To be honest, from the hundreds of hotels I have searched and compared, I have finally booked this one based on it's location and value. And I said to myself: let's hope I have made a good decision (considering the wired statues in the front). And indeed, this hotel did not disappoint. On the contrary, I was impressed by the...

Arrived at the hotel @ ~8pm and was greeted promptly by a middle aged gentleman @ the front desk. He was unable to find my reservation even though i had the reservation slip with me. Even though he was sweating a little, he still had a smile on his face as he went about attempting to resolve the problem. 30...

The Dotonbori exceeded our expectations. We arrived early in the morning and were surprised we could check in when normal check-in is in the afternoon. Many value-added servies such as computer and printer for use at the lobby for printing locations/sites, wi-fi in rooms with clear instructions, umbrellas for ready use when raining.

LOCATION: Great location, just a short walk from Namba station. To get to the hotel, however, can be a little tricky. I would strongly advise that you map out the directions prior to arriving at Namba station. You can easily spot the hotel by its trademark giant stone men by the door. Good thing, though, is that since it's located...
