"Couldn't have picked a better hotel for location. "
This is a fabulous hotel, accessible to the Shinosaka Station. That made a huge difference in terms of being able to catch trains with and without luggage. The other advantage is that this station is another multilayered one with access to shops and restaurants. The rooms are small but modernly designed and thoughtful. We appreciated the rain shower, massage chair, and room fridge. The breakfast buffet was fabulous: something for everyone. The staff was friendly with the exception of one person, male who was not pleasant. We would not hesitate to choose this hotel again for its location, modern design and thoughtful approach.
Good choice if you want this location. Not luxury but very nice especially for the price we paid at about $100. Free shuttle to station runs every 15 minutes or you can walk easily, probably less than a half mile and easy. Very good breakfast buffet with a lot of choice including western or western-like foods. Sufficient English instructions in room and, although front desk staff are not proficient, they are friendly and helpful.
Room was small but I guess it's normal in Japan. Room is very clean with very polite staff. I noticed that people in Osaka speak less English, but they will help you a lot (they will help you at the best that they can do). Facilities are OK. If you need to wash clothes, there is a coin-operated washing machine and dryer (ask the staff for the location). Location is 3 blocks away from the Midosuji line NishiNakaJimaMinamiGata (1 minute away from Shin-Osaka station on train and probably 10 minutes away on foot)
