We considered this pleasant and well managed establishment our vacation home when we visited the Kansai area.
First, the hotel is conveniently located at Namba, an attractive commercial, tourism and transportation hub of Osaka. In addition to easy access of sightseeing spots in Osaka, many popular tourist destinations in Kyoto, Nara and Kobe are all a day's trip from this base.
Second, this beautiful facility is well cared for by the management and service team. Many guest rooms were recently renovated and equipped with improved accommodations. The guest room is spacious comparing to our experiences with some other hotels in Japan.
Third, we have enjoyed the genuine "customer first" service attitude from every service team member over multiple stays at the hotel. Before our recent visit, the reservation and customer relations staff helped resolve a reservation issue which was caused by the online reservation system. During our recent visit, we encountered a minor medical emergency around mid-night after our arrival. The senior Bell Captain and his staff contacted several local hospitals for us. They were able to find an emergency care facility with an English-speaking on-duty doctor. We were very pleased with a fortunate outcome about a totally unexpected event.
We look forward to visiting our home away from home. Swissotel Nankai Osaka, in coming years.
