APA Villa Hotel Osaka-Tanimachi 4 Chome-Ekimae

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Wonderful location, just 1 minute walk from the metro station. Staff were helpful and eager to help. Good in-room amenity. The tea bags are great. There's a public bath down stairs for the guests. Worth a try. Rooms are small but enough if you utilize the space wisely.

The hotel is situated right next to Exit 8 of the Osaka subway, so very convenient. And it's a walking distance to Osaka castle. The public bath is also very good. However, the room is rather small (similar to other APA).

Strategic location at the outskirts of Osaka Centre. Well fed by u way to the hustle of Umeda, Namba and Shinsabashi but you can still stroll to the residential area nearby to experience the peacefulness of residence. Remember to ask for Non-Smoker room. The nearest subway is Tanimachi-4-Chome. The elevator from the subway station is just 20 m from the Hotel.

As usual APA hotel, the room is small but pack with amenities. Staff was friendly. Try to chose twin when you are couple, bed and room could set bit bigger. Breakfast was ok, not bad with Osaka breakfast style.

Stayed here for 2 nights for city break. The location is very good, just outside the subway exit. Front desk service is excellent with smile all the time. The room is typical APA style, comfortable bed and clean bathroom. There is a public bath on the basement, it free of charge for the resident, not very impressive but worth a try.

Stayed at the APA tanimachi 4 during new year holiday as the rate offered was very attractive. Room was small but this's normal for Japan hotels. I had no problem opening my 28" luggage. Mattress was firm. Had a good eight hours sleep. Hotel had a public bath which was also good to relax your muscles after long walk. There's a subway entrance in front of the hotel. You need to change train going to Namba or Umeda. Overall my stay was satisfactory.

First and foremost, hotels in Japan are generally extremely, extremely tiny. The population density is incredibly high so don't expect hotels to have spacious rooms. That said, our semi-double room had very little luggage space. We had to open our suitcases on the bed whenever we needed anything. Not a very comfortable bed to share between two grown adults either. Only advantage of staying here was that the subway was literally just steps away and we could walk to Osaka Castle. Although not terrible, this is quite an expensive hotel considering the quality of the stay.

I booked two nights here and asked to extend today (16/07/16), and they more than doubled the price of the room i was in! They blamed on being a saturday and sunday, so i told them i'd rather check out and go somewhere else, and i'm so glad i did. The hotel has small rooms, and they charged me £44 for a small bag of laundry which extremely expensive. I've paid £2-£5 for a better job with more laundry in the bag! Total rip off in my opinion. Wifi wasn't great in the room either. Positive side is that it's near Osaka Castle and a metro station is close by. Nothing else good to say about it. Oh, the cleaner was nice.

I was surprised that this hotel room in Osaka was even smaller than my hotel room in Tokyo for around a similar price. The staff here are very nice and accomodating and the hotel decor is quite nice. I asked for a quiet room and I ended up with a front room facing the motorway, luckily the thick glass seemed to block most of the noise. The location is conenient in that there's a metro station entrance right outside the front door. Also the breakfast at the hotel was decent as well.

A little pricey but possibly peak season. Location right at the door step of 2 subway lines. Clean Good amenities Surprised there is no coffee sachets in room. Nice water boiler Staff was friendly and offered extra help when needed. For eg making a local call in Japanese to reserve a tour
