Very decent hotel. Staff spoke good english, very polite and willing to help- lots of maps etc available. The location is perfect, around the corner from main shopping and eating areas. The subway station is also just a few minutes walk. The room and bathroom is relatively small, but certainly enough for two people. Breakfast is included- rather limited choice... More

Like we say, it did the job! Well situated and polite staff. Room small and very small if you come from North America! Everything in the room works well. Small bathroom with good water pressure. Our window frosted, so it is like no window!! Despite the fact that we were in the city action we did not hear any noise... More

It' a decent budget hotel with comfortable rooms, though very small. Located just moments from the Shinsaibashi subway and practically within the famous mall complex that seems to stretch the length of the city. The check-in staff were the least welcoming I have found in Japan... so much so I found myself asking if I'd committed some oblivious cultural faux-pas... More

Great location for exploring Osaka - especially if you like shopping. Location is excellent for places to eat and visiting. Rooms were compact but very clean and well laid out. Great for a few days. Breakfast was good. Service was good.

Booked there for 3 nights. It was beside the shinsaibashi shopping street. Nearest subway is the Midosouji line. Its a 5 minute walk towards the subway. But around 10 mins walk to dotonbori. Rooms were comfortable and has a Foot massager inside, perfect for those tired feet! Breakfast was ok, grilled salmon, vegetable, hasbrowns, noodlea, bread, etc. And it was... More

We spend 2 nights in Osaka and the Villa Fontaine was just perfect. Very well located and clean rooms. Two small things: the breakfast was average and the receptionists were not always very welcoming. We however certainly would come back in the future.

We only spent one night at the Villa Fontaine and for a short stay it was just fine. The rooms are average size for Japan, and the bathroom is small but has everything you need. The room was beginning to look a little tired compared to some other places that we stayed, but it was clean and tidy enough. The... More

This place is just a stone throw from the main shopping street, and certainly close to its namesake metro station (2-5 minutes walk depending on where you count from). Its located on the least interesting part of the Shinsaibashi-suji, but things will get interesting south of there, so its convenient enough for most shoppers. For people who want to make... More

My family stayed in this hotel about 6 years ago and place was new and service was good as they provided coffee/tea/milo machine at each level for guests to use. Back to this same hotel for a two nights stay but things have changed. Breakfast was lots of fried oily stuff and the drink machine was taken away. The staff... More
