The location of this hotel is superb: right next to Namba Station with a line to Kansai Airport, department stores close by and Dotombori a short walk away. But it was worth staying at for more than the location. The staff were pleasant and very professional, with good English language skills. The hotel's common areas had little touches to soften...

Look, we only stayed one night as we were flying out the next day. It was our only experience of a traditional Japanese hotel. The kids loved it - the thought they were having a tea party. The beds were extremely comfortable. The front desk was easy and offered advice with maps and rail system. The location was spot on...

Superb location. Hotel is diagonally opposite Takashimaya and linked to Namba Sunway. Take exit 6 and you will find yourself right outside the hotel. If you have luggages with you , I'll suggest that you take exit 5 as there's an escalator to bring you up as exit 6 only has stairs. As the hotel is located in Namba, you...
