Our room was small but clean & efficient use of space. There was a fridge & microwave (though we didn't use the micro as we couldn't figure out how to use it). Washroom was tight but still fine. Our view was the hotel across the alley. Every night we came back to the hotel, we had to hold our breath...

Stayed in one night. Rate in Osaka is recently very high, but, regarding this hotel, it was low as I stayed on Monday. Room was old, it needed to be renovated, but, room was kept clean and had minimum equipments as bath, TV, Wifi, refrigerator and so on. As other badgetary level Japanese hotels,room was small and functional.Location was satisfactory....

Great sleep at night ! The hotel is located nearby Keihan train station and Temmabshi subway is just across the street. Osaka Castle is 20 minutes walk from this hotel. Reception counter is on 2nd floor, and the staff is very helpful. The room was clean and tidy with private bathroom, overall we were happy to stay there for 3...

This is a budget motel - no frills. My room was a little dated however reasonably clean. It was nice to have a decent size fridge in the room and the staff were friendly. The location is good, just diagonally across the road to the train station and Starbucks and around a 15 minute walk to the Osaka Castle.

Check-in was a little tough as hardly any of the staff spoke English, but through the wonders of hand motions we were able to check-in soon enough. The room is pretty small (there's a bed, small desk, and closet) and the bathroom is pretty much the equivalent of an airplane bathroom with a tub added to it, but hey it's...

The room looks recently renovated but there are aging stains in the bathroom and dust accumulated in less obvious places, but nevertheless it is clean and tidy. The toilet seat does not seem to fit the toilet bowl very well, and the automatic washing functions look very basic compared to even department store toilets. Nevertheless, staff are very courteous and...

Check in and check out was so easy and fast! We liked the room and it was extremely comfortable. The bed was nice and the room was a lot bigger than expected. We enjoyed this as our last night in Japan and would definitely come back again!

The room seemed like there has been time since the last renovation and cleaning hasn't been perfect either... there were stains everywhere. Though, wi fi is really good , air conditioning works and the place is close to subway and restaurants.

Our last hotel during a three week trip in Japan and this was definitely the worst hotel of the journey. The room is clean but the service is poor. We asked only to borrow a power adapter for our European power plugs and this was the only hotel (out of seven that we stayed in Japan) that said they didn't...

“Some rooms have giant fridges, some have smaller ones. My room had a normal fridge for a hotel, but my cousin's room had a giant fridge, which takes up too much space. Maybe ask for a room with a smaller fridge.”
