The location was central. The hotel rooms were small but adequate, and there was an ice machine and microwave and coin laundry on the upper floor. The breakfasts were interesting and had variety. There was free coffee and hot water in the lobby. Not a bad hotel, would consider again.

From Kansai airport, take the Nankai express to Namba station. The Nankai Rapi express costs about 200Y more & saves only10 minutes. Il Cuore is only 5 min. walk from Namba station & Takashimaya Dept. store, also walking distance to Shinsaibashi, Dotonbori, Kuromon, etc. A/C was not working. Staff advised us to open the window, but traffic is very noisy.... More

My second stay at this hotel - the first one was a few years ago, but am still impressed with the location and service. The room was thoroughly cleaned on a daily basis even though I rarely made use of it being outside most of the time. The bathroom had complimentary large containers with shampoo, soap, air refresher, shaving lotion... More

I loved my stay at Il Cuore Namba. I was here by myself for work and wanted to be close to the action so I could just walk out at night for a bite or some shopping without having to take metro's etc. This hotel is just perfect for that. It is just 2 minutes from Namba station and you... More

Convenient to airport subway, near department stores and shopping areas, familymart is near the hotel, clean and tidy, room size is little bit bigger than usual business hotel in Japan. Already stayed twice on this hotel. But not near JR station.方便機場地鐵,靠近百貨公司和購物區,familymar在酒店附近,乾淨整潔,房間大小比一般的商務酒店 在日本稍大。已經在這家酒店住了兩次。但不靠近JR車站

I booked this hotel for my family on their trip. Location is the best quality of this hotel, being within walking distance from a lot of eating places, Takashimaya, the trains (the train from Osaka goes directly to the station close to the hotel), Dotonbori, etc. And although the district is very busy, the hotel is tucked in a quiet...

Compact hotel but it did the job. Great location as it is a few steps away from Nankai Namba station, Dotonburi and Shinsaibashi. Room was quite small, but that is to be expected in Japan. Check in was easy as we booked the hotel on Agoda. Value for money indeed.

The best thing about this place is its location to Namba station - only a minute walk! The hotel itself is more or less what you would get for the price in Japan - clean, decently-serviced, good housekeeping, nice staff. Nothing spectacular that stands out, but on the other hand, it is a perfectly great place to stay and was... More
