Nice rooms, to be honest, I expected it to be bigger but the size is alright. Super comfy beds. I cannot speak more highly of the beds. Free wifi available. Location is superb - located right above the Namba train station, takashimaya and 10-15mins walking distance from the heart of Osaka, Dontobori and it's shopping places.
"Great location and well run property"
My daughter and I stayed at Swisshotel on our last two nights in Japan. We left from Osaka airport. I researched for many days until I realized this hotel is above the Takashimaya store and above the train station. When we left the porter took us and all of our luggage (5) bags to the train to the plane. He helped us buy tickets and put us on the train. It was fantastic! We took the first class car and the trip was easy and so affordable. The location of the hotel is a few blocks from Donburi street and all the stores, restaurants and action in downtown Osaka. We really made the most of our limited time in the city . I loved Osaka. It is the "food" capitol of Japan. Also I have never seen so many drugstores and so much shopping! My daughter liked this hotel the best. We were so tired from our trip that we gave up and had room service. The meal was excellent. I wish we had done this more often! The room was updated and the view was astounding on the executive floor. As with all of the 5 star hotels we visited there was every kind of amenity ( hairbrush, toothbrush, etc). The room was very clean. The room was large for a two bedded room but I think that may have been because of the higher level. The shower was adequate . Overall this hotel was an excellent choice. I was also considering the Intercontinental and the Marriott. We had lunch at the Intercontinental which is beautiful, luxurious and modern but I liked the location and staff at the Swisshotel. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you to the reception desk and most of all to the bell desk for taking such good care of us. It was so amazing to be put on the train . Your last impression of a hotel is incredibly important .
"Perfect Location in Namba"
Stayed for 5D/4N on this hotel to celebrate my husband's birthday in Osaka. After reading the reviews and looking so many times at Google Map for its location, I am very happy with our choice of hotel. Location: From Kansai International Airport (KIX), the Airport Express train makes the trip to hotel so convenient. We took the Rapid Airport Express because it has less stops than the regular free-seating train. It also has assigned comfy seats. The airport is the first stop and Namba is the last stop. This is also the station next to the hotel so you can never go lost. As you exit the station, there is a special door on your left hand side that will bring you to an escalator all the way up on the 5th floor of the building. Then another 1 flight escalator will lead you to the hotel lobby. Checking-in/out: Check in was not an issue, there is no line as we arrived late. Checking out is also no issue as we left early as we have an early flight back. Room: We booked the Junior Suite and the space is more than enough for the 2 of us. The bed is so comfy. My husband liked the fact that they have Nespresso in the room. The bathroom setup is so convenient - the sink and vanity has a wall (with door) separating it from the toilet and shower area. Our room comes with breakfast and lounge access. We had our breakfast on the 36th floor and the view was great! There is enough choices of food for everyone. As for the staff, they are so warm and always have a ready smile for us. Location: So convenient. We walked most of the time to our destinations - 10 minutes to Dotombori, 7 minutes to Kuromon Market, 15 minutes to OCAT. The hotel is also near train, subway and bus stations. Tip: Get a ICOCA IC card as it comes pre-loaded with 1500 yen and 500 yen deposit. It is very convenient as most of the subways and all JR stations accept it.
"Top Notch Service 🖒"
This was our last hotel before we left Japan n going back to our country. And we made a pretty darn good choice. The hotel staffs are very friendlybabd helpful. Their English is 🖒🖒 no need to use ur body language. They know exactly how to reply ur inquiries as soon as possible. The location is also perfecto cause it connected to Kansai Airport Rapid Train Station. They will explain to u in details how to get there n how to buy ur tickets. The view from our room are breathtaking. We stayed on 27th floor and was greeted with View of Osaka City Skyline. We also managed to catch sunset and it was beautiful. The room are quite spacious. And the twin beds are not so tiny so the 4 of us can sleep well. Bathroom 🖒. Ammenities 🖒. All i can said I am happy to choose this hotel😊
"Incredibly convenient location & professional service"
Swissotel Nankai Osaka's location is the best! Right above Namba station from the Nankai line, direct train to and from airport! Tubes, JR, Haruka are right in the same area for easy access to Umeda, Osaka City and other sites. Direct access to the hotel right after you exit Namba station. Outside you have 4 mega malls nearby, LOFT, Namba Park, O1O1, NAMBA City. 5-10 minutes walk to shop at Shinsaibashi, eating around Kuromon Ichiba Market and Dontonburi. Service was really good from staff, we arrived early in thebefore the room was ready, front desk and bell staff stored our luggage and offered us a room to get ready for the day. The breakfast buffet is a little bit pricy, food was good, but the view is amazing: located on the top floor, you pretty much looking down at the entire Osaka from above. Bathroom in the room is a bit dated, fixtures are acrylics and corian, but the room was quite big, we got a room with king bed, and we were able to open 3 suitcases in room, its big in Japanese room standard!
