very small room

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 June 2019
room size seems to be smaller than usual japan hotel. clean toilet but seems small again. very tight space for couples. may be more suitable for solo travellers, since this is a business hotels. quick and high tech check in/out at this hotel. best thing about this hotel: 5min walking distance to the longest and yummy'est shopping alley!

It’s dirt cheap but it’s very clean, staff are very very polite and the whole experience was a nice one. The room was small and hard to find space to open the case but for such a low cost option in a city short on space I think it was still great value.

Thank you for your staying with us here APA HOTEL<HIGASHI-UMEDA-MINAMI-MORIMACHI-EKIMAE> and great review.
We appreciate your feedback regarding to our hotel.
Our hotel intentionally makes small rooms.
That is exactly why the price will be lower and the environmental impact will be lower.
However, the bed size is 140 cm in width, and we are using a bed that has been very popular among many guests.
Thank you for your precious time and opinions.
We are looking forward to seeing you again.

Best location: 2 min from metro station, close to many restaurants, convenience stores, and an ever long shopping arcade yet not in the busiest part of town. The public transport system in Osaka is super efficient, reliable and affordable so access to any part of town is easy. Bed was comfy, room was spotless but smallish (as they often tend to be in Japan) but had everything I needed. I stayed twice and will again on my next visit. Many thanks to the very friendly and helpful staff

The hotel was very clean and well lit. The staff spoke English fairly well and were helpful at check-in and check-out. There were a couple small inconveniences like not having microwaves in the rooms if you wanted to heat up some food, but other than that the rooms were on the small side but very nicely kept. The hotel itself is within walking distance to a lot of shopping and the train system so getting around was fairly easy.

Thank you for using APA Hotel Higashi Umeda Minamimorimachi Ekimae.

I am happy to be satisfied with our customers.

As it is near from the station, it is nice for customers to enjoy sightseeing in Osaka.

If you come to Japan from now on, I would be glad if you could stay at APA Hotel.

The staff was very friendly, check-in late at night easy, we didn’t have breakfast so can’t comment on that though.
The room was extremely clean and tidy. You have all the accessories and amenities you may need for your stay. The bed is comfortable although the pillows are a bit too thin on my opinion.
I have not given a 5 bubbles rating because the room was really small, even though we put our backpacks under the bed.

We have recently come back from a trip to China and Japan, which consisted of a 3-night stay at this hotel in Osaka.
We arrived early am but unfortunately could check-in only at 3pm, which was not ideal as we were very tired from the trip from Tokyo.
The check-in was quick, staff efficient enough, the room small but our bed was very comfortable, we had a nice view and free Shiseido bath products.
We also enjoyed the big tv screen to watch sumo and curling matches in the evening.
The hotel was far from dotonbori, but close to Osaka station, which in my opinion is nicer and cleaner in terms of bars and restaurants.
Overall we did not particularly like Osaka, but the hotel was close to the station so we took a train and visited both Nara and Kyoto instead, which offer way more in terms of attractions.
If you stay in Osaka this is a very good option for a fair price.
Overall I recommend it
