    Normal business hotel”

    They are in good location. Only 30 sec. from station to hotel. It’s fantastic. On the other hand, the room is very small. If you want to have enough space for opening your suitcase, it’s better to choose wider room. And the room wall is cheap. You can hear the voice of your neighbors. Anyway the price is excellent. So it is good value.

    Suprub location . The hotel is right at the Higobashi station. You can go to Umeda in one stop, or a walk around 15 minutes. The breakfast is OK but no other choices except 7Eleven in the nearby area.

    Quiet yet approachable place ”

    If you are looking for a place that is less crowded and quiet but is still close to “Namba” which is the main touristy area of Osaka, I highly recommend this hotel. The image and expectation I had for the country has more of a safe and walkable vibe rather than “the CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS” vibe so if youre looking for the former then i think this place is for you. Some reviews say that this place has some hygiene issues, such as smoking etc, but that wasnt a problem for me. Fyi I HATE the smell of cigarette and cigar and am very sensitive to that kind of smell. Somehow this review ended up as me raving about the place but i just wanted to emphasize that i am not related to the hotel whatsoever. In fact, i had low expectation of it. Anyways, i highly recommend the hotel id even stay here again if i get a chance

    Good”

    Hotel is located in business area. MTR was efficient, but a little bit far from Osaka central district, a transit of MTR is needed, and the distance between stations was FAR~~~!!! Hotel facility was old, a typical Japanese business hotel. Room was small and compact, double bed room is no good for 2 persons. Shower room was OK, but no air conditioning was killing me after having a shower, I had to ask staff to open the window for me with their special key. It was very noisy in mid-night. Although it was in business area, but ambulance noise was everywhere. I could not sleep well for 3 nights. However, staffs were nice. Their service and answering attitude was GOOD!!

    The location was ok as it was near a few subway stations and also a several minutes walk to Umeda. The hotel provides a phone with data which is useful in navigating the location and which trains to take. There are also 2 convenience stores at the ground level which is open 24/7.

    Good Hotel”

    Good location. A few meters away from Higobashi Station of the Yotsubashi line (subway) and one station away from JR Osaka Station. Free use of a handy phone for call, texts and data during your stay. You can even bring it when you go out of the hotel. There is a 24 hour convenience store right in the lobby of the hotel. Also, 7-11 is just beside the hotel. The room and bathroom is a little small and dated however it was clean. Our room is also cold and we cannot figure out how to use the heater. But the blankets and comforter are very warm so we didn't mind figuring out the heater anymore. They also provided one pillow for each person checked-in. Hoping they could provide at least two per person next time. Overall, it was a pleasant and comfortable stay

    Just a few steps away from Higobashi station of Yotsubashi Line. Very convenient. There's a 7-11 outside, a starbucks opposite to the hotel and lots of restaurants around. The room is relatively bigger than our hotel in Tokyo. It also has a handy, a mobile phone which you can use for text, calls and data during your stay in the hotel. They also have currency exchange with a better rate than the exchange machines. Only con is their pillow, my neck hurts every morning. Otherwise everything is great.

    We tried to walk to the hotel from the train station and that was a mistake, it wasn't easy to navigate the underground shopping area. But the hotel is very close to a mall, a subway station, restaurants etc. Very quiet and comfortable, we wished we were staying more than one night.

    Value for Money”

    Amazing hotel! it has very small rooms (max of 2 per room for the semi-double room) but it is super clean, the room is well maintained, they have the necessary things (toiletries, fridge, TV). One problem is that they don't have instructions on how to use the aircon/heater so it does get hot in the middle of the night however they have a humidifier in the room, which you can use. Staffs were really nice. Fast check-in and check-out. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is not found in Umeda or Namba, it is somewhere in between hence it is a lot quieter compared to those areas. It is 5 steps away from Higobashi station which is 3 stops away from Namba and 1 stop away from Nishi-umeda (very easy to go around). There are a lot of restaurants around (e.g. starbucks, matsuya (try their gyudon for breakfast), small japanese stalls). Overall, I really enjoyed my stay in this hotel. Worth every cent considering that it is not an expensive hotel! :) Will definitely book this again when I go back to Osaka!

    Hotel was in a pretty good location. Just 1 min from higobashi station. The room is small, just like every other hotel room in Japan. Staff's command of English is somewhat lacking, but they were really friendly. Wifi is horrendous unfortunately. The signal couldn't last and had to be reconnected once every few minutes.

    Quiet area with good transport at a reasonable price”

    We stayed our last night in Japan here on a weekend. It was in a very quiet part of Osaka (the business district?), so limited options for meals nearby, although the upmarket Odona Mall, approx 500m from the hotel has some restaurants. It is very well located for the train station - Higobashi station is right below the hotel. Take exit 10 from the station and the hotel is just steps away - wonderful if you have luggage. Higobashi is also one stop south of Nishi-Umeda which is a major train hub with lots of shopping and dining options. The room is standard size for Japan, ie. small. We booked a small double, rather than a semi-double and I do think the bed was slightly bigger. In any case, it was a very comfortable bed for two people. The bathroom was very small, but adequately set up with a deep Japanese-style bath and a shower, full-sized sink and all the usual bells and whistles for a Japanese toilet, like heating and washing options. Overall, good value for money.

    near the station, easy to find, 3 convenience stores nearby.

    It was great, the housekeepers are really nice and even though the space is a little small, but it is really comfortable to stay in. One of the convenience store is connected directly to the hotel so it is quite easy to get things if you get hungry in the middle of the night.
