“Perfect night sleep”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Knowing that we would arrive at Kansai airport after 10PM, we decided to spend the night at the closest hotel to the airport before starting our tour of Japan the next day. We landed at Terminal 2, so we catched the free shuttle bus that takes you both to this hotel and Terminal 1 (Terminal 1 is just in front of the hotel).
The first impression of the place is that this was a luxury hotel because the lobby is really huge. In addition to that, the Japanese staff was extremely polite, so we felt initially as if we were in Buckingham Palace. The check-in process was done then quickly and efficiently thanks also to the fact that they speak sufficient English. By the way, there are some computers for guests in the lobby but they cost 300 Yen for 15 minutes.
The room we got was comfortable, elegant, very clean and its size was ok considering the Japanese standards (picture attached). Beds were not so high and mattresses were somehow hard. Nevertheless they were comfortable and we had a perfect sleep (each bed had also a hard and a soft pillow). This was also possible because it was very quiet and we didn't hear any planes at all.
Finally, we cannot mention the breakfast or any meals because we didn't eat in the hotel. But we did buy some Japanese food in the shop next door before taking the train in the morning to go to Kyoto (the train station lies between the hotel and Terminal 1).

Stayed one night in February 2014 before catching plane to Hong Kong. Hotel is 200 metres via walkway from Terminal 1 at Kansai, which is very handy for transfers.

Hotel itself is good for what it is. Room was average, although there was no tea or coffee provided, which was disappointing. Within the complex there are several restaurants - we had the Italian for dinner which was good food with ordinary service; and the buffet for breakfast - good food and 10% off with hotel voucher.

If you're after convenience to airport, this is the hotel to choose.

We decided to stay for the night in time for our morning flight to Sapporo. Connected to the Kansai Airport, and subway station, this Hotel is conveniently located within the Aeroplaza Mall where food joints and shops can be enjoyed. There is even a Lawson C Store beside the hotel entrance. Staff were courteous and attentive, although some front desk staff have limited English.

Most of all, WIFI is free and can be accessed in the room, also has a foot massage. Great soundproofing too since we cant hear any airplane noises at all. Buffet breakfast was very good.

However, room size was really small typical of Japan hotels, and our window view was just the airport tarmac. Smoke smell inside the room was persistent. And we were charged with a long distance call rate to a local number.

Clean, friendly staff and obviously a perfect location being attached to the airport if you need to stay overnight in preparation for an early flight, but just don't expect some glorious boutique experience as it is, at the end of the day, just a hotel near an airport!

Stayed overnight on two different occasions in January. Everything was really fine here, nothing to complain about at all. Comfortable rooms, good service, and very reasonable prices. I recommend this place.

We stayed there for one night before we caught the early with Peach airline. The rooms were a let down although they were clean. For the price we paid (a discount rate for Peach passengers), we still though it's not worth the money.
