Rooms are a bit small but compensate by close proximity to Namba station. Hotel is right in Den Den town so if you are into electronics, toys, manga etc, this is the right place to stay. Other than that, they give you free drinks (self service) which is always nice. Check in is very strict which starts only at 3pm.

Very clean hotel, free coffee, water and hot choco but rooms are small. A hard to find hotel especially if it's your first time. Rest in between shopping and going around osaka is hard to do because location is a bit far ( about 15 min. walk) from train station and from shopping area. But if you're into walking, the hotel is just fine.

We visited in October 2013. The hotel is not that easy to find after dark. It is about a 15 minute walk from Nanba station, which is fine if you travel light. Reception is not at ground level, but one level up which also makes it slightly more difficult to locate. But once there, it is well located for access to local restaurants and bars. It was much easier making our way back to the station the next morning. The map on the website is not easy to navigate, but the map provided at the hotel was much better.

Staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and put up with our poor Japanese. The reception area is spacious with a free drink corner - great for thirsty travellers.

We were upgraded to a larger room, which was a pleasant surprise. If you search carefully you'll find the internet connection. Images on their website are pretty accurate, although the room is showing signs of wear. It was very clean, compact but comfortable.

The restaurant at street level was perfect for breakfast. It was buffet style and cost approx. 500 yen per person. The food was more Japanese style than Western. If you were passing by with your dog, there is a special menu for your beloved pet.

As a very reasonably priced business hotel (one of the cheapest I could find in the area) it was great for the one night stopover we did. I would hesitate to stay there longer, particularly if we were in the regular room that we booked, as I can only imagine that it was extremely small.

Overall, a really good budget hotel.

Room Tip: Upgrade to larger room if you can afford it.

We booked a deluxe room with 1 single bed and 1 queen bed. It has wifi and there is free coffee and drink at second floor pantry.

There is also 2 washers and dryers to rent. 100 yen each time. We can also use the laundry items like hangers, washing powder and clothe pegs.

However, the room is very small for 3 persons. After we put down our luggage, there is not much space left.

The location is quite strategic and walking distance to Namba train station. There is also a convenient store downstairs.

Room Tip: Choose a bigger room

the hotel is ok (little old, but comfy rooms, small - even for japenese standarts), but breakfest is unacceptable (I have never had such terrible food in Japan), I wouldn't stay here again, location is fine
