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.

New IHG hotel in a quiet area. Very clean and cozy. Rooms are not big, but have everything needed for a comfortable stay. No bath tabs, but spacious shower cabins. Organic bath amenities. Amazing reception staff. Overall, very good experience over the stay.

Very comfortable boutique IHG sub-brand hotel in an excellent location. Service was excellent. When my wife asked how to get stamps to send post cards to her grandkids, the person at the front desk literally walked her over to the post office. Very fashionably appointed common areas, and the room was very comfortable. No view, though, window was in fact frosted over, admitted light but you could not see out of it. Spacious room, modern bathroom with an excellent and spacious joint shower and large tub. Bed was very comfortable. The hotel is new, I think, and everything is nice and shiny. The lobby was very nice but somehow always seemed a bit deader than it should have been. We went down to have a drink one night, and it was fine, but hopping. Drink was excellent but a bit too much ice to cocktail ratio. Breakfast was not included in our room rate, so we went to one of the many Family Marts or 7-Elevens the night before to stock up for breakfast each day. Room was well equipped with coffee maker and cups and glasses. Location is halfway between the interesting areas, a bit of a quiet neighbourhood, but lots of interesting izakayas and other shops on the backstreets. A very nice park two blocks or so to the south. All in all, a very good place, though a bit pricey.

one of the best hotels I stayed in japan. the room is SPACIOUS and new and extremely clean. although it's in the business district it's only 800yen by taxi to osaka station and the area is quiet a respite from the busyness of downtown. the staff is so helpful and it's a truly international hotel with no rush to clean room at a set time. there's a lovely small wine bar with freshly made food behind the hotel and a great yakiniku restaurant just opposite. a great stay and will return.

We loved voco Osaka and will definitely be back.
It was clean and convenient to get to, and the room was spacious enough.
But the standout was the staff. We arrived late, but even though the Lokal House restaurant on the ground floor closes at 9pm, they still seated us at 8:50pm. Having spent the day in a plane to Tokyo and then a 3-hour train ride, we greatly appreciated this.
Also, the hotel provided comfortable pyjamas and slippers. We asked whether these were available for purchase, but they were not. All the greater our surprise when they handed us a gift on checking out, containing slippers and a tote bag. What a delightful gesture!
We chose this hotel because:
1. Good value for money
2. Close to Dotombori district
3. Close to blue and red Metro lines
4. IHG member hotel
We will definitely be back.

The premium twin room that I stayed at was accurately depicted in the photos. Comfortable full-size beds, with a sofa next to the large, sun filled window. The bathroom had a shower and a bath tub, quite large. The entire room was larger than expected and very comfortably navigable for two adults. There was no enclosed closet, but open racks to hang up clothes and a few large drawers. It was a fine design decision, as closets need walls, so this allows the room to feel roomier all around and it really works. Nevertheless, a safe, hairdryer, plushy slippers, iron and everything you would expect were provided. Not to mention, the decor was very pleasant with cozy colors and textures.

The location was obviously not touristy, which was actually nice. It was in a quiet area but still very convenient. There were two metro lines I used equally frequent, the Yotsubashi line (blue) and the Midosuji line (red). The former took me 3 minutes walk from exit 7 to the hotel, the latter took me 6 minutes from exit 13. Despite of being in a quiet area, there were quite a few well-rated restaurants and shops near by, and they were worth the visit.

The staff gave very warm welcome when I arrived. Despite the fact that I could not speak Japanese, they were capable in helping me out in English and the communication was clear. They were always there to greet you when you come back and wish you a good time when you go out to enjoy your day. I did not get a chance to have breakfast and dine at the hotel, but the restaurant and the cafe area looked inviting and charming.

Overall, this was a very pleasant stay. I highly recommend voco Central Osaka.

Hotel was too new to stay as the dust had yet to settle. Don't the management have their trial stays before opening? Was given tote bags and slippers as a form of compensation for all the inconvenience caused(a joke).
Service staff were all so inexperience, hardly understood english, allocated a vacant dirty room upon checkin was a shocker!
Eldest child who had asthma fell sick due to the dust!
Thou for 7 days, it was the same breakfast menu, the Lady manager was great! She speaks fluent English and empathize our situation! As long as she on service, she would always remember our requirements. She's an asset to the Hotel!

This is a great, new boutique hotel in Osaka. We had an awesome 8-day stay here. The interior and room designs at the hotel are really modern and chic (perfect for cute pictures, the same goes for the restaurant). Breakfast was very good with a strong variety of choices to select from. The Team running the property is extremely kind, thoughtful, attentive and helpful at all times. Our sincerest thank you to everyone who made our stay here so memorable!

Worst service ever. They don’t provide any water, they won’t give any good room service, for everything additional charge, is that how a 5 star hotel works? Very under whelming for a IHG group hotel. It should be avoided by tourists as it’s In a business district and staff is not very cooperative.

The hotel is brand new along with the staff. The amenities in the room were very nice (PJ's, slippers, water, refrigerator). The breakfast both Western and American was tasty. Our issues were communication and guest services. Asked for suggestions for dinner near hotel first person unhelpful, luckily someone working there was able to assist. Dinner we went to turned out great. Also, trying to ask for bedding for the sleeper sofa was difficult. Asking for a late check out for Platinum Elite eventually it was granted but again difficult to communicate. Lastly breakfast the last day, seemed the staff was overwhelmed, service slow, but food again was tasty.

Brand new hotel, only opened a few months.

As you would expect everything is brand new. Stayed for one night whilst in Osaka. Hotel is in a central location easy to walk or catch the subway.

Room was big and serviced all your needs, few nice touches towards environment but without impacting your experience.

Best hotel streaming or casting ability I’ve seen in Asia. Hotel staff very friendly.
