We stayed at business hotel namba for 4 nights in a twin room. It is relatively big for a business hotel room. However, the room may feel a little more run down but still it is comfortable enough for a good rest. The hotel isn’t very near the station but there is a donki store nearby. The free breakfast was also sufficient for me as there are breads, mashed potato salad, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea and orange juice. However, the menu does not change. It is also compulsory for you to hand over your keys to the front desk.One thing to note, there is also 2 steps at the main entrance and there is no slope. Do take note for luggages or wheelchairs if necessary. With such a great price for the rooms, we had a great stay overall.
We enjoyed our stay here. We were here for 5 nights in April. The area of Namba in Osaka is great, so much close by, like restaurants and the attractions as well as Namba station which is one of the main stations in Osaka. The hotel is in a good part of Namba, close to everything. Room was a big size for Japan. Comfty bed and good bathroom with a nice shower. Reception was helpful though there English wasn't great except for one nice man who was fluent. Breakfast was a boiled egg, mayonnaise and a selection of rolls. Overall a good hotel.
Booked a single room. Clean and comfortable but in need of an update. The room looked unchanged since the 90s. Bathroom will be uncomfortable for larger guests. Hotel staff was great and the hotel is located near shops and restaurants. It’s also close to Dotombori. Breakfast was pastries juice and coffee.
Business Hotel Nissei is nestled between buildings at the edge of streets full of food, with nearby Don Quijote and Kuromon Market, and Dotonbori is just a few minutes walk away. Namba Station with Midosuji Line (Red) to Umeda Station, the Kintetsu Line (Blue?) leads to Nara, and the Hankyu-Kyoto Line (Black) will basically take you anywhere you need to get to, like Kobe, Kyoto or Nara. The hotel is a little older, and one quick comment is they should update their carpets. I know the cleaners go through the rooms, sanitize the toilets, change the sheets and towels, but just the 'age' of the rooms is visually evident. At times, you can hear other guests in the hallways, but I couldn't really hear other guests in adjacent rooms. Overall, I knocked out at night, and woke up when I woke up--no one woke me up early with banging or talking. The rooms are a little tight, but I've been in small rooms in Japan, so the price of this hotel is still a deal roughly $10 to $20 cheaper than comparable, newer hotels with just as much space in their rooms. The private bathroom was also a bit small, so if you're bigger than 6-feet-tall or larger, it's a tight squeeze. Just keep that in mind if you like freedom in your room. The plugs do take US plugs, but make sure you bring USB compatible plugs for your electronics--my room had roughly 3 outlets I could use. You also have a Japanese staple--a pot which boils hot water, and a green tea packet. I got bowl ramen from Don Quijote at least once to try it out as a late-night snack and it works great. Also, the fridge can be loud, but they leave a message to turn it off at night to make sleeping quieter--my drinks were still cold in the morning, so this was fine. Beyond this, the staff is always respectful and professional, some of them even recognized me after the second night. You do leave your key at the front desk when you leave daily, so bring your I.D. just in case. There are vending machines for soda, cigarettes, and even beer. They also have breakfast available roughly 6:30 to 9:30 am, which includes boiled eggs, potato salad (using delicious Japanese mayonnaise), coffee and orange juice, and wrapped breads. It may seem simple, but this definitely shaved off time I'd usually spend hunting for breakfast, and makes the value a little extra. I generally didn't need to eat until after lunch or early dinner. As noted, Don Quijote is to the west of the hotel, open 24-hours, and a great spot for anything you may need or want from omiyage gifts, cheap clothes, expensive items, soda, food, alcohol, etc. That store is truly an iconic staple of Japan. To the East, North-East is Kuromon Market for those of you who are more brave when it comes to eating--you can find wet-markets with fresh seafood and meats being grilled. This was my breakfast spot during Winter and Spring for oden--vegetables, egg, etc. boiled in broth until super soft. North-West is Dotonbori, which is the most packed, crowded, and visited place in Osaka. It's a bit much overwhelming just to see, especially on a weekend at night, there's just so many people moving shoulder to shoulder to see, shop, and eat. It is an experience to say the least. So overall, this is an older hotel, and some parts of the room are a little small, but it's also a great deal, filled with professional and helpful staff (they do speak enough English), and free breakfast added on.…
I stayed at Business Hotel Nissei in Namba a couple of times, the location is their advantage with easy access to Rapito and Subway. Service was great as Japanese standard. The room is outdated but in acceptable condition. The overall hotel is quite old, a little bit renovation is needed to make them more attractive.
Booked a single room via Agoda. Staff are nice. Complimentary beverage provided at the hotel lobby. Situated at the heart of Namba. Rooms are old and feels like it's been around for ages. Bed was too soft for me. Only suitable for an overnight stay.
This hotel is very good budget hotel in Namba, just only 500m from Namba station to hotel and 10mins walk to JR Namba. You can can go to Glico man by walk. Around hotel there’re many delicious restaurant, and Lawson not far from the hotel. Hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Small room and difficult to open your bag 29” in the room but in Japan this size is a standard for budget hotel. Truly recommend it!!!
The room is clean and tidy. The location is very good that very near the stations. The receoption staff is excellent that we brought a melon and they borrow the knife and plates for us. Furthermore, they received my parcels on my behalf and keep them when I check-in. I will stay here when I come to Osaka again.
The room is extremely small that we even can't open the suitcases, room facilities are old and dated. There is a strong smoking smell in the room and I need to use my air spray to reduce the terrible smell, we didn't report to the front desk as we only stay for 2 nights. There are also some positive points: Staff at the front desk are friendly and we can communicate in English. The location is quite convenient which only takes 5-10 minutes walk to Shinsaibashi.
Nothing special but it's clean, quite and close to a lot of the best places to see on Osaka. It's within walking distance to Kuromon Market, Namba Station, Dotonbori and a bit further but still close to Shin Sai Bashi Shopping District and Den Den Town. It also provides free breakfast which is nothing great but will suffice.
