“Direction to the toyoko inn namba”
Reviewed 7 May 2014 via mobile

I just want to add some more information regarding direction to the namba toyoko inn.
After you follow the sign for central gate 2f,you will be on a busy street with a 4 ways intersection traffic.This is the part which I believe will confuse some travelers as which street you should enter inorder to find the gymnasium which many previous hotel guests had mentioned.
Just look for MacDonald which should be
on the corner to your left,if you stand infront of McDonald,you should see The Fraser's Residence on the right side of the street,now you are on the right track.
Just follow what everyone said about seeing a gymnasium on the left and after that you will come across another intersection,with a family mart across the road and toyoko inn on the left.

Stayed here for a night in January 2014 when I was in town to attend a concert at Zepp Namba. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. A little small, but the room rate is reasonable. There's free breakfast in the morning. The main thing I didn't like is the hotel's strict policy on not allowing guests into hotel room. My friends who came to see me weren't allowed into my room and they had to wait in the lobby!

This may not be a luxury hotel, but it has everything I need.
The staff is friendly and helpful and the price is excellent.
My room is clean. I have my own TV and my own bathroom with
bathtub. There is an Internet connection in the room and two
Internet-connected PCs in the lobby for free use.
The hotel ha everything I need.

Having stayed at several Toyoko Inns in the past, every hotel has been immaculately clean, very convenient and very well priced. Toyoko Inn Osaka Namba was no exception.

Having landed in Kansai airport, we wanted a hotel close to Namba within walking distance of train stations, and the Toyoko Inn at Namba fitted the bill nicely.
We caught the Nankai railway from Kansai to Namba Nankai station, and from there it was a leisurely 15 minute walk to the hotel.

Check-in is quick and easy. The front desk clerks, as with most hotels in Japan are very welcoming, courteous and helpful. They spoke a moderate amount of English, and certainly more than enough to get a non-Japanese speaker through the check-in process. With my limited amount of Japanese fluency the process was simple. We were already Toyoko Inn club members from our last Japan trip, so check-in was ultra smooth.

On checking in ameneties such as extra razors, towels and washcloths were available, and we were even given an extra pillow for our daughter, who was sharing one of the twin beds.

The rooms were exactly as we remembered them. Very small, but immaculately clean, and quite comfortable for sleeping. The twin rooms consist of two beds, with very little space around them, a rack on the wall for hanging clothes, a fridge, kettle, dehumidifier/purifier and a bathroom with the usual accompanyment of toothbrushes, and soap, shampoo and conditioner. All for around $90 for a twin room, including breakfast, is pretty good value, even if the room is tiny.

The breakfasts served at Toyoko Inns are basic, but included with the cost of the room, so it's hard to complain. There was a selection of onigiri, miso soup, salad and potato salad, teeny tiny pork sausages and plain rice. Along with coffee, milk and juice. All of this is served in the small hotel lobby, so if the hotel is busy as you can imagine this is quite popular and can become quite crowded.

There are a couple of tips and caveats with staying at a Toyoko Inn that you should be aware of:
*Toyoko Inn membership costs 1500yen per person
* If you aren't a Toyoko Inn member, check-in time is 4pm, and they strictly abide by this. Luggage can be left in the corner of lobby, and it is protected by a foolproof space-aged security system consisting of a net..with bells on it..draped over the top of the bags. If it was anywhere other than Japan this would be a concern.
* Toyoko Inn members get their check-in time bought forward to 3pm.
* If you choose an "eco plan" you get a small discount, but your room doesn't get cleaned. As a result however, you can come and go throughout the day as you please.
* If you don't choose an "eco plan" you have to leave your room during the day, and aren't permitted to re-enter it until your check-in time (3pm members, 4pm non members).
* Toyoko Inn members get a photo ID card which streamlines check-in considerably, and members get a 5% discount on 6 days a week, and a 20% discount on Sunday. The discount on a single Sunday in a twin room usually saves more than the cost of the membership in just one night's stay.
* Children can share a bed with an adult at no charge, but they don't get any extra pillows or ameneties (unless you get a nice conceirge like we did :-D)
* Toyoko Inn has an English website allowing bookings for non-members 3 months in advance, and member bookings 6 months in advance.

All in all, Toyoko Inn's offer fantastic value, ultra convenience and are invariably spotless. Definitely worth a look no matter where you're staying, and I thoroughly recommend giving the Toyoko at Namba a go. You won't be disappointed.

This was another standard Toyoko Inn hotel boasting a very convenient location if connecting from or to Kansai Airport. We took the Nankai Express rapit train straight out of Kansai to Namba Station, 30 minutes. Bought the Yokoso Osaka ticket for y1500 you get a subway unlimited day pass to use the next day plus the Rapit train ride. From Namba station,we took the Central Exit on 2f and walked across the street passing a large gymnasium on our left before reaching an intersection. Crossed the latter then turned left and walked another 150m for Toyoko on the right. A 15 minute walk tops.
Breakfast was skewed towards bread eaters, we skipped on the second morning. Humidifiers were standard in the bedroom. Another satisfactory Toyoko experience.

Arrived at Osaka on 14 Dec and travelled from Kansai Airport to Nankai Station in the late night. The instructions provided by the hotel could have been more informative but we were truly lucky as we met a young China Nationality guy who brought us to the hotel. Without his help, we would be taking a longer route. Like the other reviews, the rooms are small but clean. Breakfast is simple and we love the croissants. For a night stay, I would say the price is reasonable. However, I prefer to stay closer to namba station where all the happenings are.
