Try to get out of the main tourist areas when travelling, it just feels more authentic. Easy check in, very spacious and well appointed roooms, 2 minute stroll to train station, and surrounded by great little local eateries. Its always great to have a microwave as the family mart convenience stores have the best meals to heat up when in a rush or late at night, luckily this hotel has one directly underneath on the street, although the amount of top notch eateries in the local area cater for your rumbling tummy.
Warm welcome and nice service. Room so cleanliness and have kitchen for cooking. Good bathroom and bathtub. But so noisy from the outside during the night time. They did not have any HANDY PHONE anymore. You shold be release your photo with handy phone for your all partner. Because that's was make me disappointed so much :(
Room is nice and spacious. Apartment type hotel. Fridge, microwave and induction cooker are useful specially when you're staying longer. Bed is ok, pillows are rather thin. Towels will not be change unless you request it and you have to pay 500yen. There's also a cleaning charge. Toilet and bath is nice. TV channels limited and all are in Japanese. Wifi signal is strong, stayed at 5th floor. No phone in the room. No free coffee or bottled water. For trash, you need to follow the instruction otherwise they will not collect. Location is 5-10min walk from Juso station. Many food shops and convenient stores in the area. Plenty of night clubs nearby. Over all, will definitely stay again if in osaka.
Perfect location for my wife and I. Close to rail station and plenty of restaurants / shops. Room was clean and spacious. Kitchenette was handy to have. Great value at this price. Will stay here again.
Room is spacious and clean but bed is not very comfortable (spring bed) and are aligned vertically. Travellers must also know the following: (1) rooms are not cleaned daily (they charge extra for this); (2) towels are not changed daily (or pay at extra charge)(3) no free water; (4) no phones inside so if you need anything, you have to go down the lobby and speak with them; (5) front desk officers change every 4 hours or so - there are generally no endorsements made; (6) most of the officers speak very little English and some are not at all friendly; (7) toilet papers are not replenished as well; (8) food accidentally left in the room are not endorsed - and are thrown away even if you are still in the hotel (we left the hotel, checked out but left our things. When we remembered what we left and came back for our things, the food were already thrown away in less than 3 hours); (9) area is generally not kid-friendly as it is near bars; (10) policies are not explained to the guests. The place is near Juso station (about 10 minutes walk) and food stalls - 7-11, Lawson, etc.…
We only stayed one night, and that doesn't seem like the model this hotel really suits. The staff were friendly and the room was quite large, especially by Japanese standards. The area is a little seedy, as it is on the edge of a red light district, but also quite close to a residential area that's nice to walk in. There were not many amenities outside of the kitchenette. The furniture was cheap and uncomfortable, especially the bed, and the towels were stained and scratchy. However, the shower and bath were quite nice, as was the layout, garbage, and recycling. This hotel doesn't use normal keys, but rather uses keypad locks with unique codes for each room. We took pictures of the lock code to make it easier to remember. It definitely felt safe, which could've been a challenge given the area. All in all, the location and amenities were average, cleanliness and furniture were below average, and staff and security were slightly above average. Would not rebook, but probably a good value for longer stays.…
Very close to the station, in a neighborhood that looks a little bit like a red light district, but very safe though (we walked by there at night different times and it was ok). The room itself was GREAT, lots of space, very nice bathrooms, comfortable beds, kitchen with everything you need to cook. The staff I the front desk was nice in general, but some of them could improve their knowledge about tourism activities. I only wish they had more room to keep luggage after your checkout. The price was great! Would go back, yes!
Considering that the price we paid was so modest, we have to say that our two-night stay at Minn Juso was very good value for money. The double room we had was spacious, spotless and elegantly furnished. There were even utensils and an IH stove top for doing your own cooking if you wish. The springs of the mattress were a bit too bouncy and squeaked a little, but the sleep was not uncomfortable to say the least. The location of Minn Juso is probably what may have reduced the appeal of an otherwise very good hotel. It is a couple of kilometres northwest of the Kita area which is the heart of city and where the Osaka train station is. To get to the hotel by public transport, one has to take either a bus from the Osaka station or a train of the Hankyu Kobe Line from Umeda. While the bus and train trips take no more than a few minutes, the bus services are not very frequent outside office hours while the fares for the Hankyu train trips are not covered by the JR rail passes or the metro and bus passes visitors may well be using. Minn Juso borders a red light area. While we didn’t come across any threat to our safety when returning to the hotel at night, at times we did hear from our room on the third floor bursts of raucous laughter and yelling from some people who sounded like having drunk too much. But again, for the price we paid for the very nice room, we simply wouldn’t quibble about such minor issues and were completely satisfied with our stay there.…
Very clean, spacious for Japan, helpful staff, perfect position, great value for money. I was a little worried before our stay on learning Juso was a bit of a red light district, but actually felt very safe here. It was a perfect base for touring around the Kansai prefecture. Would definitely recommend.
The rooms have really poor soundproof and it was very noisy from the neighbors. The only plus was that the room was spacious and enough to put our luggage. There was dirt all over the place and the filters from the air conditioner was never cleaned ! Never again!!!
