Any review of this hotel would be remiss without a mention of the LOCATION which was incredible- right on Dotonbori Street, just slightly off the main section which lights up at night. Go outside your hotel and walk 5 minutes and you're at the Glico Man sign and the buzz of Dotonbori Street restaurants. We didn't struggle too much with...

We only had one night in Osaka and stayed in the Dotonbori area, so I cannot compare it to other parts of town. Dotonbori was an awesome area with a huge covered pedestrian walkway/shopping mall, and a pedestrian street with tons of restaurants and shops. Note that things are lively until about 10:00 then it gets pretty quiet. Dotonbori Hotel...

We spent one night here at ~$100 (USD), and it felt like a great value. Some of the things we really liked: - 3 massage chairs in the lounge, though they ask you to limit each use to 15 minutes - A machine that makes coffee and tea for free in the lounge - Every night, they have a "happy...

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in January 2017. Our room was small and cozy and it was a bit dated but at least it was clean. What was great about this hotel besides the location, was that it had so many extras included with your stay. During our stay, there was free ramen served at 10:30pm...

Nice hotel, clean, small size room with nice toiletries, small TV, fridge etc. Very local to main Dontonbori area. Free ramen and beer was great but too crowded to enjoy, always a lot of people hanging around the hotel from different conferences. Overall hotel seemed a little dated, but staff were nice and was great value for money considering the...

Great hotel! They checked us in 4 hours earlier for free. Dressed my daughter in kimono (they had kimono day). Lounge area with computers and free coffee. Location - 2 minutes walk to Glico Man sign. I can go on and on and on. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Great hotel with many random things in it e.g free massage chairs. Was in a fantastic location with access to many different bars/restaurant and shopping. The bathroom is quiet small though. There was a laundry and the wifi was really good too.

The best thing about this place is the location. You can walk 500m up the road and you get all the awesome street food, restaurants, and bars. The room was simple, but clean and had everything I needed. Staff spoke English well and were helpful.
