"Perfect location for the first visitors to Osaka, Japan."
I traveled with my friends who have never been to Japan before. Of course, we chose this hotel based on the review of TripAdvisor and Swissotel Nankai Osaka was a great choice since it is close from tourist spot (Dotonbori) and shopping area. The best thing about the hotel was the convenience from Kansai airport. Especially since we did a lot of shopping during the travel in Osaka, our luggage became very huge and heavy. The hotel's location is very convenient since with escalators, we could reach to the train station so easily! As Osaka is a city that is bright all night, during the two nights and three days we stayed, we actually wasn't at the hotel very long time. Despite that, every staff I met and greeted and even room condition was above my expectation. However, the reason I gave 4 stars is because I missed the turn-down service for the first evening, which was a bit of shock for me; as I expected naturally to happen just as other international chain hotels. Anyway, I am willing to stay once again next visit on upcoming December.
"Worthwhile to have a try!"
Have been to Osaka many times and this is one of my favorite hotels because of its excellent location, good service with many shops, restaurants nearby which is very convenient to overseas visitors. Highly recommend to anyone who is first time to Osaka.
"A great located hotel"
The hotel is located in Osaka Nankai Station, follow the exits for Nankai and the hotel has an entrance from within the station. A grand posh hotel which is also popular locally too. We were checked in early and the rooms although small fully adequate. We had a breakfast at the top floor which was a great selection but very expensive. The hotel is in a great location and easy to reach everywhere in Osaka, including the airport express train. We had to check out at 12 but left our luggage with concierge and was allow d to use the showers in the fitness centre before we left which was a good idea. Would highly recommend.
Location was really great, just above Namba station! Staff were all helpful and respectful. They are all very clear even in email communications and are quite glad to assist to make restaurant bookings if needed. Room size is decent, spacious enough and we had an amazing view of the city (so request for a higher floor). Bed was comfy, slept very very well, and also requested some nice pillows!
"Nice facilities, perfect location"
Location was perfect. Room was very clean. Nice breakfast. Staff was nice. It is right near the Namba station. One drawback was that due to the location, you would not have the quiet, cozy atmosphere. The room was quiet, though.
