Hotel the Lutheran

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is about one minute from the subway station, near a number of convenience stores and a short walk from the castle. It was more spacious than a number of our other Japanese hotels, and had a fridge and kettle. The bathroom also had a good shower. Everything was very clean and comfortable, good amenities, brief WiFi problems but these were fixed quickly. If you stay here also note the castle is lit up beautifully at night and you can walk all the way up to it.

The hotel is located really close to Osaka Castle, and about a 1minute walk from the nearest underground station. We stayed on a non-smoking floor and our room was perfectly nice; clean and tidy, comfy, not the most spacious room ever, but fine for a short stop over. The shower was really strong and the toiletries were decent too. Other tourist spots in Osaka are just a short underground ride away. I’d recommend this hotel if you’re makijg a short stop over in Osaka.

We spent 2 nights in the hotel. Room: The room was a good size and had a comfortable bed. Cleanliness: Good Aircon: Good Staff: The staff spoke good English and were friendly/helpful Location: Very good, right on top of the castle and museum. Overall: A good clean hotel with a good location.

This is not by any means a luxury place. But the rooms are spacious enough and the location great if you want to visit Osaka and Kyoto without having to pay Kyoto prices, which can easily be twice as high. To get there, if you have been traveling on a shinkansen, you go from the Shin-Osaka shinkansen station to the Osaka train station and then take the Osaka loop line to Morinomiya ststion. You exit the station and cross the street to the Osaka Castle park. You walk about one and a half kilometer towards the NHK and police headquarters buildings and you are almost there. It's just a bit farther down. The walk across the park is very nice. And then you know the way back to get Shin-Osaka station and to Kyoto, which is less than an hour away by bullet train.

We stayed here for three nights. Room is clean and quiet, well equipped with coin launderette in basement which is handy. Good location, 5 minutes walk to nearby subway station, for train to Dontonbori and Osaka Aquarium. 10 minutes walk to Osaka castle. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Room is spacious and clean. Hotel location is very near the train station as well as the famous Osaka Castle. We stayed at the Lutheran Hotel for four while we were vacationing at Osaka from Kyoto. While weather at that time was very cold, the hotel has a heater that kept our stay very comfortable. Will certainly be back!

The hotel was located only a few minutes walking from the metro stop and as we walked to it we could see views of Osaka Castle. A nice modern hotel, the room was lovely and clean and the staff were very friendly.

Excellent location ( Exit 1B for elavator ) ,nearest to subway, Osaka-jo ,NHK , Japan Mint and others. The room was too small for family , it smaller than my expectation but very clean.The breakfast was ok.

Sufficient room space, convenient and extremely close to Osaka park. Close by to metro station. Excellent breakfast. Will definitely consider to stay here if I return. Friendly staff and clean premise.

Overall very nice hotel, but the WiFi has to be reset every hour or so. Many US websites blocked (e.g. Google.com, MUST only use Japanese version!) Rooms adequate, breakfast excellent and varied day to day.
