OMG the location it´s just right above the Namba subway station, don´t forget to get out on exit 6. The room is spacious comparing to what we had in Kyoto. We did a half style of Japanese tatami, it was comfortable, loved their pillows Staff were very helpful without even asking, anticipate the guest needs. As we arrived earlier, we...

Superb location. Hotel is diagonally opposite Takashimaya and linked to Namba Sunway. Take exit 6 and you will find yourself right outside the hotel. If you have luggages with you , I'll suggest that you take exit 5 as there's an escalator to bring you up as exit 6 only has stairs. As the hotel is located in Namba, you...

From the outside the hotel looks very conventional and unexciting but inside it's a different matter altogether. The decor is stylish and beautiful and the rooms lovely. I really liked the raised platform surrounded by screens on which the futon was situated. It was remarkably quiet, considering the chaos, which is Osaka, just outside. The restaurant has great views. It...

My stay here, though only lasting one night (it's very popular), was really memorable. The room was huge with traditional sliding doors and separate areas. I loved it - it felt both authentic and retro. Get breakfast in the room - it's great. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Large room, with interesting attractive decor. Small bathroom but clean and functional. Bed rolls were hard, may be possible to ask for a double roll as we got in a lot of other hotels. Not particularly quiet but that goes with the location.

We arrived late in the evening on the Kansai Rapit from the airport. The hotel is almost right outside the Kansai train station. The check-in was fast. The front desk was expecting us since it was a rather late arrival. The reception is on 8th floor and our room is on 7th floor. The hallway on the 7th floor is...
