“Ideal hotel to explore Dotonbori neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

I stayed here for 2 nights, which is located on the Soemon-cho block, which extends from the east to the west of Dotonbori river. It is only a few minutes walk from Nanba station and Dotonbori neighborhood, which is the main touristic attraction in Osaka. There are several nice restaurants nearby, where you can try the local Osaka dishes including the takoyaki and okonomiyaki dishes. I found the room to be spacious with decent amenities, but there's no Wi-Fi connection in the rooms, so you'll have to use LAN connection in the room.

Stayed in this property for 3 times I had been to Osaka. It is just 1 minute from major shopping area. The design is modern. Room is bright and stylish. This hotel is just adjacent to the 24-hour 5-storey grocery store (or department store maybe) which is very convenient to grab a drink or any daily used products.

If you're getting here from the Shinkansen or the airport, it is a bit of a walk from the train station, or bus station if you've caught this from the airport, so I'd recommend a cab to get to the hotel if you have a lot of luggage, otherwise grab a map and the walk isn't too bad.

As for location, it really can't get much better! It's smack in the middle of the Dontonburi district which means all kinds of food, shopping and the famous running man light is on your doorstep. There is also the Namba station only a moment away which can get you to wherever you need around Osaka, or a day trip to any of the other locations close by - Hiroshima, Kyoto, etc.

The downside here is that they don't have wi-fi in the hotel, only 2 computers in the lobby and one of them was out of order for half of our stay, so made planning your days quite tricky, especially given the staff in the hotel weren't very helpful in providing suggestions on what to do.

I'd also skip the breakfast here as we'll, it really was quite awful and there are plenty of other options in close proximity.

Room Tip: Even though it's in a very busy district, we had a room at the front of the hotel and the noise...

Really easy to get to take exit 14 from Namba station the walk is all under ground to the exit ( yep you have to walk up stairs but not too many ) walk straight ahead over a bridge - the Cross Hotel is on the corner turn right and keep walking until you see "gold member" is next door.... that was the easiest way for first timers once you get use to the location there is quicker routes. Rooms big and modern for Japan, staff really helpful we borrowed an adaptor and they gave us directions to Bic Camera to buy our own as I couldn't find 3 prongs one Australia ($6). Really quick LAN - we took a longer cable with us to make it easier. Couldn't fault this place - I read this was in a red light area- we were there on the weekend and heard / saw nothing.

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 !!
