We stayed at the Namba Oriental twice. Dates being 19 Nov, and 30 Nov - 02 Dec 2008.
On the 19th we were in a 23 Square metre room on the 9th (top) floor. It was small but very comfortable, clean and nicely furnished. The room had a fridge, dehumidfier, and air conditioner which, much to my delight, can be set to the temperature that the individual desires.
On the 30 Nov - 02 Dec we had a 32 Square metre room, also on the 9th floor. This larger room also had the above amenities. It looked down into the courtyard in the centre of the hotel.
You can open the french doors to the balcony but be aware that if you step on to it, you may trigger an emergency alarm via a sensor aimed along the railings of the balcony.
The hotel has a small but adequate coin Laundry.
We found staff to be polite and helpful. The hotel has good security.
Our rooms didn't really smell of smoke but you will definately notice it in the lift. This is because the basement level houses a pachinko parlor in which smoking is permited. When anyone uses the lift to the basement, clouds of cigarette smoke drift into the lift, hence the smell.
To get to the hote from Namba Station it may be easier to go up to street level by the Takashimaya Deprtment Store. There are two arcades opposite. Take the right hand arcade and walk about 100 metres, the main arcade the swings left and the Oriental is about 25 Metres on the right hand side. See photo.
If you like sushi, can recommend Kaiten Sushi ( the plates go round) close to hotel. Turn left out of the hotel and right into the next arcade. There are two close together, one on the left and the other a little bit further on the right.
