LOCATION: Part of Osaka Namba Nankai station complex (though as soon as you enter the hotel it is immediately very quiet and peaceful). Easy access to the subway (Midosuji line to Shin-Osaka for Shinkansen). Walking distance to Dotonbori etc.
FACILITIES: Swiss Advantage Queen room. Good sized room with exceptionally comfortable bed (best during my time in Japan), a wide pillow selection, and very nice provided silk pyjamas (not something that would usually interest me - but these were great)! The reception and concierge services were laudable, with English language proficiency being high. The drawbacks I would highlight would be the very limited number of TV channels for an international hotel chain, that the towels were a little hard (not very absorbent, and fairly small), and that access to the bathroom sink could be a little inconvenient as the sink was behind the bathroom door, and yet the door wouldn't fully fold back due to the bath.
I'd happily recommend this Swissotel purely based on the comfort of the beds alone. If you want to use Osaka as a base for exploring the surrounding area (day trips to Kyoto etc) then this is a great place to stay.
