Huge room, with plenty of furniture and appliances. Huge toilet room , with bathtube and shower area and separated little room for the wc. Gentle and kind service at the reception. The price was unbelievably low also considering the sakura period. Only issue... furniture and windows appeared a bit weathered and to be renovated.
Location: From public transport point of view, this hotel is located at a very convenient location. It is only 5 minute walk from subway station Tanimachi 9-chome Station on Tanimachi Line and Kintetsu Osaka-Uehomachi Station. A direct Limousine express bus to Kansai Airport is also available from Kintetsu -Uehomachi Department Store, which also houses the subway station. Tanimachi 9-chome Station on Tanimachi Line is only two stations away from Tenno-ji Central transport hub, which has connections to JR Lines including Express trains to Kansai Airport, Kyoto , Shin-Osaka, and Nara. There are also supermarkets and many convenient stores within five to ten minutes walking distance. Amenities: Very well equipped with plenty of space which is very rare in Japanese Hotels. There are also cooking facilities (with one off extra payment for pots and pans). Tea/Coffee making facilities with daily supplements and microwave are also available. On our second visit we also had a room with cloth washer and a dryer. Television was a mystery to us as instructions were not clear to us. This could very well be a paid subscription service. There was no iron in the room. It was also not very clear whether an iron is available to borrow from the reception. Most likely the staff did not understand what we asked for. Reception/Service: Extremely courteous and helpful. Most can communicate in english but not fluent enough. However some working in the night shifts could not communicate in english at all. As such we never asked assistance in getting the television working or getting an iron. Cleanliness/Sleeping quality: Extremely good. Breakfast/Restaurant: Had breakfast only once. The breakfast had to be ordered the night before and the time for breakfast had to be specified at the time of booking breakfast. The type of menu Western/Japanese style had to be specified. However there are many places to have breakfast around Kintetsu -Uehomachi Department Store and surrounds.…
This hotel has massive rooms by Japan standards, 60+ SQ. meters. Our room contained two double beds, a 3 person couch, a 2 person couch and the room still had plenty of room. The shower room was bigger than many residential bedrooms in Japan! A fridge and microwave allow for simple meals. There were a few 'rules' the hotel had that were not very pleasant. They do not permit anyone who is not a guest of the hotel to enter the rooms. We had someone helping us with our bags when checking in, the desk staff literally ran to the elevator to ensure this person did not go past the lobby. My major issue is the rule is not universally applied. Later in the evening, my wife (Japanese) arrived at the hotel, the front desk had not previously seen her. She walked right into the hotel, into the elevator and they did not question her. If you are going to have a no guest rule, it should be applied to all - not just foreigners. Another issue with the operation of this hotel is their security. They have none. When guests leave the hotel you must turn your room key into the front desk and collect it when you return to the hotel. My issue is with the collection of the keys when you return. They do not verify who you are, do not ask your name or even if you are asking for the correct key. You simply say key for room 101 and they give you the key. Have you ever been to a hotel and not remembered your room number? Were you in 306 or 603? It does not matter at this hotel, any desk staff will give you any key - as long as the registered guest is out of their room you can get the key and enter the room.…
Stayed here for two nights in April 2016. The room was enormous, even by Australian standards for such a reasonable price. All provisions provided which included face masks!!! Comfortable beds, kitchen and lounge area. I'm definitely coming back!!! Also close to station and Namba area.
This hotel is terrible. The staff are i helpful and don't speak very good English. The rooms are large but weird in layout and have very dated decor with wall paper peeling in several places. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable. Location isn't very central with not many restaurants or shops close by. Despite thoroughly enjoying the rest of Japan we didn't enjoy Osaka much and we think this hotel was a large part of the reason.
