"Good travel stop"
This hotel was close to the station (a short walk). Well situated in a busy area that offered lots of restaurants and shopping opportunities. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast has lost of choice. Coffee shop downstairs was nice as well.
Close to everything. Bit further away from train station. There's eateries everywhere which helped since we were tired of walking long distances at night. Don Quijote (supermarket) is across the street, 24/7 so it was literally where I started my trip and bought last minute gifts for people. I would stay at this hotel. Awesome staff and view. Breakfast is DELICIOUS. Only one downside is that we were on the 9th floor and we could hear cars from the street. I'm also a really light sleeper. The other people in my room had no concerns. THANK YOU!
"The perfect stay"
One of the main reasons why I loved this city is the location of this hotel along with the nice service they provided us. Everything is nearby and more than a station could be reached easily ! Your surrounded by shopping places and restaurants. The place itself was clean and cozy.
"Amazing Location Offers Something for Everyone"
The Hotel's proximity to shopping, restaurants and Namba Station can't be beat. And despite the throngs of tourists and traffic on the street, the rooms are very quiet. The room was a nice size for Japanese standards and we even had space to store our luggage. The beds were comfortable, and the heat/air can be adjusted as needed. Tea, coffee and water are provided each day, along with a nice selection of bath toiletries. The bathroom is fantastic, as there is one area with a sink and toilet and a separate room with a traditional, yet modern-style shower/bath combination. The one downside to the room is that the TV doesn't offer any channels in English. The breakfast buffet is excellent and highly recommended. It offers dozens of western options (eggs, breads, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal, desserts) and Japanese dishes (rice, miso soup, pickles, fish, vegetables, salad), plus a nice selection of juices, smoothies, coffees and teas. It's a really nice spread, especially if you're willing to try some new or different Japanese dishes. As expected in Osaka, takoyaki is served every day. The Shinsaibashisuji shopping arcade is directly behind the hotel, which offers countless stores and restaurants. It's an exciting area, but be prepared for very large crowds day and night. There is an Osaka Visitor's Center immediately behind the hotel on the 2nd floor which has maps and offers various train passes for purchase; the staff were very friendly. There are also several convenience stores within a 2-3 minute walk. About 15 minutes away by foot is a supermarket and coin laundry. Out the front of the hotel about a two minute walk heading south is the entrance (#14) to Namba station. From Namba station, you can access many train lines, including those that travel directly (or with only one stop) to Himeji, Kobe, Nara, and Uji. The airport buses also stop at Namba station. From Itami Aiport, the bus costs 700 yen to Namba, plus a short (around 800 yen) cab ride to the hotel. A taxi from the hotel back to Itami Airport (very early in the morning, with no traffic) costs around 6000 yen. The staff at the front desk were very polite and helpful. I would suggest adding additional seating or a lounge area in the lobby, as it was often crowded.
"Comfortable, hip and well located"
Stayed at the Cross Hotel for a night in Osaka. The location is perfect in the middle of the busy nightlife of the city. Rooms are big enough and the beds are very comfortable. Internet is free but their routers don't cover all the rooms, so know that depending on where you are placed it might not work at all.
