Location: 5/5 Extremely convenient! I left Namba Station難波(north exit) with my luggage and walked straightly along the main road; just a few minutes’ walk off the main road. I took 10 min walking to OCAT express bus station for catching the direct express bus to Arima Onsen 有馬温泉(the latest bus departs at 14:50). Service: 5/5 All staff rendered their service...

The hotel is situated in a very convenient location - Dotonbori. Easily accessible from Kansai Airport via Nanhai Electric Train to Namba Station, then just take less than 10 minutes walk. Around the hotel are restaurants, shops and everything. The room is quite small, but I understand that this is normal for Japanese hotels. The hotel provides quite a lot...

A comfortable small scale hotel. Close proximity to airport and subway, pleasant service and clean room. We are a family of three and this room offers triple bed but as the room is so small there's hardly any space in the room other than the three beds, but all in all its not bad and the staff were all friendly...

Location: 5/5 Extremely convenient. Right in the centre of the city. Located in Dotonbori (food) and is within walking distance to Shinsaibashi (shopping). Easy access to all of Namba's train stations (subway, JR, Kintetsu, Nankai). Amenities: 4/5 Clean and sufficient. Nice to see that the showers have improved since the renovation. But don't expect a big, luxurious room. Service: 5/5...

For a budget hotel it was a cut above the average. They offer a few extras like free noodles from 5pm-6pm, late night ramen and late night beer and wine for free. Room was very clean and comfortable. Great dining nearby in Dotonbori. Breakfast at the hotel was cheap at ¥800 and great value
