Really enjoyed our stay at this modern funky hotel. Excellent rooms, very clean and well appointed, fantastic staff and super convenient location. Access to unlimited coffee from the machine in the foyer and a cute little library and TV area. Would definitely book to stay again.

Hotel's Favorite
This is an amazing hotel and I cannot recommend Hotel the Flag highly enough! We stayed here for three night during our stay our baby was ill the hotel organised us to go to the emergency hospital and sent their staff with us so we would have an interpreter. This was a massive gesture that they didn't have to do and it was a huge help to us. Everyone at the hotel went above and beyond! Now more about the hotel. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. They provide complimentary baby cot which we found hard to find in Japan. You can hire for free other amenities such as a humidifier, make up wipes, baby bath etc. There is a library, laundry facilities, a fire place and good coffee. The breakfast had a great mix between Japanese and western choices. So many yummy cakes which I especially enjoyed for breastfast. The location is perfect with great restaurants all around the hotel. The staff are phenomenal too. Stop looking at other hotels and stay here. You won't regret it.

The Flag in Shinsaibashi was probably the most comfortable room we had during our entire trip in Japan. Considering the very central and practically ideal location, was the room spacious, quite and comfortable. Obviously did we do a lot of walking in Osaka, but we slept like babies during night time, which I also attribute to the bed & room. Very stylish, feels new and really an awesome place to stay while exploring Osaka!

This seems like a newer hotel as everything looked spotless and brand new; the common areas in particular are decorated to a high standard, and are very design orientated. If you're into this (like me) you will notice these things! The location was excellent, tucked down a side street but super close to the hustle and bustle of Shinsaibashi. The room itself was surprisingly basic but had everything we needed - I found prices a little high so didn't plump for a deluxe room so I guess the spec would have been higher if I'd paid more. Nevertheless, the amenities in the standard room were great - included in our room was a fridge (that was filled regularly with water), TV, air con, humidifier, pyjamas, slippers, hairdryer (full sized) and lots of towels. The shower in particular was great, it was really powerful/hot! The toiletries were all full sized and high quality, and little extras like a comb etc were also included. The dining room was spacious and, again, tastefully decorated. But the thing that stood out most was the quality of food - WOW! It's the best breakfast I've ever experienced at a hotel. The variety was incredible - there was a range of beverages, cakes, pastries, salad/veg, dressings, cooked breakfast items (e.g. bacon, eggs), breads, Japanese dishes and other international options. Sadly, because of the coronavirus pandemic, we only experienced this spread once as the hotel was forced to stop serving buffet style breakfasts the next day but I still dream of it! There is also a great lounge area (they call it the Library) with a massive TV, lots of books and free coffee/tea. It's a great place to relax after a long day of site seeing. Although we didn't use the other facilities, we noted there was a very stylish looking laundry room plus a smoking room. Like most places in Japan, the service was excellent - check in was smooth and the staff took care to explain every detail. They spoke excellent English. We also took advantage of the luggage forwarding service at the hotel, which was very reasonably priced. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place!
