“Fine hotel in Osaka”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

Nice hotel which is easy to find if you choose the right exit from the subway. Use exit 10 of the Nippombashi Station and go straight out for 6-8 minutes. The hotel is next to the second 7-eleven on your left hand.

The hotel is very well located - a short walk to the Dotombori, where you will find Osaka nighlife. Again, small but comfortable and clean rooms, good facilities, (if you are coming from Europe, you will be shocked free drinks @ reception. A very happy staying during the cherry blossom season.

Hotel Hillarys is a very good budget hotel located only 10 minutes walking from Namba-Nankai station (the JR Namba station is a little further away), which is why I chose it for convenient travel to/from the airport, Nara and Koya-san. There are lots of electronics shops in the area (called "Den Den Town") and there is a large SevenEleven downstairs, which is very convenient.

The first room I got was a smoking room which smelled repugnantly of stale smoke, but the second room didn't smell bad at all although it was also a smoking room. The room was on the small side as expected, but well equipped, comfortable and clean. The bed was super comfortable! There was a large window which you could open and amenities like a tea set, free Internet through a LAN cable, bathroom kit and slippers. The bathroom was a typical very small fitted Japanese bathroom with a cool high-tech toilet and a water faucet which supplied both the wash basin and the shower/bathtub.

The service was very friendly and professional, for example they had my suitcase (which I had forwarded from Kyoto) already waiting for me in my room. The breakfast buffet at the downstairs café was a large choice of yummy Japanese dishes. I didn't really see any Western breakfast like toast or cereals, but if you like Japanese breakfast with Miso soup, rice, etc. you will definitely enjoy the large variety of delicious dishes.

Stayed in HIllary hotel again over cherry blossome season. Another happy stay. The standard of the room and facilities have not changed. Even the same receptionists since the last stay.
So yes......i will still recommend it.
Tips: Japanese breakfast offered in the restaurant on ground floor. 500yen is good value. For budget meal.....there is a little shop near the hotel selling cheap bento from 300yen. Out of hotel, turn right and walked down the street. Immediately after Takashimaya (department store with coffee shop) turn into street. You will see a shop across the road with tables set up outside and heaps of bento box. Cheapest bento i have seen in Osaka. Think they are wholesale supplier of bento.
Happy stay !

Room Tip: I got room 84 which was told a good room. Its a twin bedded but with a sofa which i suspect convert...

We stayed in the hotel for 7 nights in early April. It was our first trip to japan but we were with seasoned japanese travelers so felt in good hands, Despite reports that Japanese hotel rooms were small we found this room to be of a good comfortable size, not huge but certainly bigger than I was expecting. We opted for a twin room as these tend to be bigger and we got a room on the 8th floor. The room itself was well kitted out with everything we needed and if you've not been to Japan before.....the toilets are something to behold....fully electric with heated seats......I don't know how I'm going to cope at home...
Free Internet in the room was wired but we had a wifi hub to plug in so that was good...free wifi was provided in the lobby. As well as free coffee and juice bar.

The staff were very helpful and all spoke good English.

If you join the hotel loyalty scheme you can get either a free breakfast or a bottle of water per day.
The breakfast is served in the cafe on the ground floor, it is a Japanese breakfast so standby for rice and fried food and fish....if you are adventurous you will enjoy it.....
One tip...if you are in a rush or have an eye for a good deal, if you have the breakfast as a takeaway you can take it up to the lobby or your room and eat it there, with free coffee and they give you ¥100 back....bargain...

The location of the hotel is very handy on the edge of the electronics area and a 5 min walk away from namba station....very handy for both transport around the area and for nit time eating and shopping along shin sai bashi street....
There is a 7 - 11 on the ground floor with everything you will need including ¥98 sake that will make you go blind...
This is a very good hotel in a great location......

I will be back..

Great value for money. The room was small (very small) as expected, but clean and comfortable. Free drinks available at the welcoming lobby, as well as coin operated washing machine and dryer, and two computers with free internet. The Japanese breakfast for 500 yens at the cafe on the ground floor is really good value for money too. We stayed at some very expensive five star hotels during our stay in Japan but Hotel Hillarys was a bargain given what you get for the price. Highly recommended if you are looking for a cheap but comfortable and well-appointed hotel in Osaka. Close to lively Namba and Dotombori, one of the main entertainment areas.
