“Awesome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

This hotel is in an excellent position. Located in the hub of Doton bori, lots of shopping and places to eat all in walking distance. View of the river from our room and the ligjts st night are fantastic.The manager was extremely helpful. He called the next hotel we were staying (in Hakone-450km away) to check the best wsy to get there. While we were out he printed a schedule of our shinkansen train and let us know that our next hotel can get a car to pick us up from the station.

This was our first trip to Japan. We were originally having trouble on-line finding accommodation for a family of four in Osaka. We went to Flight Centre and they found Kaneyoshi Ryokan. We needed two nights accommmodation in Osaka for our initial stay before heading to Mt Koyasan (another great location). Our flight had us arriving late, however the front desk host (we can't remember his name) was extremely helpful. The room was made up with four beds and was representative of the traditional Japanese Ryokan room despite being in the middle of Osaka. On the first night (in the rain) we took a taxi from Namba Station to the Ryokan (not far). The Ryokan was convenient to the nearby subway line and we had no trouble getting to Universal Studios the next day. Another long day and we arrived back late and after dark. Our beds were all made up. It is surprising how comfortable the traditional Japanese beds are. The next day we were leaving the Ryokan and off to Koyasan. The front desk host was extremely friendly and helpful and his English was also very good. He arranged to send 3 of our 4 bags to our next Osaka hotel (we only wanted to take one bag with us to Koyasan). He provided detailed information on express train schedules to avoid numerous train hopping and he also provided us and our children with gifts. We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a pity we could not have returned after our visit to Koyasan, however the Ryokan was already booked out for those dates. If you are visiting Osaka and want a more traditional Japanese accommodation experience, you won't be disappointed.

This is already my 2nd time to stay in Kaneyoshi.
The location is perfect, locate in the heart of Osaka. Very convenient to go around for shopping, eating and entertainment. It's also near the metro station to access the most of main spots.
Inside the ryokan is clean and the room is quite big with the window view to Dotonbori.
I especially love their public bath in 6F to relax my legs after the long walking day.
The staff are really nice, polite and always keep with smile. Also, I forgot something in the room this time and Mr. Masanori is so kind to send back to me. Really appreciate it and highly recommend for stay when visit Osaka.

Throughout our 2 week Japanese adventure, my sister nagged and nagged me to book a night in a Japanese Ryokan.
I was hesitant, as I had researched a few places with paper thin walls and communal bathing ( clearly not my style Ya' know).

Whilst in Osaka, we decided we would do it, so the night before I booked a room for 3. The hotel was a little difficult to navigate to, only because we walked from our other hotel, and obviously can't navigate that well - being females and all ;)

When we arrived, the loveliest man greeted us and welcomed us with a big smile. His English was amazing, and he assisted us with our bags.

We were quite early, a few hours before check in, but he arranged to have our bags taken to our room. When we went up to our rooms, I was pleasantly surprised! The room was awesome- great views, smelt clean, sizeable living/sleeping area with a traditional Japanese table and tea set, as well as a nice sized bathroom.

Our bags were waiting, and we were told to let the staff know when we were ready for bed ( so they could come and make our beds up). We us our showers after a humid day in Osaka, then went out for dinner. Just behind us was the river, and alongside it were lanterns and heaps of restaurants!

When we got back, our beds were made and we just jumped in!

I could not have any bad comment about this place! Once again, the hotel host was so lovely, he kept us up to date about the approaching Typhoon and helped us with directions.

If I ever travel back to Osaka ( I definitely will!!) I will be coming back here, for a longer stay!

Thank you!

Stayed here one night and ordered the breakfast/dinner package.. well worth it. The hosts were extremely helpful in providing us with a layout of the city as well as to make us feel perfectly at ease in the Ryokan.

There is one main room for eating/sleeping as well as a side room which acts as a sun room overlooking the river, perfect for having a quiet read.

The dinner was.. an experience. I don't think I have ever eaten as much as I did that night.. unless it was the next morning having breakfast.

Definitely worth the visit if you can.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river.. amazing views and good sun.

What a wonderful place to stay. Despite other comments in regards to decor it is very easy to look past this when staying in such a fantastic location. As other posts have alluded to the staff are amazing - the cleaning staff are excellent, clean the rooms everyday and make your bed. The staff at the front desk are extremely helpful providing information about trains and even provided a gift to apologise about the size of our room (which was very spacious). If you come to Osaka and want to stay in the excellent location of Dontonbori this is the place!! Close proximity to everything you need. Wifi speeds within the ryokan are awesome!

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a week long trip around Honshu. Was keen to experience a Japanese Ryokan but did not want to spend $$$ so booked based on recommendations per Trip Advisor. Our initial impressions were similar to another contributor, somewhat disappointed on arrival with hotel older style, dated decor and basic amenities.However they make up for this with exceptional customer service and spacious rooms which are spotlessly clean. Location is also another winner. Could not ask for a better spot, downtown next to Dotonbori.
We also had our own bathroom which I would highly recommend. Rather than take advantage of the hotel breakfast and dinner options we elected to eat out since there was so much choice given the benefit of location. The convenience stores nearby also great for buying breakfast items as the room has a small fridge. A great experience all round.
