Stayed for two night stay while spending a week prior in Kyoto/Nara area. Room size is generous especially after staying at standard small Japanese hotel room in Nara prior. After getting off the nearby Osakajokoen JR station and walking the last 1/8 mile to the hotel, we were greeted immediately by the hotel staff who carried our luggage all the way to the registration desk (and the lobby is an impressive sight). Staff was quick to get our room and take us there. Room uses a physical key security system to activate room lights (even bathroom). If one person leaves with the key then the electricity in the room is turned off (even the outlets). Glad we got the superior room of the castle view - definitely worth it the slight premium. Our room faced southwest and can get warm in the summer. Room is large and comfortable except for the carpeting and AC. While cleaned, the carpet was in need of replacement. The AC while set to 18C never seemed to get the room as cold as we would like.
Very comfortable modern hotel in excellent location with good sized well appointed room. The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from Osaka station - reasonably easy to find although we did get slightly lost and needed to ask for directions.
The location is very good close to Osaka Castle, restaurants and shops.
Buffet breakfast was quite good although they did run out of some items and we had to ask for them to be replenished.
The hotel is near the subway. We booked 2 twin room for two night. It is small but very clean and neat.Above all breakfast are included. The breakfast varieties changes every morning and free coffee all day through. During our two weeks stay in Japan from 4 stars to 2 stars hotel. This is the most comfortable of all.
Good Location, near from Subway Tanimachi 4 Chome, Strategice place for all around OSAKA, near from Osaka Castle (5-10 min on walk), Room Clean is good. Staff need needs to be improved capability in English speaking for communication, but patient is number 1. I will be suggest this hotel for my friend and family.
It's everything you would expect from a japanese hotel, small rooms and decent amenities. However, the room had the largest hotel fridge i have ever had. I've stayed in many 5 star hotels and the size of the fridge does not match the one in the room. Good enough to store fruits, drinks and dishes. It has a separate freezer and it freezes any liquid pretty quickly. The room also comes with free wired high speed internet and a microwave. The room itself was pretty small, but i was barely in the room unless i was sleeping so it did not matter to me. The bed is pretty comfortable, nothing special. The air conditioning system in the room was a bit weird. The temperature seem to be erratic, as the room would be cold, then a bit stuffy a couple hours later; it did not become to uncomfortable, but it was something I noticed during the stay. The vent was also pretty small and was located in the small corridor near the bathroom door.
The hotel staff spoke little English, but it was good enough. The lady was very helpful and gave us the best routes to wherever we needed to go. They were kind and weren't hesitant to assist.
This district, previously a major rice market, showcases the changes Osaka underwent when Japan was opened to the West. Aside from nearby Osaka Castle, the historic walking course along Mido-suji Avenue is popular with visitors for its featured turn-of-the-century architecture. Nakanoshima Park, situated between the Dojima and Tosabori Rivers, includes a garden with 4,000 varieties of roses and the Museum of Oriental Ceramics well-known for its collection of Chinese and Korean pieces.
