Hearton Hotel Shinsaibashi
Ranked #76 of 321 Hotels / Ryokan in Osaka
Reviewed March 18, 2012

Pros:
1. Its is very near the subway Shinsaibashi station exit number 7. If your carrying big luggage, from the subway turnstile exit, just go up the short escalator and then on the left hand side, there is an elevator to the street level
2. There's 3 small mini mart within the hotel area ( 300 meter radius )
3. Near the shinsaibashi street shopping. Just cross the big intersection and walk 100 meters and your there

COns :
1. small room ( we book the semi double )
2. Since the lobby is a smoking area, just imagine the smell upon exiting the elevator

Room Tip: if there's 2 people travelling, i strongly suggest not to get or book the Semi Double room. Its...

Firstly, it's Japan. Real estate is prime her and so a small room in the heart of a metro is a given. As it is Japan, cleanliness and ultra-tech toilet is also a given. Therefore the only other thing that matter is the location. It is perfect for those who would like to shop till you drop because right across the road is the heart of Osaka fashion, Shinsaibashi. You can just walk between nice shops until you cross a bridge and there's lots of food there. Definitely very much recommended. The breakfast is served in an edgy rest, Planet 3rd, and the porridge set there is excellent! Also a mall nearby called Daimaru which is a must see. Do buy the peaches if it's in season! After a certain time at night, they tend to sell it cheaper

Stayed here with friends during our Japan trip in early December.

The location is simply perfect. It is probably a 2 minute walk from Shinsaibashi station and tucked away in a quieter st off the busier main road. You are right in the middle of the action and shopping is a very, very short walk from the hotel. Convenience stores are located about 1 minute walk away as well. All in all, couldn't ask for more when it came to location.

However, what you paid for in location, they take away in the quality of the room. Rooms were tiny! Me and my friends compared the size of the bathroom to that of the toilets on an aeroplane! You couldn't bend over to touch your toes without hitting your head againsnt the wall. The room and furnishings were quite dated and there wasn't much space to keep luggage. - At least this meant that we were out exploring until late at night and would only come back to the hotel to sleep.

Not much to say about the staff, they weren't rude, but they weren't smiley or exceptional like the staff that we encountered staying at other hotels in Japan.

Overall, it is a good hotel if you don't like travelling much to reach shopping and if you don't mind staying in an average type room. It's quite good value for money, we got the rooms for pretty cheap. But I think we will pay that little bit extra for a nicer hotel next time we visit.

Stayed here for the first 3 nights in late November 2011 before heading for Kyoto during the peak autumn season. We had two non-smoking rooms booked via booking.com.

We find the rooms of average quality even though we were staying in the refurbished building. Located just opposite a main road to the middle portion of Shinsaibashi (the major and mega long shopping street), you can easily reach Shinsaibashi (shopping) and Dotonbori (food) in 5 minutes. We realised how near Heraton was to Shinsaibashi when we came back from Kyoto and had to stay in Toyoko Inn Shinsaibashi (read my review) as Hearton was fully occupied.

If you don't mind taking a very long walk from 'civilisation', Toyoko Inn Shinsaibashi (with breakfast) offers better room quality at a lower price. But for location to teh nearest shopping district, Hearton is unbeatable by many times!

Room Tip: Booked via booking.com but you are not guaranteed a non smoking room unlike Toyoko Inn's online...

The hotel has a great location and is about a 3-minute walk to the nearest subway station (Shinsaibashi) and an hour away from the Kansai airport. We had no trouble looking for the hotel but when you enter the hotel, all you smell is smoke. Hotel lobby is simple..free wifi and the staff were able to understand and speak simple english. Glad we asked to change to twin rooms instead of semi-double rooms as the latter are cramped and the bed was pathetic. Asked for connecting rooms but were given rooms side by side (adjacent--not connecting). No door connecting both rooms..i guess we had a different idea of what connecting meant. Twin room was slightly bigger but we still had trouble fitting 2 luggages in the room (one luggage had to go on the table top lest we had no walking space). Room was clean though, the bathroom was spotless too, which is a huge plus. Had some problems with the heat in the room..no air conditioner. It got stuffy at times..we werent able to open the windows either. Overall, average stay..might want to try out some other hotels instead.

Room Tip: Avoid semi double room if you are travelling as a couple..it's too cramped

Stayed for 3 nights recently with family on vacation. Location was very convenient for shopping and near subway station for connection to other places. Was quite difficult to locate as roadsigns were in Japanese and hotel signage was very discreet. Room and bath was typically Japanese size, cramped, with not much space for luggage and moving around. Bed was extremely small even for 2 Asian size adults. Service was basic but efficient. Meals at hotel was quite pricey so advise is to go to restaurants nearby for breakfast and meals.

The Hotel is conveniently located near the main train station and the shopping areas. The room is small but comparable to other Japanese business hotels. There is no wifi except in the lobby area, but you can access the internet via cable. Both dinner and breakfast at the hotel were good and the staff courteous.
