Yamatoya Honten
Ranked #200 of 322 Hotels / Ryokan in Osaka
Reviewed 16 April 2017

We stayed for 4 nights in a Japanese twin with bathroom. The room was very small and the bathroom needed a refresh. The fine print indicated we would have a tea/coffee maker, electric kettle, iron in the room. These were only available if you asked. The air conditioning didn't work very well.

The location is ok, though incredibly noisy at night.

We stayed here for 2 nights and while breakfast was nice and the room itself was pleasant, this was tainted by the noise. We had the worst nights sleep we have had during our entire trip- walls are paper thin and roadworks were going on from 1am-5am (pneumatic drills etc) which kept us awake all night. When I called reception to ask to change rooms, the staff spoke no English and told us they couldn't help.

I also felt that compared to other accommodation we stayed in, this was extremely expensive. I understand that it's a traditional experience that you're paying for but we didn't feel it was worth the expense.

We stayed only one night as a group of 7 (2 rooms) but wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were clean and the staff was extremely friendly. We regret not having enough time to enjoy the baths in the basement. We asked the staff for the free kimono rentals and they were very accommodating. A female staff member went with us to our rooms and helped 3 of us put on our kimonos properly. They held our luggage after checkout and were extremely friendly. It is very close and walkable to Dotonburi and Kuromon Ichiba Market. We highly recommend this ryokan.

This place was a huge disappointment. The first thing we noticed was the stench coming from the toilet. If absolutely stunk of urine. The room itself looked a little grubby but wasn't too bad. But the noise! Dreadful piped music was played in the hallway until late at night and due to the very thin walls, kept us awake in our room. Drunken businessmen filled the foyer and the halls, which my children found very upsetting. Reception staff were very friendly but that was the only thing going for this place, apart from its location, which is very handy.
