our group of 14 people stayed in this hotel for 8 nights. we booked online. a few days before, we had to make some reservation adjustments, and they were very accommodating and helpful over the phone. we took the KATE airport limo bus from kansai airport to OCAT station, and from there, it was a 15-minute walk to the hotel.
room: the only downside was the space. it was quite a challenge to pack/unpack two big suitcases and 2 carry-ons in the tiny area without placing them on the bed. otherwise, it was ok. it had a fridge, a tv with dual language settings, a hair dryer, a coffee/tea set and a trouser press. the bathroom had a tub and the usual toiletries. thw whole room was very clean.
lobby: the reception people were so polite and quite proficient in english. they had english/japanese maps of the vicinity on hand. there were vending machines for drinks, a microwave, a hot/cold water dispenser and an ice machine. near the restrooms was a small laundry room for guest use; separate charge for washer and dryer. beside it was a tall uv closet with nightgowns for guests. the lobby also doubled as the breakfast room, with enough seating for about 20 people. breakfast fare included freshly baked bread, salad, sausages or eggs or spaghetti, coffee and tea.
location: the hotel was a 5-minute walk to the nearest station (sennichimae/yotsubashi), a stone's throw from family mart (convenience store), and about 10 minutes from maxvalu (24-hour supermarket). across the street was a branch of the tsurumaru restaurant chain, a great place for cheap but excellent food.
*if you're walking down motomachi, all you will see is a white and blue sign saying HOTEL next to some kanji characters. i printed the hotel name in japanese prior to our trip for reference. the bright blue sign on the roof is also reflected on the buildings around it, so it's hard to miss.
*leave your key with the reception staff if you want your room cleaned
