“Best night in Osaka”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

Me and my friend stayed in the guesthouse for a night, and really enjoyed it. Guesthouse U-En boasts a very friendly and comfortable atmosphere for those who wish to relax after the day's travels in the spacious guest room, complete with a large kotatsu (table with a warmer) which is a lifesaver for the cold days. The tatami rooms are spacious, albeit with quite a low ceiling, but very cosy and well insulated. The staff members are extremely lovely, friendly and extremely helpful. The guesthouse also has a very beautiful and colorful interior, due to a recent renovation.

If there was any minor complaints, other guests might be quite loud past bedtime and it would also be the location; but there are stations require about 10-15 minute walk. However it is close to the Umeda area which has a large underground shopping complex and great local choices of local eateries (there is an excellent Takoyaki shop very close to the guesthouse) and nearby convenience stores. I highly recommend the guesthouse for anyone looking for an affordable, relaxed stay to walk around Central Osaka or to meet fellow guests !
