Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rooms were clean and bathroom amenities were replenished everyday. Only one pillow per bed, they dont allow extra pillow. No in-room phone.

Breakfast should be improved. Same menu everyday, in the 7 days that we stayed - there were two days that egg and bread were not available - should be breakfast staples. No fresh fruits.

overall, will still go back to this hotel due to cleanliness and location. Staff are also kind and helpful.

Thank you for staying. And thank you for the review. Have you stayed at the Honmachi store? Welina Hotel Dotonbori is a 3-minute walk from Osaka Metro's Nippombashi Station Exit 6. The entrance to Dotonbori is a 2-minute walk, and the Glico sign is a 10-minute walk. However, it takes 15 minutes because it is busy. It is open and very beautiful in one year. The staff will help you as much as possible. Check in time is 15 o'clock, check out time is 10 am. Before check-in, after check-out, we keep your luggage. We look forward to your arrival.

With many hours to kill before the check in time of 3 pm, the nearby Dotonbori street is a good place to browse, within walking distance (but not too close to the crowd) – if you are into shopping for gifts or just window shopping. Access at any time for food or snacks. The nearby Dotonbori street gets very crowded in the late afternoon into the night, there is a river with bridges, plenty of small restaurants (long queue though). The room itself is very small, we had 2 single beds, my friend had her luggage on her bed while mine was right behind the closed door. Expected for the prize we paid in a city in Japan. OK for a 1-night stay.

Thank you for staying. Check in time is 3 pm. Until then we keep the luggage of our guests. The hotel is very close to Dotonbori. There are many restaurants and shops. It is a 3-minute walk from Nihonbashi Station on the Osaka Metro. We are sorry that the room is small. The hotel has economy twin rooms and standard twin rooms. Economy twin may be a little narrow. We will be able to stay at a reasonable price for that amount. Please come again. We look forward to your visit. Welina Hotel Dotonbori MIYAZAKI

Stay for 2nights. The hotel have help us to combine twin bed into a double bed, very helpful staff. Room is big, clean and new hotel. Location is near to metro Nipponbashi line exit6 and Kitentsu Nipponbashi. You can go to Kyoto with Kitentsu Nipponbasho station. Walking distance to Kuromon market, namba street, shinshabashi and dotonbori. Two 711 with tax free available outside the street. I will definately stay to this hotel if I return to Osaka. Strongly recommend!

This is a budget hotel, so no frills at all. Several Osaka hotels would have complimentary coffee all day, and a mobile phone per room that you can bring around the city; this hotel did not even have a phone per room. Breakfast selection was poor and limited (see pics); and breakfast ended at 9am.

What disappointed me was that, for a Japanese hotel, this was a dirty hotel. Examples: 1) when I first got into my room (room 702), there was an empty juice bottle on the floor left by the previous guest, and trash under the bed; 2) they change the beddings and towels daily, but never clean/vacuum the floor; 3)when I enter the room in the evenings after a day out (when the aircon is still off), the room smells like a sewer, and you have to liberally spray with room air freshener; 4) they never wash/replace used coffee cups in the room; 5) my sister’s bathroom (room 701) had a stained and dirty shower curtain (although they changed it immediately when she complained); 6) when the bathroom mirror fogged up after a shower, you could clearly see the gross dirt and grime which had accumulated (see pics); 7) there was spit or snot on the lobby couch which was not wiped in 2 days.

Staff: reception female staff were ok, though no one spoke English. The male breakfast staff were surly, and not once in our 4-day stay did they smile or even greet you “Good morning” (in English or Japanese).

Location: very near Kuromon Market (3 minutes' walk) and a subway stop, but be warned: the hotel address is not known by cab drivers. When we took a cab from the OCAT Namba bus station to the hotel on our arrival date, we were dropped off at a distant Dotonbori exit, about 2km from hotel. We had to walk (with large suitcases) to the hotel; no one we asked help from along the way knew the hotel or its location. It took almost an hour to search for the hotel. (Tip: Hotel is near a Grand Fresa Hotel and nearest mall is Doton Plaza; those may be a better markers.)

The hotel rate we got from Agoda was very good. But certainly, there are far better and CLEANER hotels in Osaka, even on a budget. I will not stay here again unless there are absolutely no other hotels available.

Thank you for staying. We apologize that we did not have the service you requested. The hotel offers simple settings to reduce charges and is well-received by customers who want to stay cheap. We have also reviewed cell phones for rent, etc., but as we mentioned earlier, we cut them to offer you cheap rooms. If you would like to stay simply and cheaply when you come to Osaka, please choose our hotel. I am sorry that we made you feel uncomfortable about cleaning. Every day we call for cleaning companies to improve. Thank you for writing this message using your important time. Share this message with the cleaning staff and we will use it for improvement.

The location is perfect if you want to be near Dotonbori which is quite touristy, but good for eating local food and shopping. I also stayed at Welina Umeda which is in a less touristy area - I prefered that area, but it depends what you're looking for. The rooms are small yet very clean, modern, great facilities and lots of thought for the traveller - electric toilet, high quality shampoo and shower gel, great shower, comb, razor, toothbrush etc, if you forget your own. Beds are comfortable and bedding is nice. The neighbourhood is quite interesting, lots of love hotels, which if you're new to seeing these, that is interesting in itself.
I would certainly recommend this hotel - excellent value for money. Only thing is that check-out is at 10am, which I think is way too early.

Welina Dotonbori is strategically located near the famous Dotonbori street in the osaka prefecture, as it is just 2 blocks away from the busy strip. The hotel is distinguished in the street as it is the only one that looks classy (no offense meant, my opinion) compared to what is nearby. though it is quite a walk to the train station, especially if you are using the JR pass (like we did).

The lobby is spacious, and will be welcomed by very accommodating receptionists. the lobby has their own money changer, so don't worry about being short in cash.

the room: as, i guess, rather common in Japan, the room is quite small for 2 single beds. if that's an average, then it's fine.beside the bed is an AC outlet, and 2 slots of USB ports.it also has a controlled lighting system that suits your brightness preference. the room has a mini ref, a kettle, complementary coffee and tea and is refreshed daily even if your didn't want to make up your room. it has a flat screen tv, but all of the about 16 channels, all are in nihonggo. and only one news channel that supports english. the japanse takes pride on cleanliness hence, there is a standard sets slippers.

the washroom: a first-timer in japan would be surprised how small the washrooms are. until later realize that, that is the average space. what i was more surprised of was despite the compact washroom, it was elegantly designed, complete with toiletries and more. it has the standard automatic washing system. water pressure is excellent. and nothing is broken.

the food: they serve buffet breakfast, the only thing that i noticed during our 5 days stay, the menu never changed even once. it's the same old salad, egg, nuggets, soup, and bread.

service: service is above average in welina, they obviously have researched what customers' preferences are. they are warm and informative. even if they cannot understand english that much, they will try their best to help you with your needs.

would i go back? sure!

My collage and I recently stayed at Welina Hotel Dotonbori,Osaka from 13-17 Jan 2020. For our stay, we booked a Twin Room (Room 614).

All I and my collage started to experience severe itching and it was not long after that bites marks began to surface. Only then did we identify that it those were the result of BED BUGS bites!! We are absolutely certain of this having gone to see the doctor as a result. The number of bites were so severe that each of us had an average of 20 bites – 30 bites, whilst I had more than 30! A photo of the bites on my behind and my hand is attached for your attention. This has not only caused us thorough inconvenience but pain and suffering for over 6 days and up till this date.

I do check the review at agoda review,I found other guest face same problem in same room @ last month 25 Dec 2019

Answer from 道頓堀 W
The nearest station is the subway. The JR Pass can only be used on the JR Line, so you need to go to JR Namba Station. WelinaHotelDotonbori SATOU
