the fact that the room had only one outlet, or that the Wifi was very inconsistent. Like I said, little things.

The breakfast buffet was okay. It wasn't amazing but it wasn't awful. I don't know if we would have paid extra for it though; it was included in our package.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

This hotel is walkable to Nipponbashi subway just 4 min walk, opposite the hotel is Dontobori, walk further end of Dontobori will meet Shinsaibashi streets, the river is just around the corner, you can also walk to the Namba station and the surrounding shopping, underground shops, The Koromon market has few supermarkets is next to the Nipponbashi subway.

the hotel is clean and some staff can understand English and Chinese, a chinese restraurant is at the lobby, many food stall and restraurant is closeby. The room may be small but enough to keep you private and move around

Room Tip: Upper floors more quiet and better view of the city and river

Japanese style hotel. Be prepared for a robust bed and stonelike pillow. When I entered the lobby, I observed a "dusty smell". Maybe the carpet is old, or, the ventilation system "dusty". Also the room could need some ventilation. Too bad that the windows cannot be opened in this time of the year. LAN in the room, refrigerator and water cooked. Vending machine for beverages at each floor. Directly across the hotel a coffee shop. Only 5 minutes walk from the train station. Choice of restaurants on walking distance.

This hotel was conveniently located in Osaka, close to the rail station and subway and just a stroll from Dotombori for some good food and brilliant lights. Aside from this it was a perfectly nice hotel although there wasn’t much that made it stand out. We had a comfortable night’s sleep here and the staff were very helpful, even looking after our massive bags on the day we checked out.

We were there for 3 nights, one to our way to Koyasan and 2 before leaving from Japan. The location is strategic, walking distance from Dotombori and clsoe to namba. Good place if you want to head to Koyasan the day after. A bit anonymous, loads of tourists in the hall any time, small rooms and not extremely clean I would say. At the reception Mr Furusato is the best, his english is "sufficient" but je is extremely available and they kest our luggage for a week, while we were travelling south, with no surchrge

Location a short stroll from the neon-madness that is Dotombori - Perfect location for a hotel - subway to Osaka Train Station connections are nearby and dead-easy to negotiate. Staff are helpful enough and the rooms are adequate. Typical mid-range option, suitable for backpackers who spend a little more and suitable for family and business travellers. The service is adequate. A good option.
Get out and see Osaka - The place is mad :)
