This hotel is perfectly located, close to the Namba Nankai train station (perfect if you're coming or going to the airport). It's under an arcade, with lively shops, restaurants, and surroundings. It is also only a few meters from Dotonbori. Breakfast was ok, comparable to other hotels of similar class. The hotel itself is a little dated, but well maintained.
Good Location, Friendly Staff, Good Food, Shopping Area,, I enjoy Slots Machine they call it Pachenco... This Namba Hotel is Highly Reccommendable, there's British Pub on the 2nd floor, my husband enjoyed..
Hotel is situated at strategic location in Namba. It is easy to find and convenient to walk to train stations. Nearby amenities like Takashimaya, OIOI, Big Camera and food streets etc. are just few steps away. Simply love the location as you can find plenty of delicious food around it: BBQ, sushi, takoyaki, Ichiran Ramen etc. Only disappointment is that the room size is slightly smaller, where you might find it squeezy to have 3 big luggages in it. Otherwise, everything is perfect.
The location was perfect, right in the middle of the arcades. The hotel is just a short walk from Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi, lots of shops and restaurants right outside the hotel. The rooms are very clean, as can be expected in Japan. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, even going above and beyond expectations. The breakfast spread was very diverse and abundant, they even have private rooms which you can use, if you want to enjoy your breakfast in peace, away from the main dining area. I definitely highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Osaka.
The location is perfect close to Namba stations for transport to other areas and airport. It is in an area of arcades with lots of eating options. Also not far from Dotonbori, a great place to eat. Room was a comfortable size and clean. Peaceful and quiet with no street noise. We would stay here again.
This hotel is located in an arcade, which worried us when we arrived until we got into our room. There was no noise at all for outside. It is a great location with numerous food outlets in the area. There is a Lawson, grocery store, just outside the front door. The room was a good size and there was plenty of room for two suitcases and still room to move. There is a smartphone that comes with the room which you can take outside the hotel during your stay - this was very convenient. Breakfast was good with a good range of dishes. It is within walking distance of most attractions and the Shinkansen train station, close to the subway and across the road from Dotonbori. There are good laundry facilities. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Location: Located on the 3rd floor within Namba. There are abundance of street foods and restaurants around. Namba subway station is a short walk whilst Namba Station via Namba walk is a short 15 minutes walk. Front counter: Check in and check out was routine. Done within minutes. Courteous front counter staff. Room: Stayed in the 7th floor oriental twin room (hotel has 8 floors). View from the room was nothing to shout about. As with all the hotel in Japan, noise intrusion was almost non existent. Room size was average by Japanese standard and an additional bed made it almost impossible to walk in the room let alone find a place to place your large bags. Cleanliness was exceptionally good. The bathroom was clean and spotless . Bathroom amenities were the usual and was replenished daily. The bed was firm and comfortable. Linen was clean and crisp. Lighting was adequate. Facilities: Not much facilities but there are vending machines and money changing machine in the lobby. Do spend some time visiting their garden located on the 4th floor which is open daily from 7am to 7pm. Lovely place to unwind and away from the noise just 3 floors down. Food: Did not take their in house buffet breakfast as there are loads of restaurants around, some that stays open 24 hours. Lawson and family mart is also a stones throw away.…
We love staying at the Namba Oriental. We stayed twice on this trip and on our last trip to Osaka two years ago. We will definitely stay again when we next return. It’s a short walk from the Namba Station and is located within a busy mall. Lots of noise and action outside but very quiet inside. Not far to walk to the Dotonbori either. Decent sized rooms and bathrooms. Well equipped and clean. Coin operated washing machines on some floors which came in very handy (we’re on a 4 week trip). An older property but no issues at all. A great place to stay. Book early on their website for discounted rates.
Very clean and tidy. The desk staff were helpful and polite, and even upgraded our room, which was an unexected surprise. Very thankful for this. This hotel has the best location possible in Osaka. Close to subways, and right in the center of a busy, bustling shopping arcade. It's surreal to walk out of the hotel front doors, and suddenly be surrounded by thousands of busy shoppers! I loved it. Out the back exit of the hotel, a selection of restaurants and bars are within two minute walking. We were especially fond of 'The Hub'. The room was very spacy, and modern. I loved the view over the busy shoppers below, and the dazzling array of blinking neon lights and buildings. The room included a free smart-phone to use while we stayed here, with unlimited internet and international calls. As well as a big TV. A short walk away, the Dontonbori river can be found. This makes for a beautiful walk during twilight, with the water reflecting the bright neon and red sky together.…
The hotel is a short walk to the underground Namba walk, which connects to two subway stations. This made traveling around osaka and even to Kobe, Nara, Kyoto really convenient. Lots of restaurants, shopping and entertainment options near the hotel. The hotel website also provided useful photo guides on how to walk to the hotel from the various subway lines. This was much appreciated, as it could get quite confusing walking around the shopping arcades and underground walkways. The room was spacious and clean.
