My husband and I just recently stayed at this hotel, and we found it to be very pleasant. It is one street away from the Shinsaibashi covered promenade, shopping central, and only a few minutes away from the famous Glico billboard. It is around the corner from the Shibsaibashi subway stop (exit 7 as many previous reviewers have stated).
We can speak minimal Japanese, so we had no issues with the front desk, but can see how individuals with no Japanese speaking abilities may have some difficulty engaging in conversations with the front desk. However, they were always kind and helpful.
The rooms are small, yet this was to be expected in a city area of Japan. So if you want to stay in a spacious room---look elsewhere. This is a compact room with pretty much everything you need to get by--- a bed, a bathroom, a bathtub, a tv, and a internet cable for your laptop. Yes, and the internet is free if you bring your laptop. So I highly suggest you do so, if you want to stay connected.
The one thing I must mention about this place is that although it’s right in the middle of the city, I got the best sleep here. There was minimal to no noise from the outside, and I did not even hear much noise from fellow neighboring guests. It truly felt like we were the only ones there. The only reason why I know we weren’t is that we bumped into other hotel guests in the elevators.
Lastly, if you are flying into Kansai, I highly suggest you take the Limosuine Bus to Namba-OCAT station (approximately $10 per person), and then take a taxi from Namba-OCAT station to the hotel (approximately $7 for two individuals with luggage).
