Wouldn't recommend
We have just spent two weeks in Japan staying at 5 seperate properties. This was by far the worst. I accept that it was a 3 star property, but the price was similar (if not more in some instances) to the 4 and 5 stars properties we stayed in. The location was fantastic! However if a hotel is going to be on such major cross roads it needs to invest in double glazed windows! We heard every car and every change of pedestrians crossing all night. The hotel play jazz music in the hallways near the lift area 24/7. This would be fine if the doors weren't paper thin and you can hear it all night too. The other investment could be blackout curtains. Especially as the sun was rising around 5am...removing any thought of a sleep in. You are also required to leave your key at reception whenever you leave the hotel. I'm more than comfortable with this arrangement, however in the four nights we stayed there we were only asked once to confirm our name...therefore I'm not sure how secure this really is. The beds weren't overly comfortable either, but then again most beds in Japanese hotels tend to be on the hard side. Again, I appreciate that it's a three star property and it does have some good features, however I wouldn't stay here again or suggest it to friends. I value these reviews, hence I've tried to be factual. I hope this helps.

The location is as good as Swissotel with the best price for quality. Although the room is quite old, it is comfortable to stay.

Perfect location
Location, well competent staff & room concept/size
It was a good experience coz we we're able to feel what it's like to live in a Japanese styled room/accomodation. Hotel location is the best, namba nankai exit 6 is right next to the hotel entrance. We'll definitely book again when we're in Osaka.

A good ryokan hotel.
1. Location is just perfect 2. The cleaning staffs are really perfect 3. View of the city
Overall it is a good hotel, but the receptionist could have been more helpful. We were asking about the attractions and we were handed several brochures. However, when we tried to ask for help, she was not very helpful. I do understand that she is not a guide but at least she could have been more helpful. By the way, she spoke English. And one little note, the ryokan room type is not good for people with allergies. The tatami matting floor has quite a bit of dust.
