The hotel is rather nice, having situated near the subway station and convenience stores.I'm rather surprised with their fair fluency of english too..Their free breakfast from 7-9am is also awesome, having to enjoy Japanese food there! Although the room may be small, but with that amount of price, I couldn't ask for more!

When I first got to Osaka I stayed in another hotel right downtown Namba. It was pretty nice. But When I arrived at Smile hotel I was pleasantly surprised. Things that were important to me: 1) Wifi. Most importantly for me, the wi-fi and wired ethernet in the room worked great. Lots of bandwidth and low latency. I'm typing this...

We stayed here from 3rd to 8th October. The hotel is barely 100metres away from the subway station - Sakuragawa station which caters to both Sennichimae Line (Pink) and Hanshin Railway. This hotel is not located exactly at Namba. It is 1 stop away from Namba. Hence, for those who wish to spend most of the time in Namba, Dotonbori...

The room freshness is Ok. Bed is Ok. Reception service is Ok. If I'm not wrong, I need to go downstair to use the Internet (with their PC). Breakfast is so so (but at least the breakfast is free for my room price!). The location is not a nice one (nothing around the hotel).

It is very expensive to travel by taxi, therefore i feel that when selecting hotel in Japan, the location is very important. This hotel is literally 1 min walk from the subway exit and it is just a station away from Namba... Front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a guy that is able to speak mandarin....

We really enjoyed our stay at Smile Hotel Namba. The entrance to the hotel is just outside of the Hanshin Sakuragawa Exit 2. Be aware that there is also an Exit 2 from the subway Sakuragawa stop. This will bring you out a couple of blocks away from the hotel and makes it much more difficult to find. If you...

The location is not that great since I have to take another stop to Namba, however, the hotel staff are friendly and helpful for all assistances. We did enjoyed staying for 3nights. The only suggestion is to have wifi in room due to now most of guest have table devices rater than pc.

This is a chain hotel. This is a business hotel. This is an average hotel. If you look for something cheap (~6000 yens/night for semi-double room), with okay location (one station away from Namba, or 15 minutes walk from Namba station where you can take the Airport shuttle, JR or Subway), full set of amenities, and with breakfast (simple western...
