“Great place to stay in Osaka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2011

Just to reiterate what everyone else has said the Cross has it all - nice decor, great service, close to the subway and an amazing location - smack dab between good shopping and the always interesting Dotonbori, which has more dining options that you can shake a stick at. Compared for what you pay for something similar in Australia, it is a bargain!

Corss hotel is centrally located right in the heart of shopping, eating and entertainment in Osaka. Hotel is a bit on the pricey side. Rooms are a bit tight but this is expected as its common in japan hotels. Service is excellent. Hotel and rooms need a bit of upgrade as there are signs of wear and tear. I highly recommend this hotel.

This review is long overdue yet well-deserved by the hotel in question. Guys, if you hate walking but the wifey loves shopping, you won't find a better located hotel in all of Osaka.
Look for Daisuke at the front desk. He's very efficient and helpful with advice :)

Firstly, the hotel has a modern design with a predominance of reds and blacks (vampire glam, some may call it) which some may hate but others will appreciate. Everything is CLEAN though, as in spotless. The rooms in contrast, are an angelic white and though small, everything has its place. Think luxury cabin on the Space Shuttle :) Beds are comfy and the showers are a joy to use, plus, you WILL be tempted to bring home the smart toilet!

Secondly, the hotel faces Midosuji Blvd, which means you wake up to a semi-busy yet tree-lined street. Now, as I mentioned earlier, location, location, location. Just BEHIND the hotel though is the main shopping area in Osaka, the extremely long Shinsaibashisuji. The wifey and/or you can shop for days to your hearts content. Just
BESIDE the hotel is the main eating area, the restaurant packed Dotonbori. You'd need at least a month to try all of them! Our recommendations include any place with Okonomiyaki and the noodle houses with the dragon on top :) Skip the wagyu, you'll go broke filling your belly! Don't bother with the free buffet breakfast either, go out! Enjoy!

Only problem is, with all the temptations being in a 5-15 minute walking radius, we didn't feel the need to explore any other part of the city. It was only when we took the shuttle to the airport on our 6th and last day that we realized how big Osaka actually was! Oh well, have to go again, I guess... ;)

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We also stayed at the Swissotel on our last night in Osaka and we wished we had stayed at the Cross Hotel instead! The Cross Hotel is clean, modern, new and the design is very cool. The standard double room is small but big/comfortable enough to chill out in when you need a break from all that shopping! The location is fabulous for food, shopping and an easy walking distance from Namba Station. Will definitely return.

The hotel is brand new, lobby is small but they are extending it. Breakfast excellent! The rooms are nice but small if you have 2 big luggage and 2 handbags. The bathroom is huge! it has shower and bathtub and they even provide a plastic stool! Which is great specially when you convert the bathroom into a steam room! Great for the skin and for colds since i was sick at that time. The toilet is sepreate from the shower room, so you can do toielt and brish your teeth without disturbing your roomate who is taking a shower.. The toielries giveways are very helpful. Shiseido is the brand they use for liqued soup, shampoo, conditioners, pretty cool! Hotel dont have Wifi and cant use your ipad inside the room, need laptap as they only have LAN connection. The location SUPER GREAT for shoppers! in the middle of shopping! Front street are lined up with branded shops like Prada, LV etc and the back street are lined up with local & international brands! Also with second hand stores! Imagine you can buy a HERMES BIRKEN so easy! Lots of restaurants, cake shops, noodle house and more. A haven for shoppers!
