“Fantastic location and fabulous service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here two nights and due to overbooking, we were offered a complimentary upgrade to a two twin bed, nonsmoking suite on the top floor. The view was absolutely incredible, the room incredibly comfortable and nicely appointed, and the service impeccable (had no trouble as an English speaker with almost no Japanese language skills). We were able to leave our baggage at the front desk when we arrived several hours before check-in, and they also held our baggage after we checked out since our flight was several hours away.

The hotel is incredibly well-located, right next to JR Namba Station for easy daytrips to Kyoto, Nara, Kobe, and Himeji; it's on top of a grocery store, and it's a quick and easy walk from the hotel to Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi.

We stayed in this hotel 6 of the 7 nights in Osaka and it was way better than the hotel we transferred to on our last night. It was quite a walk from the Nankai Namba Station but once we got acquainted with the subways and the stations, it became much easier. I hope the hotel considers putting a shuttle service from the Nankai station exit.

From JR Namba though, the place was a breeze to find, with its own entrance from the Subway exit. This was very convenient coming from Universal City where JR was the only option.

Room size was bigger than average which was the biggest factor for us choosing this place.

Two thumbs up and will definitely come back.

Had my second stay in Hotel Monterey Grasmere in 6 months.
Great place to stay for travelers who want to stay around Namba area.
About 10mins walk to the central of dotonburi area.

Travelers with JR pass holders traveling to Nara, Wakayama and KIX airport is easy with a change of train at Tennoji Station.

Probably the only pain is locating the hotel lobby for the first time.

We stayed at the hotel our entire trip which was 5D6N. The hotel room is small but just nice for two of us and our 5yrs old except that we had to close our luggage after every we took something from it because if we left it spread out on the floor there wont be enough walking space. The only space big enough for our two cargo luggage is right in front of the room door next to the washroom. The toilet is really clean and is filled with amenities, shampoo and soap, refilled on a daily basis. There's a small fridge and a unit air purifier. Service staff are polite and they understand English.

Location wise, it is A++ convenient. Everything is just about less than 10 minutes walk away - mall, supermarket, subway station (where there are shopping and loads of eatery outlets) and a McDonalds that opens till late at night.

The best of all with this hotel is that the building adjoins the OCAT building where there are bus departures for the airport on a daily basis at scheduled time. The downside however, it can be a bit difficult maneuvering through escalators with huge luggage and finding the way to the terminal area as it is located far on one end of the building. While there are lifts, not all of it brings you to the terminal floor which is located at the basement.

Overall I'd recommend this place for everything is has to offer - service, room, location, comfort value for money and the list goes on!

Great location next to bus station where you can get express bus to kix airport. This is really usefula private transfers are very expensive. Great views over city from restaurant and a short walk to some awesome local cafes.
Rooms are small but functional. Everything you may need in the firm of toilets is provided. Hotel even provides pajamas for your use!
Friendly and helpful staff .

I was stayed in the hotel for just 2 nights but it gave me a very good impression of the hotel.

The location is much better than I thought, 10 mins walk to the main shopping areas, many shops around including restaurants and super markets.

I will absolutely go back to this hotel next time in Osaka. I hope I could have a higher floor room next time and the view must be great!!!

Location - Right beside OCAT. Those with early departure to airport (e.g. 5am - 6am) will be a great place to stay. Other parts of town is also assessible via subway below the hotel and walking distance to the main shopping area - Shinsaibaishi, Dotombori etc. A supermarket below the hotel is great to purchase food or other amenities.

Room - is small. Not much room for maneuvre after putting in the luagage on the floor.
