Holiday Inn is conveniently located about a 10 minute walk from the Namba Station and is about a 2minute walk to Dotonbori. This is where you'll find food galore from street food , cafes and restaurants. Shopping streets are just 3 - 5 mins away where you can shop to your heart's content. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. The room accommodates 2 people comfortably and was clean and neat. Will definitely stay there again if we are to visit Osaka again.
Location of this hotel is really convenient. Located right along the water in Dotonbori area, it is between the shinsaibashi station (Daimaru) and the Namba station (Takashimaya). Lots of food and shopping in the immediate area. Downside is that they are. Era busy and check in time is a strict 3pm ( sometimes 2:30pm). So if you arrive early, you can leave your bags and go out on a walk about the area.
"Hotel Vista Grande Osaka ==> Holiday Inn Osaka Namba"
Used to call Hotel Vista Grande and changed to Holiday Inn Osaka in Nov 2016. Nevertheless, location was still the main attraction of staying here (5 minutes walk to shopping area). Room size was okay in Japanese standard. There was a convenience store right at the hotel. Not recommended for "girls only" since there were gangsters near the hotel after midnight.
"Best in Everything"
The staffs are really kind & helpful. They helped us to book a restaurant & a jumbo taxi to the airport; all end with smiles that we really appreciate. The hotel located in the heart of Dotonbori, probably 1-2 minute/s walk to famous Ichiran Ramen. Overall room was clean and neat also pretty spacious; you can place up to 3 medium luggage & still have room to walk. The hotel also have a direct access to 7 Eleven in the next store which is very convenient if you need to grab some food / drink at anytime.
"The Best Location "
Nothing beats the location of this hotel. It is in the middle of activities of busy Dotonbori street. It has an adjoining convenience store. Nice rooms. The only downside is that the hotel staff is not so helpful. Their answers to your questions are are very minimal. You can't expect full assistance
