Hotel Il Cuore Namba
Ranked #71 of 322 Hotels / Ryokan in Osaka
Reviewed 10 August 2014

Although the mattresses were a bit hard, we (a family of 4) enjoyed our 3 nights very much. The hotel is clean, nicely decorated with all the amenities you need for a city-hotel. Of course the room is not that big, but so is the price and we didn't care since we spend most time outside the hotel. We didn't take the breakfast, but instead enjoyed either a big breakfast (and more expensive) in the Swissôtel around the corner or a quick croissant and cappuccino in a small coffeeshop at Namba-station. The location is great for transportation, shopping and dining.
The reception staff speaks very little english but is generally friendly. Except when we checked in, one of the members got irritated when I didn't understand that I had to fill in the registration form with 4 passport numbers.

Paying 4000 yens for 4 nights for the best location ever at an unbeatable price. Hotel is 3 minutes away from the main JR station, 10-15 minutes from the main attractions such as shindaibashi and dotonbori. Room is small but clean, you get what you pay for. Saw a lot of complaint regarding the room size, a hotel with bigger rooms in this location means double the price of hotel il cuore.

Price: Average - For walk-ins, it would cost 9000 yen. So try looking at agoda.com or booking.com for early bird discounts. I got my 3 nights stay for 20000 yen (8500 php, 2014)

Location: Superb - Very accessible from Namba Station. Take subway exit 5 or exit going to Swiss Hotel. Staying in Namba means you have direct access from and to the airport, you can take Midosuji Line and Sennichimae Line. You can also see Namba Parks and Takashimaya. There are a lot of convenient stores and restaurants around the area.

Check-in: Unique - Upon presenting my booking.com document and passport, they handed me the hotel card. It is the one used on the check-in machine to pay the room fee. Don't worry because instruction is also available in English. After inserting the bills, the hotel card will be ejected with the indication of "paid".

Room: Spacious – Space is too expensive in Japan, the room space I got is more than the fee of which I paid for. Not congested with amenities and you can freely move around.

Amenities:
Bath, shower, ion hairdryer, slippers, bath towel, face towel, toothbrush & toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, bidet toilet, refrigerator, TV, desk, phone, hot pot, mirror, high-speed Internet access and trouser press.

Housekeeping: Average - My room is 1313 (13th room on 13th floor). I requested for non-smoking room, but it’s a bit smelly (smoke). Good that there is air perfume included in their amenities. Other than that, my room is always kept clean, with refill of green and orange tea everyday.

Tips:
Most of the average hotels would not have bathroom slippers, so good thing I brought mine.
If going back late to the hotel and will take the elevators beyond 10pm, guests should insert the hotel card for it to open.

Terrible experience....Please do not stay here! They double charged my master card and are refusing to refund the money. So make sure you check your bank account.

The location is great but there are a lot better hotel in the area!

This hotel is located within a 3 minute walk of the main JR train station. The room size is not too bad when compared to many Japanese hotels. There was even room for both our suitcases to be left flat - one on the luggage rack and the other on the coffee table. Plus we had two chairs and we could still walk around the room. Some hotels in Japan you have to close your bags and stand them against the wall just so you can walk around the bed. On one of the upper floors there is a washing machine, dryer, microwave, ice machine, and vending machine with beer. On the ground floor there is a lounge where you can get free coffee. This hotel is located right in the heart of the Namba district with all the restaurants and shops. It is only a five minute walk to the Dotonbori area which is where all the lights and nightlife are located. If you are not looking for a five star hotel, then this one is clean and comfortable and the location is excellent.

We spent 2 nights in April 2014 at Il Cuore Namba hotel in Osaka.
Well located, very close to Namba Station. Staff willing to help.
Room relatively large for Japan, with enough room for a small table and an armchair. Unfortunately the double bed is against the wall. Mattress good too train for Ryocan (as hard as futons).
Very clean.
Good address for a couple of nights at a correct price in Osaka.
