"Great location, worst food "
Location is great. It's actually a few steps away from dotonbori. It has a 7-11 store right on the lobby. Wifi is fast but it is only available in the hotel, unlike in Hong Kong, where they provide a pocket wifi which you can take anywhere. I actually wanted to rate it as 5, but their food really disappointed me. We stayed there for 4days 3nights and their breakfast buffet selection was not changed the whole time; not a single variety. If not for my friends, I would have stayed in an apartment near the area. The experience could have been more delightful. The price we paid was definitely not worth it.
"Good base for discovering Kitchen of Japan!"
We chose this hotel for it's location and also as part of IHG group (for the points). It is a very Good base for discovering Kitchen of Japan since Dotonbori is just steps away. You will be spoilt for shopping and restaurants choices.
"at the heart of namba osaka"
I like when I book a hotel will be close to everything and that's why I choosed holiday inn Namba (Vista Grande Hotel Before). It is very close to dotonbori and shinsaibashi. The room was clean but a bit small if you have a child with you. They have 24 hours 7 eleven attached to the hotel.
"Location Location Location"
Less than 5 minute walk to Dotombori. Average size rooms can just fit 3 people with an extra bed. Even though its close to Dotombori, we did not hear any outside noise at all. The JR Namba station is about 15-20 minute walk and the subway is about 10 minute walk.
"Fine hotel, great location"
As others have pointed out, location is excellent, just off Dotombori. 10-15 minutes walk from Namba station (depending on where you exit). Rooms are clean, spacious and quiet. Friendly staff, good breakfast.
