We arrived at the Dotonbori Hotel and were warmly welcomed, they even gave us a gift as they knew it was our wedding anniversary. The standard double room was quiet, clean and tidy. The room had aircon and as with most rooms in Japan it was a little on the small side compared to UK rooms, but we did not plan to sit in our room much so this was fine. The hotel was ideally located in Dotonbori just off the main shopping street in the middle of Osaka. It is situated 5-10 minutes walk from Namba and JR Namba train stations. Note, all the books plug the aquarium; we did it and agree it was excellent! There were lots of little streets with small cafés and restaurants in the area which reminded us a little of Amsterdam, probably the canals running around the city. Even though this is not a large hotel they really looked after us and there were lots of extra toiletries in the bathroom eg. brushes, toothbrushes, gels etc. There were ice and vending machines on most floors if you need anything extra. The hotel front is unique with big statues and so easy to find, the lobby had all kinds of extras. Sounds a bit quirky but it was nice to have, everything from massage chairs, free tea and coffee and a candy floss machine, a games console and best of all they gave a free 5 minute international call to each of us so we could inform family we had arrived OK. Breakfast was a mixture of Japanese and western food in a buffet style. It was adequate and there was probably something there for everyone.
If you aren’t after a large room to relax in but more a go out and see the town kind of place to stay this is ideal.
