Where do I begin with the problems? This may seem centrally located, but it is still quite a hike from Osaka Station, especially with bags. As other travelers have noted, the entrance is fairly well hidden, we got lucky and walked in the right door and figured out where to go the first time, but that was just dumb luck. The area was the most seedy place I have been anywhere in Japan. There was trash on the streets, and loud fights going on practically everywhere. Had to push our way past the drunks on the way in and the way out. Staff took FOREVER to do check in and couldn't seem to find our reservation and yes, then it cost a bit more for no appreciable reason. Luggage storage area simply a roped off area in the tiny check in room (anybody could make off with your luggage and nobody would know the difference). We asked for two keys because there were two of us and got major static, but eventually our two keys. Elevator up to our floor claustrophobic beyond belief - could barely fit the two of us and our luggage. The room was small and cramped. All the advertised amenities were there, but in miniature. The walls are done up in 1970s dark paneling, so lighting is a major issue. Also had to hunt around to find the electrical outlets to charge our phone/tablets. Bathroom was decent sized, but the faucet sounded like a 747 taking off every time we used it. EVERY time we left our room, we were stopped by hall staff demanding to know who we were and where we were going. Nobody tells you that the rooms are right next to a busy freeway overpass, so you have cars and trucks going by all day and night. Then in the morning you are treated to the sights and sounds of guys pouring their drunken girlfriends into taxis right out in front of the hotel. And yes, there are the police and ambulances constantly moving around 24/7. Then the breakfast is an adventure. We bought tickets, but as there are no signs we sat down at one of the tables and were almost assaulted by the dining room lady who DEMANDED our tickets. After getting over our sheer embarrassment from that we went to the "buffet" that was limited at best, with most things running out almost immediately. It was a struggle to find something to eat in any sufficient quantity to start your day. Protein offerings ran out FAST, even in the very early hours. If you want an adventure in lodging, this is the place for you. If you want someplace that is relatively friendly, has some customer service, is not overrun by rude staff and drunks, go somewhere....anywhere....else.…
Clean, spacious (for Japan), multiple USB ports for charging, friendly staff, CRAZY busy area, great location, surrounded by restaurants, soundproof windows so zero street noise. Near Osaka JR station and another metro station. Free coffee machine in the lobby area.
Me and my boyfriend made a trip, we first stayed 4 nights in Kyoto and then came to Osaka for 5 days. The staff is friendly BUT on our first night here, our next door neighbours ( very angry chinese people ) were screaming and pounding the walls. The walls are very thin in the rooms so you can hear everything that goes on in your neighbours room. After we went to make a noise complaint, I wanted to go for a smoke on the first floor. And when we got to the first floor there were drunk locals passed out infront of the elevators, there were police and ambulance also. Also the beds are very uncomfortable, very hard and pillows are made of rocks. The only thing keeping me from not giving it a 1 star is because the staff is friendly. The location is good and price cheap, but it’s not worth your time and money. We left after the first night to a new hotel.…
OK for one night stay. Very easy to locate from Osaka Station. Room OK for short stay. In our case, we stayed for 1 night only so fine. Lots of restaurants and shops around. Toilet's faucet seems to be not in its best form. Towels not very new. As I said, OK for short stay. If I have a request, I think the receptionists should learn to have basic English. It was a struggle for us to explain that we were promised an early check-in. They did allow us to check-in a few hours earlier and that we appreciate very much since we flew really far. Thank you.
Poor service. Poor workers have very limited language and communication ability. Poorly trained staffs waste a lot of time to check in. Room cleaning service are very disappointing that makes your cloth lost. Need to pay further after an online full-paid booking. It is also ridiculous that the reception locates on the 3rd floor but there is no any instruction on the ground floor. We arrived there but found nothing on the ground floor so we misunderstood that we are lost. Warning: NEVER book this hotel. It RUINS your journey!!
