Went to Osaka in August. All rooms near Shinsaibashi District were booked! After checking out Tripadvisor and Agoda for other deals, we ended up with Daiwa Roynet Hotel.
Daiwa Roynet is basically a decent modern hotel in a good location. It is located about 4 stops from Shinsaibashi. We spent about JPY 400 every day for roundtrip train tickets but the savings in the hotel room price compensated. There was a grocery, a convenience store, a pachinko parlor and a Mossburger store in the vicinity. I also noticed a meat shop that sold Wagyu steak which can be packed in airplane-friendly packaging.
The Daiwa Roynet is new. So the interiors and general atmosphere of the hotel lobby and hallways are noteworthy. It is not sexy, but it is clean and basic. The rooms are a bit bigger than other Japanese hotels. I was actually quite impressed with the bathroom as it was considerably larger and more western in size compared to other similarly priced hotels I’ve stayed in Japan. The room color and design were basic. There was a TV, ref, a study desk and an ironing board in the closet. So they probably put some more thought in the hotel design.
Staff service was fairly ok. There were also check-out machines at the reception which were quite interesting.
I would stay here again for the fairly ok accommodation, but only if the hotels in Shinsaibashi are again fully booked.
