“Very average hotel”
Reviewed October 18, 2008

We based ourselves at this hotel for a couple of days as we did day trips to Osaka, Kyoto and Nara. Paid about $80 a night plus 2Xbreakfast, which is relatively inexpensive for Japan. I would class this hotel 2.5 to 3 stars quality, which is about right for the price. Rooms are clean but everything feels dated. Staff are friendly, but I was a bit disappointed they don't provide plug adaptors for different plug heads. We didn't see any signs of prostitution, as mentioned in another review. Location wise, it's all right. The hotel is right at the exit of the subway, one station down from the Shin-Osaka JR station. I guess if you're looking to save some money, then this hotel is all right. Otherwise, consider paying more and stay south at Namba which is right where the famous Osaka night life is.

The hotel is very close to the subway and just one station away from the Shinkansen train station. Restaurants and shops are around. The rooms need a renovation urgently. Reception and service is okay but non-smoking rooms are rare. Try to get a room as far away from the highway-faced side as possible.

This hotel is not exactly in the main tourist area of Osaka, in fact it is more like what you would call one of the many red light districts in Osaka. It is very easy to get around with the subway station less than 1 minute walk away. The hotel reception is also great with most of them speaking good english. Breakfast is just average but it comes free so who cares?!

  • Liked — Very helpful reception
  • Disliked — Surrounded by brothels
