Hotel Monterey Osaka

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Last hotel (out of 5) on our trip. Location is very near osaka train station so good for coming and going back to the airport. Hotel is like a european one architecturally and the rooms have a lot of dark wood and tiled floor. Strange smell on bathroom and the loudest aircon. Breakfast was too late for us as had an early flight - doesnt start till 7am which is quite late. Wouldnt recommend to a friend and would prob try a different one near the station.

Stayed 4nights with breakfast inclusive. Location is convenient for Airport trains or by Airport Limousine at Herbis Osaka. Very easy to identify the hotel building as the chapel on the 8th floor can be seen from road side. The single room size is adequate with full amenities. Very minimal disturbance coming from the railway tracks. I like the firm pillows & pyjamas provided. The free to use 'HANDY' device is so useful outside the hotel.. Buffett breakfast is from 7am-9.30am and on my last day, the staff was kind enoough to let me enter earlier as I had to catch the airport limo <7am. I only have time to pack some croissants and very grateful for his kind consideration. Many eateries are nearby. As the train stations area are huge, always remember the landmark, Sakurabashi exit, nearby Eki Marche.If you carry the HANDY device, just use it to help with navigation. Remember to make sure fully charge before bringing it out. All the staffs are friendly and I was able to borrow an adaptor for my netbook.

The hotel decor hasn’t been updated in around 40 years and gives off a bad sense from the get go. The pillows and bed are very uncomfortable as is the room size. Laundry is advertised in the ad but which comes at a ridiculous cost per item (!) Genuinely not worth the money at all.

Hotel located near Osaka Train Station, easy to travel around and good/nice Japanese food just about 5 mins walk. Room is clean and tidy daily. Thanks to Mizuho Yoshida for clear instruction on the direction to get to the hotel.

We stayed at Hotel Monterey Osaka for 4 Nights. Room was a little old but not bad. With price and location, it makes great value to stay at this hotel. Only few minutes from Sakurabashi Exit (Osaka JR Station)

It’s about 10 minutes walk to/from the station so it’s tiring if you are carrying heavy shopping or a young child. The basement of the hotel is connected to an underpass to the airport limousine bus and the Umeda station. There’s a low rumble of trains (we’re on 11th floor) but it’s not intrusive. Noise from corridor is clearly audible. A grandmother was calling for her grandson early one morning and we could hear them clearly. Breakfast is good. Very busy and guests are in a hurry. Try to go after 8.30am. Breakfast ends at 9.30am and they clear up on time. I left a little bit of water in a cup one day and at the end of the day, saw a notice under the cup that they do not throw away any leftovers so the cup was left as is. Another empty cup near the bed was also left as is. The next day, I took care to throw away all the water in my cup and noticed that cup was placed back on tea tray. Same happened whenever I forget to throw away water in my cup in the subsequent days. Seems an unusual practice to me.

Close to the train line and can hear noise constantly. Poor English. I understand this is a non English speaking country but have travelled to multiple hotels around Japan and unfortunately the staff here found it difficult. I did not feel the standard. Considering the hotel rating of 4/5 at the front desk. Nice rooms and breakfast was good.

4 star hotel however 5 star service! Room is small but comfortable with wifi and air conditioning. Hotel was able to store my luggage before and after check in free of charge. After I checked out, I accidentally left something in the room and didn't realize until the next day, staff was able to help me track it down and I was able to pick it up! Unbelievable service! Never in a million years did I think I would get it back but thanks to the honest and reliable staff I was able to! Thank you!

The hotel is accessible to MTR. Starbucks is just a step away but it opens at 7am. If i remember correctly, Kyoto is less than an hour away from this area. 7eleven is just 10mins away. However, the hotel has no partner tour agency since this is a business area. The hotel is European inspired with old elevators working and dial telephones on every floor. It has wifi on all rooms.

Situated minutes from Osaka station it is a modern building built to look like one from the past. The lifts are ornamental with a arrow pointing to the floor number. There is a chapel on the 8th floor (reception) and a courtyard. The room were were allocated was 1101 which is a corner room, it was small to say the least as we are not the smallest of people. There is a small lobby with a small wardrobe off this is a tiny bathroom (room for one only). Then through to the room with twin beds. There is no storage space whatsoever, a small desk and table and two chairs make up the other items. There is a view of the railway line and the Umeda Sky Building which is worth a visit. Alright for an overnight stop.
