“A pretty good hotel near kansai airport”
Reviewed 18 October 2010

The service at kanku hotel is pretty ok. Front staff speaks decent english. The room is clean and it provides basic ammenities. Although not very near to kansai airport, the hotel provides complimentary shuttle service every hour. There is also a jusco supermarket at aeon plaza which is about 7-8mins walk from the hotel.

For an airport hotel, we certainly didn’t expect much, but was pleasantly surprised on the contrary. The hotel was fairly easy to get to using the free shuttle bus from Kansai Airport; though somewhat infrequent, only one bus per hour, nevertheless it was a worry-free mode of transport.
On arrival, obviously because it wasn’t during peak season, we were offered an upgrade (from twin to double) for only extra ¥1000. Being a double, the room was therefore really spacious. It composed of large sleeping area with queen size bed and sitting area with a long couch, desk and TV, and a large bathroom. Overall, the room was spacious, clean and tidy.
The rate we paid also included a ¥1000 dining voucher that can be used towards a Viking (buffet) breakfast; food selection was somewhat small but very good quality. Bread, pastry, rice, and miso; pretty decent for a transit traveller.
The hotel is situated in a quiet and quaint neighbourhood, with small localities such as a takoyaki shop, few wine houses, a sushi restaurant, a convenience store, and a local shopping mall (AEON/Jusco); all in easy walking distance, and a great way to take in small dose of Japanese everyday culture.
Indeed not as convenient and grand but cost you an arm and a leg like Hotel Nikko, and price competitive but sleeps like a sardine as some smaller local hotels; Kanku Hineno Station Hotel offers a transit traveller a stay that balances price, comfort, and convenience. I’d give them a go again next time.

Hineno Station has one of the cheapest rates for a night's stay near the Osaka Kansei Airport (Kanku in short), as compared to other hotels of similar quality.

It is very conveniently located (20 mins to the airport) with a free shuttle that departs regularly enough. However, the free shuttle in the mornings do get very crowded and it would be wise to reserve in advance the night before.

While the hotel is meant for overnight stayers who have early morning flights or have arrived late at Kansei, it is pretty comfortable. The amenities are adequate and room is clean. However, it seems like the hotel has a poor control over customers who smoke in the non-smoking rooms. We requested for non-smoking rooms but in the end, we have to request for a change of room due to the pervasive cigarette smell. The change of room didn't help either but it was late into the night and we didn't pursue further.

Nevertheless, I would still recommend the hotel for cost-conscious travellers who expect a certain level of quality in their accommodation, and who do not mind cigarette smoke.

  • Liked — Location to airport and price
  • Disliked — Cigarette smell in non-smoking rooms and floors

If you are doing something in Hineno, or would like a hotel on the JR train line then it's good. This station gives access to trains headign to Wakayama, and also to Osaka.


If you don't have anything in the area though there's not much in Hineno except a Jusco so not worth staying.
Might be nice to stay the night before departure from Kansai airport, as you can get a free transfer to the airport in the morning.

Lobby is very nice, and there are complimentary buses to and from the aiport! Just ask the hotel staff for the information.
