Twin Room With Extra Bed Non-Smoking
Stayed 1 night in June 2019

Well-maintained and reliable”

Hotel Ichiei is clearly an old hotel but how it has been maintained and the quality of the service is still excellent and worth trusting. The room was clean, the resources provided were adequate, and there is a good view of the bustling city. Luggage storage on the 4th floor was an additional resource that cost separate but is very useful. The location is very ideal, as it sits across the city subway station and the restaurants and bars that surround it are of very good quality. It is a 10-15 minute walk from the JR-Namba Station.

Very good location, friendly and helpful staff. Both modern and japanese style rooms is a plus. ”

Fantastic location close to subway Namba stations. So it so easy for us to visit different places in Osaka by train. Nankai-Namba station is just across the road and we can get to Kansai International airport in just about 30 minutes. There is also a bus service outside the hotel to Atami aiport. Very short walk to Kuromon Market and Dotombori Area means we can conveniently do last minute shopping since Osaka is our last stop in Japan. There is a Japanese restaurant next to hotel reception for convenient breakfast or dinner. However there are lots of places to eat in Namba station and nearby shopping areas. I think the hotel is reasonably priced considered its location. We will definitely come back to this hotel when we return to Osaka again next time. Would be good if more mirrors can be installed in the rooms without changing the deco of tradition japanese style rooms.

Location was superb, has direct connection to the train station exit, and very close to Dotombori and Shinbashi. Room was large. However it was lacking in closet space so we had to keep our clothes in our suitcases for 1 week. If you take siestas you will not have a bed since they set it up at 6pm. TV only had Japanese channels. No coffee and bottled water.

Great location, hard to get to from subway.”

The location is amazing, if it is your first time is Osaka this is ideal. Make sure you use a lift or escalator up to the main road and head to the hotel from there. It is right across the bus station and taxi stands. Pleasant room, but a little dark, needed a few more lighting options. Breakfast was very authentic so we are glad that we paid for that. Staff was very helpful and got us what we needed even though it was quite late.

The hotel is diagonally opposite Nankai Namba Station (north exit). If coming by subway, it can be accessed from Exit 5 (with elevator) but need to cross a street. The hotel is right in front of Exit 6. Front desk is located on 8th floor. Although the room is huge, the furnishings are rather dated. There is insufficient lighting in the room.

The location was very good. easily walk-able to Namba Station and Dotonbori.Takashimaya is so near too. We chose the Japanese style room and it was big and comfortable, though a bit old and I was also worried that my kids (aged 2 and 4) would damage the paper sliding doors at the balcony. I peeped into the modern rooms and they looked great. I will definitely return to stay here again.

Location is the best advantage of this hotel”

The hotel is located just next to exit 6 of Namba station, and you can easily access either from Osaka Metro or Nankai Railway stations. Exit 6 is the closest, but you will need to use Exit 5 (with escalator up) if you have heavy luggage with you. The lobby is at 8F, and the overall vibe of this hotel is much darker in theme. We stayed in the western style twin bedroom (44sqm), the room is quite spacious with a pair of chairs and a table to get casual. The cleanliness is not exceptional but ok, one of the disadvantages is the lighting. The lighting in the room is not balanced, thus, the light around the casual area is sufficient, but there are no lamps above the bed next to the bathroom, making it difficult for packing luggage at that corner. There are decor lights but not sufficient. Ther receptionists are pretty courteous and helpful, and they understand English, so should be no problem for foreign tourists.
