"Strange window in bathroom...."
The hotel is decent and I did like the location, but there is a window in the bathroom.... With a shade that you can keep down or lift up. In case you want to watch someone go to the bathroom or take a shower..'' It's fine I guess, except when someone needs to use the bathroom at 3am and the bathroom light is turned on. It illuminates into the sleeping area so if you are a light sleeper, it will wake you up. Especially if your bed is right next to the bathroom. It was just very strange to me. I've traveled all around Japan, from one end to the other and I have never stayed in a room like this. Maybe not all of the rooms are like this though'
"Nice and comfortable hotel"
Very nice hotel, especially location is very good, near Dotonbori, the most famous and shopping area. Hotel is clean and tidy. Near subway station so it's convenient to go anywhere in Osaka. The month I visited is March, kind of cool but all rooms have air condition with warm air, make people relaxing and comfortable. And all hotel staff are nice and speak English, don't worry about communication. Best thing is 7-11 store just on the 1st floor of hotel, no matter how late you came back, can buy anything you need.
Stayed at the Holiday Inn Namba overnight. Great location as it was just a short walk from the train station through a pedestrian walkway and just across the canal. Hotel lobby is small with a circular bench in the center. A 7-11 convenience store is right in front of the hotel for things you need. Close by the Glica Running man and shops and restaurants abound. Kumoron Street food is just a 10 minute walk away. Room was well appointed. Love the Toto toilets. Bed was comfy and controls were bedside. Large safe in the room. They also give you pajamas to use, large toiletries, a refrigerator and bottled water. I would definitely recommend this hotel! Will be back!
"Great place to stay"
Great Hotel in the heart of Dotonbori. The rooms are very nice with a comfy bed. Just a bit small like almost everywhere in Japan. Hotel staff is very friendly with good English language skills. Plus there's a 7eleven store directly connected to the hotel. The location is great. In the heart of Dotonbori close to all the restaurants and bars. Subway is quite close and Namba station just a 15min walk away which gives you good connection to KIX airport.
"Perfect location in Namba"
Had a short 26 hour visit to Osaka and I wanted to stay at a hotel central to all the sights and restaurants. The Holiday Inn Namba was a perfect choice! A short 10 minute walk from the train station, through all the shops and restaurants, made it an interesting walk. If I didnt have a suitcase in hand, I would've stopped in a number of places. The hotel is just after the canal. Check in was a breeze. The elevators have a security feature where you have to put your key in. We had a room with a king bed. Beds were confortable and controls were bedside. The room was spacious and comfortable. The Toto toilets are the best! I need one of these now! There is a large safe big enough to fit your computer. they even have slippers and pajamas for you to use! Amenities were surprising generous. There is a 7-11 in front of the hotel where you can get convenience foods. 2 complimentary bottles of water and a refrigerator is offered in the room. I will definitely make this my Osaka HQ next time I return. Only drawback, although minor - a lot of entertainment bars on this street.
