“beside subway station”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

The hotel somehow far from busy city center is close to many restaurants as well, 24H McDonald. Do not miss the Rikuro confectionery with its most delicious cakes and sweets, and free coffee at a very calm atmosphere with a few tables outside and some inside. Good place for kids to see how the cakes are made. The staff are very kind. Even for breakfast you may go there from 8:00. The hotel breakfast is so much Japanese with few choices if you are NOT a fan of Japanese breakfast.

No value for money at all. The location is terrible--its in a run down mall on the last stop on the Yamamoto line (blue anyway). The first room we were given was "non-smoking" but smelled horrendous. The second room we were given was actually "non-smoking", but that was the end of the positives. It was incredibly hot, even with the heat completely off, and we tried sleeping with the window open, but the noise from the traffic below was too loud. The bed was unbelievably uncomfortable, neither my husband nor I could sleep. There were no blackout blinds, so when the sun came up at 6ish it was directly in your eyes. The room was clean, but the decor was ugly and old. Everything about the hotel was tired. It's wasn't very expensive, but it was far overpriced for what we paid. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

This hotel is inside a shopping mall called Osker Dream, at the 9th floor. It is NOT in the city center but I should say that didn't bother me. There is Suminokoen Metro Station just outside the mall. It's a very quite area and only a few stops away (about 15-20 minutes) from Namba station. From there you can take the Nankai Express train to go to Kansai Airport (about 45 minutes). I stayed in a single room, very spacious considering japanese standards and with a comfortable bed that it looked to me more a double than a single! There is no wifi at the hotel but there is a LAN cable in the room. I had a laptop and I can say it was perfectly working and internet connection was very good and fast. I read in some comments the cable was not working, this is why I'm pointing this out... My room was on a 16th floor and had a very big window, that was nice! Over all I was very happy with the hotel, however, breakfast, that was included in the price, was disapointing. According to them it's a mixt between japanese/western breakfast.... But the only western food they had it was bread & butter... This might only be an inconvenient for me since I need sthing sweet and fruit for breakfast and I couldn't find it there but it's true there was plenty of japanese food and as I said everything else was great.

The hotel was very comfortable and the staff were friendly. Reasonably priced. Although its not in the center of Osaka the Subway and Tram are very accessible. The hotel sells USJ 1 day pass for 5,800 yen ( normally 6,400) which is quite a good deal.

The hotel is far from the main shopping district of Namba but there is a subway stop just around the corner so it was no problem getting around. The tram stop is connected to the mall where the hotel is located and will take you to the Aquarium area, Harbor Town. The free breakfast daily is the same everyday but enough. The hotel offers free washing machines (100 yen for dryers), lots of vending machines, free use of massage chairs and 2 computers in the lobby area plus free wired internet. Not bad for the 9,900 yen for a twin sharing room with 2 full size beds. Wish they would provide airport shuttle service tho. There was also a really good Yakiniku restaurant around the corner (behind the hotel parking lot) that served really great meat (sagagyu). There was a MacDonald's 2 blocks away, Yoshinoya and a Family Mart/Daily Yamazaki grocery. The Daiso (100 yen store) in the same building was a great plus too for snacks and water.

Room Tip: The standard twin rooms were a good size for 2 adults. The beds are full sized and the toiletries ar...

This hotel is out in the sticks a bit, but we didn’t mind that as we had the subway and the new tram line right at the front door. So you need to travel quite a few stops to get into Osaka city. It’s a bit of a weird set up. A small shopping mall – called “Osker Dream” – with a huge 100YEN shop, a gym, some restaurants and a lot of old closed shops, and you take the lift to the 8th floor to get to the reception of the hotel. We booked non-smoking rooms, but got smoking rooms – which they fixed up on the second night for us. Breakfast was good and plentiful with both western and Japanese options and a high chair for my son. It’s a very old hotel that could do with some updating – however rooms are very large for Japanese standards. There are free washing machines and free massage chairs on level 10. Staff were very nice, and looked after us well. We got a really cheap rate – I wouldn’t stay here again unless the rate was great. I'd recommend staying within walking distance of Dotonbori.
