If you wan to stay in Dōtonbori to shop and eat, just stay at this fabulous hotel! Tucked in one corner of Dōtonbori and within 5 mins walk to train - you can really walk back and drop your shopping stuff and go back Dōtonbori to eat and shop again. Lawson and 7-11 just 3 mins away. 1. Room is super spacious & feels really home- hangars on wall, hand soap, strong water, very clean everywhere, there's even branded humidifier in room! The bed is big and clean. Enough room to put 3 big luggage and still have room to walk around. 3. Staff - very polite and even offered us short ride to the OCAT when we have 5 bags 4. Hotel amenities - well stocked pantry with lotsa of water to choose at the lobby, though they recommend you not to bring the beverages back to room. of course the

Clean and fresh hotel located in a fabulous spot with easy access to the enormous Namba Station for both JR and Metro trains - walking distance to Dotonbori eating streets and Shinsaibashi shopping and cool cafes. The staff were lovely and helpful with drinks available all day and night in the lobby and cafe style tables where you can byo food, with a 7-11 50m up the road this was very handy. The rooms were well appointed with everything you need and even bedside multi usb chargers which made my kids VERY happy. I also used the laundry after 5 days travelling it was very welcome! I'd happily stay there again if i went back to Osaka.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful, no matter the time of day - helped us find our way to the station, even recommending the best route to take with large suitcases. The reception was manned at all hours, so always felt safe. Complimentary drinks all day were most welcome, especially in the hot weather - and the drinks area was good for sitting and having a snack too. The location is great - just far enough away from Dotombori so that you don't hear any noise, but close enough to easily grab some great food or do some shopping - great for sight-seeing! The room was really well thought-out, with lots of USB sockets for charging all your devices, a large bathroom and tub, lots of space to store and open up your suitcases, and a desk which can be used as a dressing

Second time here, this time as a family. I have to say, this place is perfect for our needs. - Big rooms - Clean and everything working - Great communual facilities which recognises most people will want to eat out or snack from convenience stores - Free drinks - Top notch service from the staff - Located near Dotonbori, Shinsaibashi and Namba. Highly recommended again.

Location is good, just 5 mins walk to mtr station and 10 mins walk to Shopping area. The room is clean and big enough (larger than average hotel in japan), free drinks in lobby and also free shuttle to OCAT station (need request in advance). The Staffs there are so nice, professional and helpful, they helped me to arrange a cake for my boyfriend s bday without any additional charge. I have a lovely memory to stay at hotel 88.

Dear Mr./Ms. Charmantha A Thank you for your heartwarming comment and perfect evaluation! We apologize for the inconvenience about breakfast. We want to help our guests have a better time in Japan. One reason is that you will find and be impressed by the charms of Japan that even Japanese people do not know. It is our pleasure to walk many distances and heal guests who have enjoyed "Japan" using their whole body. Anyway, we look forward to welcoming you again soon!

We were welcomed by staff who were fluent in English and also gave great recommendations. Our room (204) was sizable for Japan. It had a queen bed, a smaller bed,and a couch. It was nicely appointed. They let you borrow a smart phone for local calls and navigation. The toilet and shower are in separate rooms. Many USB outlets. We liked the room. Sleep quality was poor due to construction noise outside. The hotel was full so there were no room changes available. We were woken at 530am both nights we stayed here (We stayed in the hotel in Mid May 2019.). This was disappointing. There is no breakfast but there are plenty of places around. There is drink machine in the lobby which has some interesting choices. The location is great. 5-10 minute walk to metro. Only a

Dear Mr./Ms. catchginger Thank you for the great comments and evaluation. First and foremost, We apologize deeply for your sleeping problems. Perhaps due to the renovation of the building on the other side, if they were working in an insane time zone, we should warned to them. Also, We regret that we could not offer you a substitute room because we were full. If you have the opportunity to come to Japan next time, we would be glad if we had the opportunity to return gift. Once again, thank you very much for your comments. Yours sincerely, Naoya Kojo HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI

The hotel was conveniently located just a few blocks from Dotombori (just ignore the love hotels in the immediate vicinity). Clean and comfortable, the room was even spacious. Except stairs in the room would make it hard for anyone older or with a disability. Free bus transfer to the station was very handy with all our luggage.

Stayed here for an entire week and I would definitely recommend it. Staff: Staff here all speak English, and were able to answer pretty much everything I flung at them. Special shout-out to the manager, who arranged a free shuttle ride to the OCAT (bus station to go to the airport), and also to the staff who rode with us, and wheeled our luggage all the way into the terminal and directly to the ticket booth, and helped us purchase our tickets. Top notch service for sure! Location: A stones throw away from Shinsaibashi and Dotonburi shopping. (make sure you have Rikuro cheesecake and pudding.) As convenient as it gets, but not noisy. Probably a 5min walk to Namba Station. Rooms: extremely spacious for Japan. Also the only hotel in the world i've been to, that provides
