일본어, 영어 못알아듣는 직원들. 영어못하는 척하는 직원때문에 호텔 로비서 가방을 탈탈 뒤져야 했습니다. 지나가는 일본인들 웃고. 외국인에대한 차별 및 괴롭힘이 있다고 느꼈습니다.(이 호텔만이 아닙니다. 오사카여행 혼자가실분들은 재고해보시길.) 호텔 룸안에 놔두었던 우산, 머리끈이 없어지기도 하고요. 비오면 우산은 일본인한테만 빌려줍니다. I FELT Racial discrimination against foreign visitors. Staff keep pretending that they don't understand any English at all. which is why I... More

just next to Nagahoribashi station which is very convenient. opposite hotel have a 24hrs Japanese Restaurant which is nice and cheap. Few step to reach the Crysta Nagahori. It's said to be Osaka's longest underground shopping street. within 10-15mins reach Shinsaibashi shopping street suggest to take twin room instead of Semi Double Room which the semi room very small

I booked a room for two people for five nights but my friend could not come last minute, so I requested to change to a single room. Despite the staff had limited English, I got my request and the room is more spacious than I expected as a solo room. The room is very clean as well but you can... More

This hotel is a bit dated but very conveniently located in the heart of Osaka CBD. The hotel is located next to Exit 4 of Nagahoribashi subway station and is one stop to Shinsaibashi and Nipponbashi stations, two stops to Namba station. The Crystal underground shopping mall links the hotel to the famous Shinsaibashi shopping streets. The popular Kuromon Market... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, the hotel was a little out of date but it was clean and comfortable. Great location to all transport, heaps and heaps of restaurants and shops. Walking distance to neon district and the best shopping strips. Staff were great.

The location is simply superb! Directly next to the Nagahoribashi Underground. There's also 2 Japanese restaurants right opposite which serve from breakfast to dinner with yummy hot food and good pricing. The front desk staff is always smiling and attentive. One of the girls even went out in the cold winter under drizzling rain to help us get two taxis... More

Stayed 3 nights here last year in March with a friend. Was given a big room (usually very small in Japan) with twin beds. The hotel is right next to a tube station and within easy walking distance to shops and eateries in Shinsaibashi. It was really convenient to get to different places in Osaka from the Ark. The only... More

Stay in n this hotel and you will never regret it, price wis and love cation all good. The he only the down side is the check in and check out policy which is common is Japan you have to check out at 10:00 am and check outs at 3:00 pm which is hustle, so get us d to it

One of the cheaper hotels I booked in Japan. Location is superb, close to everything: shops, restaurants, stations, etc. If location and price are your top priorities, this won’t disappoint. Not a very fussy guest here, but there are a few things I didn’t love about the place: First of all you have to leave the key, an actual key,... More

I spent 6 nights at this hotel, and I loved the location. There was a mini mart across the street, and I was able to get great food there to eat in my room for breakfast and dinner most nights. Tea was provided, but not coffee so I had to buy a small bottle at the mini mart. The room... More
