My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in January 2017. Our room was small and cozy and it was a bit dated but at least it was clean. What was great about this hotel besides the location, was that it had so many extras included with your stay. During our stay, there was free ramen served at 10:30pm...

Nice hotel, clean, small size room with nice toiletries, small TV, fridge etc. Very local to main Dontonbori area. Free ramen and beer was great but too crowded to enjoy, always a lot of people hanging around the hotel from different conferences. Overall hotel seemed a little dated, but staff were nice and was great value for money considering the...

Great hotel! They checked us in 4 hours earlier for free. Dressed my daughter in kimono (they had kimono day). Lounge area with computers and free coffee. Location - 2 minutes walk to Glico Man sign. I can go on and on and on. I highly recommend this hotel and will stay here again.

Great hotel with many random things in it e.g free massage chairs. Was in a fantastic location with access to many different bars/restaurant and shopping. The bathroom is quiet small though. There was a laundry and the wifi was really good too.

The best thing about this place is the location. You can walk 500m up the road and you get all the awesome street food, restaurants, and bars. The room was simple, but clean and had everything I needed. Staff spoke English well and were helpful.

Very good location, about 5 mins walk to Namba subway stn, right in the middle of shopping area shinsaibashi. Hotel staff were very helpful and efficient. Free coffee and food were provided at the hotel lobby for supper. One of their staff Mr Bir Bal was very helpful when we encountered some problems. Highly recommended hotel if you're visiting Osaka!
