“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Our room was modern, clean and comfortable. Free wifi in the lobby and well located for shops, restaurants and nightlife. Easy walk to/from Namba or Shinsaibashi stations, or a cheap taxi fare. Great stay.

The hotel is in a great location!! If you want to go out and have a good night out this is the place to be!! It is very good value and most subways close at midnight so it's the place to be. Originally booked 3 nights but had to change to 1 nights stay they were very helpful and understanding.Lots of shopping and clubs surround it. Very easy walk from Namba station take exit 14, walk towards the big H&M store. We caught a cab from Osaka station to the hotel which isn't too pricey if you are too tired to walk around.

The room was very spacious and it looks exactly like the photos. The bed and pillows were super comfy !!! The aircon was a DREAM !!

Staff were very lovely and helpful in helping with which station to go to if you wanted to see the Castle, Aquarium or going to the Airport.

We had the breakfast at the restaurant, nothing special but it was good enough to fill your belly.

Would definitely stay here again !!

I booked this hotel 2 months ago for a really affordable price (for 1 night).

It took awhile to find the hotel from the Namba subway station, partially because we had luggage and had to get out at an exit with an elevator, and also because I had no detailed map. Without luggage it probably would've taken 7-8 minutes. Located pretty centrally in Dotombori, near shops, restaurants and bars, As long as you don't mind all the neon cheesiness and people, it's the place to be. There were plenty of places to eat, but it seemed like a lot of places didn't have English menus and couldn't accommodate us (except for the ones where they actively tried to get people to go to their restaurants.

Checking in was easy. The hotel is very secure with key activated elevator. The room was spacious compared to typical Japanese hotels. It was very quiet. The bed was less firm than usual, which seemed more comfortable. Pillows and comforter were filled with down. PJs were provided, but it was more like a robe/sleep shirt. Bathroom was a decent size, with good shower pressure. They had complimentary water. We had Wifi access in the room from other servers, but Wifi through the hotel was available in the lobby. In room safe was available.

Since we weren't leaving Osaka until 9pm, they held our luggage for several hours while we went out sightseeing. Took a taxi ($560Yen) to Namba Nankai (Express $880 Yen, can use Suica card, or Rapit $1110? to get back to KIX).

Cons: no hotel in room Wifi, distance from Subway
Pros: Location, spacious room, cost

The rooms are pretty spacious and super convenient. And very clean. However we didn't have a good first impression because they mistaken our booking by giving us a room on smoking floor - which I specifically asked for non-smoking room when I booked my room via booking.com. Thank god I had my booking record with me. But instead of giving me the right room, the reception insisted us had requested smoking room, which we have to keep arguing that we didn't do that. Anyway they found us a non smoking room after.
Also, we were astounded when we requested for extended ONE hour of checkout time, their staff said to pay extra money!
Well, given the money we pay for this hotel is not a lot, guess we shouldn't expect a lot. But I will not return here for sure.

Tips: If you're coming from JR Osaka station, transfer to the red subway, the Midosuji line thats red. Go to namba station. From the kansai airport, get on the nankai line and get off at nankai namba. Namba is quite big and getting to one side to another takes a while. Point is, look for exit number 14. When you get off, you can easily follow a map you printed beforehand. Meaning turn left and walk through the covered shopping street. When it finishes, turn right after the big crab restaurant! It's not hard to find.

Hotel was clean and modern, had a tub, amenities and tea set.

There are lots of restaurants and shopping areas around. For example, The best ramen, ichiran, is a block away, along the river near don quihote. Have an early ramen breakfast round 9 or 10, noones gonna be around. After that lines get really long. The takoyaki shop beside was also yum.

For shabu or sukiyaki, just walk about 3 minutes in the direction of don quihote, and there is a restaurant Onyasai, great eat all you can for 2,600 ish at night. Ala carte also good. Anyway, food wont be a problem in the area.

This is supposed to be a three star hotel, but that rating should be upgraded! Spent three nights here after a cruise that ended at Kobe.
The facilities are excellent, though we did not sample their restaurant - simply because of the proximity of a huge variety of eating places in the area. This hotel is located in the heart of everything - close to metro stations, shopping and entertainment.It is also clean, rooms are spotless, and don't let your first impressions of the street get the better of you!
Would definitely recommend to any and all!

Recently stayed 5 nights there. The room was clean, tidy, spacious & comfortable.
The location is strategic-- center of the heart of everything: train stations, great restaurants, shopping complexes & etc.

WIFI is available at the lobby only, unless you purchase a Lan to WIFI router (~3500Yen) at big-camera nearby.

Definitely a good choice to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Enjoy the great rate by advanced booking.
