we stay in triple room, it's good and quite big room, sofa and toiletris available. good breakfast. clean hotel. but we can't find dust bin. a minimarket beside hotel, small shopping area in walking distance. nice area, quite calm.
The room was clean an spacious with very big beds. The toilet was clean and the facilities were in good order. Had a very restful slumber on the big, soft and comfortable bed. The buffet breakfast was good and the staff were very helpful.
Very grand style hotel. Friendly staff, spacious clean rooms and wonderful service. Breakfast was delicious and located close to amenities and local travel. Ample parking and a beautiful view of the surrounding city. Thoroughly recommend.
This is a clean hotel as most of the hotel rooms in Japan are clean and small. Good strong shower with sheseido toiletries, shower cap etc. High bathtub in the case of an earthquake with tiny protected bathroom. I got a room with 2 single beds, the bed nearest the window, the headboard is not next to the wall, 3 ft away from a covered emergency exit. The other bed is near the wall and next to bathroom. Wifi everywhere in the hotel and most important available in the room at a good speed. Staff are helpful and polite. My first night I slept well. The second night a siren blared at 2am, I thought emergency, it was the opposite fire brigade rushing to an emergency ! Shocked but managed to get on with my sleep. Breakfast was nice and not crowded. This hotel is near the train and bus station with some shops, supermarket, 24 hrs shops and various restaurants. It is a nice place for walk or cycle next to the river. If I am in this area, I try another hotel away from the fire brigade.
Very convenient for my purpose, and a comfortable place to decompress after my long flight. I particularly like the deep soaking height tub with abundant hot water. It was a little frustrating that no one at the front desk spoke English, but that seems to be the way in Japan at all but the most expensive hotels.
This hotel is located just outside of Osaka, a short subway ride away and the station is a nice, quick walk from the establishment. Amagasaki is a charming, quiet little city. There are plenty of shops and eateries outside the subway station. You can get meals, desserts, snacks and groceries. A huge center area with a giant water fountain is frequented by the locals and tourists for socializing, eating etc. Take the escalator to the walkway on top for a lovely stroll above traffic, get to the elevator at the end of the path, descend down to the street and you're at the hotel. The staff at the reception was very professional, courteous, respectful (a given in Japan) and helpful. They can also hold your luggage/baggage if needed and it's complimentary. Everyone was great about addressing your needs and answering your questions. The room was clean, comfortable and efficient. Slippers and sleeping gowns were available for your use. The shampoo, conditioner and body wash bottles were regular size and Shisheido brand!! An awesome treat! Plenty of other toiletries were given. The bed was cozy and relaxing. Love the pillows. Got some good nights' sleep. Nothing missing except no iron. It seems to be difficult to find in local chains in Japan and Korea. If you require one, ask! They may have it. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others! A convenience store is next door. There is a chinese restaurant down the street, but it is not that good, just OK. You have more options near the subway station and the surrounding areas. The hotel is across the street from the fire station, but it was fairly quiet at the time.
Stayed here for 3 nights. It works just fine as a place to come how to sleep. The location is away from all the hustle and bustle of Osaka if that is what you're looking for. In an industrial area so there really isn't much in the way of entertainment anywhere close by. There is a street full of pachinko parlours, and the closest station (10 minute walk) on the Hanshin line has a supermarket with some great food. Hotel could do with a renovation to bring it up to modern standards. Most furnishings in the lobby and rooms looked like straight out of the 80's. Not a knock on the property, it is what it is. An older property that is definitely showing its wear and tear. Didn't get around to exploring any of the hotel amenities. Also didn't need to interact with the staff much at all, all necessary convesations were short and concise. Service was professional if a bit stiff and unwelcoming. Washrooms were adequate. Shower supplies are from pump bottles if that is important to some. No extras such as lotions or any of that sort we've come to expect from Japanese hotels were provided. Very bare bones. A mini-fridge was included in the room, however was not powered on and we found out too late the next morning. Oh, the one great thing. Loved the pillows. Not sure what type there were, they had some sort of charcoal base on it?
This hotel is ideal for me. Amagasaki is an industrial city, right next to Osaka, just a five minute train-ride away, a 35 minute train-ride from Kyoto, 15 minutes from Kobe. So it is a superb base for sightseeing in the most historic and interesting part of Japan. The New Achaic Hotel is a substantial walk from the main railway station (25 minutes) but it is only a five to ten minute walk from a private railway line, the Hanshin one. The latter has frequent trains that take 10 minutes to a terminus next to Osaka Station, 25 minutes to Kobe, and is on a direct route to Nara. So the hotel is still superbly located for public transport, if one is willing to change trains or to walk. The staff only speak a little English, but they are very friendly, some of them particularly so. The rooms are large by Japanese standards. very well maintained, and with superb views; and the hotel is immaculately clean. The Christmas and New Year decorations are superb. Parts of the neighbourhood are less than salubrious, but the immediate environs of the hotel are fine, as are the routes to the railway stations. The main railway station, 25 minutes walk away, has a superb shopping centre, now called Q's Mall there, and some fine local restaurants. There is also a large bus station next to the Hanshin railway station, therefore just a few minutes from the hotel. And there is a direct coach to Kansai International Airport, leaving from the Hanshin station and taking less than an hour. The value for money is superb. This is my favourite hotel anywhere in the world.
Definitely, a very good hotel at a very nominal price. The room was clean and nicely kept, on higher floors there is pin drop silence and the views of the city are simply amazing and superb. Room service is also very nice and efficient. The bar on the 22nd floor has amazing views and serves all sorts of drinks. The food at the japanese Teppanyaki and Kushikatsu restaurants on the 21st and 22nd floor was absolutely fabulous but a little expensive though, you can get much cheaper version of the same food at the nearby Amagasaki commercial areas. The buffet breakfast on the ground floor restaurant is also pretty good.
On the high floors, no noise at all, so I had a great sleep in the cotton yukata...the restaurant on the ground floor is offering good Japanese food, but the Amagasaki Commercial area is so close, it is worth going to enjoy real, normal Japanese restaurants for cheaper... If you have Japanese friends who are already customers of the hotel ( with special membership card), ask them to make the reservation for you, members enjoy better discounts...
