I was actually hoping to get a room in a more central part of the city and admittedly choose the Juso location only because it was the only Toyoko Inn location still with rooms available for the evening I was in Osaka. In this case, I was quite pleased with the leftovers. The hotel is right next to a traditional shopping "arcade", which is the term the Japanese use for open-air/covered/lit shopping streets.
The ambiance of the traditional shopping street was extra nice at night - where the soft glow of the neon lights that lined the streets transported me to what seems like an earlier time in the city's history. Moreover, the experience felt uniquely immersive because it seemed void of tourists. Even though I haven't found Juso on any must-see lists for Osaka, I definitely recommend this location for those open to going a bit of the beaten tourist track.
As for the hotel itself, if you've stayed in one Toyoko Inn, you know exactly what to expect at this Juso location. It is impressive how a big chain like this is able to offer such a consistent product at all the various locations.
