Location – It’s easy to find, right outside of a municipal train station, down the block from a JR station and a short walk from a bus stop to/from Itami. The neighborhood is a bit worn down, but the hotel is near a DonQuijote and a Daiso in addition to being a short distance from Tenoji Zoo and other attractions....

The best thing for the hotel is the location which is really near the Shinimamiya station (covered by jr pass). For the room, you get what you paid. Really small and the smell of tatami is not good. There are only 4 shower rooms and we have to wait. But over all. Thats okay

I stayed here for two nights as a short weekend city break. The hotel is conveniently located at the Dobutsumae Station. Take Exit 2 and you’ll see the hotel. Check-in staff is friendly and efficient. Plenty of English instructions in the hotel. My room is a nice western room without toilet. There isn’t much space in the room but it...

I'll start off with the location, which is great. It's very close to the JR Shin Imamiya station and the Dobutsuen-Mae subway station is right outside the hotel lobby door, so getting to sites and day trips was seamless. The rooms, were very basic. The first room we were in on the 2nd floor (for 1 night only) which was...

This budget hotel is located in a bit of a sleazy but lively area where you can have food and drinks until late at night, all within walking distance of Shin-Imamiya station on the Kanzai (airport) line. We had a nice but small Japanese tatami room with a window we had to close during the day because of pigeons. The...

The group of cheap hotels near Shin Imamiya station are arguably the best value in Japan...Hotel Taiyo isn't much better or worse than any of them....it is hard to complain when you get a private room with a tv and a fridge for about $20 in Asia's most expensive country...there are some inconveniences of course...my floor only had two toilets...

Really easy to find, right outside the Dobutsuen-Mae subway station. Friendly and helpful staff allowed us to leave our bags before check in time. The hotel itself wasn't great. Was a basic Japanese room with tatami mat floors. The hotel was very loud at night and can hear doors slamming all down the corridor. The sound travelled really easily in...

We booked this hotel over booking.com where it is listed as "Business Hotel Taiyo". Well, no business here. Rooms are small, bad odor in it, not too clean, only four showers for the entire hotel located in the first two floors and the toilets are also common toilets. If this hotel would be advertised like it is, everything would be...
