The hotel is very conveniently located at the heart of Dotonbori and also near Kuromon Market. Rooms are clean and cozy. The staff are welcoming and friendly. There is free ice cream, cup noodles and alcoholic beverages in the lobby daily in the afternoon. I will definitely look this place up whenever I am in Osaka again.

I booked this hotel because of the location and mainly because of their funky statue in the front entrance. I was able to check in my room before the check in time which was great. They offered a lot of freebies which I love, but you do have to be back at hotel by a certain time to take advantage of their offerings. They provide free bike rentals, but it was hard to use it since the streets are a bit busy and a lot of things are walkable already. They also provide free pocket wifi to use during your stay. They also have free cup noodles, sake, beer and ice cream every night. I believe it starts at 5-9pm. They have event night to, something for the kids to do and they have kimono night as well do you can save on kimono rentals. I like how they have a scale so you can weigh your luggages. Unlike most hotel rooms where it’s more of a square or rectangle space, I kinda of think the shape of my room reminds me of the letter M. It’s definitely a workable space and is big enough to lay out 2 middle size luggages. the bathroom was a bit small and I’m 5’2. If you’re 6 ft, I think you’ll struggle to stand up in the bathtub because I felt my head wasn’t far from the ceiling. They are an ecofriendly hotel. I stayed for about 3 nights and they cleaned my room once. They do offer water and towels every night. I did notice one strand of hair at the corner of the bed, which wasn’t mine since I didn’t even use the bed yet. Other than that, the room was overall clean. They had 2 windows in my room so I was able to get fresh air. They have a very old air purifier in the room as well. I like how they have a lot of hooks so you can hang your clothes to air dry. They also have this string you can extend in your bathroom so you can hang clothes to dry there as well. The bed wasn’t overly soft nor hard and the rooms were quite. The staff didn’t greet us as much, but they were helpful if you need help or ask them questions. before you leave make sure you give them a post on IG, you’ll get s prize doing it.

Great location as it’s only a couple minutes walk from the dotonburi canals. They also have quite a few events during the evenings where you’d get free flow beer, sake, ice cream, cup noodles, and some mini events/ games to keep guests entertained while they take a rest after walking through dotonburi. There’s also a massage chair free for use. It’s also a location where you can send your luggage to another hotel (black cat transportation). Downside was that the rooms were rather dusty and the pillows weren’t the best. For the price, I guess it’s a pretty good deal.

I spent 1 night in a single room at the Dotonbori hotel for which I paid just 7150 Yen. The room was tiny even by Japanese standards (the only place I could fully open out my suitcase was on the bed). The "pod" bathroom (a bit like a ferry cabin or some Ibis chain hotel bathrooms) was a little tired, and I suspect the carpets may have been fitted when the hotel was built), but the range of included services and snacks, and helpful staff made up for it. Slightly odd nightwear in the room - not a proper yukata, a sort of odd cross between a nightshirt and overgrown baseball shirt with buttons down the front, as well as (of course) slippers! The usual range of toiletries, toothbrush etc in the bathroom. Having done an evening Osaka tour, I arrived too late for the free ice cream and beer, but claimed one of the last free ramen pots in reception in the evening. The lounge area felt more like a convivial hostel lounge than a "just sit here until my taxi arrives" posh hotel lounge - no bad thing! Tea was also available. I'd completely forgotten my room rate included breakfast, and was very pleasantly surprised by the wide selection of food the following morning. While there were cakes, pastries and western-ish hot food (scrambled eggs, some sort of sausage, even a pasta dish) I went for the Japanese breakfast options including grilled fish, rice, miso and 2 helpings of the delicious asparagus in sesame sauce. There were pickles, noodles, even sushi if you wanted. The next morning after checking out I was able to leave my suitcase with the reception staff while sightseeing in Osaka, rather than having to pay for a locker at the station, and picked it up before heading to the station. A budget hotel providing better services than many more upmarket options, in buzzing Dotonbori.

Short walking distance to the main shopping street and Namba train station. Many convenient stores and restaurants around the hotel. Staff at the reception were very helpful and friendly, Housekeeping staff did a good job to keep our room clean every day. There is a daily happy hours at lobby where the in-house guests could enjoy free drinks, tea, ice-cream and also free cup noodles during the night. We stayed 3 nights in Standard Twin room 18sqm, sufficient space for two persons with big suitcase (king-bed room has only 13sqm size). Unfortunately, bathroom is very tiny, we are quite tall persons, so we hit here and there while using shower facility. Also, sound insulation is not vey good, we heard people talking at the corridor during the night time which is so disturbing.

My husband and I stayed at the Dotonbori for two nights and it was a nice, pleasant stay. The hotel is in a great location - close to tons of shopping, restaurants and the metro, and very easy to find with the large statutes. The hotel is very well kept and clean as are the rooms, however, the bathrooms could use a facelift, but that wasn't much of a big deal for us. They also offered snacks, such as ice cream, soup, drinks, etc. during the afternoons which is unheard of at hotels, especially at this price point. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Overall would definitely stay here again.

Dotonburi Hotel is walking distance from the Metro train lines and you can walk to the JR line (Namba Station) - however it is only 280 yen if you get the Metro. The hotel is located perfectly for access to food, shopping and night-life. The free inclusions with this hotel are better than any other hotel i have stayed at. Free WiFi, Laptop hire, free drinks in the lobby, free mini bar re-stocking, massage chair, free ramen and beer at night and free pocket Wi-Fi to name a few. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Will be staying here again next time i am in Osaka. Highly recommend.

This hotel is perfect!! My husband and I wanted something within walking distance to all the food and shopping and this was perfect!! The rooms are on the small side but we had some of the best sleep of our life!! Loved the free raman, beer and wine(at 10:30pm), breakfast, bikes rental, portable Wi-Fi, and free drinks in the room. Actually the absoluest best are the massage chairs in the lobby and the bamboo in the room for massaging your feet after walking all day. They also have scales for weighing luggage if you plan on doing a lot of shopping. Even though the hotel is very basic decor it really sets itself in a higher class with all the special touches and staff! Great job to this hotels staff for making our first stay in Osaka so memorable!!!❤

Access from Shin-Osaka by JR lines requires 3 different trains. Easier to pay (280 Yen) for the Midosuji Line on Osaka City Subway from Shin-Osaka straight to Namba Station (take the Exit 25 and when on the street do a 180 turn, walk ahead and take the 2nd left. Hotel will be down on your left. If you go over the river you are lost. The Hotel has magnificent pillar statues out the front which are so unique to see in Japan. They represent the faces of Asian, Western, African and Arabian people. The Hotel rooms are very small, very small showers, clean and the cost is probably not that cheap. Notwithstanding that they provide free wifi, laptops, bikes, coffee, tea and even mildly alcoholic drinks in your bar fridge. There is a lot of construction noise happening when I was there in February 2020 from the next door building which is being demolished or renovated. The main foyer is a meeting place for hotel guests as well as Groups attending conferences there. Outside food is allowed in the front foyer meeting area (first time I have seen outside food almost welcomed). You can get coffee and tea there as well as access to free computers. If you walk out of the hotel and turn right, you will be in the middle of Dotonbori proper. If in Osaka again I would definitely stay at the Dotonbori Hotel.
