The Best Hotel”

Ark Hotel Osaka Shinsaibashi is the best hotel among 3 hotels i stayed during my 14 days trip to Osaka, Kyoto & Tokyo. The staff is super friendly, polite & helpful. One of the staff has tried her best & never give up to help us to book the Kaiseki meal at Kyoto even she is not so fluent English speaking, i and my family really appreciated for the kind assistance. They have fluent English speaking staff as well, so there is no worries for English communication. Excellent service & environment. The room is spacious if compare to others hotel i stayed. Room is clean & tidy, the blanket is super duper comfort & soft. The Nagohoribashi Station exit 3 & 4 is just located at left & right of the hotel with just 1 min walking. So you have 2 choices for station exit. Hotel is nearby dining area. Definitely will stay again for next visit to Osaka. Great hotel.

Great Shopping Trip”

Close location to shopping district, internet in room, restaurant and subway nearby

I enjoyed staying in the Ark Hotel Osaka Shinsaibashi. It's a 5-10min walking distance to Shinsaibashi/Doutonburi where all the shopping malls are location. The subway station is just right next to the hotel. Easy access to the rest of Osaka city. There's also a 24hr restaurant opposite the hotel, it's a plus point for those who likes midnight snacks. 7-11 is also nearby across the street if you want a lighter snack. Hotel staffs are helpful. However, the queue for check in at 3pm can be quite long if you are going on a high peak season. There's internet in all rooms.

Thank you for making our stay restful!”

Efficient customer service (especially of particular front desk staff), easy access to subway train, walking distance from main shopping District/ close to a variety of restaurants

I was pleased with the service provided by Ark hotel! It is located next to Nagahoribashi stn and just half a km away from Shinsaibashi stn. It is a mere 10 minute walk to Dotombori shopping district, as well as an underground dining and shopping area Crysta Nagahori (great when it’s raining). Ask the front desk for English maps of the Osaka train network, as well as establishments within the vicinity of the hotel (Japanese restos, groceries, convenience stores, banks, Uniqlo, H&M, Tokyu Hands, Daimaru, Starbucks, etc.) The front desk staff was especially friendly, efficient, and accommodating. We loved Osaka! It pretty much has what Tokyo has, but without spending as much.

Ark Hotel”

Quite new and very clean
The toilet was small

This is a great hotel for the price. It's just on the edge of the shopping and restaurant area, which makes it a little quieter than the other hotel I stayed in when this one was fully booked. I would highly recommend this hotel within the 3 star bracket of hotels in the Shinsaibashi area. It's right next to the subway line that takes you to Osaka Castle and one stop from the line that runs to Osaka/Umeda station too. This would be my first choice hotel in Osaka next time I go there.

Strategic location near metro”

We booked this hotel because of the location. It is right at the exit 6 of Nippombashi station. Unfortunately, when we arrived in Osaka, our hotel was run out of electricity due to typhoon jebi. We had to move to another hotel for one night .. like 15mins walk apart. The following night, we have to shift back to Ark.. that was the only hiccups.. other than that, this hotel room was quite big compared to std Japan hotel room. They even provide good toiletries such as shisheido facial wash. Hotel located nearby to Dotonburi where u can get almost everything there. I truly enjoyed our stay.

Pretty Good Value for the Price!”

I would compare this hotel to the Japanese APA- small and efficient. This hotel is actually a bit bigger in rooms than the APA- so that's great. The Ark hotel is in a great location! There was a nice 'deal' if you agreed to not have the sheets changed everyday of your stay- you could get some free drinks- so that was a bonus. The mattress is the typical Asian mattress- very firm. The pillows do leave a lot to be desired (maybe this is Japanese style!), but this is a small annoyance. Overall, this hotel gives you more space than the competition (APA) and is clean and tidy. I would caution if you were coming on a business trip and NEEDED very strong reliable wifi. The wifi in our room was not strong and didn't work for maybe 50% of our stay. (I suspect this was due to so many people using the internet at the same time.) Overall the slow/lagging wifi wasn't an issue for us, but if you needed internet for work it would be a problem for you.

Attentive and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable room. Awesome location as it is within walking distance from the main shopping areas.

Ark hotel is one of the cheapest non-backpackers hotel that i could find in the area. The room was clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast was awesome, with a wide selection of food and drinks (especially tea). Will definitely go back again. The main shopping area at shinsaibashi and namba is just within walking distance.

WILL DEFINITELY STAY AGAIN FOR LOCATION”

Clean hotel. Some floors were refurnished (the higher floors). The lower floors were not. We stayed on first 2 nights in Osaka before heading to Kyoto, and then stayed 1 more night again before heading back to Singapore. Not much facilities in this hotel. But OSAKA was hot when we were there in September, so you wouldn't use much of their ONSEN even if they had it. In Japan, the train rides can add up to quite a substantial sum. Taxis are too expensive as well. But this HOTEL was near the shopping area (Shinsaibashi and Dotonbori, 10 min walk to the start of the shopping street of Shinsaibashi). Of course, if you walk from one end of the shopping area to the other (aka Namba Station - Takashimaya) you may feel too tired to walk all the way back, though its just a 14 min walk. But you can take short breaks along the way, get a drink, get street food like TAKO BALLS in the small alleys (to make the journey back seem shorter).

Easy access, convenient, comfortable!”

Convenience stores and F&B outlet within 2 mins walk; Clean and comfortable room; Subway service just round the corner of the hotel!

I most definitely enjoyed my stay here. Booked two rooms and both were clean. Rather spacious for Japan's standard of rooms. Family Mart and 7eleven are both within walking distances from Ark. 24hr Yoshinoya is just across the main entrance - great news for the foodie! The subway is just 5 steps to the right of the hotel's side door. It's easy to get to the airport by subway - though you will have to change at Tengachaya Station to the Kansai Airport Line. Walking distance to Shinsaibashi-suji and Dotomburi, which is also near to Ebisubashi-suji. Lots of shopping to be done! Check out for Uniqlo's flash sales to get your steals. For the cometic fanatics - Shinsabashi is the place to be.

Great Just Unfortunate”

Was unfortunate that we stayed here during typhoon Jebi. Unfortunate because Ark hotel lost power (other hotels in the area did not) and unfortunately this lasted for 2 days. This may be beyond their control and it is very likely that the management tried their best to remedy this. Kudos to the staff for handling the situation so well. They remained calm throughout the ordeal and despite some angry and anxious travellers. If the power outage did not happen, would have been nearly perfect. Very close to a train station, a short walk to Dotonburi. Small but ok. Thank you though to the staff of Ark Hotel.

Location
Small room size Expensive (in peak)

Ark has a really handy location, being literally right next to an entrance to Nagahoribashi subway station. Just catch the Nankai train to Tengachaya station and get off, hop on the subway to Nagahoribashi station, then get out at exit 4. Turn to your left, walk one step and you're in front of Ark. The hotel is also an easy walk to the Shinsaibashi shopping street. When I stayed there the rates were expensive, but this was much to be expected as I visited during the New Years' period. The rooms are quite small, but so are many of the hotels in Japan.

comfort, convenience, cleanliness

For Japanese standard, the Semi Double (Non Smoking) Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable for mid-size people. The location of the hotel was definitely a plus since a subway is just right beside it. There are a lot of restaurants (Yoshinoya, other local restaurants)in the area. If you love to walk, you can reach downtown area by around 20minutes or so. The receptionist/hotel attendants were helpful and communicates in English too. Overall, we had a comfortable stay at Ark Hotel.

Great Value and Location”

It's right next to Nagahoribashi subway (Exit 4) and walking distance to shinsaibashi shopping district (5 mins). The hotel room is a decent size with good service.

Spent a wonderful 3 nights at the Ark Hotel. I am so glad I made a last minute change with Agoda and chose this hotel instead. It's so convenient to get to from Kansai Airport and for sightseeing around Osaka. Hop onto a train from Kansai to Tengachaya Station. Then change to the subway and go to Naghoribashi station on the brown Sakaisuji line. It takes less than an hour in total. If you fancy visiting Kobe, Nara or Kyoto,(all 3 if you like) buy a Kansai Thru Pass at the airport station. This pass is for 2 days or 3 days and allow you to use buses, subways and trains (not JR). Great value! The only thing I need to say was the wifi was not working properly while I was there. However, if you need to go online, just go down to the lobby.

I spend 4 nights and everything was perfect. Count staffs are so kind and they are good at English too. You can ask anythings about your trip of Osaka. Another amazing thing is the cleanness. They made up the bed and clean the room perfectly everyday. The most wonderful thing is the location of the hotel, accesibility from the main fun area. You can easily and shortly access to the Namba or Osaka stations. I defnitely sure that i will recommend this hotel to my friends and i will revisit the hotel again when i visit Osaka. Thanks to the hotel which gave me a good memory of Osaka.

Fantastic saviour!”

I was staying in a horrible Airbnb and was looking for last minute hotels around Namba/Shinsaibashi area. The closest and best alternative I had was this hotel, which was literally 5 steps away from Nipponbashi subway station. This hotel is located at Exit 4 of the Train station. Location is fantastic when taking train. It takes about 12 minutes to walk to Shinsabashi area, a straight road down to the bustling area. I was able to leave my luggage there prior to check-in and there was welcome drink free for all to refill and drink at the reception area. The room was small, albeit cozy. The pillows used were traditional japanese pillows with beads but had the sheets over it. Although, we could feel the springs of the bed, it was still comfortable! Toilet was clean and amenities provided were immaculate . Staff was very friendly and helpful. Greeting us every time we walked past the reception area. Highly recommend to all!

It was a nice experience! ”

We really enjoyed our stay in Ark Hotel. It’s very accessible especially when we want to go to places. Also, it is near the train station which makes it easier for us to travel around Osaka. I’ll definitely recommend this to my family and friends!

Great stay”

I was recommended by a friend to stay at Ark hotel, and I stayed for 2 nights every things was great, the room is a typical Japanese size small but good enough for a solo traveller, breakfast is awesome, friendly staff and location is pretty good few minutes walk going to Dotombori and down the hotel is the metro station..And so many local restaurants nearby. Highly recommended!

Ark Hotel Osaka”

Cleanliness, comfortable, value for money

My stay here was unexpectedly good! Despite that we had to carry our baggage on our way here in a bad weather in Osaka, the comfortless and the facility of Ark Hotel Osaka made us forget that bad experience. It was comfortable, we surprisingly got upgraded room with the same price, we really enjoy our stay here.

Walk! A lot of Walking... A bit far from shinsaibashi 15mins”

There is a station beside the hotel and good part there is an elevator on the nagahoribashi station exit 4 accross the hotel if your luggage is big! Its a bit far from shinsaibashi shopping and dohtonbori (15-20mins) convinient store is a bit far around 7 mins. The only problem is we requested for a non smoking but apparently they won't let us transfer so we don't have a choice but to deal with the smoke to the hallway and rooms to a nonsmoker its smells bad and 2nd hand smoke is much worst and bad for our lungs. The staff in the lobby knows how to speak english and will help you if where do you want to go. The room is considered big for 3 people bed is big. you just need to walk a lot if your going to shinsaibashi, dohtonbori and kuromon market is 1 station away. if your using a station this would be the perfect hotel make sure to buy ICOCA Reloadable card (this is the same as passmo and suica from Tokyo). It will be easier if your going to kyoto or Nara for ICOCA
