The hotel is conveniently located near the namba station where you can directly connect to the a number of subway lines, the nankai line and JR. Its also a walking distance to dotonburi and shinsaibashi. The hotel looks pretty common outside but the rooms are really trendy and modern. The staff are polite and they will go out of their...

From the outside the hotel looks very conventional and unexciting but inside it's a different matter altogether. The decor is stylish and beautiful and the rooms lovely. I really liked the raised platform surrounded by screens on which the futon was situated. It was remarkably quiet, considering the chaos, which is Osaka, just outside. The restaurant has great views. It... More

My stay here, though only lasting one night (it's very popular), was really memorable. The room was huge with traditional sliding doors and separate areas. I loved it - it felt both authentic and retro. Get breakfast in the room - it's great. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Large room, with interesting attractive decor. Small bathroom but clean and functional. Bed rolls were hard, may be possible to ask for a double roll as we got in a lot of other hotels. Not particularly quiet but that goes with the location.

We arrived late in the evening on the Kansai Rapit from the airport. The hotel is almost right outside the Kansai train station. The check-in was fast.

Located near Namba station with Takashimaya and Shinsaibashi street, very convenient to get around and do some shopping or exploring. Hotel provided a ryokan-like breakfast which we thoroughly enjoyed! :) Room was in good condition and staff were very helpful!

You see a lot of glowing reviews of this place. Not sure what the reviewers mean. Are they actually paying >$150 U.S. for a room with just breakfast???? Maybe it's worth the ryokan-like ambience in the middle of Namba, replete with tatami floors. My one experience with this place is a room for $78 U.S. with a wonderful, authentic, ryokan... More
