If you want to be amongst the crowds and take in the city atmosphere then this is a good hotel. It is in an ideal location in the Dotonbori area with its many famous bars, restaurants and night life on its door step and of course the canal. If you are into shopping then this is the place to be with its famous shopping streets and nearby department stores and high end shops. Close to several metro lines for easy access to the greater Osaka area. We were upgraded to a superior room, which for Japan standards, was a good size, even had a sofa and small coffee table. The bathroom had a good hot power shower and decent size bath tub. The hotel seems to be quite new with both the room and bathroom very modern, bright and clean. The reception staff were friendly, pleasant and helpful. This however could not be said for the bar/restaurant staff. There is a small bar adjacent to the restaurant and as we only wanted a cocktail we wanted to sit at the bar. Even though there were a local couple eating at the bar the bartender refused to allow us to sit there and even got a bit rude pointing for us to sit in the restaurant. The service was poor and slow. The one big downside to the hotel is the WIFI which is very very slow, even the reception staff bring this to your attention at check in. Otherwise a pleasant stay and would stay again on a future visit

Hotel's Favourite
We’ve stayed at this hotel several times now as the location is fabulous, the rooms are always very clean and decent in size and the staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed this time. We were given a smaller room across from the laundry with an ugly view out the window. Don’t get me wrong, the room was clean and again the staff were friendly especially the beautiful young lady with the ponytail who went above and beyond, trying to help me make a booking at a cafe. Thank you so much for trying to help. I really appreciate it. Close to transport, shopping and a variety of foods, you couldn’t ask for a better location. Highly recommend a stay here

This is fairly standard Holiday inn in a excellent location. The room was nice and quiet and was sufficient for holiday inn standards - Good and clean but nothing exceptional. Possibly could do with some renovation to bring it up to modern standards. Check in staff spoke good English and was helpful. The location was excellent being that it was right in Dotobori within walking distance of a lot of restaurants, shops, attractions and not too far from the station. Was a bit pricey for a holiday inn but you are basically paying for the location here which is the key thing for this hotel.

I was travelling with family and had a double room and a triple room. The 3 single beds were spacious by Japanese standards. We requested the 2 rooms be close together and this was accommodated as they were opposite each other. The room itself is very comfortable and sound proof from the hustle outside. It is right next to a Lawsons and a short walk from 7 Eleven. Great location if you want to be in the thick of things. Very much of a Holiday Inn standard.

The location of this hotel is it greatest strength. It is right in the middle of the action and I always think when you stay somewhere for a short time you might as well stay in the middle of the action. The rooms are reasonably sized for japan. It’s greatest weakness is it’s buffet breakfast. The restaurant is far too small for the number of people, so small that is uncomfortable. We had breakfast the first morning and didn’t bother after that. The staff are ok, not overly friendly but not rude.

The hotel is looking a bit tired ( especially the rooms), and there is often a funny small in the reception. But you get a big bed, that isn't pushed up against the wall, a safe, good aircon, and blackout curtains. And a very deep relaxing bath with lots of hot water. The best thing though is the location. Right in the heart of Dotonburi - but you don't hear a thing in the rooms. Finally, the staff are lovely. So, if you want a comfortable, reasonably priced hotel right in the middle of this iconic mad lively area, then this is the place for you. But if strolling along leafy avenues in the peace and quiet is more your thing, then avoid this area completely. Because its as mad as Japan gets. Safe, but mad.

Came back to stay at the HI Osaka Namba due to it's proximity to the shopping and eating district. The hotel has a fantastic location with easy access to train and business as well as to KIX. From our previous stay (about 5 years ago), we knew the hotel was extremely busy and certainly nothing has changed. The rooms are small as you would expect given the premium location but was still functional. Breakfast buffet was very good - lots of variety however it's almost always jam packed with people and difficult to navigate given the tight space. One thing that ruined our stay was the overall cleanliness which I found to be not up to standards of other hotels in Japan. On our first night, we had found a blood stained bedsheet and given that it was late already (around 8pm), we thought we'd let it go and that it would be changed the next day. After spending the entire day at USJ, we'd come back and found that the stained sheets were still there. Informed reception the next morning and it was subsequently changed. To the hotel's credit, after lodging a complaint with IHG, we were contacted with an apology and provided with 2 night reimbursement on points (we stayed on points).

Great location. We first took the train from Osaka Station and then walked from nearest station to Hotel, which was about 6-7 minutes. We decided when leaving to grab a taxi back to the station, which was pretty cheap. The location near sites, shops and restaurant was great. We booked a double, which I thought was a good size for 3 star and in comparison to other Japanese Hotels. Breakfast could have had slightly more selection, however it was pretty good. Beds were comfortable, air-con worked well and bathroom was clean and functional. A pretty good stay and I would return.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days and the location was fantastic. Hotel was closed to all the restaurants on Dontonbori street. If you like to shop, Quijote is very near to the hotel, like 5-7 minutes walk. Rooms were neat and clean but very small for 3 people. If you carry a lot of luggage, there is no space to walk in a room for 3 people. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful.

Stayed three nights steps from the Dotombori district with countless restaurants, street food, shopping and entertainment options. Easy access from two subway/rail stations and multiple subway lines (Midosuji line from Shin-Osaka and the JR rail line to Univeral Studios w/connections). The room itself was clean, quiet and well maintained with comfortable beds and good AC. Breakfast buffet was 7-10 and had decent selection of scrambled eggs, bacon, pasta, breads, cereal, yogourt, fruit, rolls, lunch meat, cheese, juice, coffee, tea, other items and a few Osaka street foods to try. Also a 7/11 and Lawson steps from the lobby for takeout breakfasts or snacks or ATM. The carpets in the halls show their age and some dirt but not really an issue, the carpets in the room was new and clean.
