Hotel Chuo Oasis Osaka

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2014

we chose to stay in a Japanese style room with tatami and futon, it was better than the photos provided in website, the room was spacious, with warm futon to sleep in. all of us were quite satisfied with the room!^^.
location is good, close to subway station and a few more minutes to JR station and Nankai line stations. Plenty of convenience stores nearby and we even walked back from Shinsekai one night...
you may consider this hotel if you wish to experience the japanese style tatami (simpler way without great meals) while ryokan is more expensive to stay...

Room Tip: the japanese style room is more spacious than the modern western style...

The main assets of the hotel are location and price: two minutes from Doubutsuenmae station and near to JR and Nankai Stations. It is extremely easy to get there using the map provided on the hotel website and googling the location on google satellite before. Nearby there are plenty of Seven Eleven, Family Mart etc and an arcade where there is an even cheaper supermarket where you can get ready meals for less than 1000 Yen. As someone already said on this website, the area is undobtedly desolate: do not expect happy Japanese families but mainly drunkards. They do not create any problem at all, but the atmosphere is really bleak. The room is small: there is a table, frigor and television with only Japanese programs. Mine was on the second floor and wifi was working, but the reception staff informs that during peak hours wifi is slow. The neon light was for me very annoying. There is no table light and the central neon light was too strong. At the end, I moved a little bit the bed and switched on the neon light at the entrance which was less strong. The bathroom is the usual one in Japanese business hotels with foam soap and shampoo dispensers plus toothbrush. Cleaning is made twice a week upon request. You can also request change of towels. The window is small and the window glass is reeded, this gives a sort of claustrophobic feeling. Anyway my review is positive. I would not recommend this place for long stays, also because there is no wardrobe but only three hangers. The room is not a place you look forward to spending your time, but if you plan to visit places and stay outside most of the time, it is fine and, personally, I will return. One guy at the reception was proficient in English, the others so and so. On the first floor near the reception there are free coffee and tea, computers, microwave and other cooking facilities. My stay is very recent so if you need any further detail, please contact me.

Stayed in this hotel in early April for 8 days. Price is good comparatively. Next to subway station. However, area is not 'high class' but it is safe. Unfortunately, some loud tenants disturbed us a couple of nights. No restaurant. Wifi access Is good if your room is located near modem.

The hotel is located near Shinimamiya JR station and takes about an hour by train from Kansai Airport. It takes about 5 ~ 7 minutes walk from the station to there, but only if you look up the map before hand. It can be hard to find at night and GPS is not very accurate around the area. It is located in a old suburb and very dark and quiet at night. It is fine for man, but if you are female, you mean want to be cautious, even Japan is generally safe.

Some hotel staff can speak pretty good English, so communicating with them in English should be fine. The room is small but sufficient space for one person; it has a single bed (not King size), small table and a small bath / toilet compartment. For the low price, it's provides pretty good value.

The two main complaints I had is the toilet seat and the building neon light issue. First, the toilet bowl has a modern auto-wash-you-bum upgrade, but it doesn't fit the toilet bowl probably. So occasionally you will touch the toilet bowl which feels very pleasant (note: this should only applies to man only, and should give you enough information about which part of body is touching the toilet bowl). The other issue is the decorative neon light outside of the hotel, it is very bright and the curtain doesn't cover the window completely. I believe the neon light is time control and switch off around 23 or 00 hour, but it is annoying if you try to sleep early.

If you are tight on budget, this is the best choice. But if you want to consider hotel around Namba or Shinsaibashi, which is where most actions are (shopping, pub, restaurant)
I stayed here for 3 nights from 21 Jan 2013 to 24 Jan 2013

The main business for this establishment is seemingly is being a hotel, but there is also dorm rooms and I stayed in one of those for four people. There were never that many though, we toped at being 2 which can be nicely quieter than a full room. It could be a little difficult to find this place but it is a very common tourist location as I understood so you'll find fellow travelers to help you find your ways.
There is no common area of the words rightful meaning, there is a small kitchen and a table for ten in the lobby but I got the feeling that it was rarely used. The upside though is that there is a pretty big coin laundry there as well with many washers and dryers!
There is two train stations om the Osaka Loop line nearby to choose from and it is fairly easy to get from Shin Osaka, the bullet trains station, to this location.

Good: Location, big room with good price

Drawback: bed sheet and blanket are old and not that clean

======================================
Room stayed: Twin Room Western style (non-smoking, 21~22m-square, attached bathroom)

Room rate: 5600yen (weekday) 6600yen (weekend)

Location: Within 5mins from Subway Dobutsuenmae station Exit 2; 10~15mins to JR Shinimamiya station; 20mins to Nankai Shinimamiya station. Convenience shops and eateries are around the area.

Collaboration Shops: Family Mart/100yen Flet’s Tashi branch (5-10mins walking distance, the 2 shops are next to each other), you can get 10% cash rebate from the hotel. Show shopkeeper your room key and they will stamp on the receipt. Pass the receipt to front desk staff to get your cash rebate. Not very sure if min expense is required.

Front desk staffs: They had served a lot of guests around the world, so English communication is not an issue. They are helpful and friendly. The hotel has a Facebook webpage. Fast response (in English) through the FB message, nice!

Room condition: Simple but big. Everything is quite well maintained. Sufficient lighting. However, bathroom is small.

Toiletries/amenities: Toothbrush/paste, shampoos, hair dryer, fridge are provided. In-room slippers are disposable type. No safe in the room. Complimentary drinking water is provided. Kettle with hot water is beside the front desk. Free hot tea/coffee is provided during breakfast time, besides the front desk as well. Small pantry/kitchen (with microwave/oven and kitchen utensils) and coin-operated laundry machines are at ground floor. Free lockers for small luggage are at lobby opposite the front desk (for big luggage, staff will help to keep in their office).

Internet: Free WIFI at the whole hotel entity.

This should be the 2nd best hotel under Hotel Chuo Group (6 budget hotels all located at the same area). I am not extreme budget traveler; definitely this will be my choice as compared with Hotel Taiyo that I stayed at the same area last year. I may try the best under the group for my next Kansai trip, Hotel Chuo Selene.

This hotel is nice enough. The rooms are simple, but good enough. The service is quite good. There is free coffee and tea. A nice relaxing foyer to walk into, plenty of computers down stairs and wifi. The rooms are just clean, no frills, place to sleep and a decent down stairs areas that makes you feel nice when you get home. The area itself is convenient for the train stations, but I don't recommend walking around the area so much. It's not dangerous, but just not really pleasant, with it being a nicer hotel, in a generally poor area. If you can put up with the odd homeless looking person walking outside, this is a real bargain.
