Friendly staff. Room is the same as in the photos, clean, with clean shared bathroom on the first floor, and shared toilet on each floor. Location is accessible by train (Dōbutsuen-mae Station is in front of the hotel), and not too far away from the train line to the airport (Shin-imamiya station, by walk about 5-10 mins). Able to walk... More

The bathtub drain would flow onto the bathroom floor when draining the tub. The room we had smelled moldy and everything was worn out. Holes in flooring patched with duct tape. Horrible gas station type coffee in plastic cups and creamers. Not a nice place to stay at all.

This is a budget hotel, located very close to JR Shin-Imamiya Station (only 2 minutes walk). We found it to be safe, even though this area is known to be adjacent to Japan's biggest slum and homeless population. The hotel is 5 minutes via train to JR Namba Station, and then about a 10 minute walk to Dotonburi (for all... More

The hotel's location is great! Behind it is Spa World and just a few meters away is the Osaka Tower and Tennoji Zoo! Plus, the subway and Jr stations are nearby. There is also a Don Quijote a few meters away. The rooms are fair in size. We got the rooms with own bathroom. Though there is no bidet. They... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location of this hotel is good, close to dobutsuen mae station (osaka subway) and shin imamiya (jr). We booked for japanese style . Room is clean and big enough for two. Shared bath room and rest room also clean. This place has big bath look like onsen. It great after walking all day.
