Second time to visit, first time stay. Well located only three short blocks from Glicko Man and the Bridge in older section of Dotonbori. As cute as the exterior is and as nice as its location, what really sets the Hotel Dotonbori apart is their outstanding staff. Courteous, friendly, and oh-so-helpful with any and all queries. Multilingual and very professional.... More

Location: 5/5 Extremely convenient! I left Namba Station難波(north exit) with my luggage and walked straightly along the main road; just a few minutes’ walk off the main road. I took 10 min walking to OCAT express bus station for catching the direct express bus to Arima Onsen 有馬温泉(the latest bus departs at 14:50). Service: 5/5 All staff rendered their service... More

The hotel is situated in a very convenient location - Dotonbori. Easily accessible from Kansai Airport via Nanhai Electric Train to Namba Station, then just take less than 10 minutes walk. Around the hotel are restaurants, shops and everything. The room is quite small, but I understand that this is normal for Japanese hotels. The hotel provides quite a lot... More

A comfortable small scale hotel. Close proximity to airport and subway, pleasant service and clean room. We are a family of three and this room offers triple bed but as the room is so small there's hardly any space in the room other than the three beds, but all in all its not bad and the staff were all friendly...

Location: 5/5 Extremely convenient. Right in the centre of the city. Located in Dotonbori (food) and is within walking distance to Shinsaibashi (shopping). Easy access to all of Namba's train stations (subway, JR, Kintetsu, Nankai). Amenities: 4/5 Clean and sufficient. Nice to see that the showers have improved since the renovation. But don't expect a big, luxurious room. Service: 5/5... More

The Dotonbori Hotel is most certainly the most interesting looking hotel. With it's four faces, it is easy to find and makes an impact. The check-in process was simple and painless.

Though rooms are small and very basic, STILL its a good place to stay in Osaka. It is in a Strategic location and in the quiet side of Dotonbori. Restaurants, convenience stores, dotonbori shopping street are all in the area. Smooth check-in and almost everything is for free. They even handed me a complimentary pampering gift which i really liked.... More

For a budget hotel it was a cut above the average. They offer a few extras like free noodles from 5pm-6pm, late night ramen and late night beer and wine for free. Room was very clean and comfortable. Great dining nearby in Dotonbori. Breakfast at the hotel was cheap at ¥800 and great value
