"U won't get cross with this choice"
Cross hotel is 'centrally located' in the midst of Dontobori & Shinsaibashi happening areas, not to mention the other further ones beyond. It's approximately 10-15 mins walk from Nankai Namba (Rapi:t) station (where u get on/off to/from Kansai Airport). Simply, it's all shopping & eating any direction u choose to head, approx 10-15mins away. It's a modern, boutique hotel with a small lobby but doesn't matter much coz check-in was a breeze in 5 mins. The room is adequately spacious for Japan standard, ours was a twin bedroom. It comes with a dressing/bathroom, the latter of a typical Japanese household type with a bath tub & shower area (comes with stool). It provides full set of toiletries & hair dryer (decent power). The room also comes with a safe & fridge (empty), no mini bar. Tea & coffee bags are provided with complimentary water (2 bottles) daily. Unfortunately the voltage is low, my straightener doesn't work. Namba station exit 14 is the closest to the premise.
Everything was in place from booking and requests (extra pillow and same floor as my travel companions) were given. It is very near Dotonbori, restaurants and shopping areas. The room was clean and bigger than the usual Japanese hotel we tried from our visit before. I just love the bathroom and its amenities. Breakfast was good and had variety. Definitely recommending this hotel if traveling with kids.
Location: The perfect location for people looking to be right in the middle of the action. Located right next to Dotonbori and Shinsaibashi, so if that's where you're looking to be, you couldn't pick a better place to stay. About a 3 minute walk from Namba subway station. Right across from a Don Quijote. Inside the hotel was very quiet, despite the bustling location. Room: Our room was huge, especially for Japan. By far the biggest place we stayed. Clean, well appointed, with an actual closet (a rarity in Japanese hotels). Huge bathroom with a separate wet room. I wish our window hadn't been locked shut, but other than that it was great. Stayed on the 6th floor with a great view of the street. Staff were friendly. Floors all have vending machines with beer and drinks. If I return to Osaka, I'd definitely consider staying here again.
It is located behind the Namba Shinsaibashi shopping/walking Street. Very strategic location. We took the breakfast option for 3 days, the food is exactly the same, not a wide spread but just a little bit of everything. Nothing much to be impressed by the hotel, but excellent location. We parked our rental at the back lane of the hotel, the overnight charges for hotel guests were JPY2500 per night.
"Great location, nice amenities"
The location of this hotel is indeed brilliant. The front door opens onto the more elegant/quieter Midosuji (lined by high fashion/name-brand shops), while the back door opens onto the madness of Dotonbori. Namba station is a 5-10 minute walk, and there are 2 trains (Airport Express and Rapit) which can take you to/from the airport. There is a Don Quijote across the street, a Lawsons next door, and a hair salon on the 3rd floor. The breakfast buffet is expansive but does not vary...I grew somewhat tired of the options after a few days. The rooms are adequately sized and well-appointed. I appreciated the free bottled water, coffee/tea, high-quality bathroom amenities, soft comfy pajamas. If you like being in the heart of the action, this hotel is a great option. If you are looking for a more sedate/relaxed stay, maybe not (though the hotel itself is very peaceful). Personally, I would stay in this hotel again next time I'm in Osaka.
