“Great Location!!”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

Location, Location, Location!! Easy access to the city from the airport shuttle to the rail systems, there is a supermarket right outside the hotel that has sushi sashimi and Benton (ready meals). Walk a little ways and you can find everything, ramen, hotpot, japanese fast food stands etc. The hotel is clean and the internet is fast, the only complaint I have was the check in process it took almost 10 min for them to check one person in. Stamp, staple, stamp, staple etc.... sign here here and here. Copy of passport, I would think that in a "technically advanced society" they can do this more efficiently.

The staff is friendly and always had a smile, great luggage storage service (FREE), left luggage there for 5 days and returned to the hotel before departing Japan, I would definately stay here again.

The location is convenient and there is a complex contains supermarket, household products, bookstore and pharmacy right next store. The supermarket opens till midnight. Besides, there is bus direct from hotel to Kansai airport. Please check the bus schedule at the reception. The location is quiet. The hotel reception is on 22/F, the guest room is spacious except there is no facilities such as pool, gym or japanese style public bath.

Tip: try booking from expedia, from time to time they offer fantastic deal, I got it for 20% OFF other online deals.

Another tip: If you need to send your luggage to next city, do go to OCAT, they have a Taqbin service. One-day delivery at MUCH cheaper price compared to the hotel's Taqbin.

Arrived at the OCAT (Osaka bus terminal) and simply walked 5 min to the hotel. The lobby is on the 22nd floor (if remember correctly). Nice lobby with a chapel. It seems the use it as wedding venue, so you might catch a glimpse of Japanese brides during you stay.

Check-in was smooth. The receptionist offered to change our room, due to overbooking. After we agreed, he gave us breakfast coupons for our stay. Nice gesture.

The room was clean and of okay size. Enough for three of us. Amenities are good.

Breakfast was okay, although there was a wide selection, but I feel the food was quite bland.

Namba station is just down below the hotel, so it is really convenient. Supermarkets also below.

Check out was super smooth.

Overall really satisfied with this hotel.

We stayed in the Monterey Grasmere in April on arrival from Australia and were very pleased with our choice. The hotel is actually situated within the huge Namba station environment which we reached by the convenient direct rail link from the Kensai airport. The hotel is well-located for supermakets (one in the basement beneath the hotel), shopping (Takashimaya Department Store nearby), eating-out (Dotonbori and the attractive surrounding streets just five minutes walk. The room was compact, like most Japanese hotel rooms and the shower is over the bath (like most Japanese hotels). The price was around AUD100 a night off the internet. Highly recommended.

My wife, son and I stayed at the hotel for 5 days. The room was more than adequate in size with 3 single beds that were large singles. The bathroom was clean and well appointed.
Very quiet hotel.
It's well located next to the OCAT bus terminal and JR rail line.
Short walk to the main shopping and eating area.

Don't bother getting breakfast as we found many places to have breakfast outside for a fraction of the hotel prices.

Room Tip: Ask for a non smoking room.

The hotel was great to connect to OCAT limousine bus, room very clean, and subway right underneath, read some reviewer's complaints about the trouble to connect, but we stay there for 5 nights and travel to Kyoto via Kintetsu Train by transfering at the Yokoyabashi subway stations, only two stops from Namba, there was no fuss and we did not find it complicated at all. We also appreciate the supermarket right beneath the hotel and the nearby local restaurants, if you want to get nice Bento box, it is about 5 minutes walk to go to Takashiyama Dept Store, and we really enjoyed trying various salads, bento from there. All in all, we will surely stay again. The hotel staff speak English and was always quite helpful. Definitely recommend stay!!

Room Tip: I did not find any gym, or pool but this is not a five star hotel to have these sort of amenities...

everything was as good as expected or better...large spacious rooms, very clean and modern facility and very easy to move around Osaka from Namba station.

To and from the airport the OCAT is right next to the Hotel....
