The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the nearby tube station. By day the area looks busy and not very friendly. On arriving at the hotel from the outside it wasn't promising but as soon as you get inside it is an oasis of calm. We were greeted with a smile and asked to sit down. Within seconds a... More

First off you can't beat the location! Right across the street from dotonbori! 40 min walk to Osaka castle. 5mins from the train station. Perfect. The staff couldn't speak much English but they were very polite and communicated well with a room confusion before we arrived. The fact that you have your own private onsen for hotel stays was amazing!... More

I chose Yamatoya Honten because I wanted to experience a traditional japanese guesthouse (ryokan) instead of staying in ordinary hotel and I was happy I made that decision because we (family with 3 children) had such a great experience here. The staff spoke english and very helpful. The room was very clean and I felt comfortable sleeping on futon mattress... More

I don't usually give hotels a bad review so it's unfortunate that I have to in this case. This hotel is ideally located next to the Dontonburi area. Frankly it's a perfect location for tourists. However, the first room we were given was a disgrace. Around 1/3 of the floor tiles in the bathroom were missing, walls and doors badly... More

We booked this ryokan, the second on our trip so we knew what to expect. We loved the traditional Japanese room, from afar it looked nice. But upon closer inspection, there were dirty marks on the walls, the duvets smelled of smoke (despite it being a non-smoking room), the bath had multiple hairs in it (not mine or my partners)....

I cannot recommend this place enough. Their location (on the Dontenbori, 2 minutes north of Nipponbashi exit 6) is very handy for Osaka shopping and is a single stop from the Midosuji line for Shin-osaka station.

The best part of this place for me was the location near Nippombashi and walking distance to Namba Station. The hotel is also right at the Nippombashi entrance of Dotonbori street as well as walking distance to Kuromon market. We got a nice room (622) facing the river and Dotonbouri street. The place looks a littlw worn but it was... More

This was our first experience of a traditional Japanese style accommodation. Our room also had a TV. The public bath is located in the basement and was a great experience after a full day of walking and exploring the city. Service was very polite and helpful. Great location for the Dotonbori along the river. Also convenient for train station.
