We primarily chose this hotel because of its location and value for money. Stayed 4 nights before moving to another city then came back to stay at its sister property next door. The hotel is family-run, with the teenage kids speaking some English. We did not have problems with checking in late in the evening, and check out was through...

Pros: 1. Near to Shin-Imamiya Station (JR and Nankai), good if you are arriving late from Kansai Airport and do not want to spend too much time travelling to your hotel. 2. Cheap, good standard private single room with attached bathroom, very good for single travelers who are on a budget while not sacrificing comfort and privacy. Cons: The extremely...

This hotel is a good and affordable hotel. It is about 30 mins walk away from Namba, 15 mins walk away from Denden Town and 5 mins away from Tsuutenkaku. The best part, this hotel is only 1 min away from Dobutsuen-mae station. I have been staying in this hotel ever since it started and the staff all remember me....

It was a great stay at Hotel Chuo Selene. We stayed for 5 nights and were very impressed with the service and quality. The location is close to 3 different train stations and very close to a legendary ramen Muteppo. Shinseikai and the zoo is both near there which provides people both good food selection and entertainment. All in all,...

We stay here for 11 nights in triple room on the 6th Floor. The hotel location is the best thing for this hotel, it close to JR Shin-Imamiya, Subway Dobutsuenmae, and Nankai Shinimamiya. Also, you can walk within 5 minutes to Tsutenkaku tower which is one of the sightseeing place in osaka. Lawson and Familymart are located on the corner...

Close to Shin-Imamiya train station if you travel by train or just 1 minute walk from Dobutsuen-mae subway station exit 3 ( Midosuji Line or Sakaisuji Line) but if you catch Nanki train from Kansai airport , it takes about 8 minute walk. The hotel is very clean, room is neat and comfortable with full equipments. There are small kitchen...

Generally, the hotel is good and fair considering its cheap price level. We got the 6-bedroom dormitory all for ourselves even if we are only four in the group. We wanted a bigger space that's why. I would throw 5/5 in cleanliness and its security aspect. 3 train stations are just few stones away from the hotel. However, if you're...

An affordable, clean and warm hotel with basic need. The owner is a friendly guy who is willing to answer your question and even watched us leaving the hotel with a goodbye. The best thing is, you could store your huge luggage with the hotel while travelling to another part of Kansai. 5 minutes walk away from subway and JR...
