Tennoji Miyako Hotel
Ranked #37 of 351 Hotels / Ryokan in Osaka
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 30, 2013

If you're going to explore Osaka and the rest of Kansai area, Tennoji Miyako Hotel's location is hard to beat. Located just across the JR Tennoji Station, the hotel has connections also to Osaka's subway system down on its basement, so you don't even have to go out if the weather is cold (or hot).

The room size are generous with comfortable beds. We were booked at a smoking area (despite specifying in Agoda's site that we want to be in the non-smoking floor), but it didn't matter since the rooms were clean and free of odors. However, the hallways do have a lingering aroma of cigarette smoke. Toilets were immaculate and the Japanese-style toilets have English instructions on them, so it is very easy to use.

The hotel has its own food court (or at least in its own building) where you can have an affordable lunch. However, it opens at around 11AM, so you can't take breakfast there, if it isn't included in your booking. Still, there are a lot of choices in the number of shopping malls within the immediate area - MIO, Kintetsu, Abeno Q, Hoops, and within Tennoji Station. If all else fails, there are vendo machines and the Heart In Convenience store beside the hotel, near the JR office building.

Basing in Tennoji is a great option since the area is not as noisy as the busier Osaka districts and it is the nearest main terminal going to and from Kansai International Airport, which lessens your time lugging around heavy suitcases while avoiding the rushing Osaka workforce.

Nice hotel with generous sized rooms and good on site facilities. The main reason we booked this hotel was it's location. It's connected to the JR Tennoji train station and subway system so has direct access to the airport and city. It really doesn't get any more convenient, you don't even have to go outside!

The in-room internet is the fastest I've ever seen but requires you to plug the cable into your laptop. No in room wifi so no good for iPhones/iPads (unless you use your laptop as a hotspot).

Other than no in-room wifi, I really couldn't fault this hotel in any other way.

Room Tip: A room towards the back of the hotel would be better as you can hear the road noise from the rooms a...

The hotel is located just opposite to JR Tennoji Station. Shopping malls nearby & lots of local restaurants (operate at night) at the back site of hotel. The hotel room is big, nice & clean. Hotel staff is nice & friendly. This hotel do have a car-park next to hotel building. However, better to reserve the car-park while making hotel reservation & get the special parking rate from hotel which is much much cheaper

Take the train from the airport direct to Tennoji Station. Exit near platform 19 and turn left, walk straight for about 50metres and cross the pedestrian crossing, immediately turn right and cross the pedestrian crossing across the main road outside the station. You will see a small red sign above glass sliding doors 'tennoji hotel'. The bed is comfortable. The temperature inside was unbearable and we were unable to sleep from being too hot. I think they overcompesated as it was 3c outside. There was no temperature control in the room, the hotel controlled the entire floor. They suggested to open the window, which I did and kept open all night and the room was still very hot.
The breakfast was ok, they cook fresh eggs. Coffee was nice.
Great spot to walk around. We ate on levels 10 and 11 of Mio - a big shopping centre directly across the road. There are bars and karake places around the corner - turn left and left at the next road as you walk out the hotel. The Osaka loop line on platform 18 takes you to Osaka. I highly recommend the JR pass, it's awesome.
I would stay at this hotel again. Thank you Tennoji!

I chose this hotel based on it's location - just across the street from the Tennoji train station. The room was very clean, and spacious enough for a solo traveller. The bathroom was more than adequate, and the shampoo & conditioner made my hair silky soft! I also like that they were in large refillable bottles, rather than wasteful teeny ones.

I went to the bar one night, and the service was excellent, with little snacks, mineral water, and a lovely view, although it does come with a hefty "table charge", even though I was sitting at the bar. OK for groups or couples, but a little steep for one person enjoying a glass of champagne.

The staff were unfailingly polite, although I didn't have to test their English skills, as I am lucky enough to know enough basic Japanese to check in, ask for luggage to be stored etc. I will stay here again, based on the proximity to the train station, the efficient service, and the clean room. It's not a flash hotel, but very good for the price.

Placed right opposite the tennoji station, this hotel is perfect spot for train to/from airport. Therefore also convenient to subway to get around Osaka. Very comfortable, been here in summer and winter. Rooms away from station are quieter.

I usually stay in a hotel in Shinsaibashi when I am in Osaka. This time that hotel was booked so my colleagues arranged for me to stau at the Tennoji Miyako. At first when I arrived, I admit I was disappointed. The location looked grim, and the hotel seemed to lack any identiy as it was in a building with restaurants and other outlets. When I entered my room I was also disappointed as the view overlooked Tennoji train station which was an ugly view and very noisy. I stayed there 4 nights. By the end of the stay I had however changed my opinon and sw the hotel in a more positive light. First, the breakfast each day was excellent. Lots to eat, good variety and very tasty. Second, the hotel being directly opposite a train station is very handy. It also allowed me to take the train to Kansai airport which took 40 mins at 1,600 yen, rather than a taxi for an hour journey at 16,000 yen. The room was also OK as it was cleaned well and I received a courtesy newpaper every day. The staff were very, very helpful, and very polite and efficient. So, overall, my initial disappointment turned into a satisfied experience. Meaning, that I would recommend this place as a business hotel.

Room Tip: Make use of Tennoji train station rather than take taxis. However, try to get a room which does not...
