This hotel is situated very near the ShinOsaka station. Only about 5 minutes (or less) walking distance from the main gate. ShinOsaka station is a very good pivoting point to explore Kyoto and Osaka area. Osaka station is only 5 minute by train, while Kyoto is only 15 minutes away by shinkansen. This is definitely a good option for us who used JR passes. And, we realized that we could have just stayed in ShinOsaka too if we would explore up to Hiroshima, since it is only 1.5 hours away by shinkansen; but we didn't. The station itself has lots of food stalls and some convenience stores. It's easy to find food.
We got a good offer by staying 2 nights in this hotel. The rate was only around Y5500 per night for a room for 2 persons. This was the cheapest among the hotels that we stayed in Japan. Yet, for this price, it really worth the money.
The room that we stayed has a semi-double bed , TV, radio, clock, table, chair, mirror, refrigerator, electric water kettle, air-cond, free wired internet (with cable provided) and attached bathroom. The room size is quite small and packed for 2 ppl. The bathroom size is also small, just fine for asian size, but not sure for western size people :D However, among the hotels that we stayed in Japan has small size bathroom. The toiletries were provided: soap, shampoo, toothbrush, razor, towels, yukatta, and slippers. They did housekeeping everyday. Everything in the room was clean and neat. One minus thing was no cupboard was provided. It was only hooks with some hangers.
The service was good. We were given complementary drinks upon check in, to be redeem in their in-house bar. We could store our luggage in the reception before check in (we arrived before their check in time) and upon check out, for free. The reception is in the second story of the building, that has 1 escalator. It's normally up-riding. Upon check out, the receptionist switched the escalator direction to down riding for us. Very helpful for us to bring our luggage.
I would recommend this hotel for those who would spend most of the time exploring the area around Osaka and Kyoto.
