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.

Hotel is a good location close to Osaka station. However, at night it's also directly next to hostess bars which was kind of awkward to walk through as well as a busy freeway which kept me up at night (to their defense they did have double windows). Besides those, the rooms were clean and spacious enough. This was a business trip so it was sufficient.

Generally, this is a fairly good hotel if you are traveling light. 10mins walk to JR Osaka which make it good to travel around osaka. Will never go hungry as there a wide variety of food. And the Takoyaki @ Hankyu Higashidori St is really tasty and cost only 300yen for 8pcs plus a can of drink. If looking for electronics just head to Yodobashi which is just across JR Osaka.

Actually rather good, comfortable hotel. Right beside the start of one of Osaka's busy night life streets and a little prone to being "busy" with what another reviewer has called "watchers". It never troubled me but it did mean some street noise at night. Room was quite spacious really for japanese hotel and was well equiped. Although it was not particularly cheap, the city was very busy the weekend I stayed so accomodation was pricy anyway. My sole "complaint" was the noise from the room next door which woke me and could only be described as the noisiest sex session I have ever had the misfortune to experience without the benefit of visual accompaniment. I was tired the next day but only from the lack of sleep, my neighbours never surfaced that I am aware of....
Breakfast was ok although limited in choice. Free coffee available all day in the lounge for guests. I would think that single women using this hotel may feel uncomfortable with the groups of young girls who hang around the corner out side the door but they were harmless enough, looking for guys with money to burn in the clubs they promoted I guess. Rooms to the rear may be quieter options. Close enough to shopping and restaurants and only a short walkto the main station.

Location is central. The property is very old and smelly. The room was VERY OLD and furniture was VERY OLD. The hallways had a very OLD odor that lingers everywhere. No closets to store clothes. It was depressing to stay in this property. I cut my trip short by a day!

We stayed at Il monte during our honeymoon, despite it's convenient location (near Osaka station) and the friendly helpful staff I felt that it was not enough improve the quality of the stay there.

We found hair, tissues and prawn (yes a prawn!?!) under the bed of our first room, and the walls had a strange yellow stain. The rooms were musty and stuffy, it didn't help that the aircon let out occassional "booms" and turned off as it pleased. The kind staff changed our room for us, but the second room wasn't much better. The a/c was still temperamental and the room was dark, smelly and the walls were yellowy too. It was probably was the rooms were quite dated and in serious need of an overhaul and upgrade.

Hotel is clean tidy and fairly modern. Excellent location and rooms are decent size for Japan and the price point.

Overall an excellent stay and recommend if you are in Osaka and on a budget with a vibrant nightlife.

Front desk staff spoke reasonable english and very friendly.

Il Monte was recommended by Kayak and its price and location were the main factors in choosing this hotel with my friend. Even though I live in Japan, I'm always a little worried about staying in a Japanese-style hotel given I'm more accustomed to Western standards. This hotel did not disappoint me at all and I would gladly stay there again.

As other reviewers have mentioned, it's in a great location, but is not necessarily easy to find. Luckily I use an iPhone and was able to navigate our way from Umeda station to the hotel with relative ease. Once my friend and I got the hang of it, though, it's really very convenient. The building that houses the hotel is essentially in the heart of one of Osaka's nightlife areas. Admittedly, though, the gay area accounts for a large portion of this nightlife, though it is very low-key and would go unnoticed to the uninitiated. There are multiple shopping and dining venues within easy reach, frequented by locals. I always assume this to be a good thing. I did, however, dislike the ease of access to the hotel for non-guests. As noted in other reviews, the hotel occupies the 3rd to 9th(?) floors of the building, with elevator access available at street level to anyone. That was a little disconcerting, but Japan is notoriously safe, and this really wasn't *that* much of a concern.

My friend and I reserved a double room (two singles) and were pleasantly surprised at the size of the room. Most Japanese hotel rooms are slightly larger than a postage stamp, but this room had plenty of room for luggage stowage as well as a desk area. The bathroom was quite large by Japanese standards. The ceiling in the shower area, though, was very low and I barely fit even though I'm just 5'8''. Anyone of above average height may have some trouble with the height of the shower fixtures and the low ceiling.

Our room faced the freeway and the busy intersection just below. The lights at night were beautiful and, despite what other reviews may say, we didn't hear any noise from the street nor from other rooms. Though, we were on the 9th floor so this may account for that.

My only complaint about the room was that the beds were a bit hard and the pillows were very thin. Otherwise, I thought the room was great.

The night of our arrival, I asked the front desk staff for a recommendation of a good okonomiyaki restaurant nearby. The staff were very helpful and directed us to a restaurant a few short blocks away. Their recommendation was amazing and we had the best okonomiyaki ever. Turns out this same place was recommended by a Japanese friend of mine, too, but we didn't know it at the time. Though, I'll warn you that English is not spoken at this hotel, so I'd recommend anybody looking to stay here have some working knowledge of Japanese or be really good at charades.

We did not partake in the breakfast that was available for about ¥1,000, but we did purchase discounted aquarium tickets through the front desk, which was a great idea.

Overall, this was a great stay for a weekend getaway. I'd definitely return and would recommend it to friends.

Il Monte is very close to Umeda subway station/Osaka JR – it is behind HEP 5 which is where the Giant Ferris Wheel is – so if you are struggling to – it is only five minutes away from the ferris wheel. The room is average size for a Japanese hotel room but is set up nicely so that most of the luggage can be stored out of the way. There are good quality soaps etc in the bathroom and the sheets are very clean. The hotel room looks like it is either new or refurbished. There is internet connection in your room if you take a laptop and there is one channel in English (which is actually quite good as most hotels we stayed in had no English channels). Considering not much has been written up about this hotel it is a fantastic choice and would definitely recommend it if you are planning to stay in the Kita/Umeda area of Osaka.
