Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent location! The hotel is very convenient. It’s just next to the main shopping street and like 2 mins walk to railway station. The room comfort and cozy. It is a bit small but normal size in Japan. And the bed is surprisingly big! It’s more than enough for my 4 yo kid to sleep together with us. Staff are very nice and friendly. They can speak English well.

Well worth the top rating on Tripadvisor ! This hotel is exactly what you need, it’s super clean, fresh, comfortable and high quality. The service throughout from front desk team to house cleaning was spot on! I was there with my son for 8 nights and it was so comfortable and convenient. The location of the hotel is great and you are nearby Dontonbori and many many restaurants and bars etc. Its surprisingly quiet too and you don’t hear a sound from outside from the room. We will for sure stay at this hotel again when we are in Osaka !

This was a lovely place to stop. It was very reasonably priced considering the quality of the hotel. It had a heap of in hotel facilities including a coin laundry setup on the 2nd floor. The bidet was the fanciest one yet (haha!) And overall, very clean and comfortable. Awesome location as well. Easy walk to the station and to Dotonbori Street. Would stay again!

We can't speak highly enough of this hotel, from check-in to check-out we had a amazing stay. Rooms are modern with comfy beds and the best toilet and waterfall shower. The staff are so friendly and helpful and the location is perfect. Shinsaibashi shopping arcade (so many great shops), Dotonbori (delicious food) and station only 10-15 minutes’ walk. The hotel is very modern and ecofriendly. We loved the breakfast, free coffee (espresso machine) and used the laundry facilities which were so convenient. It was our first trip to Osaka. Thank you so much for making it so memorable. We will definitely stay here again.

The staff were fantastic the whole time. The hotel is about a block from the train station and Shinsaibashi covered shopping street, so very centrally located. Dotonbori is a quick walk. Really, everything is a quick walk. The rooms are larger than expected and very clean. Staff were able to get me 2 rooms to accommodate the four of us. Breakfast in the morning should not be missed! It is worth every penny. The staff here are very helpful in every way. The laundry machines are a great feature. We also made regular use of the filtered water station and espresso machine in-hotel.

What a gem! Hands down, this was the best hotel we stayed in during our 10 days in Japan. After a long travel day, we arrived at the hotel and were so impressed. The rooms are a great size, the bathroom is incredible (waterfall shower, anyone?), and the location can’t be beat. Just a quick walk to Dotonbori and surrounded by fun bars and great restaurants. We will be back!

Close to restaurants, shopping, and tourist areas. But also located on a quiet side street. The staff, especially Ms. Ishikawa, were very kind and helpful. Getting to and from the airport, just one stop on the train to Namba station and then the airport express. We will definitely stay with Hotel The Flag again.

I stayed here for 4 nights and booked 2 rooms. All staff are very nice and helpful. The rooms are clean. I left a laptop in the hotel and only noticed when I got on the plane. All staff members are very responsive. The staff helped to pack the laptop in a box and print all the required documents for courier. They kept sending me updates of the courier statues. I am truly grateful for their assistance. Thank you Rio san, Taeyeon san, Fuka san and all other colleagues who assisted.

Don’t expect anything from this place. This is a very basic hotel, tucked in a faceless street, with tiny shabby rooms and weird rules (always close the bathroom door! do not touch the air conditioner! do not flush toilet paper in the toilet!) the rating on Tripadvisor is obviously manipulated. I would never come here again. Tons of better options in the city…

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion with us. We are sorry that there were some aspects of your stay with us that you felt to be unsatisfactory. Regarding our rules, we ask all of our guests to close the door when they are taking a shower as our fire alarms can be activated by hot steam. Also, although you are free to change the air conditioner's settings, we do have an advisory about hanging clothes off of the air conditioner as it can cause damage. Finally, there may have been a misunderstanding about the toilet paper, as we ask our guests to throw it in the toilet and not in the garbage bin. We apologize for not being able to meet your expectations when it comes to our facilities or location as well. We hope that you had an enjoyable time in Osaka otherwise. Thank you for your review.

This is a great hotel - within 5 minutes to Shinsaibashi station and shopping street, easy walking distance to Dotonbori (or even to Namba), and well designed and equipped. I loved the pine scent at the lobby (which many other 4-star hotels do not have for their Christmas season). One feedback is that the wifi signal was weak and kept dropping off (I was on the 8th floor).
