Great hotel with many random things in it e.g free massage chairs. Was in a fantastic location with access to many different bars/restaurant and shopping. The bathroom is quiet small though. There was a laundry and the wifi was really good too.

The best thing about this place is the location. You can walk 500m up the road and you get all the awesome street food, restaurants, and bars. The room was simple, but clean and had everything I needed. Staff spoke English well and were helpful.

Very good location, about 5 mins walk to Namba subway stn, right in the middle of shopping area shinsaibashi. Hotel staff were very helpful and efficient. Free coffee and food were provided at the hotel lobby for supper. One of their staff Mr Bir Bal was very helpful when we encountered some problems. Highly recommended hotel if you're visiting Osaka!

Fast and attentive service from Lee at check-in. Meticulous and caring detail from Maruyama who assisted my wife and I in wearing a Japanese attire. Room is small just like in most Japanese hotels. Complete room and bathroom amenities, including a humidifier. Very clean, kudos to the housekeepers. Every comfort was well thought of in the room. 5-10 minutes from...
