Room way to small even by Japanese standards and also told by hotel that we had to provide a towel for my 5 yr old who was traveling with us. Area not family friendly as too many love hotels around and felt sleepy. Would not recommend this hotel

Close to everything you would want to see in Osaka as a tourist. Very nice staff and the rooms have everything you would want and make use of every square inch. Very clean and at a good price too! :) Lobby and building is probably the best of the three I went to in Japan.

The hotel is right in the town center which is really perfect. There are lots of restaurants, bars and shops in walking distance! The hotel itself is clean and safe. The rooms are a bit small - but that is typical for Japan! I would definitely recommend this place!

A really good hotel to use as a base for exploring Osaka. It is a short walk from Namba Station and very close to Dotombori and the surrounding area. The room was small (even by Japanese standards) but it was very clean, and the service and friendliness of the staff was excellent. I would definitely consider staying here again next...

Great location really close to the centre of Osaka - close to shopping and food. Lovely staff and nice and modern lobby but the rooms were tiny!! Not much room for big suitcases - think a cruise ship sized room. Lovely and clean though and a great place but just be aware of the small room size. Can request a...

The hotel is located in Shinsaibashi, just a few minutes walk from that Guligo sign, near Dotonbori. The price of the hotel is quite high, but it's quite ok given its location that you can easily walk to Dotonbori, Namba, and Shinsaibasi. For local subway, it is closer to Namba station, not Shinsaibashi. The room is quite standard APA hotel....
