Toyoko Inn Osaka Semba Higashi
Ranked #246 of 339 Hotels / Ryokan in Osaka
Reviewed December 17, 2010

Easy to get to by subway, although one has to walk a long flight of stairs up from and down to the subway. The hotel is right at the subway station, but it is quite demanding for elderly to make the hike because there is no elevator.

Hotel is clean and the room is larger than the one we stayed in Toyoko Inn in Ikebukuro. it is also a relatively new hotel, I think.

with regards to the location, the hotel is located near the train station, and you would only need to walk down a straight road to reach it. Its located in a fairly quiet place, but its near NHK, Osaka Castle and History museum. The price is affordable, and the hotel has all the facilities my friend and I needed. It came with a bathroom, and there are added surprises like a trouser presser (since its a biz hotel), humidifier, fridge, cupboard, cups and etc. The hotel staff are very helpful as well.

I booked this hotel through their website. Their price was good. and hotel easy to reach by subway, get off at station Tanimachi 4 chome. (Exit #8). Once you get on street level keep walking straight.(so if you are facing a building, you would be going right). JThe hotel is about a 5 minute walk (or 3 intersections away) from the subway station. The entrance is tiny so you may miss it if your not careful. Look for the Toyoko inn 4&5 symbol. If arriving late, make sure you note this in your reservation so they keep your booking. You can only book the hotel 2 month in advance.

Location wise the area is quiet, not the city centre full of shops and at night it is quiet. But the hotel is good if you want something cheap and a good standard. Japan subways are alway full of people anyway, so it feels relatively safe. However, there is no night life here. It is geared more to businessmen and the area is quiet after 6pm.

I have stayed at 3 of these Toyoko Inns around Osaka and Kyoto and I have found them all to be great. They all have the same standard and the rooms are the same set up. Rooms are small, but this is what all hotels in Japan are like.

The great thing is, each room has free internet connection. They provide the LAN cable in each room and the internet is quite fast. They also have free computers and internet in the Lobby (this is also for all Toyoko inns around Japan). This lobby is tiny, no seats.

Toilets have bidets which are seats that can wash your bottom.

Toyoko inns also give guests free breakfast each morning. Rice balls, miso soup, tea/coffee. Breakfast is from 7am-9.30am. Breakfast is on the ground/lobby floor. with a seating area. The vending machine is also on the ground floor. They also have a filtered water dispenser here.

Check in is at 4pm. check out 10am. But you can always leave your bags if you arrive early or leave late.

You must pay once you check in, and the staff at the desks are all women, hotel manager is a woman. They are all friendly.

The hotel has a laundry machine, but the instructions are all in Japanese. They have a vending machine which is well priced compared to outside.
