We stayed for 4 nights in a Japanese twin with bathroom. The room was very small and the bathroom needed a refresh. The fine print indicated we would have a tea/coffee maker, electric kettle, iron in the room. These were only available if you asked. The air conditioning didn't work very well. The location is ok, though incredibly noisy at...

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the nearby tube station. By day the area looks busy and not very friendly. On arriving at the hotel from the outside it wasn't promising but as soon as you get inside it is an oasis of calm. We were greeted with a smile and asked to sit down. Within seconds a...

We stayed here for 2 nights and while breakfast was nice and the room itself was pleasant, this was tainted by the noise. We had the worst nights sleep we have had during our entire trip- walls are paper thin and roadworks were going on from 1am-5am (pneumatic drills etc) which kept us awake all night. When I called reception...

We stayed only one night as a group of 7 (2 rooms) but wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were clean and the staff was extremely friendly. We regret not having enough time to enjoy the baths in the basement. We asked the staff for the free kimono rentals and they were very accommodating. A female staff member...

This place was a huge disappointment. The first thing we noticed was the stench coming from the toilet. If absolutely stunk of urine. The room itself looked a little grubby but wasn't too bad. But the noise! Dreadful piped music was played in the hallway until late at night and due to the very thin walls, kept us awake in...

After having stayed in "Western style" hotels on our trip to Japan it was really nice to experience something a little more traditional. A knock on the door from staff coming in to prepare the bedding, along with hot green tea, was a really nice touch as well. Location was excellent for exploring the shopping district. Only a few metro...

First off you can't beat the location! Right across the street from dotonbori! 40 min walk to Osaka castle. 5mins from the train station. Perfect. The staff couldn't speak much English but they were very polite and communicated well with a room confusion before we arrived. The fact that you have your own private onsen for hotel stays was amazing!...
