“Nice large foyer area very small rooms, great location.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Stayed at Hotel il cuore namba in Osaka for 3 nights and while the location is fantastic and walking distance to the city of osaka only a couple of minutes away where you have access to hundreds of fine restaruants and thousands of shops to eat and shop until you drop.
The hotel has a large foyer area and fantastic helpful staff but the rooms are very small and bathroom also very small, views from windows with nothing to see except for buildings next door or rear of restaruants.
Very bad wi-fi connections and always having trouble, no english speaking channels on TV and no Dvd players to try and watch english speaking movies.
Rooms are clean and tidy and very helpfull cleaning staff but not value for money but then again very hard to find hotels in japan with large rooms unless paying rediculous room charge.
would recommend for very short stay only or single person only.

Room Tip: Room facing main road if wanting view.

Stayed 5 nights in this hotel and it just NEVER have the feeling of " oh lord, still have to walk for another 10 min from the station." because it is SO SO near to Namba Station Exit 5 (Midosuji Line, Red), like within 5 mins walk.

Within 5 mins walk from the hotel, there is a street FULL of eatery outlets and few convinient shops. It is all walking distance to Namba/Kuromon Wet Market (15 min), Dotonburi/Shinsaibashi (20min). You will never get tired during the walking because the area are just bustling with shops shops and shops... :P

As for the hotel itself, the staffs were able to communicate in English and they were very friendly and polite. I asked them few times for the direction and they gave me map and showed me how to go to the location.

Few steps from the lobby there is a lounge with coffee machines (FREE)... it is good there because we often sit there and wait for our travel mates. Also this hotel is fully equipped with WIFI.

Attached some pictures taken around the hotel/station.

Room Tip: The aircon controller in each room is centralised. So if you find it is too hot (while the cold mode...

I stayed at the hotel from 22 Nov - 25 Nov 2013. It was the first time for me to stay in this hotel. I found its location is easy accessible since I just got off nankai train and took only 5 minutes to arrive the hotel. It really saved a lot of time for me. Also, the hotel is clean and the room size is acceptable with reasonable rates. I am satisfied with it and definitely will stay in this hotel on my next trip to Osaka.

Stopped here for 2 nights whilst travelling in Japan. Small but very nice hotel. Spotlessly clean, friendly helpful staff and great variety for breakfast. Good location, would definitely use it again.

The hotel location is excellent within walking distance from Namba station and it is surrounded with shopping malls, restaurants and other facilities in Namba district. Hotel check-in process made easy with the auto-pay machine and issuance of room key card at one go. Single room is spacious and clean with free Wi-Fi together with other basic facility a traveller might need. Outlook of the hotel might look slightly old, but the hotel lobby and room looks refurbished. Check out the entrance walkway leading to registration lobby, it exudes classy and upbeat modern charisma.

A few minutes walk from the Namba stations and all their associated services; restaurants, shopping malls, department stores. Very easy access from Kansai Airport. Excellent service and facilities a cut above the usual Japanese business hotel although the prices are about the same as the competition. Room was modern, clean, fully equipped and everything worked. Room had a panoramic view of Osaka. An ideal base for exploring Osaka region.
