We booked this hotel mainly for the price as there are numerous hotels in the Namba area. We didn't do the breakfast option but if you want a basic Western style breakfast, there is a very cheap cafe next door to the hotel. Hotel is easy walking distance from the subway, Dotonbori and Amerimura as well as the large shopping arcades. The room was small, as usual in Japan, with the queen size bed up against the wall along one side. Only one bed side light. No bath but a good shower with separate toilet. We liked the supplied pyjamas/lounging wear. Not sure of their exact use but we saw a person wearing them outside while having a cigarette. Could be worn in bed though. There is a Foodium near by where supplies can be bought and the post office is also close to the hotel. This was the only hotel we stayed in that provided coffee as well as green tea. Didn't use the natural hot spring which is located on the second floor so I'm not sure how natural it is! Staff had some English and were able to provide a basic photo copied map.
Our only problem was the address! We arrived by train in the evening and asked a taxi driver to take us to the hotel as our google map wasn't being specific enough. Taxi driver just laughed so we asked at a Family Mart opposite the subway exit. Staff were also unsure but looked it up and provided directions. If only we had known it was just straight up the road! Addresses can be a bit confusing in Japan and it appeared that the address we were trying locate was the street alongside the hotel and not just the main road out the front. Took us down some unexpected streets. Ut we arrived in the end.
