Stayed 6 nights. Good location, within walking distance to JR Shin Osaka Station (East Exit) as well as subway. Friendly staffs who are most willing to assist to make your stay and travel a breeze. The room is surprising big for a single person. Free breakfast provided which is a plus. Will stay again next time i visit Osaka/Kyoto.

VIA INN is a good choice for tourism and business in Shin-Osaka. We stayed this hotel for four nights. Advantage: (1)Great location and free breakfast~~ (2)Guest rooms are comfortable~~ (3)Staff was friendly~~ Defect: You may hear the sound of the railway in the room. But it is not disturbance to us.

The station is very close to the east gate of Shin-Osaka station, about 2 min walking. But there are not many restaurants close by. Though there is a 24 hours convenience store. The rooms are small but functional. Only a few staff at the hotel speak English which was a big issue. Breakfast was included which helps.

This hotel is fairly convenient located - within easy walking distance to subway station, although can be a little hard to find for foreigners. Room was clean and fairly modern, more suitable for business or solo travelers. Families might find the rooms a bit small.

Located close to the East Exit of JR Shin Osaka Station. The room is very tiny and the facility is very basic. The room temperature is very warm even though we turn down the heat. As the hotel is very close to the rail track, we get the noise from the trains passing by. They offer the free breakfast and... More

If you have a layover in Osaka, need to be near to the Shin-Osaka station and are on a budget then this is a clean, well-located option. It’s a 400m walk from the Southeast Exit of the station and there are no streets to cross. Some rooms have views of the Shinkansen tracks if you are a trainspotter. The rooms... More

We have stayed in other Japanese business-style hotel chains before and we are so glad we discovered the Via Inn chain. This is one their hotels around the Shin Osaka area - the closest one in fact - and so easy to get to! Exit through the East Gate, down the stairs (or lift), go left and walk towards the... More

As others have said, this hotel is near to Shin-Osaka Station, which provides speedy Shinkansen and local train service to cities like Kyoto, Kobe and even Hiroshima. This is a big advantage over hotels in Umeda and Namba because an extra journey on metro may be needed if you travel from these areas to the above-mentioned places. The rooms are... More

As with all the Via Inns, this is a great hotel used mostly by Japanese business people. Clean, efficient, simple and very reasonable. This one is located just outside the south exit doors of Shin Osaka train station. Highly recommend for travellers who want a nice hotel that is not for show. Keep in mind rooms are much smaller than... More

“Be aware that you are BESIDE the train station so some suites look onto the tracks (and get noise). May want a street view instead.”
