3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

What I like:- 1. The location - with many eateries around. There is McD/ MOS burger, family mart and lots of local food too. Skip the hotel bfast option. 2. The location - walking distance to the Osaka castle. Its beautiful at night. 3. The location - its next to the subway exit. 4. The room - is bigger than toyoko-inn, comfy. Highly rated. What I din like: 1. None.

It has a great location at the exit 8 of Tanimachi 4 chome station. You can also use exit 5 or 6 and cross the road (as it's bit confusing to find exit 8). Breakfast is mostly Japanese food which I prefer to have, from croquette, nugget, fish, tofu, miso soup, to curry sauce with rice. It's walking distance to Osaka castle, several stations away from many attractions such as Dotonbori, Namba, etc.

Just thought the room would not be cleaned since I saw the dusty tables and bedsides. The breakfast was nice and many choices, but the room quality would degrade the total value of the hotel. The location is nice and got a quick access to the subway.

Hello everyone,the hotel by itself is huge,well organized,the room is small but convenient and is located right outside of the tanimachi chome 4 train station.Dont forget to bring with you swimming shorts cause the hotel has a indoor swimming pool.P.s a great tip to move around in Japan,download the hyperdia app,that plans for you the routes off your destinations with trains.

I stayed here for 4 nights. Check in was fast and courteous – very impressive. There are several lifts, so getting to and from your room is fast too. All hotel rooms in Japan are very compact, but this one was probably the tightest! There was also no view from the window, as the glass had been covered with some kind of opaque frosting, so it must have looked out onto another wall. The single bed was wider and longer than western ones. There is a fridge and water heater (not a kettle – I couldn’t work it out), as well as a large television and desk/chair. Wifi in the room is very good. The bed was comfortable as was the duvet, and the air conditioning is good. There was no wardrobe – just some coat hangers on the wall. Breakfast wasn’t included in my tariff, but there are so many places where you can eat, and plenty of convenience stores nearby to buy fruit, yogurts, etc to stock the fridge with breakfast items. The bathroom is very small. The bath is small but deep, and there is every toiletry you could possibly need in there. The location is brilliant – it is literally about 10 metres from the nearest exit of the Tanimachiyonchome subway station, and an ideal base from which to explore Osaka!

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.
