Stayed here for 8 days over new years and I don't think there is a better place to stay in Osaka. The location was perfect, the room was perfect and the staff were all better than perfect. Great breakfast, great hotel gym, just a great stay. I will definitely be back! I didn't take many pictures of the hotel but these are pictures from the windows in the lobby, the restaurant and my room.

We are a family of four, on a vacation to Osaka. Breakfast was splendid. Staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. Especially the staff named Maeda left a strong helpful impression on us. The hotel should raise her pay, she really did great job complimented with praiseworthy politeness and helpfulness. Location was great as well. Would stay here again next time
