"We booked our hotel in Osaka at the last minute and most hotels were fully booked. This hotel wouldn't have been my first choice and it was a little pricy but it was one of the cheapest available at the time. The room was a little small for 2 people but we managed. The room was pretty clean and tidy. The wifi was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant in the hotel was tiny and I never tried the food. The best thing about this hotel was the location. It's very close to the MRT and the railway station. There are a few shops and malls nearby. If you plan to go to Osaka for a day or 2 then I think this hotel is ok for longer stays maybe somewhere more comfortable is better. Just make sure you book well in advance."

"The hotel is super close to Tennoji station which makes travel in Osaka super easy. The rooms are a bit bigger than a normal Japanese hotel room which is nice. The pre-fabricated bathrooms are a little disappointing however they do their job and they’re kept very clean. Breakfast, I can’t say how disappointing this was. Their photos are totally misleading with no where near the options you are lead to believe are on offer. We ensured our booking included breakfast, we turned up once, looked at the food and left. There is obviously and understandably an English language barrier. Normally this situation would have called for a partial refund of our booking however we decided it was best to spend time in a beautiful city instead of squabble over breakfast in a language which wouldn’t have been understood. Saving grace! The massive Q’s Mall and tonnes of other great food places around meant that food was never an issue. Thankfully the hotel also provided two pod coffees each morning, this saved them a little and earned a star here or there. Would I stay here again? Only if I had to. I would attempt to find another hotel similarly close to Tennoji station. Sorry, but the breakfast really did it for us. "

"Our stay was good. Check-in was quick. We were hoping for a room on a high floor so that we could get a view of the city at night, and we got it! We were very happy to get the 16th floor. The room was a good size, clean, and the bed was comfy. The air-conditioner was working just fine. The shower had excellent pressure. The only downside was the internet. It amazes me that some hotels can't provide wi-fi in hotel rooms. Maybe there are logistics to it I don't understand. But when we stay in cheap backpacker hostels, free wi-fi is abundant. If you have a tablet or phone that can't connect through the LAN network, you have to go down to the lobby and hang out on benches in front of check-in to access the internet, which is a bit inconvenient. We are not addicts which require constant access to the internet, but when traveling it can be helpful to access the internet for various information. I suppose it's a minor inconvenience. Another thing was the pool. I find it misleading when a hotel checks the box next to indoor pool, yet charges extra for using it when you arrive. We booked this hotel partially for said pool. When we arrived, we were informed that to use the pool facilities would cost an extra 20/25 dollars per person for 1 day, which we declined. Some might be OK with that, but we find that to be a rip-off. Please mention this in your hotel information so as not to come across as misleading to customers."
