88 hotel shinsaibashi”
we have just concluded our osaka vacation for barely a week. it was my second time in osaka and i can say that from my first trip there i was quite familiar with the area around dotonbori and shinsaibashi. i could have picked accommodations that was more familiar and i would have deemed nearer dotonbori/shinsaibashi area. i was glad to have chosen 88 hotel shinsaibashi instead amongst the other more popularly known hotel around namba city. i would say 88 hotel shinsaibashi seems more of a boutique hotel rather than the usual hotel that offers all facilities that one usually has. although, just like a regular hotel, complimentary water and toiletries gets to be replenished everyday. the best complimentary service that they have is their open bar (all drinks you can for non-alcoholic beverages ex: soda, coffee, juice, matcha or oolong tea, calpico, etc.) it is open from 6am until 12 mn. they also have 3 massage chairs which are most welcoming going back to the hotel after a very tiring tour at the end of each day. another advantage of this property is that since it is just a medium rise structure, the access to the elevator is very convenient and each floor only has 3 unit so overcrowding and long waits for your turn seems not be an issue. in terms of cleanliness, in our 8 days of stay at that hotel, each day that we came back to our room it was always impeccably clean. on its location, it is very convenient since it is a five minute walk to dotonbori/shin sai bashi area and a minute walk to an entrance of "the walk" an underground shopping area and has access to all the train lines within the namba station. lastly, my review for the hotel's staff should be written. they are very accommodating and courteous as expected from japanese and they speak English. i believe that in every trip, communication amongst different nations is very important because it can make your trip very comfortable.
Dear Mr./Ms. Eugenio It is such a wonderful comment as a travel reporter wrote. We deeply appreciate it. It seems that your trip to Japan was a good memory. Did we help with that? Our ideal is not to "addition" us to memories you made in various places, but to make better memories by "multiplication". We hope that you will come to Japan this summer again! Yours sincerely, HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI Naoya Kojo
My hotel of choice in Osaka! Highly recommended!!!👌🏻👍🏻👌🏻👍🏻👌🏻”
I would definitely stay in Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi when I go back to Osaka. The hotel is very close to Namba train station. It’s also few minutes walk to Dotonbori. There’s also a near 7 eleven in the area. All the staff are very accomodating and helpful. They will really make your stay comfortable. One of them even went with us to Namba station on our first day to make sure we don’t get lost. On our way back to the airport, they brought us to the train station with their van for free, because we got loads of stuff to bring. The hotel is very clean, the staff are all very accomodating and willing to help. They also offer free drinks from 6am to 12mn, its a vendo machine- coffee, tea, soda, choco drink and even potato and corn soup, which is a big thumbs up for us tourists! They also have a 3 massage chairs in the common area near the lobby, how cool is that! Staying in Hotel 88 really made our trip even more exciting!
Thank you very much for your stay and nice evaluation. We are glad that you are satisfied with our facilities and services. We will continue to work hard to continuously improve and create a better staying environment for everyone.We are looking forward to seeing you again. Hotel88Shinsaibashi Xu
Excellent location and staff”
Hotel 88 is just a 5-minute walk from the busiest area in Osaka, the Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi spot, but strategically located to avoid the noise while resting. Daily commute is also very convenient as it is just a 5-minute walk from Namba Walk where you can hop to several subway and train lines, not to mention those restaurants and shops you will pass by where you can grab some food and stuff at a cheaper price. Staffs also communicate well in English, they would even try to give you certain instructions on the best routes you could take based on your itinerary. Would like to special mention the hotel's director, Christy, in which she was really consistent on making us feel at home by making small talks everytime we arrive at the hotel or during our coffee session in the lobby. The only negative side I have experienced was when they refused to grant my request for late checkout at 12nn, and even made me pay ¥2,000 for 2 hours extension.
Dear Mr./Ms. Antonino Thank you for your warm comments and evaluations. The indications you give us will lead to our growth. There are four seasons in Japan, each with its charm. Cherry blossoms, scorching sunlight, autumn leaves, snowy landscape are waiting for you. In shopping and sightseeing, development in Osaka, in particular, is remarkable, We will continue to grow to a good hotel without losing. Hoping for a day to meet again. Yours sincerely, HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI Naoya Kojo
We stayed here for 4 nights in Oct. 2017, and couldn't have picked a better place for our first time in Osaka. Clean and modern, spacious(!) rooms, friendly yet unobtrusive staff, what more can you ask for? Great location, with Namba station, 7-11, Lawson, and the action at Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi all within walking distance. The warm and inviting lobby made you feel at home as soon as you walked in, and the hotel's thoughtfulness in providing an area to sit and heat up breakfast for early mornings, free flow drinks, and even massage chairs to relax in after a long day, were much appreciated. The vending machine and laundry room were also a plus, not to mention the fact that the hotel is a smoke-free property. Also, the front desk was very helpful in lending umbrellas when it suddenly rained, as well as getting luggage sent to Tokyo the day before we checked out. All in all, highly recommended and we will definitely be back. Thanks Hotel 88 !
Dear Mr./Ms. Jinky Thank you for the highest ratings and comments. We are very happy when we see your review. Please share your memories made in Osaka. Osaka evolves to a more hot spot. We are also planning to evolve to a more comfortable hotel. We were cheered by your comments. To you the greatest love and gratitude. Yours sincerely, HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI Naoya Kojo
We stayed 5 nights with Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi and was overwhelmed with the great service they hotel has provided. We had booked 4 rooms but 1 of the rooms was told that it was located in the annex building instead of the main building where the other 3 rooms were. Was very impressed that the hotel was willing to do a free upgrade to change the 4th room for us so that we could all be in the same building. Thumbs up for this great service! Hotel also provided a very detailed video on how to get to the hotel via OCAT. The friendly staff even offered free shuttle service on our last day as it was raining heavily and we had 11 pax (adults, children, elderly) and 14 baggages to carry! Hotel lobby provided free drinks throughout the day and there were massage chairs, pool table available for guests to rest and relax. Totally enjoyed the stay in this hotel and will definitely be back should we come to Osaka again!
Dear Li, Thank you very much for taking your time to write down the detailed feedback for us. We greatly appreciate your kind review, which helps us work on the further improvement for the future. We are definitely happy to hear that you enjoyed our services and facilities during your stay. In addition, it was our pleasure to give you a free ride. You were actually very lucky because the ride is not always available, but that is our top priority to take care of our guests even after check-out. Once again, thank you very much for choosing Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi for your vacation this time. It would be great if you could consider us again for your next trip to Osaka! Yatoji, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi
Superb hotel! Will definitely be back again!”
We booked Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi for the last leg of our Kansai holiday, returning to Osaka to shop and eat for our last three days. This turned out to be one of our best finds this trip! The room was very spacious! We are a couple with two kids, and so far have found rooms in Japan to be generally too small for our comfort. So we couldn't believe our eyes when we stepped into our room. There were two queen sized beds on two different sides of the room, with lots of space in between, a long table, and a long bench (great for all the shopping bags!). The bath and toilet were behind separate doors and super spacious. They also provided free flow of drinks from morning to night at the comfortable lobby, and tables and chairs where we could eat our snacks and takeouts. Service was impeccable. The humble boss himself even offered and helped us lug our luggages all the way to the Ocat station when we were heading to the airport! We will definitely be back!
Dear Mr./Ms. Hwee Thank you for the best comments and ratings. You were fortunate to met our boss Ricky. He sometimes come to Japan. But while in Japan he makes an incredible miracle. He accomplishes so much with only one person. Reception to the bus terminal, repair of equipment, electrical work, tourist information etc. "Ask Ricky" is a magical word. Because he makes "impossible" to"possible". Please do not hesitate to "ask Ricky" if you see Ricky next time！ Yours sincerely, HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI Naoya Kojo
Such a great experience at Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi!”
Yes, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi is very close to Namba Station and Dotonbori. Yes, it is a clean hotel with amenities that add to the quality of the hotel. But, the staff is what sets this hotel apart from many that we've stayed at before. The staff is THE BEST and always seemed to go the extra mile to help us. We had such an enjoyable experience at Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi! Arigatoogozaimasu !
Dear Brent Thank you very much for your stay and evaluation. Your recognition is our greatest encouragement. We will continue to work hard and continuously improve. We are looking forward to see you again in the near future. Hotel88Shinsaibashi Xu
good place and excellent service”
We had a good time in 88 shinsaibashi. The hotel provided massage chair and laundry room. When waiting for laundry, you can massage and have some drinks in lounge. Transport to namba station or bus station is provided and even the staff help us with our luggage and deliver us to the bus stop and tell us how to buy ticket and show us where to go. A very good service. We will go back again when we go to osaka.
Dear Valued Guest, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. We are glad to hear that you had a good time at our hotel. It was also our pleasure to take care of you even after you checked out so that you could go back home with no worry. Yes, please visit Osaka again if you get another chance someday in the near future. It then would be also wonderful if we could welcome you back. Once again, thank you very much for staying with us. Warm Regards, Yatoji, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi
Excellent & clean hotel with superb friendly environment from the staffs. Very recommended !!!”
All you need to have for travellers are provided, plus hairdryer and free drinks (soda, coffee, tea). Nearby and within walking distance to Dotonburi and Osaka Namba Station as well as OCAT. The room is clean. I spent 3 nights with 2 young children (4 and 7 yrs) and we all are very satisfied. During the approaching of Typhoon Trami that hit on 30 Sept 2018, the staffs are very supportive with supports and information. The night before Typhoon Trami, One staff even help me to show the way to the bus terminal at the OCAT in the middle of the night, which then help me a lot with my big bags that I can put in the lockers locates at the OCAT (Osaka City Air Terminal) the night before our flight. At that time only bus and train were dare and allowed to go to the airport, taxis were not dare to take your booking to airport. Thanks to the sincere helps from the Staffs at Hotel 88. Very recommended and I definitely will stay there again whenever I visit Osaka. Raphael Kodrata, Indonesia.
Dear Raphael Thank you very much for your kind words. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed staying at our hotel and we were able to give you good customer services. As you mentioned,We are very pleased that our staff is useful for you. Please visit Osaka again if you get another chance to come, and we will then be happy to see you. Once again, thank you very much for choosing us. Warm Regards, Yamazaki, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi
Highly recommended! Convenient, clean and room is big.”
The hotel is near to Namba station. Walkable distance to namba station and Shinsaibashi, so you can hang around till very late without worrying the last train. I was staying in the corner twin with my friend. The room was big, about 23m2. We still got a lot of walking space after we opened our two big luggages. The room was very clean, and most importantly, the toilet, the washing basin and the bathtub/shower are all separate, that means we can best utilize our time, like I can brush my teeth when my friend is taking the bath. (the washing basin is very big, good for girls!) The hotel staff are very helpful, we almost asked them to book restaurants for us every night and they never showed annoyance. Complimentary drinks is also a bonus! Highly recommended, especially for those of you who need a big room and a comfy stay! No doubt I will stay there again when I visit Osaka!
Dear Mr./Ms. Leung Thank you for giving the best comments and ratings. Comments like your travel writer article make us happy. We are also looking forward to the next comment;) Osaka is becoming a hot spot more and more. We also want to grow to a better hotel. Please come and visit Japan again. Yours sincerely, HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI Naoya Kojo
Good staff, good room and best location”
Love staying at hotel 88 and would be coming back again when i travel to osaka (namba). Here’s the list why this is my favourite hotel: 1) for someone who going japan for the first time, the staffs are kind and patience to guide me through on the direction to metro station and which station should i take..(asked abt for kyoto , kobe, etc). To me, some are knowlegable enough to be tour guide. 2) 24hrs friendly user phone . They have this mobile phone which you can take out from your hotel room and you can have free 4G data . i use for 5 days for more than 10hrs for online google map and google search for places to rest/eat.There no need for you to buy wifi router unless u wanna use the internet for instagram, whatsapp. 3) Room are spacious and clean. Love the hotel exterior design too. 4) no worries on language barrier, they have staff that speaks english, chinese, japanese, korean.
Dear Ivy, Thank you very much for taking your time to write down all of those warm words. It is very nice of you that you even listed the things you liked about our hotel. We really like them and of course, are so happy to hear that we were able to help you have a great time here in Osaka. In particular, your feedback on the free smart phone which is also called "handy" is very helpful because we still have a few of it and wanted to hear how it works for our guests since we have started renting it out. We know that it is still hard to find Wifi spots in the public areas in Japan, so it is good to hear that it helped you walk around here during your stay. We will absolutely try to catch more "New" and "Exciting" information so that our guests can have more unique experiences here. Please visit Osaka again if you get another chance so then we will be able to tell you more interesting information. Again, thank you very much for staying with us. We hope to see you soon again. Yatoji
Great location and excellent service”
The room is spacious and bigger than we expected. We booked for 2 queen sized bed room and had a free upgrade to a big family room with 1 king sized bed and 1 queen sized bed. The staff are very friendly and helpful, room is very clean. The boss even gave us a lift to the bus station. We had a great time staying in Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi. Thank you for the great service and we will definitely stay in this hotel when we are visiting Osaka again!
Dear Peggy, Thank you very much for taking your time to leave your warm words. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and help us improve our services and facilities in the future. It was also our pleasure to give a hand to you even after checking out. Yes, we would be very happy if you could consider us the next time when you visit Osaka. Once again, thank you very much for staying with us. Yatoji, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi
Great location, big rooms! Friendliest staff in all of Osaka!”
I cannot say any Cons about this hotel. We love everything about Hotel 88. I've met the friendliest staff in Japan only in Hotel 88. They are very polite and helpful and can speak English. They've helped us navigate the subways many times. The lobby has a homey charm to it. Pool table, massage chairs, unlimited drinks (coffee, tea, juice, soda). Rooms are big for a hotel in Japan. Rooms are very clean. Free wifi phone to take with you when you go out is a plus! 5 min walk to JR namba station and OCAT, 5 min walk to Namba station. GyozaOH is a few steps close (best gyozas!!!). 711 is also few steps away. Dotonbori is a 5 min walk and is just a crosswalk away. Don Quixote is within walking distance.
Dear Malanie, Thank you very much for taking your time to put this kind review with a perfect score, 10.0. We are very happy to hear your compliment about our customer services which is one of our focuses in particular. It is also good to know that you liked other things such as services, rooms, facilities, and location, and those helped make your trip better.

Please visit Osaka again if you get another chance, and then we will be more than happy to welcoming you. Once again, thank you very much for staying with us. Warm Regards, Yatoji, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi
Hip and Quaint Hotel”
We had a remarkable stay at Hotel 88. First, the location was really convenient and accessible. Just about 10 minutes walk from Namba Station (5 minutes if you know the underground passage way), it’s also close to the famous shopping street, Shinsaibashisuji. What we loved about the location as well is that it’s also close to Amerikamura(famous hip and young shopping streets) and some cool hole in the wall cafes, restaurants and Izikayas. Every day and night there are different options for your tastebuds. Second, the Hotel 88 itself was very good in terms of service. The staff were very corteous, responsive and nice. What I would like to give my extra compliment on is their good security. Inside the hotel there are cctvs everywhere. It’s a good peace of mind knowing that your surroundings are well guarded. Also, their housekeeping service was spot on. We woke up a little bit late and when we were about to head out their housekeeping staff were already on stand by to clean our room.
Dear. Mr./Ms MAIKI Thank you very much for sharing your wonderful feedback with us. It is good to hear that you and your family all went back home safely. We are also glad that you were happy with our guest rooms, facilities, and customer services and had a lot of fun here in Osaka. We will try to keep working hard to improve those so that our guests can stay comfortably. Please visit Osaka again if you get another chance to come, and it then would be great to welcome you back. Once again, thank you very much for staying with us. Thank you Hotel88 Shinsaibashi Yang
Will stay in this hotel again”
Wonderful location close to namba and alot of food around the area. Stayed in triple sharing and hotel room is big. The bath and wc are separated so its convienent for us. Staff were all wonderful and they even arranged to fetch us to the train station on the day we checked out. Thumbs up for Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi!!
Mr./Ms jaclyn Thank you for your stay and comment. We feel honored to be able to leave a wonderful memory for your journey. We will continue to work hard to improve continuously so that we can provide you better service next time. Look forward to see you again Hotel88 Shinsaibashi Yang
Friendly and excellent service!”
The room is big and I love the Japanese style bathroom which allow you to take shower and bath separately. The staff cleans and changes the bed sheet everyday. Overall, the location and service are great! We will stay at this hotel again if my family and I go back to Osaka in the future. Big Mahalo to the staff at Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi!
Dear Mr./Ms. Lulu Thank you for your Lokomaikai comment and evaluation! We will continue to make efforts to aim a better hotel. We are encouraged by your comments and we will do our best! Mata oai simasho! (A hui hou) Yours sincerely, Naoya Kojo HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI
Great location with easy access to subway lines. Namba station is only few minutes away by foot. The staffs are most helpful taking time to advise us on how to travel to various tourist attractions and the tips turn out to be especially facilitating. Most unexpectedly is the owner actually sent us to the bus station on our return. A fantastic experience that will resonate in my memory for a long time. "Bravo. 88 Hotel Shinsaibashi"
Dear Mr./Ms. Cheng Thank you for giving us nice comments and the best evaluations. We are happy if you spent a good time at Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi. There are four seasons in Japan, each with its charm. Cherry blossoms, scorching sunlight, autumn leaves, snowy landscape are waiting for you. The culture and scenery of Japan, the experiences cultivated in this trip will surely color your life. Our boss sometimes comes to Japan. Although he is very busy, but he sometimes takes guests to the station and bus terminal. You may have been fortunate. Do not forget that you are a member of "Hotel 88 Family". Please come home at any time. Yours sincerely, HOTEL88SHINSAIBASHI Naoya Kojo
What a great experience”
The location is top - within walking distance to restaurants and shoppings at Dontonburi, shinsaibashi and Namba. The staff speak English and are very helpful. They are very thoughtful for every little things. It rained everyday when we were in Osaka, they had umbrella ready for us! The free drinking machines and massage chairs at the lobby are additional features that my family loves! There are also 2 washing machine and 2 dryers operated by coins. Very convenient. The room is very clean, the toilet is spacious with a separate bath tub. We booked one room for 3 paxs plus 1 child stays for free. I love how the staff make us feel very special - on our last day, the gentlemen who helped us with the check out offered to drop us to OCAT station for airport limousine. They helped with our luggages and three staff came with us in the van, we thought they also needed a lift to the nearest station. Its not that! they came to help wheeling our luggage!! Thank you so much.
Dear Mr./Ms. Novita Thank you for your stay. It is our responsibility to provide you with the services that we can. We are very happy to help you. We will continue to work hard to provide you with more convenient facilities and better service. If you come to Osaka next time, you are welcome to stay at our hotel and we look forward to continuing to serve you. Best regards, Zhou Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi
Perfect! I have nothing but good words to say, but it won't fit in the space provided!”
The staff is perfect. The Hotel is modern and very clean. The room is spacious. There's free flowing coffee and soda at the lobby. The hotel is equipped with in room alarms for earthquake(yes we had a 6.1 earthquake during our stay)The hotel is walking distance to Namba and Shinsaibashi. Orange street is also nearby. Dotonburi street is behind the hotel(food food food!). A 7/11 is nearby. Currency exchange is walking distance at the underground Namba Walk. The train station is there too. A supermarket is located underground nearby for diapers and everything you might need that's not. available in 7/11. The hotel is friendly for babies and toddlers. Excellent place for shoppers.
Dear Amiel, Thank you very much for taking the time to put your wonderful words with the perfect score. We greatly appreciate your kind feedback. As you mentioned, our hotel is conveniently located in almost center of Namba and Dotombori area which easily access to major places, so we are happy to see that you had a great time here in Osaka. On the other hand, we believe that the big earthquake made you feel shocked and anxious until you left Japan, but fortunately, everything has been getting back to normal here. We, therefore, hope that you would visit Osaka again if you get another chance someday in the future. Once again, thank you very much for staying with us. Warm Regards, Yatoji, Hotel 88 Shinsaibashi
Above and Beyond”
Great hotel in Osaka. Close to Dotonburi and shinsaibashi arcade. But what really made this place was the staff, who upon checkout went above and beyond in checking and providing the travel directional and transport details to our next destination and moreover insisting on helping us with our luggage to the Namba station elevators as we were traveling with an infant. Very nice staff indeed.
Dear. Mr./Ms dan Thank you for your stay and like our hotel. It is our responsibility to bring you a good accommodation and service. We will continue to work hard and maintain. If you come to Osaka next time , we welcome you back in the future as well. and look forward to serving you again next time. Thank you. Hotel88 Shinsaibashi Yang
