First of all the full name is B&C Hotel Sunplay Inn Nagahori. Take the subway to Shinsaibashi and exit number 2. Is you see Chanel or Zara you are on the good side. Take the main street or the parallele one, walk 5 minutes and you are there. Entrances on both sides of the streets. It is on the 1st floor. The name is written in big.
I stayed there for 6 nights. It is one of the cheapest option for hotels as it is quite expensive in Japan.
I also wanted to try the famous capsule!
Well It is much better than expected. First of all I was on the women floor, so no snoring!
It is mainly a business hotel so it is quiet, not so much women going (mainly men) so you can really sleep good. No party drunk people to wake you up. Plus I was the only foreigner, which means that mainly Japanese ladies go and they are very discreet.
The capsule is exactly my size. If you are more than 1,78 m then forgot about it. The bed is very comfortable. You have a tv with of course only Japanese channels. An alarm clock, light, ventilation adjustable.
You share the main facilities. The bathroom is amazing full of products for the shower, hair and face (from Shiseido)
They provided towels (bed and towels changed everyday) toothbrush, water, gifts (masks or cream) hair drier etc..
You have a locker on the same floor for your precious belongings. Beware your bag or luggage will not fit. But you can leave it in front of your capsule. It is very safe.
On the 3rd floor you have the computer access. I have my own laptop so I used the wired connection. Wifi works at the reception. I used the printer too, was very convenient. Japanese barely speak English so to print out map for next stops of sightseeing is very handy!
Around this area there are tons of nice places to go out, have excellent food. The Namba station is at one stop and the main Osaka one (for JR pass etc) is at 3 subway station. It is very easy to use the subway.
The reception barely speaks English but really try to help. I left my luggage for 2 weeks while I am visiting the rest of Japan. You have to walk a lot, it is hard to find your way at first, so no way to carry out heavy luggage or backpack! Specially as it is about 30 degrees and very hot.
There no street name or if so just in Japanese. However I had the chance to end up with very kind people who helped me find my way. It is the first time I travel in a country where it is so hard to communicate. No English spoken there!
I recommend this hotel and will go again Before leaving Japan. Transportation and food wise it is absolutely convenient!
BTW about 9 am or 10 am there is an announcement, apparently to wish you a good morning. They clean the hotel from 10am so no late sleeping!
And is really you dislike capsule, they have a floor with Western bed and air co.
