This hotel is fairly convenient located - within easy walking distance to subway station, although can be a little hard to find for foreigners. Room was clean and fairly modern, more suitable for business or solo travelers. Families might find the rooms a bit small.

Located close to the East Exit of JR Shin Osaka Station. The room is very tiny and the facility is very basic. The room temperature is very warm even though we turn down the heat. As the hotel is very close to the rail track, we get the noise from the trains passing by. They offer the free breakfast and... More

If you have a layover in Osaka, need to be near to the Shin-Osaka station and are on a budget then this is a clean, well-located option. It’s a 400m walk from the Southeast Exit of the station and there are no streets to cross. Some rooms have views of the Shinkansen tracks if you are a trainspotter. The rooms... More

We have stayed in other Japanese business-style hotel chains before and we are so glad we discovered the Via Inn chain. This is one their hotels around the Shin Osaka area - the closest one in fact - and so easy to get to! Exit through the East Gate, down the stairs (or lift), go left and walk towards the... More

As others have said, this hotel is near to Shin-Osaka Station, which provides speedy Shinkansen and local train service to cities like Kyoto, Kobe and even Hiroshima. This is a big advantage over hotels in Umeda and Namba because an extra journey on metro may be needed if you travel from these areas to the above-mentioned places. The rooms are... More

As with all the Via Inns, this is a great hotel used mostly by Japanese business people. Clean, efficient, simple and very reasonable. This one is located just outside the south exit doors of Shin Osaka train station. Highly recommend for travellers who want a nice hotel that is not for show. Keep in mind rooms are much smaller than... More

Great location as it's just a 5 min walking distance from Shin-Osaka station. But the rooms are tiny (we stayed as a couple). After parking our luggages, there's hardly space left to walk around the room! And the noise from the nearby train tracks can be heard (although minimal after midnight). The breakfast is nothing to wake up for (although... More

The hotel is located very close to the shin-osaka station but the hotel and the room itself are very small and narrow keeping some good standards in terms of cleanliness and amenities. The receptionists didn't speak good English and that was a minus

As the last hotel we're staying during our trip in Japan, we're looking for a pleasant hotel to stay but we didn't have budget left for a 5-star hotel. We went for Via Inn as it seems to have a better standard (looking at the website) compared to its business hotel counterparts. We weren't mistaken. The room is modernly decorated,... More
