We had SUCH a great stay at The Lively in Osaka. It's about a block from the Sakaisuji-Hommachi station, which quickly takes you right to Nihombashi (near Dotonbori and Namba) and Osaka Castle. It's next to a 7-Eleven, which is super convenient too. The room was small (typical in Osaka) but very efficiently designed and stylish. Housekeeping cleaned our room every day, even when we left later in the day (jet lag!) and always replenished our coffee and bottled water in the room. Self check-in was super easy, and very much welcome since we looked pretty dishelved after a very, very long travel day!
We stayed here as a family of five. It was a wonderful brand new hotel with a spacious family room. Nice features included bathrobes to wear and free beers at the bar. The service was fantastic and value for money even better. It was in a very convenient location to access public transport, especially to get to universal studios (highly recommended). Would stay here again!
Amazing property, beautiful, design, modern and very well managed. Beside the great facilities, including a restaurant offering good food and a bar offering meticulously crafted cocktails, the team was truly delightful ; from the reception to the housekeeping, service at the restaurant and bar.
Beautiful clean rooms with everything you need we stayed one night i loved the free beer from 17:30 to 18:30. The rooftop got a beautiful design as well. The bed was super comfy!! The staff was very helpful and polite. I would definitely stay again.
We loved the hotel so much we extended the stay twice. That also meant we got to try three types of room, and all were so well designed -- in style and functionality. The rooms felt larger than the pictures suggest they are. If you want to work in the room, then King Premier is the best choice. Otherwise, there's a huge communal workspace. The location was great, especially with a bicycle rental spot next door -- Osaka is a city perfect for cycling, and having such easy access to bicycles transformed the trip for us. Free beer is a pretty good perk. And finally, the service was spot on -- friendly, helpful, genuine. This hotel exceeded expectations in every sense.
A new, clean, crisp hotel in Central Osaka. Rooms are well appointed, stylish, with an urban rustic chic decor. Recently stopped here for part business/pleasure whilst in Osaka. En-suite bathroom is well appointed, comfortable bed, pillows. Business Suite open to hotel residents for work related activities...Location is great for Metro for getting around the city. Well worth considering for your future plans in Osaka...
Room was new, clean and spacious . It was spacious compared to most hotels in Japan. Location was close to subway. Close to a shopping mall for cheap clothes and small items. The free beer at the hotel was nice!
After cancelling a part of our trip we stayed in Osaka for an extra night and choose The Lively Honmachi because of it's location close to the metro lines we needed. That turned out to be a great choice, check in went smoothly, the room was modern with an actual shower and soft beds, my wife really enjoyed having Netflix for a night as well. The food and free beers were a great bonus and the restaurant and bar area's were fun. Great hotel, would definitly stay again, especially at this price point.
This hotel was good value for money, in a good location for the metro lines in Osaka and with spacious rooms. Totally recommended especially for short stays. The cleaning could be improved. They do offer vouchers in exchange for cleaning which I would recommend taking as cleaning during stays mainly involves bathroom and sink but dusting, vacuuming and bed sheets are not changed until check out.
The staff at The Lively were amazing and helpful at all times. The rooms were new and comfortable, however can be a little squishy with two people and two suitcases, however this was to be expected. Free beers in the evening was the cherry on top! Would 100% recommend this hotel to anyone and would stay here again.
