“Very Satisfied!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Throughout 6 nights at Hotel Mikado, I felt so warm and satisfied with every aspect of the hotel.

I had never seen such nice and kind staff like this hotel before. I also had several enjoyable conversations with other backpackers in the main dining room. Even though there are only three bathroom, I didn't spend much time waiting for taking a shower.

The location is another advantage. Just 2-minute to the subway station with 24-hour Familymart along its way.

If I have another chance in Osaka, I'll definitely stay with Hotel Mikado again.

This was the first place I ever stayed while in Japan and I have tons of good things to say about it!
The staff is all super friendly and helpful and if you need anything, they are willing to do what they can for you.
It's awesome to be able to chill in the lobby and meet new people every night. I met a lot of cool people here, one I can even call a friend now.
The noise level can get quite high, but I'm such an easy going person that maybe it didn't seem to bother me too much. The other strange part was the shared toilets, but I kind of got used to it. At first the shower situation seemed weird, but I had no problems getting into an empty shower no matter when I went down there.
I will definitely stay here again when visiting Osaka!

I received great help from the staffs. There are many staffs here, all very friendly and helpful.
Without them, I can not enjoy my holiday so much. They make my day.
Secondly, the location is great.
Thirdly ,the room rate very cheap, what they provided already exceeded what I paid.

For a budget hotel that only costs around US$20 a night (yes! no typo!), this place really goes beyond your expectation.

First of all, for that price, you get your own private single room with TV, fridge and a small table with mirror. I stayed in a Japanese style room, it didn't feel cramped at all!

The toilet and shower room are shared, but they are very clean. Toilets are located on each floor and the shower rooms on the ground floor.

There's a pantry on the ground floor, with all the basic cooking utensils available. At the sitting room area, there are many mangas for those of you who read Japanese.

The best thing I like about this hotel is the free bike rental. The bikes are quite old but they're free, so who cares! Thanks to the free bike, I saved a lot on transport for my day trip in Osaka. For those who need to travel to the airport, there are also discounted train tickets for sale.

This hotel is located in a relatively shabbier area of Osaka, but it felt pretty safe to walk around. The neighbourhood are mainly inhabited by old people so the prices are relatively cheaper than Namba or Umeda.

This is really quite a heaven for budget travellers and I'd recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Girls should request for a room on the ladies' floor- it just feels safer to be around fellow la...

We stayed at the Business Hotel Mikado for one night before heading to Kyoto-shi. The hotel is offering a number of free rentals I'm sure backpackers would enjoy - free use of bicycle, free use of computer, minimum rental for laundry and dryer.

Also take note of the schedule for using the shower room, which is located on the ground floor. The hotel has separate shower schedules for male and female guests. Toilets, meanwhile, are available in every floor.

Business Hotel Mikado is near Dobutsuenmae Station and a few minutes away from Tennoji Park.

The hotel is very closed to subway train. Friendly staff. One or two spoke good English, but all were helpful. Room is small for single but it has standard amenities. Shared toilets in every floor, shared showers on the ground floor. Free wifi, access to PC, free bike. Laundry n dryer for ¥100/each. Within walking distance, there is a local market with good n cheap eateries and many convenient stores.

Room Tip: For women traveler, ask for room on the 8th floor (women only).
