Room was old, it needed to be renovated, but, room was kept clean and had minimum equipments as bath, TV, Wifi, refrigerator and so on. As other badgetary level Japanese hotels,room was small and functional.Location was satisfactory.... More

Great sleep at night ! The hotel is located nearby Keihan train station and Temmabshi subway is just across the street. Osaka Castle is 20 minutes walk from this hotel. Reception counter is on 2nd floor, and the staff is very helpful. The room was clean and tidy with private bathroom, overall we were happy to stay there for 3... More

This is a budget motel - no frills. My room was a little dated however reasonably clean. It was nice to have a decent size fridge in the room and the staff were friendly. The location is good, just diagonally across the road to the train station and Starbucks and around a 15 minute walk to the Osaka Castle.

Check-in was a little tough as hardly any of the staff spoke English, but through the wonders of hand motions we were able to check-in soon enough. The room is pretty small (there's a bed, small desk, and closet) and the bathroom is pretty much the equivalent of an airplane bathroom with a tub added to it, but hey it's... More

The room looks recently renovated but there are aging stains in the bathroom and dust accumulated in less obvious places, but nevertheless it is clean and tidy. The toilet seat does not seem to fit the toilet bowl very well, and the automatic washing functions look very basic compared to even department store toilets. Nevertheless, staff are very courteous and... More

Check in and check out was so easy and fast! We liked the room and it was extremely comfortable. The bed was nice and the room was a lot bigger than expected. We enjoyed this as our last night in Japan and would definitely come back again!

The room seemed like there has been time since the last renovation and cleaning hasn't been perfect either... there were stains everywhere. Though, wi fi is really good , air conditioning works and the place is close to subway and restaurants.

Our last hotel during a three week trip in Japan and this was definitely the worst hotel of the journey. The room is clean but the service is poor.

Nice hotel, very close to the Tenmabashi station and the Keihan Railway, which takes you straight to Kyoto if you're here for travel. It's also a walking distance to Osaka Castle. If you're a tourist though, be warned that from Tenmabashi station, you would need to transfer subway lines if you want to go to all other touristy areas in... More

“Some rooms have giant fridges, some have smaller ones. My room had a normal fridge for a hotel, but my cousin's room had a giant fridge, which takes up too much space. Maybe ask for a room with a smaller fridge.”
