This hotel was the best hotel we stayed in Japan!
We did book the superior double room for ¥36,000 for 2 nights. In Australia you would pay more than that to be in the centre of town.
When we checked in, reception were ok, not as friendly and hospitable than other hotels we stayed at in Japan.
The location is great, probably it's best feature... It's nice the life of Osaka is at your doorstep, especially if you like walking around late at night, you don't have to worry about public transport. The Dotonbori area is just around the corner where you can see the neon lights and the Glico Running Man! Shinsainashi arcade and Shinsaibashi station are 5 min walk away. Perfect area for people watching too.
The room itself had a slight boutique feel with a small desk which my partner loved, without cramping the room. The bed was comfortable and had the buckwheat pillows which didn't bother us too much as we'd been sleeping on one for the past 4 nights before.
The bathroom was nice. English instructions for using the air con is provided, this was the only hotel we stayed at that had it. Unfortunately no English speaking channels on TV (just even one news channel would be nice!) ;)
We loved this hotel and found it best for design and location.More
