The room is small, clean and functional, like many first class hotels in Japan. The Japanese breakfast is very good. The staffs are friendly, well qualified, helpful and English speaking. The hotel is near to the entrance of a subway station, but not really near to the subway station, since it is the far most entrance of the station.

This is awesome Bed is very comfortable. Bed sheet smells good Air conditioning works well Shower has good temperature, hot enough... More

No problems , no bad smells , a little mold in the corner of the bathtub but it appears to be under control. Two beds in a non-smoking room were waiting for us upon checking in. I would stay here again. It was a 2,500 yen taxi ride from the train station. Has a fridge and tv in the room... More

I had my 'reservations' when I made my reservation, but I neednt have worried, as this hotel was great. Its close to the metro which we mastered fairly quickly and just next to the the abundant grounds of Osaka Castle - a must see when you visit Osaka. The rooms are clean and sizeable by japanese standards and the staff... More

The name might be a little bit strange to me, but it was a very good location for two nights. Just around the corner from the Osaka Castle and still close to restaurants. The bathroom and the room where not that small for Japan. Very good standard and clean. Can strongly recommend this place!

The hotel is well located and the staff is very accommodating. The only down side for this hotel for us was that it was off the subway rather than the JR line. The room is ok sized and has everything you need for an easy stay. They were able to hold our bags for us before check-in, which made the... More

We had a pleasant stay at this hotel. It is located at 3 minutes walk from the station. Rooms are big and comfortable. Vending machines and Reception available 24h. Cleaning is not 100% perfect, but it is surely not bad (you are still in Japan) They lack a little with English but their efforts to help you fill the gap.... More

My wife and I stayed here for two nights in January. This hotel caters mostly to Japanese business travelers, but it does a very good job of catering to Western tourists too. The hotel is only a half block from a subway station and a 10 minute walk to Osaka Castle. There are 6 convenience stores and some ATM’s within... More

My wife and I stayed here briefly while passing through Osaka. Room was clean, comfortable, and well-outfitted. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was much better than others we endured in the region. All in all, the Lutheran is an excellent value. We would stay again.
