“Good value as they do three person rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2011

We stayed here on a weekend in October. I was looking for a hotel that did rooms for three people (parents and teenage son) within easy traveling distacne to USJ and the Acquarium. We arrived at Shin-Osaka and it was easy to get to Kirobashi station from there (change at Osaka station). I'd say no more than 10 mins to train station - previous reviewer must be a slow walker or got lost - you just cross the bridge across the river by walkway and it is there - easy, even with a suitcase. There are many places to eat round the station and failing that just outside the hotel is a macdonals, Subway and Italian restaurant. Kirobashi to Universal studios is easy and staff will give you directions and sell you an all day subway ticket. Sam,e for the Acquarium - we bought our entry ticket and travel ticket at the hotel. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was 1,700Y extra - expensive but full range of European/Japanese food on offer to cater for everyone. Reception staff spoke English. There are two computers in the lobby - 100yen for ten mins if you quickly want to check e mail, or you can hire a laptop for 1000Y for 24 hours. We were on the 21st floor and had good views across the city. We stay here again as three bed rooms where they charge for the room and not per person make it good value.

This Hotel was GREAT! The rooms were kind of small for my husband, myself, and our two daughters (ages 4yrs & 10yrs.) We went to Osaka mainly to go to Universal Studios Osaka so this Hotel was recommended. Its about 44 minutes via train from Kansai Airport to Kyobashi Station. To access the hotel by train take the JR Limited Express "HARUKA" to JR Tennnoji Stn.(approx. 31min.), then transfer to JR Osaka Kanjyo Line (approx.13min.) to Kyobashi Station..Kyobashi Station and Hotel Monterey are practically connected so its a 3 minute walk from the exit of the station to the entrance of the hotel. Its about a 19 MIN. TRAIN RIDE FROM kYOBASHI STATION to UNIVERSAL STUDIOS. KYOBASHI STATION to NISHIKUJO STATION (JR Osaka Loop Line Inner Loop)(15 min.) then transfer at NISHIKUJO STATION to UNIVERSAL CITY (JR Yumesaki Line)(5 min.)...Breakfast was pretty good at their buffet and they have a McDonald's a few minutes walking distance from the hotel!!!

Hotel is about 10-15 minute walk in any direction to trains, including a slightly sketchy walk back from Kyobashi on a weekend night. Rooms were decently priced. Staff tried their hardest to help with English directions. Not many food options in the immediate vicinity.

Considerations:
-Airport is actually 90 mins from Kansai airport by train, despite what the hotel website says
-Hotel wanted to charge Y1680 per hour for late check-out. Only place I've heard about in the world doing that!

The hotel is located in Kyobashi, which is very close to Osaka castle, and has direct train connections to main areas of interest and major train stations for airport access. It is near the business district so is fairly quiet in the evening, but doesn't have much choice for eating.

However, we had a really large room (particularly for Japanese standards) and large bathroom which was very clean, and we had a great view of the city from our room on the 21st floor.

Main criticism is that there are extra charges for internet access and use of their spa, even for hotel guests. Breakfast can be ordered at extra charge as well. They did not have a laundromat which was rather inconvenient as we had a long trip in Japan, and this is a very standard amenity in Japanese hotels so was particularly disappointed.

Very close to the train station and it is easy to get to major attractions from the hotel. Great staff that speaks English well.

This hotel offered a good price at a reasonable rating in a pretty quiet area of Osaka. The only virtue of the location is the 15 min walk to the minor castle and parklands of Osakajo. If you turn the wrong way you might end up in the red light distric, but the train link at Kyobashi is convenient. There is a multitude of cheap and reasonable eateries in an adjoining shopping complex, go there. Hotel os OK no complaints, just not very exciting and limited English speakers does not help. Value for money if you are just passing thru.

Good location - situated in the business park area of Osaka, nice surrounding, near Osaka Castle and easy access to majoy train lines around Kyobashi area.
Clean room, comfortable bed, friendly staff.....didnt have any issue during my 4 nights stay.
The only area for improvement would be to have wireless internet access in lobby or room.
