“Affordable Hotel for 3 adults”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Actually this hotel was much better than I was expecting. A small room but the size is actually large by Japanese standards. A clean hotel with a pretty decent continental breakfast. The location is pretty far away from Namba station. I would recommend just taking a taxi to the hotel from Namba if you are a family like us.

I requested a non-smoking room and was given a smoking. Couldn't sleep due to the thick smell of smoke and had to sleep with the windows open which wasn't actually allowed. Breakfast is ok. Location is pretty bad.

I stayed in a double room in Aug 2010. It's quite far away from shopping district.
Rooms are okay but not expect too much! We have fresh bakery, egg and free drinks (juice, green tea, milk...) for breakfast. You can access internet with two computers provided and free wifi at the common area.
I and my friends did enjoy the time we chat and have supper together at the common area every night. :)

The hotel staff is incredibly friendly, helpful, open minded and kind. Unlike some Japanese family owned accommodation, this hotel never infringes your privacy. Easy going. You will feel at home straight after the arrival. Easy access to the city centre and virtually every key sightseeing spot. Yet, it is calm and peaceful, where you will forget that you are actually in the city. Park and riverside will give you a fresh and relaxing spot. Although the hotel itself does not have fitness, spa, coin laundry, restraint, etc, it should be no problem as there are dozens of the affordable restraint of all kind and coin laundry is in walking distance. You will find the breakfast amazing – rare place where you can enjoy non-Japanese style normal bread including whole meal ones. I stayed at the hotel for about two weeks and would like to stay longer. Absolutely recommended!

This is quite a good place to stay. It is fairly quiet even though it is in the middle of the city. The rooms are clean and tidy and the people are very nice. Good value for money.

The hotel is quite good in terms of:

price - we found it to be reasonable

cleanliness - yes, it was quite clean. Rooms were cleaned everyday. Airconditioning (heater) needed a bit of cleaning but it was fine nonetheless. Bathrooms were clean and towels replaced regularly. bathrooms come with a mini bath tub.

breakfast - although they served the same continental breakfast everyday, we found it to be quite convenient to be eating downstairs. and considering Japan is not a cheap place to have your regular pastries and drinks, the buffet breakfast was helpful to the budget.

sleep quality - since the location is away from the busy areas of osaka, you can sleep well without so much noise disturbance.

service - good service. staff can speak a considerable amount of necessary english.

The only drawback on this hotel is:

location - not too conveniently located.

Overall, even with a bit of a walk, we still found this hotel to be a good place to have quiet peaceful sleep after a full day's exploration of Osaka.

Firstly, I would like to say that all I usually need from hotel is clean bed and room, hot water and Internet access - these (together with price and location) are my main criteria for rating hotel value. I don't care if hotel has pool, room service, fancy rooms and lobby or superb view. I want to do some sight-seeing during day and use hotel just for undisturbed sleep and save storing for my stuff. Family Inn Fifty's meet all my main points, only drawback could be location and price.

We have been travelling through Japan for two weeks and staying in this hotel just for one night (because we have not been able to book any lodging in Kyoto for saturday night, April 10th 2010). We have tried to book via phone, but the price was 2.000 yens higher than online book with credit card (10% paid in advance, rest on place - also using credit card), therefore we used our favourite hostel booking site just one night before and it works.

Our room was good enough for given price (7.500yen/night) and consist of double bed, sofa (where could potentially sleep third person) and small bathroom. Our room wasn't brand new but it was well maintained and clean. Included breakfast was fine, freshly baked bakery stuff (and small cakes) were really yummy. Internet is available in the lobby (they have some computers and wifi). We managed to reach some wifi also in our room, but I believe it was some opened (unsecured) net outside of the hotel.

Hotel staff was nice and english speaking. They were able to store our baggage as we came about two hours before check-in.

Hotel is not located in superb place (no sights around), you have to weave your way through surrounding streets (or take a bus) to the closest subway station. But neighbouring is very quiet - no pachinko or train behind windows means that you will probably have untroubled sleep.

How to get there: From Osaka train station take bus 88 to Tosabori 2-chrome (or ask in police kiosk on bus terminal, which bus is going to Tempozan area).
