The hotel is incredibly convenient to the places you're likely to hit while in Osaka. However, the rooms are somewhat old and the amenities could have been better. The bathroom feels cheap. Overall, somewhat of a letdown after seeing the exterior and hotel lobby.

It's all about the location. Right beside the bus station from the airport, small grocery at the basement, lots of small restaurants in the basement walk, a few meters away from the train station and a few minutes walk to Shinsaibashi and Dontonburi areas.

Other pluses include: rooms are a bit larger than the other hotels, small chapel in the lobby which makes Sunday mass very convenient, and wifi access everywhere.

Would I stay again? I definitely would.

Would I recommend to friends visiting Osaka? Already have.

We stayed in this hotel from Nov 8-14. The hotel is located just right on top of JR-Namba station. It is conveniently located a few blocks away from the Dotonbori-Shinsaibashi area, Kuromon Market, and Den-den town. The reception staff will give you a walking tour map with a train lines map right behind it. If you find the aforementioned areas too far though, there is a supermarket right underneath the hotel, and also the OCAT shopping mall. If you want more choices, Namba Walk is just a few minutes away as well.

If you intend to explore the rest of the Kansai area, this hotel is a great home base. It is about an hour away from both Nara and Kyoto. Nara can be reached directly through the JR Yamatoji Line. If you're going to Kyoto you may need to transfer a bit, but this shouldn't take too long.

The staff is helpful but as always, they have a hard time communicating in English. It is much easier to understand directions if you ask in Japanese. If you have an address or certain location you want to go to, you may be better off writing it down or getting a brochure or something, pointing it to one of the staff and perhaps asking them to draw the directions.

Our room was a bit small, but big enough I guess to fit three beds. I had a good night's sleep, and you can ask for extra pillows if you need them. Pajamas area also provided. There is no gym nor spa, but perhaps the walk around shopping and sightseeing would be enough exercise? ;) If you did not get the buffet breakfast package with your room (we didn't), you can always just go to Namba Walk or the convenience stores nearby for breakfast.

I'm giving this hotel four stars just because it is a bit small relative to the other hotel we stayed in Tokyo, even though the price on that one was just only a bit higher than Grasmere. I think I expected more. But this is good enough anyway. :)

Hotel Monterey Grasmere, Osaka is conveniently located a few steps away from the subway. If you're commuting to kansai international airport, it's a few minutes away from the namba station which will pass through tennoji station where the trains going to the airport are. It has a huge grocery situated at the basement. Spacious rooms and the staffs can provide you with directions to go around, all you have to do is inquire. My only concern is that the lighting of the entire hotel is a tad dark, gives a bit of an eerie feeling. But then perhaps it's just me. :)

Other than that, I'll definitely stay here again. :)

Will defiinitely stay in this hotel again! Centrally located yet affordable. Thumbs up when it comes to value for money. There's a grocery situated at the basement of the hotel which makes it easier for me to buy some stuff.

It very well located. You can reach the hotel by taking the OCAT bus, sign number 11, As you exit, turn to your right and buy the tickets at the vending machines, it costs 1000 yen. The trip will take 50 min approximately. The bus has only one stop at OCAT Namba . Once you arrive take the stairs one floor u, and find the real tree store , go through that hallway till you exit the building turn right and the hotel building is a 1 minute walk from there. The reception is on the 22nd floor of the building.

The receptionists were very kind at check in and check out.We stayed on the 31st floor, we reserved a standard twin room , the room size was bigger than I expected considering it is a Japanese hotel, everything was very clean, the room had nice views. You have to pay upfront the reservation at check in.

The Namba walk is right out in front of the hotel. It is an underground passageway with different exits to Namba and Dotombori,Kuromon market, the kintetsu Nara Line, and subway.

The Namba Station is just a 15 walk from the hotel, and the JR Namba is just turning left as you exit the hotel.

it is a good, practical place to stay, specially if you are traveling with children.
