Not amazing, but adequate for what it wasPosted Aug 29, 2017
Preface, I chose this place purely because it was walking distance to the JR station, for one night only then departing the next morning. For what it was (a bed and a shower) it was adequate but no more. For a few dollars more I could have had a proper room, so I would not visit again. Location: surprisingly difficult to find. Hotel is not air conditioned, only the rooms (sort of. The remote for the AC has about 35 buttons, in Japanese only and no intuitive ease of use. Several minutes of trial and error gave the five button sequence to turn on the AC). Weather was 36C 81% on this day. Restaurant for breakfast was surprisingly good. Small but good variety of Japanese style items, with some very basic western choices like granola (no other cereal), buns, and some odd items like pickled mystery vegetables and green salad. I ate only the Japanese items, which were great. Self serve buffet. Room was tiny but that was expected, single sink/shower combo gave instant hot water at good pressure. All in all, adequate for what it was, a place to clean up and sleep after 18 hours of travelling.

Good Hotel in the cityPosted Aug 15, 2017
The Hotel staff are impeccable. They are wonderfully welcoming and will help you out with a lot of different things if you are stuck. The rooms are small especially for someone of my stature (6ft 6/ 2m). The rooms had a few places that were a bit broken (for example some bits of wood seemed water damaged). The breakfast was good and is cheaper to buy it when you book as opposed to when you are there. The location is quite close to the main station in Osaka and also not far from lots of really nice restaurants. Lastly i would like to recommend this Hotel because the staff speak enough English to be able to help with most of the requests that I had. I would recommend this Hotel on the calibre of its staff alone.

Cheap hotel in out-of-the-way locationPosted Aug 12, 2017
Pros: The WiFi was excellent. Well presented, helpful staff.
Cons: A couple more machines in the coin laundry, and a change machine.
If you don't mind tiny rooms, with very basic facilities, at a cheap price, then this is alright. The area is a bit on the seedy side, with "love hotels" dotted around. The wifi is excellent, and whilst the rooms are non-smoking there is a smoking room in the lobby. It is within easy reach of the Umeda entertainment area and the shopping streets.

A bit grim but value for moneyPosted May 25, 2017 on Hotels
Cheap and convenient for Osaka Station. Apart from the lobby, the hotel is in very shabby condition. Room had taken a beating but was clean and had the usual amenities offered by a Japanese business hotel. Street is noisy at night. PC for guest use in lobby.

Good place to stay when in OsakaPosted May 5, 2017
Pros: Location and staff. Free WIKI, bathhouse and breakfast
Cons: Hotel is old. Not sure how much can be done.
Location: Higashi Umeda subway station 5 mins away. Umeda station, Osaka Station in walking 10-min distance. In Osaka, eating places are never a problem.
3rd stay at Hotel Kansai. Staff is great. Lobby is welcoming. Check-in/out, luggage storage, breakfast all very appropriate. Value for money. Room size is better expected in a big Japanese city. Bathroom bit small. Location is great. You have Higashi Umeda subway station 5 mins away. Umeda station, Osaka Station in walking 10-min distance. In Osaka, eating places are never a problem. Free WIFI, free bathhouse use, free breakfast. No complaint! However, it is located in the so-to-speak red light district. Something get remember.

Been to Japan 3 times, this was hands down the worst hotel I've stayed at. The local area is kind of dodgy with love hotels and whatnot. At first when you see the lobby, it may be understandable to think that it is a decent hotel, but go in and all the rooms have windows that look into stairwells and the rooms are rundown, it feels like a dungeon. I asked if I could change rooms, one said they well full, one said all the rooms are like that and most of the staff don't speak much English.

Good location, nice renovated foyer but rooms notPosted Apr 17, 2017 on Wotif
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, newly renovated foyer and great restaurant for breakfast.
Cons: Rooms need renovating, beds are very hard and they only supply one hard pillow.
Location: Location is great although it's close to the strip clubs it didn't feel unsafe. Is close to Osaka station and the shops.
This hotel was in a good location as we travelled by Train and didn't want to walk too far, it was also on the right side of the station for Osaka Castle. The staff were very friendly and helpful and both the foyer and the restaurant were freshly renovated but the room was very small with basic furniture and no window and in serious need of renovation. It was good value for Osaka but I should have spent extra for a better room, at least with a window.
