“Thank goodness all non smoking rooms!”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Check in and out is very smooth. It is a bit annoying that you can not go straight to the rooms from the ground floor but I guess it is good for security reasons. You need to change on the 2nd floor where the lobby is.

It is just about 10 minute walk from Osaka station if you follow the Yotsubashisuji Road which starts from Hilton Hotel in front of Osaka station. There are many restaurants, convenience stores and ramen shops nearby so you will never starve staying in this hotel. Most of the places are open til late. Some people had different opinions but the breakfast at JPY 1,000 is not so bad.

If my instinct is correct, the hotel had a concept of attracting women but in reality, it is attracting business men who don't smoke. Nishi-Umeda station is also nearby so you shouldn't have any trouble going to your destination. You can always walk to Osaka station.

This hotel is the only hotel I had no issue with the noise outside the hotel as well as noise from the hallway. I have slept well in all my stays here. And I like their PJs. This has become one of my favorite hotel on my business trips to Osaka considering the overall performance in terms of value.

Room Tip: Like other hotels the higher the better. Although, I get a higher floor every time when booking a mo...

Stayed 3 nights in early April 2013 and really enjoyed it. The staff were courteous and helpful and the location was excellent, being an easy 8 minute stroll from Osaka Railway Station. Our room was only $125 per night and thre is a subway arcade under the hotel that has dozens of cafes etc.

Stayed September 2012. Room was spacious, stylish and very clean. Good internet access. Excellent location. White design is a little overdone, but is very well maintained. Would certainly return. Excellent quality buffet breakfast.

This hotel is very white and seems to sport a honeymoon / wedding theme, without actually being that fancy. Check-in was smooth and location in Dojima entertainment district, close to Osaka station, is good. Plenty of dining options just outside.

Room very small, but boutique-style (more geared towards women, though). Internet OK, but with some weird firewall preventing most free phone-call tools which are a bit annoying when you are far away from your family.

Room Tip: Avoid "End rooms" (e.g. 11) if you can, as they seem smaller.

Great location which is about 10 minutes walk from Umeda JR station. The room is clean but relatively small. The hotel provided wire internet connection in the room without wi-fi service. It seems to be a Japanese oriented hotel, so not all the staff can speak / understand English. Nevertheless, the staff are all friendly and trying to be helpful.
