This hotel has massive rooms by Japan standards, 60+ SQ. meters. Our room contained two double beds, a 3 person couch, a 2 person couch and the room still had plenty of room. The shower room was bigger than many residential bedrooms in Japan! A fridge and microwave allow for simple meals. There were a few 'rules' the hotel had...

Stayed here for two nights in April 2016. The room was enormous, even by Australian standards for such a reasonable price. All provisions provided which included face masks!!! Comfortable beds, kitchen and lounge area. I'm definitely coming back!!! Also close to station and Namba area.

This hotel is terrible. The staff are i helpful and don't speak very good English. The rooms are large but weird in layout and have very dated decor with wall paper peeling in several places. The beds and pillows are uncomfortable. Location isn't very central with not many restaurants or shops close by. Despite thoroughly enjoying the rest of Japan...

Very spacious . Clean and comfortable. We were a family of 9 and took one room on the top floor and a twin room. Surprised by the space. Staff helpful and attentive with good grasp of English. Close to underground. 24 HR Supermarket and launderette. A real find in a great location

For Japan, our room at 64 squ metres was a most welcome relief from many of the standard " too squeezy rooms". There were some signs of age, but the room was extremely well equipped with a great bathroom and toilet ensuite. Location is very good being close to surface and underground railway stations, and there are a reasonable selection...

Seriously not a good hotel for a western female travelling with her daughter. Trying to find the hotel was a nightmare. In the pictures it looks like a big hotel but it's down a little side street which is not well signed that took me over an hour to find. Not close to anything - way out of Osaka itself...

A good last stop before departing Osaka as you can spread your shopping stuff to pack because of the huge room space. The massage chair and "whirlpool tub (in the room) helps relax your tired body and legs after all the shopping and site visits. Good peace and quiet, away from crazy Namba which is just 2 subway stops away....
