We were looking for a good value location and the Seagul Palace is ideal with many of Osaka’s sights in walking distance and easy access to Metro and JR.
Knowing Japan quite well, our expectations on accommodation size meant no surprises with the compact room being nice and quiet, a functional bathroom and washing machine all efficiently included within it. Fridge and microwave handy, however only mugs for drinks as kitchen utensils.
Very comfortable and quiet overall, although as everyone also notes and is pretty standard in ‘weekly mansion’ style accommodation, pillows have no support. Easy to get round with a jacket or the likes folded and placed underneath for better support overall.
Staff very friendly and supportive. Again as norm, early check in is chargeable, although they are happy to store bags whilst waiting, and within reception opening hours.
Enjoyed stay very much.
