Me and my friend spent few nights at hotel kuramoto since our original hotel had to relocate us due construction work.
The hotel has old look and feel to it and the lobby seemed little bit intimidating at first due the smell of people smoking cigarettes like there was no tomorrow. Luckily, that was only our first impression of the hotel.
Our traditional japanese style room was very spacious and had all the necessary items available that you need from a room (safe, good wifi, comfortable tatami to sleep etc.) You can also order a massage to the room if you need something like that.
Im addition, kuramoto has a simple public bath for you to use. Nothing relaxes you more than a hot bath after a long day at Osaka.
The location is very good. Dotombori and Shinsaibashi suji are literally right next to the location and there is Den Den town 5min walk away for anime and otaku goods. The location also means that there are loads of places to eat and of course, you can take a subway to get where ever you might want to go.
Overall it was a good experience. However, don't expect anything too fancy. It is an old hotel, with old feel to it but it is a good place for you to crash. More
