This is a perfectly located hotel, particularly if you are coming by train. You don't even need to exit the station, which is useful in the winter when it can be really cold. The rooms however are small, the bathrooms are very clean and well maintained but old fashioned. They're like your grandmother's bathroom, (before dementia).

Really love the location of this place, the center of everything. Close to the food street, shopping centers and street. The airport express, subway station are just downstairs, super convenient.

Very convenient location as it is in the central commercial area of Osaka. Easy access from the airport as train station is located directly underneath the hotel. Walking distance from main attractions like Dotonburi and Kuromon Market. Rooms are clean just a bit old. Great view from the top where daily breakfast buffet is served.

Really happy with this lodging. Excellent city view, great location. Breakfast was expensive, and we were unable to book a package online without breakfast, but it turned out fine and worth it.Try to get a room on the west side for a nice sunset view.
