    Great value-for-money hotel in a good location.

    A great hotel in convenient location, readily accessible to Osaka station either a 10 minute walk or one stop by underground. Has an excellent public bath. Breakfast is available on 30th floor with excellent rooftop views. A superior breakfast is available on the 2nd floor but has limited views.

  • 6.0.Good

    It was right above the higobashi subway, so very handy for transport, and the 7eleven just across the road, and a decent supermarket just around the corner from the YMCA. The room was the smallest of all rooms I have stayed in, and the most expensive of them as well.

    Staff are friendly (typical of all customer service staff in Japan). Close to Metro station and just one stop to Osaka's main station. Great eating places nearby

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The room was very squishy, I had asked for a queen and a single as that would have suited our needs. Instead we were given a room with three king singles. My husband and I had to sleep separate, and this many and these sized beds made the room squishy. Other than that the Hotel is great, situated above the entrance/exit to Higobashi train station which was very handy for getting around.

    I thought the location was brilliantly located - the door leads straight to the station. The rooms a quite small with little space if you are travelling with luggage.
