Excellent value for money ”

It’s a very new hotel, location is good, close to JR station and metro. There’s a few entrances right outside the hotel to enter the lower ground connection street to JR and Metro. We stayed here for two nights in total due to our flight got cancelled twice by typhoon JEBI. Staffs are welcoming and can speak good English. There’s free coffee and tea in the lobby for waiting guests. We wanted to stayed there for three nights but the hotel was full during the second night, so we booked the OS Umeda hotel nearby, which the standard was very poor comparing to le frere monterey with similar price point. My relatives who will visit Osaka next month have rebooked this hotel for 5 nights two rooms,hope they will enjoy their stay.

Great Hotel with small sauna.”

Stay with Hotel Monterey Le Frere Osaka during our honeymoon. The stay was great. As of all hotels in Japan, rooms were small in size. However, the little onsen like area in level 3 was such a bliss to have after a long day exploring the city. Not to mention, the laundry area with dryer was saver from doing piles of laundry after a long vacation. Only fall back is the location, as it is a stone's throw from Osaka station. Will not be ideal if you are travelling with huge luggage.

One of the Best Hotel Experiences I've Had In Japan”

The Monterey Le Frere Osaka is one of the best hotel experiences I've had in Japan. The room is the biggest I've ever had and super comfy with all the normal amenities. The staff was super nice. The three elevators made going up and down a breeze. And the location was super close to Osaka Station and made it easy to travel around the area with lots of food/drink options nearby. Great experience.

Located close to red light district, but good security and very clean hotel”

I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Osaka, especially ladies travelling in groups. Though the hotel is situated close to a red light district, the area close to the hotel entrance is still very lively even at 11pm at night. It is also situated right next to a subway exit - which made us feel extra safe to get back even after dinner hours (11pm to midnight kind of time). There are two convenient stores right under, and many good local restaurants in the nearby area - opens til late, allowing you to grab some late night snack when you get hungry at night. The hotel also has a gate on each floor, making the rooms only accessible to hotel guests - this made us feel extra safe. The hotel is a bit of a walk by underground walkway to the Umeda and Osaka station, nonetheless still convenient to get to the major shopping hubs. One major drawback was that there were occasional ambulance sirens late at night, which echoed into rooms even on the upper floors.

Great public bath, but a bit of a walk from station”

I really loved the public bath, and that there's staff supervising entry into the bath (so not anyone can just enter - good for women travellers I think, as some other hotels just need a keycard to enter either gender's bath). Clean rooms too. I got the corner room for three pax, so there was plenty of space for us too. Bed and pillows were comfy for me. For those coming from umeda or Osaka station for the first time, might be easier if you look out for signs to the daimaru, and then the kitashinchi station/diamor mall. It's pretty much a 5-10min straight line walk from jr Osaka central gates using the underground paths, but it took me a while to figure this path out. (Osaka station is simply too huge). The closest exit to the hotel is exit number 11-43, and there is an upward escalator for single file, but you can take one of the other lifts in the diamor mall to ground level first if you have large luggage with you.

Best in Umeda for me. Definately go back again.”

The hotel is pretty new. My twin room has enough space for my big bag+many shopping bags. All facilities are the best. Walking distance from Osaka Station. The 2 "Not good" things for me are the Monterey group has many Monterey named hotels which make guests and even taxi drivers get confused and go to the wrong hotel easily. The map on the card should be revised. Also, it'll be super great if the hotel receptionist could speak better English so that we could communicate easier when guests need specific answers. Some of the staffs speak English quite well btw.

Great hotel, will stay again!”

Great hotel overall. Lvl 3 Onsen for guests was awesome, it has a sauna and is comfortable, which rejuvenated me after a long day travelling. They have staff who can speak English and multiple languages so you can be assured. The hotel is close to Osaka station (10-15min walk) but it is quite easy to get lost. Basically, whether you are at Osaka, Umeda or whichever station, if underground head towards Kita-shinchi station (tozai subway line), along the way keep a lookout for Osaka Ekimae 3rd building. Alternatively the subway exit you are looking for is marked 11-43. Be warned however that at night the area seems to turn into some kind of high-end businessmen hangout, with what appeared to us to be escorts and the like standing around street corners. Food in the surrounding blocks seemed to be higher-end so if in doubt just walk towards the Osaka station side

The room looks exactly like those in the photos. Grand and nice for the money you paid. Thanks to the reception staff who always try their very best to help even though their English is not so good. However, I encountered problem and took a long while finding the hotel from Osaka station which is huge. I think it will be good if the hotel can give a proper direction as to how to walk to the hotel from Osaka / Umeda station without the guest getting lost.

You will find it far from Osaka station if you have big luggages and young children. Take a taxi. ”

Stayed 4 nights. It is accessible from Osaka station (south exit) about 15 mins walk through the underpass. It was very difficult to find the hotel as Osaka station is a huge station (many exits, many different lines, many different underpass intersections). Took me about 30 mins to find the hotel. Would not recommend if you have big luggages and young children (which i had). The 15 mins walk to hotel from Osaka station was also especially tiring for our feet after day trips to Kyoto/Nara. We were also often lost as the underpass are especially confusing as they look all the same when you are there. But the hotel was very new and the rooms were very comfortable. After checking out, I took a taxi for about 2000 yen from opposite the hotel (shorter route) to Shin Osaka station to avoid pushing my luggages through the underpass (no escalators for downwards direction) & to avoid changing platforms at Osaka station (difficult to move big luggages to different platforms (at different levels)

New hotel in Umeda area”

Hotel is 8-10 minutes walk away from Osaka Station & Umeda Sky Building. Right behind it is the bustling bar / nightclub district of Osaka. We walked around just to sightsee & people watch ---very interesting! It had Lawson convenience store & Sugi Pharmacy right on the building of the hotel, plus this quaint family-owned ramen shop a block away which were great for late-night meals! Breakfast was buffet style with good choices of Japanese & American breakfast fare, but they served the same things daily...onsen available on the 3rd floor free for hotel guests to use.

New hotel with good location”

The hotel is brand new and located in a really good spot with a drug store on ground level and convinience store next to it. Osaka/Umeda Station is about 10 minutes walk and thats basically Osaka CBD with shooping malls and big stores. Airport bus is about 10 minutes away and 1hr by bus to KIX. There are lots of pubs just right outside of the hotel and 30 minutes away from Dotombori. In rooom amenities are abundant although bathroom is small, the beds and pillows are comfy enough for me plus the room has good soundproof. If you are lucky to have a room facing the street, the view is quite decent (we stayed during christmas and one of our room can see street christmas lights).

Brand new hotel with the comfort of an international hotel”

The room we had was not massive by any standard but the view from the top (16th floor) was really good. Breakfast was really nice and varied, perfect to start the day especially with a young child. Amenities were overall nice although the internet was terrible at night (need a better speed when everyone is on it!). The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, organising my paperwork for the takyubin. The location is just about 5-10min walk from Osaka station and just behind Umeda where all the night club and bars are (but soundproofing meant you couldn’t hear anything). 11am checkout gets a bit mad! The onsen is a bit small but it has a proper finnish sauna room too which is fun! All in all, very recommended. We ended up extending our stay a couple of nights and the rates were really good (inc breakfast). Recommended for anyone who wants to visit Osaka!

New hotel, good location”

This was our favourite hotel in our Japan trip. Brand new hotel, very secure, clean, and hotel staff very helpful with good English. Close to kitashinchi station entrance (can walk underground to Osaka station). Lots of restaurants/bars in the surrounding streets. Just don't get it confused with Hotel Monterey Osaka!

Very Clean & Great Value”

The best things about this property were that the room smelled brand new and the front desk staff knew enough English to check me in without any issues. I stayed in a queen room and the bed was nice and firm and it was quiet at night so I could fall asleep. They have a nice buffet available for breakfast and dinner. The choices in food were mediocre. I’d recommend venturing out in the local neighborhood to try some local eats. I found a great little spot a block away and it was very inexpensive. The hotel is a slight walk from Umeda & Osaka Station but not too bad. Overall I rate this hotel as being a superior value for the money spent.

New and Spacious room, location is a bit far”

Staff are friendly and helpful! This is a relatively new hotel, the mattress & pillows are comfy, carpet is clean, as well as the bathroom. There is a local pharmacy located at the ground floor of the hotel building, and a couple 24 hours convenient stores nearby. The hotel is about a 10-minute walk from to/from the JR Osaka/Subway Umeda Station. I would come back to this hotel in my future Osaka visit and would recommend it to my friends.

Best hotel of our trip”

Japan is tough for hotels...they are very expensive and the rooms are usually TINY, especially in Tokyo and Kyoto. This hotel was different. It wasn't cheap, but it was much less expensive than the hotels we booked in other cities, but the room was GREAT. The bed was the most comfy we had all trip. The view was excellent. The AC worked great. The bed wasn't in a corner--two bedside tables! And the lighting was thoughtfully done and not harsh. Water pressure was not quite as good as the other hotels we stayed in. The location is in a hotel zone in the north of Osaka, near the main station. It was a decent location. There is a whole maze of underground pathways/shopping areas that lead you to the various stations nearby, so it was always fun walking through those to hit the metro or JR lines. We walked a LOT though. So if you're not into that, maybe stay more central or closer to a station. But it was raining in Osaka and we spent half the time underground which worked out great!

Good experience”

It was really a good trip for me in Osaka. Nice people and hotel there. The hotel is very close to the metro station. But it is hard to find it if you are the first time in Umeda because the transportation is complex. I lost my way everyday. But the people here is so kind. They even take you to the right station. Also the hotel is close to shopping malls, therefore it is convenience to shop:) I am looking forward to my next trip in Japan.
