Novotel Koshien Osaka West
Reviewed 10 May 2014 via mobile

This is a nice, clean hotel with friendly service and a pretty good breakfast buffet. It's about 15 minutes on the express train to Umeda station. Located in a residential neighborhood. There are local restaurants and shops within a 10 minute walk. We got this hotel on the cheap and it was totally worth it. This hotel in central Osaka would be triple the price. If you can get it at a cheap price, give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

Unlike the usual Japanese style (read: small) room, Novotel Koshien Osaka West's is very spacious.
The location is only 2-3 minutes away from the rail station, yet quiet in the evening.
Breakfast buffet selection is good, enough variety and healthy selections.
Had very good deal with Accor Advantage club rate.
The room also provides simple guide for the area (including Kobe area)
The crew were very helpful in arranging taxi and provide info for airport limo.

Room Tip: Get the room facing rail way. You get to see the city view.

breakfast and room size were good. had a non smoking room but there was smoking on my floor so it smelled. The pool and Gym were closed which were one of the reasons why I reserved there but could not used any and was not told until I got to the gym and realized it was closed. The proximity of the Koshien Station is nice but not on the JR line. Next door to Koshien Stadium. 15 minutes from Osaka or Kobe by train.

The crew is very helpful. It's a little too far from downtown Osaka, a 25 minute train ride, but close to the Koshien Baseball Stadium. Definitively not cheap, but worthy the price. The breakfast is distinguished, I loved it. Room is spacious, confortable and clean. I had a great time there.

I had a comfortable stay at the Novotel Koshien Osaka West hotel. It is only a 2 minutes walk from the Koshien (Hanshin) station. The room is very spacious, so is the bathroom, plenty of amenities were available for our usage for free, with the exception of the instant coffee found it the room.
I had intended to have dinner at one of the restaurant located on the ground floor of the hotel, but it was fully booked. Fortunately there was a Daiei shopping mall right beside the hotel. So i was able to settle my dinner outside. It would have been better if there was a Lawsons, 7-11 or a Family Mart nearby.
Though I would love to come back to this hotel and stay, it really is quite far from Umeda station.

You have to be careful because on the web site, it is mentionned that you can access the hotel by Limousine bus. this is not true if you arrive or leave from kansai airport. From the htel, you first have to take the train and then the Limousine Bus. This is not very convenient.
The restaurant (buffet and breakfast) is passable.
