The hotel's location was excellent, within walking distance to Dotonbori. The services provided were also great. However, the self-check-in and check-out system gave it more of a budget hotel feel. In terms of environmental practices, the hotel follows a policy of not changing the linen unless requested. This is appreciated, as it promotes sustainability. However, it is important to note that if you wish to have your linen changed, you need to call the front desk by 9 am. We had a late wake-up and called the front desk at 9:30 am to make the request, but unfortunately, it was rejected due to the late timing. It would be more flexible if special requests could be accommodated even if they are made later than the specified time.

Perfectly located for the hundreds of restaurants and bars in Dotonburi, we really enjoyed our stay. Rooms are compact and there’s little storage space, but this is compensated by the bed - possibly the biggest I’ve ever slept in and very comfortable. Breakfast is a decent mix of Japanese and Western, with plenty of fresh fruit too. A big plus is the free hot and cold vending machines available from 1pm to midnight in the breakfast room. Loses a star for charging an additional ¥1000 an hour for check in before 3pm, which we felt unnecessary as the room was ready, but recommended nonetheless.

I must say before I checked in I thought it was just an ordinary hotel. But after checking in I was astonished by the many good qualities this hotel has to offer. Location is perfect, right next to the Dotonburi and shinsai bashi areas. The staff and very friendly and helpful. Rooms and the surrounding areas were clean. It looked more like a premium styles accomodation but good value for money. They have the option of having a joined room if one needs. Wireless is free and I tested the speed it was a whopping 45Mbps download speed. Unlike most rip off Aussie hotels that falsely advertise as free wifi then charge after 10min of usage this connection doesn’t get shaped. One key highlight of this property is that you get free flowing welcome drinks and snacks between 1pm to midnight. Breakfast is served on the first floor dining area. I don’t think they serve lunch or dinner there but you will find tonnes of places to eat nearby. During the buffet breakfast you will find a mix of both Japanese and western food. The drink machines serve a variety of drinks ranging from cafe latte., mocha, milk tea to matcha green tea either hot or cold. Other varieties are available too such ice tea etc. Not many hotels do this other than some places in Phuket and Taiwan. The dining area is a perfect place to sit down and rest while sipping your cup of coffee. Rooms may be compact but they maximise the efficiency of the room. Meaning you will find all your amenities in the right spots and easy to reach. You won’t hear noises from the busy streets outside. TV is smaller and no google chrome-cast capabilities but they show most of the Japanese channels. Honestly no one really watches tv when you are on holidays. Additionally I didn’t know this but they do offer a free airport pickup from Kansai airport. You can check with the hotel on this but I did see this on YouTube. Overall this hotel is highly recommend if you are looking for palace which is value for money and a perfect location.

I was supposed to book my family in another hotel but am very happy that we decided to switch to this hotel. It had all I wanted in a simple hotel, without the unnecessary luxuries and frills of 5-star hotels: (1) Impeccably clean and comfortable rooms and vicinity. Rooms may be small but we got a connecting room package composed of 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each which was perfect for my family of 4. Building structure is modern and the design allowed lots of spaces and parking areas around the building so it did not feel cramped. (2) Great location that is very close to the center of action in Osaka. Only 3 mins walk to Shinsaibashi Suji Shopping Street and Dotonbori (Osaka's gastronomic center), and yet was located in a block that was far enough from the crowded and noisy areas. It was easy to go back and forth from the hotel to the shopping/dining areas. Further, it is only about 7 mins away from the Shinsaibashi Station so commuting to other areas was a breeze. (3) Free drinks, soup and light treats at the dining lounge from 1 pm to midnight everyday. It was always relaxing to hang out and take some refreshments at the lounge after a long day of shopping and sight-seeing. (4) Friendly and accommodating staff. All in all, it's a modern, well-kept, cozy and delightful home away from home. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Osaka.

The hotel has a good location. Reception staff are kind and accommodating. Breakfast is plentiful and tasty. BUT as Kev P reviewed below, housekeeping leaves a lot to be desired. Upon lying down in bed , I saw the blanket had dried gum stuck on it. it was so gross!(check photo below). Likewise, they made th bed very haphazardly and just dumped the used pajamas which I forgot to put in the laundry box on the bed. I could not believe I was in a Japanese hotel. I hope they improve their housekeeping. I transferred to this hotel after staying in Hotel Vischio by Granvia in Umeda to be closer to Dotonbori . Now that hotel was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting this hotel to be better due to a higher rating in trip advisor but it was such a let down (housekeeping wise).

Nice stay, helpful staff. The rooms are good and we really liked that Pola line of creams and shampoos etc. Could do better with having mugs and selection of teas, creamer and sugar in the room. Also breakfast could have a better selection of fruit. Otherwise very centrally located near Dotonbori.

I 'd like to share my recent experience with this hotel. To me hotel should rate based at least 3 categories: design, cleanliness and services. It does not have a closet, you have to hang your coats and outfit on the wall, the bed sheet is only changed every four day, that leaves your room a mess. They don't clean the room or make the bed, they just change the new towels when you drop the used ones in the basket, if not they won't replace with clean ones. In Vegas the bed sheet is changed every other day or everyday on request, but even when it is not changed, the room is still cleaned up and the bed is made. Here they don't change the bedsheet and won't clean the room and won't make the bed. It was a terrible experience, especially it s a hotel in Japan where cleanliness is a priority.

This is a great place to stay in Osaka. Staff are very nice, desk staff speak some English. Rooms are spacious with a contemporary design. Breakfast was simple but tasty. Found the hotel very clean. It’s right next to one of the crab restaurants with a neon sign visible from the room but the curtains are excellent and the room was really dark. The location is great with heaps of restaurants nearby and an easy walk to shinsaibashi and Dotonbori. We would definitely stay again.
