This property sits right next to major express way and you hear all the cars going by all night long. Room had a strange unpleasant musty smell. I would not stay here again. It is close to the metro but so are a lot of hotels.

Dear Mr. Brad G Thank you for your comment. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by noise and smell. We did double-glazed window construction as noise countermeasure of nearby highway road, but we will consider further soundproofing measures. Regarding smell, we will further check the drainage, air conditioning and ventilation system to locate the cause. Finally, We will apologize deeply for this case again. And We really appreciate having comment. Yours sincerely, Naoya Kojo HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI

Location, Location, Lotion! A big asset for this hotel is its location. It's located in the Dontonburi part of town. Close to restaurants, bars, you name it. I was in town for a concert at the Namba Hatch and the hotel was located directly across the street from the Namba Hatch. I couldn't get closer if I tried. Also, close to a great underground mall that led to the subway station and a bus terminal. The hotel is in a great location! The room: I was impressed by the size of the room, it is big for a hotel room in Japan. Spotless room. Service: The hotel staff were great! Extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I couldn't of asked more from this hotel. I will gladly stay here again the next time I'm in Osaka.

Dear Mr./Ms. padcrasher Thank you for a wonderful comment and evaluation! As you are, we are blessed with a location. Surprisingly, our area will develop further from now. Activities that have never experienced and gourmet that has never been tasted should come out. We will grow to a more comfortable hotel accordingly. Don't miss it…! We hope to see you again in Japan. Yours sincerely, Naoya Kojo HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI

Hotel 88 was great. Lovely lobby and communal space with lots of quirky art, spacious rooms and good amenities. Good location with train 2 min walk, the tourist are 5 min walk away and lots of great place to eat (no food at the hotel but complimentary drinks). The area is amongst a few live hotels (rent by the half hour) but not at all a problem. The biggest recommendation was the great staff. We asked for a place to eat and the staff walked us the 5 min walk to there and when we left they walked us to the station a 10min walk to the one we needed. Highly recommended.

Nice, large room. Close to subway and all the busy-ness of Dontonburi. It was a little hard to find at first but turned out to be in a good location. Loved that there was a good sized laundry room! The service at the front was very good and the staff were kind and helpful.

Dear Mr./Ms. petrinabranch Thank you for a wonderful comment. Did you enjoy your trip in Osaka? It is a pleasure if our laundry room or service was helpful for your trip. Japan has a different charm depending on the season. Unfortunately we were suffering from typhoons and disasters this year, but we are convinced that next year will be a wonderful year. Let's meet again in Japan! Yours sincerely, Naoya Kojo HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI

The hotel is situated in a good location. Less than 5 mins walk to the underground mall that leads you to Namba station. There is a family mart within 2 mins walk and Don Quijote is less than 10 mins walk away. Just across the Don Quijote is where the action is (Glico man, Dotonbori, Shinsaibashi, etc). Hotel is near all the love hotels but it is not a rowdy or sleazy area. It's safe to walk in the middle of the night. The room is clean, not much of a decor but it's fully equipped including USB ports. Room size is very decent and comfortable too. Quite roomy if I may say. There is also a Handy phone which one can use for wifi/basic navigation. Lobby also provided drinks 24/7 (coffee, tea, soft drinks, soup). Overall I would say the hotel is ok for the price for the we paid

We were the only Western tourists there, interestingly enough. Location couldn’t be better, next to metro, America-Mura, dotonburi etc. No breakfast but 24 hr beverage bar in lobby and coin laundry. Rooms are good, decor in hotel is strange so “vibe” is a bit unusual. We were stuck in Osaka due to a typhoon so felt a little like we overstayed there but this was a pretty good base.

Dear 495gabrielas, Thank you very much for your kind review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed staying with us. As you mentioned, we are conveniently located in almost the center of Dotonbori area, so we hope that you had a variety of experiences which made you excited by walking around here. In the meantime, we are sorry that the typhoon hit Osaka during your stay. This year, the weather has been a kind of strange and we have had a couple more typhoons even after the one of July. That would be wonderful if you could consider us as a place to stay for your next visit to Osaka. We would be absolutely happy to welcome you back then. Once again, thank you very much for choosing us. Warm Regards,

We booked a four person room at Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi. There were two beds which felt like 1K and 1Q. It was a very clean, roomy and white room with a TV and mobile cellphone which allowed you to make unlimited free local calls and calls to nearby area like Taiwan and Hong Kong. The bathroom is standard but clean with toiletries. The lobby floor had free drinks such as coffee, tea, juices, and soda. Furthermore, there were little couches, coffee tables, and chairs to relax in at the lobby floor. This hotel was at the corner of a weird little street that did not seem very populated. But just few minutes walking would bring you to Dotonbori street. The staff spoke decent English. They were very helpful in instructing us how to get to places using the metro. No meals were provided.

Dear Mr./Ms. RanchTraveler Thank you for the wonderful feedback and evaluation. Mobile phones called "convenience" in their rooms can make free calls to six countries including China. While maintaining the quality of cleaning and the quality of service, we are working on revising the price of the room. By solving the requests of the guests and the problems we found, we will grow to a better hotel. We are looking forward to seeing you again in Japan. yours sincerely, Naoya Kojo HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI

Booked a superior twin room through Agoda.com. Definitely large enough for four people. Wifi worked well. Free drinks, microwave, pool table and massage chairs provided in the lobby. Staff spoke English and were helpful. Great location, 5 min walk from OCAT and Less than 5 minutes walk from the Namba Station Appreciated the “Handy” phone provided in our room which can be used around Osaka as a GPS. New Water bottles and new towels were hung outside on the door knob in a black bag on days we didn't need cleaning. First time I have experienced such hospitality in a hotel. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel. Many thanks to Ricky, who helped us get to Osaka station with all our luggage!

Dear Mr./Ms. SmoothTravel101 Thank you for a wonderful evaluation and feedback! We are very glad that you are satisfied with our facilities and services. We mention a bit about Ricky, he is our boss, he sometimes visits Japan. He will take guests like you to the destination free of charge. However, he is so busy and he can not do the same kind of hospitality for all guests. The traffic situation in Osaka is very complicated. Even Japanese, perhaps few people uncomprehending it perfectly. We will guide as much as possible in the mother tongue of each guest, or accompany the destination if the destination is close. We are a small hotel and a few staff,but like you, it is our pleasure to be pleased with our hospitality. Let's meet again in Japan! Yours sincerely, Naoya Kojo HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI

Located very close to Dotonbori this hotel is really the perfect place to enjoy Namba Area. Hotel lobby is cozy, visitors can enjoy the facilities like pool table (free) or just drinks coffee or tea at the launge. The staffs are also very nice and helpful. When we wanted to go out and it was rain, they immediately offer umbrellas and gave suggestion to visit some good spots. Room is spacious, when we stay there we choose a three bed and it is very convenient. Water and other amenities are provided, wifi is very good and one thing that we loves is the USB plugs are available. Bathroom and toilet are separate and they are clean and tidy. We were enjoy our stay and this is a recommended hotel.

We were there about 1 hour before check in time. The staff kindly allow us to do early check in, which we really appreciate. Staffs were extremely helpful throughout our stay, providing information we need for our trip. Convenient location, near to train station and Dotonbori. Room was spacious, well maintained and clean. They even have air purifier. Comfortable lounge to chill with free drinks, green tea latte was awesome.
