A very nice hotel

I have stayed at this hotel at 17-22/1/2015, for a 5 day trip at Osaka. This hotel is exactly at the Namba Station. I think the location of this hotel is excellent, I can easily found it even this is my first time trip to Osaka. Many department store is nearby such as Takashimaya, Namba park and 0101. every time when I finished the shopping I will return the hotel and unload before the next stop of sightseeing, shopping or dinning, it's just perfect for me

Great location, great staff

It was a memorable and comfortable stay for me and my 66-year old mother. My mother had a minor medical emergency, and the hotel could not have been more hospitable. They gave us the expected budget for the medical expenses and they sent a wonderful translator with us (Wada) to the hospital. Wada facilitated our entire hospital experience which was smooth and as painless as possible. I would definitely recommend this hotel to Osaka travellers!

Excellent location for sightseeing and shopping

Stayed 2July to 4July 2014. Twin room is slightly bigger than Queen bedded. It has a sofa bed that can sleep one adult. Paid 5500yen for extra bed. Hotel room view was good, request for high floor. Good toiletries selection with room slippers and robes. Only that there is no complimentary water provided hence the 4 stars for amenities and value. Namba is the most happening place in Osaka. Hotel is directly above namba subway, Nankai station and Takashimaya shopping mall, opposite OIOI City Shopping mall, across the street to Ebisu shopping street and Namba shopping street, Shinsaibashi and Dotoburi. Near to toy shopping - Den Den Town, 100Yen shop, kitchen street千日前,Food Market 黑门市场 (cheap and fresh seafood with seating area), Starbucks, McDonalds, 24 hr eateries. 5 stars. Staff speak good English, kind and have initiative and even provide a Breakfast map with opening hours. Fantastic service. 2 very good Raman/Fried Rice shops opposite hotel: 四天王 and Ippudu 一风堂. Arriving by Shinkansen, stop at Shin-Osaka and transfer to Midosuji subway Red line to M20 Namba station. To access Kansai Airport, take Nankai private train Airport Express. JR Osaka station is bit far from this happening place at Namba Osaka.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

July is their Sale season. Gu, H&M, Zara are all on sale with good discount. Shinsaibashi is a good area for shopping. July is a rainy season too. Buy transparent umbrella at 200 to 300 yens at Daiso or 100 yen shop nearby.

Great Hotel in a Nice Place

Had a wonderful time in Osaka, made possible by the friendly staffs of the hotel. The unfading smile on their faces and their willingness to be of service always. They give you directions on how to go to their tourist attractions. Aside from that, the accessibility of the hotel from subways, and other mode of transportation is really good. There's also tons of shops around.

Fantastic Osaka break

THE most convenient place to stay in Osaka--the location was perfect for travelling around the city, due to the railway and Subway station being directly underneath the Hotel. The staff were the most courteous, helpful, and friendly staff that I have ever encountered. I would highly recommend the hotel for a satay in Osaka

Be careful about tax returns--I was told at the shop where I bought an expensive watch, that I could get a tax return at the airport--not so--no facility--it should have been arranged at the shop

Lovely room and decent size. Lots of good eats nearby at reasonable prices. Best of all, direct train from airport to the door step of hotel, literally.

Honeymoon for young couple

Location was so convenient and staff were so friendly! Everything is just around the hotel (shopping street, restaurant, shopping mall, subway etc..) We ordered room-service near 12midnight and the kitchen is willing to prepare a specific meal that is only available during dinner time (before 11PM) as stated in the menu. We were impressed by the service and the friendliness of the staff! We book the Swissotel Nankai as our last hotel for our trip and departed from here to the Kansai Airport. There is a Airport Limited Express just below the hotel, and the English speaking staff brought us directly to the station, together with our luggage. Its so convenient !
