We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April. While it is a bit out of the way from the main attractions, it is relatively close to the subway station and it is very good value for the money. The rooms are quite small but are very clean. We noticed a lot of Japanese guests (mostly businessmen) but the receptionists do speak English and are very helpful. Hot breakfast is free and is filling.

The directions on how to get there from the subway station could be more specific so I will try to clarify it for people who are going there by subway. If you take the pink (Sennichimae) Line, get off at the Awasa stop. Go toward exit #9, and walk up the stairs (note that if you have heavy luggage, the lifts are inconveniently located in the subway station so you will likely have to carry them up the stairs). After exiting the station, turn right and walk straight. After maybe a 5 minute walk you will see 7-Eleven at the corner. Follow the road around the corner and the hotel will be there on the right. On the hotel web site it says you can exit #3 on green chuo line, but we didn't do this as it looked more straightforward to exit on pink line. If you take the taxi, it's around 20 minutes from the JR Osaka station. However, make sure you print the map out from the web site. Japanese taxi drivers don't speak or read English very well and it will make it much easier if you can write/print out the address in Japanese or show a map as to where it is.

If you use their washer and dryer, note that the dryers do not do a great job of drying the clothes (after two 30 minute cycles my clothes were still damp) so you may be better off just hanging it to dry in room.

We choose osaka as base to visit Nara and Kyoto because there hotels were much more expensive. we had the jr pass for 1 week and kyoto was only 15 minutes. I am now so happy about this choice because both the hotel and osaka have been a great find. the hotel is not in the center, but very well connected to it by the tube. on the way from the tube station to the hotel we met the most amazing japanese restaurant. the second day we went there we already were big friends. the hotel room was ok, but the hot spring was amazing. it stayed opened until very late every night!!! very polite and helpful staff. I have been given some spa products as gift. free drinks at the vending machine in the reception during the night. highly recommended

We would say to any budget minded traveller that this is a great place to stay! Immaculately clean, super dedicated staff, 5 minutes from the subway station of Awaza, convenience stores very close by and a small restaurant on site. The rooms are very small and so if youre travelling with lots of luggage you may have difficulties however for a backpack and a rollerbag its fine. There are DIY laundry facilities on site too!

A great place. No telephones in the room. Breakfast is good. Hot springs are worth trying. There are 7 different kinds of pillows to choose from. Honestly, I got the best sleep as teh mattress is designed based on sound research in Japan. The hotel staff are courteous too.

Room Tip: You should try the hot springs
