Very comfortable stay, room had lots of details designed with the traveler in mind. Our family of 4 stayed in family room A. Room had a doorway for wearing shoes, and a closet near the doorway for coats. Bathroom is big with luxurious tub and a dry dressing area. Ample hooks in the room for hanging our clothes so that sofa area is free of clothes. Ample space for our bags and luggages. Even had ample charging stations with USB port for our phones. Our kids enjoyed the drinks station below. It’s a good idea for hotel not to provide food to save cost and pass the savings to travelers, as we could get food easily from convenient store or Dotonburi or Namba walk nearby. Love the decoration of the hotel. We had such memorable stay here.

have you ever seen the hotel's boss WORKING AND HELPING at the hotel? well this boss does. He even helps to bring your luggage to the nearest JR without climbing stairs. FREE drinks and pool table at the lobby, many language speaking staff! Rooms are excellently great and big, lots of space for luggage. Non-Carpet floor which is much better than other carpeted hotels and the beds are hella comfortable. The toilets have 3 sections, and has a bathtub! One bad thing about this hotel though, they don't have ice or hot chocolate at the lobby. otherwise, excellent hotel and fully recommended.

Stayed here with wife for a total of 5 days for Osaka Marathon and sight seeing. Love the warmth and friendly staff especially the owner that is always in action to get things in order. Room is very spacious by Japan standard, clean and well insulated from outside noise (near an elevated highway). Location is strategic near subway and bus terminal and most importantly walking distance to Domtobori. We struggled initially to get to the hotel from Kansai airport boarded the Nankai line airport express. Could not locate exit 25 or B4 as per the instructions given by the hotel, not knowing we were at Namba Station (should have looked for Namba walk with exit 25 or B4). We took the Airport limo bus on our way back via OCAT. This is certainly a better options. In summary,

I thought all the rooms in a budget hotels in Japan are small, not enough space for you to put your luggage without stepping over it. But not Hotel 88, it is so spacious that our 2 large luggage’s were properly put in the side and still had a lot of room/space to put our shopping bags yes BAGS from 4 days of shopping and roaming around Osaka. I would definitely stay again in this hotel.. not to mention it is in the middle of Detonbori district.

Wonderful hotel the best location. You’re right in the fringes of Dotombori with only 3mins walk to right in the middle of the best of Osaka foodies. Only 2 years old since Reno and still kept as new. Rooms in Japan are pretty small but Hotel88 rooms were good size for 3 adults in one room. Toilet, bathroom and basin were all separate so no 1 person is hogging the bathroom. Very clean and fresh. All you can drink hot and cold beverages including soups In the lobby. Free pool table and 24hr self serve laundry. Very well decorated lobby, lounging around area and rooms. And only 8mins walk from JR Namba train station. I recommend this hotel even if you have to commute further. Loved the staff even with limited communications staff were well trained and friendly for advice.
