Reasonable close to the city centre and the main shopping area. The B&C (Business and Capsule) Hotel can be found in between the two metro stations of Shinsaibashi and Matsuyamachi. In fact, the two stations are connected by an underground mall that runs underneath the main road that the hotel is located on. Look at the other reviews for directions to the hotel. As I had arrived past 12pm (metro had stopped running), I walked from the Namba train station through the shopping and bar / lounge area to get to the hotel. There are 2 entrances to the hotel from both sides of the road (main and back alley road). The ground floor is the restaurant where breakfast is served and the lobby is located on the 2nd floor. It is a typical capsule hotel where you have to leave all your larger bags at the check in desk and only bring a smaller backpack / pouch up to the capsule floor with the individual lockers where you will find your robe, slippers & towel. The shower is also the typical men's squat shower with a communal hot tub / jacuzzi (which is nice to sit in after walking all over the city at the end of the day). The capsule itself is large enough to sit up in if you aren't over 1.8m tall. There is 10 or so free TV channels if you wish to watch some local entertainment before bed. Depending on who is occupying the neighbouring capsules, the snoring can be quite loud so it is best to bring ear plugs. There is a power point in the capsule to help charge up your devices for the next day. The wifi is only available in the lobby area though I got a So-Net data only 4G LTE SIM card from the Osaka Kansai airport vending maching (1GB for 3000 yen or 3GB for 5000 yen) which still worked in the capsule. There is also a spa in the hotel but I did not make use of the facilities there. The free toiletries and toothbrushes are handy if you forgot to bring something on your trip.
