Shin-Osaka Station Hotel
Ranked #98 of 339 Hotels / Ryokan in Osaka
Reviewed 28 May 2014

This hotel is excellent value and is very well located for the Shin Osaka station. We stayed only 2 nights but would have been happy to stay longer. Eating around the hotel was easy and cheap and convenient.The staff were friendly, spoke English and everything was simple for us foreigners. The Japanese breakfast was interesting and acceptable, if a little formulaic.
We travelled into Osaka on our rail passes and get very used to the short commute to Osaka and its multiple JR and subway stations.
For a simple and quick transit through Shin Osaka at a very agreeable price I can certainly recommend this hotel

Thank you for your stay at Shin Osaka station hotel honkan.
We were very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay here.
Our hotel is 5 minutes walk from Shin Osaka station east gate, and from Shin Osaka station,
you can take both JR and subway.
So, it is very convenient for the guests if they plan to go to not only Osaka but also Kyoto or Nara.
Thank you again for your comment.
We are looking forward to seeing you again someday.

Don't be fooled to get to the domtombori acarade you have to catch the train. We thought it would be the heart of osaka but it's not. Breakfast was more designed for the Japanese rather than westerners, not worth the extra money

Thank you for your stay at Shin Osaka station hotel honkan.
Shin Osaka is not a downtown, so it is true that some guests feel in convenient about the place of our hotel. If you take a train from Shin Osaka station, you can go to Osaka or Namba, the center of the city easily, so we always offer the guests to go to the next station, Osaka station for shopping or having dinner.
We are sorry to hear that you could not enjoy the breakfast.
We will try to improve our breakfast so that all our guests will be able to enjoy it.
Thank you again for your comment.

We stayed here for 5 nights, and for some reason this hotel stay was the most memorable of all during our recent Japan trip, which included 3 other hotels. It's a combination of many things that make this such a great little place to stay. Friendly staff, clean and comfy (but tiny) bedrooms, excellent location, great value to name a few. When you arrive at Shin Osaka station by train, go to the East Exit and use the elevator, then head right following the signage outside the exit. Breakfast was good, but skip the western and go for japanese instead. We couldn't receive WiFi signal from the room, but there's a nice cozy spot at the lobby for this. The laundry machines are excellent which really helps when you're traveling with kids. You can also help yourself to the hot towels (with menthol fragrance) and hot green tea at the lobby which is super nice especially when you've been out and about for hours during a cold day.

Our room faced the train tracks, and initially the noise bothered us a little but after a couple of nights you get used to it. The windows are double glazed so when you shut them it's not too bad. We will definitely choose to stay here again when we return to Osaka in future.

Tip: If you need to withdraw cash, head to the nearby 7-Eleven behind the hotel where they've got an International ATM machine. We also found that the 7-Eleven stocked a wider variety of pre-packed bento meals which were absolutely delicious (and cheap)!!! Alternatively, there are also a number of nice little restaurants at the station.

This is a review of the Shin Osaka Station Hotel Honkan - you need the final word to distinguish this from the adjacent Annex building. The hotel is a 10 minute walk out the East Exit of Shin Osaka Station, and there are several direction signs to the hotel at the East Exit.
The single room is absolutely identical to that found all other business hotels in Japan - perhaps just a bit wider. The unexpected perks: wireless internet is quite strong and can be picked up in both the lobby and the room; and the very tasty buffet breakfast (included in my package). The Western and Japanese breakfasts are end to end in a line at the counter, and a server will make you fresh toast. Scrambled eggs, little hot dog/sausages, fruit cocktail, yogurt, salad and coffee or tea. The coffee in Japan can be superb, and this hotel has the touch. If only I could find a hotel in the US that could offer this great coffee in their breakfast buffet. The Shin Osaka Station Hotel is a comfortable, moderate priced option when visiting Osaka.

My wife and I spent two nights at this hotel during a recent trip to Japan. Everything was very cramped and small, but the service and amenities were excellent. Actually everything was provided or we just had to ask. Breakfast was also provided, which was a choice between Japanese or European. Whoever decided what should be on the european menu, obviously has not travelled in a European country. It was not very appetising, but certainly adequate. As in all Japanese hotels, the service was fantastic. Access to rail transport and restaurants was very good.

Room Tip: Probably all the same cramped conditions

Stayed at this hotel mainly because of the location.

However, I do have to add the room is super small. We took a twin sharing room and because there were 2 single beds, it became a 1 way street for us each time we need to walk across the room. There isn't much space left after opening up our luggages. The breakfast is very boring, being the same every day. If staying for just 1 to 2 nights, then the breakfast would sound great. But after staying for 5 nights, we had enough. The only consolation is defintely it's location, being very convenient because it's near Shin Osaka Station. Will try to look for some other hotels when we visit Osaka again.

Thank you for your comments and sorry for the small room.
If you book economy-twin room, one bed is semi-double bed, but the other one is extra bed or sofa bed.
Also, the room size is 16sqm and we mainly use the room as a single room, but we put two beds and sell as a economy-twin room with more reasonable price.
We are sorry about the inconvenience.
As for the breakfast, we are trying improve to the menu now.
If you have a chance to come to our hotel next time, we hope you will enjoy your stay at our hotel.

We only stayed 1 night before our flight out of Japan and it was perfect for it. We travelled from Hokkaido by train so arrived at around 11pm which was no problem for check in. The room was clean and comfortable and the train noise was minimal even though its right next to the tracks. The station is about a 5 minute walk away and the hotel was visible from the station but a walk-over bridge was the only route we could find which meant dragging very heavy suitcases and snowboards bags over it. The hotel was super cheap and was everything we needed.

Thank you for your stay at Shin Osaka station hotel honkan.
We are glad to have your comment of your stay.
If you use east exit, you don't have to cross the bridge. You can use the elevator as well.
It takes about 5 miniutes on foot, so it is very convenient for the guests who use the bullet train.
If you have chance to come to Japan again, please stay at our hotel again.
We are looking forward to your next stay.
