    Very good

    Location is near shopping streets. It is connected by three major railway lines all stopping at Namba station. These lines are connected by underground Namba Walk link way. It is recommended to buy jr pass to use the jr Osaka loop railway line which has a stop at jr Namba station. There is a supermarket at jr Namba station which sells nice sushi and bread. Sushi there is so much cheaper and nicer compared to sushi in Tokyo.

    No international tv channel. Not so friendly for people not able to understand Japanese language.

    Good

    I chose this hotel because of its close proximity to Nankai Namba train station, just a 2 minutes walk away from the main entrance, as we needed to catch an early morning train to the Kansai airport on the next day. If you are reaching Osaka by flight, you can catch the Nankai train to go to Namba train station directly from the airport, which is very convenient. From the hotel, you can easily explore Dotonburi and Shinsaibashi shopping district which are just a few minutes away by walking. Other than its location, the hotel and rooms are generally clean and comfortable with complete room and ensuite bathroom amenities, albeit lacking a in-room safety box. Price is reasonable, but I did stay in a nicer and much cheaper hotel in the middle of Dotonburi before. So you have to choose between distance from station and comfort of stay. Free coffee machine at lobby lounge is a plus. Free WiFi in rooms as well albeit not in the lobby.

    Surrounding area is quiet during night time. Lift can only be accessible by inserting your room card after 10:30PM. All doors would be closed after 3AM midnight. Room charge has to be settled before staying through cash machine next to the reception. All these made us feel weird but still acceptable. No drinking water provided in room.

    Superb

    Everything. I had requested for an iron and it was ready in my room upon my arrival. Very effecient and friendly staff. If you stay at this hote you can arrive at JR Namba station by train from the airport which will take 1 hour. then underground walk for about 15 minutes to Namba Station exit no. 5. It has an excalator. turn right and cross the road, walk for 2 minutes to find the hotel on the left.

    It has soft bed which was a bit of a problem as i like hard beds.

    Exceptional

    Location, room size is reasonable, house-keeping is excellent, toiletries are excellent (and even a bottle of odour deodoriser) , complimentary (good) coffee maker in the lobby. Good staff; but poor command of English.

    Check-in after 3 pm is late; a more customer-friendly time would be 12 pm.

    Great location, affordable, very friendly staff, free coffee at lobby (doesn't work from 7-10AM though), one of the best that we stayed in Tokyo.

    Appreciated the laundry and wi fi.

    Breakfast was disappointing.

    Superb

    I liked the location and unlike other hotels in Japan I was able to find it easily even in the darkness since the building is visible from the subway exit. The view from the room (on the 13th floor) was fantastic, I enjoyed it a lot. The size of the room was also good - I stayed in a single room.

    I was asked to pay as soon as I arrived. Otherwise room key wouldn't work. This was unusual and not very pleasant.

    Although the hotel is very near the Namba train station, you must be very familiar with the station exits to find the closest exit. It took us about 20-30 mins before we could locate the hotel and that was after we have asked for help. But after that it was very convenient. The hotel is near shopping, eateries (there is an Ippudo ramen branch near by) and Namba station which you can take the train to Nara or Kobe or Kyoto and of course direct to Kansai Airport (which is one stop after the Premium Outlet at Rinku). The hotel room is good size, clean and comfortable. Breakfast not included but no worries there are lots of cafes nearby.

    Fabulous

    The hotel is closed to Namba station and about 8 minutes walk to Dotonburi area. Also a perfect stop for people need to catch the early flight to Kansai Airport. Breakfast at 1000 Yen is the best of all the hotels I stayed. Many selections for both Western and Japanese. Overall will recommend to all.

    Room very small...but all the rooms in Japan are small (if you book semi-double or economic double).

    For the price I paid, I will rank this hotel at least 8 out of 10 in every category.

    It is quite difficult to find for the first time.

    Very good

    This hotel was near to the Nakai station & Namba station so much. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was also very satisfying me. If I have one more chance to stay in Osaka, I will choose this hotel again without hesitating.

    The only thing I could not stand during staying was smell of cigarette. But there is an air cleaner in a room.

    Superb

    Clean room and the room is not too small so you still have some space to move around. The hotel has this homey feeling which is good when you're away in a foreign country. Location is near the Namba JR station - 5 minute walk, but you just have to do a transfer at Imamiya (JR Loop) to Namba. Not too much of an issue. Great hotel to stay in.
