“Wonderful value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2010

We spent three nights at this marvellous superior three star hotel after having checked it out on Tripadvisor. The room was hardly large enough to swing a cat, but who wants to swing cats in hotel rooms? Apart from that everything was perfect. Spotless, amazingly well appointed - there isn't room to list all the ameneties offered with the room including slippers and kimonos and a tiny but well appointed bathroom - suffice to say that the guest wants for nothing. Breakfast is served in the lobby and offers a limited selection of Japanese and Western dishes - simple but enough to start the day on. We grew especially fond of the misu soup, especially since the weather was chilly. Whoever was on duty at reception never failed to provide answers to all our questions with a smile, a bow and thank-you. We continued our romance with this chain in Tokyo and I shall write a separate review about the Toyoko Inn - Asakusa Komagata which was no less accomodating. Both hotels are very reasonably priced and we managed to keep within the $ 100 per night limitation that we had set ourselves - we spend very little time in hotels when we are touring so only need a comfortable place to lay our heads and the Toyoko Inns certainly provided this. As for location, it is a short 10 minute walk from the Shin-Osaka train station with frequent connections to the 15 minute ride to Kyoto.

We stayed here mainly to visit Kyoto area (most kyoto hotels were full during that time). Shin-osaka station is only 15 mins away from Kyoto by Shinkansen.

We have stayed in a number of Toyoko-inn in Japan. This one is no different. It offers the same good level of service , same type of room and amenities. So there is no complaints.

Toyoko-Inn's selling point has always been affordability with relatively good quality (AND FREE INTERENET). You won't get luxury amenities, but you won't get any bad surprises either.

In this case, all I needed was to stay at a transport hub close to Kyoto. So this was a perfect stay.

Shin-Osaka has nothing much to see. There are some shops at Shin-osaka station. We visited Kyoto during the stay and then came back to Shin-osaka at night.


For its price, I think toyoto-inn offers the best level of service, quality. When travelling to any locations in Japan, Toyoko inn is always my default choice. If I can find something better or nicer, sure, if not, I'll go to toyoko-inn because I know I won't go wrong with it :P

Stayed in Shin-Osaka Chuo-guchi Shinkan, Honkan is next door but I think Shinkan is the newer one (however i believe they look the same and has the same standards - all toyoko inns are quite similar).


The walk to the hotel from shin osaka station is around 10. Not too far. Its rather quiet at night but feels safe. Several times we got back around 11pm and still felt really safe for two females.

Not much to do in shin osaka - however the benefit is that its one of the big interchange stations. If you need to plan your trip.. there is s tourist information centre at the station. There is also two JR pass office so if you need to reserve your seats with the JR Pass, this is the station to do it. There is also many, many stalls selling bento's and food souvenirs and is relatively quite busy.

Very little restaurants around so eat before you come back to the hotel. But there are drink vending machines and convenience store (at the station) as well as many food stores.

Very clean room. Small but sufficient. Staff (depending on who you get) speaks and understand very little english. There are two computers with free internet in the foyer.

Breakfast is included in the price of the room. Had different flavoured rice triangles every day - it was plain but very yummy. Also had miso soup and coffee.

If you are thinking of travelling to kyoto, this is probably the station you want to stay in.

  • Liked — breakfast, cleaniness, major interchange station so was convenient
  • Disliked — nothing really to do in shin osaka
