We stayed for 5 nights at Mimaru Shinsaibashi East - it was the largest hotel room we’ve ever been in Japan. The rooms were clean, tasteful, and they thought of everything - I especially loved that you could rent items like an Apple TV, UNO cards etc. They also gave you coins to redeem for little things like sake tastings and snacks which was very fun. The hotel is centrally located and surrounded by eateries, convenience stores and it’s around the corner from a 24hour supermarket - it’s a really great option for a family. It is a short 5 minute walk from the main Shinsaibashi shopping strip, and 10 minutes to the Glico man. I would definitely try to stay here again when I come back to Osaka!

I’ll start on what sounds like a negative note, but it’s not. I booked a Japanese apartment for my family of three adults (my wife and I plus 21 year-old son) and two teenage kids, 15 & 17. I wouldn’t recommend this style of room for a western family as it’s lacking in wardrobe space and all clothes have to be hung on rails. I knew that I’d booked a Japanese Apartment room and that the three kids would be on futons on the tatami floor. I didn’t expect it to be so small though, but that’s on me. Nothing that the hotel did wrong at all. The kids, however, loved the situation and really had great fun bedding down on futons.

The kitchen is what we’ve come to expect from Mimaru by now: There’s a cooking area and seating for six. It’s equipped with a hot plate, sink, fridge/freezer and kettle along with cutlery and plates for six. Sharp knives and chopping board, plus pots & pans under the sink. We didn’t cook in the room, but we bought in bread, butter, cereal and cheese for breakfast to fuel up before we started the day. There’s no toaster, but you can borrow these from reception for no charge (Mimaru hotels have a variety of what they call “rental” items but they’re all free to borrow). We got a toaster oven instead of a two slice toaster.

The TV is over the dining table in the kitchen. No lounge area. It’s a non-smart TV so we borrowed an Apple TV to watch Netflix etc. no charge for this.

Location is great. There are one million and three restaurants within a short walk. Dotonburi is about 10 minutes walk. Nagahoribashi station is about 4 minutes walk. Small supermarket close by plus the usual ubiquitous konbinis.

Unusual scheme on check-in where you get one token per person which can be exchanged for sake, wine, coffee or snacks. Extra tokens are 100yen each if you want to partake further. My kids loved the variety of snacks. No beer, which was a shame!

Mimaru staff are the usual wonderful people, the absolute making of this company. Maria and Aubrey (Chyuun) were usually on reception during our stay and always had a friendly greeting for us. I don’t like to single any staff out usually, (because, really, all Mimaru staff are fantastic) but Aubrey really did go above and beyond, writing us extensive notes/instructions on how to use a local quirky okonomiyaki restaurant and even giving us a contingency plan when a typhoon threatened to disrupt our plans. This is a lady whose day seems to be made by helping others and it was so nice to have someone who obviously cares so genuinely about giving guests the best experience possible.

Our next stop will be Hiroshima, where sadly we can’t stay in a Mimaru hotel as they don’t have one, but I can truly say this brand has made an epic trip unforgettable.

Dear Daniel B, Thank you so much for your detailed review! The 5-person Japanese-style room might be a little bit of a tight fit for five fully grown adults, as you said. But we are so thrilled that your kids enjoyed the futons and the room! We would recommend the 7-person room for your next stay at this location as it has futons, bunk beds, and two separate bedrooms. We are so glad you felt that your room was well-equipped! We strive to help our guests feel at home whenever possible, and it seems like you were able to settle into a kind of routine quite nicely. We do offer rooms with a built-in projector or guests have the option to use non-smart TVs and an Apple-TV borrowed from the front desk as you did. We love our convenient location, too! Supermarket, restaurants, convenience stores, and pharmacies all within a five minute walk is absolutely a plus in our books. We also love our coin systems! You are not the first person to be disappointed by the lack of beer in our servers and we will absolutely take that into consideration for future improvements in our hotel. We are thrilled that you enjoyed interacting with our staff and that you found them friendly, personable, and ready to help! MIMARU strives to give the best experience for our guests, and we are glad that we were able to make your stay with us special. We hope you love Hiroshima and that you are able to enjoy the rest of your trip stress-free. We also hope that you will stay with MIMARU again during your next trip! We would love to have you. MIMARU Osaka Shinsaibashi EAST Front Desk Team Aubrey (Chyuun)

Very comfortable stay for a couple of nights in Osaka. It's a little walk from the Shinsaibashi area where there are lots of shopping and food. Friendly frontdesk... and you'll get a coin per person to exchange for drinks or tidbits. No toothbrush and slippers are provided so that you'd have to bring your own.

We went on trip with my wife and my one and a half year son. The room was good as expected with the price. It was clean and was what we wanted.

Before checking in. We exchanged information with the hotel to enquire about the car park recommendations and asked for baby bath and damper bin. They responded promptly and mentioned the hotel offers one free 24 hours parking at a car park nearby.

Upon check in. The staff was unaware of such service. When we ask for car park recommendation. He replied he doesn’t know. He then provided us with 3 coins to use to exchange sake, coffee or snacks. When asked how to redeem more coins. He replied he doesn’t know. There was no baby cot nor diaper bin when we went to our room.

There was also no cleaning service during our 3 days stay except for clearing of rubbish. We were ok with it however this might not be what other people expected.

When we provided the receipt of the car park ticket to the front desk during check out. They mentioned it cannot be refunded as they can only provide the waiver of car park fee before we paid. We were not aware of this and this was not mentioned in the email nor explained by the staff. We were very disappointed with this arrangement. Realising there is nothing we can do we left after the payment and I was surprise they didn’t even say good bye when we leave.

Overall it left us with a disappointing but important experience for our trip.

The room is of decent size and amenities are good (bunk bed for kids, fridge and freezer, kitchen). However the coin laundry is open to public and is very packed at night. Quite inconvenient to queue to use the machines.

Room was a little small (for 5+1 of us), but good/warm. Supplies are good for toiletries and snacks. Daily room cleaning would be preferred. The staff at the counters were very hospitable (but no one at front desk after about 10pm - though they will respond when we ring the bell).

Very pleasant stay. Family of 5 for 7 nights. We enjoyed the quietness and the size of the room. The kitchen is fully equipped, we cooked almost every night with fresh ingredients from Daimaru and the like since we have very young kids and didn't want to eat out so much. Staff were very helpful in any way. And I like the fact that they have a coin laundry in the building. Everything we needed from a hotel is in here. I will definitely pick this hotel again next time.
