Smoke smell”

Even though we were staying at a non-smoking room, we could still smell it from time to time. Especially in early mornings, it was as bad or worse than some smoking rooms we've stayed at. The room also has bad ventilation so no way of getting rid of the smell. It was difficult to breathe.

Great hotel with great location”

Breakfast provided, excellent service, clean room

The hotel location is considered good, considering the price that we pay and it covers breakfast. It is within walking distance from the main shopping area and is next to the Sakura subway (if I do not remember wrongly). The staff is very friendly. The room is small but clean and comfortable. The breakfast spread isn’t that fantastic but the taste is superb, according to my friend. I’ll definitely recommend that place to anyone who is considering going to Osaka for holiday.

clean, friendly stuff, breakfast

The hotel is conveniently located near Sakuragawa station, which is close to the Minami center Namba. The room was quite new and very clean, which is very important to me. They served a variety of local food for breakfast, and there were Asahi newspaper and manga books in the lobby for those who like to read. What I like the best is their service, very typical Japanese-like professional. Overall, I enjoyed my stay there very much.

nice but...”

price: In relation to other hotels where we were hosted the price is very high and unjustified. Location: The hotel is located in the NAMBA area, a 2-minute walk from SAKURAGAWA Train Station. Around the hotel are restaurants and a very large supermarket. Only one stop from NABA train station, Osaka's main railway station, is a central location in Osaka. The hotel area is very nice for walking and impression. The room, the cleanliness and the facilities: clean and shiny. In the cramped little room, the double bed is very small and uncomfortable. Very small bathroom and shower. It is amazing to see the design of the tiny shower that contains a bathtub, a large toilet and a sink. On the second floor is an ice and ironing stand. The hotel staff: polite but not effective. When I booked the room on the Internet, I asked for directions to the hotel and the staff did not bother to respond to my call. As a result, and despite the proximity of the place to the train station, we found the place after half an hour of running around.
