Traditional inside the crowded modern area”

i would never imagine that theres a good and quiet and good hotel in Dotonburi area, so the Hotel is located on the side of river on Dotonbori, you only have to cross the street to get all of the modern activity of Dotonburi (side seeing, hangout, shopping, eating, clubbing). i say the hotel is well facilitated, we choose this hotel to get a traditional experience of sleeping on the tatami floor, and bathing in the ryokan and feel the traditional Japanese room, and Yamatoya Honten provide it all. We're greeted with a warm towel and hot green tea at the lobby, sitting there with a beautiful few of the river, the lobby is not extravagant, but you can find Zen there, cosy and quiet, the staff is very helpful. The room we good is very nice, clean traditional looking room, very cosy and quiet, theres a bottle of water provided there, snacks, heater, hairdryer, fridge, toilet, tv, sink, they even provide yukata for us to use.

Best place to stay in Osaka!”

My friends and I had the most wonderful stay at this perfectly located ryokan. The locationw as what really drove us to choose this place, as the Dotonbori markets are literally a stone's throw away, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the accommodation and service provided at this modest establishment. The staff were very polite and friendly, the Japanese breakfast was a delight and totally worth the cost, and the Onsen provided much needed relief at the end of our busy touristy days. The rooms are spotless, and the river view from the 7th floor was also a great start to our mornings. We have decided to never stay anywhere else if (when) we return to Osaka. What a great experience!

Surprisingly good ”

We were pleasantly surprised. The 4 tatami mat Japanese room was excellent, comfy futons and the green yakatas were an excellent touch. The side sitting room was appreciated as was the little fridge and kettle. I imagine that the serenity is highly dependent upon other travellers, however it was quiet during our stay and the staff were welcoming.

Lovely traditional Ryokan, located in perfect place, right in the centre of Osaka, walking distance to the main sights. This was perfect, lively neighbourhood. A great experience and lovely and attentive staff. Only issue was no bathroom (just a toilet and a sink) in our room and showers were located in an onsen which was obviously shared with other guests so this might be a bit uncomfortable for some - otherwise great experience and great staff.

Great Location”

Pros: Great location, 5 minute walk from Dotonbori (a lively food and shopping area). Very friendly staff, onsen within the hotel (a bonus if you didnt get to experience an onsen whilst on your trip). Cons: My room smelt of smoke and the hotel staff were very understanding and deoderised my room. This didnt work so they tried it again. The second time didn't work either. So they moved me into another room, however were apologetic. I did have to pay extra as it was a bigger room, however it was only an extra $20 per night. It worked out in the end.

I made a mistake when making reservations, looking for a cheap room. I saw a comment about the bathroom, but did not think it was important because there is a general bathroom size. If I knew that the bathroom of this room was very small, I would not have reserved this discount room. I am a bit curious about the size of the other bathroom. The staff were very friendly and courteous. The location was also very good.

Ryokan experience in downtown osaka”

ryokan, japanese futon bed, complimentary tea & biscuits

Everything was comfortable. I only wish the hotel would ask our preferred timing to set or leave the futons, but still clean the room. The bathtubs could be better cleaned daily. The ryokan rooms may need better insulation to provide better humidity levels for the guests. The small room where the closet (to keep the futons) and the minibar has carpet which may need a change. Perhaps install modern bamboo mats or another version of tatami or whatever. The hotel could also provide practical hanging places for our coats or clothes in this small room. We've been to other traditional japanese rooms before, and find that the hotel room at Yamatoya Honten could be more practically designed.

Excellent and affordable Japanese-style room”

Comfortable Futon Bed and Pillow, Friendly and lovely hotel staff, Cosy.

It was our first night in Osaka, so we were all excited about staying in a ryokan, and Yamataya Honten fulfilled our expectations. I was a little doubtful about sleeping with just one pillow, but the futon and pillow were surprisingly so comfortable to lie on, I had a very good sleep indeed. The room was spacious, and I especially enjoyed the complimentary green tea and Japanese sweets. Front desk personnel were very thorough and helpful at all times, from assisting with our luggages to helping us with maps and recommendations.

Perfect location for Osaka travellers”

Highly recommendable for Osaka travellers. Hotel is located literally right next to Dotombori food street and relatively near most of Osaka's prime shopping districts such as Shinsaibashi. Nearest train station is also a few minutes away. Staff were very accomodating and the room itself provided an authentic Japanese house feel. The public bath is also lovely, perfect for my first onsen experience.

typical expectation of price paid vs hotel quality”

just immediate of outskirt of Dotonbori at affordable price, English spoken hotel attendants, free onsen!

This is a Yamato traditional style onsen hotel with Japanese looking rooms. Their price is affordable if compare to price of other traditional style ryokan hotels, as this hotel is aging. We don't really mind that so it worth the price especially it is just immediate outskirt of Dotonbori, very convenient. Hotel staff are English spoken, convenient for those who completely not understood Japanese language. One fallback is they don't provide water kettle, although they do offer to fill up hot water bottle in the room just by making call to reception. They provide yukata for wear to free onsen in the hotel so it is kind of fun. Overall this hotel worth the price we paid.

Best Reasonable Ryokan Experience!”

1. The Japanese Styled Rooms & Onsen 2. Location (3mins- Dotonburi; 8mins-Nippombashi Stn) 3. Reasonably priced & quality service

Very pleasing! The room is spacious and gives a very authentic japanese experience. Hotel is easy to find and the Dotonburi street is just 3 mins away!!! Our stay even includes a free kimono/yukata costume rental. I really love this Ryokan. But you have to request for hot drinking water every time and although they can understand and speak english it is still a little bit difficult to converse with them. Overall the stay was fantastic!

A spacious and warm hotel”

Very close to tourist attraction!

Yamatoya staffs were generally kind and it was quite spacious for one person. Bathroom was quite small, but it was okay as I enjoyed the public bathroom. It's quite close to the station. Public bathroom and yukata were not as cool as other ryokan-like hotels although they were still fine. A bit old building and no wi-fi in rooms were a bit uncomfortable.
