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.

First off, I believe most hotel rooms in Japan are small, similar to large cities in Europe or New York. But it seemed that the room here was even smaller. Maybe it was the configuration? Anyways, we had no place to really open our luggages. We had to stack them on one another. Other than the room, I’d avoid the breakfast buffet. Maybe choose it for one day because it’s the same food everyday. No changes the 5 days we were there. Staff were friendly when approached. The main reason why we chose this hotel was due to proximity to Dotonbori area. It was literally less than 500 steps from the hotel’s entrance. We spent almost all of our time around Osaka & Kyoto. If you need a place to just sleep and you’re priority is about location then this is a solid option. But if you’re looking for a little more amenities & space this isn’t probably the right place for you.

It is a nice hotel located at Nippombashi area. It us very convenient to Kuromon market, Dotonburi, and only few stations away to Namba station and few more to Umeda station. Personally like this hotel for its location, but facilities like DIY laundry needs to improve like having more washing machines at different levels. Only 3 machines serving so many guests, 1 night I have to wash around 11.30pm. Also, the breakfast counter needs some changes on a daily basis. Imagine you stayed 4 nights and everyday eating the same food. Otherwise, the hotel staffs are friendly and helpful.

The hotel is located close to Dotonbori but several subway stops from Osaka and Shin Osaka stations. For those with a JR Pass, JR Namba station is a 15-20 minute walk or a subway ride away. So, the location is convenient to visit Dotonbori or Nara but less so to visit Kyoto or Himeji (or use the Shinkansen). The room was clean and modern but compact and there was limited space to put clothes (a hanging rail but no drawers). The room had a kettle, fridge, and air purifier. There were free amenities (coffee sachets, tea bags, toiletries) on a trolley in the lobby area. There were vending machines and microwaves located off the lobby. The front desk provided free luggage storage on check out.

Great location, one block away from the river, near the famous bridge with bright signs around. Hotel room is very small, and the beds are not the most comfy, Ac, even though it's central, works well. Facility includes vending machines, microwaves and laundry. Breakfast buffet is very complete with Japanese and western options.

This hotel is in a very convenient location when visiting Dotonburi, Kuromon Street, Sennichimae Street or Round One SpoCha. All of these are within minutes of walking. The Nipponbashi station Exit #6 is extremely close to this hotel, maybe 1 to 2 minutes at most. Nipponbashi is not a huge station but is large. From this station you can get to any other train or subway station. The much larger Namba station is one stop away. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. English is spoken by the Front Desk Staff. They can provide a map in english of the immediate area and train directions for attractions farther away. Breakfast at the hotel is a good option as breakfast is not available in many areas around the hotel. Lots of food options close by but they do not open till 10 or 11 a.m. Several convenience stores also within 2 minues from the hotel. Food, drinks and other amenities available 24 hours a day there. This is a busy city area, full of people going about their lives. Lots of things to do and see for locals and visitors alike. The rooms are small. If you have very large bags you may find it difficult to store them in your room. I think 2 adult persons per room is maximum. If the 3rd person mens a 3rd bed then its tight. The Hotel was clean. Staff were very helpful. Location was fine. We would stay again.

i love the hotel because we can just go to and fro to dotonbori where you can taste the sumptous street foodi. I tasted the kobe beef which was so softe it melts in the mouth. It is also near the market where you can buy delicious food of Osaka. I tasted the sweet fuji apple, sweet huge strawberries and saw huge crabs. The rom was cleaned daily and room amenities were restocked daily too. The service crew were kind in assisting us.

Stayed in Room 1420, a Triple Non-Smoking Room. PROS: Location was awesome - less than a block away from Dotonbori. The room was clean and the Wifi was strong. One of our beds was a sofa bed, but felt comfortable. It was nice to have a refrigerator in the room and free pajamas to wear. Free oolong tea, coffee, and orange juice offered on the 1st floor from 11am to 9pm. Use the Namba Walk (underground shopping center) to get from Nipponbashi Station near the hotel to JR Namba Station. CONS: Staff were strict on check-in time at 3pm, but willing to hold your luggage so you can go out while waiting to check in. Check-out time was relatively early, in my opinion, at 10am. It was difficult to step into the bathtub to shower because it was pretty tall. The view from our room was of some love hotels, if that interests you. Guests tend to hoard the free amenities offered in the lobby so there were a few times when items were out of stock. I guess if you have to grab them while you can!

Compact modern Rooms, centrally located to Dotonburi and the Markets. Good room commodities to include comfy PJs (!) but very small bathrooms that didn’t smell very fresh during our stay-might have been as they were doing building work. But still a great convenient base from which to site see. For those wanting to use them - Laundry facilities available and well priced and fast but the drying facilities didn’t work well at all.

We stayed for 6 nights 7 days in this hotel. So, here are the things I like: 1. Perfect location- it's in the heart of doutonbori and close to practically everywhere! 2. Since the location is great, we got to save money and energy. We don't need to travel far to get to the places we planned to see. 3. The front desk are so helpful, especially in giving directions. 4. Check In and Out are such a breeze. Now for the things I don't like: Hard Pillows Not So Soft Bed A little dusty room I would say the room is too small but this is Japan, alright?
