This hotel was ok for what we paid. As expected it was still a small room with a double size bed pushed up against the wall. I had seen photos of another room with the bed away from the wall and thought that was what we were getting, but we were told that ALL the rooms were like that! But...

Because of a change in our flight schedule I booked The Lutheran at the last minute. The room size of 18 m2 was the largest of the 3 different hotels on this family trip of ours for Osaka and Kyoto. We were given our rooms ahead of the normal check-in time of 2 pm. The hoteI is well located, only...

This is a great hotel in a good location for a reasonable price. The staff were friendly (but didn't speak much English) and let us check in early. We were in a twin room. The room and bathroom were clean (lovely soaps!) and had a toilet with all the buttons!! Beds were quite hard but still comfortable. The hotel is...

Just had a one night stay and was very pleased with The Lutheran. Staff were very helpful and efficient, the room was quite large by Japanese standards, beds were firm but very comfortable and I had a great sleep. Can't comment on breakfast because we didn't eat there. Nice body wash, shampoo etc in the bathroom.

The Lutheran is showing signs of wear. It's a bit drab. The room sizes are not bad by Japanese standards. Each room has a bar fridge, which is convenient No water is supplied, but the staff say the tap water is drinkable. The hotel has laundry facilities, for which a charge is rendered. The Lutheran also has a bank of...

The hotel is basic but functional. Everything is in working order - the rooms, the restaurant, the staff. Very close to Osaka Castle and subway. People at the desk are very helpful in spite of limited English - although some speak better than others. But even the ones who do not try to do their best to help

The room is small, clean and functional, like many first class hotels in Japan. The Japanese breakfast is very good. The staffs are friendly, well qualified, helpful and English speaking. The hotel is near to the entrance of a subway station, but not really near to the subway station, since it is the far most entrance of the station.

No problems , no bad smells , a little mold in the corner of the bathtub but it appears to be under control. Two beds in a non-smoking room were waiting for us upon checking in. I would stay here again. It was a 2,500 yen taxi ride from the train station. Has a fridge and tv in the room...
