This is my 4th stay at this hotel, this trip I come with few hundred of my company delegates. It is just above Namba station which has a direct rapid train to the airport.

The location is the star attraction of this hotel. Inside Namba station with quick direct access to the subway and overland trains. Coming from Shin-Osaka is a breeze if traveling by Shinkansen...just 15mins on Midosuji Line. Really don't think the location could have been any better...you are 10 mins walk from all the action, eating, drinking and shopping of Dotonburi,...

The rooms are small but then again most rooms in the hotels in Japan are small. The location is great as you are right in the middle of everything with he train just below your hotel. it is a little bit more expensive than other newer hotels but the location is worth the price difference.
