Just here for a quick stopover. Easy to find from the station. Check in was painless, and in hotel bar/restaurant was very good too. Room was gorgeous with excellent views of the city. A/C was excellent and quiet. Bathroom was a bit sparse but functional. Breakfast experience was the best I had in Japan. There is something there for everyone....

My partner and I stayed at the Swissotel for 3 nights at at the end of our 3 week trip around Japan. Although we struggled to find an entrance to the hotel when we arrived from Kyoto at Namba station, once there the location was perfect! Also within the station is a huge department store. The hotel is just a...

It was an easy train ride from Kansai airport to Swissotel Namba Station in Osaka. The check-in was made very easy by the front desk staff. We were given a very nice room with stunning view of Namba Park and the Osaka skyline. Each morning our breakfast was at Tavolas 36, the city view was magnificent. They had great food...

Very nice hotel. Best sleep I think I have ever had in a hotel! Exec lounge food was not as good as some others I have been to, but was ok. Location is perfect - it's on top of the train station to Kansai and near a lot of night life. My main point to communicate is hotel access. It's...

Hotel provides service excellence. Breakfast Buffet excellent with an awesome view of the city from the 36th floor.

Enjoyed the movies very much. Location is very...

I'm sure there are better hotels in Osaka but the Swissotel's location cannot be topped. The breakfast buffet was huge and very good. Service was also good. The lobby and rooms are dated and beds are quite uncomfortable but the location makes this a very good choice.
