Recent guest reviews
1)Easy access from Kyobashi Station (JR and Keihan Line). Also near to Osaka Business Park subway station. 2)Near to AEON and Keihan Mall. We bought dinner at Keihan mall. There is also a Family Mart on the first level where we can buy food and drinks. Family Mart has an ATM machine you can withdraw cash with your credit card. 3)Kyobashi Shotengai shopping district where you can find restaurants. 4)Rooms are cleaned daily. Well informed staff at counter. Well stay again.
A good 7 to 10 minute walk from Kyobashi station. In a quiet business area near Osaka Castle. Friendly staff, room was adequate and the price was reasonable. I've shown the taxi driver the Japanese address but he still got confused due to it being a bit isolated but there are convenience stores and fast food outlets in the area.
We stayed here for two nights when visiting Osaka as tourists. The hotel is located in the business district, close to Osaka castle, so if you want to visit Dotonbori and other touristy locations you have to travel up to half an hour on the train, but apart from that I was very pleased with the location. The hotel is easy to find from the Osaka Business Park station, and there are some restaurants and supermarkets in the business park. Also the location means that it's nice and quiet at night so we slept very well. The hotel itself feels plush but in a slightly old-fashioned way (although not at all shabby). I found it very charming, it reminded me of large New York hotels and it does feel very upmarket for the price. We had breakfast included in our room price and we were happy with the selection on offer, there are plenty of options, both Western and Japanese. We didn't use the restaurants for dinner as they are expensive and there are much better value places to eat in the business park or in the city itself. The hotel is obviously aimed at business conferences and weddings so everything is on a grand scale, beautifully decorated, and there's even a little white chapel(!) near the top of the building. It's quite different to the other hotels we stayed in during our trip and I enjoyed the novelty of this place. I would definitely recommend it.
We stayed here for a week, basing ourselves in Osaka while we explored the area and did day-trips on the bullet trains. It's quite close to Kyobashi station, which is part of the Osaka loop line (which goes direct to Universal). When you arrive at Shin-Osaka station, you have to catch another train to Osaka station, THEN catch the loop to Kyobashi. It's a bit complicated, but once you've done it the first time it's easy. Fairly easy walk to Osaka Castle 20 min-ish. Staff were very helpful, and spoke good English. The room was pretty tiny - but no more than is usual for Japanese hotel rooms! A laundry for guests to use would have made the stay even better. Breakfast was included with our rate... it wasn't fantastic. If you got there after 9, most of the hot food had gone cold. There's a convenience store and cafe on the ground floor of the building that are ideal for breakfast. The cafe did exceptionally good coffee, and had pancakes too.
Well situated for the castle, but otherwise an uninteresting area near a business park. Plenty of eateries nearby but few have English menus. The Family Mart downstairs is very good for breakfast if you don't want to pay for the hotel's. I stayed here because it was easy to get to from KIX. Just take the JR line and change at Tennoji. As others have described, the hotel is easily found from Kyobashi station, with a covered walkway all the way via the west exit. You can also easily get the subway into the centre of the city. Or you can catch the Keihan train to visit Kyoto (about 45 minutes, but take the red or pink trains, not the green or blue ones!). The room was a single but had an almost double sized bed in it - really very spacious for Japan. Very quiet location, good for this light sleeper. The only amenity I found lacking was a safe in the room. Oh, and there is no coin-operated laundry either in the hotel or nearby. The laundry charges were per item and very expensive in my view. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
We stayed at this hotel for 5 days and absolutely loved it. Nice comfortable beds and walking distance to everything. Friendly staff too. Just washrooms were a bit cramped but still workable. Would recommend!
The hotel is conveniently located from the Osaka Business Park MRT. For holidaymakers the Osaka Castle is nearby too. Hotel is located near to Kyobashi which gives an easy access to travel to Kyoto via JR or other lines.
This hotel was the only property we did not select on our own. A friend recommended we stay here and we can see why they chose it. Very convenient to Kyobashi station which is very convenient to Osaka-jo and lots of the CBD. Lots of restaurants in the area. Covered walkway from the train station directly to the hotel. The most fantastic Family Mart I've been to. Rooms are the same size as most other business hotels. Lots of amenities. Everything pretty good. But ... our room was the least clean and least maintained of any room we've stayed at on this trip and any of the many others we've been on in Japan. The walls are dinged up. Things need to be touched up. The room wasn't the standard super clean we're accustomed to in Japan. Basically we feel there just needs to be a little TLC given to the property. In any other country the room would have been fine but the standards are so high here and this property just didn't make the mark.
This Hotel is all we wanted. Very clean, close to one of the JR lines, restaurants, very friendly staff and good internet connection.😆😊 We got lost the first day..so if you catch one of the JR lines to Kyobashi station make sure you exit through the west exit, cross the tunel (bridge) and then turn to you left. You will see the hotel at your left. The entrance is just there on the second floor. Thank you 😊😊
We had 2 rooms at this beautiful hotel. The rooms were a nice size. Lovely deep tub for a good soak in an updated bathroom. Huge selection of Western and Asian food offered in the breakfast buffet. Big room, plenty of seating. Very nice sitting room for fresh ground coffee or tea, dainty cookies offered all for no cost. It is a must to go up to the 14th floor and see the church built right inside of the hotel and if you get a chance to view the Tenseiden. Friendly, helpful staff. Would definitely stay there again.
