-Does not include breakfast
-Cannot walk to Umeda/Namba
-A little complicated to walk to initially.
-Very spacious single room.
By Japanese standards this is the most spacious single bed hotel room that I’ve been to in this country. There’s space to place a couple of suite cases and still move around. Bathrooms are standard Japanese style sized. Memory foam bed and pillows are very comfortable. There is a small fridge and a tv.
-Good surrounding transportation.
Once you figure out how to get to the hotel from the station then it’s a breeze. The subway is about a 3 minute walk and the JR Shin-Osaka station is about a 5 minute walk. The subway is on the midosuji line which will take you to Umeda and Namba (5 minutes and 20 minutes). The JR Shin-Osaka provides Shinkansen access to Kyoto (15 minutes) and Kobe and Haruka access to Kansai Airport (60minutes).
-Fast Free Wifi
-Cheap and very clean hotel
-Staff is friendly and understands basic english.
Hotel is in a very very quiet area far away from shopping and nightlife. Umeda is about a 5 minute subway ride and Namba is about 20. Though both are very easy to reach you cannot walk there. It is a very safe area though but it is surrounded by office buildings. It is in a good spot if you have a rail pass and want to travel to Kyoto frequently. The shinkansen ride to Kyoto Station is less than 15 minutes by Hikari or Kodama which comes 2-3 times an hour. Local trains to Kyoto will take about 45 minutes and the express train will take 30.
To get to from ShinOsaka, exit from the station at the bottom floor parking lot side where all the taxis are. This would be the central exit, and is the same floor as the Mc Donald and subway entrance stalls are. There is only one exit that takes you to the ground floor. You should be able to see the hotel from the skyline. Just cut straight across the parking lot and go under the overpass. The hotel is on the block after the overpass.
-You can store your luggage if you arrive before the 2pm check in time.
