What to say about the Swissotel! It is a fantastic hotel.
I arrived at the hotel just as I was getting VERY sick. The staff went out of their way to make an appointment with a doctor and arrange a taxi to take us there. Later that day, the woman who helped organise all of this (I wish I knew her name) came up to my room with a tray of fruit and a get well card. I absolutely adored Japan, and it may seem strange but this act of kindness was the most memorable part of my trip.
Given that I spent 8 nights (and days!) at the hotel, I got to see it quite well. The room was spacious, quiet, with beautiful views, a comfortable bed and lovely calming atmosphere. The quality of the amenities including the nespresso were appreciated. Service impeccable. Location superb - right by Namba station and the heart of Namba area. I didn't get to try the hotel's restaurants but there are some streets nearby with great atmosphere and food. I only saw these as I was starting to recover so it was an effort for me to get there, but my guess is that it was less than 5 minutes walk for 'healthy' people, so all very close by.
I LOVE Japan and the Japanese people, and I missed out on seeing Kyoto and Osaka, so this country is at the top of my list for my next trip. I will return to the Swissotel Nankai.
