The train station just located beside of the hotel. There is 2 restaurants right opposite of the hotel main entrance and 1 right beside the train station. All restaurants nearby the hotel was good, they have vending machine at every levels! The design and interior design of the hotel was abit old and the room is big!

They don't speak English!!!. We had difficulty communicating in English with the staff. Overall, the hotel is well located. The hotel is near Namba Station and Dotonbori area. There are commercial areas, supermarkets, convenience stores, subway station and post office. The room needs renovation. Very disappointed when we asked if we could pay with VISA at hotel restaurant, they said...

The hotel room is ok. Bed and pillow are a bit hard but nothing catastrophic. Many japanese hotel have the same confort. The price is really good and the situation is perfect, very near the metro station. The staff is ok except ONE woman at the front that was very unpolite. She clearly shows that she doesnt like her job...

I stayed at this hotel last week(2016/12). It is located just near Nagahori-bashi station of subway and so convenient for visiting. But I walked from Nihonbashi station because I wanted to see the scene along Sakaisuji-street. It took around 20mins from Nihonbashi station to the hotel on foot. There are many restaurants and shops along this street and it is...

I initially thought the place was small, but now having moved on to another place, it's comfortable enough for those with luggages. Pros: location is right next to a train station, reasonably close to one end of Shinsaibashi, eco option at the hotel is a good way to get some bottles of drinks Cons: none that really matter to me

The hotel location is great the staff are superb but spoke very little English. The room is just ok according to Japanese standard sizes. Still using typical keys for the rooms that you need to return to the front disk every time you go out. No drinking water in the room and no safe deposit box. But the real worst...

Staff was friendly and the location was convenient. Biggest drawbacks were the fact that the place is very worn (stains everywhere) and that the beds were the hardest that I slept on while in Japan (including futons on the floor). Ok for one or two nights.

“Request for non-smoking room directly with hotel if required, don't rely on the booking agent.”

“Location is perfect for guests that don't want to be too far away from stations. You can easily get here even with luggage. The famous shopping areas are very accessible from this hotel, but if you prefer to stay within a few minutes' walk from the hotel when you shop, you can check out the Nagahoribashi underground shops!”
