Just catch no.11 airport limousine to OCAT and once at the station go up escalator/elevator and there will directions pointing you to the direction of the hotel and make your way up to level 22 for hotel lobby. Within walking distance to JR namba station. 7-11 and lawson not directly beneath hotel but still within walking distance as well. Quite quiet come night time eventhough near hospital. 10 mins away from dotonbori for nightlife and food options. Comfortable hotel room with great amenities. Only thing missing is in room safe. Good sized bathroom and triple room didn't feel claustrophobic for the husband, myself and mother. Overall a great stay :)
We only stayed 1 night and we booked a non-smoking room, but obviously it was a smoking room. They put an air purifier in the room, but it did not help. The staff were really very nice. We came earlier and left our things, to our surprise, they already brought our things to our room. Smooth checking in and checking out. I hope they will change their check out time. 10:00 a.m. is to early.
This hotel is in a good location. It's close to the subway, the shopping areas, and side street shops. They are all within walking distance. You can actually walk through the underground Crysta Shopping Mall, exit out into Shinsaibashi and then walk the length of that directly into Dotonbori. The subway entrance is just around the corner, where I easily caught the subway to Osaka Castle and on another day caught the subway to connect to the Hankyu line that took us to Kyoto. Another perk, there's a 7-11 and Mos Burger right across the street in case you just want a quick snack.
To me, the price of my room was good considering where I was located and availability. As in all pricing, it's a matter of choice in what you feel comfortable in paying.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating, and will try their best to communicate in English if need be. The day I arrived, I was early for check-in. The staff offered to store my luggage until check-in time, which I heartily accepted. Although I did not have to wait long, the staff graciously had my room prepared so I was able to check-in early. They must of known I had just gotten off a long flight and was really tired. I truly appreciated that.
Access to the hotel was not hard. In most reviews and I think in the hotel's website, they recommend taking the subway. But I have a bad back, so hauling my luggage around the subway was not an option. So I took the Airport Limousine Bus to Namba OCAT and then caught a taxi from there.

This hotel was expensive, but excellent. The view from the breakfast room is spectacular and I highly recommend the italian restaurant inside the hotel in the evening. The concierge staff are hugely knowledgable and very helpful.
This area contains the covered shopping arcade Jan Jan Yokocho, named after the “jan jan” sound of the stringed instruments waitresses traditionally played to attract customers to their restaurants. Originally frequented by blue-collar workers during the 1950s, it remains a destination for down-to-earth nostalgic dining. Also nearby is Tsutenkaku Tower. Considered by residents to be the symbol of modern Osaka, the tower’s observation platform offers city views from 91 meters above the street.
