Recent guest reviews

We stayed in Hotel Brighton Osaka Kitahama during the last week of October. We were a family of 3 adults and 1 child. The room we booked was the executive room at the executive floor, and I was surprised with the size of the room. We did not feel cramped at all. The bathroom had a wide array of toiletries, a bath tub and a separate shower area. The sink even had a small stool for use. It is a 5min walk from the station exit and this is why we just chose to move about by taxi most of the time. Even so, I would say that I liked the location because there was a supermarket nearby, a large 711, and a fair sized Lawson’s convenience store. There were also restos nearby and is located in a quiet part of Osaka. Namba and Dotonburi is around 7min by taxi, the airport is 45min via Namba Express. I would say that the receptionist can be more warm and accommodating to weary travellers.

Typical Japanese hotel smallish ( room for 3 has draw and cupboard space for 1) but adequate room, fully equipped. Tea / coffee making facilities, TV, tablet computer with hotel and information about Osaka. Usual multifunction toilet that terrifies westerners. Forgotten your pajamas, slippers, toothbrush, razor don't worry it's all here. For quite a large hotel it's tucked away in side streets so make sure you have a map. Close to one of the numerous exits from Kitahama station on Osaka subway system. Restaurant in the lobby does japanese breakfast and dinner, ice dispensers, vending machines and microwaves dotted around the hotel. 7 eleven across the street and supermarket on the corner provide additional options.

We stayed in this hotel back in November 2015 (review only goes back one year), and have rebooked for our Japan trip next month. The hotel is very modern and has a real 'corporate' feel about it. The room was larger than most hotels we have experienced in Japan. Expect the bed to be pushed against a wall in a standard room, although it's convenient because there's storage space on the ledge by your bed. The bathroom was excellent. The bath and shower are in a room inside the bathroom, all water proofed, so you can bath and shower at the same time separately. The location is excellent. It's a nice walk to Dotonbori. Directly across the road (a small side street) from the hotel is a convenience store that sells everything you need, including hot food. I'd recommend buying drinks and snacks to put in your mini bar. The hot food is handy for early morning tours and late arrivals. The bed was comfortable, especially for a 185cm, large man and his partner.

This hotel is in the business district of Osaka, but within easy reach of all the city; with the subway at the end of the street. It is 3 subway lines to get to Shin-Osaka, but as they come every couple of minutes, it's no problem. If you do use the subway, remember to use exit 5, the closet to the hotel. The room is about 20 sq/mtr, so large for Japan. Clean and comfortable great shower and bath with excellent water pressure. Coin operated laundry on 2 floors and iron available from reception. 7 eleven across the road. Staff were friendly and helpful with check-in and checkout times adhered to. Overall, a great hotel, highly recommend.

Stayed here for four nights, with the intention of using it as a base to explore Osaka as well as for day trips to nearby cities (Kyoto, Nara). As others have mentioned, the location is pretty good as there is a train station (Kitahama station) very close by to the hotel and this station has the Sakaisuji line which takes you to Namba/Dotonbori. One thing to note though is that we ended up having to use another train station, the Yodoyabashi station, which is about 10 minutes away, a few times. For example, when we were coming into Osaka from Tokyo, we took the bullet train to Shin-Osaka station, and from that station, the quickest way to the hotel leads you to Yodoyabashi station. We also used this station when we were going to and coming back from the Umeda area/sky building. In terms of the neighborhood, it is located in a financial district, as evidenced by many tall gray buildings and flocks of salary men and women on the streets on a weekday morning. That said, it still has a few restaurants in the immediate area (e.g. Mos Burger, a michelin star tempura restaurant) and two convenience stores directly across from the hotel (7-11 and Lawsons). Dotonbori is also a 15-20 mins train away (also possible to walk there in ~25-30 mins) , so you probably don't need to eat around the area anyways. As for the hotel itself, the building and rooms are very modern looking and clean. The rooms come with all the necessities (and free bottled water) and has a tablet where you can control the lights and make calls to the front desk or other rooms. The size of the room was small, which is the norm for Japan, but it was still manageable (able to fully lay out two small suitcases). The staff was neither rude nor very friendly, but at the very least, they were efficient and helpful (e.g. quick check-in, helped us call a restaurant for dinner reservations). Overall, it was a pleasant experience staying here. The only thing that really bothered me was the higher-than-expected price (I paid about $150 a night for a standard double room during early to mid October).

Very big and clean room for Japan standard. The bathtub fill up very quickly. Hi tech control box is provided to control almost everything. I will like to put a very big thumbs up for the wireless internet provided with the room. It is seem less and the speed is faster than my home internet. This is unlike many hotels in the world that promise you wireless internet and the speed feels like crawling. Staffs are very friendly. I noticed they will always have a chinese speaking staff either from China or taiwan to cater for the chinese customers. There is a very cheap and good bento set take away shop behind the 7-11 opposite the hotel. Kitahama subway station is 1 minute away. Dontonbori and many shopping streets is only 3 stops away.

The location is convenience, we took the Nankai Rapit from Kansai Aiport, then took the train for a few stations. The hotel is just less than a minute walk from the subway. Check-in is smooth and quick, staff is politely and friendly and speak good English. The hotel has a good security on the lift as you need to scan your room card in order to go to your floor. Hotel room is clean, I like the bathroom and the shower place. The shower is strong enough. The location is safe ad quiet. There are 2 convenience shops just next to the hotel. The surrounding area is nice, with some nice cafes. And it is just 2 stations away from the main shopping and entertainment district.

We were there in the first week of Oct 2017 for 5 nights paying c US$233/JPY25000 a night for a 3 bed. We were VERY SATISFIED with the hotel. It's a very new hotel and all 3 beds and duvet were good quality and clean. The wifi was good as I watched Netflix and my own Slingbox every night without problems. The room was 27sm so not that big as compared to say a hotel in South East Asia but this is Japan. The bath room was of a very decent size with a bath tub, separate shower area and a completely separate area for the toilet and basin. The hotel is in an office area easily 100m off the main road so it was very quiet not to mention the double glaze. All rooms face one side as that is how hotel rooms were laid out. There is a 7/11 and Lawson across the road from the hotel. Just 100m from the hotel is the Kitahama Tower which is an office block (where the subway station is) and there are a number of small family restaurants if you want to eat very affordable and good lunch before heading out. A meal is about JPY1000 per person and it's what you will have to pay 3 times the price in HK. Please don't be fooled by the location as a first time visitor to Osaka. The hotel is in a very central location. There is the Kitahama station 100m from the hotel and the hotel is 2 stops away from Osaka station (but you will need to change line and go and up and down as in any subway systems) and 3 stops from the other shopping district in Nippombashi without the need to change line. If you don't want to catch the train, it's about JPY1000 to catch a taxi to both places as we did, just a few hundred yen more than train but saved lots of time. Will take less than 10 minutes both ways. Given the hotel is new, very clean, well managed, location and etc. I will definitely go back and stay there in my next Osaka trip. It was pricier than normal because of the China, HK and Korean golden week. But at other times, I am sure it will be cheaper. Brighton City was a pleasant surprise. Very happy we chose the hotel without knowing anything about Osaka being first time there.

What a great stay we had here at Hotel Brighton City. We booked this hotel because it was centered in the middle of Osaka and it seemed like it would be easy to get around. It was a surprise to find out that the hotel was actually about 50 meters away from a subway station. The neighborhood is a business like one with many people going to and leaving work in the morning and evening. Best part was that the hotel is right across from a 7-11 which means easy access to cheap meals. The room is standard but larger compared to Japanese standards. The bathroom is a good size with separate shower and tub stalls. The hotel also has coin laundry so bring some 100yen coins. If we are ever in Osaka again we will definitely stay here because it is a bargain and a wonderful place to stay.

Much more modern and nice than I expected! Great service and clean hotel. 5 min from the station. Simple rooms, quiet and perfect for a one night stay. For budget travelers it's a great stop! Bathroom was spacious and modern and bed super comfy.
