Although it looks old from the outside, the rooms are clean, you get free water, coffee and tea and the bathrooms are clean as well. You also get a wide selection of shampoo and body shampoo to use during your stay. The staff are really friendly too! Highly recommend this place!

The hotel is easy to find and can be found just steps away from the station. Check in took quite some time as the staff struggled to find my reservation. The hotel only has one slow moving elevator for the 8+ floors it services. My biggest complaint was the doors to the rooms. They featured slits across the bottom that... More

I stayed in the Japanese style single room for three nights. When I booked, I thought I was getting a Western style room, so I was surprised upon check in, but I suppose I needed to clarify. Anyway, the room was clean, as was the rest of the hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, even with limited English. I... More

No effort needed to find this hotel, it is just literally in front of the station exit! Upon reaching we were a bit worried because it looked old and dodgy, but after a few nights down we were so comfortable and hate to leave! The hotel really exceeded my expectation, because with that price tag and all the reviews we... More

I read some review that it is located in dodgy area. Well, it turns out that Japanese slum area is not that bed. Yes, you can see one or two homeless people on the street but they are harmless. Actually you can find some cheap eating place nearby. And the location is great. Subway station is very near and JR... More

We, in fact, had booked for 3 nights. But we arrived KIX, quick immigration process, and catched the last train to the hotel. When we were at the hotel, we explained to them to get another nights if availability. Unfortunately, they were fully booked.
