“Great value in central Osaka”
Reviewed October 26, 2008

The Umeda OS Hotel is right in the middle of Umeda, the major city center of Osaka. The hotel is fairly new, and is steps away from the Higashi-Umeda subway station. It's also a five minute walk from the Umeda subway, Hankyu, and Hanshin stations, and JR Osaka station.

The staff is courteous and unobtrusive. Check-in was effortless, and the rooms are big enough by local standards, although it certainly wouldn't be by Western standards. Everything was very clean, and there's wired internet access in the rooms (no wireless though). There are drink vending machines on each floor, and snack and sake machines on the 4th floor.

The only downsides I can think of were that you have to turn in your room key when you leave the hotel, which isn't that uncommon in Japan. However, since they're a larger hotel, they may not know you by face, and they don't really verify your identity when you return, so it's not hard to end up with someone else's key. I'd recommend taking your valuables with you when you leave. Also, the doors aren't particularly noise-proof, so we were woken up on a couple of occasions by people talking loudly in the hall.

The Umeda area has tons of food and entertainment options. There's a pedestrian arcade directly behind the hotel with all sorts of restaurants and pachinko parlors, as well as the occasional gentleman's club and love hotel, so this may not be the best place to bring the kids. But for young adults and couples, there's plenty of things to check out and explore.

All in all, it's a great value in the middle of Osaka, with easy access to all parts of Kansai Japan, and plenty of food and entertainment options.
