Large room, with interesting attractive decor. Small bathroom but clean and functional. Bed rolls were hard, may be possible to ask for a double roll as we got in a lot of other hotels. Not particularly quiet but that goes with the location.

We arrived late in the evening on the Kansai Rapit from the airport. The hotel is almost right outside the Kansai train station. The check-in was fast. The front desk was expecting us since it was a rather late arrival. The reception is on 8th floor and our room is on 7th floor. The hallway on the 7th floor is... More

We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights dec 2015. We had a Japanese style room with breakfast included. The room was a tatami room and a very traditional feel. The furniture was a limitless old and dated but the room was clean and comfortable. It was getting just a little bit squeezy since we had 5 adults. (We had... More

Located near Namba station with Takashimaya and Shinsaibashi street, very convenient to get around and do some shopping or exploring. Hotel provided a ryokan-like breakfast which we thoroughly enjoyed! :) Room was in good condition and staff were very helpful!

You see a lot of glowing reviews of this place. Not sure what the reviewers mean. Are they actually paying >$150 U.S. for a room with just breakfast???? Maybe it's worth the ryokan-like ambience in the middle of Namba, replete with tatami floors. My one experience with this place is a room for $78 U.S. with a wonderful, authentic, ryokan... More

Stayed in this nice little hotel twicein Dec 2015. First, when we first landed in Osaka and subsequently when we returned again from Kyoto. The location of this hotel is superb. Right in the centre of Namba where all the action is. For people coming from Itami airport, the airport limousine bus service stops right in front of the hotel.... More

Stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is small coz the guestrooms are only at 6/F and 7/F of the building, other floors seem to be function rooms or rented to other organizations/ companies. No worry for security though, because you need to put the keyholder of the room key on the sensor inside the elevator in order to access... More

A hotel, but also a ryoken, a traditional Japanese-style hotel. Now, I’ve stayed in other beautiful ryokens, but this one is in my favourite city in Japan, Osaka, where I lived for three years. Veronica and I stayed there two cold February nights, but the genuine warmth of the staff, and the warmth of our spacious tatami mat room helped... More
