We stayed for 14 nights from 07/Dec/14 to 21/Dec/14 in a triple room.
We arrived at the hotel around 08AM & offered to pay extra for early check-in but were refused. Somehow at 2PM, our offer was accepted. Thus, be prepared if you come in from early flight - you will need to hang around until 3PM check-in time.
Other than that it was a pleasant experience. Room was clean, bed comfortable, supermarket downstairs, accessible to subways & JR, restaurants/shops within walking distance.
"Basic, large hotel in great location for subway."
The APA hotel was overall a good experience. On arrival the staff weren't as friendly as the other places we have been but I wouldn't consider that a huge issue really. The room was small as per in Japan but the bed/pillow combo was not ideal! Hard and uncomfortable and the pillows were partially beans/stuffing? I guess if you are used to that it would be okay. I didn't use the spa facilities but they seemed popular so I assune they were good!. We had a good view of the city as well which was cool and the bath was deep and bathroom was well layed out. The best thing was that when you walk out the door you basically walk into the enterance for the higobashi subway station- 3 stops (180yen) away from Namba (dotonbori/running man/shopping/nightlife etc) so that was awesome. If you are looking for luxury I would reccomend one of the more expensive rooms or a hotel more directed at guest experiences etc. This one has a bit of a business feel to it! Good hotel if you are looking for a good location and reasonable price but aren't overly concerned about confort and service!
The hotel was in an amazing location! Located within a block of the Namba/Dotombori action and from the Nippombashi train station. Was really nice to be that close!
Had some nice welcome lemon water in the lobby and hotel staff were really friendly.
The washer and dryer on site was awesome to have. Wifi in rooms was great also.
Amazing two nights stay here. We walked to the Okasa castle in 6 mins then we had a great dinner at the underground mall. We also went to spa bath in the hotel which were about $11/pp for two nights. Incredible breakfast offered as well. Overall, we love our stay so Thank You!
We rented a family room. It is at the 4th floor. Our door can access directly to the fountain garden. It was nice and private. The hotel is conveniently located in the shopping street and 5min to Namba train station which is 45min away from Kansai Airport. Great value for money. Sure will stay again here.
I had a very nice experience at this hotel while I was in Osaka. The walk to shin-Osaka station was not that far and I had no concerns with the route. The room was clean and comfortable and the price was very reasonable.
