This is a great location and not very expensive for Osaka. Right in the Dotomburi/America Mura area, several blocks walk from JR Namba station but you should blow off the JR system in Osaka and get a pay card deal with discount express from KIX instead.

Easy to find because it's next to a building with a big bowling pin on top! Convenience store and good restaurants nearby.

We got a small double room and it is very small. After the double bed there is hardly any floor space unless you crawl over the bed to the window alcove. Photos posted.

The bed is firm and the pillows had one side stuffing and one side buckwheat hills or something. So you can pick - but they're not fluffy.

Didn't have time to try the bath but photos look nice. Breakfast at the restaurant was delicious (though I'm still not sure if it was included or not, though we asked and were given tickets).

When we checked in there was an English speaking clerk at the desk but at checkout time the man had only a few words.

Almost all front desk staff doesn't speak english, there is one old guy who speak little english but was so arrogant. They are not friendly, which a front desk officer should be.

Room was small. They advertise wrong size of room.

It's location is quite okay. it's nearer to shinsaibashi station. and about 10 min walk to namba station.

I wont recommend this hotel if you

Pros:
Excellent location, in the cool neighbourhood of Amerika-mura and walking distance to Dotonbori
Walkable from Osaka Namba - 10-15 minutes shaded walk through the Ebisu-suji and Shinsaibashi-suji (no need to take subway again)
Clean rooms, bathrooms
Not noisy despite being on the highway
public bath is lovely
very affordable rates

Cons:
Room is a bit small, no space to put the suitcase. As I was traveling alone, I just had my suitcase on one side of the bed.
No breakfast
REception staff was at first not friendly, took a while to warm up and help with directions, recommendations, etc.

I had a great stay at this Dormy Inn and got a fantastic rate. This is a great location right in the centre of town. It's great if you like the nightlife around. Having the sento/baths was also a great way to relax after a long flight and then the trip down from Tokyo. Staff were very welcoming and for the price, it was a nice breakfast too. It's not the classiest hotel in the world for sure, but I thought this was fantastic value for money. My friend was also DJ'ing at club triangle, almost next door so the location was perfect. If you want a well priced place to stay in the heart of the action in Osaka, this is a great place to stay. There are plenty of places to get food around here, as well as clubs and some nice small bars. It's also pretty close to both Namba and Shinsaibashi so good for transport links.

Room Tip: Try to get a room facing away from the highway. Mine happened to be, but looking at the reviews, th...

This is a slightly older hotel in a great location. It is right in the heart of shinsaibashi which is a fun area to be in. The prices are very reasonable and the sento is pretty nice. My complaint is that the place is a little old and dark, and half the rooms face a noisy highway (there is a sound blocking panel, but that blocks the window as well). If you're not spending too much time in the room, this could be a good choice.
