APA Villa Hotel Yodoyabashi

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Located in busy area of Osaka you need taxi from train stn to get there. Some pubs and restaurants around. Staff at reception speak good English but not super-friendly. No gym or pool available. Breakfast quite OK. Hotel room very small even smaller than other Japanese hotels of same standard. Clean bathroom w/o complaints. View from window is purely buildings and roofs. Price is acceptable incl breakfast. Overall medium rating.

Located in the business district. There's almost no eating places around or may be because we were staying during New Year holidays. 7-11 is just right across the hotel. Very close to Yodoyabashi and Kitahama station. Room was a bit outdated but still gave a comfortable atmosphere. Overall, it was a pleasant stay. Staff was very friendly and polite. The only thing I don't like was the self-served laundry. The drying machine is a joke. It uses fan to dry clothes instead of heat. It accepts coin but only for 20' duration. I had to go up and down from the room to the basement to insert the coin. It took me almost 3 hours to finish laundry.

The hotel is comfortable, the staff super friendly and very helpful. rooms are small so make sure to get just 1 suitcase! it's very clean and ideal if you are a tourist that is out all day exploring. Breakfast is good, it was my first time in Japan so to me it was really good! a very important note: is close to a metro station!

A smart modern hotel with excellent sized rooms and facilities. For me, a public hot bath is now a priority for all of the hotels I stay at on my regular visits to Japan. The sauna is a bonus. With 2 convenience stores opposite the main entrance and a 3 minute walk to Yodoyobashi subway station offering quick access to Umeda, Dotonbori and other popular locations this is a great value hotel.

First time to Japan but did not expect this. We booked a double bedded room and it was so small that I had to leave our 3 bags at the entrance leaving just enough space to open the door. Then realised that I cant open the bathroom door which was also small as ever. It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that even Snow White's dwarfs would have found it too small. Didn't realise the approx $100/night room would be like this. We booked it through an OTA and had given a CC guarantee and of course paid at the reception upon check in. If not we would have found another hotel. I wouldn't call the location a plus as you have to walk about 7 to 10 minutes from Yodoyabashi subway. Never would I recommend this hotel and will never visit again.

I stayed here for 4 nights as a solo traveller. The hotel is located about 7 minute walk from yodoyabashi station on the midosuji subway line. It's right in the middle of some business district so it can get very busy during rush hour. The first thing I noticed when I checked into the room was the space.. there wasn't any! Even as a solo traveller I had trouble stowing my luggage in a way that I wouldn't trip over it. And the weirdest thing is the television is enormous compared to the room! The bathroom is even smaller too, you better hope you're not tall because I'm 5'10" and my head was almost touching the ceiling, even while stood in the bath. Which brings me onto my next problem... the dust. I was disappointed to find dust when I checked in. There was a thick layer stuck to the top of the curtain in the corner, which should have been very obvious to the cleaners because they opened them every day! The fan in the bathroom was also covered with dust, and considering my head was up close and personal with it every time I showered, I was disgusted! The most modern thing about the room was the massive television. The kettle, fridge, toilet, shower, sink were all old and outdated. The one thing I will give this hotel points for are the amenities. They provide everything you could want and more like hair ties, razor, sponge, shower cap, toothbrush and paste and the thing I liked the most was a free mineral water. Overall I wasn't impressed at all especially with the cleanliness. I wouldn't stay here again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

The hotel is near station and convenient to get around. Easy access from Osaka station. We couldn't get non smoking room room was smell. I recommend to book non smoking room if you are non smoker. Breakfast was good!

The Japanese-style budget hotel such as the general private ward. A budget hotel to be able to stay at carelessly because I am not particular about one and the comings and goings that the waiting on customers is good.

I booked a night at the hotel through internet. When my husband tried to check in, they would not give him his room key quoting a "policy" which i could not find anywhere online. The staff's responce to the whole situation was very coniving and i would not recomend this hotel.

The apps villa hotel is in a good area, but the only thing is the rooms are very very small, my husband and I almost can walk or change or move in the room ..... nor recomendable if you have some big cases and the bed is super tine ...
