“Great Location,Gd service!”
Reviewed 16 June 2012

We stayed at Hotel Monterey Grasmere for 4N,had a twin room which is spacious and very clean.The view is great too!As for the location we loved the convenience of having direct access fr Namba Station fr the hotel basement and its just 5min fr OCAT where we took airport bus.The Foods supermarket connected to the basemt was very convenient too.We had enjoyed the stay and the early bird room rates made it very worth the value.We had definitely enjoyed our stay!

This hotel has excellent location because it is close to so many subway and train lines, and also to many shops and restaurants. We stayed here for 5 nights, and made day trips to Kyoto and Nara.

The room was small, but it was new and comfortable. With free wifi in the room.

We chose this hotel mainly because we arrived late in the evening, and would like to get to a hotel with the least hassle. The hotel website described 3 ways to get from Kansai airport to the hotel - airport limousine bus, JR line, and Nankai line. The number 11 bus is the most direct and you end up at OCAT right next to the hotel. ticket is 1000 yen on way or 1800 return.

We arrived at Kansai airport on AirAsia from Kuala Lumpur. Plane landed at 9.30pm. Last bus was at 10.25pm. We made it with time to spare, but we were seated row 12 on the flight and were in front of 200 people at the immigration line. So if you were seated way back, there is a chance you may not be able to catch the last bus.

The first bus out of OCAT Osaka to the airport is at 5.40am. We caught the 6.10am bus and got to Kansai Airport with plenty of time for our 9.40am flight.

We made a day trip to Kyoto. Use Hyperdia.com to find the best and cheapest way to travel by train. We leave Osaka after 9am to avoid the rush hour. Going to UMEDA sta, then switch to JR train at Osaka Sta to Kyoto. Total cost 770 yen one way to get to Kyoto.

We also made a day trip to Nara. Used the Kintetsu line that went directly to Kintetsunara station in Nara. Cost of 540 yen one way. Nara is compact, so you can walk or rent a bicycle to see the sights.

Namba Walk (the underground shopping area) near the hotel has many places to eat with reasonable prices. And shops too.

Highly recommend this hotel for all these reasons.

Firstly I should say that we only stayed here because we got 50% off the normal rate,which I think is quite common if you book in advance.
Pros
- An amazing view from the 31st floor. The rooms are all on floors 23-31 so this is pretty much guaranteed.
- Location. 1 min walk from JR Namba station and 5 mins to a fantastic eating area to the east of Namba metro station.
- Comfortable big double bed which was probably king size by western standards.
Cons
- Our room stank of cigarette smoke. When we asked to change rooms we were told it may be possible on our final night (of 4).
- A lack of personal service. Maybe this is more to do with it being a large business hotel as we chose smaller hotels and ryokans in our other destinations. The service wasn't bad, just impersonal.

Overall a great hotel at 9000 yen per night. Amazing and location, just make sure to request a non-smoking room if that's what you want.

A family of three with a 11-year old made our way to Osaka from 30th May to 2nd June.

We arrived KIX in the morning and took a limousine bus from stand number 11 at Kansai to OCAT which cost Y1000 one way and Y1800 for return. The journey took around 50 min. We arrived on the 2nd floor of OCAT and took an escalator to the ground floor, found the northern exit and there, on the right, is Hotel Monterey Grasmere Osaka.

Enter the hotel building, take a lift up to level 22 to the hotel lobby. We left our luggage with the concierge as the check in time is only after 3pm. Japanese are rigid and everything goes by the book.

Rooms are on the 23rd to 31st floor and we got one on the 30th. We didn't get a room with good view and did not make a fuss on that. Room amenities are the usual basic stuff and space is just good for one to move around. I would rather have good location than big rooms.

Kuromon Ichiba is a wet market that is around 15 minutes walk at the eastern direction of the hotel. Here you can get high quality seafood, wagyu & fruits. A worthwhile place to visit apart from the departmental stores.

Life supermarket is just next to the hotel, on the basement level. Opening hours are 9.30am - 12 midnight. At the food section, they will gradually discount the day's cooked food, sashimi & sushi, with mark down of 20% - 40% after dark, not sure what time they start, but when I was there at 8pm, some has already been discounted and grabbed.

Plan one trip in the day to cover Kuromon Market, Den Den Town, Nipponbashi, Sennichimae and Namba City and another one in the evening to cover Dotonburi, Shinsaibashi, Ebishubashi and America-Mura.

For breakfast, you can either grab some food from the Life Supermarket the day before or get into McDonalds at basement level of OCAT.

To get out of this area, the JR Namba station is just at the basement level of OCAT. One stop away and you are on the Osaka loop.

Recommended food are takoyaki from street vendors, okonomiyaki from Chibo at Dotonburi, yakiniku from Yakiniku Rokko at Shinsaibashi.
