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....

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

We were delighted walking up the street from the train station to find the 'statue hotel' (very easy to spot!) -- and our friends back home couldn't get enough of our photos of the place. The staff were so helpful and friendly, even assisting us...

My aunt and I stayed at this hotel for two nights while we were visiting Osaka on a multi-city trip, and we agreed that this was the best hotel we stayed at overall. The staff was multilingual, so there was always someone at the front desk who could speak English. We were greeted with amenity gift bags--never seen those at...

And though rooms were not available through their online booking, Orio answered my questions promptly and allowed me to book a room not available online as I emailed more than 3 months before our stay.
